Bio and Links
Bio Photo Explorer, Photographer, Historian. I enjoy exploring my city (Philadelphia) and discovering its lost history. I have recently become interested in my family genealogy. Doing research, I have discovered that I come from two long Philadelphia bloodlines, the Gilbert (arrived with William Penn in 1683) and Webster (settled in New England circa 1630) lines. Both families came from England, and have been living in the Philadelphia area since at least 1700. Any information or help regarding these two lines is always welcome and appreciated.

Southeastern Pennsylvania contains many colonial and Victorian cemeteries, and a large number of vanished ones. The Quaker city does not have a great track record of relocating its historic cemeteries. Many still lay undisturbed beneath neighborhood playgrounds, and some have vanished altogether. Putting together pieces of Philadelphia's long-buried past is a passion of mine.

Please remove the photo of Louis Kuehnle on memorial no. 63003310. The photo you posted is of another Louis Kuehnle, probably his son.

Graff Graves at Mount Vernon Cemetery
I just found this site and have found some of our ancestors that are at the Mount Vernon cemetery. I went there today and was so disapointed to find the cemerary closed. I was wondering how one can get inside to take photos of the grave sites? I am looking for the following. Peter Fenner Graff, Anna Louise Graff, Mary A. Graff, George Jacob Graff and a few others I am still tracking.

Thank you
Thank you for the memorials (# 91450554) for Fred Greensmith and his wife Sarah Haigh. This helped my family research as it gave validity to them having moved to Philadelphia, PA from Yorkshire England. Trudy

William Freihofer Picture
The picture you posted on William Freihofer's memorial (#14285383), is from the wrong location. There is a William A. Freihofer buried with Charles Freihofer at Greenlawn 32, where your photo was taken, but he was an Army ordnance sergeant and born 1887. The bio of William (#14285383) says he became president of a baking company in 1900.
