Janette Strickling Daugherty
Hello, Jane. I am the great grandaughter of Mary Cyrene Daugherty and J.B. Strickling. I have not done any research on "Aunt Net". However a relative did some family history in the '80s and her papers say "Mary Cyrene, or 'Rene' as she was called, had previously married George Burkhart and had a daughter, Nettie Burkhart." So assuming we are talking about the same person, I was wondering about the name here. Did she marry a Daugherty (that was Mary Cyrene's maiden name)? If you have any birth, death or marriage papers, I would love to have a copy.

Hello Jane. No offense, I'm just trying to be helpful. Seems you created a duplicate, yours is posted in the wrong cemetery, her obit even says she's buried at West Laurel Hill right? Yours is later, but posted wrong, might be easier if you'd delete yours, save admin from having to merge them? Anyway, see the problem HERE.

Rachel Doyle Meyer # 42568016
Hi Jane,
I submitted an edit for the above. I have been heavily researching my family, even going to Chambersburg, PA as that is where above Rachel and her brother Isaac Doyle (my 3rd GGF) are from. I have documentation including Church records from Corpus Cristi Church in Chambersburg, which is where Rachel Doyle and Herman Meyer's marriage is recorded. I also have Letters of Administration from the Franklin County Courthouse in Chambersburg naming Rachel as one of 12 children of Michael Doyle who died intestate leaving 10 of those children underage in 1927 ...Rachel and my GGGGF, Isaac, being two of them. I have tracked down a few other of the siblings and have connected them here on Find A Grave. Please consider the edit I sent through the edit tab or even possibly a transfer in management of the family, including Ann Doyle # 42568265, who I believe was a sister but have not been able to trace her as well as the other family here

I sent you an email. If you don't receive it, I thought it best to post here. I've been researching the Stack Family, which married into the McKnight family, as well as others. Teressa Stack m. David McKnight . She was the sister of my 3rd great grandmother, Maggie Stack m. John Esher. Their parents were Thomas and Ellen O'Connor Stack.
If you get a chance, please contact me,

I sent an email but wasn't sure if it would reach you. I wish to know if the gravestone is marking the grave at section I Lot 22. My wife's grandmother is buried with Jeanette Buss in the same grave.

Trinity Luthern, Phila.
Hi Jane,
Just a heads up. I am working on the Brooks family in the Trinity Luthern Churchyard. Trying to link family members together through Pa Death Certificates, marriage and census records to triple check. So if you see a lot of edits from me you will know why.

Lawville Family of Phildelphia
Thank you for your great efforts to photograph all the Philadelphia memorials. I am looking for Eugene Lawville born on May 4, 1890 in Philadelphia to John J & Nonie Lawville, also of Philadelphia. You photographed a single monument ocntaining four Lawville members names. FIND A GRAVE has only four Lawville last names - the ones you photographed. If you come acrss Eugene Lawville I would sure like to hear from you. He was a private in WWI serving in the 318th Field Hospital in France. He maybe buried at the Cathedral where you are attempting to photograph. Regards, Thomas

Old Cathedral in Philadelphia, PA
Hi, just wanted to let you know I photographed all of Section Q & R at Old Cathedral. I see you are working on this cemetery, and didn't want you to do extra work going through these sections. Also, there is a volunteer group planning to visit this cemetery in December. If you'd ever like to join us, feel free! We have a Facebook group, Philadelphia Area Findagrave Meetups.

I recently contacted you via e-mail (, I received no reply, I believe this was the second time I have tried to contact you. If you have no interest in helping people please state it on your profile and don't expect other people to help you. If you can't tell, I am upset, I enjoy very much researching my tree and helping others in their quest, I hope you find that pleasure one day. thanks for your time

Section Z
Jane, I was down there in late March 2014 and got all markers photographed in Section Z. I went down there to look for Julia Ann Bowen 1868 and couldn't find it. I am also looking for any of the Bowen family circa 1860-1900. I know many of the markers are gone or are impossible to read.

Dear Jane,
I'm just curious - why won't they let you take photos in some cemeteries? Do they consider it private property? Just seems petty to me.

Old cathedral
I was looking at a couple I believe are related to me but not proven yet. I just wanted to say thank you for taking pictures of the grave sites. It is a big help to researchers and I believe everyone should be remembered.
Those workers should have better things to do than bother you. The Catholic Church should be ashamed of themselves
After all they have put innocent people thru in God's name!
Go back and finish the job when you can and maybe take a friend with you. There are power in numbers.
You are an Angel!

Michael Gaines
Samuel & Jane McKnight @ Mount Moriah Cemetery
Neither person has a visible marker at this time, though it could have gotten knocked over and covered by grass over time. They are both buried in Sec 200, Lot 185. Samuel was buried on Nov 23, 1899 and Jane on Dec 20, 1899. They are two of six McKnight's buried here (the other four being Margaret, Jennie, Samuel, and Grace). If you would like, I can get you the burial dates for the others.

Mai Garesche Norris
Greetings Jane!

See my memorial for Mai Garesche Norris (Mother Mary of St Anthony, RGS) on Find a Grave #89490110. Thanks to you I was able to attach her parents. I have a photo request out for her grave at Lourdesmont Cemetery in Clarks Summit. Carol Esselborn Fivecoat and I have been trying to get as many Garesche's in the database as possible. There are many buried here in the St Louis area.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

God bless!

Jane, I think we're related!!!
We've been looking for info on Annie and Thomas McKnight for YEARS and I accidentally found your entry on Find A Cemetary. Annie and Thomas were my great-great grandparents. We have lots of info on family members descended from them. Please contact me when you get this.
