Tombstone Showing Place of Birth

For the most part the inscriptions are overwhelmingly of Irish immigrants to the Capital District Region. While some inscriptions merely say “Ireland” a large number are more specific and identify the County in Ireland

along with the name of the town and the name of the Parish.

The following data elements may be part of individual inscriptions:

– Maiden name of wife

– Relationship of inscribed names, husband, wife, mother, father, daughter, son, aunt, niece, etc.

– Dates of birth, dates of death, age at death, place of birth, place of death.

– When the surnames on a particular stone are different surnames, this may be an indication of a family relationship.
