Questions and comments:
- Winand Wigger was the Bishop of Newark. He died on Jaunary 6th, 1901
- I found a reference to L.C.M. Carroll in an Feb 12, 1900 NYT article.
“However, mass was celebrated by Bishop Wigger at Bethlehem on New Year’s Day. Bishop Wigger acting as celebrant; the Rev. L. C. M. Carroll as deacon, and the Rev. John Poels, as sub-deacon.
- I found mentions of a Rev. John W. Keogh in New Jersey about the right time in the “Catholic Educational Review” (1918) (and also a James W. Keogh who was a lawyer).
- I could not find any references to “Limbacks”.
