Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy writing and sharing my research with others. Contact me through Find A Grave if interested in my information or wanting to share. Thank you.

Please do not claim a photo request for several weeks and then mysteriously "unclaim" it. This deters others from taking the photo.

Please do not Photoshop, or "clean-up" my photos and then re-post them on my memorials. Thanks.

When submitting "corrections" to memorials for birthdates, etc., please cite your source for this information. Changes will not be made without providing evidence.

If you do not receive a reply from me, it may be because you did not provide an email to contact you. I don't always like to leave a public message when responding.

I maintain memorials for all Philadelphia Police Officers that died in the line-of-duty and those Brothers buried in the Soldiers' Home burial Lot at Mount Moriah Cemetery (Yeadon, Pa.) to embrace "the Warrior Ethos of honoring the sacrifice of those fellow Soldiers who died in service to our Nation."

I claim copyright for my research and photographs. It is copyright infringement for others to use my materials without my knowledge or permission. It is best to contact me via email and request permission.

John Edwin Pfeiffer
Photo in his memorial, with "unidentified" woman - she is Eddie's wife, Frances Deignan Pfeiffer. She preceeded him in death, June 3 1963. Frances is my Aunt on my maternal side.

Officer John Colonna
Hi again, I took a photo of Officer Colonna's gravesite today but unfortunately, there is a huge bush type tree growing over his grave and covering half of his headstone. I'm going to post the two photos, but I can remove one or both if you don't want them. It seems his birthdate is incorrect on your memorial page and even in the newspaper actually.

RE: Daniel Meehan
Thank you for responding. It helps to ask questions because I never thought of asking the office, which probably would have been obvious to others. Thank you again!

Daniel Meehan
I took a new photo with Daniel's flat marker cleaned up as best as I could get it. I wasn't happy with the first one, but I hope it is correctly upright. I was wondering why, while there are tons of flags on veterans' markers in Holy Cross, there seem to still be tons without them. The ones who have flags seem to have a flag holder. I want to buy flags and when I see graves un-flagged, I could place one in the ground. I wouldn't want to be disrespectful of the vet or the flag so I was hoping to get your opinion? Would it in any way, be disrespectful?

Samuel Harrison Hewitt
Thank you for this beautiful memorial to my grand uncle. Could you add the following relationship links to his memorial.

His Parents
Joseph Hurwitz buried Har Nebo Cemetery 78859168
Jannie Tractenburg Hurwitz buried Har Nebo

His siblings:
Mary Hurwitz Salzstein buried Montfiore 79419406
Louis Hurwitz buried Greenwood Memorial Park 79576475

There are other siblings that I have not as yet found. They are Minnie Hurwitz b 1895, Fanny Hurwitz born 1895, Morris Hurwitz born 1899 and Bella Hurwitz Green born 1905. I have no idea why his surname was changed to Hewitt. It has puzzled me for ages
