Anyone have info on where burial books for St. Patrick's cemetery might be? Or where a list of those buried there might be? Understood that sometime during the 1930's Conservation Corp took a physical inventory? Anyone know where I can get that info? Any help appreciated. Thanks

The original cemetery records for St Patrick's cemetery (also referrred to as Old Catholic cemetery), Hartford CT were destroyed by fire in 1913. At some later date a survey was made of the existing headstones and that record is at Mt St Benedict Cemetery. I'm not sure if this list is the same as the Hale Cemetery Inscriptions project or not. The Hale Cemetery Inscriptions can be found at CT State Library.

Hi Kathleen,

Thanks for your reply. Would you know of anyone who could do a look-up for me? I posted a request for this in hopes that someone will. I visited St. Pat's cemetery years ago, looking for Ann Neary who was suppose to be buried there(info from death certs). Keefe, and Dowling. Couldn't find them, many of the stone were turned over and in bushes. Area was not the best at that time too-although we did look at the majority of the standing headstones. The books were in transition at that time so didn't get a look at those. Living on West Coast now so looking at them is not possible.

Maureen - I checked at the CT State Library today on the Hale collection, CT Headstone Inscriptions, for St Patrick Cemetery, Hartford. That listing was prepared in Nov 1934. There was no listing for Ann Neary or any other Neary. She could have been buried there, but no stone erected. I checked to see if there were listings for that name at other CT cemeteries in the Hale collection. There were 3 possibles. Annie Neary (1864-?) in East Windsor; Annie Neary 1846-1908 in Old Saybrook; and Annie Mulrooney Neary died Dec 22, 1921, age 62, buried in Stratford.

I did find a number of listings for Keefe and Dowling at St Patrick Cemetery. I'll contact you at your email with details.

I have been searching for my great great grandparents John and Johanna Burke. He died in 1886-1888 which would have been destroyed in the fire but his wife died Aug 1924. They had a daughter Ellen who died in 1879 and Lizza who died after 1880. I can't find info anywhere I called St. Benedicts and got nowhere. I have no obits or death certificates. I am stuck don't have any idea when and where they arrived from if they married hear or in Ireland. Thanks for any help!

I am researching the McEnroe family of New Britain, including the family of Joseph Alphonse McEnroe and his grandfather Thomas McEnroe, born 1805 County Cavan. I live in NB, so makes it easier.

Re: Parents of Joseph McEnroe news items.

Judging by the 1880 and 1900 US census, the parents of Joseph A. McEnroe of New Britain, CT appear to have been Patrick and Elizabeth McEnroe (her maiden name may possibly have been 'Healy'). Attached are the news items of Patrick's and Elizabeth's deaths. It is strange that surviving son Joseph is not named in his parents death notices but he IS mentioned in his Aunt Mary's 1914 obituary.

It seems that Joseph was a traveling kind of guy, Hartford Courant newspaper items mention his departure from New Britain for Denver in 1909 and then to Wyoming in 1911 and his return in 1915 after a four year absence, "spending most of that time in Kansas City". It looks like he is in Chicago, Illinois in the 1920 census, 31 years old and single.

Hope the attached helps you.
