Mary Fallon – Mt. Olivet Cemetery


Mary Fallon, born Co. Longford, Ireland, October 21, 1835, died December 29, 1884.  Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Bourbon County, Kentucky

Other than the above gravestone, the only information I found about Mary Fallon was a census record of Bourbon County, Kentucky, for 1880.  Mary is listed as 45, with husband Patrick, 44, both born in Ireland.  Patrick is a laborer.  The couple had two children, Kate, 19, and Michael, 15, both born in Kentucky.  It sounds as if Mary and Patrick married in Ireland and came to the United States about 1860.  Or perhaps they came separately and found comfort and love from one who shared a common homeland and culture.
