Bill: John Fleming died in 1917 and I do have his death certificate. Thanks for your time and trouble. I do have an LDS church in my little town and have spent bundles going through film of various Catholic churches in Chicago during the time my people arrived. I think I have pretty much done everything I can. I can trace John back to 1880 for sure in Chicago. That maybe what I will have to be satisfied with. I don't know for sure what County in Ireland he came from. His father was James Fleming and according to his death certificate he was married to a 'Daly' ..first name not known. I don't even know what county he is from. I was just hoping you very knowledgeable people could look through all this and tell me I have exhausted all my options., or better yet, is there another one I haven't thought of. Thanks again Bill for your input. > Date: Wed, 12 Mar 2008 21:18:49 -0500> From: > To: > Subject: Re: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Catholic Churches....death records> > Sarah,> > I checked the cyberdrive site for pre-1916 deaths: It shows:> FLEMING, JOHN 03/10/1900CHICAGO 71 YRU00005285COOK > > > > You can contact the County Clerk's Office.
