Social Media strikes again

I was reading Facebook yesterday, and there was a picture of the Sign for the Burial Ground where my Grandparents (all 4 of them) are buried. A number of my aunts and uncles (Dad’s side) are buried there.

My pictures, not from Facebook

Who posted that photo? The gentleman who currently lives is the house where my Dad’s family lived.

Little did my friend Steve know, that my Grandparents were married in this same building, the Birmingham Friends Meeting in 1915.

This picture is from about 1915. My grandparents were married in this building June 17, 1915. I don’t know, for sure, the date that Steve was at Birmingham, but I am guessing it was a couple of days ago, around the their 97th anniversary. (happy belated Anniversary)

Not only were they Married their, but the are also resting in the Cemetery just behind this building.

I send a link to my Find-A-Grave posting for my grandfather, as on his Find-A-Grave Memorial, there are links to my Aunts and Uncles who are buried in the same area of the cemetery and a link to where my dad is resting.

Good thing Steve is interested in Genealogy.

But why stop there, I have other family in the same Cemetery that Steve visited.

Birmingham-Lafayette Cemetery, West Chester, Pennsylvania

Who say’s Social Media doesn’t work. For me it works well, hope it doesn’t overwhelm Steve.
