JOHN McMONIGAL-John served in the Civil War. He lived in Imogene for 12 years and moved to Maryville, MO
two months prior to his death in August 1910. He had been in ill health for a long time. His family asked Father
Hayes to select a marble statue while in Pietrasanta, Italy that could be used as John's tombstone. The tombstone
arrived in Imogene two days after John's family moved to Missouri. Father Hayes ended up paying for the statue and
it was placed on the grounds in front of the 2nd St. Patrick Church. The pedestal for the statue had already been
inscribed with the McMonigal name. When the third St. Patrick Church was being built, the statue and pedestal were
moved into the new church. Later, after the marble altar gates would not close properly, they were replaced by
bronze gates. One of the marble gates was cemented to the pedestal and covered all but the very top of the
McMonigal name. The statue is in the SW corner of the current church. Check the pedestal for the remnants of the
McMonigal name the next time you are in St. Patrick Church.
