Hi Craig,
I saw where you had stated on Beverly Broaddus Munday's site that he was your 3rd great uncle. Are you related to one of his siblings? Thanks for the info. Babs Hubbs

RE: Samuel Handy
Hello Craig,
Nice to hear from you. In fact I have ordered that book from the University of Michigan and it is due in any time.
I thought that perhaps you just threw out Samuel Handy's name in the hope of trying to find someone who had located the cemetery. I have looked through literally every cemetery in Somerset County, and have found hardly any Handys or Sewells. There are some across the bay in Arundel County, however. I have found them in the Savage-Sewell Cemetery.
Just this morning I sent out inquiries to the Maryland Historical Society, the Somerset Historical Society and the town of Princess Anne asking about the location of the cemetery. So far I have heard from one person asking the question of another about the e-mail address of a person who is said to be an expert on cemeteries in Somerset.
If we could find Samuel, I think we'll find a whole bunch of other people. In particular, I am after Mary Sewell (1658-1716). I have compiled a series of biographies on my line for which goes through Samuel (1646-1721) to Jonathan (1691-1744) to Charles (1729-1793) to Major John (1756-1828) to Abagail to married into the Coleman family and moved to Newark, Ohio, where their daughter, Mary Caroline, married my great-great-grandfather, William Montgomery Baldwin (1813-1892).
But, wait, I just received a message from a Maryland historian and it has an attachment. Can you send me your e-mail address? The message is long and it would be easier to send you a copy that way. It has some pertinent information you will be interested in.

Bye for now,
Mark Baldwin

Location of Princess Anne Cemetery

I am a descendant of Samuel Handy (1646-1721) and I located your placement of him on in Princess Anne Cemetery, Somerset County, Maryland. I am trying to trace his wife, Mary (Sewell) Handy, but can't locate her burial place, or, potentially, those of her parents, Thomas Sewell/Sewall and Jane (?).

Right now he is the only person located in that cemetery according to FindAGrave, but I presume that Mary is buried right along side of him. So my question to you is: where is Princess Anne Cemetery? Does it have another name? If I have to, I would like to visit the cemetery to look for Mary.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Thank you very much. Have also been contacted by a descendent of Lydia who now lives in NC. She is searching information. Lydia was a pioneer settler in Orleans County, one of my interest in local history. Take Care.

Hi Craig,
I have been researching an Orleans County Pioneer and his family, Alanson "Lansing" Bailey. We just had a dedication at the Bailey plot in Mt. Albion Cemetery commemorating the 200 year anniversary of the death of his brother Joel Bailey 10 Aug 1813 and Lansing's wife Zada 15 Aug 1813 (both dying of the same fever 5 days apart in Lansing's cabin), as well as a dedication of Lansing's War of 1812 veteran maker and flag. Lansing and Caleb Thurston were related by marriage I believe. Joel's wife Lydia Thurston was Caleb's sister. Do you know what became of her between the years 1813 and 1815 when she gave birth to Sarah Anne Bailey in Holland Patent, NY? I know she is also buried in Mt. Albion in the Thurston plot, having been removed from Bailey Cemetery in 1866. Lansing never mentions Lydia in his biography of his pioneer days in Orleans County. Thank you for your attention.

Felicia (Foltz) Hoffman
Agnes Whitlock
She is buried in the Bradbury Cemetery in Crawford County, this is also called the West York Cemetery. The York Cemetery is in Clark County, one is just down the road from the other. Agnes already has a stone picture also. You will half to remove your photo request and memorial if you loaded it at the York Cemetery.

Eastern State Hosp Cem
Craig, I don't know the entire time line, but in years past the area was turned over to a developer, a road was run thru part of it, they hit lots of interrments in the digging and I believe those remains were turned over to UK hospital for assessment. Also some of the remains in the very early years were given or sold to the Univ of Louisville for the medical dept.
Now with the new construction I know there were large pits where they did find some interrments, and I believe at least one was civil war era.
What has happened to all those "people" I do not know and am speaking from memory from attending some of the meetings. There is a small dedicated group working on getting the records, which ESH-"they" do not want to release, small wonder since they messed up the interrments so badly.
Google Eastern State Hospital cemetery and see if more information comes up.
Needless to say you will not find a person to go with the death certificate no a headstone save for the three in the little protected area.

There will be a a description of the project given in the hospital gym before going out to the cemetery. The remains will be in small wood boxes, with exception of the 1 iron coffin with the patient's name on it. Before the May 14th ceremony, we will have 2 meetings.

RE: Rhoda J Sampson Myers
The one volunteer near the cemetery photographed all the stones
and placed the photos on their respective memorials. There are so
few active volunteers in western New York and so it makes sense
to photograph entire cemeteries. I save the photos for requests
except in the case of Hopewell Burying Ground. Very often parents
are without stones on a lot containing stones for their children. I
am sorry that is the case - Paul

Craig, I'm about 115 miles from there, if there aren't very many requests there, if you ask for all relatives it sweetens the pot. Most folks drive 20-50 miles to the cemeteries. Glad I was able to help with your requests. Luella
