Bio Photo While posting my family tree, I've also set up some memorials for people who aren't in my family. If you find a relative among them and want a transfer, please let me know. I think family members usually do the best job of tending to the memorials.

I'm in Washington state.

RE: Patrick Rohan
I will see if I can find an obituary for you. I'm not sure if I can do it this week as we have company until Friday. I have several things I need to do at the Butte Archives so I will add this to the list. If I don't get it this week, I definitely need to go to the Archives next week.

About the way the cemetery is numbered. In about 1980-1982 the local organization of the DAR ladies (Daughters of the American Revolution) walked the cemeteries in Butte and transcribed the headstones that were there. For St. Pat's, they didn't have a map of the cemetery, so they sketched out their own map and lettered the blocks and numbered the rows. The cemetery did have a map and I'm not sure if they realized that or not when they created their own. The cemetery is broken down into numbered Blocks and lots within the blocks, and graves within the lots. I hope that makes sense. The DAR locations aren't wrong exactly, but they are very difficult to determine where the gravesites are within their lettered blocks. According to cemeteries records, they are not recognized by their system. I think the DAR sent the files to Rootsweb and that's how they got published. Not sure tho.

Because I volunteer for the Butte Archives, I was one of the volunteers who took it upon ourselves to "borrow" the cemetery records and scan them. I scanned have saved a copy for my own use for the purpose of findagrave and other research I do. I've learned pretty good how to find my way around the cemeteries and can usually find the gravesites if they are marked. If they aren't marked, of course, it is difficult to say exactly where a grave is located at time.

I hope this makes sense to you. If you have any questions, let me know. I will get back to you as soon as I can, and in the meantime, if you think of anything else you can email me.

Patrick Rohan

In checking the cemetery records, I couldn't find a Patrick Rohan, however, I found a Pat M. Rowan who died March 10, 1913, aged 60. I believe this is probably your Patrick Rohan. (These old cemetery records aren't always correct and sometimes are hard to read.) I will check the cemetery location this week to see if he has a headstone. Just wanted to let you know that he may be listed under Rowan rather than Rohan.

Also, in a separate cemetery location I found Joseph Rohan listed. Frank (d. 1940), Delia (d.1909), Brandon (d. 1921) and Winifred Rohan(d. 1977) are buried in the same plot. I will take pictures of any headstones bearing the name Rohan while I am there. Hopefully they will all be marked graves.

There is a Joseph M. RoPar (Harper) listed. The RoPar is sort of strange I thought, a Charles O. Harper, and an Irene Murtha. They are all buried in the same plot with Rohans. Do any of these names sound familiar to you?

Hopefully I can make it there this week.

RE: George F. Stockton headstone
I've added a page for Francis (#132084961). He rests two plots to the left of George, but his grave is unmarked. Between Francis and George, the map lists "Ree Stockton" -- could this be Jennie? I will get additional info from Mt. Hope tomorrow. You can see in the "view shot" in the photos I added to George's memorial, there are no markers to the left. I will email you a photo of the map. And I'll add photos to Francis Stockton's page, then can I transfer management to you? And I can make a memorial for "Ree" once I figure out if she is Jennie or another Stockton.

RE: George F. Stockton headstone
Isn't his headstone great? And in such a nice location under the trees! I was saddened to read he drowned with others nearby. I am glad that we are able to remember him now, though.

You're quite welcome! .... and Catherine's photo has been uploaded, too.

RE: Lian headstone
It was obvious to me that this is a new marker as it was sitting on old concrete so somebody replaced it, maybe it only had one name on it originally.

RE: Joseph Bruen headstone
You're welcome! I tried searching for the other 4 Bruens you have requested for Hillside Cemetery, but was not able to find those specific names (there are a lot of Bruens there). Do you have any lot locations for them?

RE: Isaac Denny
Yes her husband is Isaac Denny. I found their 1850 Census in Perry County. Take a look at my ancestry tree again. I've done a lot of updating since you first emailed Me.

RE: Hiram Henry Lanning
I know there were at least 3 Hirams roughly the same age and several more. Let me recheck the records and place the marriage on the right memorial.

Yes, great aunt Cora was only a teenager and great grandpa McCloy's youngest son was born only a few years before Cora's baby so they took the baby in.

But there have been instances of very young marriages. Cora's gggrandmother may have married when she was only 12, 14 at most. We have 2 birthdates for her.
