Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an American ex-pat living in Kilmainham (Dublin) Ireland since June 2000. If I have it in my notes, I am happy to provide additonal information including census and newspaper obituaries, and/or location of burial sites in Dublin, Ireland: Arbour Hill, Bluebell, Palmerstown - Mill Lane, and Palmerstown - Oldtown Cemeteries. Also, I can provide additional information on many of the burials in Judy Cemetery, Garnett, Kansas, USA; and West Oxford United Methodist Church Cemetey in Oxford Co., Ontario, Canada, and various locations in northern Kentucky.

I have extensive information on the Bridgewater surname and variants, namely Bridgewaters, Bridgwater, and Bridgwaters, worldwide but predominately in the States. This includes online access to "Vern Paul's Bridgewater Register" that serves as an index to my files; and a database of "Bridgewater Marriages".

I also compiled "Death Records of Scioto County, Ohio, 1803-1860" that has since been swallowed up on the Internet. If anyone locates a copy, I would appreciated knowing where.

I have a particular interest in, and am working on, "Kissick Families of Kentucky: Descendants of Henry McKissick and Mary McCay" which current draft is well over 600 pages. Kissicks, let me hear from you. Start with my grandfather's memorial: Alvin Henry Kissick

Request transfer of grave
I was so happy to see my grandmother's grave and information on here. Could you please transfer to me Memorial # 136609978, Amelia J. Kearney buried at St. Joseph's in Pittsfield, Mass. My father, Richard M. Bruner was her only child. Many years after her death, at the age of 88, we took a trip back to his hometown of Pittsfield, so he could 'mark her grave', and leave a bouquet of her favorite flowers, 'pink posies'. He could not afford to do this when she passed, but he never quit loving her, and this was one of his lifelong missions.

Thank you so much,

Virginia L. Hoover

Dublin family records or ?
Dear Mr. Paul, I would like to get in touch with you about any information that might be found about my great-grandfather George Franklin-born abt 1839 in Beggars Bush Road Barracks (according to family stories_. He and his siblings, along with their parents, lived in the Barracks in the 1840's before emigrating in 1848 to Canada and then on to USA.

Please reach me at with any cost involved and what you might be able to find. (birth & marriage records, parents for my greatX2 grandfather Joseph Franklin, etc)

Thanks, Deena Marie Herod

Thank you for posting this wonderful bio! While I research ALL cemeteries in Josephine County, Granite Hill is my favorite (and where I will be). I hate having blanks in my database, and this very nicely filled one! Sure wish ALL of the Courier was available online.

Do u have any further information re cause of death or address where he was living or name of wife. Any information may tie up and confirm that this is my late father in laws fathers grace. We have looked for years and no one knew where he was buried.
Many thanks in advance

RE: mary galvin /james kenny etc
wow you are fast, I sadly at this stage have no info on names I would probably have to try and get baptismal certs or death certs (I'm presuming at birth) to confirm and tie in all. Thanks again, I will stay in contact as I hope you will too. Many in Palmerstown will still remember me, I hope.

Regards again,

John (SEAN) Kenny
