St. Lawrence O'Toole Parish (1855-1948) 14th and O"Fallon Streets St Louis MO "State of Missouri County of St Louis of entity, that I have this day penned in the Holy bonds of Matrimony, Thomas Ahern and Catherine Croake beatified by me this 1st day of June AD 1856 (St. Lawrence O'Toole's Church).Filed and recorded January 29th 1857, I Keemle Recorder.James Henry, Catholic Priest."
Additionally, the 1856 Catholic marriage record at O'Toole says Thomas' parents were Michael and Anne Ring, Catherine's parents were Michl. Croake and Mary Ryan and a witness was Margaret Croake.
I have been researching Ahearn burial records in St Louis and was led to this record.Thomas and Catherine are some kind of relative to me but tracing is slow. Thomas was a witness at my GGrandparents 1871 marriage (David AHEARN m. Ellen MALONEY), also Thomas & Catherine lived about 3 houses away from David at 2610 and 2616 Cass St.
