Thank you for the info. I figured it was unlikely there, but worth a try. :)

I do have it listed that there is no headstone - I did confirm this with the cemetery. Thank you!

RE: Grave with Sarah E. on it
No, her name was Sarah Ella Hawke and her married name was Dolan. She died October 5, 1996. Her husband was Catholic, but she was not, so when she died her parents buried her in Brandywine instead of Cathedral Cemetery. (I'm sure there is an interesting story there.)

I can find much of the Hawke family, her parents William and Mary, and sisters Cora, Anna, and Emma, buried there in the Hawke plot, but not Sarah.

The grave I think might be hers is:
Find A Grave Memorial# 129886048

I will try contacting the cemetery.

Grave with Sarah E. on it
I am researching the Dolan family. My great grandmother was Sarah Ella Dolan. She died October 5 or 6, 1896 at the age of 32. She was buried in Wilmington and Brandywine Cemetery by her parents, not her husband.

I think the grave that says Sarah E. near to Asher and Rebecca Logan in your photo MIGHT be her grave. Cannot see the rest of the writing. I live in Texas, but am hoping to get a relative still in the area to come see what is hidden.

Short Family Find a Grave Memorial
Hi! I made an edit to the William S. Short memorial and, I guess, the edit info went to you. You indicated that the memorial doesn't belong to you, so you can't make any changes. Are we talking about the same memorial? The one I made the edit to indicates the following info:

Old and hard to read stones
Looks like you come across your share of older and harder to read stones, so I wanted to share this deciphering method with you. You will be tempted to go back and discover the names on the stones you've already created memorials for with an 'unknown' ... that's what happened to me! :)

I posted this on the Find a Grave Facebook page some time ago:

Never leave home without your LED flashlight!
Found this grave today & want to show you all the difference an LED flashlight makes.
From my other post, This is the safest method of reading these old graves and I feel the most effective. We use an LED flashlight, the higher the lumens, the better. The flashlight we use has 1700 lumens. Shine from left to right, at the edge of the grave, the letters pop right out. We have not had to use foil since we've learned this trick. Some folks say use a blacklight, but our regular LED flashlight works. We recently upgraded from an 860 lumen flashlight (EA4) but it worked great as well.
When the sun is too bright, we use our umbrella to provide shade, then light it up.

If you check out the original post from Jun 21, 2014, you'll see the before and after photo examples.

Hope you enjoy!

RE: Jennette Campbell
You already have a photo of their stone on another memorial. That's why I wasn't sure if I had the right one. You have a memorial for William J. Campbell and for his wife, I think you have Pollack for her maiden name, not Close. Not sure about this though, it was yesterday when I saw it, haha. My memory fools me sometimes, very quickly.

Hello Kimberly,

Thanks for transferring John's memorial to me. I've updated his information, linked him to his family and added his obituary. Thanks again for your help!

Kind regards,

Thank you, Kimberly, for posting these two pictures of the Baerenbach gravesite. It was fun and exciting for me to find these pictures of my great great grandparents' headstone. And thank you for extending permission to use the photos. My intention is just to copy them for my own records.

RE: Peter A. Grandillo 23917280
Hi, Kimberly. That tombstone picture is an excellent and invaluable addition that you've made to Peter's memorial. Probably the inscribed birth year isn't actually accurate, as Peter's life records don't really corroborate it, though it is an important piece of documentation all the same, and it's wonderful that you've added it. Best regards, Dave Wilson

Thank you. I will try to do that.

RE: Reynolds
OK. Thank you. Not sure if you noticed, but when her husband died, it was common practice to engrave the "19" in the stone, figuring she would die before the year 2000. Well, she fooled them all and they had to repair the stone, fill in the 19 and re-carve 2001. I always found it interesting. Anyway, thanks for taking the photo...

I was just wondering how you might be related to Lily Pyle Reynolds? She was my great grandmother on my mothers side.

We would like to use your photos on the Chester County Hall of Heroes.

I know your profile says we can use it, but I'd like a proper citation for your work.

If you still have the original photos, can you email them to, otherwise, we'll lift them from the site.
