Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in the "Fairmount" and "Brewerytown" sections of Philadelphia now known as the "Art Museum" area and I now live in Philadelphia's Greater Northeast. I began tracing my family history in 2003 starting with just a handful of names and bits of information on maybe two generations. Now my extended family tree has thousands of names and grows every week.
I discovered that my great grandfather William H. Carpenter served in the Civil War(Pa.186th Infantry Co."D"),he was stationed at Fort Mifflin guarding the City of Philadelphia. His younger brother Pvt. James Knox Polk Carpenter was "accidentally shot by a comrade's gun" outside of Petersburg, VA just two weeks before the end of the war. I also found several great grand uncles and a cousin who were well-known Catholic priests in Philadelphia. I also found that I had a Great Aunt who was an Immaculate Heart of Mary Nun for over 50 years, and a cousin who was also an Immaculate Heart of Mary Nun. Two extended family members were also members of that same order of nuns. My maternal grandfather lost two siblings in the influenza epidemic of 1918 which hit Philadelphia particularly hard.
Most of the names I have added to Find A Grave belong to members of my extended family tree or names I have found during my research of my family. Many of the surnames are the same as my family surnames but I am not sure if they are connected yet.
If you would like to add information to any of the memorials I have placed, or if you have any research questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

Possibly wrong mother
Regarding the memorials you added for Anthony and Domenic Biello: 154490796 and 154490657, I don't think Florinda was their mother. Anthony's death certificate in particular which you cite the certificate number for says his mother was "Mary Guellemo" but the way you've listed it here makes it look like the certificate said his mother was Florinda, which it does not. I've done a reasonable amount of research on this family and from what I can tell, Antonio's first wife Mary Guglielmo died in 1913, and sometime later Antonio remarried Florinda. These are Mary Guglielmo's death records: and - While they don't name her husband, you can find the same Mary Guglielmo in the 1910 census with Antonio and their first two children, and Mary's parents/siblings, confirming her maiden name and parents names which match those listed on her death records. The same family is then on the 1920 census, now with children Anthony and Domenic, but missing Mary. Though it says Antonio is still married, not widowed, I think this is an error since Mary is not on the census and there are death records for her in 1913. Only in much later records is Antonio's wife named as Florinda, hence I believe they are separate women.

regarding Frank Wall
I took the picture of Frank Wall today located at Immaculate Conception. I attempted to also fix the flag there as it was extremely crooked( and I am sure that shows by the photo) but the ground is hard still a bit... along with being completely uneven, so i figured it was best to let it be for now. His grave is located directly behind the church. Hope it helps!

Thomas Barry New Cathedral
Hi, I think the Thomas Barry buried at New Cathedral must be another man from the one you mention. The Thos J Barry in the obit is my mother's grandfather, and he definitely died in 1916, but the one at New Cathedral died in 1907. I will check elsewhere, but I believe my mother's family is mostly in Holy Sepulchre.

RE: Rachael Carpenter Potts
Hi! My brother-in-law is the great-grandson of Rachel Carpenter Potts. I have a good bit of info on the Potts Family, and my bro-in-law and sister have inherited some family items they are trying to identify. I don't remember which people those things are for now.

I have some information on in a private tree. I also have a hand-typed family tree on the Potts/Carpenter/Huber/Tremper family tree. I'd be happy to share what I have with you.

You can contact me at and I will send you a copy of the family tree and some other information.

I don't have parents for Rachel, do you? That would be exciting.

wall plot
I found a stone marked wall today at immaculate conception cemetery in Allentown pa but there are no first names or dates or anything else on the stone. I have two photos I took but did not want to post them without knowing if they are indeed of frank. the headstone sits all by itself. there was one other wall in a different section but not frank.

Thought perhaps you'd like to add that the mother of Neil b. 1851 who died 1909 was Ann Mansley. She born England and his fhater Neil was born Ireland

Not related to me but had the death record with the info...B. MOrris

Emma (Cone) Logue
Hi Bill,

I was hoping that perhaps you could link the parents of Emma Logue (my grandmother) to her memorial. Her father, Patrick Cone is #26627759 and her mother, Margaret (Carney) Cone is #26627787. Just want to keep the family altogether! Thank you!

Mary Mahoney Farr
Hi Kramer,

I am researching Mary Farr (nee Mahoney), as I believe her and her husband, William, are the parents of one of my ancestors (also named William Farr). Most signs point to my Mary Farr being the one who was tragically hit by a train, EXCEPT for an obituary that was published around the time of her death which lists her husband as John. Is there any way you can confirm the information you wrote on Mary Mahoney Farr's grave page (at Cathedral Cemetery)? Obviously the name John could have been a misprint, or William Farr could've gone by John, but I don't want to take something as fact until I have concrete proof (like, for instance, her being buried next to a William Farr).

Thanks in advance for your time!
