Just a hint for people searching for cemetery records- A way to find out who
has the burial records for a particular cemetery is to contact one or more
of the local funeral homes or mortuaries. They usually know. Or see if
the place has achurch or a cemetery association connected to it. A search
in the online Yellow Pages may give you a clue on who to call.

Subject: [IAJACKSO] St. Patrick Cemetery Garryowen
Would someone be able to tell me how to contact St. Patrick Cemetery
Garryowen, Jackson County,IA. I am looking for the burial of my
gggrandmother Sarah RITCHIE MCGINTY who died between 1856 and 1860 and for
her son William Cornelius MCGINTY, b. 1842, baptized 1863 in St. Martin's
Catholic Church Cascade. He was listed in the 1860 Census and I have not
been able to find him after that date. He was listed in the baptismal
records for the church with sponsors so I am assuming that it was not a
I would appreciate any help or a look-up if someone is close to the area
will be visiting the cemetery.
