Margaret Hickey
Hi Don
Thanks so much for posting the memorial for Margaret Hickey as I am one of her descendants.
The bottom of the grave states she was from Tipperary and noted the Parish, but I can't make out what it says. I'm trying to figure out who her parents were and the Parish would be very helpful. Someone on said it says "Rouen" but that's not listed as a Parish in Tippereary. I even had my DNA match from the U.K. take a look and he's stumped too!
Hoping you can shed some light.
Thank you so much!!

RE: Butte Cronin Families
You are most welcome Don. Happy to help. I would check both cemeteries for you but at the moment they are both buried in snow. Will do some looking in block files for grave locations, however, and get back to you on these Cronin burials. Pat

Con Cronin - just figured it out!
Hi again. Just figured out the issues. Con Cronin who died in 1897 was in a mining accident at the Diamond Mine and is buried at St.Patricks Cemetery in Butte. #34491551. I should have seen this right away as Holy Cross wasn't even an established cemetery in 1897. Of interest also about Con's mining death, his name is on a miner's memorial wall at the World Mining Museum here in Butte. The museum is closed in winter but they will do a rubbing of his name for you of his name if you send a SASE and his information. I can do a photo for you but not until May when they open.

This website will give you photos of the mine yard when it was in operation.

And you can Google Bell Diamond Mine, Butte, MT for more information as this is what it is now called on the maps.

Here's another photo link that is very nice:

The Bell Diamond headfame is quite lovely sitting up on the hill acting as a sentinel over the town.

Hope this helps! Pat

Con and Daniel Cronin - Holy Cross Cemetery - Butte, MT
Don, could you write me at my email address regarding these graves and your edit. I'm very interested in the differences in the dates of death. The edit you sent is for a Con Cronin who died in a mining accident at the Diamond Mine here in Butte. I'm not sure this memorial is your Con Cronin. Thanks! Pat

Re: Eugeny Jean Dascomb
I would link her to her biological parents with the facts of adoption by the Perrys with their memorial numbers in the bio line She should have maiden name of Bromley/Perry. This is how I listed my grandmother's memorial who was adopted after her mother died, she is linked to her biological parents. True genealogy should be biological even though we loved the people that raised her & knew only as grandparents of my mother & great grandparents to me, this is why I put their memorial numbers in my grandmother's bio line.

Thanks for posting the photo of Eli's headstone. I worked long and hard for nearly two years to get the Veterans to make that marker and get it placed. His marker was gone, like so many in Riverside Cemetery that have been stolen and vandalized. I wanted it placed in time for the 200th anniversary of the end of the War of 1812, as he fought in that last battle when the British surrendered. That anniversary date was on Sept. 11, 2014, but it was not until the spring of 2015 after the snow melted that it was placed.

Don -

You have done an outstanding job of photographing and linking the Monty Memorials together. I have been able to update a lot of my Monty genealogy using your Headstone Photos, Newspaper Clippings and my Monty Book "The Descendants of Jean Monty," by Jeanne R. Monty (1999). I am especially pleased with the memorial you did for my 5th Great Grandfather James "Jacques" Monty (155957997). I can't thank you enough for the tremendous job you have done!!!
