|Bio and Links|
|I grew up in the "Fairmount" and "Brewerytown" sections of Philadelphia now known as the "Art Museum" area and I now live in Philadelphia's Greater Northeast. I began tracing my family history in 2003 starting with just a handful of names and bits of information on maybe two generations. Now my extended family tree has thousands of names and grows every week. |
I discovered that my great grandfather William H. Carpenter served in the Civil War(Pa.186th Infantry Co."D"),he was stationed at Fort Mifflin guarding the City of Philadelphia. His younger brother Pvt. James Knox Polk Carpenter was "accidentally shot by a comrade's gun" outside of Petersburg, VA just two weeks before the end of the war. I also found several great grand uncles and a cousin who were well-known Catholic priests in Philadelphia. I also found that I had a Great Aunt who was an Immaculate Heart of Mary Nun for over 50 years, and a cousin who was also an Immaculate Heart of Mary Nun. Two extended family members were also members of that same order of nuns. My maternal grandfather lost two siblings in the influenza epidemic of 1918 which hit Philadelphia particularly hard.
Most of the names I have added to Find A Grave belong to members of my extended family tree or names I have found during my research of my family. Many of the surnames are the same as my family surnames but I am not sure if they are connected yet.
If you would like to add information to any of the memorials I have placed, or if you have any research questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

|EDWARD ROCK||WILLIAM CARPENTER|
Maybe you already know this but if you go to the photos on the HC memorial page, there is a map of the cemetery and you can see where William's section is.
|Harry||John & Elizabeth Barnholt|
Good News! I found my photographs of John & Elizabeth's gravestones and I had them uploaded. Sad to say, these gravestones no longer exist today.
