Bucci Family Members
Thank you for your research and information Nicola, Maria and Pasquale Bucci. I have been trying to find information on them for years!! Are there any additional Bucci family members at St Patricks Cemetery in Norristown?

Nellie Rhinehart Davis #171322954
I believe this memorial is a duplicate of #25504423.
Fannie Winetta (Nettie) Rinehart, daughter of John W Rinehart & Margaret Hilton, married Marvin R Davis. The death cert was indexed incorrectly on Ancestry as Nillie or Nellie. And the surname, despite being misspelled in many documents, is actually Rinehart. Fannie was my 2nd cousin 2x removed.

Treemount Cemetery
Hi, I'm wondering about this cemetery, the name, it's address, etc. Is this cemetery located at Sandy Street and Tremont Avenue in Norristown, near a playground?

I ran across a death certificate today and the place of burial was recorded as "Treemont" Cemetery, and thinking that it was a misspelling of "Tremont" since Tremont is also the name of a street in Norristown, I looked for a Tremont Cemetery without success. "Treemount" was the closest I could find.

I can't walk well enough any more to explore or transcribe this cemetery on foot, but I would like to add a memorial or 3 and want to make sure I have the right cemetery. Also, there is no address listed for this cemetery on Find A Grave.

Have you seen this article in The Times Herald from 2001?
I'm thinking that someone ought to update this cemetery listing on Find A Grave --an address, a little history of the cemetery, etc.

Roberts Cemetery/Red Hill
You know way more than I do about this.
I questioned whether the cemetery should be named Roberts Cemetery, as it now is on Find A Grave, or Jonathan Roberts Burial Grounds, which is what the stone sign says. Someone other than me created the cemetery so that they could create the memorial to Jonathan Roberts, and I believe they are the ones who named it Roberts Cemetery.

Would you like to do the honors and seek the AKA designation, and decide whether to ask that the name be changed? I think the background on the fact that it was not only a family burial ground but also had the other purpose would be good info for the main page, and you could word it more accurately.

Let me know.

RE: James America
Hi, Thanks for that info. Is it all one cemetery or two different ones? All I saw when I was there was the Roberts family. This explains why other memorials are showing up. If the names are considered to be interchangeable we ought to seek an "also known as" designation.

No, I am in Clark County, Ohio. Just a little bit away from your location. Alternate spellings-Endsley, Ansley. William C. Ensley, and Julia ???.
William C. Ensley and Sarah Elizabeth Gordon are the ancestors I am looking for. She married an Anderson after Ensley. Thank you.

Pvt. Samuel Kay
I am the great, great granddaughter of Pvt Kay. I have found no evidence in my genealogical research to indicate a relationship with any of the people listed on the photo of the memorial. Samuel became a citizen in 1858 and married Mary Ogden in Conshohoekone,PA on July 12, 1859. According to the "History of the 51st Regiment" Samuel Kay was the only one in his company killed at South Mountain. Bodies from the battle of South Mountain were relocated to Antietam National Cemetery. I found no listing there for Samuel Kay although there are several unknown graves from the 51st Regiment. I can upload a photo of Samuel onto the memorial site but am unsure if this is appropriate.

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
