In January I saw this posting on the Leitrim-Roscommon Bulletin Board:http://www.leitrim-roscommon.com/lrboard/
"Looking for family info on Bernard F. Mitchell,
(reportedly) born Castlerae, County Roscommon in 1849. Emigrated to U.S. April 1874 using passport stolen from his brother while family was at Mass. Lived in NY, IL, and IA. Married Catherine Frances Flynn (daughter of Peter Flynn and Anastasia Maher or Mahr) in 1878 and died in 1923."
I have a note with no references that shows Bernard had 4 brothers and 2 sisters: Margaret, Michael, Patrick, Bridgit, Mary, Bartley, James. It may be that I got this from the 1900 Crawford County census for Hayes Township or the Town of Vail. These are both on the Crawford web site.
I also have it noted that Bartley died in 1921 and is buried in the "Old Catholic" cemetery on the west side of Vail. When I was in Vail to look around in St. Ann's Cemetery, I didn't know of another Catholic cemetery, so maybe "Old Catholic" and St. Ann's are the same cemetery.
