Richard Geraghty and family.
Good Evening to you. I visited Glasnevin cemetery today and took photographs of the Geraghty grave.I cannot download the photographs as you have more that 5 pic on this memorial. You will need to sponsor this memorial, or remove some of the pics so i can download the photographs, or i can forward you the pics to your email.

kind regards

RE: Anna Chirdon
It came as great news to the son of the deceased, who is retired USN, that his Mom's direct ancestor Francis fought for Napoleon. I showed him the medical discharge certificate that Ellis Michaels posted on Findagrave on Francis' memorial page. I think he was impressed. (Thank goodness for the scads of I-phones in circulation!)

RE: Anna Chirdon
I know you connect via George and Marie Lillian to Eileen Kochara. Do I understand correctly that your Mom Margaret was the oldest of that family?

All Chirdons I ever met were good folks, by the way!

RE: Timothy D. Murphy
Thanks for your quick response. If your family had been related to "Big Tim" Murphy, I'm certain you would have known about it. Considering he started the Irish Mafia in Chicago.- Once again, THANKS for replying. R. Novak

Timothy D. Murphy
Hi, since you are researching MURPHY, do you know if any of the other MURPHYs in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery were related to Timothy D. Murphy?

I have not been back to St Andrews (my father had suffered another mini stroke) however I was going through some of my photos from earlier this month, are you missing any other Demers? I photographed a Raymond Demers Sr 1919-1991 and Katherine Demers 1924-2005. It was a shared stone that also read Married Sept 14, 1946. Please disregard if you are not interested but didn't want to miss the opportunity to alert you to another Demers.

You are welcome. I see you have been waiting a couple of year to see his marker. I was surprised to find it right away. Yes, I will search again for your other family members. I looked quickly the other day but had my elderly father with me so it was a quick stop. He is recouping from some health issues. Looking forward to helping you in the future.

Hi George & Eileen, I was in Detroit today and I went back to Elmwood to check the Agnes Marshall stone. A new photo is posted on her memorial. Notice the date that she was born (June 18, 1850) is different than what is on her Find A Grave memorial. The stone appears to have been broken at the bottom and it was reset into the dirt covering up the dates. We dug the front of the stone out and what do you know. Dates appeared. I photographed it and replaced the dirt.

RE: Can You Help Identify An Old, Bronze Flag Holder ?
Hi George,
You can find the discussion forums here. You have to make a separate forum account if you want to post, but if you just want to read I don't think you have to. I've been posting there for 10 years, mostly in the cemetery corrections forum.
I wish we had G.A.R. cemeteries here! No specific requests, but should you ever run across a memorial for a Vermont or Rhode Island veteran, I can always add them to my virtual cemeteries :)

RE: Can You Help Identify An Old, Bronze Flag Holder ?
Hi George & Eileen,
You are very welcome for the Tuite transfers and the possible lead :)
About the flagholder you asked about...I've seen A LOT of flagholders, but I've never seen that one. It looks old and made out of iron, I see iron flagholders a lot on Civil War graves. But that flagholder almost looks sort of generic to me. I don't see any specific details on it that might tie it to a particular veterans organization. I don't know if any of the gentlemen buried in that plot are veterans or not. Sometimes they find their way onto graves by accident.
I asked on the forum to see if anyone might have an idea, more people may or may not chime in. I think it's too old to be WWI, but that's just my opinion.
