Bio and Links
I am a Roman Catholic priest currently serving as the pastor of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, Tennessee. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, attended Notre Dame High School there, graduated from St. Meinrad Seminary College in St. Meinrad, IN, in 1977. I started graduate studies in Rome, Italy at the Gregorianum University and completed studies at the Catholic University of America. I received my Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics for the Aquinas Insititute of Theology on the Campus of St. Louis University in 2011. I have been "digging up relatives" since 1973.

"And so it shall be."
Today was a very special event! "Shirt-tail relatives" and I got together and it was genealogy.....more genealogy....more genealogy, etc. My brain is overworked but it was wonderful!

I had communicated with these people via e-mail and snail mail but this was face to face and SO GOOD. Saturday is the Dunn County Genealogical Society meeting and more genealogy with other friends. Sunday is a party with more shirt-tail relatives!
This truly is my kind of holiday time!

Carpe Diem!

Tusen takk! Adding information is good and helpful for those that come after us. Do be careful in your "digging up relatives" as some are best left to quietly rest in peace/pieces!

Rev. Steiner:
My name is Kevin Kern, and I got your name from and from the entries you made for Calvary Cemetery in Nashville. I am an avid researcher of my family history. I live in Memphis, but my grandmother was from Nashville. Her maiden name was Marguerite Breen, and several of the Breens you created entries for were her aunts and uncles (Patrick J., Jr., Philip Paul). I'm actually related to Fr. Phillip Breen and Fr. Joe Pat Breen there in Nashville, although I've never really known them. Are you also a Breen? I would love to talk to you. I've actually been to your church searching for family history.

I would love to hear from you. Thanks very much.

RE: Margaret Reilly Mulvihill
Many, many thanks, Fr. Ed! Ms. Baltz might be my best starting point, because she might be able to find John Riley (Junior) as well as helping me with his mother, my gr-gr-grandmother Nancy Riley. Nancy moved to Nashville to live with a daughter after she was widowed. They lived at 1114 Laurel Avenue, so they probably attended a parish church rather than the Cathedral.

Anyway, thanks for volunteering with Find-a-Grave and thanks for your help with my wayward Rileys! :-)

RE: Margaret Reilly Mulvihill
Great! Thanks so much, Fr. Ed. I never knew Maggie Mulvihill but she was my grandfather's cousin (their fathers were brothers). I won't request administration of her memorial in case one of her descendants wants to manage it.

I didn't realize the Cathedral records couldn't be published. Do you know if the Diocese has old records from the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged? I'm trying to track down another Riley great-great-uncle (John Riley) who was living in the Home in the 1940 Census (age 69). There are several John Rileys interred in Calvary but I don't know which one he is. I haven't been able to find a death record from the state for him, so I thought if there were still records from the Home, they might shed some light on his date of death.

Anyway, thanks for your help!

Margaret Reilly Mulvihill
Fr. Steiner, would you mind linking Margaret Reilly Mulvihill to her parents? They are also buried in Calvary along with many of her sibs. Her father was James Francis Riley (#111534238) and her mother was Margaret "Maggie" Cahill Riley (#111534194).

Also, has anyone ever indexed the baptismal/confirmation/wedding/funeral records at the Cathedral?

Many thanks,

Mary Reagan

I've linked Sarah to her father. Thanks for the information. If you are a relative, and would like a transfer, please let me know.
