Bio and Links
Bio Photo I decided to volunteer with Findagrave after finding information on relatives I would not of found otherwise and see where they are buried. Some critical pieces of information have been notated on Findagrave. For instance my mother told me her father died after a airplane crashed into the meat processing plant her father was working in and set it on fire. Without the critical year of his death from his gravestone on findagrave I would not of found out the whole story, a prototype of a B-52 had crashed into the plant near Seattle. Taking the photos is my way of giving back.

I also take pictures of memorials that have not been entered in findagrave and enter them, not just photo requests, especially those of veterans. I will happily release control of a memorial if you have a family link to a memorial I entered.

RE: Gravestone of George Riemensperger

Thanks for your reply. I'll check with Christ Reformed Church to see if they know anything. I just want the folks on to know that George Riemensperger isn't buried in Middletown, even if his gravestone somehow ended up there.

Gravestone of George Riemensperger

When did you take the photograph of the gravestone of George Riemensperger in the cemetery of Christ Reformed Church in Middletown, Maryland? (Or did you get the photograph from someone else?) George Riemensperger was buried in the German Thomas family cemetery on Stup Road (near Adamstown). The gravestones from that cemetery were later moved to the cemetery of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church on Ballenger Creek Pike. The last time I saw George Riemensperger's gravestone, it was in that cemetery, but when I visited the cemetery last month, I noticed the stone was gone.

I'm trying to figure out whether the stone in Middletown is a commemorative stone rather than the actual gravestone or whether the actual gravestone was moved from the cemetery on Ballenger Creek Pike to the cemetery in Middletown. Any information that you have that could clear this up would be appreciated.

Richard House photo--Thanks!
Hello Denise,
Thank you very much for the photo of Richard House's marker--it is greatly appreciated. Thank you also for entering veterans' markers. I am helping another researcher enter all of the WWII casualties markers from Maryland into Find A Grave. You can see the list for Frederick County at:
Most of my photo requests are for those Maryland casualties.
Thanks again,
Dan Phelan

RE: Mary J.Long
Sorry, it's been so long since I needed to answer you. I just did some more searching & have found that this Mary Jane Long was indeed the daughter of John Long & Barbara Smith Long. I found that she died at her sister, Sarah Ann Long Castle's home near Bolivar, Frederick, MD.
Thank you for calling her to my attention.

Mary J. Long
Hi Denise,
You have put a memorial up for Mary J. Long and linked her to John Long (1787-1823) & Barbara Smith Long (1794-1868). There is a photo of her marker & when you enlarge it, you see that she died 19 Jul 1883 and that she was 56 yrs. 1 mo. of age. That would have her born in Jun of 1827.
She can't be & wasn't John Long's daughter as he died in 15 Oct. 1823 & there is no record of he and Barbara having a daughter named Mary J.
There were other Mary J. Long(s), one b. in 1856, the dau. of Christopher Stephen Long (1790-1867) & Elizabeth Feaster Long (1794-1861). And another, Mary Jane, born in 1849, the daughter of Johannes "John" Long (1811-1901) & Racel Price Long (1811-1897). However, this Mary Jane was born in Cass Co., IL & died in Auburn, Nemaha, NE in 1933, her Find A Grave #52071983. She married Walter Samuel Parker in 1874 in Auburn, Nemaha, NE.
At any rate, this Mary J. Long needs to be unlinked from these incorrect parents.
Thank you for your help. Carlene
