Today would have been the 68th birthday of my mother, Sharyn Senecal Coughlin.
I found this "note" in the "Au Sable Forks" news section (or as I like to call it "the local gossip") of The Adirondack Record-Post of January 14, 1954:
Here is a birthday photo that may (or may not) be from above birthday party!!
It was a party weekend in the old Forks that weekend as Karen Nolette also had a party the day before:
So to my Mom and all other Capricorns out there, Happy Birthday!!

AU SABLE FORKS - Agnes Coughin, 89, died Tuesday at the CVPH Medical Center.
She was born Dec. 20, 1881 in New York, the daughter of John and Mary (Dawne) Williams.
Survivors include three sons, Bernard J. Coughlin of Syracuse, David F. Coughlin of Jay and Daniel E. Coughlin of Leister, Mass.; two daughters, Anne Thompson of Plattsburgh and Elizabeth Coughlin of Au Sable Forks; 16 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren.
Calling hours at the Zaumetzer-Sprague Funeral Home will be today and Thursday form 2 to 45 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral will be Friday at 10 a.m. from the Holy Name Church. Entombment will be in the church cemetery.
Agnes Coughlin is my paternal great grandmother.
Noticed the birth year is listed as 1881 but other sources, including tombstone, state 1883. She went by her middle name of "Agnes" and her first name was "Bridget". Also have yet another spelling for her mother's surname that I have found as Dwan, Duane, Devan....and I'm sure there are more!!
