      Dear Ms. Carol Sullivan: After research, we have found the baptismal registration of Mary Esther Burke, child of Edward J. Burke, from Springfield, Mass., and Mary E. Sullivan, from Hartford, CT, born on October 9, 1915 and baptized on October 31, 1915 by Rev. Father J.E. Doherty, in All Souls Church, Springfield, Mass.
