Tombstone Tuesday/Bridget Hogan Ryan

     This is the tombstone of my 3rd great uncle Andrew Ryan's wife Bridget Hogan in St. Anne's Catholic Cemetery in Palmyra, NY.  Andrew and Bridget were married at Palmyra on August 23, 1856.  Bridget was born in Ireland (likely Tipperary) to Thomas Hogan and Catherine O'Dwyer.  She may have been a cousin of Andrew, whose mother was Alice O'Dwyer, though that surname is very common in Tipperary where Andrew and his mother Alice were from.
