Pletcher
drop me an email at danoh19344@hotmail.com and I'll send all the views I have of Henry's grave. The others are not near him, if they have stones at all.

Proof of Burial Location for Henry Pletcher
Daily Local News, West Chester, Chester County, Pa
May 6, 1904

PLETCHER- In East Brandywine, on May 3, 1904, Henry Pletcher, in his 64th year.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend the funeral without further notice from his late residence, Brandywine Square, on Saturday morning at 8 o'clock. To proceed to Downingtown. Mass at 10 o'clock. Interment at St. Joseph's Cemetery.

May 7, 1904

FUNERAL

This morning at 10 o'clock in St. Joseph's Church High Mass was celebrated over the remains of Henry Fletcher (sic), an old resident of East Brandywine. Funeral services were held last evening at his late home. Quite a number of the relatives and friends of the deceased gathered this morning to pay their last respects. Interment was at St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery.

-------- I am trying to get the owner to move him. BTW- according to the bio on the page, he went to Norristown, Montgomery county, to get his naturalization. If he lived in Downingtown, he would have to go to West Chester, Chester county to apply for naturalization.

Henry Pletcher @ Hopewell
Here is an email I sent to the owner of this entry. If you want to see the death certificates to which I refer, send me an email- danoh19344@hotmail.com:

I see you have a photo request in Hopewell Cemetery for the above: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=29294805

The indication on the page is that the burial is not in Hopewell Methodist. Based on the narrative you provided, I believe the attached death certificate for George Pletcher, matches the parents you mention (from which you can get his mother's maiden name). Although he died in Philadelphia, the undertaker is from Downingtown (Keim is one of the busiest homes at the time) and that the burial of the son, is in Saint Joseph's Cemetery in Downingtown.

So, having said that. I would contact Saint Joseph's Church in Downingtown to see how many of your Pletchers are buried there, and if Henry is one of them.

To me it could be that Henry converted to Catholism and his children were raised in the Faith.

Attached is also Harry Pletcher's death certificate with the same parents. I don't know which Forest Hills cemetery he is buried in, there are three in Pennsylvania in the Philadelphia region. Once you determine which one, you can add him to findagrave and link him to his parents- which I truly believe is your Henry.

Additionally, I've included Mary Connnor Pletcher's death certificate, showing she is buried in Downingtown at St. Joseph's Cemetery. The informant on that death certificate is Mrs. Cathryn White.

So, assuming the informant was the daughter, and it is, her death certificate is attached, also stating her parents match Henry and Mary Connor. There are two Hillside cemeteries in Montgomery County- you'll have to pick one and add her there on findagrave.

So, I have taken the liberty of linking Henry and Mary as husband and wife, and George as the son. You can do the same after you add Harry and Cathryn Pletcher White. All the info is there for you on the DC's.

Let me know if you plan on pursuing Henry's burial place. If not, I'll just let it drop here.

Just messing around on the cold November day. I'm not family, but am interested in Hopewell Cemetery and volunteering on findagrave.

Hello,
I saw your pictures of the front of the cemetery from 4 years ago. I can't remember the proper way to request a photo of a grave marker (!). If you are ever at Cedar Hill again, I would love to get a picture of my grandfather's first wife's family plot. She is buried with her parents. Hers was a sad story. Her plot is 186, Section 2. Thanks so much.

RE: Boehmer
I corrected Elsie's memorial.
The management of Mount Vernon does not make the records available to researchers. Also pictures are discouraged for the few visitors who gain access to the cemetery.
I am in Atlanta, GA, trying to piece together who is buried there.

RE: Mt. Auburn Cemetery
Generally, I get the information from the monuments themselves. Then I run the names through ancestry.com and see if I can find the people. I will generally not post any information unless I find three points of connection. It is possible that I have made some mistakes in regard to the additional material, but I am always happy to make corrections, or give memorials to family members.

I understand that some, but certainly not all, of the cemetery records are available on microfilm at the main branch of the Enoch Pratt Library. I haven't gone to see them yet, but I will. I want to do more research on certain individuals.

Thank you!
Hi,

Thank you so much for posting the photo of Andrew Jackson Grigsby. He is my great-great grandfather. I sent the link to my mother also and she is very happy to see the photo.
