Bio and Links
Bio Photo Of primary interest to me are the grave locations and memorials of the descendants of my great grandfather Dennis O’Brien who landed in New York from Graiguenamanagh, County Kilkenny in Ireland on 27 April 1851. He settled in the Williamsburg, Massachusetts area and died in 1887. Although he and my great grandmother also from Kilkenny are said to be buried in Northampton – most likely St. Mary’s Cemetery on Elm Street – no stones have been found (yet). Many of Dennis O’Brien's descendants can be found all over the country, but most in Massachusetts and in northern Ohio.

The extended Mayo-origin Durkin family is also of intense interest beginning with Martin (# 70295671) who came to Cleveland, Ohio in 1888.

Morrisseys in the St. Croix and Polk County areas of Wisconsin are also a keen object of my research. Patrick Uriah Morrissey first came to the area in the 1870's and left many descendants who are now buried in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

However, I love to add names and info to cemeteries whenever I come across good, reliable information and references, and am so pleased if it helps others to do so.

Anything I have up is free to be copied at will.

Thanks to all who have helped me these past few years!
