*NOTES: from David McCall: "mccall_d", [email protected]

"I was born in Penn Hills and was Superintendent of Mt. Hope Cemetery in 
Penn Hills for 16 years.  (1957-1973)  At that time Harry Pahlman was 
President of the Board of the cemetery.  Harry Pahlman's wife was Ida 
(Richey) Pahlman.  This was always called the  "Richey" Family Cemetery 
not "Ritcher" Burial Ground.

"When this housing development was built the builder wanted to move the 
cemetery but Ida wouldn't allow it, as this was her family's cemetery.

"Harry and Ida Richey Pahlman are buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery... they had 
no children.

"Hope this info will be of some help to you.

David McCall -- December 21, 2000."
