Bio and Links
Bio Photo A longtime interest in genealogy and cemeteries paired with a fascination (alright, obsession) with local history brought me to Find A Grave. Wandering around cemeteries, researching and connecting the dots are the best aspects of genealogy for me. I'm also drawn to the design and typography of headstones--faux bois and Art Nouveau styles are my favorites. And sometimes a stone with the light hitting it just right demands to have its picture taken.

All information I've posted is in the public domain (and some sources have wrong data), but if you'd like to have it removed or changed--or if I've made a wrong intuitive leap, please let me know. Likewise, feel free to contact me to have a relative transferred. Please show me the courtesy of letting me know that you would like to reuse one of my photos. Unhelpful messages from people without a F-A-G account will not be responded to.

I do not know the Savery family but the 1930 census shows Lillian as a widow, and shows Irene's deceased father as born in Massachusetts. They were living with Lillian's sister Irene Weber. So I think this is Emerson Savery's family.
Thank you!

Hello ! I really wish whomever said he wasn't there wouldn't do that ! Their records are very good but not infallible. It looks like he shows up in Arlington's ANC Explorer App/website which is good.
I live nearby, and go to Arlington all the time. Not that long ago they used to check for records at the office by file cards and microfilm ! They have gaps so I do add and correct details on people there all the time, which also helps give me an excuse to keep going out there ! I have relatives there, but it's such a beautiful and vast place, it's easy spending hours out there.
I always keep track of the location and add or correct it. He is in section 44 which is a little out of the way section added later, behind section 18 & 19. Section 18 is mostly WW I vets, and section 19 actually has a lot of local D.C. colored troops, and Buffalo Soldiers from the Spanish American and Indian War times. On the other side of the little stone wall in the photo, is Ft. Myer not far from their little kids playground or daycare of some sort ! Sorry for going on but he is most definitely there !

Erichsen family
I don't know if you are related to this family, but I have added a number of bios and a photo volunteer recently went to Forest Home Cemetery to add a few photos to several memorials for the family.
