I am not a Philadelphian, but I poked around on the Web and found out some info.

The cemetery has been there since the 7700's, it's at the corner of 2nd and Jefferson. The address of the church is 1445 N. 2nd St.

The church was established in 1831 and is still there, Google it, it looks beautiful., it is still in use.

If you go to FindaGrave, there are over 1.000 records of interments. Hopefully you will find what you need.

If that doesn't work, you need to contact the Catholic Cemetery Division, 111 S 38th St, Phila, 19104, (215) 895-3450.

My mother's family lived in that area, and I tried several years ago to drive down into that area to see their former homes. I would advise you, if you go, to use extreme caution, the neighborhood did not appear to be safe.
