|Bio and Links|
|My great grandparents, John and Bridget Moran Nangle left Ireland during the Great Famine. They lost their first-born child Anne to the famine fever.After first landing in Canada they moved their way across the border into Vermont where they had their first American-born child. The Nangle family shortly thereafter migrated to Allegany County,NY where they settled as farmers in Belfast during 1848 and had seven additional children. John, Bridget and a few of their Nangle children are at rest in St. Patrick's Holy Cross Cemetery. We own a home in Belfast where we spend the summer months.|
The information gathered about individuals entered is an ongoing project and for the most part has been gleaned from various sources; census records, newspaper microfilms of marriages and obituaries; very limited old church and sexton records etc., all of which are subject to human error and must be considered as secondary sources. We are continually reviewing entries and correcting any inadvertent errors discovered either on the part of erroneous published information or by the compilers in copying.
The grave locations we have given are approximate. There are no section or lot markers in the cemetery. There are two sets of rows. The first set(1to20)begins to the right of the front of St. Patrick's Church and runs to the nort end of the cemetery. Row 1 to 11 run from the front of the Church to the center walkway. 12 to 20 run from the center walkway to the east fence line.
The second set are the short rows that are to the rear and adjacent to the rear of the Church. They begin with 1 a and run to the rear of the cemetery.There are also graves located to the rear of the"cold shed"and they are indicated by the letters r.m.
The row number is the first number followed by the grave number. The grave number is very approximate. The best action that can be taken is to first find the row and follow it down to the approximate number and circle the srea looking at both sides of the headstones.
There is a new section(2005)to St. Patrick's Holy Cross Cemetery which is located to the north of the Town Cemetery called Riverside. Few recent graves are expected to be in this location for quite some time.
Do not hesitate to either contribute additional information about an individual listed or point out inadvertent errors noted. Please include your source.
