Robert Glennon
Robert Glennan was my grandmother's uncle. He was a riverboat pilot on the Chester and Delaware rivers. He was an inmate at the Little Sisters of the Poor in Wilmington, DE from before 1930. The Glennan name has been spelled different ways. My grandmother lost her parents at age 12. She and her sisters lived with aunts and uncles on their mother's side. This part of the family spells the name Glenan. The rest of her father's family appear to spell as Glennan. That is why I tried to change Robert's name. Putting an 'o' was probably a transcription error.
I have encountered this problem with other relatives from time to time.

RE: Photo posted to wrong memorial
Thanks for heads up. Someone put wrong info stating that your Peters was the one from Civil War.

Thank you for all of the missing data on the grave pictures. I am not a data person but 47 stones with more meaning is fantastic! Where did you find it all?

gertrude lucy owens gallagher
re: Gertrude born 1900 died 1987 buried at All Saints cemetery in Delaware... The sibling list for her is incomplete. There was another brother named Joseph Owens. He lived near Aston or Boothwyn, Pennsylvania, near Claymont, Delaware. Although he lived nearby, Gertrude did not like Joe very much and they never visited. She disapproved of his drinking. Maybe that's a factor in his absence from the sibling list. She felt much closer to her other brother who lived in Mount Carmel, PA. He is the one who appears on the list.

RE: Ethel A Smith (1909-1993) and Gordon C Smith (1909-1960)
Awesome thanks Eric. The details in the marriage record connects a lot of dots. Gordon died in PA so I have the death certificate. This has been an interesting trip as my cousin was always told he was reported as MIA from WW2 and never knew what happen to him. Appears to be an untold story here...Kelly

Hi Eric,

You posted memorials for the two people above. Do you know anything about them? They are relatives of mine and I have some info but nothing about when they got married or children. Gordon Calvin was born in Canada and I believe Ethel Agnes (nee Foley) was born in Marlborough Mass. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Kelly M Smith (Mr.)

Eric ... the site wouldn't let me make the changes/additions, so that's why I sent you a message.

Valeria Robino
Eric, remember me? I didn't know the Robinos had a child that died. Valeria was born 5 Feb 1922 and died 9 Nov 1923 and was buried at Cathedral Cemetery, Section 13D, Grave 6721 on 10 Nov 1923. Her parents were Frank (Sr.) and Tersilla (Casaroni) Robino and she was sister to Louis, John, Josephine, Charles, Frank (Jr.), Mary and Angelina.

IF you have any questions, please contact me at

RE: Cathedral
Wow! You might think they would have it correct. Or at least "mostly" correct. I'm surprised at that. Cemetery is well taken of and almost all stones have the section etched on -- something I've never seen before. However, they lack on vital info. Guess it's up to us to set it straight! :) Happy 2016~Kimberly

Added by Kimberly on Dec 31, 2015 5:44 PM

Hello Eric - I'm curious where you got the info for Cathedral. There are so many names wrong that it seems very unusual. Is this info you obtained from the cemetery itself? Kimberly

Marian Kwiatkowski
Thanks you so very much for your research. I have input the info on Find a Grave and also on my tree at Ancestry.

John C. Crowley
The old grave map of the graves that were moved from Delaware Ave back to the current soldiers GAR area has a notation under John's name: "Removed 5-19-1922 Silverbrook Cemetery". Do you have any confirmation or information on this notation? I say this because his current grave in W & B is not identifiable. He was a member of Co. C, 1st Delaware Cavalry. Respond to:

Harriett Pfisterer/Pfister Silverbrook
Hello Eric,

I got a message that I had created a duplicate for Harriett Pfisterer memorial #145222080. The other memorial is yours memorial #113295865. I am moving the photo I have to yours and deleting mine. I wanted to let you now since the monument has the name spelled differently than the obituary you have posted. I am not sure which is correct.
