Hi William -

I just wanted to thank you for the photos of the Fell;s in the Plumstead Friends Meeting Cemetery. I used the in my Family Tree and gave you the credit for taking them.

All the best,


PS: I did own an O'Day 25, TR that I would have loved to sail up your way. Too old now, I guess and living in Texas, there was no way of doing it.

LaRue in Bristol Cemetery
I added photos for Anna and Howard LaRue. The memorial says Annetta, but the details and the spouses details matched, so I was pretty certain I got the right folks. (I added the photo to the husband as well, even though there was no photo request).

RE: Hannah and Lydia Barndt
Thank you for processing the updates for the many memorials you added to the Little Zion cemetery. I recently had access to some of their church records so I was able to update the memorials with more information. Having that information on the memorial will help others to be able to easily find in person if they choose. Thanks again.

RE: Charles Brockdon Brown Find A Grave Memorial# 28510062
Hi Bill,

Thank you so very much for checking. I think it will remain a mystery then. It is a beautiful picture. That you photographed the marker means that it will last much longer than its "slowly washed away by water and smog life," and it is really appreciated by admirers of the author as well as family members.

Best wishes,

Charles Brockdon Brown Find A Grave Memorial# 28510062
Hi Bill,

Please forgive my totally being puzzled. There are two memorials for Charles Brown, two different cemeteries. Your photo of his grave marker places him in Laurel Hill. He passed away before the cemetery was established, but was very likely moved there later.

I am working on a memorial for his wife Elizabeth Linn. My interest is that she is a great plus aunt, and making her memorial can tie a lot of loose ends together, but I want to be accurate.

My question is, how was he found in Laurel Hill Cemetery? Some online bios place him in the other cemetery.

Thanks so very much for shedding light on this dark subject.

Hi, William - I have been adding the Emerick people to Laurel Hill Cemetery. There are a bunch of the Emerick people all moved to Laurel Hill Cemetery on the same date, including a George Emerick Find A Grave #: 143781604. It may not be the George connected to the Forepaugh people, but wanted you to be aware of the possibilities.
Some of these burials were for very old deaths, I believe, especially the ones connected to the two, named Battes Emerick.

Might be a very important cemetery for someone.

Capt. Gail vanFossin Mitchell
Just dropping you a quick note, Bill, to let you know that I found a photo of Gail vanFossin Mitchell, son to Iva VanFossen Brumback Mitchell and John Mitchell. Iva was daughter to William and Rebecca Ridge Brumback. I'm off ancestry right now, so leaving this message to you on Find A Grave. I noticed awhile back that there were some Van Fossen's in the Lower Tinicum Cemetery. Guessing the Ridge family knew them and that Rebecca gave her daughter Iva the middle name Van Fossen. Have a great week. - Sandra

RE: Wilson or Hodgson?
Strange. That would be a stretch of an error though! :)

Added by S.R.F. on Jan 19, 2015 4:13 AM

RE: Harriet Ridge
The Hogdson name IS on the Death Certificates of some of her children. And, she did have a son, named William Hodgson Ridge. I am guessing she married a Hogdson at some point, or maybe it was a family name that she used as her middle name?

I found a Quaker record for s report of the Byberry Month;y Meeting at the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting for "Dr. W. Hodson Ridge". It said he was part of a committee of persons who were selected to nominate trustees. It was dated 24 Dec 1916. His Death Certificate says he was a veterinarian.
