Cluny ------ Death Register of Fall River , pg 129 shows Patrick Cluny death May 20, 1862. -------He is buried in the Catholic Buriel Grounds, Fall River, Ma. ; She is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River, Ma, probably because she wasn't catholic. ------The first church in New Bedford, and, incidentally, in the entire diocese of Fall River, was erected in 1820. An interesting fact to us is that this first edifice, a rather poor structure costing about $800.00, and named St. Mary's, was located in what is now St. James Parish, on the corner of Allen and Orchard Streets. This small plot of land, bought from Edward and Lydia Wing for $80.00, was donated to the priest by a man named PATRICK CLUNY, who shortly after moved to Fall River. (An amazingly startling fact uncovered by this author's Investigation of this history is that the Patrick Cluny who donated this land for the first church In the Diocese of Fall River Is this author's own great-great-grandfather.) The church was built by Father Philip Larissey (or Lariscy), an Augustinian, and was dedicated in 1821 by Bishop Cheverus. Father Fitton, in his diary, recalls it as "a small building, small in reality, as we remember it, located among some rocks, and enclosed with a high board fence, and, as it appeared to us, the least desirable spot in the town." It was an unpretentious edifice of wood, one story high, and neither clapboarded nor painted. There were three wooden steps leading to the door, and two windows in front, with three on each side, all arched at the top, with heavy wooden shutters. A wooden cross surmounted it, setting it off as a place of worship. Later it was painted in a drab color, with green shutters and doors. Inside there was only one aisle, the rows of pews arranged on either side. The altar was plain and wooden, with two narrow risers holding the candles. To one side was a small closet, where the cruets were kept. To the other side, north, was the small sacristy, which also held a few benches along the wall, where the Sunday School classes were held with the priest as teacher. There was no organ available, but on special occasions parishioners played a clarinet and flute. Bishop Benedict J. Fenwick, who succeeded Bishop Cheverus in 1825, describes this first church in New Bedford as a "pitiful little building," but it was a great step forward for the Church in New England, for, it may be hard to realize, there was probably not a single Catholic in the entire city of Fall River at this time. What the Catholic population of New Bedford as at this time is hard to say, but they at least warranted a church. In 1826, when Bishop Fenwick took up his duties as administrator of the Boston Diocese, he had only three priests to help him. He was able from time to time to arrange for help from other dioceses, and these men in their apostolic zeal, often said Mass and gave the Sacraments to the pioneer Catholic families in the state. One 0f these early priests we have already mentioned as the builder of the original St. Mary's Church in New Bedford, Father Philip Larissey. Another, Father Patrick Byrne, the second priest ordained by Bishop Cheverus for his struggling diocese, became pastor 0f New Bedford in 1843. He was expected, not only to care for the spiritual needs of New Bedford, but also of the island of Nantucket as well as Cape Cod. One particular problem that Father Byrne had to face was the fact that many of his congregation in New Bedford, and especially in Sandwich, where the second church of the diocese was built in 1830, were young, unmarried men, who did not hesitate to leave whenever work became scarce. For this reason, the number of Catholics became smaller, even after the churches were built. By ST. JAMES PARISH 1888 - 1963, By REVEREND ALBERT F. SHOVELTON -----Parish Primary Congregation Location Established First Pastor Comments Diocese of Boston Bishop Jean de Cheverus St. Mary Irish New Bedford 1821 Philip Larissey OSA (now St. Lawrence) ----- Traditional Irish Naming Patterns Here is the traditional naming pattern which I have found repeated in several sources. The naming pattern was followed by the majority of parents. I've compared our families' names as far as we know them, and although they don't exactly follow the pattern, they are pretty close... ******************** Sons' Names First Son Named for paternal grandfather Second Son Named for maternal grandfather Third Son Named for father Fourth Son Named for father's oldest brother Fifth Son Named for mother's eldest brother Sixth Son Named for father's second oldest brother **************************** Daughters' Names First Daughter Named after maternal grandmother Second Daughter Named after paternal grandmother Third Daughter Named after mother Fourth Daughter Named after mother's oldest sister Fifth Daughter Named after father's eldest sister Sixth Daughter Named after mother's second oldest sister Any additional children continue the pattern, following the order of father's and mother's brothers and sisters. One other common practice was to name a child after a child who had died within the family. Children of PATRICK CLUNY and SARAH/SALLY ALLEN are: 4. i. JOSEPH HARDING4 CLUNY, b.

This William & Peace are in Westport, MA by 1860 & 1870 census. Also on their son Thomas's death record it states this William Francis was born in Dartmouth (see more on them below under Notes). -------"Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island"/Vol 1, /Jane Fiske, pg 657 shows Charity Lavina Francis, daughter of William Francis and Peace Coggeshall.

Oct. 5, 1804 in Dartmouth (Records of Dartmouth Births 1650-1864). He married Peacy B. Almy in Troy/Fall River on April 1, 1832 (Book 2, pg 243). William's brother John Francis married Polly Thurston in Troy and they lived there for many years. I have a list of John & Polly's children in Troy/Fall River area. William & Peace B. Almy Francis moved to Westport before the 1860 census (Westport 1860 census pg 414) (1870 wEstport census pg 29). Peace B. Almy Francis died Oct 9, 1879 (Westport Death Records). William Francis was living with his son James A Francis in Westport on 1880 census pg 256, showing he is 75 and widowed. I did not look for a death record on him. The reason I got all of this proof was to be extra sure this was not our William & Peace & Priscilla. But, I do think they are related further back, possibly Nathan of Dartmouth (father of the other William) was a brother or cousin to our Henry Francis who is father of our William. The reason I think that is the naming patterns were very similar. This William and Peace Almy Francis's children were: Humphrey A. Francis, John B. Francis, Thomas Andrew Francis who married Lucinda Prentiss Dyer, Charles A. Francis, & James A. Francis. They may have had other children, but I don't have a record of any more. "Dartmouth, MA From OUR COUNTY AND ITS PEOPLE, A DESCRIPTIVE AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF BRISTOL COUNTY MASSACHUSETTS PREPARED AND PUBLISHED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE FALL RIVER NEWS AND THE TAUNTON GAZETTE WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF HON. ALANSON BORDEN OF NEW BEDFORD THE BOSTON HISTORY COMPANY, PUBLISHERS 1899" Dartmouth. - This town was formed from so-called "common land" on June 8, 1664, and included the territory called Acushena, Ponagansett and Coakset. The bounds of the town were defined June 3, 1668. From this territory New Bedford was set off February 23, 1787, Westport July 2, 1787; New Bedford then included what are now Fairhaven and Acushnet. In February a small part of Dartmouth was annexed to Westport, and another tract was likewise set off March 4, 1805. On March 20, 1845, a tract was annexed to New Bedford, and another on May 3, 1888. Dartmouth is bounded on the north by Fall Reiver and Freetown, on the east by New Bedford and Buzzard's Bay, on the south by Buzzard's Bay, and on the west by Westport. It has four post-offices, viz., Dartmouth, North Darthmouth, South Dartmouth, and Nonquitt. There have been post-offices in the past at Aponagansett and Hicksville, but they were closed. The population of the town by the census of 1895 is 3,107; the number of legal voters in that year was 811, and the number of registered voters in 1897 was 713. Darthmouth forms a part of Congressional District No. 13, and constitutes the Third Bristol Senatorial District No. 13, and constitutes the Third Bristol Senatorial District and the Sixth Representative District. Russell's Mills (Dartmouth P. O.) is a hamlet in the southern part of the town, containing a grist mill known as the Allen Howland Mill, a saw mill, a store, a blacksmith and a wheelwright shop. Mills have been in existence here from the very early history of the town. A Christain Church is maintained here. Padanaram (South Dartmouth P. O.) is a small village situated in the southeastern part of Dartmouth on Aponagansett harbor. It has a population of 410, and contains two stores, salt workson either side of the river, one conducted by Nathaniel Howland, the other by Myron Potter, a Methodist church, a Christian, and formerly a Baptist church, a hotel, and a wheelwright shops. A Free Public Library is maintained, for which John Southworth donated $5,000 for a stone building and $3,000 for books. This was a point of considerable shipbuilding in early years; many vessels sailed from here and various industries were carried on. Capt. Jireh Sherman was an old-time merchant here. In recent years this has become a popular summer resort and is now connected with New Bedford by electric cars. Smith's Mills (North Dartmouth P. O.) is a hamlet centrally located in the town, on the electric railroad between New Bedford and Fall River. It has a population of 285. It was one of the earliest settled points in this region. Former merchants were William and John Cummings, who also owned the mills, Hiram Whalon and Abner P. Barker. The place now contains two stores, a grist mill and saw mill, two blacksmiths and two wheelwrights, a Christian Baptist and a Quaker church. Nonquitt is a hamlet and post-office situated on Buzzard's Bay in the extreme southeastern part of the town. In recent years it has attained considerable popularity as a summer resort and a large hotel was erected, which was burned and has not been rebuilt. Hixville is a small settlement int the northern part of the town. A post-office was formerly maintained, but it has been abandoned. It contains a Christian church, a saw mill and blacksmith shop. Aponagansett is a small hamlet at the head of the river and harbor of that name, in the southern part of the town. It has no business interests of account. A Quaker church is located here. Each of the hamlets named above has a school near at hand. The town of Dartmouth is almost wholly an agricultural district, the mercantile and manufacturing interests being lest than they were many years ago. The farmers produce considerable milk for the New Bedford market and mixed farming is followed. Among prominent farmers of the town may be mentioned Andrew H. King, Silas Faunce, Warren Seabury, George Hicks, Pardon Brownell, William Davis, Zachariah Spooner, James E. and Henry T. Allen, John O. Slocum and Edward Cook. The southern section of this town, bordering on Buzzard's Bay, has become a desirable location for summer residents, and at Bay View, Nonquitt near Padanaram, and at Saltus Point at the lower end of the Smith's Neck, many cottages have been erected. -------The question about Pardon Perry. We know our William Sr. definitely had brother Thomas because they are both mentioned in the Will of Roger Cory their step-father. Thomas Francis married Elizabeth Perry, this is proven in the death record of their daughter Louisa P. Cook dated July 1, 1867 (I have a copy of this also). We figure she is probably the sister to Pardon Perry because the 2 Francis brothers stayed so close to Pardon Perry throughout all of their years. -----Mildred Mayhew, my mothers's sister wrote: Grandma Priscilla (Cluny) Francis lived next door to her daughter Grandma Mary (Francis) Murray. Priscilla was actually her Great-Grandma. She also said one of Priscilla Cluny's brothers moved to Hawaii and married a member of (Queen Lileokalani (sp?) family. Priscillas daughter Edith went to visit them in Hawaii. Mildred Mayhew said in the 1920s she used to write a Priscilla Cluny in Hawaii who was a distant cousin, but lost contact with her. Wanda Peleholani is a descendant of that line. I have quite a bit on them that was sent to me by Wanda. Children of PRISCILLA CLUNY and WILLIAM FRANCIS are: i. WILLIAM F.5 FRANCIS, b. 1854; d. February 17, 1857, Fall River, Bristol Co, MA. Notes for WILLIAM F. FRANCIS: PROOF: -----PG 51 of Fall River death records shows he is son of William & Priscilla Francis. He was 3 yrs, 5 mos. old and died of Scarlatina. 8. ii. PRISCILLA E. FRANCIS, b. 1855. iii. EMMA R. FRANCIS, b. 1858; d. 1880, Oak Grove Cemetery, Fall River, MA. iv. WILLIAM A. FRANCIS, b. 1861; d.

JESSIE FRANCIS, b. 1872. 6. JOHN COAQUIEN4 CLUNY (PATRICK3, PATRICK2, MR.1) was born July 29, 1838 in Fall River, MA, and died April 28, 1910 in onolulu, HI. He married (1) EMMA KEKKAULAHAO. She was born in Hawaii, and died in Fall River, MA. He married (2) CAROLINEKAAIPILIOLE MAHONEY Abt. 1888 in Hawaii, daughter of JAMES MAHONEY and REBECCA LIPEKA. She was born October 1866 in ahaina, Maui, HI, and died September 28, 1945 in Honolulu, HI. Notes for JOHN COAQUIEN CLUNY: This line of information came from his direct descendant, Wanda (Baker) Peleholani in Hawaii. NOTES: He sailed as a Captain on a whaling ship to Hawaii and married a Hawaiian woman named Emma. He took her back to Fall River, MA where she died. He came back to Hawaii and married Caroline Mahoney and had 3 sons. I found the name Coalan and it is Celtic. Possibly the name Coaquien is celtic? Children of JOHN CLUNY and CAROLINE MAHONEY are: i.

Also sent me a plat of their cemetery plots; NOTES: I did find an entry in the passenger manifests in the Dallas Library. the closest entry I could locate was John Murray 21, Barber birthplace: penn (could this be a mistake?) Residence: Mass Ship: S. S. "Carroll" (I don't think he was a Barber either. I doubt this is him, but couldn't locate any other entry for Jan 3, 1881 as he stated in his Naturalization papers) Someone suggested seeing if there were seperate State Lists! -------Kathy, The pin you have probably is of Murray origion.Murray clan plant is listed as "butchers broom,juniper". The cloth could come from the Murray's of Atholl or Murray's closely aligned with the Athollians (lots of green in their tartan,none of the red used by other Murrays).The clan plant for the Murrays of Atholl could be different also.Pin is probably for ceremonies (attached to tam,kilt ,stocking).I'm no expert but hope this helps.
