Shanks
I have a copy of an obituary for Mrs. Mary Magadalen Shank who was buried in the Keyville Union Church. She was married to John Shank (have not located his obit). If this is the my John and Mary Shank,I am searching for the parents of John. The obit states that she lived with her son, Charles and her husband John had passed. Also, I believe their Charles to be married to a Edith, who is in this cemetery. I need any information from the burial cards and if there are other Shanks buried there not listed in Find A Grave on line. Thank you for your help.

Jacob Knipple #70267679
Gail,
Thank you for posting the memorials & photographs for Jacob KNIPPLE & his family at Keysville Union Cem. It was a great help in researching the Knipple families of Frederick Co., Balt. Co. & Carroll Co. MD. The transfers are much appreciated! We have tried to add info with sources that would help others to do further research. It would be a nice surpise if someone would have some family papers on the Knipple family with additional info.
Thank you!

RE: William Trine
Hi Gail,

First, thanks for the information on the Welk's. I've been trying to gather up the members of this regiment.

Now, about William Trine: I have this dilemma each time I try to research the Trine men. They seemed to use various names and I am never certain which one is proper. William's father was christened Emanuel Edwin at the church in Manchester, Maryland but his children all insisted that he was "Edwin Emmanuel."

I was aware that the draft registration listed William as "William Emanuel." He even signed his name that way on this form. However his two sisters (Ada and Vera) and his son Corliss all told me it was "William Edwin." The Trine history in the Carroll Country Historical Society Library also lists him as "William Edwin." In truth I cannot be certain, but I am always interested in getting my facts correct. For now, I think I will make a note on his memorial, and then hopefully I can get more evidence one way or another.

In 2001 I placed a new monument to Samuel Trine in Krider's cemetery,Westminster MD and also restored some of the other ones. Several people told me that I should have used another name beyond Samuel, but they produced no evidence. There seems to be a lot of bad information out there that keeps getting repeated. That is why I am always thankful to get corrections and additions.

You are welcome to use my photos for any non-profit purpose. Thanks for asking. Lots of folks have lifted these photos without permission, and it is nice to know someone has good manners.

How do you fit on the Trine line?

Take Care,

Eddie

searching
Ms. Hooper,
My name is Yvette Lynn (Pandy) Neyome. I am searching for information on my fathers side and I see you posted his obituary and a picture of his head stone. I was hoping you might have more information you could share with me. If so, please contact me pandanonious@comcast.net. Thank you so much. My father was Gerald Russell Martin, born March 10 1933 in Fries Va. and died May 25, 1989 in Westminister MD. Anything you could give me would be more than I have. Thank you so much.

Hi Gail.
I know it's been a long time since you wrote about the date of death on this memorial. I hope you don't think I was ignoring you; I haven't been, honest. I'm sorry for taking so long.
I have no clue what the information is. All I can figure is that I came across it during my research and passed along what little I found. Anyway, I've made the correction to match your picture. I have no reason to think the headstone is wrong.
Thank you.
Take care.
Lorraine.

Now I am not sure where I found the information about Emmaline. It was probably on the Internet somewhere.

A million thanks for your help on her memorial page. I can truly appreciate what you've had to do to get photos of stones that are not maintained. I just completed photographing 5,513 gravestones for Monocacy Cemetery and I have the blisters to show what it takes to uncover the sinking stones! THANK YOU again, Gail!

Eleanor Warehime photo
Gail, could I ask a favor? You posted a photo of Eleanor's gravestone and another person posted the same image, but it's more legible because of the time of day it was taken. Would you be willing to remove yours so I can add a portrait of Eleanor? I would greatly appreciate it. :)
