Please feel free to use any of my photos for your own research. If I find additional information (plot location or burial date) I type it in the photo caption, so be sure to check the caption. Most of the memorials I have added are extra photos taken while fulfilling a photo request and are not family. I am glad to transfer. sbritta1ATyahoo.com.

Diggers chance...
A stone of yours (used in memorial 135483757) for the Byrne family in F Block 7 Lot 19 at Calvary is a column that appears to have 4 sets of inscriptions:
One is for Richard and Catherine Byrne
A second is for Frank and Mary Bryne
A third is for Catherine Byrne Larkin and Patrick Byrne.

I know this is a shot in the dark but I'm trying to solve a puzzle. Is there any chance that you retained your outtakes and can tell me what the names are on the fourth panel, assuming there is one?

It has been assumed that the Mary A. Bryne who appears on the panel with Frank Bryne is a 16 year old girl but after communication with a descendant, who has the girl's diary and prayer book, the 16 year old was Agnes Concilia Byrnes, nick named Cella. She attended the theater with her aunt. That much is substantiated by the descendant's family records (who is now going to search the diary and notes taken in discussions with another of Cella's aunts, for clues to the name of that aunt). Frank Byrne had an unmarried sister (b. c.1866) named Mary Byrnes who I suspect will turn out to be the aunt who attended the theater with Cella -- the Mary Byrnes for whom the coroner issued a burial permit and who appeared on some victim lists as a 34 year old school teacher and who is probably the Mary A. Byrnes whose name appears on the stone with in the panel with Frank, her brother. I found evidence on Find A Grave that Cella's mother, Mary, is buried in Calvary so it's very, very likely that Cella is too, but I've examined the records of every Byrne and Brynes in Illinois and she's not there. She must be in the Byrnes plot with her father and grandparents. I'm hoping the inscription on that 4th panel will verify this.

RE: Catherine Duffy
This is the plot given to me by the Calvary office. Yesterday, they told me that there were six graves sold to John. P. Duffy in 1891. The graves in the plot were: Catherine Duffy buried 11/27/1919; Patrick J. Duffy buried 4/19/1920;; Catherine Duffy buried 10/22/1927 (this is the one I wanted a photo of); Elizabeth Duffy buried 4/30/1945; Patrick F. Duffy buried 5/17/1960 (husband of my Catherine Duffy) and Ellen Duffy buried 3/3/1891.

Somehow they are all related (Not sure how) and they are all buried in Section S, Lot 30, block 33. Even though 6 graves were purchased, there are a total of 8 people buried there (multiple people in a grave, I guess). Michael Duffy buried 7/24/1899 and Minnie Duffy buried 5/23/1893 are also buried at that same plot.

Catherine Duffy
I appreciate your time and effort but that is not the correct Catherine Duffy.

My Catherine Duffy died on Oct 22. 1927 and her husband Patrick died in 1960.

Can you remove this photo, please?

Catherine Thompson
Sr Blanche Thompson
Dear Suzanne D. Many thanks for putting in the time and effort to locate the grave/memorial stone for Sr Mary Blanche Thompson. I was shocked to see so many deaths in the same year. She was only 31 years old. How many of the others who died in that era were still quite young. They were pioneering days.
I have been tracing my great great grand parents in Ireland and Sr Mary Blanche was the granddaughter of Thomas and Catherine Thompson, from Newbridge, County Kildare Ireland. Her mother, Elizabeth died when she was young and at some point after 1866 her father, William Thompson moved to Chicago because in 1875 Mary was a student at St Xaviers, Chicago. In a letter from her superior she was described as a saintly little thing and how all the students and all who had the happiness to know her were edified by the angelic sweetness of her manner. She died of slow consumption.
I am happy that we are able to remember her and know about her even after all this time. Regards
Catherine Thompson
