Peter McConomy also devoted a lot of his time to the Catholic church, becoming a prominent member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Lancaster. Family legend has it that he laid out the "new" cemetery of St Mary's church, and planted the trees that lined the avenue leading to the family burial plot there.
Peter McConomy's shoe store was located on West King Street in Lancaster, very near the store owned by Charles Gillespie. Both men are listed as members of the same societies and committees and both served on the Building Committee for the "new" St. Mary's church building built in 1854. So the two men (both my great-great-grand grandfathers) must have known each other well for a long time before their children married each other.
The wife of Peter McConomy, Rebecca Rudisill,1806-1893 had probably lived at least part of her life in Franklin County, Pa. She was the daughter of John Adam Rudisill (1776-1837), a saddler, and Elizabeth Wolff (1784-1841). Rebecca's ancestors on both sides (as far as I can trace) were part of the Pennsylvania German community. She was raised in the Lutheran church, but converted to Catholicism, probably when she married Peter McConomy. She and Peter are both buried in St. Mary's Catholic Church cemetery in Lancaster, Pa.
