Florence Moltrop Kelley, d/o William D. and Caroline B. (Bonsall) Kelley, was married for 7 years to Lazare Wischnewetzky (1884-1891) with whom she had three children, Nicholas, Margaret D. and John B. Kelley. Florence was a social and political reformer from Philadelphia. Her work against sweatshops and for the minimum wage, eight-hour workdays, and children's rights is widely regarded today.

I am pretty sure that Florence is not buried at the cemetery as here ashes were sent to Massachusettes. I would suggest adding a note that most of the family is here but she was cremated and ashes were not interred. I will check back again with the cemetery but believe there is no record of her burial here.
