Daughter of Isaac Kite and Sarah Sellers Kite. Wife of William Emory Wright.

Death records show originally buried here at Monument Cemetery. Other records indicate that all interments were moved in 1956 to Lawnview Cemetery in Rockledge Pennsylvania. The reason for the move is so that Temple College could build a parking lot in its place. With that info said I have researched Lawnview records but came up empty handed. What I have found interesting is the story in the book by Tom Keels' Rest in Pieces: Philadelphia's Lost Cemeteries and the article at http://thecemeterytraveler.blogspot.com/2011/04/watery-remains-of-monument-cemetery.html
