|Bio and Links|
My name is Terrie and I live in Greene County, Ohio with my husband Jack in a small quiet little community.|
Together, we enjoy the outdoors and our grandchildren. However, I am all by myself when spending time in the cemeteries!
I have always been very interested in the history of my family and I began my research in 1999. Little did I know what I was in for! A much bigger task than I ever could have imagined.
Over time, I have begun to research my family part of the time and, in an effort to help those who do not live in the area find their loved ones, I try to post as much information as I can about others from my local area the rest of the time. I research as thoroughly as possible however, if you do find any errors with anything that I've posted, please notify me and I'll be happy to make the correction. I am also happy to transfer memorials to family members. Please feel free to use any photos that I have taken. They are not copyrighted and are posted for anyone who would like to use them.
Anyway, I hope that I am able to help in some small way.

I have sent you some updates and links via the edits tab on Find A Grave on the Hallers in St Bridget Cem Xenia

I left some edits for you on Alice, Gertrude, and Margaret Walsh. They were the children of Maurice or Morris Walsh and Ella Breen Walsh. The mother Ella burned up in a house fire Easter morning in 1908. The children were raised by their Aunt in Springfield, Ohio. The young one's never married in life and are all buried with one headstone and I have linked them to their parents and sent them to you. Thanks. I found an obit on Morris and wrote it out under his name on find a grave.

|Ed||RE: Patrick and Mary O'Neil Breen Memorial Transfers|
My feelings were that these people left everything in Ireland and came over here in the 1850's lived in Xenia, helped with the underground railroad and basically died in poverty and were buried at St. Bridget. Their children went into the hotel business in Dayton and did very well and their grandson was elected to Congress. So I felt my generation owed them a marker. If not for them as my father said I would be growing up in Ireland and not here. So my generation owed them a lot. It was both exciting and sad to go back to Ireland. In St. Mary's church it was a happy time to see where they were baptized, married and buried. At the same time to seal small tiles on the floor, hundreds of them with the seal of the Earl of Kenmare made me very angy. Knowing some of my relatives may have laid those tiles in place to commemorate a man hated by most Irish. The Kenmares ruled southern Ireland for over three hundred years and were brutal to the Irish that had to work for them and they will never be forgotten even in my generation or my children's generation. So it was like I said both exciting and sad all at the same time.
