RE: Patrick Bergin Headstone
Hi vabloom,

Yes I remember my first Bergin. It was a beautiful headstone. I am sorry I could not tell you if this second headstone is over grave 1 or grave 2. For that, I would have to bring some garden utensils to the cemetery and start digging, because this headstone has sunk at least 4 inches. If this second burial site for Bergin has 2 graves, there are two possibilities (left or righr) like I said. Which one? Only Calvary office knows because they have like a blueprint of each section, and they can indicate the exact location of each grave.

Please tell me how I can get in touch with Mary Ann Galpin Ford concerning the family of Alice Mabel Ford and her parents, Minnie Grayson Ford and John Scott Ford. Minnie Grayson Ford is a relative of mine.

Also I would like to know the names of the three women in the photo, possibly Alice and Gladys and Elizabeth Ford?

RE: Thomas, Margaret and Josephine Bergin
Vabloom, it was a pleasure, all the more because the Bergin's headstone exists (actually, there are two, while most of the graves I photograph have no headstone)and because it is a beautiful work of art. Thanks for your words.

I was wondering if you knew where Hannora's maiden name was obtained from? I've been doing some searching but cannot seem to find anything.

Thanks for your help,

RE: Thomas, Margaret and Josephine Bergin
Oh, please don't miss Timothy because I also visited and photographed his resting place and headsote! I learned about it from the "hidden" note you wrote for Thomas' family. And, by the way, I found that you also created separate records for Margaret (wife) and Joshephine (daughter) so I copied some of the pics for their memorials. And just a final note: You wrote that Josephine was born and died in 1901 but the year carved on the headstone for Josephine is 1910. If the headstone is correct, it will be very easy for you to edit your data.

RE: Thomas, Margaret and Josephine Bergin
Hi. It happens that I was still writing the captions while you wrote me your beautiful message. May I suggest that you visit again the photos in case you lost any of my lastest notes? It was a pleasure, believe me. And this particular graves of your family have been the most rewarding of all because most of the times there are no headstones, which makes my work much harder by marking a few graves within the plot and range just to have an idea where the grave I am looking for is located. One additional pleasure was that the headstones are beautiful and in perfect shape. I am glad.

Graves for Thomas and Timothy
Hi vabloom:

I will try to find the graves for Thomas, wife and daughter, and for Timothy. I hope the graves have headstones because all my latest researchs have been very difficult because there was no headstone for any of them. As for Thomas, there might be an additional problem, which is that there is no grave number. Nonetheless, I will do my best.
