Cronin DE-704 - History

Served as Boatswain’s Mate on board the U.S.S. Metacomet, during action against rebel forts and gunboats with the ram Tennessee in Mobile Bay, 5 August 1864. Despite damage to his ship and the loss of several men on board as enemy fire raked her decks, Murphy performed his duties with skill and courage throughout a furious two-hour battle which resulted in the surrender of the rebel ram Tennessee and in damaging and destruction of batteries at Fort Morgan.

Born in Waterford, Ireland, on January 15, 1823, Patrick Murphy came to Erie in 1842 when he enlisted as part of the first crew of the U.S.S. Michigan. He claimed to have raised the flag when the ship was commissioned, and served on that vessel until, and again after, the Civil War. His own personal history is a history of the Michigan’s first four decades.

Murphy was serving as the Gun Captain during the firing of a ceremonial salute in honor of Vice-President Millard Fillmore in August, 1849. The gun discharged prematurely, killing the two boatswain’s mates serving the gun and wounding Murphy when the vent stopper blew out. At the beginning of the Civil War, Patrick Murphy served in Admiral David Porter’s fleet. He later joined former Michigan officer James Jouett on U.S.S. Metacomet.

Returning to Erie after the War, he reenlisted on Michigan, and remained there until he retired in 1885. Those years serving as a pilot earned him the respect of Great Lakes mariners along with his crewmates, as his knowledge of the lakes and weather was unmatched.

Like so many of Michigan’s crew, Murphy found his heart and made his home in Erie. He married Miss Bridget Calligee in 1845, and they had two sons, James and William. He died on December 1, 1896, and rests in Trinity Cemetery. He has no further descendants. The Medal of Honor marker at his gravesite was researched and application facilitated by the Erie Maritime Museum and Erie Diocesan Cemeteries. The Museum hosted the formal ceremonies dedicating the marker on November 8, 2009, as pictured here.

On board the U.S.S. Cayuga during the capture of Forts St. Philip and Jackson and the taking of New Orleans, 24 and 25 April 1862. As his ship led the advance column toward the barrier and both forts opened fire simultaneously, striking the vessel from stem to stern, Young calmly manned a Parrot gun throughout the action in which attempts by three rebel steamers to butt and board were thwarted and the ships driven off or captured. Eleven gunboats were successfully engaged and garrisons forced to surrender. During the battle, the Cayuga sustained 46 hits.

William Young began his career enlisting on “Old Ironsides”, the U.S.S. Constitution, in 1852 at the age of 17. He saw service on a number of vessels prior to the Civil War, most notably on U.S.S. Portsmouth, cruising off the coast of Africa to suppress traffic in the slave trade. On 21 September 1859 Portsmouth seized the slave ship Emily. By the time he served on Cayuga, he had achieved the rating of Boatswain’s Mate.

His final years were served on the Navy’s first Iron Steamer, U.S.S. Michigan, 1872󈠜, as Bugler. Never married, he retired to the Erie Soldiers & Sailors Home, where he died on December 26, 1878, at age 42. His funeral was attended by fellow Civil War veterans, Post 67, G.A.R. and he was buried at Erie Cemetery, with the headstone-style marker in this picture provided by the U.S. Navy.

For years Young’s gravesite was listed as “unknown” in official publications. In 2010, the Erie Maritime Museum and the Erie Cemetery researched, then facilitated the formal request to the Department of Veterans Affairs for a new grave marker for William Young. Time has taken its toll on his marker, and Young’s Medal of Honor was not indicated on the first stone. This application is currently suspended. The reason given is a moratorium on providing markers for veterans from this era made by parties other than family.

On board the U.S.S. Richmond in action at Mobile Bay on 5 August 1864. Cool and vigilant at his station throughout the prolonged action, Cronin watched for signals and skillfully steered the ship as she trained her guns on Fort Morgan and on ships of the Confederacy despite extremely heavy return fire. He participated in the actions at Forts Jackson and St. Philip, with the Chalmette batteries, at the surrender of New Orleans, and in the attacks on batteries below Vicksburg.

Cornelius Cronin was born 10 March 1838 in Detroit, Michigan, (also said to be born in Ireland), and enlisted in the Navy 17 September 1858. He served almost fifty years. During the Civil War, he was one of 31 men awarded the Medal of Honor while serving on U.S.S. Richmond. Following the Civil War, he served on Michigan and a number of other vessels until transferred to the Retired List 16 August 1898. Since this official retirement came during the Spanish-American War, he continued to serve on Vermont. He later served on Columbia, and at the New York Navy Yard until 3 February 1908, when he was relieved of active duty.

While on Michigan in Erie, (1866�), he was ordered by Commander James H. Gillis to take charge of new recruits in Buffalo, New York, and return to Erie with them.

Precursors to the TV Dinner

World War II accelerated the use of frozen meals. In 1944, Maxson Food Systems Inc. used Birdseye’s flash-freezing technology to create frozen pre-packaged dinners to be sold exclusively to military and civilian air carriers. The meals, called “Strato-Plates” or "Sky Plates," consisted of a partitioned serving of meat, a vegetable and a potato, reheated aboard the planes in Maxson “Whirlwind Electric Ovens,” a precursor to the convection oven. Founder W.L. Maxson planned to expand his company&aposs Strato-Plates to a wider consumer market, but died before the plan took off.

In 1947, entrepreneur Jack Fisher placed pre-frozen meals in aluminum trays and called them 𠇏ridgi-Dinners.” Fisher marketed the meals exclusively to bars and taverns looking for a way to feed hungry patrons without hiring cooks. Though inching closer to the American consumer, the dinners remained outside the home.

The Wearing of the Green : A History of St. Patrick's Day

The full history of St. Patrick's day is captured here for the first time in The Wearing of the Green.

Illustrated with photos, the book spans the medieval origins, steeped in folklore and myth, through its turbulent and troubled times when it acted as fuel for fierce political argument, and tells the fascinating story of how the celebration of 17th March was transformed from a stuffy dinner for Ireland's elite to one of the world's most public festivals.

Looking at more general Irish traditions and Irish communities throughout the world, Mike Cronin and Daryl Adair follow the history of this widely celebrated event, examining how the day has been exploited both politically and commercially, and they explore the shared heritage of the Irish through the development of this unique patriotic holiday.

Highly informative for students of history, cultural studies and sociology, and an absolute delight for anyone interested in the fascinating and unique culture of Ireland.

Outcomes of implants and restorations placed in general dental practices: a retrospective study by the Practitioners Engaged in Applied Research and Learning (PEARL) Network

Objectives: The authors conducted a study to determine the types, outcomes, risk factors and esthetic assessment of implants and their restorations placed in the general practices of a practice-based research network.

Methods: All patients who visited network practices three to five years previously and underwent placement of an implant and restoration within the practice were invited to enroll. Practitioner-investigators (P-Is) recorded the status of the implant and restoration, characteristics of the implant site and restoration, presence of peri-implant pathology and an esthetic assessment by the P-I and patient. The P-Is classified implants as failures if the original implant was missing or had been replaced, the implant was mobile or elicited pain on percussion, there was overt clinical or radiographic evidence of pathology or excessive bone loss (> 0.2 millimeter per year after an initial bone loss of 2 mm). They classified restorations as failures if they had been replaced or if there was abutment or restoration fracture.

Results: The authors enrolled 922 implants and patients from 87 practices, with a mean (standard deviation) follow-up of 4.2 (0.6) years. Of the 920 implants for which complete data records were available, 64 (7.0 percent) were classified as failures when excessive bone loss was excluded from the analysis. When excessive bone loss was included, 172 implants (18.7 percent) were classified as failures. According to the results of univariate analysis, a history of severe periodontitis, sites with preexisting inflammation or type IV bone, cases of immediate implant placement and placement in the incisor or canine region were associated with implant failure. According to the results of multivariate analysis, sites with preexisting inflammation (odds ratio [OR] = 2.17 95 percent confidence interval [CI], 1.41-3.34]) or type IV bone (OR = 1.99 95 percent CI, 1.12-3.55) were associated with a greater risk of implant failure. Of the 908 surviving implants, 20 (2.2 percent) had restorations replaced or judged as needing to be replaced. The majority of P-Is and patients were satisfied with the esthetic outcomes for both the implant and restoration.

Conclusions: These results suggest that implant survival and success rates in general dental practices may be lower than those reported in studies conducted in academic or specialty settings.

Practical implications: The results of this study, generated in the private general practice setting, add to the evidence base to facilitate implant treatment planning.

Keywords: Implant therapy implant treatment outcomes practice-based research.

Queen of Arcane Databases

I love finding databases that are little known. Such as United States, Union Provost Marshal Files of Individual Civilians, 1861-1866 found at FamilySearch.

While browsing that database I found the following letter written by P. S. Bush (Philip S. Bush) of Covington, Kentucky in regards to his son-in-law, Jabez Percival:

Covington Ky Oct 9th 1862

Dr Sir, Mr Jabez Percival, my son in law lives with me, he has been thrown out of business by the selling of his stock of hardware and by Danl Mooar with whom he was in partnership having no interest but a portion of the profits. He has not to my knowledge $100 of property to save his watch, he has been assessed $25 for military purposes, I ask that the amount may be reduced to $10 and I will see it paid by tomorrow evening.

Jabez Percival was my great-great grandfather's (John S Percival, Jr) brother. I love finds like this! Don't forget to click on the image to see a larger scale image.
