Investigating cemetery records for Holy Cross cemetery in Brooklyn NY. This plot (Section St Peter Row K Plot 3) is the resting place for quite a few family members:
- "Timothy Kehoe", listed in cemetery records as having died in 1885 at age 8. There are TWO Timothy Keoghs in the family: the patriarch was Timothy Keogh, b. about 1812 d. 1868 (ref. Death Certificate # 2371, 1868, Kings County). I suspect that he is in this plot since this death certificate indicates that Mr. Kehoe (d. 1868) was buried in Flatbush, where Holy Cross is located, also, the death certificate has this same spelling of the name ("Timothy Kehoe"). However, there was also a grandson named Timothy Keogh who died at age 8: possibly the two records have gotten jumbled together?
- Timothy's wife, Bridget Kenniff Keogh (1825-1891) is present. There are US census records for Timothy and Bridget with children John, Catherine and William: possibly there were older daughters [Margaret Mary (1841), Brigid (1844) and Mary (1846)] who remained in Ireland?
- Timothy and Bridget's son John Keogh (1856-1938), John's wife Catherine Mcginnis (1825-1891), and infant John Keogh (1886 - 1886) are here as well. John and Catherine had other children
Rose Keogh (1885 – ?) m. J. Ryan
Agnes R Keogh (1887 –?), m. McCaffery
Charles Joseph Keogh (1889 – 1956) m. J. Sullivan
Mary T. Keogh (1889 – ?)
Catherine M. Keogh (1891 – 1965), m. B. Rinklin
William Anthony Keogh (1894 – 1967), m. E. Cade
- Timothy and Bridget's other son William Keogh (1849 - 1889), William's son Timothy Keogh (1877-1885) and daughter Winifred (1884 – 1897) are also in this plot. Two other daughters, Mary b. 1879 and Annie b. 1882, may have lived in Brooklyn's St Joseph Female Orphanage following William's death.
- "Ann Kebride" (1875?-1876), whom I suspect was Ann Kilbride, a daughter of Timothy and Bridget's daughter Catherine Keogh Kilbride (1851-1905)
- Patrick Gillen (1870?- 1871). The cemetery records list the owner of the plot as Daniel Gillen, so I suspect that this infant was the child of Mr. Gillen and his wife, one of the Keogh daughters(?)
There is no headstone on this plot.
