RE: Stone
Good Morning Teeny, Thank you very much for taking the time to go to St. Joseph's and ask for information about my family. You are very thoughtful and so generous to use your time to try and help me locate information about my Grandparents Walter H. Stone and Elizabeth H. Robey. I will call the phone number that you sent me. Maybe they can look up the records and e-mail me copies or maybe they have on-line access to digital records or indexed listings, like the Maryland Archives. I will be going to "the Brick Wall Session" on Saturday, May 14, at the Maryland Archives. . .I hope they might help me locate other documents to help me find Walter and Elizabeth and who their parents were. I saw you note the other day about Bernice (Wheeler) Stone and Helen Teresa Stone I am not sure about them, they might fit into my family, maybe related to Walter or his brothers or maybe Walter's father, if I had more of the names for the men, they might be married to one of these ladies. Did you happen to ask at St. Joseph's about a list or index or map of who is buried there? I was thinking, even if the graves don't have markers anymore, maybe the cemetery has a land plat that tells them where a body is resting. Anyway, I can't thank you enough for going there on my behalf, I really appreciate your help. When the weather gets nicer I want to come down to the Community College at LaPlata, I think they have some historical documents stored there. I looked it up on line and the website suggests making an appointment or at least calling ahead in advance to let them know who I am and what I am looking for. So that is something I am looking forward to. . ."a road trip". Thank you again and it has been a real joy connecting with you. Sincerely, Mary Pumphrey -- searchervlc P.S. When I get down there I am going to try and find that headstone I told you about the one that is "Francis W. Stone", it is in the Norris Family Tree, because this might be Walter H.'s father or brother. This grave stone is not in Find A Grave, it was on and the caption under the picture says it is St. Joseph's Church. Another piece of the puzzle, maybe. . .I hope you have a happy day, it is raining here. Best wishes...

RE: Memorial #116335417 Mary E. Huntt Stone
Oh Teeny thank you so much for volunteering to go to St. Joseph's to ask about burial information about the members of my Stone family. I think I have found that as far back as the 1820 Census there were only six families with the head of household listed with the surname 'Stone'...I found this by accident because on if I hadn't opened one of the records I would have passed over it because it was listed as 'Cecil County Maryland' but by clicking on the actual record and opening it I found it was really the records for Charles County. Do you think all of the graves at St. Joseph's are marked? If not, I wonder if they know or have a list of everyone buried there? I think my Great Grandparents Walter H. Stone & Elizabeth H. Robey were married there in 1847 or 1848, I don't know where they are buried. I wonder if they have or know where or even if the records are available for just ordinary family members because Georgetown never responded. Also, I found a reference on-line in Charles County Maryland Early Colonial Settlers that leads me to believe that my Grandparents Thomas J. Stone & Mary G. Marr were married on 15 Jan 1886 by Rev. M. McDonald of St. Thomas. Do you think St. Thomas would have a record of this, if so maybe I could write to them to request a copy. Is this St. Thomas connected to the St. Ignatius Cemetery at Oxon Hill because my Grandparents Thomas & Mary are buried there at St. Ignatius Cemetery at Oxon Hill near the Rosecroft Race track. I will keep looking for any items you post on Find A Grave or e-mails back to me. . .I feel like I have met a new friend on this journey of mystery and adventure as I try to find my place in the six Stone Families that I found in the 1820 Census, I just wonder where does my family fit into the history of early Charles County? I know they were farmers and stayed in the area of Port Tobacco, Hill Top & Middletown. Thank you once again for trying to help me. Sincerely, Mary (searchervlc)

RE: Memorial #116335417 Mary E. Huntt Stone
Hi Teeny, thank you for answering my request for information about Francis W. Stone; in addition, you are very kind to offer to help me locate information about my family. To say "Thank You" seems insufficient and I am at a loss for words to express my appreciation for your kind offer. I seem to have hit a brick wall in researching my family on my father's side and that is how I stumbled upon the Memorial #116335417 Mary E. Hunt. I seem to be stuck at my Great Grandfather Walter H. possibly Henry Stone born about 1817 and died after 1880 and his wife Elizabeth H. possibly Harriett Robey. I found their names on my grandfather's death certificate. He is Thomas Jefferson Stone born in Charles County Maryland 23 Aug. 1853, married Mary Agatha Marr, according to my Mom, at St. Joseph's Church at Pomfret but I found another reference that they were married at St. Thomas' in Charles County but I don't know where that is. I think Francis Winfield Stone was born in Charles County Maryland in 1849 and I believe he is the brother of my grandfather Thomas Jefferson Stone both of them being children of Walter H. Stone and Elizabeth H. Robey. I found a picture of a tombstone for Francis W. Stone, not the same one you have in Find A Grave but another one with just his name and death date of 6 Nov 1896 at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Charles County Maryland. This is not in Find A Grave and it is supposed to be at St. Joseph's. I was hoping that information about Francis might help find more information about Walter H. Stone & Elizabeth H. Robey. I would love to know if the Francis W. Stone buried at the grave with the date of 6 Nov. 1896 is my grandfather's brother and I would love to see his picture on Find A Grave. Also, I sent an e-mail to Beth at St. Joseph's asking her if they had information about Thomas & Mary's marriage but she said those documents are at Georgetown University. . .I wrote to them but they have never answered my request. Once again, how can I ever thank you for answering my note & I hope this note isn't too rambling. . .sometimes when researching the names and dates, it seems like they all start running together and over each other till I say "who am I looking for"? because my Francis W., I think Francis W.'s father was named Francis and born in 1782 and married Jane Doyne, that she was born about 1782, then there are all the Thomas, Walter Stones and the Walter Marrs and my Marys and Harrietts all start running together. Well, I guess a lot of others have the same overlapping names. The mystery continues. Sincerely, Mary (searchervlc)

Memorial #116335417 Mary E. Huntt Stone
Hi Teeny, I am researching my grandfather. He had a brother named Francis Winfield Stone and I know that my grandparents were married at St. Joseph's Church at Pomfret, Maryland. I have been searching the Cemetery records for other family members, trying to fill in information about my grandparents, so when Memorial #116335417 opened and revealed Francis W. Stone as husband of Mary E. Huntt Stone, I was hoping there might be some other family names listed. Did you have access to any of the church's records; if so, do you happen to know any other family names, also, does the 'W.' listed here stand for Winfield? I have written to Georgetown University because I was told that the records for St. Joseph's are stored at the University; however, I have not received a reply to my request for information about my grandparents. Looking forward to hearing from you, it is so nice that individuals, like you, take the time to document and post these pictures for all of us. Sincerely, searchervlc

Matthew Thomas Lightner - duplicates
You seem to have created 2 memorials for Matthew Thomas Lightner at Trinity Memorial Gardens (# 122399450 & # 122399454) at almost the same time. I started to add a flower for him, but cancelled it when I realized the 2nd memorial had the photo.

Request to Add Photo to Memorial
I added a memorial for Mildred E. Hall, #142438420. wife of Fred W. Hall, #122398882. Since you created the memorial for Fred and included a photo of his grave marker, would you please post the same photo on Mildred's memorial since her name is on the same marker? She passed away a few months ago. Fred was an uncle to my first husband, Thomas Hall. I am a contributor to Find A Grave, and I appreciate your dedication to this great project. Thank you.

Thank you very much for fulfilling my transfer request on Find A Grave.

I lost my son to a senseless homicide at the age of 17 and to come across this picture meant a lot to me. Antonio McVicker was the most compassionate and caring person I knew. Thank you for what you do!
