Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am respectfully asking that you do not contact me to add information on a memorial if it is my own family, i.e. McDermott, Shannon, Davis, Johnston and/or Marella. I'm aware of the spouses, I'm aware of the children, and I'm aware of how Findagrave works. Unlike a lot of people here, I am not retired, I work every day and do not have all the time in the world to work on my memorials. I will get to them, and I find so many people just continually telling me what to do it's getting irritating. I will get to it all promise, I don't need to have six people emailing me to add a spouse on my great grandfather when I'm perfectly aware of it. Thanks though, but please stop.

RE: Thank you for the photo of Millie Longacre
I don't see links to her parents on Millie's page. Could you share their names and locations with me? & I'll add the links to Millie's page

Thank you so much for sponsoring "Father Frank's" memorial.
As a young altar boy, I had the privilege of serving Mass for him on many occasions. He always fussed over his young (Third) cousin and made me feel very special. He left us way too soon.
Do you have any good photos of him to post? My photos of him are of very poor quality.
Thanks again, Dave McNelis

RE: Your

Sorry to have bothered you. I've decided I should take this question directly to the folks at find-a-grave.

Thanks for your time, and thanks for your work on find-a-grave!

Take care.

Your "Unknown" Surname Memorials
Hi, Maureen,

I hope you are doing well.

I noticed that you have several memorials with "Unknown" in the surname field. I was wondering if that was your choice, or if another find-a-grave member sent you edits to change blank surname fields to "Unknown."

RE: Patrick McDermitt
Hi, in your memorial the 2 children listed are John & Brigid

In the obit it lists children as:
John, Bridget, Anna and Catharine, all of whom reside at home. And Sister Mary Vincent, a member of the order of Sisters of Charity.

That's part of the reason I think they are the same gent.

In the obit it says he was about 70 years of age and your memorial says he was 79.

The memorials differ on year he came to the states, but they both say he worked for the PRR and they were both married to a Mary.

I just wanted to send you this little bit I gleaned from both of the memorials I looked at. They could be the same or maybe just very very very similar people?? LOL

Have a great day!!

RE: Patrick McDermitt
I'm glad I could help.

Would you kindly add the obit into his bio so others might also be able to see it?


Have a great day!

If I find any other bits of info I will pass them along.

Patrick McDermitt
Hi, I see in your bio that you ask not to be contacted about family memorials, but I just noticed I ended up duplicating one of your family because the death date if incorrect.

Your memorial for Patrick
Memorial# 66212614

Memorial# 151890156

With so many worn stones or missing stones I have been going through the obituaries and papers or death certificates to find burials for St. John's and correct unknown names and dates.

But he is listed in the paper Altoona Tribune
on Aug 29, 1891
"Death of Patrick McDermitt"

Your death date says Jul. 16, 1895, so I thought it might be two different men as there is still yet another Patrick McDermitt also buried in St. John's.

But, looking again at the wife's name and some of the children it looks to be the same man.

I am only leaving up my memorial for this message so you can see the newspaper information. It also lists his wife's maiden name which you don't have yet and a list of more children surviving him.

I am also not sure which place in Ireland he hails from? The obit says He was born in county Roscommon, Ireland. Your memorial says Athboy
County Meath, Ireland. Sometimes obits are incorrect, but I leave that up to your discretion.

Let me know when you see this message and have had the time to look at the obit. Then I can delete it since it is a duplicate.

Thanks for your time and have a great day!!
