I am a completely obsessed amateur genealogist, researching both my and my husband's ancestors and am a huge fan of the findagrave site. I am grateful to all the volunteers out there who help us connect with our past. It is God's work. Thank you!
Memorial 57387498 Hi. Reference the above memorial in Mount Vernon Cemetery Philadelphia. Do you know the area or position in the cemetery these markes are. I research the 69th Pa Infantry of the Civil War and this man James was possible a soldier in the regiment.He James Carr and his wife Mary Neal Carr both have seperate headstones but adjacent. Many thanks and regards Michael Higgins www.69thPa.co.uk
Business card I found Fred F Quicksall's business card in my great grandparents photo album. I'm not sure how they would have known each other. My great grandfather graduated from Shippensburg in 1900 and lived in Three Springs, PA all of his life. His wife's sister live in Philadelphia and was the governess of Girad School for boys. Fred and my great grandfather were both masons, so maybe that was the connection. If you would like it can add a photo of the business card.
Priscilla Mahler I wasn't looking for her, just mowing rows, so the photo request was a surprise. I added the other person on the stone, Helen Mahler. If this is a relative, let me know I can transfer it to you.
Peter & Sophia Vallas Hi! So glad you found your aunt & uncle! I did this when first starting, and didn't know to bring a soft brush to sweep the headstone back then. I won't feel bad at all if you take a better pic. Happy searching for your roots! Jen
Wife of Frederick E. Hodgkiss You probably know this already, but if not: Frederick E. Hodgkiss married Mable Higgins about 1895, probably in New Jersey. They have a son, George Edwin Hodgkiss, born January 22, 1897. After Frederick died in 1903, Mabel married Charles Anderson about 1906 and had a daughter Elizabeth. Review the 1897 New Jersey Births/Christenings for George E. Hodgkiss born 1897; the 1900 Jersey City Census for Mable Hodgkiss; the 1910 Cornwall, Orange County, New York Census for Mable Anderson; the 1918 WWOne draft card for George E. Hodgkiss; the 1920 Jersey City Census for Mable Anderson. Bob Doughty, Seattle, Washington
Charlotte Perry Hotchkiss Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The memorial has been updated. You might want to think about removing the death certificate...it seems so personal. Just a thought.
Abraham Street Do you know the plot information for this grave or at least a general idea of where it is located in the cemetery? May have asked before. Please forgive the repetition. wm snider homestead, fl
Mercer Do you know anyone that is famliar with Mercer in Trenton? I am looking for plot information or at least general location of Charles Pitman and Mary James both 1800's. Library says it will be a long time before they can dig it out. Any ideas? Thanks wm
