HOLY SEPULCHRE CEMETERY, 
Burlington, Ontario




McTAGUE Michael
Born 1822, Leitrim, Ireland
Died November 2nd, 1892, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Age 70

CLARK Mary
(wife of Michael McTague)
Born 1834, Sligo, Ireland
Died February 22nd, 1908, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Age 74

Notes: From Catherine...All of their children (including Gilbert, in photo) were born in Ontario, Canada, with their first child being born in 1923.
It is my guess that they came separately, possibly with their own families and met each other in Canada....but that is only my guess
I found it interesting that they used Mary's maiden name on the gravestone.

EDITOR'S NOTE: It is not too unusual that the maiden name is used, though most often it will be as an addition such as Nee.... as in Nee Clark if it were that way above. I have found many gravestones listing the wife's maiden names, often at the end on the inscription. Something to ponder when organising a gravestone, it sure does help historians.
