|Bio and Links|
A Philly native transplanted to Manassas, VA. (Mom's side of the family was North and Dad's was South.) I grew up in the Frankford section of Philly, very close to three large cemeteries. |
I am not related to, nor have further information regarding, most of the names that I have added to this site. The information comes from a variety of sources, including interment records, obituaries, and tombstone inscriptions.
I am always happy to update/correct records that I have added to the site with verifiable information/resources.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are requesting transfer of a memorial to you, please explain the reason for the transfer. I am under no obligation to transfer a memorial I have added to findagrave and reserve the right to refuse any request. Thank you.

Thanks for adding the Hobsons to Cedar Hill. He is my great grandfather and I added a picture of his marker. I am still in Frankford and publish the Frankford Gazette. www.frankfordgazette.com
Joseph's wife was from Alexandria.

Thank you so much for posting my 3rd great grandfather's obit. I really appreciate it.

Hi, thanks for posting my 3rd great grandfather. On the posting you mentioned an obit in the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1901. I'd love to have a copy of it. Right now I live in Knoxville, Tenn. but my mother lives in Lancaster, Pa and several of my cousins still live in the Philly area. I wonder if its online. I am a member of Ancestry.com but I haven't seen it. Thanks for anything you can do.

Augustus Manke, #57189657 was my great-great grandfather. I have some info on him. Will you transfer his page to me please. I added a picture of him.

|Leslie Filemyr||Edits and John Salter transfer|
Thanks for making those edits I requested so promptly for siblings Ruth and Kenneth Groetzinger. I made those edit requests the last thing before going to bed late last night. Imagine my surprise to find them completed when I checked my email this morning. Also thanks for the (also prompt) transfer of John Salter's memorial to me, and for all you do for Find A Grave.

I am requesting a transfer to me for the above child who died of scarlet fever. There is a huge clan in Northwood Cemetery stemming from John and Catherine Rebmann, also buried there. I have many notes over the years of my research and am in contact with cousins from this John Rebmann who was a brother to my Anna Rebmann, my great great grandmother. I now have time to put all these people in find a grave in retirement. I have grave photos of most plots. I can link people to other cemeteries in Phila.
I grew up in West Oak, Northwood is not so far from Hatfield where I now live.
I appreciate your willingness to transfer this child so I can easily link all her family together.
This is the culmination of a huge body of work over the years! A wonderful way to put history for posterity. Thank you for your efforts.

If it is possible would you transfer this person to me she is a member of my family tree. I am hoping to add additional information to her, her siblings, Mother and grandparents as I find it. Thank you for placing the information on line making it possible to connect her to her family.

For Jennie R. Kyle, you cite:
"Phila. Inquirer, 08/24/1893
beloved wife of Matthew Kyle"
Do you have a copy of this that you can share, or point to where I can find it?
