funeral flowers for john james broderick

Picture courtesy of Anne Bryan Broderick who notes, "This is the Broderick family plot at Calvary Cemetary, taken the day John James Broderick’s funeral in 1919."

Right is a stunning image of flowers everywhere at a funeral.  Note the “IKE” headstone on the right with “MORIARITY” on bottom, and the tree in the middle, with the huge “SLEVIN” headstone on the left.    In the image, you can see JJB’s casket is right in the middle, and the tree was just recently planted.  Now the tree is huge!!!   Fascinating!!!!! I also note that today's photography is very wide angle compared to the 1919 image.

When did JJB arrive in the US?     December 29, 1849, when he was only 3.

It is generally believed that JJB arrived in the US anytime between when he was 3 and when he was 14.

However, the following is JJB's handwriting that he has arrived in the US December 29, 1849. I was so very thrilled to find this 1901 passport where JJB has filled out the form and signed signifying that he arrived in the US in 1849 and was naturalized September 11, 1868.

Where was JJB Born?

Remember that newspaper article that Joan photocopied years ago and mailed out?

I read this morning an excerpt that leads me to believe Glengarrif is the birthplace for JJB.


Is this proof we need that JJB was born in Glengarrif?
I have taken the following exerpt from the original article (photoshot as it hangs in the MO. house of Bryan Broderick)  Full Article here allows zooming.

They had to get the information somewhere to write the article.  I assume that family was contacted in order to write the 1946 article.

A copy of  $5,000 check that was Emilie’s monthly allowance in 1928.  Wow.

Pics of JJB as a young man.  One pic has him in a buzz cut and a goute (spelling?) the hair just on the middle of the chin.
A great pic of Emilie looking about 20.  Another pic of JJB as a young man.   Anne was right.  Her middle brother looks just like him.
