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:
- He was born in County Cork, Ireland.
- His mother’s maiden name was Suloven (or possibly Sullivan)
- He died of interstitial hepatitis.
- 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.
