RE: Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
OK, then, maybe you can family link his parents:
His father is Patrick Conaty 81613427

If you want, here is what you can add to his bio.

From Whos Who on the Pacific Coast 1913:
Thomas James Conaty was born in Kilnaleck, County Cavan, Ireland; brought to America when 3; educated in the public schools of Taunton, MA, Montreal College, Canada; A. B.

The Right Rev. Thomas J. Conaty died at his cottage at 1110 Lomas Avenue in Coronado. At his bedside were his sister Miss Catherine Conaty and his cousin Miss S. E. Lynch. The Bishop's relatives were notified by wire; the Rev. Bernard S. Conaty of Pittsfield, Mass and Joseph Conaty employed in the US immigration services

I am, and will continue to add biographies to all of my posts in the three Taunton Catholic Cemeteries.
If I find more on his family or Rev Tom, I'll keep you posted

RE: Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
If you don't have any objections, Ithink it would be easier to transfer the management. Then I can link him to his parents and siblings.

If you click on his memorial, on the top right, you will see a "Transfer managent" link. Instructions will follow

If you would rather keep the management, I'll send you his biography, and picture of his memorial grave in Taunton and links to his parents.

Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
I have a memorial grave in Old St. Francis Cemetery, Taunton, MA and a large writeup on Bishop Conaty plus links to family members. (Patrick and Alice (Lynch) Conaty.

I can send the info or you can transfer the management of his memorial to me.

Either way is fine

RE: photos
Yes, I would like a photo of the grave. I heard about all the snow you guys got up there lately. Guess it'll have to wait until the thaw. Thanks for doing this!

Thank you so much for all the information you sent my way. Your searching was above and beyond what anyone could imagine that a person would do for someone they don't know.
