Many genealogists have experienced the let down of finally tracking down the burial location of an ancestor only to find no headstone or a headstone with just a name. On a recent "dead people tour" (as my children refer to my genealogy treks) with Ed's brother Russ and wife Barbara Reynolds Kelly, we found a genealogist dream headstone at Holy Cross Cemetery in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
We love that there for eternity is Katherine Murphy's ancestral home in Ireland. Of course, it would have been nice if they had included her maiden name but this was enough to trace it to Delahunty.
Blogging about my Genealogy adventures as I trace the Family Trees of my Grandparents; on my paternal side Charles Newton Cone and Hazel Bynum Allen and on my maternal side Ada Grace Colby and Cecil Oscar Werst. I also research in-laws and out-laws associated with the families.
I call my Genealogy concentration One Bad Apple in honor of the one truly nefarious ancestor I've found. As they say.... one bad apple doesn't spoil the whole bunch!
