|Bio and Links|
Greetings enthusiasts! A librarian by trade, I love research and genealogy. I am mostly interested in the Keller and Klevorn families (my mother's maiden name is Klevorn). As I come upon other people of interest, I add them also.|
Currently I am working on a project to document the final resting places of Religious of the Sacred Heart (RSCJ), in the US, Canada, England, New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland and Australia. If you have any information regarding these Sisters I would be happy to hear from you.
I am of the opinion that cemeteries are places to honor and remember the dead; they are also places of healing and forgiveness. Our faith tells us that individuals who die in God's grace are part of the "Communion of Saints" -- to this end we need to approach this work with much reverence.
Fidelium animę, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.
All ye, who would honor
The saints and their Head,
To pray for the dead;
And they in return,
From their misery freed,
To you will be friends
In the hour of need.

No. Not the whole family. I know of her sister Elizabeth Drexel Smith, her husband, his little sisters.
Now the family is buried together at the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament Cemetery, Bensalem, Bucks County, Pa., which is the Motherhouse of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, and is right around the corner from Eden Hall.
It is closing by the end of the year, and the property being sold. Saint Katharine's remains will be moved to the Basilica SS Peter and Paul, Philadelphia.

No, I was not a student. I learned about Eden Hall while researching Saint Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, also from Torresdale. Some of the Drexel family were originally buried in Eden Hall Cemetery.

You are welcome. She is the Aunt, or rather "Step" Aunt of Saint Katharine Drexel.

Thank you so much Steven Keller for getting this photo of our families headstone. I had joined several groups in the area of the Mt Hope cemetery with hopes of finding any information other than what I have in my files presently. I am so appreciative of this, and I thank you so much, Karen Knabe
Okay, i am FINALLY done with all of them. Corrected 671 all the captions with the updated one to include 395 .
Please do see the caption for complete lot info for both of them.

So, I just figured out that Owen and Ann Devanney that I thought were a Cenotaph in 9-671, are actually buried in 9-395, which is actually next to/part of 671. If you had a postcard it would be where the stamp goes, in relationship, to the 'card'. so now i have to redo all the captions... I might take a bit. I have a meeting this afternoon.
395 includes 2 more Bascom's and a child Cooney.
If you have any questions please let me know.

This lot is very poorly marked... less than half are marked.
I did accidentally mark that Regina had a stone... no she does not. I got some corrected to the correct caption.

You are very welcome. I enjoyed doing it and I always have a great week, some better than others.

I looked twice for the other grave for you but couldn't find her. Was she mother superior? Maybe they were buried somewhere else. A man I spoke with said there was a retirement home for nuns around Dublin I think he said and if they died there then thats were they would be buried. Your welcome for the photo, It was a beautiful spot.

Thanks for letting me know about Dom John Lane-Fox and the Benedictine monks of Scotland. I've been focusing again mostly on the religious and clergy who served in the L.A. area. As many as are already recorded, I still find more to add to Find A Grave.
Stay well and God bless!
