Part 679d – Brunhammer Doherty Genealogy – 1866 Birth and Baptism – Great-Grandaunt Helen Doherty, Wilmington, Delaware

09 May 2012

Good Day,

Now isn’t genealogy amusing? Not amusing in a “snide” or “sarcastic” way, but in a sort of “fun” and “challenging” type of way.

My search of the St. Peter’s Church Registers of Wilmington, Delaware now has produced the documentation of the 11th Doherty sibling – great-grandaunt Helen Doherty. This is the mystery Doherty. All-things-being-equal, great-grandaunt Helen appears to have been gg-grandparents Philip and Margaret Doherty’s second child and the first of eight daughters.

Great-Grandaunt Margaret was born, in Wilmington, Delaware, on 25 March 1866. She was baptized at St. Peter’s Church 1 April 1866 when she was just seven days old.


The above inserted image is the actual page of the Church Register. I downloaded it from Item 4 of the microfilm FHL [1787748].

Here is my attempt at transcribing the Latin script.

1866

April

“ (1st) Baptizavi Helenam filiam Phillippi Doherty et
Margareta __ natum 25th Ult Sponsores
Daniele Doherty et Catharina McGonigle
P.R. O’Brien

And my translation -

1866

April

"(1st) Baptized Helen, daughter of Phillipp Doherty
and Margaret, born 25th last
Sponsors Daniel Doherty and Catherine McGonigle
P.R. O'Brien

And now on to the next two sisters.

Enjoy,

Jim
