RE: William Underwood

I bet you have many "meant to be" Serendipity, wonderful things happen. I feel the Soul's, want to be found. I also think the Soul's, read the internet, LOL.

Have you tried looking up the foster sibling on

If their sibling attended, High School, chances are, may have them on their site.

Thank-you for your kind offer of looking up my
buddy. I know her first name, but not her last,
she said she was Italian, I remember that.

You can look up the first name" without the last name,, believe it or not. I tried it.

I put a first name, Allegheny County, Pa, and the date of death, I think it was 1959. I found a lot of names. I will keep chipping at it.

You are so wonderful, I get those wonderful chills.

Thank-you for informing about the directory news.

RE: William Underwood
I will let you know if and when any
information is found on William grave site.

Perhaps, he is buried in a Potter's field?

Yes, Jenkins Arcade is gone but someone has
a door knob (not me) I recall someone mentioned
that tidbit to me.

But the Pittsburgh Pirates have been doing great!
The stadium looks so beautiful from TV.

"everything beginning has an ending - every ending
had a new beginning"

My childhood buddy died around 1957-1959. I know
the street address, town, would death certificates be looked up by the residence?

She was a foster child, briefly, before her and her sister were in the hospital. It was not pretty, her childhood was not easy, or her little sibling.

I am so determined to find my little buddy, sooner or later, I will keep digging.


Great map of Mt Olivet, I learned something new.
Thank-you, for the map, and for posting, William
Underwood's, death certificate on his memorial.

I will check with these fine people before I send
anyone on wild goose chase. The volunteers are
so wonderful (like yourselves) I do not to waste anyone's generous time on a wild goose chase.

Let me see, if this site has information on Mt Olivet's cemetery for little William.

Interesting, would be the word.

RE: William Underwood


Do Pennsylvanian's have all the death certificates
free of charge? 1906-1962?

How did you pull William's, death record,please?

I MISS Pittsburgh. There is no Gimbles, Kaufman's
or Hornes, in memory, there always will be. :)

RE: William Underwood

Mt Olivet is on Swallow road, is where I originally had Williams memorial.

Which Mt Olivet, is that, please?

I had him at Swallow Road, and then switched
poor William's, memorial, when you gave me the
link, with the three Underwood's.

Was I right the first time?

Please clear this up, if you have time.



P.S. The caretaker of the cemetery does not

RE: William Underwood
Hi Mary,

When I lived Pittsburgh I was not interested
in Genealogy, now I can't get enough of it.

I found this snippet on line. A newspaper
subscription is needed. I am not sure
what else the article has to offer.

The Bedford Gazette from Bedford, Pennsylvania Page 2

Pittsburgh.--Fourteen-year-old William Underwood, an inmate of St. Paul's Orphan Asylum, died of injuries sustained when he fell from the top of a cabinet. The lad, it is he saw, was re-enacting a scene he witnessed in a motion picture when the accident occurred.

I have, William Underwood's, death certificate which notes he fell from a partition in the assembly hall, which may have been the case.
Would you like for me to sent the death certificate? Mr. Olivet, is where he was buried but not plot was written. How many Mt. Olivets are there?

Mary, Thank-you, for your reply.

Thank-you for your suggestion.

I will try getting a hold of the orphanage
and ask them.

Did you know that has free
Pennsylvania death certificates, 1906-1962, on their web site?

Sometimes, Libraries, have a subscription to
ancestry, if you don't.

Amelia Kelker (Chiocca)
Thank you so much for your time in finding the death certificate for Amelia Chiocca. She was my great grandmother. If there is anyway you could take a picture of her grave marker (and her husband Frank), that would be wonderful. My dad grew up not knowing any of his fathers family. After my dad died, I made it my aim to find has much information as possible. Amelia I see is buried at Calvary Cemetery in Pittsburgh, 718 Hazelwood Ave. She should be by her husband, Frank (Francisco) Chiocca, along with some of their children, James Chiocca and maybe John Chiocca. Thank you so much for your service.
