My great-great-grandfather was John McNamara who married Mary McInerney. Mary and her two children, John and Brigitta, are buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, in Litchfield, Montgomery County, Illinois. There is no indication that John was buried there.
The 1880 census records indicate that John, 50, and Mary, 47, had two children, Dennis, 20, and Kate, 15. John and Mary were both born in Ireland; Dennis and Kate, in Illinois.
The Holy Cross Readings are as follows:
Mary McNamara: 57y - 30 Jun 1884 (i.e. born about 1827).
John McNamara: ???? - 17 Sep 1877, s/o John & Mary McInerney McNamara.
Brigitta McNamara: ???? - 16 Apr 1878, d/o John & Mary McInerney McNamara.
I have no further information re: Dennis McNamara. Kate NcNamara, a.k.a. Katie, is Catherine Ursula McNamara, my great-grandmother. She married William Flynn on 05 Sep 1893, in Litchfield, Montgomery County, Illinois. Both William Flynn and Catherine McNamara Flynn are also buried at Holy Cross Cemetery.
Any help would be appreciated. I have other information to share.
