Could you give us the name of your mother's sister, the approximate birth years of both girls, and where they lived prior to being removed from their mother's care? This information might help us to find information about their parents.
The Good Shepherd Convent School for Girls is now a nursing home. Perhaps if you contacted them, they could tell you where the records might be. There address is in the last paragraph of this article Sisters Offer Caring Presence at Good Shepherd Since 1900 | News, Sports, Jobs - The Intelligencer
Good afternoon Susannah,
Mary Louise Fallon DOB 12/23/1916 Wheeling WV Good Shepherd Convent (She might have become a nun or maybe was a resident of the school for girls)
Margaret Katherine Fallon DOB 11/21/1920 but we thought her DOB was 11/14/1918
I believe they may have lived in Keyser Virginia or Grantsville MD
There were 2 brothers, Joseph & Lewis Fallon

Found some information on familysearch.org......family search is a free website, you will need to register to see the following information.
Voter record for Lewis E Fallon, Residence McCoole, Maryland, Postal Address Keyser, West Virginia, Born 1918
Lewis Eugene Fallon Birth Record
Lewis Fallon in 1940 census, lived with grandparents named Miller
1920 Census shows Mary, Mary Louise (Louise spelled wrong on record) and Eugene living with the grandparents, the Millers
Their parents were Martin Thomas Fallon, b. 1884 or 1885, and Mary Agnes Fallon (nee Miller) according to the birth records in Harrison Co, WV for Mary Louise and Lewis Eugene Fallon. Martin Fallon worked as a brakeman for the B & O Railroad. This is his WWI draft card.
In 1920 Martin is living in New Creek, Mineral Co, WV Ancestry.com - 1920 United States Federal Census and Mary Agnes is living in Westernport, Allegany Co, PA with her parents and Mary Louise (age 3) and Eugene (age 1). Ancestry.com - 1920 United States Federal Census
Martin Fallon dies in a train accident on 20 October 1925.
Good Morning Susannah,
Thank you so much for your efforts! Yes, Martin & Mary are their parents. It took me a bit to figure out how to respond to your answers, (you have to sign in or the wheel just spins & spins).
I had them in my notes but couldn't tie the family together because of a different birthdate we had for Margaret and a name discrepancy for her Father. found a newspaper article 2 nights ago re; a civil court case in MD that ties the family together & confirmed with no doubts!
