|Bio and Links|
I was born in Riverside, Burlington County New Jersey and spent much of my first ten years there. My father died in WWII having never seen me. My step-father was in the Navy so we spent a lot of time traveling around. I graduated from high school at the Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, joined the Navy in 1961, came out to California in 1963 and have been here ever since. I have been married twice, have three children and eleven grandchildren. My second wife Sandy and I have known each other since we were five years old and have been married since 2006. I have been doing my family genealogy since 2010 and a member of Find A Grave for over four years now.|
I am interested in families in the Philadelphia and Burlington County, NJ areas with last names of Freck/Frech (originally from Germany mid 1800s), Broderson/Brodersen (Denmark), Stecher (originally from Germany mid 1800s) and Hirst, originally from England. Hirst were prominent in the cigar business in Philadelphia. Additionally, I am working on my wife's family, Wetherell and Goodwin in New Hampshire.
If you see a picture of a gravestone I have taken and want to use it, by all means copy it and use as needed. If you see a family members memorial that I have created and you would like to manage it, just ask.

Hello Mr. Hirst,
Hi! Hope this finds you well. I have a question but will apologize in advance for the lengthy explanation that leads up to it.
First, I saw that you have taken a cemetery photo of West Laurel Hill Cemetery. It just so happens that I found an Amanda France interred there along with her husband, Edward W. and son Alva.
Amanda's maiden name was Burhouse, but her mother was Emma Hirst, daughter of Amos and Ann Hirst. Her death certificate notes that she was b. 8/26/1830 England and d. 4/19/1914 in Philadelphia. The W. Yorkshire, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1910 show that she was baptized on 4/3/1831. The DC has the burial place as Norristown.
I believe Emma's husband, James Burhouse, died before 1900, as Emma was living with her daughter and son-in-law, Edward France, in the 1900 US Census.
When I look for cemeteries in Norristown, I see Montgomery Cemetery and Riverside. However, I also noticed that James and Emma Burhouse's son, Alfred Burhouse, is buried at Montgomery Cemetery.
I am trying to determine where James and Emma (Hirst) Burhouse were buried. I did not find them on findagrave but wondered if perhaps they are buried at Montgomery Cemetery since their son Alfred is.
I was not sure if you were aware of Emma Hirst, or if you know the Norristown area or either cemetery. It looks like the Montgomery Cemetery will assist someone in finding/locating a family member interred there, but I am also not related.
It appears my 2nd great-grandfather lived with that family briefly when he immigrated from England to America. I can only guess he knew them before leaving but am trying to trace their histories.
Any thoughts on where Emma Hirst Burhouse might be buried if her DC indicates Norristown?
Many thanks for reading this. Any thoughts or comments would be helpful. Thanks, and thank you for all you do for Find-A-Grave.

|Barbara Wineinger||Frederick Ferdinand Weed|
Fred was originally buried in 498-2. The family bought 4 plots (1-4) and buried him there in 1913.
According to cemetery books his wife Eva Gaddie Weed was given the deeds to those plots. Then Eva remarried sometime before 1938. Eva's mother died in 1938. Sometime after her death the Weed, Schultz and Gaddie crypt was built. Mother Lucinda Gaddie was interned here in 1086 - 4. Fred was moved from 498-2 in 1940 and re interned in 1086-3. Eva's 2nd husband William John Schultz died in 1945 and was interned in 1086-5. When Eva died in 1946she was interned in 1086-2.
Jose told me that he would check the plate on Fred's crypt for his death date.
This all came to lite when I was contacted by a Confederate veterans group in Missouri who wanted to place a marker on his unmarked grave. They wanted to know if there were any living relatives.
Fred had 2 children, 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. So there is a possibility
that someone is still living.
|Karen G. Hill||Zula R BERRY Witcher # 136660682|
Saw the photo that you took of her headstone, by any chance was there a Elmer Kenneth Witcher buried next to her. He is her husband. Thank you for the photo, going to use on my Ancestry.com tree, I will add a message of the photo coming from you.
Thank you once again, Karen
|Alan Gordon||RE: Isaac Wetherell|
Feel free to use the pic any way you want.
|Alan Gordon||RE: Isaac Wetherell|
I added Isaac's wife, Susan later. I did't see any others, but I'll be back to Proprietor's within a couple of weeks, and I'll check for you.
|Joyce Snell||Seibert surname|
Thanks for reply. I have birth/death info on Boettler but he does not seem to be listed on Find A Grave. Do you know where he is buried and anything about their daughter, Pamela. June and Boettler divorced in 1976 and he died 3 years later. That is all the info.
|Joyce Snell||Seibert surnames|
I see that you have listed several with the surname of Seibert. I'm searching for any information on Boettler Seibert. He was the son of Arthur & Amy Seibert. Perhaps you were unaware of him. He married into my husband's line. Thanks much.
