Go to Rose Cullen's entry in St. Mary's. I've linked Patrick to her.

William W. Cullen is buried in St. Matthew Cemetery in Montgomery County :
I've asked the owner to add the obit to the bio section and to link him to his parents. Now, the conflict comes into play that this William W. Cullen, was born 5 years after Rose's death??? Unless the stone AND the obit are wrong, there's a problem with the dates. But how many Patrick & Rose's can there be in Phoenixville?

William W. Cullen

William W. Cullen, 52, formerly of Phoenixville and lately of 1848 Butler Pike, Harmonville, Plymouth Township (Montgomery County), died yesterday at Hahnemann hospital, Philadelphia. He had been ill since the past January.

He was born in Phoenixville, the son of the late Patrick and Rose (Casey) Cullen and was married to the former Mary O'Neill. He and his family left here about 25 years ago. A machinist by trade, he worked for several years at the John Wood Manufacturing Company and for the past 12 years at the Midvale Steel Company, Philadelphia.

Survivors include his wife, four daughters, Annabelle, Rosemary, Marie and Clare, all at home, and two sons, Louis, with the U.S. Army, and Edward, with the U.S. Navy.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 16 East First Avenu, Conshohocken, at 9 a.m., with Solemn Requiem Mass in St. Matthew's Church at 10 a.m. Interment will be in St. Matthew's Cemetery.

I also gave the owner of William W. Cullen's entry your Find A Grave name and ID number, so hopefully you can compare notes – if she is family.

O'Hara – Cullen

Old St. Mary's Phoenixville, was the scene of a wedding yesterday morning at six o'clock, when Miss Kathryn R. Cullen, a charming belle of the North Ward, became the bride of M.J. O'Hara, a resident of Philadelphia.
The ceremony was performed by Rev. John J. Kane, the assistant rector at St. Mary's. The bride and her maid of honor, Miss Mary I. O'Neill, were attired in traveling gowns of brown. They carried bouquets of chrysanthemums. The best man was William Cullen, a brother of the bride.
This is the only thing I see on Kathryn. Since it appears she moved to Philadelphia, there are not more references to her in the Chester County papers that I can see.
This little blurb appears- it doesn't appear to be part of your line, but it may be what is confusing the Catharine vs Kathryn given names in your original note to me. The last name has two R's, but that could either be how it was legitimately spelled or the typesetter messed up.

O'Harra- In West Chester, on December 31, 1884, Catharine O'Harra, late of Phoenixville, aged 78 years
I've added this one to St. Mary's cemetery: Is this the California Connection? The spelling is Cullin in the obit. I'm not convinced he is in your line, but would rather include than not,

Thomas F. Cullin, 85, of Santa Monica, Calif., formerly of Phoenixville, died recently in Los Angeles County Hospital, Calif., where he was admitted June 25 as a result of a fall from a porch.

A son of the late John and Mary Henderson Cullin, he was born in Lancaster and moved to Phoenixville at an early age. Here he carried on his father's tailor business at the corner of Main and Bridge Streets.
Mr. Cullin moved to Coatesville in 1916 and in 1926, to West Chester, where he resided for several years. Following this, he moved to California, where he has lived ever since.
While in Phoenixville, he was active in Democratic affairs. He was also in firemen's affairs, being a charter member of the Firemen's Relief Association of Phoenixville. He also was a member of St. Ann's Church.
Survivors are a sister, Mrs. Amanda G. O'Neill, Philadelphia, and a nephew, Thomas, of Phoenixville.
The funeral will be held from the A.C. Bishop funeral home, 310 South Main Street, Tuesday at 9 a.m. with Low Requiem Mass at St. Ann's Church at 10. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery. There will be no viewing.

Thomas F. Cullen, who for the past eleven years has conducted a tailoring establishment in this city, had disposed of his business to a West Chester firm, and will return to his former home, Phoenixville.

I'll send more if I find anything else… hope some of this helps. I don't see an obit for James, but I'll check the Veteran's Affairs Office later.

There are two cullens in St. Mary of Assumption. I have to think James is in Rose's line as the tombstone is to the right of hers. Look at Rose's entry on the lower right for a partial of James- then look at James' stone.

My money says James is a son (or maybe grand son) of Rose. Died age 23, served in WW I.

ok, here's hoping they put an obit in a chester county, Pa paper. Phoenixville is very, very close to Montgomery county, and I have no access to that county's resources.

I'll go to the CCHS later this week, I think. The weather plays a factor- now it is bitter cold.

No web site. This one is good old fashioned paper lookups. Stay tuned and I'll see what I can find.

Are you local to the area? The Chester county Historical society may provide a lead. Let me know and if you're not, I'll take a peek.

I have nothing concrete as far as his birth place, but working on it. I have him getting married in 1791 in Rhode Island to Sybil Dyer.
