Name on HeadstoneDescription of ErrorMy Name
FLYNN The headstone listed as "Nicholas Flynn" actually states "Mrs. Nicholas Flynn"...my ggrandmother (Mariah) not her husband, my ggrandfather Nicholas as stated in error. He apparently died in 1921 and is buried somewhere in that graveyard. Gerry Flynn
