Greek Catholic and Roman Catholic are same Church. Well it not proves much if he was burried in RC graveyard. Thing is that major Archibishop of US in end of 19th century was strongly aginst Eastern rite Catholics, John Ireland. Some of them re-joined Eastern Orthodox Church because of his insolence (Rusyns were originaly Eastern Orthodox before 1648).
If we knew he was Greek Catholic, we could determine that he was Rusyn, in this way, situation remains complicated. :)

Yeah.. That's why even if I ever locate the villages, though it seems like L'viv is my lucky break, I'm still not sure I'll ever figure something out.  Between the need of a longer surname and not knowing his religion, I'd have to go thru literally every church record and see what I could find.
