Bio Photo Hello, and welcome -
My name is Beckie, and I am the proud mother of four children that has been the sunlight of my days. They are all adults now, and its unbelieveable how fast your children grow. I can still remember my first taking his first steps!

i have been doing genealogy research for over 35 years. Started when i first interviewed my grandmother and got hooked from there. One of the reasons I joined find a grave, is because of my hope of finding the gravesites that I can only hope to visit.

I am busy with a project to document the history of the Major's Choice propery in Bel Air Maryland. Along with a great friend who lives next to the Philip Henderson home, we are trying to document the slaves that lived and worked on that property. In our research, we have expanded to the lives of so many prominent Bel Air residents of the time period from 1750 to the 1950s. 200 years!

In addition, I am working feverishly to complete my own project for my kids. See the above webpage for my project.

One in particular is that of Jerry Bridges who was a Vietnam War MIA for a very long time 1968-1994. And finally laid to rest in 2002 in Giles Memory Garden, Pulaski, Tennessee. If you live in that area, please, get a picture of his grave. FOUND AT MEMORIAL # 15123871 . Would mean the world to me. His name engraved first on my Vietnam MIA bracelet I received in 1971 and has been engraved in my heart ever since then.

Through my website I have come in contact with so many Choate family members who are eager to find more for their families. I am so happy to help, so keep it coming.

I have had the opportunity to finally go to Bourland Cemetery in Keller Texas to document for myself the information I've collected over the years for the Choate Family. Thank you to for the contributions of the Choate names to the Findagrave database. Much appreciated.
I am very excited to be a volunteer member of Find-A-Grave and look forward to any requests made by others to help them in their search!
May you all find peace in your hearts and may God shine his light upon you.---------------------

RE: Levi Emory
sure, adding it now. That was the first headstone I took at St Peter's. I wanted to get a better photo but I couldn't find the marker on the way out.

Elmer Communale
I saw your request for Elmer Communale's picture in Twin Valley Memorial Park. I have taken a lot of pictures but have not indexed them yet. Can you call and find out what section the person is in? Then I can search for them.

with the directions that she/her family found.
she is debbie burton.. maybe you can email her and take up the search where she left off.

gosh... that would be great if we could organize the searches...maybe some decade we might find the gravesite..on the plantations..
I will email her too and get her info and add it to what you do, IF you decided that it is not too much... digging, im sure...

RE: Gunpowder River Cemetery
GPS??? Ahhhhhh..sorry I would not know how to even come close to figuring that.

I will have to go into my records, I am pretty sure I have a copy of a deed transfer that gives a description as to the property. You know like "from this oak tree to that oak tree and a creek and I think it gave some miles but I will certainly look for that record.
I have at least 5 families that owned property in the Little Gunpowder River area. one on my Mom's side Puntenney's who lived just "above the mouth of the north Chesapeake bay inlet where they watched the bay for the British"

and if not mistaken the family, GREER's "plantation was near the falls" But the Greer's left Maryland, just after their father died I Believe..1716...

Wow... I wish I could come out and look (dig) with you. Just can not afford it at this time. but finding the property is my dream

I will keep your email at hand and see if I can find it this weekend..

RE: James Poulton
Taking the photo was my pleasure! I am on vacation in France and the Normandy landings area was a must-see for us. Knowing that the photos I took that day would be so valuable to family in the States made it all the more important to do.

St Joseph-Salvatore Russo
Hi Beckie-I posted a picture for Salvatore Russo. He is buried with his wife, Jennie (1894-1987) and his brother, Joseph (1895-1981). The year of death is different for Salvatore on the stone from what you have on his memorial page...I'm not sure why. Also, we still have snow covering some of the ground and I may have missed a military marker so I will recheck the location after we get more snow melt. If you want to add memorial pages for Jennie and Joseph, let me know and I'll post the pictures there too.
