Tombstone Tuesday - O'Brien Surname, Town of Humphrey, Cattaraugus Co, NY

"In Memory of Ann O'Brien, born in Co Westmeath, Ireland, Feb. 2, 1834, Died June 9, 1902"

From the St. Pacificus Roman Catholic Churchyard, town of Humphrey, Cattaraugus County, New York:

"Bridget, wife of Peter Lyons, Died Feb 5, 1879, Ae 58 Years"

"Daniel O'Brien, Died Nov. 16, 1883, Aged 82 Y S, Native of Co. Westmeath, Ireland"

"Teresa, wife of..." Tombstone was found broken in March of 2012, but an online inscription found here indicates that she was the wife of Daniel O'Brien, and died Aug. 27, 187- , age 50 years 9 months. Daniel listed her as an executor when he wrote his will in  December 1876, so she must have died between 1877-1879.

These four tombstones are found to the immediate left of the front of the churchyard in a row. They are posted in the row order from left to right.
