RE: Edgecomb's Corner Cemetery
It may be part of the village cemetery now as there are Edgecombs buried there...

RE: Wade-Richard
How exciting! We love to find out these particulars of family life. My email is Another note: I also have the photo of Rev. James Richard's stone if you would like it. I did not post it to Find A Grave because it was already there, but it is on the reverse of the Wade-Richard stone. Mine is a more straight on than the one on the memorial. Was he also pastor at your church? ~ Sheri

RE: Wade-Richard
Forgot to ask...was the church called New Jerusalem Lutheran Church at the time Asa Richard and William Wade were there?

RE: Wade-Richard
Hi Edward ~ Thanks so much for contacting me! 1st of all, yes, you most certainly may use the photo. I can email you the original digital image, too, if you like. 2nd, you are right about his death location. I contacted another genealogist of the family that located Asa's death certificate in Chambersburg, PA. My info had come from the book "John Bean of Exeter" by Bernie Bean (1970), which traces Asa's wife's Bean family. It reads: "Mary Louise Bean b. 1-1-1842, Frederick, Co., Va., d. 9-5-1925, Lovettsville, Va., m. 3-23-1869, Rev. Asa Richard, b. 10-20-1844, d. 5-9-1030, Lovettsville, Va. , both bur. in Lovettsville Cem. He was a Lutheran Pastor. 8 ch. all b. in Frederick Co. Va."

Obvious now that was misinformation to the author. I will make the changes to his memorial. And thanks to you, we now know which church he was Pastor of! BTW, Rev. Wade's wife, Ursula, is Asa and Mary (Bean) Richard's daughter, if you did not know that.
Let me know if you need anything else!

RE: John H. Froehlich (1870-1945)
Hello Edward,
Greetings from Pennsylvania.
I found a PA Death Certificate on for John H Froehlich, birth, 10 Feb 1870,death, 5 Dec 1945. Birthplace is Harrisburg, PA. His wife's name is Alice Orth. His occupation is listed as Artist. Father's name is John H Froehlich, born in Germany. Mother's maiden name is Mueller, no first name or birthplace listed. The informant for this data is Charles O Froehlich, of Harrisburg, PA. Burial is in Harrisburg Cemetery. Funeral director is Charles Baker.
Perhaps you could contact the cemetery at (717) 234-8661.
There is a John Froehlich, 1835-1914, and his wife,Christiana Mueller/Miller, 1840-1912 at Harrisburg Cemetery. These are probably John H Froehlich's parents.

Good luck in your search,

RE: Loudoun Rangers
Thank You, My wife and I look forward to hearing from you. I still find this pocket of union supporters a curiosity. But I remember hearing about an area in one of the Carolina's which also held a substantial presence of Union supporters. We appreciate your efforts as a trustee of this cemetery too.

Loudoun Rangers
Thank you for your work on the Loudoun Rangers. I am researching my wife's Harrison family, and just discovered the Find A Grave memorial for James William Harrison. What an interesting situation for these families to fight for the Union cause! My wife descends from a brother of this James W Harrison, named Lewis Cornelius Harrison. I just discovered that Lewis also provided a brief service for the Union cause, enlisting in Maryland, 3 April 1865 @ age 20. I have to wonder if another Loudoun Ranger, Thomas W Harrison is a near relative of these brothers. The photo/sketch which Jen Snoots provided of James William Harrison has the appearance of a possible Mulatto ancestry. My wife is waiting for her DNA results. It may suggest some more idea of the racial sentiments of this Harrison family. There is some suggestion that these Harrison's have a connection to the 2 US presidents. Tim Marvin

RE: Capt Simon Elliott Chamberlin
This article in The Washington Post mentions a descendant, who is also a historian. You might be able to track him down by contacting the reporter who wrote both stories.

The date of birth you submitted: May 8 1834 has been changed from May to June.

Two sources have June as the month of birth:

RE: Spannaus photos
There are a couple of photo volunteers that are trying to photograph all of the known sites for Woodland Cemetery. We are currently at 47% covered. Photographing the mausoleum was part of that effort.

Glad you are pleased with the results.

RE: Rev. F.A. Patterson
Just a note. The date for Reverand Patterson's death is the same as your Patterson. I have documented that date from the marker and the photo. I So the date is correct. However, I did not personally document his military service. So, I would definitely follow up with the Historical Society of Carroll County GA.

RE: Rev. F.A. Patterson

This is documented as described in the memorial.
They may be related but are not the same person.
The above is link to the West Georgia Regional Library.

If you click on the Pines Catatog and request Known Confederate Burials Carroll County, the location in special collections wil be given. The historical society has someone in the Special Collection's Room during the week. They may be able to research your name for you.

It most likely is a relative. The Concord Methodist is down the street from me. I can assure you from my personal survey all marked graves have been entered into Find A Grave. The Carroll County Cemetery Volumes have also surveyed the area every few years since the 1980's. There is no other Patterson with exact initial's.
