My mother was Patricia Anne, who died in Sept. of 1992, I am still bothered by that fact, we miss her so much.
I will be 46 in August, and have been persuing information on John, your father, and his father.
Thank you for telling me that your father and Gr.father are buried up there, maybe even his wife Margaret. I called up to St. Joseph's in Boston for anything on Thomas's burial, and the woman was quite difficult to deal with. I sent them the $10 to search for the two names,Thomas and John Fitzpatrick, since Norman has given me a mixed bag of information, anything that there was not documentation for has been erroneous.
I have received verification on Thomas in the Civil War, he joined in Albany, in Nov. of 1862 (I hope I am remembering correctly, the document is in the car to have copies made to send to Norman and you if you would like), and mustered out in Sept. of 1863. He was in the 177th infantry.
There was nothing about his family or place of birth, though I know that it is in Ireland, and Margaret was born in England, as John's birth document states.
I am still waiting for that birth copy from New York City Archives, they are a mess to deal with. I held off looking for Thomas's death certificate in New York, since it stated in John's obituary that they moved to Boston when he was a boy. So I was hoping that he died and was buried in Boston and not New York, as Norman stated.
My address is: 7541 Whitehall Drive, Manassas, Va. 20111-1606. Number is (703)335-6982.

Thank you for contacting me about our common lineage, I am in touch with Priscilla often,
but she is not interested in any of this, so I am on my own.
