  • Notes 
    • The baptism of MARY and her younger brother PATRICK are not in the parish registers of ERINSVILLE for some reason.

      "Mary Creegan", "age 15," was confirmed in Flinton, Ontario in September 1885 by Rev'd J.V. Cleary, Bishop of Kingston. according to the parish registers of Assumption of BVM microfilmed by the LDS. Her death registration filed by her daughter Stella provides the name "Mary Theresa Craigen", perhaps indicating that she chose Theresa (or as she spelled it Teresa) as her confirmation name; finding the record of her name at baptism might confirm or deny this

      Known as "Mamie," possibly pronounced as "Mayne"

      The marriage of Michael Flynn and Mary Craigen is noted in the marriage registers of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Erinsville. The civil marriage registration states that they were married at the Roman Catholic Church at Flinton by the Rev. George A Cicolari. (Certificate #007241)
