Michael M Miter, Jr #158788020
I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match up the people in the stories and articles to the memorials here on F-A-G. I believe I have found a story regarding the brave wife of Michael Miter, Jr. His death certificate lists her name as Elizabeth. It appeared in the Evening Public Ledger (Philadelphia, PA) on 10/11/1916.

I thought you might find it interesting.

Ran across this old news article regarding the grave marker for Samuel Lukens - cherish the photo posted in his memorial: “Tombstone Stolen from Tennis-Lukens Cemetery” By Tony Di Domizio, June 3, 2012, Montgomeryville-Lansdale Patch.
The grave marker, valued at $1,000, was taken from the grave of Samuel Tennis. Crime Watch are investigating the theft of a historic grave marker from the Tennis-Lukens Cemetery on Allentown Road. Tennis-Lukens Cemetery is located behind the former Sears Hardware at Towamencin Shopping Village on Allentown Road. The cemetery is open to the public.
The headstone was stolen between May 1 and May 17, 2012, police said. The headstone stolen belonged to the grave of Samuel Tennis. Police estimated the value of the gravestone at $1,000.
Contact Towamencin Township Police with any information on the theft or whereabouts of the grave marker at 215-368-7606. Callers can remain anonymous."

RE: Isreal W. Tennis
I took a picture of his name on the Cadet Monument in the cemetery. I'm still waiting to hear back to find out if he is indeed buried there or if its just a cenotaph.

RE: Isreal W. Tennis
I went back today to look again under Dennis but not finding anything. Another submitter let me know today that memorial info is from the cadet monument in the cemetery. It's my understanding that cadets and faculty who died while at the academy in earlier times have their names placed on it. I don't that it necessarily means that they're buried there though. I'm going to do my best to find out for you.

RE: Zell families at Mount Moriah
Hi Nelson, Unfortunately I know very little about the Zell family. I am still researching them. I just recently found out my 2Nd great grandmother was a Zell. That came about because it was on 2 of her 4 son's death certificates. My Aunt and Cousins always heard her maiden name was Valentine. Then we came across a marriage record for her mother (my 3rd great grandmother) and Jacob Zell. I just haven't much time to to research further. But if I come across a connection to the Merion Meeting Burial Grounds I will let you know☺.
