Sunday's Obituary - Robert Creeden, Clinton County, Ohio
Died. -- In Wilmington, on March 2, 1889, Robert, Infant son of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Creeden, aged six months, three weeks and two days. Funeral services took place on Sunday, at St. Columbkille Catholic Church. Interment in Sugar Grove cemetery.
This obituary was published in the Wilmington, OH Clinton County Democrat on March 2, 1889. Digital images of the paper are available on FindMyPast.com.
Although the obituary says Robert's father is J.J. Creeden, the Ohio Births and Christening index on Ancestry.com lists his parents as Patrick J. Creedon and Mary Clark. An entry on FindAGrave has Robert's date of birth as 9/1888 and his date of death as 3/1/1889. It says that his plot in Sugar Grove cemetery was a charity plot.
I don't know if there is a relationship between this family and my Clinton County Creedens, but both my grandfather and father were named Robert. My Creeden family also attended St. Columbkille Church, so it's probable that the two families knew each other.
