Luke emigrated from Curramaeigh, Kilkerrin, Co. Galway in 1922 at 20 years of age. He met and courted Mary Ellen Doherty from Fiddane, Kilkerrin, Co. Galway, who came to the U.S. in 1924.
Luke and Mary Ellen married in 1927 and had five children: Luke B., Gerard, Eileen, Theresea, John and Richard.
Mary Ellen worked as a domestic prior to her marriage. Luke found work as a truck driver for Socony Mobil Oil Co. For 38 years he delivered gasoline in and around Brooklyn.
The above picture was taken in August 1972, on the front steps of the Brooklyn, New York home of Luke’s oldest son, Luke B. Noone, as the clan gathered on the first anniversary of Luke’s death. Mary Ellen Noone is seated left. ♦
