Great information. I am the grand daughter of Tracey Edward Martin (son of James) and Emma Matilda Goff. I am curious if they are related to Walter Martin and William Goff. Amymollman@gmail.com

Is there some group that would organize the placing of a WWI Government Marker on the grave of PFC Harry A. Conner? His grave is clearly marked in Section 3 Lot No. 737 Grave-South Side of the Fernwood Cemetery, Fernwood, Delaware County, Pa. See FIND A GRAVE to see more information: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/141054783/harry-a-conner
More information:
Harry A. Conner was born on September 1, 1886, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to his mother, Mary Elizabeth McCallen. His father, William H. Conner, was born on January 20, 1857, passed away early in Harry’s life on February 18, 1913, having died of pneumonia.
Harry registered for the World War I draft on June 5, 1917. At the time he resided at 3848 Brown Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was listed as a driver for his employee, John L. Cott of 611 North 40th Street. He was single at that time and never married. He was five feet tall, medium build, brown eyes, and brown hair. Harry enlisted in the Army on April 3, 1918, in Philadelphia and served with the 318th Field Hospital, 305th Sanitary Train. He became a private first class in April 1919. Harry departed Newport News onboard the ship Mercury on May 25, 1918 for France and returned onboard the ship Rotterdam on May 20, 1919 and arrived in Hoboken, New Jersey. On both going and returning, Harry listed his mother, Mary E. Conner as his contact while overseas. She was residing at 5439 Malcom Street, Philadelphia. He was honorably discharged on June 9, 1919, at Camp Dix, New Jersey, when the unit was decommissioned.
He died on December 3, 1931, at 8:45 PM of a left cerebral hemorrhage, and contributing factor was bronchopneumonia. Harry is buried in Fernwood Cemetery, Fernwood, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
On February 19, 1934, Mary E. Conner, his mother, filled out an application for Pennsylvania WWI Veteran’s Compensation, which would result in $140 for Harry’s fourteen months of Army service. She recorded his legal address at 38th and Brown Street, Philadelphia. She lived at 6126 Samson Street, Philadelphia. The application was approved on June 22, 1934. Mary was born on October 27, 1858 passed away on May 2, 1939, and is buried in Fernwood Cemetery as her husband William and son, Harry. Sadly, there is no marker or headstone for Harry, whose grave is documented in section 3, lot number 737, south side.

Thank you for the wonderful site. I have learned a great deal more about my family from studying the maps, et al. that you posted. My grandmother started the recording/preservation project in the 1950's and I have continued her work over the last 15 years. I thought I knew everything about the Holts, Wrigleys, Hannums and Worrells. But I had no idea until I found your page. Thank you so much, Melanie Bork Graham
