Sketch Map of the Entrance to Mt. Peace Cemetery
The address of Mount Peace Cemetery is 3111 West Lehigh Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19132. I visited this cemetery in 1995. There is no gravestone.
Section U, Lot 183, Grave 1st & 2nd West
(14 walk 8 lot right)
Notes: It seems that when Margaret (Kiehl) Becker died, her husband Wilhelm Becker's remains were transferred from Glenwood Cemetery in Philadelphia, to Mount Peace Cemetery in Philadelphia, and that while Wilhelm's remains were being transferred, Margaret's remains were stored in the "vault", and then both bodies were buried on 28 March 1916 (Margaret died on 20 February 1916, whereas Wilhelm had died on 28 December 1901). There is no gravestone or other marker for these graves.
Note: Glenwood Cemetery ≠ Glenwood Memorial Gardens. Glenwood Cemetery was in North Philadelphia and began burials in 1850, but the city forced it to close and its graves were transferred outside the city to Broomall, Delaware County, although this was not until 1938. Thus Wilhelm Becker's remains were transferred in 1916 from Ridge Avenue and 27th Street in Philadelphia, the location of Glenwood Cemetery, to Mount Peace Cemetery, not from Broomall to Philadelphia. Anyone buried in Glenwood before February 1924 had to have been buried in Philadelphia, because the Broomall location did not open until that date.
