CT Research Trip: Pine Grove Cemetery

During our first day of researching our Brady family roots in Ct my cousin & I stayed indoors. It was a rainy autumn day and we limited ourselves to uncovering facts in the Ansonia Library, the Derby Historical Society & the Ansonia City Hall. The second day was dry and we headed to cemeteries.

Pine Grove Cemetery
15 Church Street, Ansonia CT

We found two members of the family of Owen Brady & Mary McGovern. Their daughter, Agnes V Brady Renker, was buried with her husband. Their grandson, Eugene W Brady, and his wife were there also.  

Husband: George P.; 1898 – 1970
Wife: Agnes V.; 1899 – 1978

Eugene W. Sr.; 1 September 1923 – 15 November 1981
Ruth B.; 8 January 1928 – 27 August 2009

We found Agnes & George first. My cousin had called ahead and knew which plot to look in. We did not know where to find Eugene & Ruth and the office was closed. However, we were able to find the supervisor of the cemetery and he took us right to the tombstone we needed. It was a beautifully tended cemetery.

  1. Looks like you had a glorious day for your "field work" outdoors, Colleen! Glad you found what you were looking for, too, especially if it was a large cemetery. Nice to have a working partner from the family as well. Teamwork always makes it more enjoyable.

    1. Jacqi, it was much more fun having a cousin to share the day!
