Lawless Family
The next time someone is in the St Patrick Cemetery, north of Peoria, just east of Hwy 40, would you please take photos of

Find A Grave# 137839083 William Lawless - Husband
Find A Grave# 137839084 Frances Lawless - Wife
Find A Grave# 137839085 James Lawless - son of above
Find A Grave# 137839086 Thomas Lawless - son of above

I am searching for the mother of William, Bridget Lawless, who came to Peoria in 1854 with her children. The info I have is that she passed between 1860 and 1870. But I also have info that they farmed in Germanville Township; Livingston County, Marshall County and Saratoga Township. I also don't know how many children Bridget and her husband (who died in Ireland) had.

One of Bridget's children, Patrick Joseph Lawless, Sr. Find A Grave# 110288078, is the father of Jennie Lawless Corbett Find A Grave# 118310782, my late husbands grandmother.

Thank you for your assistance.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I am xferring to him, and asking him to retain my link and the sentence about his id #. He may or may not do that. My mem is older and based on info provided by a family member, but if the image was found where he has it, presumably he has a better location.

I cannot call that one, I have my (older) memorial in one cem, and Glenn has it in another. I assume that the picture was taken there, so I will have to contact him and see if we can come to an arrangement.

Letitia Humphrey Boblit
I notice that you are managing the memorial for Letitia. (Wife of Jesse Boblit, buried at Wright Cemetery in Findlay.) Her place of burial is shown as not known. However, there is a full date of birth for her on the memorial and a year of death. Do you have access to the source of those dates? Thanks!
