I just noticed you have a now redundant photo request for Hugh's (Garrahan spelling) grave.
Anyway, the Frenchtown Cemetery (aka St. Patrick's) was about a mile away in the village of Beaver Brook (aka Frenchtown). http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2235553&CScn=st.+patrick&CScntry=4&CSst=40&CScnty=2280&

Thanks for the information regarding Hugh Garrahan. I use the spellings found in Bates for my Civil War cemetery findings, and they are not always the same as the spelling on grave markers. I did, however, make a note on Hugh's memorial page about the alternative spelling. Using the Bates' spelling makes it easier for anyone looking for Civil War participants and using Bates as a resource is the best one we have! However, I changed the info to your suggestion since I see you have him linked to family.
I did a little digging and found Hugh's obit - see the memorial page. Hugh was apparently disinterred and reburied in McAdoo. The Frenchtown Cemetery (aka St. Patrick's) was undermined and many burials were moved to McAdoo at the turn of the 20th Century.

Mike..thanks so much for trying for us. The census still shows her being there in 1875, her birth year. Only thing I can think of is the family couldn't afford a burial lot and buried her by their home. I don't know the address of their home, so I can't check to see if there was a family burial plot on their farm either.
Thank you anyway...I appreciate your efforts!
