I am helping my mother with her genealogy research by locating our ancestors' graves. Then, I got involved with several friends, helping them create their trees and memorials. You can see the names we are following in my virtual cemeteries.
Along the way, I have found others' ancestors and created their pages. Now I am hot on the trail to document our ancestry to Col. Daniel Boone. And, to find the "Women of the American Revolution." If I have entered any information that is incorrect, please contact me for a correction. I want to keep the information as accurate as possible.
I'm happy to transfer management to family members, just ask! Please use the "Edit" tab and "Suggest a Correction" when doing so and remember to give your member# along with your relationship or reason for the transfer.
I believe that memorials should belong to family members whenever possible, as family have a personal interest in honoring their relatives and are better able to complete, maintain and improve memorials with additional details and research. I am more than willing to have family members "adopt" them.
Please feel free to use any photos I have posted in your research work. © Photo courtesy of Find-a-grave member #47361005

|BillRichardson||RE: Kenneth Keys|
He is on the Bayeaux memorial. He was killed on D-day. Aged 20. His 'ship' is given as HMS Quebec but it is the code for a land base, a so called 'stone frigate'. Here is a story about his grandmother:
Daughter of W.P. 'Bill' Richardson's Great Great Uncle, James Howey
Sarah was born in the last quarter of 1866, her birth was registered in the Rothbury Registration District. She was the second child of James Howey and his wife Dorothy (nee Hall).
She was recorded on the census of 1871, aged 4 and living with her family at Felton Mills, Felton in Northumberland. Her Dad, James was 34 and worked as a cartman at the mill. Mam, Dorothy, was 31. Sarah had an older sister, Elizabeth (6) who was listed as a scholar and the two younger children were Jane (2) and William (8 months).
Sarah's mother, Dorothy, died in 1879 and then her sister, Jane, died in 1881.
The census of 1881 showed Sarah as age 14. The family were living in West End, Amble where her father, James (44) was working as a coal miner. Her sister Elizabeth was 16, William was 10 and they had a new sister Esther, who was 8.
Sarah's father, James, died in 1881 not long after the census was taken and so did her brother, William.
In 1889, Sarah had a daughter, Evelyn. Sarah was not married and I do not know Evelyn's father was.
By the time of the next census in 1891, Sarah was 24 and was recorded at 47 Beverley Terrace, Tynemouth, working as a domestic servant. The family she worked for were called Crouch and Mr Crouch was listed as a grocer. Sarah's daughter, Evelyn, was in Edlingham with Sarah's aunt Jane Rochester (nee Howey).
In the first quarter of 1896, Sarah married Edward Duncan Richardson. Sarah was 29 and Edward was 31, their marriage was registered in the Newcastle on Tyne Registration District.
The 1901 census showed Sarah and Edward living at 7 Gibson Street, Amble. Sarah was 34 and had two children, Evelyn (12) ad Mabel (4). Her husband, Edward, was 36 and he was a house decorator.
Sarah's husband completed the census form in 1911 and stated that they had been married for 15 years and in that time they'd had 3 children, I am not sure if this number included Evelyn who had been born before their marriage ( and may not have been Edward's child). They were still living at 7 Gibson Street, Amble and Sarah was 44. Edward (46) put his ocupation as house painter and decorator. Only her two youngest children were at home, Mabel (14) and Robert (5).
I do not yet know when Sarah died.
His mother was Evelyn Howey. I think her address in Tynemouth is on the CWGC.
|Colleen||RE: Tetlow headstones|
I did a search on the Walnut Grove website and it only showed your 2 Tetlows. However, I will go by and get the 2 pics of those other 2 headstones for you. I don't recall the names because I was only looking for Tetlows. Will let you know tomorrow...

I made the requested change and will gladly transfer any listings to their family to maintain. I am just trying to list the names in the local cemeteries. St. Paul's I listed from a compiled list and have not gotten to the cemetery itself to take the photos of tombstones which I will do one of these days! Thanks for your input.
I'm researching my grandchildren's paternal lineage and Mathias Wisner is their 6xGreat-grandfather. Do you know exactly where Wisner's Prospect is? I believe it's in Harford County, but would like to know where it is so we can visit the ancestors' graves. Any advise is appreciated.

I have been attempting to clear some of the photo requests for this cemetery, and I wanted to let you know that an index that includes all burials up to 1910 does include him and a grave location (which I will send an SAC for.) I have not been able to locate any stone yet though. That particular section is on a steep hill and hasn't been mowed lately. I will try again before winter sets in.

|Dan Phelan||Mary Carroll Bach|
Hello, thanks for your suggestions for Mary Carroll Bach. Is this your family?
I added your suggestions to her bio. You likely noticed the other Unduch family members at St. Mary's.
|Paulene Coen||Pvt John Hoover # 15476679|
Thank you so much for the work you did on the memorial of my 5x great grandfather, Pvt John Hoover. And thank you for asking me if I wanted to manage it! You are gracious and I am very grateful.
|MissMarple51||RE: Joseph Armstrong-Sunset Hill|
J.D.Armstrong's info comes from the Spencer Co. Cemetery book. Let me go back and see again. No need for you to do it, as I live a block away from Sunset Hill. I was a bit hurried the day I was there, and looking at the photos I took, I think I was going in the wrong direction.
To the left of Ida Armstrong, was a huge gap before another stone which must have belonged to Frank Armstrong, as all it had on it were dates and they match up with him in the book.
Let me go over there tomorrow(Fri) and I'll look again.
As for the Joseph Armstrong that was on the requests, are you saying that this one(the Civil War one) belongs to him? That is the only Armstrong with no dates. The ones we do have don't match the request.
Please contact the cemetery for grave location
Sunset Cemetery: Phone: 614-878-4692

Cemetery notes and/or description::
Formerly known as Memorial Park.
NOTE: Photo volunteers need to have
written permission from deceased's

This does not apply to family members
taking photos, but to photo volunteers.
