For almost any photo I've added I've got a larger file size version available - please contact me if you need a copy of the bigger file.

If you're looking at a memorial I created for someone buried at St John's - please let me know corrections or feel free to ask for transfers of relatives (both via the edit tab please) - I'm working my way through the entire cemetery now, since it's relatively small, though I suspect it will still take a few years to get through the entire thing :)

RE: memorial# 85555330
I looked at the Catherine Hines you refer to and agree that she is of the age where it is reasonable to be Patrick's mom...she also could be an aunt...unfortunately her death record is not found and she seems to disappear from census records after 1865 alto there are women with that name in the vicinity later on.
Patrick's death certificate states his mother as Kitsey or Ketsey (Curick or Cusick) Hines. Perhaps "Kitsey" is a nickname for Catherine but without Catherine's death record or Patrick's birth record from Ireland I'm not sure how you can make a conclusive determination.
I double checked the Conway history and there is no mention of Catherine, it has Patrick's mother as Kitsey but it's likely the author was looking at the same death certificate.
I checked my resource for newspapers of that time looking for Catherine and Patrick but did not find them.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving, sorry I could not be more helpful.

Yes....if you email me
I will send you screen shots from the book

and I will help you.

I can also look at the library on Wed-Fri as I am off next week and dig a bit deeper.

Drop me a note and I will send you what is here in the book.

Any name you think...I will look for you.

RE: Pechulis photos
I believe the hours are Mon-Fri, 8-3pm. The gentleman that works there is often in & out working on the grounds or meeting with people.

RE: McGuinness/Delvin/Pechulis
I tend to get a little obsessive, and have to rein myself in and remember that, even if I DON'T manage to record an entire cemetery, every single memorial added is a plus! :-)

And it's always so nice to get a thank you from someone who has "found" an ancestor from an entry I've made - or learned more information from the grave marker I've photographed.

I hope you get a chance to get out this year. It would be worth it if only for the "getting some time in the outdoors, and watching the wildlife" aspect of it.

RE: McGuinness/Delvin/Pechulis
Oh yes - lots and lots of photos - and more all the time! :-)

This is something I always love to do, and now my husband has a "prescription" of 30 minutes walking (at any speed he'd like, including a stroll) each day. He likes walking the cemeteries - I like photographing them. So, usually, I spend the first half of his walk taking pictures, while he listens to music, then I join him for his second go-round. And it usually comes out to more like an hour, which is great for both of us!

I've completed Riverdale Cemetery, just up the road, and several very small local cemeteries, and have been working on St. Pat's and Pine Grove, off and on, for a few years now. This walking regimen is making it go much faster. :-)

RE: McGuinness/Delvin/Pechulis
Well, I don't know where Pechulis fits in - LOL! But I have taken hundreds of photos at St. Pat's this year (so far) that I won't be caught up posting for months. At least it gives me something to do here in the winter, when it's too cold for me to walk the rows. So it was easy enough to find that one.

I don't usually try to list all the children of a couple, but stumbled on the records of the four children of Michael and Ellen McGuinness that died in the diphtheria outbreak in 1878, and found that so sad. Given the period, I'm sure we'll never know where they are buried, unless some family records exist with that information. I can't imagine what it must be like to lost ALL of your children within a month (and the youngest not yet a year old)!

Let me know if you're looking for anyone else in St. Pat's. As I say, I still have a LOT of photos to tweak and upload. And we're still there several times a week, too.

Happy ancestor hunting! :-)

Bridget Madden @ STL Calvary
I am part of group that helps to fulfill photo requests for Calvary...
Well, I don't see Bridget in the burial records, so she is going to require a visit to the office to say Help. And I have tried some really odd searches! But her DC Does state she was buried here.

To make it even more interesting, there is also a Loretta Madden buried days before Bridget!

Michael in 5H- odds are not good that there is a headstone. Typically, those buried in that section did not have a much of money. And we have posted pictures of most of those in 5KHM & N. That does not mean we wont look, but ... sorry.
