Great news! Thank you Diane in Pennsylvania.
Great-Great-Grandmother Mary (née Marie Katz) Brunhammer’s final resting place has been found. There is always a thrill of success in the field of genealogy when that object, or that piece of information, that has been evading you forever so long, finally turns up.
Here is the Obituary from the Monday, December 14, 1922 edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
And my transcription –
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 14, 1922
BRUNHAMMER. – Dec. 11. MARY, wife of late Jacob Brunhammer, aged 82. Relatives and friends invited to attend funeral. Thurs., 8.30 A. M., residence 1679 N. 56th St. High requiem mass at St. Gregory’s Church, 10 A. M. Int. private.
GG-Grandmother Mary arrived in the United States at Philadelphia on 17 May 1876 with six of her children. (See Part 92b.) Obviously, gg-grandfather Jacques was there to meet them. Together they had, according to our discovered sources 14 children. And from what we have learned is that there are many descendants, including all Brunhammers and Brunhamers now living in the United States.
We are so pleased with the most recent discovery. Our thanks also go to Tony and Cindy Lloyd of Nebraska who submitted the information to Find A Grave.
Another key piece of the Brunhammer vast and interesting history and genealogy is now in the record. We look forward to seeing photographs and images of gg-grandmother Mary’s final resting place. And we keep searching for the same of gg-grandfather Jacques (also known as Jacob) Brunhammer’s burial location.
We keep searching. Thank you, Diane.
