A fellow researcher has shared the following:
Tessa Claffey was born Tessa Nora Large 16 Oct 1896.
I cannot identify when she married William Claffey but they
are in the 1930 census with a horrendously transcribed
last name. They are listed in Franklin Co. Ohio as
William Edoffey, head, born 1896. Both parents born
in Ohio. Tessa born 1897, she and both parents born in KY.
Daughter Maryoret born 1920 age 10. Maryornet is
actually Margaret Ellen Claffey born 28 June 1919 in
Franklin Co. Ohio. Tessa died in Franklin Co. Ohio
16 June 1982 as a widow. I strongly believe her husband
is the William Claffey who died in Franklin Co. Ohio
12 Dec 1958. I have been unable to find them on the1920
