My great great grandfather Bartholomew O’Rourke is buried in Old Napier Cemetery, Napier Hill, Napier, New Zealand in a family plot, along with sons Patrick James O’Rourke and James Thomas Power O’Rourke, daughters Mary Josephine O’Rourke and Brigid Power O’Rourke, and wife Bridget Power O’Rourke.

Many thanks to the kind Trade Me genealogy forum member who located and photographed the gravestone for me.
