Thanks so much for letting me know about my duplicate! I hate them and always appreciate hearing about it if I've inadvertently done that. I didn't realize it was so easy for that to happen. I have deleted the one without links and obit.

Ooops! Now I see why you removed the "G" as it was actually her maiden name. Please accept my apology. Stephen

Your edit would have removed her middle initial "G" which is shown on the cremains urn and the State death record. Please be careful with these edits! Stephen

Changes You Made for James
Thank you, Charlene, for the SAC you made for James Houk #64009892. The story of the three brothers in the Civil War is always so compelling! I was so happy that you added that to your memorial. I hope now that I can get up there to the cemetery to take a photo.
With sincere best wishes, Miriam

James M. Houk -Neshannock U.P.Ch.Cemetery
Suggested Addition to Memorial #64009892 - James M. Houk.
He has two brothers which you might like to add to memorial page.
They are Isaac Houk, Memorial #8364665, and Reuben Houk, Memorial #108068244. All three brothers served in the Civil War. James in the 100th PA Vols.; Isaac and Reuben both in the 14th PA Cavalry. All three soldiers were the sons of William Houk and Mary E. White Houk of Slippery Rock Twp. Lawrence Co., as seen in the 1850 Fed Census for South Slippery Rock Twp. Lawrence Co. Pennsylvania.
Thank you for this consideration.

RE: St Bernard's Cemetery
Hi, no there were no dates on that side of the monument, it looked like more of a memorial. I took pictures of it for you. I will send it to you so feel free to post them on the site. I will be going back to St Bernards and will see if there are any more Fitzgerald's. I will let you know.

Fitzgerald stone
I posted James and Catherine's headstone. On the other side of the stone was James who died in Ireland and his wife Bridget who died in East Hartford, CT. Under that it says Patrick Casey and Mary his wife who died in Ireland. Underneath it says Requiescant in Pace

Bonynge's in Prosperous and Clane

Speaking with local historian Seamus Cullen, he mentioned another connection with the Bonynge family.

The official name for Healy's Bridge between Prosperous and Robertstown is Bonynge Bridge.

Mr Bonynge lived in the original Downings House and was associated with the Grand Canal project. His widow Mrs Bonynge lived in Downings house, During the rebellion in 1798 an agent was piked by the rebels in the house, Mrs Bonynge with her children fled the house which was burned. She got compensation rebuilt the house and re-married a man named Bury. One of the Bury's married a Weld. Many gentry families that lived in the Prosperous area before Prosperous was built went to church in Clane such as the Bonynge family and the Digby family.

There is another graveyard near the one mentioned in your request. It fell into disrepair until restored as part of a wider building programme in the 1980's. Animals had damaged many of the gravestone - most were overturned. To increase the chances for the future, the gravestones were moved to the surrounding wall for support.

The gravestone mentioned in the linked map: reads:

To the memory of Louisa Selina,
dearly beloved wife of
Thomas Bonynge
who departed this life 22nd March 1778.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
Also the above Thomas Bonynge who died 27th April 1892 aged 85.
Also Isabella Bonynge, their daughter
who died May 6th 1906 aged 62 years.

I'll get you a photo of the gravestone, perhaps next weekend.
