Old Cathedral Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA


Transcription

The following is a partial transcription of the above named cemetery as submitted by a visitor to this site who copied these records directly from the handwritten index cards containing burial records at the cemetery office in Old Cathedral Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA. DistantCousin.com cannot vouch as to authenticity. We strongly encourage you to verify each record independently if this information relates to your family history.

  • Diedricks, Cecelia - 18 ~ 9-DEC-1924 (Lot # 23 / Lot Holder: Dominick Morris)   (Note: No death record was found for this person. Cecelia is known to be a granddaughter of Dominick Morris' son William, probably by William's daughter Jane. Cecelia died very young, in childbirth, and the stillborn infant is buried in the casket with her.)

  • Flood, Ann - 68 ~ 4-OCT-1875 (Section V, Range 1, Lot #36 / Lot Holder: Sarah Leech) (Note: Thought to have been buried in this lot before purchase by Sarah Leech. Was moved to adjoining lot three years before the earliest burial of a Leech family member.)

      The Dominick Morris plot in Old Cathedral Cemetery was visited on 22 October 1986. It is located in the smaller part of the cemetery, across the street that divides the cemetery and directly behind the sexton's office at the entrance to the place. The plot contained a single white stone marker which was lying face upwards on the ground. It had been very recently cleared of dirt and turned face upwards. The imprint of the letters was still visible where the stone had been lying. Cemetery groundskeepers were apparently getting ready to set the stone upright again (as it was indeed found on a late visit). The engraving on the stone is as follows:

      Jennie Spear
      Dominick Morris 70
      Dominick Morris Jr. 3 yrs
      Mary Morris

      It would appear that the stone was set up after the death of Mary Morris, since the lettering seems to have been done all at the same time. Catherine Spear, who died only three months before Mary, is not listed on the stone.
