|Tom Jennings||Moran's in St. Mary's, Gloucester|
I'd bet dollars to donuts that they are really buried in Old St. Mary's in Gloucester. That cemetery is now closed, and some of the bodies were relocated to New St. Mary's in Bellmawr.
It would have been quite a trip all the way down to Williamstown in those days, and they'd have to ride past St. Mary's in Gloucester, now renamed Old St. Mary's.

Dear Marianne, I was wondering if you knew who Jennifer"s parents are in the Wheaton plot
|Mike O||John Alting|
I noticed that you entered a memorial for John Alting - Find A Grave Memorial# 144501862. It was not a bad guess to enter it in Pottstown Cemetery, however he was actually buried in Shenkel which is across the river in Chester County. Based on this you should delete your memorial and correct the entry in shekel which is Find A Grave number 32949729. It has no dates and his father is buried there as well (John Sr.). I know this because I have done some research and have copies of the obit and the funeral notice. Thanks. Mike.

Bobby was my cousin. He was born 4 OCT 1946 in Norristown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania USA. His father was my uncle Robert Milton Bowker. Bobby died in King of Prussia. It was at the old Valley Forge Diner. I was a waitress there at the time. He was a dish washer/ janitor. The owner would let him sleep in the dining room if he missed the last bus to Norristown. The diner was open 24 hrs but the dining room only for lunch and dinner. He had made himself a meal and went into the dining room. He choked on a bone. He was found dead.

|Bob Thomas||RE: 1906 wreck -- Stewart -- should be Steuart|
You have the spelling down correctly, but even the Wenonah Whisperings fails to keep it right -- but at the time Wenonah had only about 100 houses so people in the borough would have no trouble sorting that detail out.
I can not find The Woodbury Daily Times for 1906 on line anywhere. I visited the Gloucester County Historical Society in Woodbury, NJ and viewed their microfilms of the newspaper. Mrs. Barbara Price, who works at that office was a tremendous help in locating information.
|Bob Thomas||RE: 1906 wreck -- Mrs. Stewart and the adopted boy|
I was unable to find an obituary for the two per se. There was a mention of their bodies being brought back to Wenonah in the Wenonah Whisperings column of the Woodbury Daily Times on a few occasions.
Oct. 31, 1906
" Mr. Stewart was not killed as reported but was found in the hospital by Mrs. Truncer and Mr. and Mrs. Baylies. He is considerably bruised up, but will recover, and is expected home today. He had a remarkable escape from death. As the train pulled onto the drawbridge Mr. Stewart stood up in the aisle of the first car to put on his overcoat, and as he ran one of his arms through the sleeve of the coat, his hand struck on the bell cord, and just at that instant the car went under the water, and he clutched the bell cord and found his way to the end of the car, and that is all he remembers, he then became unconscious. He supposes that he was washed from the end of the car and came to the surface, and rescued by somebody and the water rolled out of him. He did not see Mrs. Stewart and his adopted son as the car was dark as midnight. Mrs. Stewart and little boy were found outside of the car that was wrecked and buried in the debris. There bodies will be brought home today."
" The bodies of Mrs. Stewart and the little boy, Stewart DeKlyne, were brought home at 7:09 o'clock last evening. Mr. Stewart came at 1:22 o'clock in the afternoon. He had a slight limp and walked as if he was weak, but how could he be anything else, after such a nerve racking affair."

Government list still has misspellings as in Stewart for Steuart.
I wonder if Robert Brodie is correct instead of Brodin.
|Bob Thomas||1906 Wreck -- Railroads reports 55 dead in 1907 report|
I count 55 dead in the list reported in the 1907 book.

|Bob Thomas||Virtual Cemetery for 1906 AC Train Wreck: William Edwards -- photo -- date of death|
It has been interesting learning about the wreck and the stories of the dead and injured. Have you seen the list from the 1907 NJ Govt Report on Canals and Railroads?
I am trying to sort it out -- they just listed the people in a paragraph instead of a table and they have Walter Scott - who was the motorman listed as a passenger -- perhaps he technically was a passenger since he was due to be relieved in Millville but chose to continue on to Atlantic City to be able to visit with his family.
The title of the book, which is free ebook, is
The Annual Statement of the Railroads and Canal Companies .....
author is state comptroller of the treasury.
I will share the list when done.
