Corleys at holy Sepulchre
Donna I have seen many of your memorials of Corleys (an many others) buried at Holy Sepulchre (sp) in Philadelphia (Cheltenham). I am a Corley form Chicago, my dad emigrated from Hagfield Ireland in 1948. His father, my grandfather and grandmother each married twice my dad was the only son of Michael Corley and Katherine Grady Gallagher Corley. Anyway my grandfather Michael and his first wife came to philly (later went back to Ireland), in Philly Michael and his first wife had two infant sons die --Thomas when he was 4 in 1911 and Michael V Corley on his second bday in 1910. Both of their death certs say they are buried in Holy Sepulchre. If you could send a picture Michael and Thomas graves I would be very thankful.

Photo request:)
Hi Donna,
I was wondering if you would be able to take a photo for me at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery? I have had a request in for almost 2 months, but it has not been claimed and taken by anyone yet. (I note that their a lot of requests.) It is for the stone of my aunt Helen Mallory Barry and her husband William. It was reported to be: Plot: N-10-38-3 8.

If you don't have time, I completely understand. Maybe you could suggest someone else that might be able to take one.

Thanks and best wishes!

Bill Slemmer,
Ouray County, Colorado

I'd like to see if you would be able to transfer Ella to me. Her find-a-grave # is 79146224. She is my husband's great grandmother and we have been searching for her for some time now.

Please let me know what information you would need.

Thank you!

Bio on Edward John Spencer
There should be a tab on Find A Grave Memorial# 3210 Suggest any other correction or addition So one can edit like this; Shouldn't that be Sarah Churchill, and not Ferguson, for grandmother of the first Lady Diana Spencer?
Best wishes,

Col Harry Cutler transfer Request
Hi Donna,

I didn't realize that I didn't manage this ancestor's grave on here. Thanks for setting him up and putting up the picture I don't think I've ever found before.

He was a very influential man in the RI Jewish community at the time and I have a lot of information to add to his record.

Thanks.. I really appreciate that.

By the way, looking at your bio I was wondering if you knew why Harry's sister (listed in this cemetery as Rose C. Burnard) isn't listed with the rest of the family on Find A Grave.

I know she is supposed to be with them because The cemetery sent me a plot record a couple of years ago so I see her listed there with Harry and their mother Ethel Cutler.

It just so happens I was looking at that print out and I only JUST NOW noticed that Rose & Ethel (Mother & Daughter) died on the SAME day (April 2, stated on Ethel's headstone). My goodness... that is so tragic.

Thanks... Joni in Houston, TX :)

what can be done about a total stranger adding & then "owning" a grave? Someone named Carol (now deceased has added records from my family & I am not able to edit them.

Hello Donna, I had just recently learned of our dear friend's cemetery info, 35 years after his death. This morning I signed up to enter his info and low and behold, you had also done so and included his father's info. Re: Memorial #144603019

Thanks and cheers!

Hello. Would you kindly transfer or delete 101244725? Maria was my gr-gr-grandmother? I had her information on another id 132010164 which gives more information on the Tracey lines.

Thank you,

de Stefano
I notice you have info on de Stefanos buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon PA. I am working on family history for a friend whose grandparents Rocco and Raffealla de Beasso are buried in that cemetery; Raffealla's mother was Maria di Stefano and was born in Italy. If you know of this family I would like to hear from you. Other family names are Cirotta, Conzana, Sangeria and something that looks like Pettscichle.

Loretta Gillingham AKA: Aunt Dearie
Thank you for transferring Loretta Gillingham to my Findagrave account, Donna! She is my sister-in-law's aunt and was known as "Aunt Dearie". I never met her but hear she was an independent woman and a real pistol :-).

Like you, I am a genealogy addict (researching since 1994) and share your belief that some ancestors have spaceships involved.

I am also big fan of Findagrave. Your work has not gone unnoticed and is respected. Thank you for all you do!

Thank You
I recently learned of 3 families that are related to me in the Philadelphia area. I was so pleased to see how many of them you had found and documented so well. I just thought you ought to know that your work is appreciated.

Thank you for the edit. I processed them this afternoon. I noticed the obituary listed as a memorial flower and have added that to the memorial. I'm glad I noticed it because it also listed his wife's maiden name, and his place of death. Thanks again!

Added by Johnny on Jan 28, 2015 12:33 PM

Thank you
An obit that you posted with a grave gave me many confirming clues to the line I am researching. Job well done my genealogy friend!
