RE: American Mechanics
No stones were removed to Philadelphia Memorial Park. I know of no case where stones were ever removed to other cemeteries in Philadelphia. The American Mechanics' stones were used as foundation stones for the Betsy Ross bridge in Northeast Philadelphia.
Usually (and I have seen this) the bodies of defunct cemteries are dug up by backhoe, dumped into dump trucks and reburied in mass graves.

What pictures?
The cemetery is closed, gone, destroyed. There is nothing to take pictures of.
It became public housing and is now athletic fields.

RE: Hello!
Thanks for your prayers and kind words. In 1987, the summer between HS graduation and college, I worked at a nursing home in Clancy, MT as a CNA (nurse's aide). Judy had double carpel tunnel surgery. She had cerebral palsy, was in a wheelchair much of the time, and lived with her elderly mother. There was no way that her mom could take care of her and with both hands in bandages, she couldn't really take care of herself very well. So she was in the nursing home while she recovered. She was in her 40s and the youngest patient there. She was a neat lady and a lot of fun. We kept in contact over the years and I visited her and her Mom sometimes when I was in the area. They lived in Helena. I know that she had a sister or brother who was married and had children ( I think). Judy had a twin brother who died shortly after birth. Most of her health problems were from being a premature baby at a time when they weren't as likely to survive. She was a secretary at an auto dealership in Helena, but I don't recall which one. She got carpel tunnel from all of the typing. As far as I know, she never married, but did have a long-time boyfriend. She wrote a lot, as do I. Somewhere, I have an essay she typed of her family history, mostly just her immediate family. I came across it a few years ago, but I don't remember what I did with it.

Hi Kiza ~

Welcome to findagrave! According to their grave designations, Clara and Robert Dougherty are buried together in the Holyrood Chapel. I will take pictures and post them to their memorial pages within one week. Do you happen to know if Clara and Robert were husband and wife? Are you related to them?
