Bridget Ronan
I will keep looking for her, but haven't found her yet. It seems she might have passed around August 1889, by husband's obit.

Added by cataholic4ever on Nov 25, 2015 9:18 AM

Martin's obit listing wife passed away 12 years ago last month (obit says) plus daughter Mary is listed as still alive in 1901. Daughter Annie is not listed so maybe she passed before father?

Altoona Tribune
September 9, 1901

At 4:35 o'clock Saturday morning Marin Ronan, an old and respected resident, died at his home, 2222 Eleventh avenue, of diseases incident to old age. Deceased was born in Mayo county, Ireland, June 22, 1822. In 1851 with his wife he came to America and settled in this city and was employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad company until a year ago when he was placed on the retired list. He was a member of St. John's Catholic church and was much esteemed by a large circle of friends. He was married April 25, 1847 to Bridget Mullen who preceded him to the grave twelve years ago last month. He is survived by these children: William and Michael Ronan, Pennsylvania railroad engineers, and Mary and Bridget. The funeral will take place this morning, leaving his late home at 8:30 o'clock and proceeding to St. John's church where requiem high mass will be celebrated. Interment will be made in St.John's cemetery.

RE: Martin and Bridget Ronan
I will keep looking into the family. So, far I checked sons, Michael & William's obits, and neither say parents survive them. Sometimes you can get lucky and they might say in a child's obit when the parents died or get some type of info at least. But, no luck yet.

RE: Richard & Eliza Rowan
Dear Father Albert Ledoux,
Sorry about the edit request. Even though I have been a member for 2 years I have not done edit request since when I first joined. I spent awhile trying to figure out how to do them. After several I think I have it figured out now. A lot of my husband ancestors are buried in St. John's cemetery. The pictures I took 19 years ago were not a good quality so I appreciate you photographing the cemetery now.

Richard & Eliza Rowan

Thank you for making the memorial for Richard Rowan. I am wondering where you got his children's names of Martin, Bridget, Annie and Mary?

Richard Rowan and Elizabeth Lanaghan Rowan are my husbands great great grandparents. He and his wife are buried in Saint John's cemetery. They had 10 children - John P., Richard, James Joseph, Anne Estella, Mary Alice (my husbands great grandmother who is buried in Calvary cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA), Margaret R., William P, Ellen, Peter Francis & Elizabeth Joan. It seems like him and his wife are correct but the kids do not fit unless they had another 4 that I am unaware of. The tombstone pictures are very hard to read are you sure they are their children? If so I guess I need to dig a little further into the family.

Could you please link their daughter Mary Alice Rowan Gilmartin to them? Find A Grave Memorial# 116565486

Thank you for all you do.

RE: O'Toole
I don't have any Sullivans to go with my O'Toole's

I'm not sure if it was a grandchild (Sullivan) and since he might have been related they added him to the monument? Or if he lived with them and died at their residence?

I will keep looking in to this

Leader family
Hi, I have been trying to figure out the LEADER family too and I can't find Alexander??

I have found William S. Leader & Caroline in the 1870 census (No kids yet)

1880 children Flora 9, James 7, Francis 5, Mary E. 1

1900 Florence 28, James W. 27, Harry 21, Viola 5

1910 Florence 38, James W. 37, Viola 15

The kids seem to stay the same
James W.

Not sure about Harry or Alexander and I have hit a brick wall with Viola (So far)

Do you know more about Alexander?
Both he and James have almost similar dates of birth and death. But, I did find everyone's obits (except for Alexander & Viola or this Harry)

RE: military markers
Then I guess it is a good thing to keep posting their service on memorials...Thanks for the quick response and all the edits. I promise to finish this part of my family soon. I do appreciate the edits. The more complete the info on them the more of their personnel story is shared. Have a good evening.

Is there a chance you would know of the location of Sr. Mary Placida Craver's burial place? Or better, location and perhaps a photo?

Catherine Smith
Wondering if anyone can confirm the following. In the Conewago Death and Burial Records (hard copy I have from 1992-93), it lists Catherine Smith two times.
Pg 37 "Smith, Catherine d/o John & Mary 5/4/1807 - 4/25/1825, grave A/11/G3" and on Pg 39 "jCatherine d/o John and Mary b 5/4/1807 d 4/25/1823 a 16y 11m 21d, grave B/17/G2"
Are there two grave markers, if so which is correct; was she moved when parent passed? Thanks Vicki from Baltimore
