Hi William,
Clement and John came to Malone Ny from Ireland with the rest of their family, parents Andrew McDermott and Rosa (Rosannah Malone), and their sisters. I still don't know who all the family members were. I have been to Malone NY a couple of times with my son and found the graves. Clement is one that is buried there in St. Joseph Cemetery.
John McDermott died Jan. 20, 1923 at Ottawa Canada. There was a large obit in the Ottawa Journal Mon. Jan. 22, 1923 which said that John was 98 years old and he would have been 99 in Aug. of that year. The obit says he died of a cold, but the death certificate says he died of stomach cancer. He had fought in four wars, the Crimea, Egypt, U.S. Civil war for the union side and also Canada, the Riel Rebellion. Mary Ann Bamford McDermott died Oct. 16, 1918 at Ottawa. Margaret
