CHILDREN OF J. & A. CONOLY

The limestone monument in the St. Ambrose Catholic Church Cemetery at Seymour, Indiana, for the wife and children of James Conoly, is carved to look like a country church.  On the front of the church above the doorway, is carved, “MY WIFE”.  Three of the gothic windows on one side of the church have the inscription for three Conoly children who died.  On the back of the building is a scroll that lists the name, birth, and death dates for Anna, along with an epitaph that is now obscured and unreadable because it is so weathered.
