Permission to use photos
Will you kindly give me permission to use the photos you have made of the headstones for Kate M Congabel (Find A Grave Memorial# 79681836), and her brother and sister in law & child (Matthew F. 79681837 and Eliza 79681838 Congabel, and child Nellie 79681839), all on one headstone?

Thank you so much for establishing these memorials.

My misunderstanding
Hello Again Donald,

I just realized that you took a photo of the area of the burial.

Thank you.

I thought the first email was telling me that there was no record of the burial at all, so disregard anything that does not make sense.

Thank you again.

John McEntee
Hello Donald Degnan,

Thank you for doing the leg work and checking this entry.

Is there another, different cemtery that you would deduce from this obituary?

IF I am related to this person, it will be very distant - at this time I am just trying to make the connection to see if there is a family tree link.

The only thing I really know is that at this time Philadelphia was suffering from the influenza pandemic, and burials were happening as fast as possible.

Even if the office does not have John McEntee listed, I am going to leave this memorial using the obituary information. Perhaps the office has the name mispelled or misfiled, etc. Maybe he's just lost, for now.

Thank you for checking.

Gaye Hill
