    I am looking for information on my grandmother, Hannah (Clohessy) Smallman, buried at Holy Cross Cemetary in January 1955, and my grandfather, John Smallman, buried at Holy Cross in June 1930. I would like to know the location of their graves, and any birth location information you might have on my grandmother. I know she was born in Ireland, sometime in the 1880s, but would like any town or county information.

    I would also like grave location information for my great grandparents, Solomon Smallman and Ellen(Connor) Smallman. My great grandfather was buried, I think, in 1918 and my great grandmother, I think, in 1927. Both are in Holy Cross Cemetary according to stories I have been told.

    Any information you can share with me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I would not expect them to be buried at Holy Cross. Why do you think they are in this cemetery?
