Hello!

Sorry I miss typed my email.
It's KimS4873@gmail.com
Thank you for any help!



I have been looking into my family history for my grandfather (Conrad John Fowler B: 23 Dec 1921).

His great grandmother was Deborah C (Linton) Fowler. Her parents were Dr. Lewis Linton and Sarah Kocher.

I found their find a grave page and I was wondering if you had any more information then what is on the Find a grave site. I was also hoping you had a few more pictures that might include Deborah as a child with her parents.

Any information would be great.

Thank you!

Hi Mrs Bee,
First of all thank you so much for all your time and effort. I was recently reviewing my 3X great grandfather John R Crump. His DOB and DOD are the same as the ones given to John A Crump in St Paul's. My 3X great grandfather is buried in Bethel Cemetery along with his wife Martha A Padgett Crump. Also Pvt John W Crump's parents were Daniel Overall and Catherine Crump.

Mrs. Bee:

I find two memorials for this person

#37970051 - you are maintaining
#97825350

Yours says burial is in Brewer Cemetery; the other says Maple Grove

While the marker looks identical on both memorials, I am unable to read the stone and I doubt it would say the Cemetery.

His wife Naomi # 37970059 says burial is in Brewer. Also maintained by yourself.

Do you have any information that will clear this up. I am doing a Kinne family tree.

Thanks for your help. Lynda

RE: Julius Adolphus deLagnel (#66694693)
If this is indeed the man who graduated from West Point, he was about 41 years old at the time of his death (information from Cullum's Register). While I'm not completely sure about the year 1799, it seems far more likely than 1744. It's possible that his records and those of a similarly named relative were mixed up.

I also found a Confederate general with the exact same name (#10853), and I'm looking to see if he's related to this man.

James W Keene
Hi,
This is information that my cousin looked into for James W Keene Find A Grave Memorial# 66211516.
Finding this information answered several questions. JWK's wife Alcinda Ann Dodson married 2nd John Thomas Bladen. JWK and Alcinda had one daughter: Ellen Keene born in 1853. JWK's father was Moses W Keene and his mother was Margaret Dodson.
The James W. Keene who lost his life in the fire of November 17, 1855 is the same James W. Keene who was the first husband of Alcinda Ann Dodson. I spent a couple of hours in the Virginia Room of the Fairfax County Regional Library yesterday. I found the articles in the Alexandria Gazette that the person who put the information on Find A Grave used as her source. Apparently, Alcinda and James settled in Alexandria after their marriage. Although one of the Gazette articles gives his occupation as selling wood, he was, by trade, a bricklayer. I'll give you a little information on the fire in which James lost his life. Shortly after midnight on Saturday, November 17, 1855, the night watch in Alexandria discovered a fire on the third floor of a building on the north side of King Street between Fairfax and Water (now Lee) Streets. James was a member of the Friendship Fire Company, one of several fire companies to respond to the fire. The fire had been brought under control by about 4 am and a number of fire fighters were on the first and second floors of the building when the west wall of the structure suddenly collapsed. The wall brought down the second and first floors of the building. A number of the fire fighters were injured and seven were killed. Among those killed was James W. Keene. On Monday, November 19, the largest funeral ever held in Alexandria took place. According to the Gazette, James, along with three other fire fighters, were interred in the Methodist-Protestant Cemetery on Wilkes Street in Alexandria. As a point of interest, the fire was a case of arson. It had been set in order to collect insurance money for a business in financial trouble.
What confirms that Alcinda's James and the James killed in the fire were one and the same is found in the publication Alexandria (Arlington) County, Virginia Death Records 1853-1896 by Wesley E. Pippenger. The entry reads as follows: "Keene, J. W., W, M, 16 Nov. 1855, Alexa., accident, 23 y, M&M Keene, P. William Co., bricklayer, A. Keene, widow". What it says is J. W. Keene, a white male, died on November 16*, 1855. He was killed by accident in Alexandria. He was 23 years old and his parents were M (Moses) and M (Margaret) Keene. He was born in Prince William County, Virginia, was a bricklayer by trade (an article in the Washington, D. C. newspaper, The National Intelligencer, gave his occupation as bricklayer as well) and the information was provided by his widow, A. (Alcinda) Keene. Other than an incorrect date of death (the 16th instead of the 17th) everything fits. The Gazette puts his burial place as the Methodist-Protestant Cemetery and, although he has no stone, I see no reason to doubt he is buried there.
This was indeed an exciting find for me and my cousin!

Julius Adolphus deLagnel (#66694693)
I'm not sure that the year of birth mentioned on his memorial page is accurate. Shouldn't it be 1799 instead of 1744?

James W Keene
Hi,
I will do a bit more research but I think James W Keene was married to Alcinda Ann Dodson. They had a child in Ellen Keene in 1853. Your info on his death makes alot of sense as to why Alcinda was married such a short time during her first marriage.
Alcinda went on to marry John Thomas Bladen.
I will ask my mom if she has ever heard this story. Also have a relative that has done alot of research on the Keene/Dodson/Bladen families so I will check with him alos.
Thanks!
Eileen

RE: Sameul Bateman
Hello;
I have read your note on MP Cemetery in Alexandria. My family has been in Alexandria since before the Civil War. Samuel was my great grand uncle; his three sisters were Laura Ashton, Emily Frances and Mary Savenia Bateman, my great grandmother.

All are buried within MP Cemetery; Laura with her McKenny husband and some of her family; Mary with her Bailey husband and some of her family; Emily with Samuel and her mother Cecelia Dishman Bateman, my second great grandmother.

Other family members buried in Alexandria are in the Penny Hill, Bethel, First Presbyterian, Trinity, Union Cemetery, Alexandria National Soldiers, St. Mary's, St. Paul's and Ivy Hill Cemetery, plus quite a few in Mt. Comfort.

I appreciate your work in the MP cemetery, it is sadly neglected. Would you consider transferring the MP cemetery records you oversee for these folks to me?

They are in my "Schilling" family tree on Ancestry if you want to confirm. In the meantime, I'll try to continue to add links and information. Thanks, Eric Schilling

Hi,
I see you have a memorial or so on the Cloyes family. If you are interested, I did a pretty extensive report on the family last year. I descend from Peter's brother Thomas. The early generations of the family have a pretty tragic history between early Indian wars and the Salem Witch trials. If you are interested, I would be willing to share.
