    Thank you for the lovely article. My grandmother, Harriet Lyons is buried in the cemetery there. I was able to visit the church and cemetery in the late 1980’s with relatives who live in Lewisburg. I am from Atlanta, but my mother talked about Centralia often, since she was originally from Mount Carmel. I have lived a very different life from my relatives in Pa, so I am always fascinated by Pa history.

    Michael Cavalla: The records would have been transferred to a nearby Parish when it was closed. From my searching, Columbia County is in the Diocese of Harrisburg. I would call the Diocesan office to inquire about where St. Ignatius’ records were transferred to.

  4. My great grandfather Christopher Rooney was the superintendent of the mines in the middle to late 1800’s. Annie Purcell was his wife, and they had 13 children. Most of his sons worked the mines at times. The Rooneys has a long history in Centralia.
