Comments / Questions: My wife's ancestors are from Kensington. I know of two that are buried at Palmer Cemetery. John Smith who passed away on 2/20/1856 and his wife Elizabeth (Snyder)Smith who was buried on 1/18/1885 in a ground vault (per her death certificate. Saw a few more Smiths and Snyders when we visited and think they may also be related.

Comments / Questions: Mom told me stories of the family, visiting Aunt Nellie (Helen M. Rush) grave in the Spring at Palmer Cemetery. I recently found a listing for Aunt Nellie with Ancestry. To my great joy, Ancestry has Palmer Cemetery Records listed under Pennsylvania, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985. As noted Aunt Nellie is buried-- Palmer Cemetery, Sec 3, Aisle 1, 3rd from the end. Is there a site map for Palmer Cemetery so I may visit Aunt Nellie? Also, I volunteering to help with a clean up and helping out with your cost to maintain this wonderful cemetery.

Comments / Questions: Jim, saw the story about the hawk... before I moved to warmer climes, I used to watch that hawk all the time... SHE used to perch on the cross at St. Laurentius, and then swoop down into the cemetery. I spoke with a wild bird specialist one day at the Fill The Cart collection and she said that it was a female Red Tailed Hawk... the females are bigger than the males (go figure). Father Francis once told the story that he was doing a funeral in the cemetery one day when the hawk swooped over the gravesite...

Comments / Questions: The idea of a website for Palmer has been an idea of mine for sometime. I want this site to inform, but more importantly, I want this website to create new interest in Palmer Cemetery. We will be updating this site frequesntly, so come back and visit often. We will be soliciting help for clean-ups, we will be looking for financial donations to make long needed repairs around and inside Palmer Cemetery. There is so much to do, and with the community's help, we will succeed. Thanks...Jim Kingsmill
