Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

Eric ... the site wouldn't let me make the changes/additions, so that's why I sent you a message.

Valeria Robino
Eric, remember me? I didn't know the Robinos had a child that died. Valeria was born 5 Feb 1922 and died 9 Nov 1923 and was buried at Cathedral Cemetery, Section 13D, Grave 6721 on 10 Nov 1923. Her parents were Frank (Sr.) and Tersilla (Casaroni) Robino and she was sister to Louis, John, Josephine, Charles, Frank (Jr.), Mary and Angelina.

IF you have any questions, please contact me at

RE: Cathedral
Wow! You might think they would have it correct. Or at least "mostly" correct. I'm surprised at that. Cemetery is well taken of and almost all stones have the section etched on -- something I've never seen before. However, they lack on vital info. Guess it's up to us to set it straight! :) Happy 2016~Kimberly

Hello Eric - I'm curious where you got the info for Cathedral. There are so many names wrong that it seems very unusual. Is this info you obtained from the cemetery itself? Kimberly

Thanks you so very much for your research. I have input the info on Find a Grave and also on my tree at Ancestry.

John C. Crowley
The old grave map of the graves that were moved from Delaware Ave back to the current soldiers GAR area has a notation under John's name: "Removed 5-19-1922 Silverbrook Cemetery". Do you have any confirmation or information on this notation? I say this because his current grave in W & B is not identifiable. He was a member of Co. C, 1st Delaware Cavalry. Respond to:

Harriett Pfisterer/Pfister Silverbrook
Hello Eric,

I got a message that I had created a duplicate for Harriett Pfisterer memorial #145222080. The other memorial is yours memorial #113295865. I am moving the photo I have to yours and deleting mine. I wanted to let you now since the monument has the name spelled differently than the obituary you have posted. I am not sure which is correct.
