The only pre 1905 Catholic church in the area which was predominately Irish
was Nativity at 37th and Union according to a historic map of parishes
that I have. All churches closer to 31st and Normal catered to Polish,
German, Bohemian residents. Nativity parish dates from 1868.

Is there someone who would know what "Irish" Catholic parish would have
served the area around 31st St. and Normal before St. David's, which opened
in 1905?
I'm trying to check on several related families from around 1880 till St.
David's started
