Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on family genealogy since 1970. As a way to pass forward all the help I was given, I will attempt to locate and photo graves at local cemeteries.

Church cemeteries are usually willing to help but are often not there everyday or are only there part of the day.

When requesting photos in large cemeteries, Please include complete plot information. A large cemetery is usually willing to look up the plot information for a relative but may be reluctant to do that for a non-relative.

Philadelphia Memorial Park is huge (100 acres) and includes graves from cemeteries that were moved from Philadelphia.

Valley Forge Memorial Gardens encompasses about 81 acres is another cemetery that needs complete plot information. A section name or number is a tremendous help.


Potential problems:
1. Philadelphia Memorial Park: If a grave was moved from another cemetery, chances are that the marker was buried with the casket. Belvue Sections and Mechanics Sections are 2 areas where that happened (8+ sections).
2. Valley Forge Memorial Gardens: In the 1960s a large sink hole appeared in one section of this cemetery. I am not sure of the disposition of the graves where the sink hole was.
3. St. Peter In the Great Valley: There are sheep in the walled in part of the cemetery to keep the grass down and manageable. They are friendly but may ruin a photo. ( I didn't have any problem with them, but someone else might.)

John G Drogan (#130364494)
Good morning Mae Thunder. I wanted to thank you for the wonderful photo of Mr. Drogan's gravemarker, that you added to his memorial on July 10. I apologize for the delay in this acknowledgement. He served in the same World War II combat outfit as did my beloved late father (the 325th GIR). Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Thank you again!

I have transferred your ancestor to your care.
Yes, I am related but not as directly as you are.
Ruth Cain Argo's grandparents are William and Hannah Standfield Cain and that is our connection.
Good luck and best wishes. Bobbie

The good news: the cemetery confirmed she is buried next to Thomas.

The bad news: the grave is unmarked (see photo and comment added).

I changed her death date to 1866, if you have additional info, feel free to send it along.

Thanks, LG
