I wonder if Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill had been unlucky enough to find themselves surrounded by city blocks if they would have met a similar fate

Hey Ed, really really cool stuff. Not in PA, but in VA we have Woodland Cemetery. Arthur Ashe is buried there along with Maggie Walker (in collocated East End Cemetery). The cemetery is woefully overgrown. It's an incredible place and lots of efforts to clean the cemetery and put gravestones back are currently underway. You should come check it out! There's also a GoFundMe for current clean up and restoration efforts. Let me know if you'd be interested in learning more about the cemetery for your blog.

I noticed Odd Fellows Cemetery got mentioned a few times, and that bodies from that cemetery were put into the same cemetery as the ones from Monument. Do you happen to know where that was originally located?
Bill
01:35:44
Odd Fellows Cemetery was established March 24, 1849 at 23rd and Diamond Streets in Philadelphia.

Research can be done by appointment at the Athenaeum without being a member (currently it is all virtual), but you need to be a member if you want to hang out and do your own work, or drop by without an appointment.
