Re: Rev Bernard McQuaid #23751430
Hi Kevin,
I just fulfilled some findagrave requests for the other 3 Bishops in the Bishops Crypt in Holy Sepulchre in Rochester Ny. I also took pictures of Rev McQuaid. I would be happy to add to his memorial, but, find a grave only allows 5 other pics in addition to the Cemetery picture, so his memorial is maxed out unless you remove at least one of the current pictures.
If you would like to remove a picture so that I may add it, please let me know and I would be happy to do so.

RE: Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
OK, then, maybe you can family link his parents:
His father is Patrick Conaty 81613427
His mother is Alice Lynch Conaty 81614273

If you want, here is what you can add to his bio.
Mar 30, 1882 in Worcester, MA. Thomas Conaty applied for a US Passport. He was 5' 11" tall with blue eyes and grayish hair.

Nellie Fleming (servant) Aug 1882 Ireland
Patrick Conaty (father) Apr 1823 Ireland
Catherine Conaty (sister)Aug 1861 Massachusetts
According to this census record, he immigrated in 1850 and was naturalized

1910 census Burlington Avenue, Los Angeles, California:
Thomas J. Conaty 62 Ireland Bishop of church
Francis Conaty (nephew) 30 Mass Rev of church
Susanne Lynch (cousin) 45 Connecticut
Anna McDermott (cousin) 22 Massachusetts

From Whos Who on the Pacific Coast 1913:
Thomas James Conaty was born in Kilnaleck, County Cavan, Ireland; brought to America when 3; educated in the public schools of Taunton, MA, Montreal College, Canada; A. B. Holy Cross College, Worcester 1869. He was ordained at Grand Seminary Montreal Dec 21, 1872; D. D. Georgetown University 1889; J. C. D.

From the Sep 18, 1915 edition of the Evening Tribune:
The Right Rev. Thomas J. Conaty died at his cottage at 1110 Lomas Avenue in Coronado. At his bedside were his sister Miss Catherine Conaty and his cousin Miss S. E. Lynch. The Bishop's relatives were notified by wire; the Rev. Bernard S. Conaty of Pittsfield, Mass and Joseph Conaty employed in the US immigration services

I am, and will continue to add biographies to all of my posts in the three Taunton Catholic Cemeteries.
If I find more on his family or Rev Tom, I'll keep you posted

RE: Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
If you don't have any objections, Ithink it would be easier to transfer the management. Then I can link him to his parents and siblings.

If you click on his memorial, on the top right, you will see a "Transfer managent" link. Instructions will follow

If you would rather keep the management, I'll send you his biography, and picture of his memorial grave in Taunton and links to his parents.

Bishop Thomas J. Conaty
I have a memorial grave in Old St. Francis Cemetery, Taunton, MA and a large writeup on Bishop Conaty plus links to family members. (Patrick and Alice (Lynch) Conaty.

I can send the info or you can transfer the management of his memorial to me.

Either way is fine
