The Teresa Frain and Elmer Pittman Family in the St Joseph Church Records, South Bend, Indiana

Teresa Frain was the daughter of John Frain and Catherine Holden, who were close friends of my second great grandparents Martin Brennan and Catherine Corcoran and may have travelled with them by train from New York.

Omissions: There was a baptismal record for a Johannam on 3/5/1899 (later confirmed 6/10/1962 John Howard Pittman at St Mathew's Cathedral in South Bend) that is not included in this Frain Church record compilation because his parents were listed as Joseph Pittman (not Dennis or Dionysis) and Theresia Frain.

This is a work in progress!
