Vincent P. Flynn's residence was Shrewsbury, MA, NOT Sutton, MA.  He lived in Shrewsbury, MA from 1946 until his death in 2010 in the home he built for his wife, Dorothy Eleanor (Morton) Flynn.

Vincent P. Flynn's Marriage to Dorothy Morton

Cape Elizabeth, ME

Vincent Flynn was in the Navy during World War II, and once he separated from the Navy he spent some time in the Coast Guard.  While in the Coast Guard he spent some time as the keeper of Ram Island Ledge Lighthouse in Casco Bay, about one mile off the coast of Cape Elizabeth, ME and Portland Head Light (Fort Williams). During his time off he would row his boat to shore and had a chance meeting with Dorothy Eleanor Morton, who lived with her parents, Frank E. Morton, Jr., and Katherine Mabel (Loveitt) Morton, at Birch Knolls, near the beach. They dated for three months.  Vincent went home to visit his family (mother, Ellen T. "Nellie" [Sullivan] Flynn, and various brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and cousins) in Shrewsbury, MA, and told them he and Dorothy had gotten married (they hadn't, but he was so sure it would happen that he told his family he was married. He called Dorothy and said, "Dot, we have to get married." He proceeded to tell her what he told his family. She did, fortunately for Vincent, say yes. Over the years Dorothy would tell the story of how they met, and say, "what if I had said no?"  The important thing was that she said yes! Dorothy was the love of his life!

Dorothy died on November 12, 1986.
