RE: Robert McWilliams
No. I'm sorry. I couldn't even identify the names on the stones. Most of them were totally warn flat. The two that weren't didn't even have enough texture to get a decent rubbing.

RE: Obituary for Dr. John E. Peters
You have posted an image of the obituary for Dr. Peters on his memorial page on findagrave, and I am grateful for your effort. I wasn't able to enlarge the obituary copy without causing much distortion. Would you be willing to send me a copy of the original-sized scan? I would be most grateful. I am related to Dr. Peters via his wife, Malissa Chalfant. gdhobgen@aol.com

Hello Blair, Thank you so much for the photo of the gravestone. I have a question as to the flowers in the photo.......were they there or did you place them there to improve the photo? If that is true, another thank you because they really make the stone show up nicely. I have the death certificate for this child who was the child of my great uncle; his name is listed as it is above. Why it is different is something we could only guess at, but it definitely is the boy I was looking for.
My deep appreciation to you, Laura

Philadelphia National Cemetery forum thread
Hello again! I see there has been some activity since I removed those Longshore photo requests. I started a forum thread for discussing problematic Find-A-Grave memorials at Philadelphia National Cemetery, and what we might do about them. Follow along or join in!

Matilda Broome at Berlin Cemetery
Hello, I see that you just recently took another photo of mt 4x great-grandmother, Matilda Broome's stone at Berlin Cemetery. I'm so sad to see that it has been toppled over :( Did you place the flowers?

RE: Phila National Cemetery
I am not sure if Russ can do that.
Find a Grave now belongs to Ancestry.com.
I don't know how entries can be removed.

Phila National Cemetery
The Philadelphia National Cemetery was founded after the Civil War.
The Bucks County Quakers who are listed as being buried in that cemetery (Stackhouse, Longshore, etc.) are not buried there.
The reason that someone entered their names in the National Cemetery is unknown.

Philadelphia National Cemetery
Hello. I'm trying to clear away some of the old photo requests from the Philadelphia National Cemetery site. I see you have requested several photos for that cemetery that have had problems reported:

Abner Longshore, d. 1843
Euclydus Longshore, d. 1764
Euclydus Longshore, d. 1804

Philadelphia National Cemetery was established in 1862. The remains of some veterans of the Mexican war who died in the 1850s were transferred there in 1927. Finding anyone who died prior to the 1850s at Philadelphia National Cemetery would be highly unlikely. I would like to know if I might have these requests removed. If not, I would like to know your basis for believing that these people are buried here, so that I might offer additional suggestions.
