Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad the photos were helpful. I think I did not realize these were duplicates because I initially misread the surname as Francis, not realizing it was John's middle name, and later caught the error and corrected them.I don't think the memorials can be merged so I added the photos to the prior ones and deleted mine. Best of luck with your research!

Transferred John over to you. What an amazing obituary he has! I'm jealous. Been going through the Philadelphia Inquirer for my ancestors and I'm lucky to get a death date and place of burial!

Greetings--This is my 3rd great-grandfather. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial over to me. That way I can add all of his other information.

Iwill try this time not to send a blank message. I am descended from Joseph Jones, who married Mary Covalt. We lived in Cincinnati for twenty years off and on, but I wasn't so interested in genealogy at that point. I have also discovered several other branches of my tree who lived in the Cincinnati area. My Jones ancestors moved on to Fountain County, Indiana, where one of them married B F Kell, my great great grandfather.

RE: Hello there
Well, I do know that there was at least one other Patrick Dillon, who died at the end of 1863. This one is not the right one as there was a probate ad which listed his survivors. He lived in Cohoes and was about 42. I found the probate ad and him in the census.

RE: hello there...
The obit is not an obit - just a death notice with no information about family - so, we can't be positive it's the right Patrick Dillon.

St. John's & St. Mary's are two different defunct cemeteries
The Dillons who had been buried at St. John's, but who should no longer be there, are identified at the Troy Irish Genealogy Society website. If your Dillons had been at St. John's, odds are that they're at Calvary Cemetery in Glenmont, or St. Agnes Cemetery in Menands.

Rosa Warren at Memory Hill in Marshall Co. AL
Hello and Happy New Year. I have found the stones for this family. This stone is shared between Martha E, Tom J, Lerma, Martha E, Wm J, Rosa, and Roy Warren. Have posted pics on their memorials. These flat footstone markers are beginning to wear down and get covered up. Have a great year. Rosa's stone has her maiden name as Hagwood. Will ask for an edit due to this, but stones can be wrong. Thanks.

RE: Hello sent your way...
I noticed you updated Patrick Dillon's memorial, obviously with information I sent our mutual friend, but didn't include the date of his death, other than the year. You do know we can't know for certain that the information I found is the right Patrick Dillon. If it is the right Patrick Dillon, the funeral was at St Mary's. Would the burial originally been at St John's - didn't the church have a churchyard? I agree that the burial would have been moved to St Agnes, as that cemetery opened up at the same time the present St Mary's was built (1867). I don't know Catholic traditions, but other churches did have churchyards - unless St John's was St Mary's burying site.

Patrick Dillon
Now I really want to talk with you. I just found the memorial you put up for Patrick Dillon. Please contact me via my e-mail at, especially since we appear to be working on the same stuff. I think I may have found his funeral notice in the Albany papers. 1864, but it puts his birth as 1786.

Mary Dillons birthdate
I noticed you have put her birthdate on the record. I can tell you that it is correct as I have obtained her death certificate and it is on there. Her death certificate states she died on board the "Newark" at the SP Mole - which is the long wharf terminus of the trancontinental railroad that served passengers between San Francisco and the East Bay. The death certificate states her mother's maiden name isn't known, but her father was Patrick Dillon.

Mary Dillon McIntyre d 4/19/1906 Alameda county
I also am trying to figure out her date of birth. If the cemetery records say she was 68 years, 3 months, 27 days old, I get she was born in January 1838 not December 1831. Can you enlighten me? I also notice the variable dates on census records! This woman was the half sister of my gr - gr grandfather James Campbell. I had been searching for her and her sister Charlotte (d 1909 San Francisco).
Any information you may possess would be gratefully received :).
