Dear Carole,
There is a Mount Hope Cemetery on the far south side, 115th St., but in
the late 1800's there might have been a church with that name. Mount Hope
started up in the 1870's so perhaps that is where they are buried. It is a
long, long way from 212 Newberry.
You might want to contact the Archdiocese of Chicago at Archdiocese of
Chicago's Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Archives & Records Center
711 West Monroe
Chicago, Illinois 60661

212 Newberry now would be in Greektown, but the city revamped the
numbering system and so that address might have been somewhere else in 1880.
It might not have been too far away from the current address, however. That
address is just west of downtown now. Ward boundaries shift all the
time, so I have no idea where that might have been. The 8th Ward is now on
the southeast side of the city.
I hope some of this helps.
