Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from New Mexico.
I've been excavating and cataloging pioneer cemeteries for over 30 years. In the 1980s I even published a few works on the subject. Like most of you, I'm also an avid genealogist. While I enjoy finding the graves of famous people, I'm more interested in the common soldier and pioneer. Every one of them has a story.

As for genealogy, I am currently working on the surnames Trine, Minter, Dozier, Shackleford and Marquez. I'm also collecting the names and graves of the Maryland 6th Infantry.

I'm usually "on the road," so my photos come from wherever I happen to be. I've had the pleasure of meeting hundreds of wonderful people who share this love for history. Contact me if I can be of any help to you.

ABOUT TRANSFERS: I am happy to transfer anyone who is not my direct ancestor.

RE: Thirsk - Graceland Cemetery
Thank you so much for the memorials and for taking those beautiful photos. I was thinking how glad I am you got the photos, those headstones are in bad shape.
Thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness
Yes, I will request Hannah's memorial too
Many thanks

RE: Noah and Mary Kelbaugh
Sorry - nothing on Mary Minter. I did find a death certificate for a grandson of Noah and Susan. Parents are John F Kelbaugh and Sarah L Leonard. He died at age 14 by drowning in the C&O Canal July 5, 1912 in Frederick Co., was buried in Oella Cemetery in Balto Co. I entered it in Find a Grave, will later add death certificate to site.

RE: Noah and Mary Kelbaugh
I have no more ideas. The Sun Paper is mostly computerized now so I can check death records for several years around her death date - takes just minutes. Don't expect anything, but will try next week as I will be doing records for myself and a friend.

RE: Noah and Mary Kelbaugh
Do the court records say Mary died in Baltimore City or County? If county, death records do not start till late 1800's. If city, the records start in 1875, but doctors were slow about following the law and many early ones did not get recorded. If she died in the city, there might be a Sun Paper record. Did you get to the Law Library across the street from the archives? They have the Sun Paper back to 1835. I can check there if you did not.

RE: William H. Kelbaugh
I live about 10-15 minutes from the Maryland archives and will be going there June 22 to get some Kelbaugh death records. Is there anything you would like me to look up for you? How did you get interested in Noah Kelbaugh and family?

RE: Alice Fowler
I wish I knew the answer to the mystery of her many names. I am descended through a Zombro line so every now and then I pick at a thread to see where it takes me. That line is so tangled I may never figure them out. It seems that there are always more mysteries in that line then answers!

RE: Noah Kelbaugh
Think I found Noah,s son in 1870 census. 13 year old William H Kelbaugh in home of John Kelbaugh - age35 and his wife Mary - age 23. She is too young to be his mother. John is one of Noah's brothers.

RE: Noah Kelbaugh
I found about the document about the Kelbaugh brothers, scanned it and put it on your Noah Kelbaugh Find-a-grave. I can remove it if you don't want it there, but this is the easiest way to get it to you. Don't think I have any thing else for you

RE: Noah Kelbaugh
I do not trust other peoples trees in I only use verifiable records. I had problems being attacked about my great grandfather too. People had written a book, had it published and would not admit they were incorrect. As a child my grandparents took me to the memorial I have on Find-a-grave. For a long time I could not connect Noah and Adam. A man in California helped. He had a hand written history of his wife's Kelbaugh family. He quoted the part that said " Adam came to visit along with his half brothers Noah and Enoch" Might have been one more. I need to find that message.

RE: William Henry Kelbaugh (part two)
I forgot to tell you that Noah and Enoch Kelbaugh were brothers. Noah's son William was born in 1856, Enoch's son was born in 1858. In the 1860 census, William, age 4 was living with grandparents, John H and Julian Kelbaugh- granddaughter not listed. Cannot find her in 1860. In 1870, granddaughter Julian is living with grandparents, but cannot find her brother. Could he have died or is he living with other family members?
