A number of physicians' names reoccur from time to time in the few records of Lowell's Irish. One of them was a Dr. Green, a Yankee who ministered to the needs of the early irish community. As time passed other names began appearing as well. But Arthur Quinn Phelan was one of their own. Here is his story brought to us by guest blogger, Rosemary K. Nunnally. We greatly appreciate her contribution to recording the story of the Irish in Lowell and invite others to submit their stories as well. Every family has a story. What is yours?
