Bio and Links
Bio Photo Edit: It is now 2016, I have 3 children (15 years old, 6 years old and 2 years old) and a full time job. I don't have any free time basically. I try to transfer memorials when I can. Please use the edit button for that. Please don't send me nasty messages (are you an adult or child??? I've deleted all those) if I don't reply. If you have a problem waiting, you can have an admin transfer if I don't get back to you and unless it's my mother or grandparents I won't mind. I'd rather they be in the care of a family member who will keep them updated. My family tree is on :) Also, you may use any of my photos, for your own records, on any genealogy website, or to add to a correct memorial, no credit is needed.

I hope to photograph all of the Philadelphia cemeteries eventually or help out when I can. I was working on photographing the entire Old Cathedral Cemetery, however, have had cemetery workers tell me I can't photograph the headstones. I finished about a third of it and plan to wait a bit to go back and hope they don't ban me. I have about 800 (as of 4/23/13) more photos to do, and hope to be finished that soon. I'm still working on what I photographed in that one trip, it was a large amount of pictures and I become burnt out after awhile and take a few months off. Maybe I will be brave enough to go back soon and hope not to get kicked out.

If any of the people I list are your relatives within 4 generations, feel free to either request that I transfer ownership or send me any info to update the page. I would love to transfer them since I do not have time to research everyone I list and can only go by the info on headstones and/or death records. Please do so by clicking on the edit button on their memorial and then clicking on suggest a correction. Doing it this way automatically sends me a link to the memorial and your contributor page, both of which I need to transfer. Sometimes I don't have much time to check on this site, so it may take me a bit, but I try to remember.

I make a point of checking to see if a person is listed already before creating a memorial for them and will upload photos to the already existing memorial. Sometimes I miss one or two (because the name is misspelled on original memorial or on the tombstone, the dates don't match up, etc.), if you find I have duplicated someone, let me know and I will remove it (if I have the time) and add my photos to the original memorial.

:) Jane

William McBride - 81st Pa.
I just want to give you a huge THANK YOU for your posting of the headstone of William McBride of the 81st Pa. Inf. in Trinity Lutheran Cemetery in Philadelphia. I am researching the men of the 81st Pa. and this was an enormous help. I have little information on the Vet and wasn't certain that it was my man buried in Trinity Lutheran. Your photo of his government headstone removed all doubt and put other information in place. Again, a huge thank you. Keep up the great work.

Thank you Jane for posting this photo. Any idea what section of the cemetery it's located in so I can add that info too.

Enjoy your week!

RE: Elizabeth Burg ~ Pennsylvania
That's okay Jane, it's fixed... I got tired of waiting and had admin merge your memorial which was posted in the wrong cemetery, it's gone now. HERE'S the merged memorial if it's any kin of yours. No offense, just trying to be helpful. Rich.

Janette Strickling Daugherty
Hello, Jane. I am the great grandaughter of Mary Cyrene Daugherty and J.B. Strickling. I have not done any research on "Aunt Net". However a relative did some family history in the '80s and her papers say "Mary Cyrene, or 'Rene' as she was called, had previously married George Burkhart and had a daughter, Nettie Burkhart." So assuming we are talking about the same person, I was wondering about the name here. Did she marry a Daugherty (that was Mary Cyrene's maiden name)? If you have any birth, death or marriage papers, I would love to have a copy.

Elizabeth Burg ~ Pennsylvania
Hello Jane. No offense, I'm just trying to be helpful. Seems you created a duplicate, yours is posted in the wrong cemetery, her obit even says she's buried at West Laurel Hill right? Yours is later, but posted wrong, might be easier if you'd delete yours, save admin from having to merge them? Anyway, see the problem HERE.

Stack -McKnight
I sent you an email. If you don't receive it, I thought it best to post here. I've been researching the Stack Family, which married into the McKnight family, as well as others. Teressa Stack m. David McKnight . She was the sister of my 3rd great grandmother, Maggie Stack m. John Esher. Their parents were Thomas and Ellen O'Connor Stack.
If you get a chance, please contact me,
