This is a wild guess.....since the McNerney family was from Ireland, they were possibly Catholic. The town of Blue Earth (7 miles from Jo Daviess Twp) has a Catholic Cemetery with early burials. It is named Calvary, but it is now a part of the Riverside Cemetery. You could maybe write to the Riverside Cemetery Assoc. in Blue Earth MN 56013 and see if they have any McNerney/Burns burials.

Looking for brothers, sisters, or parents of Franklin H. McNerney b. 1845. His family immigrated to America from Ireland in 1852. Franklin purchased land in Joe Davises Twnp in Faribault Co. in 1875. He married Margaret Burns whose parents immigrated to America when she was 16 yrs. old in 1862. Her family also settled in Faribault Co, we think. Franklin and Margaret had nine children of which 6 survived. Anna 1870, Gretta 1872, Mary 1875, Francis P. 1877, Charles 1879 and James 1884. Mary was a school teacher in Blue Earth. I seem to be stuck at this point!

Margaret, I appreciate your thought. I wrote to the cemetery on May 31, 2000 but haven't heard from them. The McNerneys were Catholic. I also wrote to the Catholic church, but haven't heard from them. My husband, mother and I do have our reservations to fly to MN Sept. 30th - Oct. 7. We are going to Caledonia (Houston Co.) to look up info I need for my father's family (Seuffert) and then to Blue Earth & Fairmont to look up McNerney, Burns, Simmons & Rose. We also have Hoover & Shute in St. Paul area. It probably is crazy doing all sides of the family at the same time, but this way I am always discovering something and I have so little time to work on genealogy that I am thrilled with what I find. When you consider that no one in our immediate family is working or has ever worked on our genealogy, it makes everything I find worthwhile--and I have found some treasurers.

I have seven census reels that I ordered to review in the next few weeks at our local Family History center. Mother & I have already looked at 10 others. We are getting good at this. I am trying to find as much as I can before we fly to MN, so that our time in the Courthouses and cemeteries is productive. I was so hoping to discover a relative or two who might have personal information for mother. When mother was a child, she saw a picture of a family cemetery plot, but she can't remember if it was the Roses, or Simmons (her mother's family).

I always appreciate hearing from you. You have excellent suggestions and seem to steer me in the right direction. I'm trying to plan my search in the Courthouses now. Since there will be the three of us looking, I want to make the best of our time. We may never get back to MN again. It is special that my husband is willing to do this for mother and I. Diana
