|Matthew J. Krol||John Cardinal Krol|
My uncle, John Joseph Cardinal Krol, did NOT "retire from the priesthood". No one "retires" from priesthood! As required by Church law, he submitted his retirement from his office to the Vatican upon his 75th birthday, but John Paul II did not accept it until almost three years later. He retired as Archbishop of Philadelphia in 1988, after 27 years in that position. He then served as Chairman of the Papal Commission on the Vatican Bank for 2-3 years (operating from both Rome and Philadelphia), charged with shoring up Vatican finances weakened by an earlier financial scandal - as well as instituting procedures and safeguards that would make another such financial situation unlikely. He remained in Philadelphia until his peaceful death, dying at the Cardinal's Residence with his successor at his side.

Memorial has Mr. Edison's date of death Oct. 18, 1931. You have a photo contribution and narrative saying he visited his home in 1932. Just thought you might want to revisit this. Thank you for your contribution.
Well, Guess What? HA! Julia Dent Grant was both his mother and daughter!! HA! No wonder!
Please accept my apology on this memorial.

I show Julia Dent Grant, born April 15, 1885 as Ulysses S Grant Jr's daughter, not mother...???
What do you think? Did I read it wrong?
|Jeannieology||Find A Grave Memorial# 6336018 Grant|
I have a question with regard to Grant Jr.
Famous son of Ulysses Grant(President)
I have information that states Ulysses Grant Jr's mother was Fannie Josephine Chaffee, of Michigan. (Daughter of Senator Jerome B Chaffee)
What do you think?
Please let me know. Perhaps we need to update his memorial, or I need to see about making an addendum....???
Can you work with me on this?

Should say June 16,1885. Not 1884
