Father William Matthew Murtaugh 1860-1930 served the church community in Sheffield, Illinois for 42 years. He was ordained by the Peoria bishop and said his first mass at his family church in Chatsworth, IL. Rev. Murtaugh died while serving in Sheffield, Bureau County, IL. We are trying to locate his burial location in the area. Can anyone give assistance to this effort? We have located his family gravesite in Chatsworth which includes his father Owen, stepmother Alice, as well as brother and sister and in-laws the Garrity family.
