    Notes 
    • It is believed that great great grandfather Bartholomew helped to build the Concord State house out of granite. I hope to go to Concord, NH. He was a stone cutter and quarryman. His naturalization papers show that he lived in Concord.
    • (Research):Excerpts from H. Hobart Holly research report to Martha Reardon dated, August 11, 1990:

      (1) Around 1880, Bartolomew Reardon started giving his name as Bartholomew W. Reardon.

      (2) There is no record of Bartholomew Reardon having served in the Civil War from Massachusetts, nor was he a member of the Paul J. Revere Post, G. A. R. in Quincy.

      (3) Unable to find record of the marriage of Bartholmew and Catherine in Massachusetts circa 1868. Suspects marriage was in Concord, NH, where Reardon may have lived before coming to Quincy. The difference in ages suggests that it may have been his second marriage.

      (4) From his age, it would be easy to assume that Bartholmew Reardon or Rierdon came from Ireland in the potato famine migration. There is however the strong possibility that as a skilled stonecutter he came later to practice his trade.

      (5) He was a man of means when he came to Quincy in 1867.

      (6) His naturalization record would give the date of his oming to this country.
