RE: the McCarthey's
You're very welcome. I almost didn't locate them since the McCarty's are not listed in the computer records but are the original records. But discovered them because I was checking for misspelled last name and surprise, there were the "McCarthey's"! Just curious, which way is correct?

Thank you
Thank you so much for taking the time to locate Miles White's burial plot. While disappointing to find out he has no grave stone, the picture of the plot area is most appreciated. Hopefully, we can provide him a memorial plaque to honor his life.

I have contacted Carole Conrad who created his memorial. I have found out that the death date that she used was actually his marriage date. I do not know when he died. Thank you for getting the information about him. At least I now know that he is not buried in the cemetery she has put him in. - Thanks, Cheryle in Indiana

RE: Blunts more info
Dear MTB,

Once again I'm much indebted to you for all of the effort you've gone to. You have confirmed that certain of my ancestors are indeed interred at Hollywood.

When I was unable to locate a trace of Harriet Blunt, I returned to the cemetery office and spoke again to Mabel Tomey (I believe that is her name). I figured she would at least have good records as to where Cornelia Blunt was buried as she didn't pass away until 1951. With the provided map, my wife and I looked everywhere but found no trace. Thank you for at least convincing me that Hollywood does keep good records.

I'm directly related to Mary J. Blunt, Harriet's daughter and Samuel's sister. She is buried in Washington, DC.

There are two historically important Richard Blunt's in Virginia history: Richard Blunt who was a member of the House of Burgesses, and Richard Blunt who was recorded in Jamestown in 1624. So far, I have been unable to link my Richard Blunt to either of them. He was the black sheep of the family.

After her husband committed suicide in 1860, Harriet attempted to hang herself from a beam in the attic. She was saved by a "servant." All the grim details were reported in the Richmond newspapers of the time.

We've driven through the old neighborhoods of Richmond. Many old row houses still remain. Richard is listed as a bricklayer in old city directories.

Hope you find bits of this family history interesting.

Sorry about your snow. We have too much sun here.

Best,

Robert Gerdes

Harriet Blunt & Blunts of Virginia
Dear MTB,

Thank you for your quick response to my photo request for my great great grandmother Harriet's grave site. You seem to know much about Hollywood cemetery. Could you please explain the reason for the absence of markers on post civil war graves?

I'm very interested in finding out more about her husband Richard J. Blunt (1817-1860) and the Blunt line which probably goes back to the earliest settlement of Virginia. Perhaps you are in a position to find something out.

I know much about Richard J. Blunt, but not his burial site. That may be for good reason as he committed suicide in March 1860 by drinking arsenic. He was a bricklayer in Richmond (Henrico County) and owned slaves.

If you have the means to determine who his father was, I'd appreciate it. Harriet was born in Williamsburg in 1819. I don't know her maiden name.

In any case, thanks again for your assistance!

Best,

Robert Gerdes
