Irish White Cross was set up in 1920 to distribute American aid to victims of the Anglo-Irish war. When the fund was wound up in 1922, remaining money was applied to a separate fund to assist the children of those killed or injured in the war. The six children of the McGuone family of Dungannon were among those assisted after the death of their father on the SS 'Argenta' Prison Ship.
Accompanied by a ms note by Anne McGuone Gallagher explaining how her mother's six children benefited from this financial assistance. MS 41,786 /2a
