Notes for GEORGE C. G. HENNESSEY (SIR):

From: Andy Hennessey

Sent: Monday, September 22, 2003 10:41 PM

To: Sonny Coffin

Subject: A little more Hennessey history!

Hi Sonny!

I was reading the Hennessey Funeral Home history you have on your website and thought it was great. By the way did you know another Hennessey has his own funeral home too?

In addition the Michael's sons, Andy and Frank, and his daughter, Gert, getting involved in the funeral profession, his son, Sir George C. G. Hennessey, opened a funeral home in Portland, Oregon. The Hennessey, Goetsch, & McGee Funeral Home still operates today at 210 NW 17th Street, Portland, Oregon 97209 (503-221-1292)

Sir George Hennessey was knighted by the Pope as a Knight Commander of the Holy Sepulcher for his work for Bishop Francis Kelley (another Islander) and the "Chapel Cars." Bishop Kelley was in charge of the Catholic Church Extension Society.

Many of the places that the Catholic Church Extension Society visited were too small or too poor to provide adequate religious service to its people. The CCES provided several means of spreading Catholicism to poor and desolate parts of the United States. The most popular way was through the use of Chapel Cars: St. Anthony, St. Peter, and St. Paul. These cars operated from 1907 until into the 1930's.

The itineraries of these chapel cars took them mainly to the South, West, and Northwest of the United States. Chapel cars would stop in various towns and hamlets for days at a time. Novelty drew many people to these chapel cars, but the Catholic population sought to receive proper spiritual guidance. Visitations by the cars often helped spur the construction of chapels to continue servicing the community. The collection about the CCES Chapel Cars includes extensive correspondence from George Hennessey, who ran the chapel cars.

After he finished this "missionary" work for the church, he settled in Portland and opened a funeral home in partnership. Sir George is buried in our local Peoples Cemetery with his parents and a number of brothers and sisters.

************************************************************************** *******************************************

"Chapel Cars" --

My understanding is that Sir George Hennessey travelled west across the US to various places and organized the people in the communities to prepare for a visit by The Bishop -- Bishop Kelly. Sir George was related to him.

Sir George would arrive before hand and organize a choir to sing and arrange for a place to have the Mass said, etc. Upon the arrival of the bishop all would be ready. I'm not sure, but I think the Bishop would arrive by train - in the "chapel car". I found the words used in Sir George's obituary.

He would be my granduncle. Sir George was born in Dec. of 1877 and I would think he would be doing this work about the turn of the century. He died in Portland, Oregon, in Feb. of 1933 and was an undertaker (as was his father and brothers here in PEI) in a partnership in Portland at the time of his death. His remains were shipped home and he is buried here in Charlottetown, PEI, Canada, with his parents.

This is about all I know of the story and I have not found a story in the local newspapers around 1925 about his being knighting by the Pope.

Catholic Church Extension Society Records

CCES Collection at Loyola

Loyola University Archives has in its collection the Catholic Church Extension Society (CCES) files from its inception up to 1962. These files include correspondence between CCES and home mission bishops. The Loyola University Archives maintains an extensive collection of CCES photographs dated from 1908 to 1980. The collection also includes newspaper clippings, an almost complete set of back issues of Extension Magazine, and more.

CCES Home Missions

The Catholic Church Extension Society (CCES) was established on 18 October 1905 by Father Frances C. Kelley (who would later become Bishop of Oklahoma City) in order to serve the needs of the United States home missions. These were areas in the United States that lacked the necessary resources for the operations of the church. The CCES helps to build and furnish churches, assists in funding the education of seminarians, and subsidizes the income of missionary priests. The CCES assists dioceses in the United States (especially the Southern and Western states) including Alaska and Hawaii as well as Puerto Rico and the Philippines until it achieved independence.

Archbishop William D. O'Brien, auxiliary bishop of Chicago, was president of CCES for nearly forty years, the majority of the period covered in these files. O'Brien personally conducted nearly all of the correspondence between the CCES and the missionary bishops. Since O'Brien was a close friend with many (if not most) of these bishops, the correspondence contains a lot of personal chit-chat, gossip, joking, as well as CCES business.

The correspondence files of the CCES contains appeals for funding, records of financial transactions, arranging of meetings, newspaper clippings and many other miscellaneous items. Newspaper articles and letters appealing for funding often contain detailed description of the relevant mission area, its people and their living conditions, etc. There are also several newspaper articles with biographical sketches of the home mission bishops-- especially articles on newly appointed bishops, deceased bishops, and bishops celebrating their jubilee (50th year in the priesthood or 25th year as a bishop).

CCES Chapel Cars

Many of the places that the Catholic Church Extension Society visited were too small or too poor to provide adequate religious service to its people. The CCES provided several means of spreading Catholicism to poor and desolate parts of the United States. The most popular way was through the use of Chapel Cars St. Anthony, St. Peter, and St. Paul. These cars operated from 1907 until into the 1930's.

The itineraries of these chapel cars took them mainly to the South, West, and Northwest. Chapel cars would stop in various towns and hamlets for days at a time. Novelty drew many people to these chapel cars, but the Catholic population sought to receive proper spiritual guidance. Visitations by the cars often helped spur the construction of chapels to continue servicing the community.

The collection for the CCES Chapel Cars includes extensive correspondence from George Hennessey, who ran the chapel cars. There are also many chaplain reports that describe the different towns that the chapel cars visited. The photograph collection has over one hundred pictures showing the three chapel cars in service throughout the United States. The chapel car photographs are part of a sub-section of the CCES Photographic Collection entitled "Transportation." This sub-section also has photographs of chapel boats, a mission yacht, motor chapels (chapel automobiles), and a chapel wagon.

CCES in the United States Protectorates and Territories

Along with mission work on the home front, the Catholic Church Extension Society also provided funding and services abroad. The correspondence, like the home front correspondence, deals mainly with appeals for support. The photo section has over 1200 photographs of the Philippines prior to it's independence. Most of these photos are of newly created churches or of school children receiving instruction from priests and nuns. They could be found in the pages of Extension Magazine and used with pleas for funding.

But the Philippines was not the only overseas mission to receive support from CCES. Other locales include Puerto Rico, Guam, Samoa, Mariana Islands, Canal Zone (Panama), Okinawa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The work done in Alaska and Hawaii before statehood has been incorporated into the home mission work.

Notes for ANDREW AUSTIN HENNESSEY:

Story from Aunt Dot ( Andrew's daughter)

Aunt Dot tells me that a black couple lived up the lane between the A. A. Hennessey Funeral Home (78 Kent St.) and Scantlbury's home. They were Harry (Pomp) & Susie Bailey. They lived in a little shack behind what use to be the Owen's property (Islander Motor Lodge stands there now). Pomp's job was to care for the horses that pulled the funeral hearse which were housed in a barn on Pownal Street beside the Kirk of St. James. Pomp had to care for the horses as well as polish the harness and all its silver hardware.

Aunt Dot mentioned a Dr. Seaman but I'm not sure of the relation to the above story unless he owed the property where Pomp & Susie lived.

Notes for BERT HORACE STRANG:

Received Feb. 1, 2005 from John Tate ( john.tate@paytontate.com )

Andy,

Sorry to trouble you; but I wonder if you could help us out?

We have (for some years!) been trying to confirm whether or not a lady name Mildred M STRANG (nee BARKER) left surviving issue. This is in connection with an estate administration.

Mildred died in 1971 in the USA; but we know that she had been married to one Bert(ie) Horace STRANG, who himself died in PEI Canada, in 1974. We also know that Bert left his estate to one F Eleanor HENNESSEY - who appears on your own family listing, at http://www.islandregister.com/hennessey1.html.

I therefore wonder if you are able to advise whether you were involved with the research regarding this part of the family; and if so, whether you have any knowledge of Bert Strang's initial marriage to Mildred, and whether there were any issue of same. I do of course appreciate that you are probably more interested in the HENNESSEY line than the STRANG family - but you never know!

Any information at all would be very helpful; and would hopefully allow us to close this file, that we have had open since 1997!!

Thank you, in anticipation.

Regards,

John Tate ( john.tate@paytontate.com )

I was coming back from Fredricton yesterday and watched to see if there were any Strangs along that road to the bridge. There is a farm, Robert Strang and Son's near Melrose. I'm sure they are related to Birt but probably are nephews. I keep on thinking that he was married and his wife had some type of breakdown and was in a home of some sort or another.
