Re: Reached a brick wall...... Catholic Diocese Containing Manistee

Thank you for the information! Bartholomew's brother, Michael, died in Manistee in December 1869 and last year someone presently living in Manistee told me that St Mary's is the oldest parish but did not yet exist at that time. She told me that a Catholic cemetery did not exist yet and residents were buried on the north side of town at that time which is now a parking lot.She didn't know if bodies were reinterred elsewhere but St Mary's had no record of a Michael Bonk buried there. Was also told (by I believe by the Gaylord Diocese) that at the time 1870-1875 since there was no parish in Manistee, Catholics were served by an itinerant or traveling priest so records would be difficult or impossible. Don't shoot the writer....just repeating what I was told.
