I was born in New York City but now live in Philadelphia. I have been doing family history research since 2003. This led me to Find A Grave, where I was able to find some graves of ancestors and request photos of others. While photographing graves of people I was researching, I began to take pictures of other graves in the area. I try to limit my photos to older headstones. I realize that at some point in time, someone cared deeply for these people. I hope that by adding this information to Find A Grave I am preserving some family history for others. If you have any questions on these names, please feel free to reach out to me. Anyone who wishes to add information, correct or remove a memorial that I placed, please use the "Edit" tab or e-mail me. Please reference Find A Grave in the subject line.
RE: My grandmother Yes, thank you, Susan, I would appreciate it if you transfer her memorial to me. I have used Ancestry for several years and maintain about a dozen trees but I can see how helpful Findagrave can be. The notes you included for my grandmother were of special help because it confirmed the church that would have been their parish. So again my heartfelt thanks.
I am searching for a cemetery named Bryn Athyn in Southampton, Bucks, Pa. where Rev. Thomas Stark Harris (1858-1940)and his wife Eva Marie Bradley (1863-1937)are supposed to be buried (according to obits). I would like to add them to Findagrave. Are you familiar with Bryn Athyn Cemetery? I am thinking that perhaps the name has changed since my ancestors were buried. I am hoping that you may be able to help.
My grandmother Hello, Sue--I just wanted to thank you for posting a memorial for my grandmother, Gladys Reilly. I only recently came across it and appreciated the reference to her obituary. You inspired me to start adding family grave sites to Findagrave; I have now linked Gladys to her husband and daughter and am awaiting word if the link to her son's grave was accepted. Thanks again. Dorothy
