Dear Jim,

Here's the information you requested:


From Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois

Mt Sterling Catholic Cemetery, p. 175

Nicolas Monckton, 1827 - 1912

Catherine Drew, wife of Nicholas Monckton, 1843 - 22 Apr 1902 [day and month from p.409]


Mary E. Monckton, dau of John and Bridget Monckton, 1885 - 1967


These do not look like the people you are looking for. There are no other Nickolas's listed in the Cemeteries book. I suggest looking in the 1900 Census to see if he shows up there. It appears that he may have left the County before his death.


Sorry, I coiuldn't be more help.


Ken Huffman

I'm trying to trace my family on my Mother's side, Monckton.

This family left Ireland towards the end of the 19th century and settled in

Mt Sterling.

My great-grandfather was Nicholas Monckton who was born in 1853 and

emigrated to the US about 1891. I've lost track of him from that time but

noticed 2 listings for Nicholas Monckton in the Brown County cemetery book,

one on page 175 and the other on page 409. I do know that he married Mary

O'Neal and the book lists Mary Monckton on page 175 and Monckton, Wife (of

Nicholas)________ on page 409.


I would be grateful for any further details.

Thanks in anticipation


Jim FitzGerald
