Does anyone know anything about the Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeardon, Delaware, PA? I want to know which family members of are buried there so I can enter them on Find A Grave. I know of a few, but there are at least 25--most of which I don't know.

I called the cemetery and was told that they can give me locations for two people. Can't give me a list. I've googled for a list of burials, but none of the lists (all are partial) have members of the family I'm looking for. Does anyone know of a site with a complete census of the burials? Another workaround?

I know one of the plots is a family plot, so I've asked for a pic of a family member who is buried there and requested photo of nearby family. I'm hoping that will provide some other names.

Many thanks for any help you can give!

Let's start with what you know. How about 1 or 2 names and dates of birth or death you might already know. I have access to old newspapers from the 1860's through 1922 & would be happy to look up some of the family if they fall into this time frame. I also know this cemetery well, most of my family are there too.

Thank you so much for your offer, but Enrico Rosetti was the immigrant and his descendants all died after 1922. I sure wish I could take advantage of this!

If you can go to the cemetery in person they will give you the listing of everyone in a plot but they will only give you two plots at a time.

I'm not far from Yeadon. But... whether I get there?

I found an article on Rosalie's final vows.
Quote:
YEADON NUN TAKES FINAL VOWS TODAY

YEADON — Rosalie Rosetti, daughter of Mrs. Alice Rosetti and the late Daniel Rosetti of 990 MacDade Blvd., will make her final vows today in the Order of the Sisters of Notre Dame, at the mother house in Ilchester, Md.

Her religious name will be Sister Alice Daniel.

A mass of thanksgiving will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Sunday in St. Louis Catholic Church in honor of Sister Daniel's perpetual vow day. After the mass, she will greet relatives, friends and neighbors in the school hall.

Sr. Alice Daniel was graduated from West Philadelphia Catholic Girls High School in 1956, and from Trinity College, Washington, D.C., in 1961.

She will teach at Notre Dame High School, Moylan.

Notre Dame High School in Moylan was closed more that 15 years ago maybe even longer. Anyone out there know what they are using the buildings for now?

Hi Beverly,

Try this site for obituaries: http://delawarecolib.newspaperarchive.com/AdvanceSearch.aspx

This is the free search engine for the Chester Times/Daily Times for any article published from 1876 through 1997. Admittedly some years are missing and some are not complete (they don't contain every page from every issue in the year) but I've had more luck with this site than any other in finding family information from Delaware County in that time frame.

You may have to get a little bit creative in your search, sometimes using the "exact phrase" search feature eliminates results that you would expect to find so if that doesn't work you should try the "with all of the words" search.

Good luck!

Last year I called the office about family buried there. I had several names that I knew were there and others that I wasn't sure about. They told me the same thing, that they could only look up 2 if I walked in. But, they did tell me if I mailed/FAXed them names and dates (if I had them) they would look up when they had time. I got a list of plot info from them a couple of weeks later. I also called the Catholic Cemetery Office about other cemeteries - messages at Old Cathedral said there was a $15 charge each to look up. I had those names and that office told me to send to them. Again, a couple of weeks later I got a list of plot info.
It's worth a try.

Another way to do this is to make requests for two family members, and I'd try for two you would not expect to be buried together. When you request the plot location, give the full name, at least the month and year of death or burial, and request the interment listing for that plot. They will do this.

Then, send a second request for two more.

Holy Cross does have a notice that they will charge; however, I've never been charged. I visited once or twice a month for close to a year, requesting two at a time, and they were helpful and di dnot charge.

Old Cathedral will charge. The CCO will help, but when it comes to Holy Cross, the above method does work. Also, you may find dates now by using the newly released death records on the PA Dept of Health site. It's an index, but the date of death is there as well as place of death, so it may help you to gather more information.

I was in Holy Cross today, they were very busy, but gave me the plot info quickly. They also told me there was no marker on the plot. I went to the location anyway, just to see it, and two rows away saw the surname I was looking for, another member of the same family, who I had NO idea was there, so it was worth the trip. Staff members in trucks roamed around helping the lost find what they were looking for.
