Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am respectfully asking that you do not contact me to add information on a memorial if it is my own family, i.e. McDermott, Shannon, Davis, Johnston and/or Marella. I'm aware of the spouses, I'm aware of the children, and I'm aware of how Findagrave works. Unlike a lot of people here, I am not retired, I work every day and do not have all the time in the world to work on my memorials. I will get to them, and I find so many people just continually telling me what to do it's getting irritating. I will get to it all promise, I don't need to have six people emailing me to add a spouse on my great grandfather when I'm perfectly aware of it. Thanks though, but please stop.

RE: Patrick McDermitt
Hi, in your memorial the 2 children listed are John & Brigid

In the obit it lists children as:
John, Bridget, Anna and Catharine, all of whom reside at home. And Sister Mary Vincent, a member of the order of Sisters of Charity.

That's part of the reason I think they are the same gent.

In the obit it says he was about 70 years of age and your memorial says he was 79.

The memorials differ on year he came to the states, but they both say he worked for the PRR and they were both married to a Mary.

I just wanted to send you this little bit I gleaned from both of the memorials I looked at. They could be the same or maybe just very very very similar people?? LOL

Have a great day!!

RE: Patrick McDermitt
I'm glad I could help.

Would you kindly add the obit into his bio so others might also be able to see it?


Have a great day!

If I find any other bits of info I will pass them along.

Patrick McDermitt
Hi, I see in your bio that you ask not to be contacted about family memorials, but I just noticed I ended up duplicating one of your family because the death date if incorrect.

Your memorial for Patrick
Memorial# 66212614

Memorial# 151890156

With so many worn stones or missing stones I have been going through the obituaries and papers or death certificates to find burials for St. John's and correct unknown names and dates.

But he is listed in the paper Altoona Tribune
on Aug 29, 1891
"Death of Patrick McDermitt"

Your death date says Jul. 16, 1895, so I thought it might be two different men as there is still yet another Patrick McDermitt also buried in St. John's.

But, looking again at the wife's name and some of the children it looks to be the same man.

I am only leaving up my memorial for this message so you can see the newspaper information. It also lists his wife's maiden name which you don't have yet and a list of more children surviving him.

I am also not sure which place in Ireland he hails from? The obit says He was born in county Roscommon, Ireland. Your memorial says Athboy
County Meath, Ireland. Sometimes obits are incorrect, but I leave that up to your discretion.

Let me know when you see this message and have had the time to look at the obit. Then I can delete it since it is a duplicate.

Thanks for your time and have a great day!!

Busy Busy Busy here too. I photographed all of St. John Cemetery a couple of months back, so I expect to make lots of folks happy with long-sought tombstone pics. Yours was the first one.

Also on tap for today - making crab apple jelly and applesauce. The apple trees of the county are hanging with fruit this year.

RE: Question
Never met the man, so I couldn't even offer an opinion.

Send it to me: and I'll forward it to the diocesan newspaper. With any luck it might match his pic in their files.

I will try to do better than wait until I see Carol Jean because that may not be for a long time. She still lives in Rockcastle Co., I will call her if she still has a listed #. Her husband is deceased and may not have a listed #. if not, I will be going to Mt. Vernon in a few days and I will go see her if she is home and give her your e-mail address. if she does not use a computer can I give her your phone #? Please do not send it here- e-mail it to me. And I always called Mrs. Purcell "Mrs. Mamie". Surprised me on Ancestry to learn her name was not "Mamie".

Yes. Ben's wife, Maud Adams was a daughter of Sarah Dorcas (Livesay) Adams who was my grand-mother's 1st cousin and they were very close. I may have told you Maud's mother "cousin Sarah" as we always called her, lived with my grand-mother for several years.
