|Bio and Links|
I started researching my family history after my mother passed away in 2011. Fortunately for me she had everything written down so it gave me a good head start. My wife did not have much on her family so I started looking to see how much I could find on her family.|
I found out early on the only way to do this was to walk the entire cemetery and try to link each person back. Doing it this way I was able to find relatives that I wouldn't have been able find otherwise. Family plots give a lot of clues about the family that are not obvious otherwise.
I am happy to add any family information since it makes it easier for others to find the memorial, any bio information should be written so it can be copied over. Please use the edit tab and the Suggest a correction link when sending information or requesting a transfer, it makes it easier and reduces the chance of an error. If you are looking for a response to any questions, please provide an email address.
Any gravestone pictures I've posted may be used for non-commercial use, family trees, Ancestry, etc. Credit should be noted with the picture.
On Bio's MCOI is short for Morning Call Obituary Index. EEOI is short for Easton Express Obituary Index. PADI is short for Pennsylvania Department of Health Death Index.

|Dustin Snyder||Matilda C Reese (149361157)|
I've found out more information about Matilda Reese. For a while she's been a big question mark in my family tree. Having tracked down her children's, I've been able to piece together a bit more of her history. Her second husband was my great-grandfather's second wife.
To help anyone else, could you add the following to her bio, please:
Matilda had three husbands. Philip Smith, Francis Snyder and George Reese Sr.
|Dustin Snyder||Mamie Scholl (149364123)|
First, thanks for all your work. I really appreciate your efforts.
I've submitted an edit for Mamie Scholl (149364123) to correct her maiden name.
Can you also edit her bio? Her parents were Philip Smith and Matilda Rockel. I've confirmed this from both her obituary and death certificate.
I'm not sure who Catherine Rockel was.

|E Finn||RE: Sacred Heart Cemetery|
Great to hear from you re Sacred Heart. I encourage you (from afar) to consider working your magic!
I don't have a map, but I can provide some info. The main stone entry is on Fullerton Ave. In the day it was a grand entrance centered on a large cross within the grounds. I believe that the cemetery is bordered to the north by Mundy Lane, and by Catasauqua Road on the east. It is big.
The four other cemeteries which I believe are to the north with access from Mundy are: Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery; Resurrection Cemetery, Polish National Catholic Church; St. Michael's & St. Andrew's Byzantine Catholic Church Cemetery; Sons of Israel Cemetery.
When I visited Sacred Heart 15+ years ago, I used a page copied from a cemetery inventory/list I found at the Lehigh Valley Historical Society. The document has names and dates (transcribed from stones) by row number. Here's a link to the reference: http://www.lchs.museum/ChurchRecords.htm#Anchor-51540 Unfortunately the document is not on-line.
BTW, the Sacred Heart Church which owns/manages the cemetery is "up the road" at 336 N 4th in Allentown; 610-434-5171.
Thanks for giving this cemetery your consideration.

|Kelly Weirich||RE: Elmer I. Schneck|
Sorry, but I don't know what the beginning of this conversation was ....
|Kelly Weirich||Elmer I. Schneck|
Is this Elmer the son of Samuel and Fianna (Gruver) Schneck?
|Darleen Miller||Eleanor Hartman|
Thank you for the edits and photo. If she is your relative, please let me know and I will transfer management to you.
HUGE thanks for your photos of the graves of Willoughby Haffner and his mom. (I SO love that you found the grave of the mother of an old soldier.) You also made my day because Willoughby has been near and dear to my heart since I first started researching his life. Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend and, again, many thanks!
