RE: Righter/Ferguson
Actually, the photo that I have does not show their names on the stone. I have been looking for my great-grandfathers stone for several years and had narrowed it down to a very small plot within Leverington (the cemetery is not well maintained, so trying to find sites based on the cemetery plot map is quite difficult).

Two years ago I decided I had found the site and began to dig in the ground and found a gravestone. However, I was greatly disappointed after uncovering it to find there was no engraving on it. I took photos of the stones on either side to check my records upon returning home to Seattle.

Imagine my horror when I realized I had dug up the wrong gravestone! According to the records, Lot #5, Section O of Division C was purchased by Harry Righter on 12/24/1917 and the following individuals are buried in that site:
John Miller 61 yrs old - 12/13/1917
Eliza J Ferguson 69 yrs old - 12/26/1918
John Ferguson 68 yrs old - 1-21-1918.

If your email address is still a good email address, I would be happy to send you the photo of the site/stone I found. Otherwise, I would be happy to post on Find A Grave if you prefer.

I'm not sure if this is still a active account or if someone else is working on this family. I have information regarding the burial site of Eliza J and John Ferguson at Leverington Cemetery in Philadelphia which I would be delighted to share.

Anyone interested?

Cleveland Calvary Request
Just a friendly mid June reminder that we need plot info to fill your Cleveland Calvary request(s). We have less than 500 requests left but plot info for only 6% of those, having already filled the rest with plot info. We can't ask for plot info for more than 3 requests per week. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot info. We'd really appreciate it and will fill your request(s) soon after getting plot info. Thank you!

You've put in request(s) at Calvary in Cleveland. Several of us are actively working to clear the more than 755 requests. With 400,000 burials and 300 acres, if you could please obtain plot information AND a plot map one of us will be more likely to be able to fill the request, as the office will only give out a little information to each person. The office phone number is (216) 641-7575. On my page I have the plot maps listed that we already have which is quite a few. If the burial is in one of those sections we don't need another map, just the plot info on the request.

You can try to tell them you'll be visiting when they're closed, etc. So far everyone who's called has been successful in having a map mailed, a few e-mailed. If you get one let me know and I'll give you my e-mail address. With thousands of graves per section a plot map would be VERY helpful. Without plot information it's basically impossible.

RE: All Saints Ground
glad to help you in your search !!! all saints parish is located at 2651 Buckius Street ( on the corner of Buckius and E. Thompson St ) there is a small church cemetery behind the church. it is fenced in but you can gain access by just going to the rectory and asking them to open the gate. the church itself is still open but the school has been closed for several years. most students that attend catholic school attend Pope John Paul Regional Catholic Church which is located on the grounds of St. John Cantius Parish on Almond Street. with the rising costs to attend catholic school in Philadelphia many people are opting to send their children elsewhere and this has caused many consolidations of parish churches and schools.
i was raised in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia and attented the Polish parish of St. Adalbert until 7th grade and then moved up to northeast philadelphia and and attentend Maternity BVM and Archbishop Ryan High School. I still live in Philadelphia in the Mayfair section near Cottman Ave and Roosevelt Blvd.
My mom's side of the family ( german ) wolf are buried at All Saints. my 2nd great grandfather and his wife, 3 sons, 1 daughter and her husband. the rest of her immediate family are buried at Most Holy Redemmer Cemetery located a few blocks up the street from all saints. They came here to the US in the early 1850's although i am not sure where they lived. Father George Wolf who is buried at All Saints founded the German Parish - Our Lady Help Of Christian located on Allegheny Ave right across the street from the Nativity parish ( where the Irish went to school ) and of course St Adalbert where the Polish such as myself went.
If you want next time i go down there i can try and locate the grave you are looking for and get you a picture. Just send me the name of the relatives that are buried there and your address to send it to you. Hope you are enjoying retirement in Florida, my daughter moved to Jacksonville, fl about 2yrs ago and is a zoo keeper ( reptiles ) at the Jacksonville Zoo and loves it. for me it is too hot and humid !!!! hope i have been of some assistance. Take care .
