Questions and comments:

  • Wademan was Nathaniel’s ex-wife’s maiden name – she died a few years previously (in 1897, I believe). It’s reasonable to believe that this is one of his in-laws, but I don’t know for sure. Anyone know?
  • I found a reference to Rev. Pius O’Connor in a book published in 1903; he was associated with St. Michael’s in Hoboken, N.J.
  • There was (is?) a convent of the “Dominican Sisters of the Perpetual Rosary” in West Hoboken – I wonder if that was what he was referring to.
  • There is a Bernard Kearns (1854-1925) buried in St. Peter’s Cemetery in Jersey City.
