RE: P Haas - #129365412
No, I haven't had the chance to visit their grave sites yet. I live just outside Indianapolis, IN, in Mooresvile, IN. When my son was going to school in Mooresville, NC, I didn't know that they were both buried at the Abbey. The Abbot will be sending me photo copies of the biographies of both Fr. Hass and Fr. Rosswog. Abbot Placid was so ever helpful and kind.

RE: P Haas - #129365412
Hi again,

I just received the response from the Abbey on Fr. Bernard, and their response is as follows:

Dear Mr. Laughlin,
Thank you for you inquiry regarding you relative, Father Bernard. At the time of Father Bernard's death, the inscriptions on the tombstones were in Latin. The "P" before his name is for "Pater" = "Father". Likewise, the other Latin inscriptions before the dates are "nat." for "natus" (born), "prof." for "professus" (professed vows), "ord." for "ordinatus" (ordained), and "mort." for "mortuus" (died). I assume that you might also be related to Father Bernard Rosswog, who died in 1999 and who was, if I am not mistaken, a relative of Father Bernard Haas.
Abbot Placid

They are also correct about Fr. Bernard Rosswog, he is related also.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks for your reply. I have also contacted the Abbey to try to learn any information they have on Fr. Haas.

Regards,

Dave

Hi,

The first date on the tombstone is 12 June 1866 for date of birth. There is a second date of 11 July 1886, with a Pro... in front of it. The third date is 20 Nov 1889, with a word in front of it, and the final date, 29 Nov 1933, which is no doubt his date of death. I'm pretty sure the words on the tombstone are in latin. I pretty sure this is the son of John and Maria Ann Ulmann Haas. The stone is really hard to read with the lighing.

Regards,

Dave

RE: Religious Men @ Belmont Abbey
Thank you so much for the Belmont grave photos! Having the tombstone pictures there makes the memorial complete.

RE: Rev. Herman Grones
Happy to help. I have added Fr. Herman's photo, though the quality is not so good. You can decide if you want to keep it there or not. Most Belmont monks were teachers at the college, but some were missionaries serving at local parishes. Fr. Herman was apparently the latter, Pastor of St. James Church in Concord. Keep up the good work!
