The photo above shows the bell in the belltowerof St. Mary's Church (Officially the Church of the Immaculate Conception)in Rushville.  With a little effort, the reader will see that thebell is inscribed with the Latin words: "AVE, GRATIA PLENA."  ("Hail,full of grace") and the names Jas. Scanlon and D.J. Egan, both of whomhad long served the parish with donations of both time and money. D.J. Egan's contribution is documented in the "Historyof Catholicity in Indiana" (1898) where it is asserted that the parishhad thus honored D.J. Egan.  In spite of a credible "tradition" aboutthis bell, and the discovery of the historical document, Andy Weidekampand I (both great grandsons of D.J.) were still skeptical enought to climbthe bell tower in September of 2001 to obtain this photo.
