I’ve Got Mail: Patrick O’Connor’s Death Certificate

I always love getting real mail.:)

The other day, I received Patrick O’Connor’s death certificate.  I already had his death date, but I was hoping for a birth date and the names of his parents.  No such luck.  They actually wrote his name twice – once under name and another for his birth date.  Darn.

I did glean a few bits of new information from this document though:

  1. He was born in County Cork, Ireland.
  2. His mother’s maiden name was Suloven (or possibly Sullivan)
  3. He died of interstitial hepatitis.
  4. He was buried in January of 1906 ( I can’t decide if it says the 2nd or the twenty something)

I’ll take what I can get.:)

    Darn! It’s been too long since I have received any goodies in the mail. I love the anticipation…stalking the mail person each day, eagerly opening the mail box, the joy of holding that unopened envelope in my hand! It’s time I made a list of needed goodies and send off for them!ReplyCancel

    I am waiting for two death certificates. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I am hoping the one will give me where in Germany my great grandfather came from??????ReplyCancel

    I love mail! I can’t wait to see some of mine start trickling in… :) I am still so intrigued we both have “Thornton” lines & they haven’t crossed yet.

    Good news is that you have a semi-birth location in Cork, Ireland… maybe his name will pop up in some parish records over there…?ReplyCancel

    Incidentally, you can also glean the following info:
    1. He was 73 years old at the time of his death, making his likely birth date sometime in 1823.
    2. His wife predeceased him (which will make finding her death certificate a little easier).
    3. He had to have been buried on Jan 2 1906. The certificate was filed with the Registrar on Jan 2, so unless they could tell the future … :)

    Sadly, I’ve run into the same brick wall with my GGGrandfather’s birth. Perhaps church records will hold the answers to your birth question. That’s where all my hope lies at this point. I’m waiting for a response from the church as we speak. My fingers are crossed for you!ReplyCancel
