Tombstone Tuesday: Catholic Cemetery, Savannah

The two tombstones pictured here are locate in the Catholic Cemetery just outside of Savannah (Chatham County), Georgia. The cemetery is located on Wheaton Street, not far from the intersection with Skidaway Road. I last visited the lovely cemetery in 2005 when I was helping Pat Jones gather data for her book (which turned into two volumes), Across the Ocean of Promise: The Irish in Georgia. We abstracted data from each tombstone indicating an individual had been born in Ireland.
