Bio and Links
I am a lifelong resident of Conshohocken, Pa. I am an avid student of history most noteably the United States Civil War. I graduated in 1969 from the former Archbishop Kennedy High School in Conshohocken, where my interest in history was cultivated by Sr. Maria Davidica IHM in my junior year. In the past I have served as President of the Conshohocken Fire Co. No 2 and as Fire Marshal for the Borough of Conshohocken. I am the founder of the Civil War Roundtable of Montgomery County, Pa ( and Vice-President of the Historical Society of Montgomery County. I volunteer my time at Montgomery Cemetery in West Norriton Township. I like to make known the life stories of the everyday men and women of my hometown and the surrounding area, especially those who served in the Civil War.

Pvt. Samuel Kay
I am the great, great granddaughter of Pvt Kay. I have found no evidence in my genealogical research to indicate a relationship with any of the people listed on the photo of the memorial. Samuel became a citizen in 1858 and married Mary Ogden in Conshohoekone,PA on July 12, 1859. According to the "History of the 51st Regiment" Samuel Kay was the only one in his company killed at South Mountain. Bodies from the battle of South Mountain were relocated to Antietam National Cemetery. I found no listing there for Samuel Kay although there are several unknown graves from the 51st Regiment. I can upload a photo of Samuel onto the memorial site but am unsure if this is appropriate.

Thank you for this information. Before I add to his memorial please send your source references for the information and also marriage dates. Also any obituaries would be helpful.
Thank you

Colonel Joseph Corson Read
Hello Chotsie Kelly,
I found this grave! It was hidden under shubbery and inches of debris. I found 3 graves at this location. To the left of the Colonel's grave is a marker for Mima Augusta Burrin Read. Mima's parents and a child and grandchild are all located further away from the shubbery. They were not hidden. I am not sure if Mima Augusta Burrin Read is the Colonel's Wife. If she is the Colonel is buried near a lot of family. If you find out if Mima is his wife I would appreciate you letting me know. I created a memorial for Mima and the Burrins and the Harmans. I am loading photos for all of them. I believe the third grave I found may not be related to the Reads. It was for a little girl who was born in 1867 and died in 1873. Her name is Grace Olmstead. There is a memorial for her but no photo of the marker so I will add one.
