Bio and Links
I am a Roman Catholic priest currently serving as the pastor of the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Nashville, Tennessee. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, attended Notre Dame High School there, graduated from St. Meinrad Seminary College in St. Meinrad, IN, in 1977. I started graduate studies in Rome, Italy at the Gregorianum University and completed studies at the Catholic University of America. I received my Doctor of Ministry in Homiletics for the Aquinas Insititute of Theology on the Campus of St. Louis University in 2011. I have been "digging up relatives" since 1973.

Fitzgerald Family
If you happen to run across a Paulist priest or brother who is associated with this family, will you let me know? When my sister and I were young, my Dad took us downtown Chicago to hear the Paulist choir and to meet his cousin from Nashville who was a member. He may have been a Curran/Bailey. The Bailey kids last names are Ridge, Martin, Russel, Delvin, Curran, Gattis, and Hite. I believe they all went to Incarnation.

RE: # 137102602
I don't have any pictures of St. Joseph's. Like you, I have been searching for one for a very long time. I will let you know if I come across any and please do the same for me. To think something so historical and beautiful was razed for a freeway!
Thanks again for all your help with my Fitzgerald Family. I am still searching Ireland records for their first immigrant ancestor.
Did you happen to know my Aunt Annie, Sister Margaret Mary OSM?

Dear Father,
Thank you so much for posting the memorial for Joseph Nathaniel Fitzgerald, my first cousin though years apart. I had no idea he was in the service and am very please to know that. It is amazing what we don't know about our own generation. I am always so happy when I find some bit of family history that took place during my own lifetime. I see you are at Incarnation, very dear to my heart because of the family members who were associated with that Church. I, myself, was baptized at the old St. Joseph's.

RE: Breens
His name is James Walsh, and according to the book, Tennessee Tombstone Inscriptions and Manuscripts, he died July 24,1871, age 60. I'm trying to figure out if this might be my Great great GF. I have not found a death certificate, nor does his name appear in the database of burials on the Calvary website. A few years ago I asked at the office at Calvary. the couldn't find anything but suggested I walk the old area behind the office. I've done that several times but I haven't found him. The Tennessee Tombstone book, which I have, says that the Calvary Records were "compiled" by Elizabeth C. Breen in 1933 (which is ironic in and of itself and is another question I have - are those Breens related to mine? I feel Frs. Phillip and Joe Pat could answer that one). But compiled from what? What was she looking at that said James Walsh age 61 died (or was buried) on July 24, 1871? I don't know, but that's essentially what I'm trying to find. Are there any church records that show burials from that time period? Or any other records you know of? I've even checked the obits in the newspaper around that time. Are there any church records that show parishioners at that time? His age and death fits my theory of how the Walshes and Breens came to know each other. Any kind of corroborating information at all may help me.

RE: Breens
Thanks so much for responding! I talked to Fr. Phillip a few years ago after my mother died and ever since have intended to meet him in Nashville to talk family history. He and Fr. Joe Pat were first cousins to my mother, but I've never spent any time with them, and I would like to. Just One of those trips I haven't quite done yet. I may take you up on your offer to help and call you. There's one person I'm investigating that was buried in Calvary in 1871 according to a couple of sources. I've walked the area where he might be and cannot find it, and I'm wondering if there are any church records that might corroborate the information. Anyway, thanks again for responding and Merry Christmas. I look forward to talking to you sometime soon.

I see that you have also created entries for John Joseph McCormack #131617491 and Sara Jane Flaherty McCormack #131616451, buried at Calvary Cemetery in Memphis. These are my great grandparents and I would very much appreciate a transfer to me.
