Bio and Links
Bio Photo I seem to have a propensity for finding lost cemeteries, and just end up literally stumbling upon them in my travels. When I do find them, I research them and put what I find up here for the benefit of others---such as with the Phil'a Boys Protectory Cemetery.

An archivist by profession, I am quite good at finding those hidden records, so if there is anything you have interest in, do let me know and I shall endeavor to find you an answer. And if you need my sources/would like more information, do not hesitate to ask!

Should you desire to have the management of a grave transferred to your control, I will be happy to oblige.

RE: Rachel Hutton
I found a record from New Garden and posted it, it mentions her birth date... I removed her date of passing and noted in Bio why and what i do know of her from records... she got in a bit of trouble, as she was seen in the company of a married man, who was not a Friend.... I will search for her tomorrow under the birth year of 1788 and surname of Bernard and see what turns up.
Nite,
L

Ancestry Posting
This is from Ancestry.... I may have thought this was verification of where she was "Bu" (buried)

This a example of how Ancestry has to be looked at all the time for error as well ;)

I just found the Kennett record you may have been referencing and I need to take a REALLY good look, as I may have thought "Cu" was "Bu"..... please pass on what you find, I would rather delete than have wrong information out there.
Blessings,

Hello,
I am grateful you wrote and also try to be accurate as possible, as I know FindaGrave gets picked up as a source.... I am cutting and pasting your note below :)

I think you may be misinterpreting the records youre viewing. In this case, the record of Kennett MM from which you pull this says she departed for New Garden MM -- that does not mean she died on that date; rather, it means she transferred to that meeting, having moved etc.

I have no doubt you are correct about me not being clear or even having errors, but I didnt get the information from Kennett MM, but from New Garden... I now put the source of my entries in the note section..... I dont see where the departed for is on this memorial.... maybe one of the others you looked at that I need to address?
In Appreciation ....

Ercildoun vs Fallowfield
ahhhh, going crazy. Findagrave has Ercildoun, Fallowfield Cemetery and Fallowfield Orthodox Cemetery.

I think Fallowfield and Ercildoun are the same place, and the Orthodox is separated from them.

The CCHS has a plot map which calls it Ercildoun & Fallowfield Meeting.

Do you think on Find A Grave that Ercildoun and Fallowfield should be merged (there are dups) and the Orthodox left alone? And if so, what should the combined cemetery be called?

I'm thinking of driving over there and getting the answer directly from the meeting.

Bartol Family
I want to thank you for posting the info on my Bartol family line. I have been researching this family for a long time and was so happy to see the death info and also the memorial for Catherine. I was wondering if I could please have a transfer of her memorial if you are not related. I tried to send it through the edit tab and it kept wanting me to click on the robot but it didn't come up so I'm not sure if you got it or not. Thanks again for everything.
