bullet  General Notes:

Michael (Sr) is buried at Calvary . His tombstone says born 1/6/1836 however I think that was information from his second wife. Not sure how correct that date is but it is the only one we have other than census. His second wife is Anna O'Connor. married Oct 22 1881 in Chicago. As you can see from the dates he didn't wait very long to remarry. The list of people buried with Michael are as follows:1) Infant Moroney (Matthew"s child) 2)Anna Moroney (second wife) 3)Michael (jr) 4)infant Moroney (Matthew's child) 5) Mary Therese White (Michael's daughter) 6 ) Elizabeth T Moroney ( Michael's daughter) 7)Catherine Barry Moroney (Michael's first wife) 8) Catherine A Maroney ? Date of Internment 7/4/1870 9)Margaret A Maroney ? Date of Internment 10/26/1869 10) James and Mary Moroney ? Date of Internment 7/16 1866. This is an 8 X 10 foot plot so they have to be burried almost on top of each other. Plot was purchased July 14, 1866.

Note to self: I see a Michael Moroney (b. 1-1839) living w/ an Ann as his wife (b. 1-1850). Their children are "Mathew" (b. 12-1882) and Theresa (b. 9-1876). Living at 429 26th St. This is just right next door to 431 W. 26th St., where Catherine Maroney's funeral was from.

Buried in grave together: Michael Moroney (interment 8-23-13), Infant Moroney (4-13-18), Anna Moroney (4-8-21), Michael Moroney (8-23-23), Infant Maroney (sic) (9-24-23), Mary White (7-23-26), Elizabeth T. Maroney (sic) 6-23-1880, Catherine Maroney (sic) (7-4-1870), Margaret A. Maroney (sic) (10-26-1869), James & Mary Moroney (7-16-1866). It's an 8x10 grave & the form says "No. of Graves: 3" Owned by Michael Moroney.

A photo of his death cert is available through Ancestry.com. Ronald Kolb wrote that Michael was from Galbally, Limerick, Ireland. I don't know his source for this info. FamilySearch's "IL, Deaths & Stillbirths, 1916-1947" shows for Mary Moroney White that the birthplace of her father (Michael Moroney) was Tippery (sic), Ireland.
