Transcription (by Pauline Connolly)
Some of the grave stones told life stories almost too sad to even contemplate.
“Erected By Patrick Meehan
In memory of his beloved wife
Ellen Meehan Nee Glynn
A native of Milltown, County Galway who died March 1909
Also their children
Michael Died 1892 Aged 3
Patrick Died 1894 Aged 4
John Died 1899 Aged 11 months
Patricia, Thomas and Ann Meehan who died in infancy”
Is it even possible to contemplate how poor Ellen Meehan Nee Glynn from Milltown County Galway dealt with the loss of all those children and she so far away from home?
