Notes

Father John Baptist Gildea (b.1804/d.1845) was born in Baltimore before his father and mother moved to Emmitsburg. He began his education at 15 years of age, at Mt. Saint Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland and attended from 1819 to 1828. During that time he was also teaching some classes at Mt. Saint Mary's. He later transferred St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore, Maryland a year before his Ordination. He was ordained March 25, 1829. There was a very fine painting of Father Gildea in St. Vincent's Orphanage, Baltimore, Maryland. The Sisters of Mercy ran the orphanage at the time. Father Gildea was very active in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. One of his surplices was in a museum at Mt. St. Agnes College, Mt. Washington in Baltimore. It was made of rare lace and brought from France as a gift to him. Another surplice was at Notre Dame in Baltimore. Father built a chapel at Asquith near Orleans for the Carmelite Nuns. A protestant church now owns it.

Father was the nun's chaplain. The nuns and all people held him in very high regard in the vicinity. One of the nuns became mentally deranged. She screamed from a street corner that she was being held a prisoner and wanted someone to help her escape. The people formed a mob and tried to rescue her. The nuns called Father Gildea. He explained to the people what was wrong and soon quelled the riot. Everyone had confidence in Father Gildea. Father Gildea established the Catholic Tract Society. He built the church at Martinsburg, West Virginia and established the cemetery there. He also built the church at Harpers Ferry, the Carmelite Chapel and St. Vincent's Church in Baltimore. He was the pastor at St. James The Less in Old Town. Just before Father's death, he started to build a male orphanage beside St. Vincent's Church.

After his death the work stopped. Before that the sexton had seen him kneeling at St. Vincent's alter. Finally the sexton said to him "In the name of God Father what brings you back"? Father told him that there were papers in a secret drawer in his desk that would enable the work to go on. He thought in faith it could happen. Father Gildea's "Will" gave the desk to Barry Colding after a time it became the possession of Mrs. Ira Swaim in San Francisco. Mrs. Swain was Barry Colding's niece. Father Gildea's "Will" is in the archives at the Cathedral in Baltimore. Father's body was initially interred under the main alter at St. Vincent's Church. Later it was removed from there to be placed in the priest's lot at the new Cathedral Cemetery when the city was about to buy the land St. Vincent Church occupies. That project may have finally come along.
