Part 558b – Brunhammer Genealogy – GG-Grandmother Mary Brunhammer’s Final Resting Place Found!

21 August 2011

Good Morning,

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.

GG-Grandmother Mary (née Marie Katz) Brunhammer’s final resting place and grave site appears to be located at Arlington Cemetery at 2900 State Road, Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. She is located in the Silverbrook Section of the Cemetery. GG-Grandmother Mary passed away on 11 December 1922 and was buried 14 December. The red marker in the following Google map represents the approximate location of gg-grandmother Mary's grave site.

Here is the Obituary from the Monday, December 14, 1922 edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

And my transcription –



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.
