Rev. John J. Power
« on: February 17, 2014, 04:31:26 PM »
Looking to find the Church Rev. John J. Power served in ...  looking to confirm a marriage he preformed in Worcester on 10 September 1865 - I'm looking for the marriage record  of (Eleanor/Ellen Quinn Maher) and her second husband (Bernard Carney/Kearney).   Can anyone help me???   

Thanks,
Jack

Not sure if this will help, but my research shows he was a Catholic priest - you probably already knew that  :)

Hello. I am currently doing research on the Diocese of Worcester and know that Rev. John J Power was the founding priest of two of Worcester's parishes, the former Saint Anne (1856-1970) which was on Eastern Ave, and what is now the Cathedral of Saint Paul (1869) on Chatham and High Streets. According to your post, the marriage would have likely taken place at Saint Anne. In the 1960's Saint Anne's was merged with Our Lady of Mount Carmel and that is likely where the records are kept.
Here is the contact information for Our Lady of Mount Carmel-St. Ann Parish:  http://www.mtcarmel.ws/index.cfm?load=page&page=150

If you want the official marriage certificate you might also want to contact Worcester's City Clerk: http://www.worcesterma.gov/city-clerk

Hope this helps.

Thanks .. had contacted the Church they said no records there .. I was told the records may be at St. Paul's ...I wrote to them and am waiting on a reply.... I live in Worcester and a lot of my Irish relations were members off St Anne's ... would love to find where the records are stored.
