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.

Old St. Joseph
Do you happen to know where the records are from the old St. Joseph? I am looking for the baptismal records of my Dad, Joe Fitzgerald and his siblings, Annie, and John. I have the records for his youngest sister and brother, Ollie and Raymond from St. Joseph.

Thanks for all your work on this site. Found some other relatives last night that you posted which helped me knock down a brick wall, Hanrahans.

Also, I think it was yourself who signed in 1950 a duplicate record of my baptism at St. Joe's. So we cross paths again.

Bless you,
Shirley Fitzgerald Holdahl

Baltz/Taylor/Burns families
Hi Father,
Just wanted to thank you for the work, and time you have put in as volunteer contributor for Find a Grave. My mom was a Baltz, the St. Joe's Baltzs are first cousins. I have worked on the Baltz and Ehemann and my paternal side of the family the Taylor and Burns families. I often see your and Father Nolan's work when I visit this site. My husband and I have made trips to Loretto, and Lawrenceburg to visit cemeteries and take pictures, hope to go to McEwen next to visit my great grandmother's grave or rather try to find the approximate place. I understand there was a fire and her marker was one that was lost in the fire. Finding all these memories means the world to me.

Tune Family Photos in Calvary Cemetery
Thanks so very much for the wonderful photos of my family & for taking the group photo showing the surrounding area.

I see the daughter Jennie Hudson Tune in Section 12, Lot 4 was not claimed & wondered if there was no gravestone for her.

Would you mind if I kept a copy of these treasures for my files & credit you as the submitter? Your work at this site is greatly appreciated.

Gloria J. Tune

Fitzgerald Family
If you happen to run across a Paulist priest or brother who is associated with this family, will you let me know? When my sister and I were young, my Dad took us downtown Chicago to hear the Paulist choir and to meet his cousin from Nashville who was a member. He may have been a Curran/Bailey. The Bailey kids last names are Ridge, Martin, Russel, Delvin, Curran, Gattis, and Hite. I believe they all went to Incarnation.

RE: # 137102602
I don't have any pictures of St. Joseph's. Like you, I have been searching for one for a very long time. I will let you know if I come across any and please do the same for me. To think something so historical and beautiful was razed for a freeway!
Thanks again for all your help with my Fitzgerald Family. I am still searching Ireland records for their first immigrant ancestor.
Did you happen to know my Aunt Annie, Sister Margaret Mary OSM?

Dear Father,
Thank you so much for posting the memorial for Joseph Nathaniel Fitzgerald, my first cousin though years apart. I had no idea he was in the service and am very please to know that. It is amazing what we don't know about our own generation. I am always so happy when I find some bit of family history that took place during my own lifetime. I see you are at Incarnation, very dear to my heart because of the family members who were associated with that Church. I, myself, was baptized at the old St. Joseph's.

RE: Breens
His name is James Walsh, and according to the book, Tennessee Tombstone Inscriptions and Manuscripts, he died July 24,1871, age 60. I'm trying to figure out if this might be my Great great GF. I have not found a death certificate, nor does his name appear in the database of burials on the Calvary website. A few years ago I asked at the office at Calvary. the couldn't find anything but suggested I walk the old area behind the office. I've done that several times but I haven't found him. The Tennessee Tombstone book, which I have, says that the Calvary Records were "compiled" by Elizabeth C. Breen in 1933 (which is ironic in and of itself and is another question I have - are those Breens related to mine? I feel Frs. Phillip and Joe Pat could answer that one). But compiled from what? What was she looking at that said James Walsh age 61 died (or was buried) on July 24, 1871? I don't know, but that's essentially what I'm trying to find. Are there any church records that show burials from that time period? Or any other records you know of? I've even checked the obits in the newspaper around that time. Are there any church records that show parishioners at that time? His age and death fits my theory of how the Walshes and Breens came to know each other. Any kind of corroborating information at all may help me.
