YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL WHERE A BEAUTIFUL SOUL HAS BEEN BY THE TEARS AND THE SMILES LEFT BEHIND

My Lanigan ancestors came to America during the Great Potato Famine of Ireland. Their first child Sarah was born in New York in 1847. Her father John Lanigan and her uncle James Lanigan helped to build the first railroad into Fairfield, Iowa. (name spelled Larrigan in 1860 census) Both signed up for the Civil War in Jefferson County Iowa at Lockridge, Iowa. Both were Catholic. They both settled in Ottumwa, Iowa and that is when my grandpa James Aloysious Lanigan was born in 1860.He married Anna Phillips at the old St. Patricks church at Ottumwa on the South side.

Hi,
EG's my great great grandfather through his son Homer Leslie White. I'm interested in the story of his and Naomi's kids getting farmed out after her and his mother's deaths. This isn't a story I know from the White blue book or my grampa although it seems logical.I know from the civil war records that they granted him leave to return to Iowa for a short time around then. Do you know if Naomi had kinfolk in the area and also do you know where Susan Hartzel is buried? One of Homer Leslie's grandchildren is still alive and she & I are always looking for more family info.
Thanks,
Christine White

Can you tell me if the cemetery records show his death date 18 October 1852. Checked his probate record and it was dated 3 November 1851, does the marker have this death date?

Thanks,
Paula Stout

I swear I found photos and other info on this site from someone other than you earlier and now I can't. Photos of his gravestone and all. He's in Iowa, that's all I remember. Will let you know if I come across it again

In re: Mary 'Catherine' Mefford: FAG# 11686383
Dear Ms Lanigan:

My profound thanks for the transfer. As I continue to research Catherine and her kin I may have to reach out to you again for guidance, or opinion.

In re: Mary 'Catherine' Mefford: FAG# 11686383

Dear Ms Lanigan:

First, I'd like to thank you for the most thoughtful memorial you created for my aunt, Mary 'Catherine' Mefford. However, I would be remiss were I not to recognize and credit the significant body of history you have conserved, again my thanks.

Recently, I have sent an edit to correct the placement of her maiden name as Mefford, not Maring — her second married name.

As no stone marks her grave do you know if the Rominger Cemetery in Batavia maintains any burial records which might identify the plot where she rests?

Would you be amenable to a request to transfer her memorial to my care? Regardless of your decision, I will continue to add any additional data I discover.

Éirinn go Brách,
George
