I'm a genealogist and geneablogger who has been tracing my family since 2001. I understand how useful finding that tombstone can be (especially with a picture!). Please don't hesitate to request a cemetery photo from the Colorado Springs, CO area. Transcriptions are always great, but a picture gives you that firm piece of evidence and documenting the sources for your family tree is always so important!
Find A Grave Memorial# 147128135 Hi again, I was just researching this some more, I looked that the death certificate for the Neil Brown who died 30 October 1937 is not the same man as Neil Brown who was a married to Bridget Brown, the 1937 man was born in Ireland. I found our Neil Brown still alive in 1940 with his wife Bridget and his children, Nancy, Eugene, Paul, Joan, John and Charles. I can email you the death certificate and the census record. Looks like there is a mix up with 2 men named Neil Brown both marrying women name Bridget. Lisa Baker
Charles and Annie Gallagher Hello Ms. Cherie! I do not think I am related to Charles Gallagher. However, my 2x great-grandmother, Winifred Mulligan, buried in the St. Mary's Cemetery was a Gallagher. There may be a connection, but I have not done that much research on the Gallagher family. I do have a photo of her and my 2x great-grandfather, John Mulligan that I added to their memorials. The photo was taken about 1868.
Winifred's daughter, Rose, married my great-grandfather, Daniel Fair. My Fair family goes back to 1751, when my 5th great-grandfather immigrated to America from Germany. My 5th great-grandfather was a Valley Forge serving with General Washington 1778. My 4th great-grandfather also served in the Revolutionary War as did three of his brothers.
Since I have access to death certificates from 1906 to 1963, helping folks with biographical information is something that I like to share.
St. Mary's Cemetery Thank you for all of your outstanding work adding memorials for St. Mary's Cemetery.
My great-great parents, John and Winifred Mulligan are buried in St. Mary's Cemetery. Sadly, they do not have grave markers. I wanted to purchase grave markers for them, but I was told that the plot records were destroyed in a fire.
Change in info My name is Diane Kippenhan-Vollmer living in Campbellsport, Wisconsin. Wilmer Kippenhan was my 1st cousin. You have him listed as William M Kippenhan. He had a brother William Henry Kippenhan Jr. Wilmer died of influenza on 3 March 1919 in Kansas City Missouri while attending school. His mother traveled to Kansas City on the train and brought his body back to Wisconsin for burial.
