You can get this information on Ancestry very easy sad to leave it with no birth or death records. Thanks Bonita Meyer Meier #84006290

We would like to ask for a correction on this Memorial. Frank's daughter Janice was not with Adela, but with his first wife Gladys Rupp, and they had a second daughter Nancy as well While married to Adela they did have a daughter Sandra Lee Graf Bodenheimer and she was their only child.

Thanks for your help.

John Hennessy
Jesse, do you have this article?

Dubuque Herald, August 4, 1900

Executors of Archbishop Hennessy
File Will and Statement in
St. Paul.
There has been much speculation as to the value of Archbishop Hennessy’s private estate and there, therefore, will be much interest in the authentic statement of that amount. Archbishop Hennessy’s private estate is valued at $1,400,000. This information comes from St. Paul and is obtained from a statement filed by the executors in court there. An Associated Press dispatch from St. Paul says:
St. Paul, Aug. 3.- The will of the late Archbishop John Hennessy of Dubuque, Iowa, has been filed for probate here by the executors, Roger Ryan and Clement Johannes, of Dubuque. The estate amounts to above $1,000,000, $400,000 of which is Minneapolis real estate and personal property, being situated in Iowa.

The Minnesota property is divided among nine relatives. The Iowa property is divided between relatives and sisterhoods of the church.

Re: step parents
Thank you for your suggestion. We do not have plans at this time to add anymore family linkage fields, but I'll certainly put the idea into the hopper.

Ella Cornelia (Ellie) Bissell

Your entry for Ella has Find A Grave#125908782 & there is one under E C Bissell #129443070 that I think is the same person. Can you take a look at the gravestone & see if it's the same? (the pic just shows the initials, the same as her brother & father's)
Thanks so much..

Preston Family Cemetery
Memorials #6924597, #6924596, etc. Another website (Geocaching.Com) says David H. Preston, son of Sylvester and Anna (West) Preston, is also buried in this cemetery with a small American flag next to the stone. If you're in the area and have a chance to verify that, another memorial could be added. David served in the 21st Infantry during the Civil War, was wounded at Vicksburg 05/22/1863 and died at Memphis 07/15/63 (or 07/16/63 - records differ). I would normally expect him to be buried in the Memphis National Cemetery but, in addition to the above reference, an inventory of his effects says they were "turned over to Annie Preston" indicating his mother, aware that he was wounded, may have gone south to be with him in the hospital and then taken him home for burial. It's also possible the stone in the cemetery is a cenotaph.

Bishop Smyth
Jesse, I found this article for Bishop Smyth and wasn't sure if you were interested in it. Cheryl

Dubuque Democratic Herald – Jan. 1, 1864
The Extent of the Building
Done in 2863
List of the New Buildings Erected

During the season Bishop Smyth has built an elegant residence on Bluff Street, between Second and Third, next door to the Cathedral, at a cost of $9,000. It was designed and built by John Keenan. It is of brick, three stories high, 50 feet front, and 45 feet depth. It was commenced in May and finished in December. The cut stone work was done by Doner & Schulte, the plastering by John Tierney, the painting by T. P. Walsh, the stone work by Joseph Ryder, and the smith work by D. P. Lenehan. The iron work was finished by Wood & Perot, the fence as it stands alone costing over $1,000. It so is far completed that the Bishop already occupies it for his residence, though we believe more work yet remains to be done in the upper stories.
