Yes, Michael McGraw and Louisa C Schmidt McGraw were my paternal great-grandparents. Their youngest child, Martha Washington McGraw, was my father's mother.
My uncle provided us with the photo of Louisa. There are no known photos of Michael, sadly.

I tried a photo today, into the sun and no etching contracts so I will need to take another shot soon.

Here is my relationship to John and Ellen McGraw...
John McGraw (1805 - 1859)
is your 2nd great grandfather

Son of John
Martha Washington McGraw (1891 - 1938)
Daughter of Michael
Norman Harris Robson (1922 - 1975)

I got the photo of Louisa Schmidt McGraw from my Uncle Milton Robson. I also have a Civil War era photo (taken in Washington, D.C.) of Michael's brother, John. There is no known photo in my family of my Great Grandfather, Michael.
How are we related?

Is this the memorial you're referring to? http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=ellis&GSmid=47161387&GRid=102645477&
I got this info, along with most of the military burials I post from the PA veteran burial cards online.

Philanthropic cemetery( defunct)
Once located at Passyunk and Tasker Streets in Philadelphia, all the interments where removed to Arlington Cemetery, Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania.
They are located in the Bethany section,there are no markers on the Graves sinc they were all moved from the old cemetery--you'll see a Big "Obelisk"that indentifies the section if you go to the Cemtery thats all the information they gave me.

How fun for you to participate in the reinactment, to see you in uniform and to be surrounded by historical significance. I have corrections for you regarding William Trickle, #16599436, how may I present them to you?

|Bill Rowan||RE: Isaac Wright|
On the Veteran's Burial card, it just has his name, unit, DOB, date of death, and cemetery name. The part of the card that contains grave information was left blank.

In Colonel Dare's bio that you have on his memorial you wrote: "he was forced to resign due to an illness that would finally claim his life in December of 1863." His gravestone, memorial, and information the 23rd Pennsylvania website states his death date of October 25, 1863. ?? Thanks, Brenda H.

|Jenn O.||Fernwood Cemetery|
Hello - I saw your requests for photos in Fernwood Cemetery. When you got information on section and plot numbers, did you happen to get section maps? If not, I wonder if you'd be willing to request them from the cemetery via mail? Section maps make finding plots in this large cemetery much easier, and I'd be happy to seek out stones.

Oliver McFadden was the "last union survivor of the Gettysburg Battle from Marietta Pa" He fought with the 23rd from 1861/1864. His rank was a corporal in the union army. He is burried in the Marietta Cemetery in Marietta Pennsylvania. This is another PA 23rd Infantry Volunteer who should be added to the list of soldiers who fought in those campaigns during the civil war. There are a couple of web sites on www.ancestry.com about the PA. 23rd Infantry Volunteers.
