    Notes 
    • (Medical):A chronic inflammation of the kidney, in which there is degeneration of the renal epithelium, connective tissue changes in the stroma, permanent changes in the glomeruli, and an exudation from the blood-vessels. This is mostly a disease of early and middle life, though no age is exempt. Males are more often affected than females, the greater exposure, mode of life, and drink habits of the former, no doubt, accounting for the difference in the two sexes. It may follow the acute nephritis of cold, scarlet fever, or pregnancy, or chronic congestion of the kidney, though usually it begins insidiously and seemingly independent of any acute disease. Indulgence in alcoholic and malt beverages is no doubt responsible for the disease, the frequency with which it appears in beer-drinkers being evidence. Malaria is regarded by many authors as being a cause of chronic nephritis. Workmen exposed to cold and damp, and who live in damp, poorly ventilated apartments, are subject to Bright's disease.Tuberculosis, syphilis, and suppurative diseases are also associated with chronic nephritis. In all probability, toxins either from a perverted metabolism or introduced from without, so influence the nutrition of the kidney as to give rise to chronic diffuse nephritis. [5]

    • On 27 October 1897, 31 year-old, Luke Cashman married 18 year-old Mary F. McKenna. Mary's sister, Margaret, was a witness along with Maurice Ryan. The ceremony was performed by the Right Rev. Alexius Edelbrock, O. S. B., a German priest and Abbot of St. Anselm's Priory.
      ====================================================================
      Alexius Edelbrock, the German Catholic priest that married Luke and Mary, after leaving Minnesota in 1889, found a patron in Archbishop Corrigan of New York, who gave him land for a parish that could become a monastic foundation with the provision that Saint John's Abbey also accept responsibility for a Catholic mission to the Bahama Islands. The new abbot, Bernard, wanted nothing to do with responsibility for the Bahamas but he was generous in supporting his predecessor and supplying priests for the new parish, St. Anselm's, which would be swallowed up in the South Bronx in Alexius's lifetime. There Alexius proceeded to build a cavernous four story rectory large enough to serve as the residence for a new monastic community and planned a large church in the Byzantine style. Only the basement of the church was built before his death in 1908. The church was completed in 1916 and is cited in the November 5, 2009 New York Review of Books as "one of the finest examples of the medieval revival in America" (43). Alexius would not be surprised at the compliment. He always thought big.
