RE: Henry Joseph Ragan
i am going today to look for it, if it is a flat stone i may not be able to find it because we have snow on the ground. But i know the section they are buried in well.

RE: Chris
I found it yesterday and submitted it. They had posted it a few hours later. That surprised me.

I was out there looking for graves for a friend who is writing a book about the cemetery. He had "Mac Daddy" on the list but no grave location. I did an Internet search before I left the house and it didn't even say he was buried at Westview so I had my doubts. There were no pictures of it anywhere.

When I did happen to see the grave, I was really surprised. It is a beautiful one, the black marble is nice. But I didn't realize that my reflection is in it, if you look closely. I guess the admins were okay with that!

Did you notice the small pumpkin with "RIP" in front of the grave?

RE: Chris
It's at Westview Cemetery. I was actually looking for someone entirely different when i stumbled across it.

My relations are the other side - the Burden/Bordens. They married into my Robbins line. The names you mentioned are not ones I'm familiar with.

RE: Alice I Weissert Meehan
No - I am no relation to any in that family. I probably got the information that is not on the headstone from either FamilySearch or from the Marshall County marriage indexes available at

RE: Morris Smith

I transferred his memorial to you. I didn't contribute the memorials on Find A Grave for the other people that you mentioned, so I cannot transfer them to you. If there are memorials for them you will need to notify whoever contributed them about transfers.

No, I am not related to Morris Smith. Sorry, I can't help you with the other people that you mentioned.

I got took this picture rather easily. I am not quite sure on the location since it has been a couple of years. I do remember however it was near the Mausoleum and almost completely covered by bushes. It is my understanding, the Cemetery does not want to be known as "The Mobster Cemetery" so they will not reveal the location of them.

RE: Effie S Duvall [Edit Name]
I visit there about 1-2 years ago and have lots of pictures of grave stones. There are a lot of Robeys there. I also have some background material about the adjacent church I'd be happy to share. My email address is if you want to send me an email.

Thx - Bart Robey

RE: Effie S Duvall [Edit Name]
Not that I know of, although I don't have any contacts with descendants of the "Tenleytown" Robey ancestors. Since James William Robey had nine children, there has got to be a lot of descendants. I haven't been able to find in my research who/where they are though.

RE: Effie S Duvall [Edit Name]
Yep. One of Effie's brothers is my great grandfather - Albert Fairfax Robey. Effie's maiden name is Effie S Robey.

Here is a link to the Tenleytown Historical Society website that mentions Effie.

There is also an interesting book about Tenleytown called "Tenleytown, D.C. - County Village into City Neighborhood" by Judith Beck Helm. Effie is mentioned on Page 145, in the caption about the picture.

Thanks - Bart Robey

RE: anna M Lake
Naoli Andese Morrison 5/30/1863 - 1936 was the younger sister of my great grandmother, Alice Virginia Morrison Swisher 7/16/1860-3/15/1943. I assume Anna Lake was the daughter of Naomi and John Lake, but do not have any other information. I have posted a lot of old tin-types from my grandmother Lucy Swisher's album, but there are pictures I don't know. The picture of Naomi Andese (that I posted on her gravesight) is when she was 17, so I imaging it was after she married John Lake because there is a picture of him too. Other Morrisons in the album for which you may have an interest are (and these are all around 1880):
Mag and Will McWhorter? and Mag and Jack - don't know who is who; Hester Anne Morrison, Ed Morrison, William Morrison (old man)- probably John Brake Morrison's father; Bascom Morrison (all above middle aged. Then a young teen Allie Hinzman would be Rachael's daughter; a yound Mead Roger Olive's son; Wayne Morrison age 17; Dale Morrison about 2 years; Allie Hinzman about 5 yrs - Rachael's daughter;Basconm Morrison and Mobray, a cousin Mat McGee (no idea); teen Addie Lawson; Albert Morrison; then there is a Nellie Starcher - no idea who that is. If you have any of these graves, I will add the picture.

Parklawn Memorials
I have not had a problem taking photographs there. I have photos of every memorial I've added. I just have not had time to upload all of them. It is a huge cemetery with thousands and thousands of burials and I can only spend an hour or two at a time there when I am in town. I am not going to add the sections (like Garden of Remembrance) to all of the memorials. There are just hundreds of them and I do not have the time. If anyone requests a photo or info, I am always happy to do it one at a time. If you have a great deal of free time, please consider going through the 100 or so photo requests and finding those headstones and photographing them (or sending me the exact location so I can do it on my next trip). Some have been waiting for years and I have not found them in my wanderings through the grounds.

I am not familiar with anyone named Sperry.

There is no grave marker for Samuel S Miller that I know of. I do however have a photo of him on his Find A Grave memorial. What marker do you know of for Samuel S Miller in the Potomac Methodist Church Cemetery?

Added by JMac on Sep 12, 2013 6:22 PM

RE: anna Ardinger
The church office told me that she was buried next to her husband, William, in Plot C9. Usually, when facing the headstone, a husband is on the left and his wife is on the right. Would need to verify with the folks at the Church to be sure this is the case with William and Annie. She also has a half brother, Samuel S Miller, that is buried in this cemetery in an unmarked grave next to his wife, Lydia. Why do you ask?

I didn't have any problem photgraphing at Pine Lawn. If there is a funeral nearby I wait respectfully until it is over, but never had a problem.

RE: Morrisons
My grandmother wss Lucy Swisher. Her mother was Alice Virginia Morrison who married Alvin Swisher. They are buried at Hebron Cemetery in Spencer WVa. Alice had 9 brothers and sisters, but the site for the children of John Blake Morrison and Polly Ann Hershman only had 8 of them. I added Alice (my Great Grendmother) and pictures of a lot of the brothers and sisters. Also pictures of John Blake and Polly Ann as well as John Blake's father, William Bascom Morrison.
I found them on the site you created, and made the appropriate links to the rest of the family I know.
