PATRICK SAVAGE was born abt 1811 and died 06 Feb 1868 at age 57.  He married Mary.  She was born abt 1811 and died 18 Aug 1869 at age 58. Both Patrick and Mary are buried at St. Mary's Cemetery, Clinton, Clinton County, IA.  They immigrated to  Clinton Co., IA, in 1851-1852 from Edendariff, County Down, Northern Ireland

2-1 Thomas SAVAGE (possibly David Thomas) was born 02 Jun 1842, (or 31 May 1841 - as written on death certificate) at Edendariff, County Down, Northern Ireland.  He immigrated to  Clinton Co., IA, in 1851-1852, at approx. age of 10.  Thomas died 16 Aug 1908 at  Beremann Township, Jo Daviess County, IL.  Lived in IL 25 years.  He is buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, Stockton, Jo Daviess Co., IL.  He died of dysentery of 3 days duration.  Thomas was married 29 Jan 1871 to Mary Anne HANNA, of Clinton, Clinton Co., Iowa.  She was born 1855, in Massachusetts and died in 1935.  She is also buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, Stockton, Jo Daviess Co., IL.

Mary's parents were William and Nancy HANNA, both born in Ireland. She had the following siblings: John HANNA, b. abt 1846, England; William HANNA, b. abt 1853, Massachusetts; James HANNA, b. abt 1857, Iowa; and Catherine HANNA, b. abt 1859, Iowa

2-2 Mary H. SAVAGE was born  08 Oct 1843 in Ireland and died 09 Apr 1876.  She is buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, Clinton, Clinton Co., IA.  Mary was married 24 Jan 1961 to James Shepard in Clinton, Clinton Co., IA.  They had the following children:

Joseph W. Shepard, b. 25 Nov 1861, d. 01 Jun 1886, listed on 1880 census as a machinist    

Mary Shepard, b. abt 1864   

Ella Shepard, b. 13 Sept 1865, d. 05 Aug 1892; md. John F. Maloney, b. 06 Dec 1858, d. 12 Jun 1905 

John Shepard, b. abt 1867   James T. Shepard, b. abt 1868, d. abt 1934, burial St. Mary's Cemetery, Clinton, Clinton Co., IA       (became a professional musician in later life)   

James Shepard of Clinton, Clinton Co., IA, is listed on 1880 census for there as having a wife named Ellen, b. abt 1844, with the above children listed under their names as well as the following:   Elizabeth, b. 1878 Gertrude, b. Mar 1880 John Clark, b. abt 1867, stepson Peter Clark, b. abt 1873, stepson this family in 1880 is listed as living on the south side of 7th Ave., Clinton also found them listed in the various city directories at the same address on the 1900 census, James Shepard and Ellen are listed as being married for 37 years, and both emigrating in about 1860, so this is where some discrepancy comes in.  One of my "distant" cousins sent a listing of the Shepards buried at St. Mary's and James and Mary Savage Shepard are listed on the same large family stone with the addition of Frank (who died in 1888, at age 2 yrs.) and Hannah T., who died in 1880 at age 6 months.  And there is yet one other daughter listed for the cemetery in the same plot - Theresa, b. 25 Oct 1886, d. 17 May 1899.

2-3  Ellen SAVAGE was born abt 1846 and died 02 Jan 1873 at age 27.  She was married to Andrew KELLY.
