Hello Robert:

Found a few tidbits for you on Father Phelan:

History of Nevada 1881. Page 205 Chapter XXVIL The Roman Cathloic Church..

The Rev. Fther Monteverde, now of Eureka, established in 1864, St. Augustin's Church in Austin, now in charge of the Rev. Father Joseph Phelan, and afterwards built a church at Hamilton.

Same book page 205....Early Clergymen.
The Rev. Joseph Phelan at Austin.

St Augustine Catholic Church built 1866 Austin per the Nevada Historical Marker 67.

Sorry I don't have more for you.
