It's funny you should mention this. A great many of my relatives are buried in Mt. Saint Mary's, (aka: Black Stump).
The names you mention are all pretty much familiar to me. I've written to the staff at MSMs many times over the years & they've been very kind by giving me a list of anyone buried there with the name Delahanty. I haven't come across too many "Lillies", so an odd name definitely sticks in one's memory.
On my last trip to MSM (to photograph the headstone on my family's plot), I was walking around the immediate area & came across some tablet fragments piled rather unceremoniously behind another headstone. I fliped them over &, to my utter amazement, it mentioned yet another Delahanty. This time, according to the engraving, it was erected by PATRICK DELAHANTY in loving memory of his wife MARY ______ (Sorry, I cannot remember her last name. I did write it all down for my files.) Oddly enough, it also mentioned his 2nd wife, another MARY. The inscription stated where in Ireland the 1st MARY originated.
I don't know when I'll be coming back to the US. When I do I'll be able to fill in all of the blanks. Maybe I'll have some information about your family!
All the Best,
