|Bio and Links|
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.

|Patricia Rohn||RE: Emma (Cone) Logue|
Thank you for linking my grandmother's parents! Hope all is going well with your research.
|Betsy Koen Morris||Neil Lafferty|
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
|Patricia Rohn||Emma (Cone) Logue|
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!
|Danielle||Mary Mahoney Farr|
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!

|pat hennessey||RE: Darmour|
You're welcome. Glad to help you out.
|Cristina||Cowan & Darmour @ Mt St Marys|
I looked for their gravestones this past weekend and could not find them. It is possible that they do not have stones because, going by their neighbors, A Montreuil Family gravestone is in Division 2, Section 3, Plot C, grave #18. And there was open space right next to the where I would imagine grave #21 is. I took a picture of the space and the neighbor to show you. I can post that if you'd like. Let me know.
