Re: Ellen Barnes Swift
Hi Tom,
I noticed my ancestor's family information is listed incorrectly on this page. If you look at Ellen Barnes Swift, her tombstone even reads James Barnes is her father. She is the wife of Harvey Swift and somewhere this information was confused. I am still trying to prove James Barnes parents, either James or William. Anyway, thank you for taking the time you take to do genealogy that helps us all in some way or another!

Here is the record info:

Pearthree at Penn Hill Burial Ground
Tom, would you happen to have noticed if Estella Pearthree's husband, Edwin Franklin Pearthree, was buried near his wife? He died in 1983. His parents are also buried there, so I'm assuming he would be with his family there.

Emma Stevenson
Hello Tom I just found your posting for my great grandmother Emma Stevenson. Her maiden name was Gee. I was wondering how you came across her name and whether there was any other information such as her parent's names. I certainly appreciate what you found. I am from NE Philadelphia (Holmesburg) but have been living in West Chester for the past 26 years. I am 81 years old. Best regards Bill Reilly

Woodward Hill vs Zion Lutheran
Thanks! I'll have to make another visit sometime to get a good visual of these definitions. I've been checking the death certificates of the ones I posted and the headstone photos I took. It seems that's the best (only?) way to determine which cemetery it really belongs in. I've moved the ones I've found to be wrong. Thanks for all you do to keep it all straight.

Thanks for the correction to this memorial. I've deleted it. I switched the Wohlers' memorials from Woodward Hill to Zion Lutheran after checking the death certificates that are available online. Am I picturing Woodward Hill correctly when I'm thinking it is quite small compared to the adjacent cemetery Zion Lutheran? What street does the main entrance come off, with Woodward hill on the left and Zion Lutheran on the right?

Edith Stearns # 118213429, Quarryville Home Cemetery
Dear Tom, I would very much like to have the transfer of Edith Stearns to me. Edith and her husband did not have children and we came to know her from 1982 when she was at the Quarryville Retirement Home and she became the closest friend to my husband's grandmother Thelma Grayson. She would come home with us on holidays when her health was still good. She was very dear to us. Thank You Carrie K Grayson

RE L Hamor
I don't have any more info in her and I am in AZ right now and can't go out to check. I changed her to Unknown and when I get back next week I'll get it fixed.
