obliged him to quit the work which he enjoyed.

married in Bloomfield, Pittsburgh, by the Rev. U. RAENGAERTNER, pastor of
Baum's Evangelical Lutheran church.  Mrs. GROSSHEIM survives him with two

There is also a St. Patrick's in Canonsburg, Washington Co. The one that is mentioned in many of my obits is the one in Noblestown, Allegheny County. Also located just outside of McDonald, but a smaller and somewhat less well cared for cemetery, not too far from Robinson's Run. Victoria Hospodar Valentine
