Miner Information: 
Settled in the vicinity of Colliery Avenue, a street in south Scranton (Minooka section).  Worked at the breaker and  mine just over the hill from his residence.  Belonged to Saint Joseph’s Church (records extant ?), south Scranton (Minooka section).  John and Bridget did not know one another in Ireland.  They met and wed in the USA.  Originally ten offspring, yet my understanding is that one died in infancy.  Both spoke Celtic Irish, and the “legend” within the family is that Bridget died within six months of her husband, of a broken heart, John having preceded her in death.  Their graves are in Minooka cemetery, Scranton.  Author’s name is exactly his (and we’re supposed to look alike).
