Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Catholic priest in the Jesuit Order (Society of Jesus).
I began researching family history after my paternal grandfather's sister died in 1999 at age 95, and so much history was lost at her death. I am glad I began when I did because in the succeeding 10 years nearly her whole generation has now passed away.
So many people have helped me in my research, I am happy to help others.

Paternal families: Smith, Bushey, Keating, Donahy; Knox, Carter, Dennis, Godfry.
Maternal families: Miller, Stephens, Waite, Kritzer; Laird, Van Sickle, O'Dell, Brown.

Mary Ellen Keating Smith
Hello Rev. David Smith, S.J.:
Can you give the source of Mary Ellen Keeting's obituary and also her husbands source for his obituary and newspaper notice?
I would sure appreciate it
I'm doing some research on these, my distant cousins.
