    • I See By the Hawk-Eye That

      [...] Funeral services for Peter Mullahy will be held at St. Paul's Catholic church at 9 o'clock Saturday morning [May 30, 1931]. The cortege will leave the Burnett-Wallen funeral home at 8:45. The body will be brought here this afternoon.
    Alt. Burial 
    • I am not convinced that Peter Mullahy Jr. is buried at Aspen Grove Cemetery. The cemetery books list only Peter Sr., and the World Connect link that stated he was buried at Aspen Grove may have confused the Peter Mullahys. As Eva is at Kossuth cemetery, it will be interesting when or if more records of Kossuth go online to see if Peter Jr. is possibly buried there with her.
