    St. Columbkille Catholic Church Cemetery, Dodge County, WI. This is where Christy, his wife Ann Bergenhaun Dempsey, their 5 year old son Connor and their son Daniel are buried next to each other per church cemetery list. Christy & Daniel have no tombstone. It is believed that Christy is buried in the same plot with Ann which is common practice in this area. There are tombstones for Ann and Connor age 5. Ann's marker reads "Ann, wife of Christopher Dempsey, born 1817, died 1897". Photo taken by Rita Jones on WI Trip 2009.

    The Christy Dempsey farm today is a 250 acre dairy farm owned by the Patey's (no relation) as shown in this photo. The Patey's have about 50 Guernsey cows. Most of the land is planted in corn and alfalfa to feed the cows. The milk is so rich it is used to make butter rather than for drinking. Photo was taken by Rita Jones on WI Trip 2009.
