Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy since I was in my twenties making it over thirty years.

I am interested in finding my family roots and sometimes I have been sent on wild goose chases that have led me to distant relatives and/or other interesting non-related individuals.

I have researched for others and have added pictures of graves that I find interesting and then try to find out all I can about the people and write their story for the friends and ancestors to enjoy.

Researching is like putting a jigsaw puzzle back together. The missing piece or piece that doesn't quite fit makes life interesting.

Good afternoon. I just wanted to drop you a note because I have been photographing BG Doyle Cemetery and found your father's marker today. I have posted it to his memorial, along with a plaque that honors Army veterans. The plaque is located in the ceremonial area of the cemetery. I'm sorry for your loss.

Hi Gwen
Like some of my McLaughlin's they also couldn't afford a headstone, I'm glad I could be of some help. Good luck in your research....JP

RE: thank you
Hi, Gwen. There are indeed some Dunphy stones in St. Mary's of the Assumption Cemetery, but none that I can find for Thomas and Margaret. I've combed that cemetery three or four different times looking for those and other requested stones, and there are several that just don't seem to be there. I suspect those people might instead be buried in the much larger St. Mary's Cemetery on Bridge Road, North Elm Street and Hatfield Street in Northampton. Have you checked with the keepers of that cemetery?

Michael Dunphy
Hi Gwen,
My name is Sue Sweeney. I am a descendant of Annie Bishop's sister, Jane. I visited Michael Dunphy's grave last year. Annie and Jane, along with their mother, Mary Jane Brown Bishop, are buried together with Jane's husband, James Sweeney, in Holy Cross Cemetery, Brooklyn. Annie and Jane's father Robert Bishop is buried on Staten Island, not far from where I grew up I have a photo of the Michael Dunphy grave if you would like it.

RE: dunphy
I have a Margaret Dunphy (Brooklyn, NY), 1902-1963. Her parents John J Dunphy 1869-1942 (Brooklyn and buried in Farmingdale Long Island) and Magaret ?-1921. John J Dunphy parents are John Dunphy and Margart Walsh. Does that help? Does it match your family?

Reminder for Hannah Hazlett
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Ephram Blackford
Hi Gwen. Can we add a relation for Ephram Blackford in the Hillside Cemetery and link him to his father Nathan Blackford? These are my great-grandfathers (Ephram 4x, Nathan 5x). Thank you so much, you've done a lot of work!
