Recently purchased an out-of-print copy of Tombstones of the Irish Born by Joseph M. Silinonte. The author lists all people buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY whose tombstones have references to Ireland or places in Ireland. An internet search had led me to believe I could find my ancestors listed - names were correct but not the dates. However, I would be glad to do lookups for people. The book was not available in any library in my state.

The only Gallagher I found for sure was Patrick from Belmullet, Mayo - died at the age of 49- 3/7/1887. There are also 2 Gallaghers in a Henry grave. Thomas Henry was from Tyrone, but his wife Bridget was from Mayo. Also in this plot are an Anne M. Gallagher 1/3/1896 - 4/25/1960 and a Helen R. Gallagher 1882-1969 - no indication where they are from.

Surnames: DRISCOLL, McDERMOTT
Hi Jean - My family is also DRISCOLL, and we know that several of them are buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, but with no stone. However, if you could look for Patrick (born about 1865) and Mary Driscoll (born about 1866), John Driscoll (died as an infant in 1928), or Patrick and Bridget McDermott, it would be great.

Tim - sorry, but I couldn't find anyone - Driscoll or McDermott - with the names you listed. There is one Patrick McDermott
(died 1886) 48 yrs. old from Sligo but wife's name is Mary. Our Driscolls are all buried in Calvary cemetery as they lived in Manhattan.

Hi Jean,
I have been searching for my ggrandparents for years. I have been told that they are buried in Holy Cross and the grafe is in the St. Teresa section, range c, plots 5-7. His name is Cornelius O'Leary, wife: Hanora, son; William. Any help would be a great help.
Thanks
Ron

Ron, sorry but your O'Leary family is not listed in Tombstones of the Irish Born. Remember the only people listed are those whose tombstones mention a place in Ireland. If you know the section and plot, you can get a list of those buried in those plots(for a fee, of course). A helpful person at Calvary Cemetery in NY told me to ask for Susan at Holy Cross. Good Luck!!!
