Tombstone Tuesday: Finding a Brahm in Pittsburgh
The subject is the Brahm family plot in Uniondale Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, PA.
While this is not my direct line, it is the direct line of a cousin of mine. One of the BRAHM sons married into my YOUNG family.
Roy M BRAHM (1898-1974) married Mildred M YOUNG (1899-1971). Roy and Mildred are both buried at the St Clair Cemetery(aka lovingly as my family cemetery) in Mt Lebanon, Allegheny, PA.
I don't know why Roy and Mildred are buried at St Clair rather than with his family at Uniondale. The plot in which Roy and Mildred are buried was purchased by her grandfather, Edward J YOUNG (1835-1905), and is the plot where Mildred's mom is resting. I am making an educated guess that Mildred's dad, George Fleming YOUNG (1850-1912) is probably also buried in the plot although there is no headstone. EJ is also buried at St Clair but he is further down the line in another plot he owned. This other plot was between his two aunts.
Ah- grave shots can be so beautiful. Not only do they bring back precious sweet memories, they also can be such an art form for genealogy buffs.
