Thanks Ruth, I have used IRAD. I appreciate the mention of typo in my data base. I am in the process of trying to clean it up ... before it gets too much bigger. Apparently William McQuaid did not remarry. But there are children living in Chicago... one of these days he will surface. thanks for the encouragement. I have written to Pineview Cemetery, Lake Co., IL and to Mt. Calvary, Cook Co., IL. Catherine Garrity nee McQuaid is buried there with her husband and family. I found a William McQuaid who died in 1846 buried in Pine view - but I don't reconize the names of his parents... still hopeful. I don't think that William died in California although Maurice did settle there and is buried there...still need to do more gathering of information.
