RE: Maria Alcorn
Hi Pat,
You're welcome! Here's a really great source for info at Spring Grove:
Go to their website at www.springgrove.org. Click on the tab at the top of the page that says "Locate a Loved One". On the screen that comes up, the second option says "Search by Location" Enter in "Land" for Garden, Section 112, Lot 112 (where Maria is buried). It will bring up that lot with all of the names of those buried there. If you click on a name, a "burial report" comes up that will usually show some very useful info for the genealogist. Maria's burial report shows that she was born in Wales and that her father's name was Hugh Evans. Unfortunately her mothers name is unlisted. These reports usually show how those in each lot were related or can be connected to each other.
Just for your info, there are 8 people buried in this lot but I only found markers there for Maria and Robert Alcorn, and Robert(Bobbie) Horn. The others there have no gravestones. But they each have burial reports on the Spring Grove Website.
