Family Graves - Holy Redeemer Cemetery

Holy Redeemer Cemetery is located on Richmond St. in the Bridesburg Neighborhood of The City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Cemetery was established in 1886 by St. Peter's R.C. Church (at 5th St. & Girard Ave.) and is still active. It is a beautiful old cemetery, full of very elaborate headstones and monuments. It has a tree lined central driveway and the first few sections are scattered with trees.
The newer section, which is in the rear of the cemetery is more modern with the typical headstones we see today and not as many trees.
The cemetery is well maintained.

Almost my entire Paternal side of the family is buried here. Below I show the photos of the graves I have seen so far. There are more that do not have headstones, and some that I have not been able to locate. There are more LEINS graves, at least one other PAUL grave, FISHERs, BOWERs and more...
