Thank you for taking and posting the photos of my GG grandparents' headstones (Catholic Cemetery, Central City, CO).
John Flanagan b. 1830 - Ireland
Sarah Ellen McConnell Flanagan b. 1841 d. 1905 in Butte, Montana (body returned to Colorado to be buried with her husband)
Daughter Mary B. Flanagan b. 1870
I wondered if their headstones were near each other in the cemetery?
They were a mining family, son Frank and daughter Katherine (m. John C. Driscoll) brought their mother with them to the silver and copper mines of Butte in late 1880's.

|Stephen Johnson||Patrick McKibbin|
I found your Find A Grave info on Patrick McKibbin, his wife Margaret and their children at the Central City Cemetery. I just found out this past week that I have a family relationship to them. They are related to an uncle of mine here in Colorado. His mother was a McKibbin. She was the daughter of another Margaret, Patrick's wife Margaret.
There is one brother of LaVerne that is still alive. His name is Harry Werkmeister. He is 98 years old. Family legend has it that Patrick was born in Ireland around 1832. His parents were very poor and they turned him out the house at the age of 8. He got on a ship as a cabin boy. He would be a sailor for many years. He met up with a couple of fur traders at a Canadian port. They told him about Colorado. He set out to Colorado and became a fur trader. He would travel back and forth to Kansas City to sell his pelts. He met Horace and Augusta Tabor and escorted them back to Colorado. They shared a double cabin at 16th and Curtis in Downtown Denver. Horace and Augusta went to Leadville and became millionaires. Patrick went to Nevadaville near Central City. Margaret was a French lady of means and took a liking to Patrick with his red hair. They married and as you know are now buried at the Central City Cemetery.
I am meeting with Harry Werkmeister later this coming week. I hope to learn a lot more from him.

Thank you SO much for securing the photo the grave marker for Scely. She was my great great great grandmother. I live in AZ, and I don't get to MO very often.
You are MOST kind.

Tammy, I don't think all of the children had the middle initial "L." I think the "L" is meant to stand for the last name Lewis on each of their headstones. - William
|William Lohman||RE: Lewis Gravestones|
Tammy - Thank you very much for also including the headstones for each of the Lewis children. Death of children was so much more common then, especially in these mining camps in the winter in the age before good medicines! I'm not sure when and where Michael's wife Mary A Lewis died. I cannot find her after the 1920 census, when she was still in Central City. That she does not have a headstone there may indicate that she moved and did not die in Central City. So that is a clue for me to keep looking elsewhere. Thanks again for all of your help! - William
|William Lohman||Thank You|
Thank you for responding so quickly to the headstone photo request for Michael Lewis. Do you know if any of his relatives are buried next to him? Thank you again.
|Thomas Tablett||RE: Photo Posts|
Do you have any photos for Collins. I'm looking for several members of this familiy that lived in Central City, Colorado. I believe they may be buried in Catholic Cemetery as they were all Irish Catholics.

I wanted to thank you for you photo posts of Michael & Mary Doran gravemarkers. I greatly appreciate it.

Find A Grave sent me a copy of the message I sent you earlier in the week. I didn't realize I was logged on to Find A Grave at the time I wrote. If you would like to transfer the Gundy family over to me that would be fine.
