Part 731h – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1897 Baptism Grandmother Hannah Myrtle Holmes – Tamaqua, Schuylkill, Pennsylvania

11 July 2012

Good Day,

The search and research into the genealogy of a family line never stops… and if one is addicted to the exploration and investigation, as I am, I am always looking for that next piece of critical and priceless documentation.

Today I have decided to follow Andy’s grandmother Hannah Myrtle (née Holmes) Doherty’s genealogy and Family Line. I immediately discovered her 1897 Baptism Registration as recorded at the Calvary Episcopal Church in Tamaqua, Schuylkill, Pennsylvania. The inserted image to the left is that of Calvary Episcopal Church.

Here is the image of the 1897 Baptism Registrations as downloaded from the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Historic Pennsylvania Church and Two Records, Reel: 505, database as found on It is image 87 of 162.

My transcription –


DATE – 1897 April 24
PLACE – Home
CHRISTIAN NAME – Hannah Myrtle
SURNAME – Holmes
SPOINSORS – The Parents
MINISTER – F.C. Lauderburn

Even though, according to the Baptisms Register grandmother Hannah Myrtle was baptized at “Home” the family church appears to have been the Calvary Episcopal Church in Tamaqua. Just wait to see what I have found.
