William McBride - 81st Pa.
I just want to give you a huge THANK YOU for your posting of the headstone of William McBride of the 81st Pa. Inf. in Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Philadelphia. I am researching the men of the 81st Pa. and this was an enormous help. I have little information on the Vet and wasn't certain that it was my man buried in Trinity Lutheran. Your photo of his government headstone removed all doubt and put other information in place. Again, a huge thank you. Keep up the great work.
81st PVI

Enjoy your week!

That's okay Jane, it's fixed... I got tired of waiting and had admin merge your memorial which was posted in the wrong cemetery, it's gone now. HERE'S the merged memorial if it's any kin of yours. No offense, just trying to be helpful. Rich.

Janette Strickling Daugherty
Hello, Jane. I am the great grandaughter of Mary Cyrene Daugherty and J.B. Strickling. I have not done any research on "Aunt Net". However a relative did some family history in the '80s and her papers say "Mary Cyrene, or 'Rene' as she was called, had previously married George Burkhart and had a daughter, Nettie Burkhart." So assuming we are talking about the same person, I was wondering about the name here. Did she marry a Daugherty (that was Mary Cyrene's maiden name)? If you have any birth, death or marriage papers, I would love to have a copy.

Elizabeth Burg ~ Pennsylvania
Hello Jane. No offense, I'm just trying to be helpful. Seems you created a duplicate, yours is posted in the wrong cemetery, her obit even says she's buried at West Laurel Hill right? Yours is later, but posted wrong, might be easier if you'd delete yours, save admin from having to merge them? Anyway, see the problem HERE.

Stack -McKnight
I sent you an email. If you don't receive it, I thought it best to post here. I've been researching the Stack Family, which married into the McKnight family, as well as others. Teressa Stack m. David McKnight . She was the sister of my 3rd great grandmother, Maggie Stack m. John Esher. Their parents were Thomas and Ellen O'Connor Stack.
If you get a chance, please contact me,

Jeanette Buss gravestone
I sent an email but wasn't sure if it would reach you. I wish to know if the gravestone is marking the grave at section I Lot 22. My wife's grandmother is buried with Jeanette Buss in the same grave.

Trinity Luthern, Phila.
Hi Jane,
Just a heads up. I am working on the Brooks family in the Trinity Luthern Churchyard. Trying to link family members together through Pa Death Certificates, marriage and census records to triple check. So if you see a lot of edits from me you will know why.

Lawville Family of Phildelphia
Thank you for your great efforts to photograph all the Philadelphia memorials. I am looking for Eugene Lawville born on May 4, 1890 in Philadelphia to John J & Nonie Lawville, also of Philadelphia. You photographed a single monument ocntaining four Lawville members names. FIND A GRAVE has only four Lawville last names - the ones you photographed. If you come acrss Eugene Lawville I would sure like to hear from you. He was a private in WWI serving in the 318th Field Hospital in France. He maybe buried at the Cathedral where you are attempting to photograph. Regards, Thomas

Old Cathedral in Philadelphia, PA
Hi, just wanted to let you know I photographed all of Section Q & R at Old Cathedral. I see you are working on this cemetery, and didn't want you to do extra work going through these sections. Also, there is a volunteer group planning to visit this cemetery in December. If you'd ever like to join us, feel free! We have a Facebook group, Philadelphia Area Findagrave Meetups.

Section Z
Jane, I was down there in late March 2014 and got all markers photographed in Section Z. I went down there to look for Julia Ann Bowen 1868 and couldn't find it. I am also looking for any of the Bowen family circa 1860-1900. I know many of the markers are gone or are impossible to read.

Dear Jane,
I'm just curious - why won't they let you take photos in some cemeteries? Do they consider it private property? Just seems petty to me.

Old cathedral
I was looking at a couple I believe are related to me but not proven yet. I just wanted to say thank you for taking pictures of the grave sites. It is a big help to researchers and I believe everyone should be remembered.
Those workers should have better things to do than bother you. The Catholic Church should be ashamed of themselves
After all they have put innocent people thru in God's name!
Go back and finish the job when you can and maybe take a friend with you. There are power in numbers.
You are an Angel!

Michael Gaines
Samuel & Jane McKnight @ Mount Moriah Cemetery
Neither person has a visible marker at this time, though it could have gotten knocked over and covered by grass over time. They are both buried in Sec 200, Lot 185. Samuel was buried on Nov 23, 1899 and Jane on Dec 20, 1899. They are two of six McKnight's buried here (the other four being Margaret, Jennie, Samuel, and Grace). If you would like, I can get you the burial dates for the others.

Mai Garesche Norris
Greetings Jane!

See my memorial for Mai Garesche Norris (Mother Mary of St Anthony, RGS) on Find a Grave #89490110. Thanks to you I was able to attach her parents. I have a photo request out for her grave at Lourdesmont Cemetery in Clarks Summit. Carol Esselborn Fivecoat and I have been trying to get as many Garesche's in the database as possible. There are many buried here in the St Louis area.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day!

God bless!

Jane, I think we're related!!!
We've been looking for info on Annie and Thomas McKnight for YEARS and I accidentally found your entry on Find A Cemetary. Annie and Thomas were my great-great grandparents. We have lots of info on family members descended from them. Please contact me when you get this.
