Reserch on Sr.Elias Devine

Dear Sir,
Teresa Devine, daughter of Dr.Hennessey Devine was born in Tipperary, Ireland, on April 15, 1839. She was one of a family of ten children. The Devine family had lost all its property in the unfortunate persecution of Catholics in Ireland which obliged her to leave her country and secure a teacher's post at Bayonne, France. Later in 1868 she decided to enter the sisterhood known as the "Third Order Regular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel". As a member of the Congregation she received the name Sister Mary Elias of Jesus. Along with two other companions she was sent to India in 1870, to labour in the cause of English education among the Indian girl children of the Province of Travancore.
As a co-foundress, first Superior and Headmistress of Holy Angels Convent, Trivandrum, India, she faced with several foundational difficulties, specially with the overall increase of students in the school, boarding house and orphanage. Therefore it was an immediate need of getting English sisters for the work in the missions, Mother Elias left for Europe in 1900 and founded a Novitiate house named "The Convent of Our Lady of the Mission" at Ypres, Belgium to train the candidates for the Indian mission. In 1905 after sending five well trained sisters to India the Novitiate house was forced to close down due to the lack of candidates.
Thereafter Mother Elias of Jesus moved to sisters of Mercy Convent Bunbury, Western Australia. She taught in that college till 1917. Satisfied as Mother Elias with the sisters and her zealous labour in Bunbury, at the age of 78, she was anxious to devote the remaining years of her life to work for native girls at St.Josephs Orphanage of New Norcia, WA. When her health and strength was hers for sixteen years she gave them gladly to brighten their young lives and in her declining years her prayers went up for them to the Throne of Mercy in greater measure, and her saintly life was an example to one and all.
The early hours of Friday, October 20, 1933, saw the quiet passing away of one who for many years played her part in the upbringing of native girls in St.Josephs Orphanage, New Norcia, WA.
Of all her family (Devine) members pre-deceased her, though one of her sisters died only in 1930 in her 98th year. Now we would love to know more about Mother Mary Elias (Teresa Devine) and her family tree. We have no certificates- either original or attested copies to throw light on the members of her family, parents, relations, her siblings. In Tipperary - the Church where she was baptized- the school she attended,etc etc. If there are living members of the family tree/ Irish or others wherever they be in Ireland or elsewhere would be truly appreciated.
with regards

Thank you for your message. I really don't know where my great grand parents, Dionisi, are buried. I do know they were from Lucoli.

Are you in Italy? Can you help me find their graves? I live in Texas.

Best wishes, Cindy Dionisi Powers

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
Just received this message from a friend who was born and still lives in Izmir. Hope this helps you.

"Actually its much smaller, about a third of the size of Pasakopru. Its called Karsiyaka (or Sogukkuyu) Catholic cemetery. It is strictly Catholic and mainly Italian."

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
No Eman, I'm sorry I don't know the name of the other Christian Cemetery in/near Izmir. I only know I was told it was a much larger and well care far Christian Cemetery. I can write one of my friends in Izmir in hopes he will know.

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
In April and May I did photograph about 100 stones in the Pasakopru Christian Cemetery. And hope on my next trip to get more photographs if possible. Since I do not have a Turkish keyboard its almost impossible to list some of the burials in Pasakopru Christian Cemetery

A much larger Christian cemetery is located in another province of Izmir. I did not get to visit this cemetery.

Sr Marguerite Sheridan, memorial 128493034. I've visited the Pasakopru Christian Cemetery at Konak Izmir this year. And photographed man y of the stones. I plan on visiting in 2016. None of the graves are listed under a plot number. In fact many of the graves do not have any location listed.

Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!

Thanks for the transfer. I had not heard yet. He had been very sick since his stroke a year or two ago. May he rest in Peace.

headstone photo for BIshop Innocent Lotocky
I will be at this cemetery on Monday and am willing to take photos for you. Is it possible for you to call the cemetery office to get the grave locations? Phone 773-276-4537
Many of the headstones in this cemetery are written in Ukrainian Cyrillic script so I can only locate them if I have the grave location or at least the section.

Perhaps you would like to create a memorial for Diomede Cardinal Falconio?

RE: Father Maurus
The plot at Calvary is not large, I believe all the tombstones have been taking. I will look next time I go.

Since I keep 'running across' you here in so many of my searches here, I would like to refer you to my memorial for Sir Daniel Donohue #139694738, of which I think perhaps you might find interesting. Thanks for looking.

Do you have a photo of Cardinal Bevilacqua's crypt front that can be posted at his memorial or know where one can be obtained?

Added by Bernard Johnson on Apr 02, 2015 11:41 PM

RE: Holy Cross
On further thought perhaps we should photograph each of them on that wall and you can possibly create memorials for those not already listed. Beneficial?

Added by Windermereguy on Apr 01, 2015 5:12 AM

RE: Holy Cross
Good morning. No I did not. I was working exclusively from the list of requests which are listed in the mobile version (app.) I would offer my daughter as a possible solution. She will be completing this cemetery once I return to our western Canadian home for 6 months later next week. I will pass it to her on your behalf. Sound ok?

Cardinal von Bettinger
Your efforts have paid off once again, Cardinal von Bettinger was approved as famous. Yet again, an administrator did not pay attention and both of our names ended up as the biographer:
I have written to them once again to delete my name, since you were the one who so eloquently had written the biography.
Thank You
