Details in the Stone

Tombstone of Margaret Greene, St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Logan Township, Raymond, South Dakota.

This tombstone of Margaret Greene, great-grandmother of my husband, provided the only record we could find for her birth– Rosscarbary, Ireland.

She was born Margaret Callaghan.  The names of her parents, Daniel Callaghan and Kate Harrington, were obtained from the marriage record.  She married Patrick Greene, 19 Oct. 1870 at St. Patrick’s Church, New York.  (Not the St. Patrick’s Cathedral.)  However, the marriage records only record her birth place as Ireland.

I am grateful  her survivors included this information.  Strangely, her husband Patrick’s stone does not have his place of birth.  (Details about Patrick Greene are in a previous post.)
