RE: Hello Egli & Huber graves St Philomena's
Hello there.

Thank you for your message. I wish I had more information on your ancestors and sorry that you've had a hard time finding out where they are actually buried. It could be that the cemetery didn't keep up to date records. The cemetery that I'm working on now, not the cemeteries that were combined or re-interred into Christ the Redeemer, had quite a few re-interred graves as well and the cemetery has very little information on those that were re-interred so it doesn't surprise me that this has happened.

I sent you that message because I added someone who was originally listed in St. Philomena but then I found out that they were re-interred in Christ The Redeemer cemetery, so I added the name there (the Cemetery page here on Findagrave).

I wish I had more information to help you. The only thing that you can do is either keep them listed where they currently are but then someone might ask Findagrave to merge the cemeteries into the one so eventually they will be listed in Christ The Redeemer anyway. It's up to you.

As a suggestion, I would maybe put that information in the memorial that they were originally buried in St. Philomena then also put they were re-interred in Christ the Redeemer but it is not known if there are existing markers.

Do you know if there were markers originally for your family members? Do you happen to know if there is a designated section for those that were supposedly re-interred in Christ The Redeemer? I would inquire at the cemetery office again and ask them if there was a designated area were those that were re-interred from St. Philomena and other cemeteries.

Also, you can always put in a photo request here on Findagrave for your family members but again, make sure you mention that they were re-interred from St. Philomena and that you are not sure if there are markers or where they are located. Also indicate that the cemetery office has no information or records on your family members but that it's still possible that they are there. Where else could they be?

The cemetery I'm working on, there are 2 designated areas specifically for those that were originally buried in the Oakland Cemetery. Most have been recorded now and entered from the markers at the cemetery but now I'm finding death certificates for those not entered and I'm creating memorials for them. I indicate in the memorial that they were originally buried in Oakland cemetery but were re-interred.

Who was in charge of St. Philomena Cemetery? Is there still an office where you can contact someone who might still have these records? The historians that you spoke to, maybe they might know whom you can contact to find out more information. What year did this re-interment occur?

I wish you all the best and hope you find out some answers. I sent the same message to 1 or 2 other memorial managers who had memorials in that same cemetery where you had your family members listed and now I wonder if they are going through the same thing.

If you're on Ancestry, try maybe starting a post asking if there are other members who had family buried in St. Philomena but were re-interred and if they have information on whom you can contact to find out more information on your family members. There is also Findagrave Forum, you can maybe ask there as well.

Facebook might be another place that you can meet others as well. Someone else must know something. It's just finding the right places to go to find the answers that you need to put your mind at ease as to where your family members are buried.

Christ The Redeemer has a site but if someone did not update their files on the site then you will not find your family members there.

It's great that you found other family members which means that maybe, your family members are there but without markers perhaps.

Hope this information helps.

With kind regards,

Albertico :)

Thank you so much for doing what you do! I would like to request your permission to use the photos of my Hoy / Hoey ancestors. You have taken the picture of Samuel K. Hoey tombstone. I will use it in my genealogy database program and to share with family members. I will credit you with taking the picture.

Thanks again for all that you do,

I have read the terms of transferring a relative's memorial. Will you please transfer Samuel A. Dunfee to me? Once again, thank you for your initial contribution (your original work and credits will not be altered/deleted) linking me to my great-great uncle.

Irene (Youngen) Funk and family
Hello. I just found the memorial for my 3rd cousin 3x removed Irene (Youngen) Funk and her husband, and was hoping it'd be ok if I used your photo in my family tree (crediting you of course).

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph their headstone! :)

I don't remember if I transfered to you because you are family, but I want you to know I added a funeral notice to his page.
