Hi Kim,
Aha, you found 'em! Great!
I have family in Althea so that's why I would have been in that section wandering around & taking a few photos.

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim : yes, by the way, the office has moved to another bldg. I found this out abt. a month ago myself. I'm retired and therefore free during the work week. I have found it best to go to a cemetery office during the work week in mid morning or early afternoon. Never at lunch time, nor too early or too late.
Most cemetery offices are not open on the weekends.
So, I never go to an office on a weekend.
I entered the death notice for Richard, Jr. You will find it in his memorial. I overlooked your message yesterday.
The nicest folks I've found are at New Cathedral Cemetery. They have a computer database right in the office as well as the old log books.
Aha, so I may have gotten the Section O info from you. Well, you'll find those folks eventually so it'll be corrected.
Oh, the reason for the shift in the office at Loudon is because it is also a funeral home. I think they just wanted to separate the two aspects of the cemetery.
I carry jugs of water, a brush & a big sponge in my trunk for cleaning markers. Absolutely NO detergent of any kind. Sometimes a mirror will help throw light just is the right way to help read inscriptions.
Find A Grave has a Facebook page. Some cleaning info pops up on there as well as some interesting stories.
OK, I'm starting to ramble,
Ciao for now,
John

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim:
Looks like I entered Section 'O' so they are probably there somewhere. The office will give you a map and an idea as to where the lot is. I say "an idea" because Loudon Park sometimes is not too friendly or helpful. Ask for the name on the first grave in their row and/or names near by. That info will help a lot.
I clicked on the photo and saw that I had entered it in May of 2013 so it would have been cooler then. I usually only go on dry & cool days & even in winter when it's not too cold.
Many of the tombstones I've taken photos of have been near ancestors of mine & so while there I have just randomly chosen a few to photo.
I walk with a cane nowadays so don't do very much wandering around. I only wander a bit while researching some ancestor.
Tell your cousins to definitely join. I'll be happy to transfer the memorials to them.
Why not go back to that overturned tombstone & look at it again. Take a jug of water & a soft bristle brush ... nothing abrasive ... and see if you can clean it some. Then take several photos from different angles. Read in FAQ what NOT to do when cleaning a stone. (maybe you already have & if so I apologize for playing teacher) I'm fascinated by those overturned ones.
Thanks for the update,
John

Hi Kim,
Thanks for the Swindell edits. Are these folks in your tree? Would you like me to transfer them to you?

RE: Dorothea Bollinger
Hi Kim, you are certainly welcome. That is why I originally tried to transcribe the entire cemetery. It was my gift back to genealogy and I got a gift back by finding many cousins also doing genealogy. Best wishes and let me know if you need others. Jane

Kim,
Thanks for the photo of the stone. It is appreciated. So many of the memorial I make are of people I find while researching someone else. It might be nice to go back in a few months when the ground has settled and the grass grown and replace the picture
Your help is appreciated.
Robert

Dear Kim,
I want to thank you for transferring Louisa Bast's
memorial to me. I appreciate your work and help.
My Best to you.

RE: Louisa Bast
Hi Kim,
Louisa L. Earnshaw Apsey Bast married my
Great Great Great Grandfather Solomon
Bast (by marriage). She was a widow when
they married.

Her first Marriage was to William Apsey, Jr.
(don't have his birth date here with me now but could look it up....he must have died before 27 Dec, 1836, because thats when Louisa married Soloman). William and Louisa had 4 daughters together. She lived her life out with her 2nd husband Solomon and they had 3 more children.

I cannot find an entry for William Apsey, Jr in Find a Grave--I did look.

Did I ask that you transfer this memorial over to me? I don't recall, but if you could I would appreciate it....you can do it anytime. No rush.

Thank you for your interest, work and help on this.

RE: Conrad and Margaret Schissler
You also need to use the archives site. It gives you birth, death and marriage dates (within certain years) and once you find the record, you can get a copy. DO NOT ORDER THEM ONLINE. They charge $25 per record online. I go down once every second or third month and can get them for you a lot cheaper, unless you'd like to go with me sometime and learn to get them yourself.

The site is: http://guide.mdsa.net/index.cfm

Start with Reference and Research, death records. City records you need the code after the death date. Any county record you will need the county and date. Sounds confusing but when you find someone write down everything next to their name.

We will definitely need to wait on the visit. The cemetery is at the east end of North Avenue and that's where a lot of this is going on. North Ave is not the best of neighborhoods on a good day.

If you need any additional dates, let me know. Do you use the state archives site?

RE: Conrad and Margaret Schissler
I took pictures of every one that I ran across and as of right now all of your pictures are uploaded, I believe. I spent 4 hours over there yesterday and ended up with pictures that have no memorial, so I need to do those memorials today.

Most of Baltimore Cemetery needs to be driven, so don't stress about getting out of breath. I have asthma and a bad knee... and this place is so big (not as big as Loudon Park but still huge in it's own right) that I drive to the next location, walk until I'm out of breath, then drive to the next area waiting for the breathing to get normal again.

If you're interested in visiting, let me know and I'll take you. It's awesome once you're there and I know the neighborhoods well enough to keep us safe.

RE: Conrad and Margaret Schissler
I was going to send you a note about the Schisslers... there are 3 large family lots with a German lot in between. All are in Section X, and I have not yet finished uploading the pictures. You may want to consider contacting the cemetery to see if you can get lot cards for them, if you are interested.

Cemetery is incorrect. Should be listed as Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery on Grindon Ave in Lauraville, Baltimore City, not Immanuel Episcopal Cemetery in Sparks. August and his wife Catherine Muhler are my Great Grandparents and have visited the cemetery many times. Thank you.

Thank you for the photo of the headstone of Catherine Seidel Muhler, my Great Grandmother. Unfortunately the cemetery listed is incorrect. It's listed as Immanuel Episcopal Cemetery in Sparks. It should be Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery on Grindon Avenue in Lauraville neighborhood of Baltimore City. Thank you.

Hello, I absolutely love the pictures of George and Doris on your memorial pages. George was my mother's cousin. Do you have a connection with them or are these pictures you received from a family member? If it is the latter then I need to ask around for copies! Thanks!
