RE: Fife lot, Cath Mount Auburn
Thank You for the information! I hope you don't mind my sending alternate information.
The corrections I sent were from death and birth records.
Ann Fife; birth, 1859, V. 125, page 5. Death 1859, V. 131, page 64 Mass Vital Records 1841-1910.
Michael Fife death, 1855, V.95, page 65.
I have been to the cemetery and had a go at the records a while back. You have done a superb job with them and I appreciate all the work you have done with Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery. I have been going back through my Family Tree, adding some records and correcting some of the source records. I can send the other sources for corrected/alternate records I have sent if you think it would be helpful to others.

Thanks you again. The information and pictures are much appreciated.

RE: Driscoll lot at Catholic Mt. Auburn Cemetery
Hi Bill. Thanks for the information on the Driscoll's plot. Jane Quinn Barnes is my 2nd Great Grandmother. Her husband (Thomas Barnes) is buried nearby in a different plot (no marker - I visited last month). If it weren't for your information on find-a-grave, I would have never located either of them. I really appreciate it.

RE: William McCarron-I added a bio. Is he one of yours?
Dang, how sad and definitely one of those MccCarrons. Thanks for putting the bio on findagrave. Your attention to that cemetery is just wonderful.

That probably makes his father the James there 96499023 but no proof of any of those relationships.

RE: Mary Ann Hagarty 1840-1890 ?
Thanks for your prompt follow up. Your change suggestion sounds okay to me. I am sure at best this is confusing, what with so many names to deal with. Mary Ann had 7 brothers and sisters. 5 of them that I know of are buried in Mount Auburn . Two that are not buried there I am trying to track Helen Augusta Hagerty 1849-? and Adelina M Hagarty 1841_?. The different spelling of the surname is interesting..... Also sometimes a double t. Also my files on Sarah Ann Francis Palmer Lillis Hagerty is interesting, as I do not know where the Ann Francis came in. As she was born Sarah Palmer Lillis. The Ann Francis was added later somewhere along the way.
Thanks again for all your help.

Mary Ann Hagarty 1840-1890 ?
Hello Bill. Could you take a look at Find a grave file Number: 85293737 Mary Ann Hargarty 1839-1890 & Find a grave file Number: 94300998 Mary Ann Hargarty 1859-1890. I believe that they are the same person but with different birth years and different death month and day listed. I believe that her death records show that that she was 50 at the time of her death, and that she died on January 29, 1890. I do not know where the death date of February 8 1890 comes from, but, might be the burial date. The wonderful photos you show of the grave monument is the ssme for both file #'s, but no indication where the Feb date comes in. or the 1859 date comes in. You have done a wonderful job putting this stuff together and has helped our family a lot. Sarah Ann Francis Palmer Lillis Mary Ann's mother was a distant cousin. Dean.

Sarah Ann Francis Palmer Hagerty
Wow, what a work up. thanks for the support data. A bit more than I needed to cement down the Hagerty family related to Sarah Ann Palmer. But was good to confirm what data we had on file. Appreciate your efforts. Dean.

Thanks for all your work.
What you have done for the descendants of these folks is incredible. I could see the early deaths but to have the information of how they died told me a lot of about what life was like for these immigrants and confirmed my tuberculosis guess. I have yet to find the actual connection of these McCarrons to my great-grandmother but this snapshot in time is just immeasurably enlightening. Thanks!

RE: Collina grave at Catholic Mount Auburn
Bill, THANK YOU A MILLION for all of the wonderful information. I truly appreciate it. I do no see
James in the information. He was born ca. 1825 and died 20 January 1883, I assume he was buried there. Maybe you can answer a question for me. James and Michael had a brother Thomas Collins. He died 4 July 1900 in Boston at age 63. The abstracted death record says he was buried at "Arlington". From what I can tell that is aka Old Burial Ground??? Where would I write to obtain burial information? Thanks again for your kind and wonderful help.

regarding Madden/Sullivans at CMA Cemetery
The George Madden at Catholic Mount Auburn was not the one I was looking for after all (I found mine at St. Joseph Cemetery in Lynn). I do, however, have a suggestion: since that is a most confusing situation (to say the least) - why not post something similar to what you sent me so that others would know who is buried where? Also, it wouldn't hurt to transcribe what is on the headstone since a lot of it is hard (or impossible) to read. I do appreciate the time you took to put the information together, and I'm sure there is a connection between these two Madden families. Again, thanks for your prompt response. And a big thanks for being a findagrave volunteer - what you do benefits ALL of us!!

Regards, Patricia

RE: Also in the Quirk grave at Catholic Mount Auburn

Thank you for the additional information. It is fascinating and a bit confusing.

This is what I know about the Quirk/Murphy family:

Eleanor Murphy, daughter of John Murphy and Mary Devereux was baptised 23 January 1831 at St. John's, Newfoundland.

"Ellen" Murphy married Arthur Quirk on 21 February 1851 at St. John's, and their daughter Mary was baptised there on 24 June 1852.

Arthur Quirk, wife Mary, daughter Mary, mother-in-law Mary Murphy, and sister-in-law Joanna Murphy arrived in Boston on the Brig Magnet, 28 Sept. 1853.

Can I change Ellen Quirk's maiden name from Devereux to Murphy?

RE: Catholic Mount Auburn. There Fosters also in the lot
Thank you for all of your hard work and help, Bill . Very appreciated :) I'm hoping to eventually find the Dunsterville connections across the pond. I know they were in Boston by 1849, Prior to that St John's Newfoundland, and in the early 1800's Kilkenny Ireland. There might be a connection with the Dunstervilles who moved from England to India. Hoping to connect with other descendants that might know more.
