Mount Moriah Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA

The Mount Moriah Cemetery is located on Kingsessing Avenue and consists of an older section and a newer section. Cobbs Creek Boulevard cuts through the two sections. I did not take a photo of the entrance when I visited in 1998, but did find this photo on-line.

The Dougans are my paternal ancestors. This stone is for my great, great grandfather and his family. It is in Section 31, Lot 49. On the top of the stone is engraved Dougan. The front of the stone on the left side reads:
Father: Joseph Dougan 1823 - 1911
Mother: Mary Dougan 1829 - 1923

The right side reads:
1861 Robert C. 1864
1867 Mary Y. 1868
1864 Robert C. 1882

This small stone lays flat in the ground and is in Section 135, Lot 250, and is for my great grandparents child:

This stone represents part of my great, great grandfather's family. It is located in Section 135, Lot 246. The top of the stone is engraved Phillips - Dougan. The front of the stone on the left side reads:
