|Bio and Links|
Explorer, Photographer, Historian. I enjoy exploring my city (Philadelphia) and discovering its lost history. I have recently become interested in my family genealogy. Doing research, I have discovered that I come from two long Philadelphia bloodlines, the Gilbert (arrived with William Penn in 1683) and Webster (settled in New England circa 1630) lines. Both families came from England, and have been living in the Philadelphia area since at least 1700. Any information or help regarding these two lines is always welcome and appreciated.|
Southeastern Pennsylvania contains many colonial and Victorian cemeteries, and a large number of vanished ones. The Quaker city does not have a great track record of relocating its historic cemeteries. Many still lay undisturbed beneath neighborhood playgrounds, and some have vanished altogether. Putting together pieces of Philadelphia's long-buried past is a passion of mine.

Thank you for the memorials (# 91450554) for Fred Greensmith and his wife Sarah Haigh. This helped my family research as it gave validity to them having moved to Philadelphia, PA from Yorkshire England. Trudy

The picture you posted on William Freihofer's memorial (#14285383), is from the wrong location. There is a William A. Freihofer buried with Charles Freihofer at Greenlawn 32, where your photo was taken, but he was an Army ordnance sergeant and born 1887. The bio of William (#14285383) says he became president of a baking company in 1900.

Your memorial is a duplicate of #11595428 which was entered August 23, 2005.
Wonderful job on the gravestone photos for Thomas, Edward, and Francis. I like that they are hd and in black and white.
Thanks again for the photo and information. I have sent the photo with Mary Ann's maiden name to a researcher in England and we have been able to solve a long-standing mystery, thanks to your help. I am so delighted that you were able to photograph in Mount Moriah, under such deplorable conditions. There are a number of Fullaways at Mount Moriah and we are trying to solve another mystery there. Thanks again!
Thank you so much for the wonderful photo. You have given me Mary Ann's maiden name which I been searching for quite a while. Liz
Thank you for adding the cemetery photo for Cedar Hill, that was much needed.

Any photographs would be welcome. I'm afraid at the rate it is deteriorating there will sonn be nothing left.

Thank you so much for the gravestone picture. I am curious how you got into the cemetery for I understand the phone has been cut off and it is under lock and key,
