Arch and Annie McEwan and Family
Thank you very much Father Ledoux! I can't express enough what it means to me to know where the bodies of these relatives of mine are resting. I can now learn more, possibly place grave markers, and visit sometime in the future. I am deeply grateful for your volunteerism and continuous work to help families connect. Thank you!

John William McEwan
Hello Mr. Ledoux (or is it Father Ledoux?), I have been trying to find my mom's siblings who were either stillborn, died as an infant or died as a toddler. This John William is one of her brothers and I am so happy to see your work on this. Did you get John's information from records, or is there a stone? My grandmother, Annie Smith McEwan was a devout Catholic so I was hoping all her children would be buried in Catholic Cemeteries, but most likely, without stones. Do you know if there are any other children of Archibald and Annie McEwan buried here? John had a twin brother, Albert who died within two or three years of John and I had also hoped they were buried together. Is there anything else you can tell me? I am very grateful to you for your generous giving of yourself. Thank you!
Theresa

RE: Augustine Christy
Or he could be in another local cemetery as yet undocumented (meaning his grave). Funny, though, because somewhere the record states that Archibald Christy is buried there (Souvenir of Loretto Centenary maybe?) and there is no stone at St. Mike's for him. So one or more of the former priests were keeping some records. Maybe it was a hobby of theirs too! :)

Thanks for the information.

Do you mind if I pick your brain from time to time?

RE: Augustine Christy
Ya, I don't know how I missed that, his wife is in the same cemetery! Thanks.

Is there some way to get a complete burial list from St. Mike's in Loretto? I'm curious if there are other Christys there besides the known posted ones. I'm particularly keen to find out what happened to Archibald's son Sylvester as he seems to lived his whole life around there. I'm min. 3 hours away so it's not an easy day trip. Thanks again. Kevin.

Hello!
Memorial #131305882 is actually MATHIAS W., not Tobias. Mathias was my great-grandfather. He was born on 12/27/1851 in Loretto and died 1/27/1889 in Loretto. He was married to Josephine Fechter (5/5/1861 - 10/20/1920, both in Loretto). Looks like they ran out of room on the headstone for her entire maiden name, doesn't it. I've been wondering why Josephine was on Find-a-grave, but Mathias wasn't. I zoomed in on the photo of Josephine's headstone and...there he was! They were married on July 15, 1884 in Loretto.

Actually, now that I've typed that all out, would you consider transferring both Mathias and Josephine (#131305985) to me?

Thank you for all the wonderful work you've put into the St. Michael's Cemetery listing. I took my daughter to see Prince Gallitzen's tomb four years ago and we wandered the old part of the cemetery a bit. My great (not sure how many greats at this moment)-grandparents were Hugh McConnell and Elizabeth Walters who were adopted by Father Gallitzen. What an amazing man he was!

Free Family
Dear Father,
I received a message last year where you suggested I correct the name of an "Elizabeth" to match her grave name. I have a photo of the grave stone and it says John and Margaret G. FREE.
You must be referring to another person with the last name Free.
I appreciate the link you provided for John Free in St. Patrick's Cemetery, in Gallitzen.

Do you have access to the Free family sacrament records. Margaret and John Free were my great grandparents. What is the official process of getting a copy of these records considering they are my relatives. It may shed more light on where they were from, and who their parents were. Also, the baptism records of their children; Edward Joseph Free (1878 - 1975)
Bertha Free (1880 - ukn)
Dorothea Anne Free (10 Jul 1887-1966)


Your message to me:

Greetings,

Find A Grave contributor Albert Ledoux has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Elizabeth Free.
Link to memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=100514919
Link to contributor profile: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=46511171

Their suggestion:
-------------------------
In light of the lady's name on the tombstone, you might want to change the way you have her listed.

You might also connect her to her husband via the family links.
John: 100514894
