Bio and Links
Bio Photo Exploring cemeteries started as a morbid curiosity in my early teens, as we were close to old Quaker cemeteries in Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, PA. I started to realize that every stone represented a life, and the lives that were touched by an individual. Now, thanks to the Internet, the necropolis can be brought to the comfort of my desk on my computer screen. I post pictures from time to time, and I would like to research and add the many Civil War burials from Mount Vernon Cemetery, Lehigh Ave., and The Woodlands, Woodland Ave., both in Philadelphia, PA.

Hi John!
I recently found out a cousin of my GGGGGGrandpa's was Pelatiah Webster Jr (1726-1795), a "FORGOTTEN" Founding Father who is supposed to be in Mt. Vernon Cem...I'm trying to get him "FAMOUS" status, and need a grave PIC for him too! Could you please check into this for me?
