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 (www.cwrtmontcopa.org) 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.

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.

RE: Victims of Exeter Train Wreck of 1899
Yes I found his memorial-thank you.

Could you either send back to me the transcription of obit or post it to Mr. Shelley's page yourself?

I would love to see each and every victim having the detailed memorials that you've done with the memorial pages under your care. The Reading Eagle wrote up such awful details, it was horrible to read, and so, so sad.
It's the least we can do for their descendants.

Victims of Exeter Train Wreck of 1899
Dear Sir,
I have come across a death notice from the published list of dead that does not seem to have a memorial page for this nae (Elmer E.SHELLY) on Find a grave. Since I see that you have done outstanding work in this area, I am adding his obit here in the hope that you can either, find his memorial, or create one for him. -Sincerely, Marcialyn

Transcription of obituary/death notice from the Reading Eagle, May 14, 1899, p. 2, col. 2 :

ELMER E. SHELLY was a civil engineer, and president of Hatboro Council. He was a public-spirited man, and through his efforts largely borough water and electric light plants were established. A widow survives.

Able's Brother George
Hi. I am back again. I have discovered Abel Force had a brother named George W. Force who served in the same war as Able. He died on 28, Jan 1865. Both of their names are listed on the Pheonixville war memorial. I am not sure if you have this information or if you can find any additional information. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks
