Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield. |
IF YOU NEED FAMILY LINKS MADE, PUT YOUR REQUEST HERE. MY EMAIL ACCOUNT HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING SOME ISSUES. THANKS
If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.
REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.
All men die...not all men really live.
I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA. Also, I am searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rdBattalion of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife names Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington County, MD.

|Ann T||Pending edits for Alexander family|
I have lots of edits pending with you mostly for the Alexander family. If you would rather transfer them instead, I would be happy to manage them as they are generational cousins to me.

Cecil J Marker
July 17, 1914.--- … 35-FOOT FALL FROM A CHERRY TREE FATAL
Sad Fate of Cecil, 14-Year-Old Son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Marker, In Locust Valley.
DIED FROM RARE DISEASE.
"Gas Bacillus" Entered the Wound When Broken Bones Came Through the Arm and Ran Into the Ground---Arm Amputated at Shoulder in Baltimore Hospital, But to No Avail.
Another sad and distressing fatality occurred last Saturday when Cecil, the 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Marker, residing in Locust Valley, at the foot of South Mountain, [near Burkittsville], fell 35 feet from the top of a pear tree and was so terribly injured that he died following the removal of his arm at the Maryland University hospital, Baltimore, shortly before midnight Tuesday night.
The young man climbed the tree, unknown to his parents, and began to shake the pears off. In doing so he lost his balance and fell to the ground. He was picked up by his father and brother, William, who carried him to the house and Dr. A. A. Lamar was summoned.
The arm was broken in two places between the elbow and wrist and the bones came through and ran into the ground. Dr. Lamar realized that the injury was serious and fearing lockjaw, took every precaution.
On Monday there developed a rare and fatal infection, known to the medical profession as "gas bacillus," a germ that comes from the ground and infects wounds. This bacillus was encountered when the broken bones, protruding through the skin, ran into the ground. The arm began swelling up like a balloon and Dr. Lamar at once realized the hopelessness of the case. Arrangement were made at once to take the unfortunate youth to the Maryland University hospital in Baltimore. At 9 o'clock Monday night the start was made in an automobile from the Model Garage, Mr. S. Leslie Shafer at the wheel. Dr. Lamar and the young man's father and brother, William, accompanied the lad. The trip was made in safety, the hospital being reached shortly after midnight.
The case was only the third of the kind ever seen at the hospital and while the surgeons did not believe there was any hope, the lad's arm was amputated at the shoulder. He stood the operation well, but at 6 o'clock Tuesday evening he suffered a sinking spell and death came shortly before midnight.
In such a condition was the body of the unfortunate lad that it had to be placed in a hermetically sealed casket. It was shipped to Boonsboro in charge of Undertaker Wm. Bast, arriving there at 9 o'clock Wednesday night. It was taken to the home of the lad's grandparents, Rev. and Mrs. A. W. Philhour, and on Thursday morning was brought to the home of his parents. Here brief services will be held this (Friday) morning, at 9 o'clock, by Rev. H. W. Zuse, of the U. B. Church, Myersville, after which the body will be conveyed to the U. B. Church at Boonsboro, where funeral services [and interment] will be held.
Misfortune has been hovering over the Marker family for over a year past, and Mrs. Marker, a daughter and one son are just now about over a long spell of sickness due to fresh paint at their home poisoning them over a year ago. For a long while all of them were unable to walk, being paralyzed. The son is not yet fully recovered, but is able to walk about. Mr. Marker and family have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. [BRUNS CITZ 17JUL2014]

Thank you SO MUCH for taking and posting those pictures of Eliza and Annie Davis from the Bakersville cemetery! I live in the West and am in college so it would be very difficult for me to go there and take the pictures myself. Thank you again for the time that you spent to go and find those graves and get the beautiful pictures!!

|David Gladwell||Hedges Chapel Cemetery|
Birdman, thanks for all those plots you recently put in for the Hedges Chapel Cemetery. I am the Treasurer for both the Chapel and the Cemetery and I am working on updating the records for the Cemetery. Would you consider transferring all your Hedges Chapel memorials to me? It would make my work a lot easier, and would be less on you.
