Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Southern Maryland and have been assembling my extended family's genealogy for the last 15+ years. I continue to work on the genealogy in the fall and winter as time allows, and am glad to run down cemetery photos locally. Prominent names in my genealogy are Keefe, Casey, Hickey, Howley, Welsh, and Lally in New England; Stevens, Stout and Grant in Philadephia and Central New Jersey; Willis & Brady in Virginia and North Carolina; and Legg, Lecates, Meekins, Minch, Sparks, Burris, and Schauber in the Eastern Maryland (DelMarVa) peninsula.

If you find an error in a listing that I created, please don't hesitate to let me know. While doing my own genealogical research, I also photograph and list many unrelated gravestones as time permits. In keeping with Findagrave.com policy, I will gladly transfer a memorial to you because you are directly related to that person.

RE: Thanks very much!
Hi Stephen, Glad I could help. Also, buried with Rebecca was a Reuben Tilton. Took a picture if you are interested in this man. His dates look like 1881 - 1907. I could send it to you if you would like.

Hi
Don't know how close you are related, but her stone is apart in a HOLE....... isn't broken, but hole needs to get done, I know the caretaker, will see what I can get done. ANY hole or whatever I need done ALWAYS gets done at milford odd for me by Scott Sipple,whose family owns sipple monuments, BUT this cem is different, so don't have any idea how much they will do for me.
Glad to help. BTW took pic of almost everyone in there, just going thru and adding as I get to them.."think" there are more Hurds etc...I have ADDED more memorials in there than were recorded, infact,at one point I had it up to almost 60 percent photod but since adding name, I am now down to 41 percent, :(

RE: Vincent Howley
I cannot believe that you could see Vincent on that photo! I went back to take an individual photo of Vincent's marker. I had to pick up meds at the vet, which is close by, so it is not really out of the way. I--and by that I mean my daughter--will post it next week. I am not that computer savvy, and it is her camera and her laptop that is compatible, but she is going away for the weekend.

The gravestone for Michael J(ohn) Howley is not nearby, but it is very noticeable as you drive in. The cross in the background is the one I posted--at the entrance to the upper level. The Francis and Martin grave site I photographed is at the opposite end of the cemetery.

There are a total of eight grave sites in the site that I photographed--all purchased (with burial) by Frances Howley. According to the printout the caretaker gave me, one seems to be empty. In addition to Martin, Frances and Vincent, there are four graves on the other side of the large Howley stone (the side with the flag and palm cross):

Mary Howley Burns (buried 10/3/1995) I am not sure of how she is related to the Howleys; however, she does not have a F-A-G listing that I can find.

Michael James Burns (B 7/30/1969) No. F.A.G.

Their son Shawn (B 9/19/1992). They also had a daughter Ann L. Burns (Robinson), who died in 2011)and a son Michael James Burns,Jr.(1941-2011) Ann and Michael have F.A.G. listings under Burns, but Shawn Burns does not.

There is also Agnes Mason (B10/28/2002). I have no idea who she is; she does not have an F.A.G. listing.

So, if you want to create memorials to Mary, Michael and Shawn--even Agnes if you know who she is--I will be happy to take the photos for you. Without the memorials, I have no where to put them, and I am not advanced enough to create them.

So, Vincent's photo will be attached shortly. Let me know about the other three or four.

Vincent Howley
You are welcome. I didn't take a separate picture of Vincent's stone--I thought about it, but I didn't--I am not sure why. If you look at the picture of the large stone with Frances and Martin in the foreground, Vincent's stone is betweem the large Howley stone and Frances' Stone. I have claimed the request and will return to St. Mary's to take a close up of Vincent's stone. Now that I know where the grave site is, it won't be that difficult. As you can see with more than a thousand graves, this cemetery is huge! Fortunately, there is a volunteer caretaker, who is in the process of computerizing this cemetery, and he showed me the site--I never would have found it on my own. There is a lower, newer cemetery, which is where I looked at first, and there is an upper older cemetery that is full. Martin, Frances and Vincent are in the upper cemetery. I didn't even know this was there until the caretaker showed me the site. The caretaker told me that Vincent was cremated and his ashes buried. That is why he is so close to Frances.
