walnut grove Cemetery
the plaque at the cemetery states that it is East Church Cemetery. Is there a reason that you are calling it Walnut Grove? I leave on Church St. and was interested in taking some pictures...

Re: Photo request for Benjamin Rolla 1842
Attached is a copy of the problem report I submitted on this photo request:

According to the Mt Hope Interment Records (, Benjamin Rolla died in 1842 at the of age 36 of dropsy and was buried in St Patrick's Cemetery.

This site gives a detailed explanation: but the gist of it is that in the mid-1800s, the Mt Hope Interment Records were used to record all burials in the city of Rochester, including those at other cemeteries. St Patrick's Cemetery is a now-defunct cemetery, with most of the remains having supposedly been moved to Holy Sepulchre Cemetery where there is a general memorial for all of the removals from St. Patrick's. (You can see a picture of that on Memorial #31976547 for Bridget Agan and could ask Judy Williams, the volunteer who posted it, to do the same for Benjamin Rolla if you want.)

RE: John & Elizabeth O'Shaunghnessy
I rather doubt your O'Shaughnessy family is related to mine, but... who knows. Garrett married my great great grandmother Catherine (Smith) Forrester, after her first husband, my gggf, William Forrester died. William died in 1851, either just before or just after my great grandmother was born. The Forresters were from Dublin, Ireland. Sometime after William died, my gggm married Garrett O'Shaughnessy. They had a daughter Mary. Garrett was a member of the IRB (forerunner of the IRA). Due to some troubles Garrett got into because of that, they fled Ireland, and came here. They lived in NYC, where Garrett worked as an Iron Moulderer. I don't know any of the details of his death, other than, on Sept. 30, 1898, he supposedly committed suicide, by swalling carbolic acid! As my gg grandmother died only 10 years later, nobody in the family ever really talked about thime, so, I have no idea if he had any brothers who came over, or any other relatives. His and my gg grandmother's daughter Mary first married a man named Armstrong (can't remember his first name at the moment), then after he passed, she married George C. Miller, and they lived in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. There are some descendants living yet, however, they know nothing further about the family either. If you find out that our O'Shaughnessys are related, please do let me know! Thanks, and YW for the transfer!
