In 1900, the John KILDEA family was renting 307 3rd Ave, Spokane, and comprised John P (b Mar 1860 Canada (parents b Ireland), immigrated 1880/87, naturalized; saloon keeper, ; and Anna S (BLESSING), b Dec 1868 MN (parents b Germany), married 8 years, 3 births, 2 living; children: Joseph A, b Dec 1895 WA, and Agnes M, b Mar 1898 WA.

In 1910, Agnes was a resident (boarding) student at the Academy. Her father is in Spokane, age 48, widowed, working as a miner, living at the Empire Hotel. I was unable to find her mother or brother.
In 1916, Agnes lived in Cd'A, with Mrs Theresa M (KILDEA) GRAHAM (widow of Capt. James) on E Lakeshore Drive (home assessed value, $75K in 1916). — City Directory. Theresa was a daughter of Patrick & Maria (CROWDER) KILDEA, and thus probably a cousin of Agnes.
In 1920, Agnes, 21 CAN, was living at the Academy, working as a stenographer. Family not found.
In 1927, Agnes was a stenographer at Cascade Lumber, in Yakima. --city directory. By 1934 & 1936, she was a steno in Los Angeles (KILDEA) --voter records. In 1935 and 1940, she reportedly lived in Inglewood with husband, Theodore Elmer DICKEY (1902-1945). Theodore was married 25 Aug 1938 at Phoenix AZ to Agnes M STEPHENS, so perhaps Agnes was previously married. Agnes died 3 Dec 1971.
