Altemus memorials
Hi, Eugene - I just added a bunch of Altemus people to Laurel Hill Cemetery, etc., and I noticed that you have some data on some people by this name.

Maybe you would like to add a few of these folks to Find A Grave yourself ???

Milestown/Oaklane M. E. Cemeteries
Gene,
I have two notices that give Milestown M. E. Church. Am finding that apparently Milestown became Oaklane M. E., but nothing is mentioned in the review.
I assume these two notices should then go into
Oaklane M. E.?
Thank you, Jane

RE: Christ Church, etc.
I looked at the actual record. It lists Mt Airy, Philadelphia County as the place. I cannot read the name of the clergy. The parish register started in 1854 listing parishoners, baptisms, mariages states Christ Church Germantown Philadelphia County. Thank you. That is all I know at this point.

Jami Vancil
Longshore Family
Hello

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jami Vancil, I am currently searching my Longshore roots. I believe that I am a direct descendent of Robert Longshore. I am having trouble locating family records for Asher and Sarah (Powers) Longshore.

Asher and Sarah were Quakers, however, records indicate that he mustered with the militia in PA and was summarily disowned. I continue to search for any birth records of their children.

Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated, I am willing to travel to do research, but I need to know where the best place to start is. I use Ancestry.com regularly and have been to Ohio, Louisiana and Indiana searching for paper records.

Thank you so much for your attention in this matter.

Matthias Knorr 77883170
Well, Matthias died in 1862 so is it possible that he just may not be accounted for in the record books since it's well after the 1737 period that you mentioned. If there is a clear uncertainty I would like to leave him as buried in that cemetery until proven otherwise however if you feel that it is highly unlikely that he is buried there despite what I have found (as errors do exist) I will go ahead and remove him. Please let me know.

Thanks
Craig Ingraham

RE: Alfred Roebuck
Laurel Hill has no record of him so I will have to put him in burial unknown. Thanks for catching my error.

Hi. I will take him out of Hood Cemetery but before I do, when you say there is no record of him in Hood Cemetery does that mean that everyone buried in that cemetery is accounted for. Just thought I asked first before I made a change.

Thanks

RE: Anne Kaufman Hood Cemetery
Hi Eugene,
Is there a Jacob Kaufman (Kauffman) buried there? He was Anne Kaufman's son. He was killed in Germantown in a wagon accident on Oct. 24, 1732. Was Hood Cemetery know as the Lower Burying Ground in Germantown? If so, there is a record dated Feb.3, 1737/38 that Anne's son David Kaufman, contributed 5 shillings for the erection of a stone wall around the Lower Burying Ground in Germantown. There is also a possibility that David may also be burried there. They may be burried in the wall. Anne owned alot of land in Germantown. Thank you for your time.

Hutchinson Jenks Stackhouse
Hi there, I visited Cedar Hill Cemetery and found the gravestone for Hutchinson Stackhouse at the bottom of a pile. It's one of several stones there that appear to be in good shape. Dont know why they are separated from their grave plots. Anyway, I've attached my photo to his memorial. Cheers from Sherry

RE: Tabitha Kelly 1817-1905
Thank you!
I was referring to the info. the coroner had listed as "buried from". My mistake. If I was 2000 miles closer, I'd be wandering all over Hood Cemetery looking for her!

Tabitha Kelly 1817-1905
Hello,
Have you ever stumbled upon the name of Tabitha Kelly in Hood cemetery? I finally found a coroners certificate for her stating she died April 22,1905 422 Ashmead St. She was buried at 272 Ashmead St. Hood Cemetery, Germantown on April 25,1905.

This is all I have about the woman who survived through a tough time, at least 2 husbands, 11 children (one is my father's great grandfather) the civil war, and worked as a housekeeper. I have only one census record even stating her existance. Her son's name is James McClain b 1853 in PA.

Any help would be appreciated,
Thank you

Samuel Rittenhouse
Hi, Euegene - See corrections in my note. I need some help with the Samuel Rittenhouse men buried in Philadelphia county.

Found some interesting death certificate information. You have the one who lived at 696 West Johnson St., Germantown, born in 1840.

I have another one born in 1836, who lived at a different address.

There are some claims for one or both of the Samuel men being married to a Matilda (Hippert) Rittenhouse. I have found some Matilda Rittenhouse ladies, one of them married a Charles Rittenhouse, and one of them looks like he is probably the wife of Charles, who is still buried in the Mennonite Churchyard.

I need to be sure I placed all these folks properly. One Matilda was moved and is now buried with her husband Charles Rittenhouse at Ivy Hill Cemetery. I am anxious to get tombstone pictures for them, as that is probably a fairly recent tombstone or tombstones, as one researcher discussing being involved in inscribing it herself.

Are you still doing Rittenhouse research in the Philadelphia area?
