Greetings and God bless you!
Hi Jim,

I am working with several groups of Sisters cataloging the whereabouts of graves of their members. Please see my RSCJ virtual cemeteries, et al. Currently, I am working on the cloistered Dominican Nuns in the U.S. I thank you for all of the work you have put into preserving the Catonsville, MD, cemetery. Please don't think that I am trying to be smart with you -- I am not; but, it is important for family and friends to find these Sisters, so a religious name and a family name in the memorials is imperative and must be able to be searched. I noticed at the Catonsville cemetery that the Sisters' religious names are listed first, then their family names (e.g., Sister Mary Catherine, religious name, Mary May, family name). May needs to appear as the surname so that it can be searched.

I am adding your memorials to my virtual cemetery for the OPs. Thank you again for your hard work and God bless you for memorializing these Sisters. Remember, they are powerful advocates.

Thank you,

James is my 2nd Gr-Grandfather. I am from Princeton, WV and began working on my ancestry a few years ago. I recently found that he was buried in Oakwood but when I visited Princeton a few weeks ago, couldn't locate him. You picture will certainly help.

Coursey / Rosa Bonheur Cem.
2 items =

1) went to Coursey family cem.w/D.Cosgrove and he's doing a film abt. Lansdowne history. Perhaps you could team up w/him with your research/photos? It would be great if you joined up with us in this ongoing project. So far, we are also speaking at Lansdowne Inn 2nd Thurs. of every month. You'd be a welcome speaker.
2) Rosa Bonheur Cem. needs documentation. Honored police dogs & other famous animals, along w/people, are buried there and the whole place is under developer's threat. I don't know the whole story and where it stands on that issue right now, because last heard is waiting for HoCoGov on zoning issues / where & when developer is going to change it, but it could use your help in telling a story to survive, and you can walk the grounds off Rte 1 (opp. Meadowridge Cem.). Some of the animals are listed in Findagrave.

Please contact me directly for more info. Networking we could be a historical service outlet for you too. Please consider these ideas. Thank you.

Ogle family cemetery
Hello. There are family plots at Loudon Park Cemetery from the Ogle family (my ancestors) that say moved from Ogle family Cemetery on the stones.
In Atkin Smith Ogles obit the farm he owned was called "the wildnerness" in Baltimore County.
Do you have any idea who may hold the records for this cemetery as many relatives are still unaccounted for?
Thanks so much,
Tina Mckee

Westview Memorial Park
I have recently viewed your videos of this cemetery and would like to chat with you. I have an Uncle who is buried there and am interested in finding his grave. I would also like to do what I can to see if we can get this cemetery cleaned up by the state. I do not live in Maryland and only recently found out my Uncle's life history. Please let me know how I can contact you personally.

Katie Sowers
Spring Grove State Hospital

I seen that you had added names and photos for the Spring Grove State Hospital. I was wondering if you seen a Laura Margaret Sowers. She was admitted to the hospital in 1941. She was buried in the cemetery on 21 Jan 1942. She was married to Walter Carroll but she was admitted to the hospital under her maiden name. Any information would be helpful.

Thank You,
Katie Sowers

RE: Peerce Cemetery.
Directions to Peerce/Pierce Cemetery. From 695 take Dulaney Valley Road headed outside of the beltway toward Jarrettsville Pike. Stay on Dulaney Valley Rd (straight) when the Pike splits off to the left after the bridge. Loch Raven Reservoir will be on your right. You go 1-3 miles and Dulaney Valley makes a sharp 90 degree turn. There's a building/restaurant/somethinglikethat on the corner. There's some trees on the right and then it opens up some. The cemetery is on the right back off the road just after it opens up past the trees. I parked by the trees and walked up there. It's an area where the high voltage power lines run. If you need more specific info than that let me know. Thanks for what you do. I just happened to spot it one day coming from the other way as I was on my way to check out The Eagle's Nest on Jarrettsville Pike. The Eagle's Nest (historic) was built by Thomas Marsh in the 1700s, his son Joshua took ownership after his death. I descend from his daughter Elizabeth who married Joseph Winks. Peerce was in the area in the late 1700s. I remember running across his name looking at the tax rolls for that area (Valley of Jehosophat, later named Dulaney Valley). The census area for that location is Balto County Ward 2. I'd have to double check my notes to get the Hundreds names if you need them. Anyway, from the looks of it and the location of the power lines, it looks like the cemetery property most likely falls under the power company. If not, it's mainly wooded beyond the cemetery and I have no idea who owns it.
