    Boyer Plot - Greenmount Cemetery
    Greenmount Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA - unmarked plot of George Washington Boyer, his wife Gwendolen Reece, his daughters Edith Boyer and Mabel Boyer.

  • Notes 
    • Visited her grave in May 2004 at the Greenmount Cemetery.  Photo and copy of plot card on file.  Others buried in this plot are: George W. Boyer (father), Gwendolen A. (mother), Baby Edith Boyer, (sister). 

      The cemetery records show that the only gravestone marking the plot is that of Baby Edith Boyer, however upon visiting, no gravestone, other than one that was illegible, could be found.

      Evelyn (Boyer) Hinsdale notes (Dec 2005):

      "She died of diptheria at around age 8 or 9" [8, 9]
