|Eileen Hall||RE: Kinney Family|
Thanks for your quick reply. I have searched the Altoona Mirror microfilms & another old Blair County newspaper at the Geneology Society. No luck. Those little patch towns that they lived in are hard to find information on. There was also a place named Delaney (which is my paternal Grandmother's side of the family). I am going to try a trip to Cambria County Geneology Society. The old Ebensburg newspaper seem to have lots of information, plus there is a James McKinney buried in the Potter's field of Cambria County. My list of people who aren't my great grandfather is very long. There was even a James M'Kinney who lived in Coupon around the same time period.
I have another question - Are there people who are buried in the Catholic cemeteries who don't have grave markers? If so, are there records of any kind?
Thanks again for your help,

|Eileen Hall||Kinney Family|
I was given your name by Father Sean Code as a possible person who could help me find an elusive ancestor. I have been looking for my great grandfather, James Augustine Kinney (or McKinney) who lived in the Coupon area probably in the late 1800's. I know that the church in Coupon burned, but thought somewhere there might be old records. He was married to Mary Ellen Farren Montgomery probably sometime between 1875 and 1882. There were 5 children birthdates ranging from 1882 to 1891. I found a coroner's record stating that a James Kinney was found dead in Baker's Mines, Blair County on 5/21/1891. I can't verify that this was my great grandfather, but my great grandmother was listed as a widow in 1900 census. I can't find a record of her death. There are two of their sons buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Harry & James W Kinney. Harry was my grandfather.
If you could give me any idea where I might find old records on my ancestors, I would be very happy.

I received a brief summary for Sister Evangelista from Sister Mary. It has where she was born and date of death and what she did at the places she was. Everything matches with some of the data I already have. The Sister has a photo of her and I requested a copy.
Thank you for your help.

The only thing I could find, she was Sister Mary Evangelista, Sister of Charity in Cleveland, Ohio in 1949. Her Birth and death dates: 25 Jan 1892 / 30 Jan 1965 and at one time before this, she was at Saint Mary's Church in Elyria, Ohio.

There is Saint Joseph's Cemetery in Cuyahoga County, Cleveland , Ohio. It is owned by the Catholic Cemetery Assoc. under the diocese of Cleveland. From what I can see on the cemetery map, there are alot of single graves.
Added by Ron on Nov 30, 2011 3:38 PM
I was wondering, can you help me find the last resting place for Sister Evangelist Bodenschatz of Cleveland, Ohio? Her birth name was Agnes Bodenschatz, born in 1892 and passed in 1965.

I am trying to get some information on the listing you have for James T Parks Memorial# 14814405. The photo shows him married to Catherine Parks. I'm a bit confused since the information does not match with what I know of the family. Can you contact me and help me clear this up? I'm pretty sure this is from the family plot but would need some more info to confirm. Thanks so much.
