Charlotte Siter
Hey Blanche - I just added a photo for Charlotte Siter but she is not at Laurel Hill - the photo was taken at St James the Less (it is very close by). If you would like some help trying to figure out this puzzle let me know.

Thanks for the message. I have entered your birth and death dates on findagrave for this person. The photo of the stone is not a great one and next time I am over that way I will look more carefully at the stone to verify the dates as well.

Thanks again!

Hi Blanche!

Thanks so much for the additional information for Antoinette's memorial; and absolutely, if you'd like to write a bio for her, I'd be happy to add it. I've already made the other updates for you.

Thanks again!

Bill Churchman
Hi Paige, yes I have a story or two. Your dad was quite a character as you well know. I only worked for him about a year, but still that was enough to get to know him quite well. He was very direct and outspoken. This is not a private venue. Go to his memorial and hit the edit tab and send me your email address and I'll respond. Caretaker

Yes, you may use the photo of the Wadleigh stone on your Ancestry tree.

RE: General Samuel Myers Mills
Well, yes, she was the daughter of a Mills boy, but really the thing that makes it current is that her third husband just died. E-mail me if you like, for details, I don't want to post her personal info publicly.

RE: General Samuel Myers Mills
Oh, clerical errors don't need an explanation...they just happen :)

I'm not related, I was just looking into the ancestry of someone who was married to several interesting people, including one of the General's descendants.

General Samuel Myers Mills
There's a problem with the transcribed dates; if you look at the gravestone he was born 15 December 1843 (not August), and he died 8 September 1907 (not August). These dates match those given in his New York Times obituary, as well.

RE: Daniel C. Wharton
The photos are yours to do with &/or post where ever you please. I'm glad to provide them for you, simply for the very nice message you left. Sort of a "Pay-it-Forward" as it were, because I will be needing help from others in doing the same type searches.

I've spent a good bit of time at LH since November. That place can be be tough but fortunately The Wharton's were simple to locate and have a very nice view, overlooking the Schuylkill River. Your Plot information was right-on.

Best regards!

Daniel C. Wharton
Hi Blanche,

I just fulfilled your request for Daniel Clark Wharton at Laurel Hill Cemetery. While visiting my dad today at Laurel Hill, I took the opportunity to photo Daniel and the others in the family plot. There are several more Wharton's there, though one is practically illegible. You might be able to make out enough detail to figure out who they are.

You can find all the photos at the following website. I am a novice website designer and try to upload these for participants on Find-a-Grave.

When you click on the photo, it will enlarge so you can see much better detail.

Hope this helps. Have a terrific week.

Way Cool, Blanche!

With the number of entries you've provided on this family, I have to ask if you are related to the Geyelin, Rawle, Churchman, etc. family?

At least one current Churchman has been doing research, and I know one Geyelin who had done some earlier. While I knew none of them at the time, I grew up in Wayne, my sister dated a Rawle, and I knew one of the Geyelin family here in DC many years back. I was surprised to learn that I had a connection to them, as distant as it might be, through the Willoughbys. I was delighted to discover the photos you and others have provided - my thanks!

Wish to thank you for providing photos of the Laussat monument at Laurel Hill. The Willoughbys are cousins and I've been researching them for some years. While I've visited Green-wood in Brooklyn where Hugh L Willoughby and his father are interred as well as our mutual antecedents in Nova Scotia, I hadn't had the opportunity to visit Laurel Hill in Philly even though I grew up nearby and occasionally visit the area.

I am curious that you were able to provide the material written by Estelle. May I ask the source? I've been in touch with a number of her Laussat/Geyelin family and have some similar material by Estelle but not, I think, this material.

Again, thanks for the great photos!

RE: Hugh Willoughby
Thanks for your message. They were the parents of Hugh's mother, Susanna Estelle [Cook] (de Laussat) Willoughby, whose memorial I also created. I've linked her to her parents.

Hello! I am up at our camp in Willsboro, and saw your recent requests...I am off to the cemetery now, and will hopefully find the stones you are looking for. We won't be home until the 24th, so I will upload the photos then - we don't have internet access here - thank goodness for the BlackBerry!

Samantha :)

I wish to thank you for your time and effort in trying to find this site for me. As you said maybe someone else will find this site, but I have been to GREEN-WOOD and I know that it is very difficult in finding some of these grave sites.
Again I wish to thank you for trying.
