Mary Hollcroft
First, thank you for taking the time to put this information on Find-A-Grave. We appreciate you!

I do have the same death date as you for Mary Hollcroft....10 May 1845.
In my family's papers I have the birth date 17 Aug. 1827...and that her nickname was Pollie. I do not have any documentation for it.

Frederick E Peterson
Hi, was wondering if you could tell me more about Frederick Elmer Peterson (#6578451), such as where he was born and who his spouse was? I am researching my mother's side of the family and am looking at Peterson's in NJ. Thanks for anything you can share! Pam

RE: History
Thank you so much for the details you offered about Ms. Fenimore. I've added them to her memorial page, which you can review via this URL: Unfortunatley, I did not know her personally. I only entered a memorial for her from her obituary, which appeared in the local newspaper. She certainly seems to have been a very interesting person. Thank you again!

RE: Joseph Hutton
Dear Gary:
I live near his cemetery and got an email about your recent photo request. I took a look at his memorial and noted that his places of birth and death were listed only as Pennsylvania, and I'm very familiar with the Philadelphia death certificate search at FamilySearch, so I thought I could easily add some further info. I'm not related or anything, if that's what you were wondering.
Best regards,
