Joseph Francis Carrico Obituary

Joseph F. Carrico is my second cousin three times removed.  All the Carrico’s in Washington County are related!  William M. Carrico and Mary Jane O’Daniel were Joseph’s parents.  The large Last Supper that hung above my grandmother’s kitchen table, while she was alive, and is now in my kitchen, was purchased from an ‘old’ William Carrico.  Perhaps this is he?  Born about 1820 he was 53 years older than my grandmother.

Joseph F. Carrico, 1849-1909.  Isabell F. Carrico, 1850-1920.  St. Rose Catholic Cemetery, Washington County, Kentucky.

Joe F. Carrico Dead

Mr. Joe F. Carrico died at his home four miles south of Springfield early yesterday morning.  About one year ago Mr. Carrico suffered a severe stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered.  About two weeks ago he received another stroke which was the immediate cause of his death.

Mr. Carrico was about sixty years of age, and the son of Mr. William Carrico, who died many years ago.  Early in life he was married to Miss Belle Johnson, a daughter of Mr. Henry Johnson.  The greater portion of his life was spent on the farm where he died.  He leaves his wife and one son, Damon Carrico, of Lebanon.  The funeral will take place at St. Rose this morning at 9 o’clock.

  1. My husbands grandfather John W Lynch married Susan Frances Carrico in 1868, daughter of Edward B Carrico. Edward was son of Levi Carrico. Our Carrico family lived in Curdsville area & attended St. ALphonsis church. I don’t know where Frances is buried. We would like to go to the church and look at their records. I live in Missouri so i guess it would be best to have an appointment with the secretary before we make the trip.

    Thank you,
    Jackie Lynch
