Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired military. Genealogy is a passion but I slow down when football season arrives. Willing to help others as much as possible. I focus on my Stewart roots (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and the Marshall family on my mother's side (Virginia).

I have photo documented local cemeteries in my area of James City County, Charles City County, Williamsburg and York County, VA. Have also worked on cemeteries in Surry, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, VA and Hampton National Cemetery in Hampton, VA and on Richmond National Cemetery in Richmond, VA. I am currently working on Mount Calvary Cemetery in Richmond.

I have also photo documented several cemeteries in the Hilton Head Island, SC, Kitty Hawk (Dare County), NC and Leavenworth, KS areas while on vacation.

If I have added a memorial for one of your family members just let me know your Find A Grave member number and I will transfer it to you.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome. I hope to go to the Ravenswood Cemetery again, soon as I am able. I want to ask if they have a map of the plot layout numbers, etc. It is a very large cemetery, and I did not have a map. I picked out one large section, and just walked back and forth through each row, looking for the 4 names I chose to try to find for findagrave. That is how I found your ancestor. I enjoy helping others. Next time I go though I want to be a little more prepared, as it will take me forever to find names that way. :-)

Ron, thank you so much for completing these!
Myrnie was my aunt - my mother's sister, and, of course, Bobby Howard, my uncle by marriage.

RE: Solari/Whitlock plot at Mount Calvary, Richmond
Thank you SO much Ron!! I truly appreciate this, and yes--it has revealed more info for me. My grandmother's sister (Agnes, Memorial# 81551655) married a Solari. Such a large family they are!

Have a wonderful day!

Ron, I can tell you more about her parents--her mother was Mary Ann Mouser, descended from German Protestants who emigrated from Oeschingen in Wuertemberg to Philadelphia 1751. I think we're cousins, of a sort!!!

I. Mamer / J. Maurer @ Hampton NC
Two things about this record:

1. The Digital Archives at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Archives don't include an "I. Mamer" I checked it today.

2. During the Civil War, all records were kept in cursive & I have witnessed some UNBELIEVABLE 'conversions' due to misinterpretations of cursive records. One example is the conversion of "G. MAUK" in cursive to "G. MANK" on a headstone.

As a ironclad rule, Civil War regiments did NOT have a company "J". That's right, the "J" was SOOO obscure in the script of the day, creating great confusion, they skipped it completely. So they went, ABCDEFGHI_K. Can you imagine, "I" was 'safer' than "J" back then?

Combining the problems with "J" from the period with George Mauk's humpy letter problem, and guess what: One man's "J. Maurer" is another man's "I. Mamer" Yes, I'm saying... ...this is an EXTREMELY PLAUSIBLE misinterpretation.

Hi Ron,

I suspect that it is highly likely that Jame's middle name is Andrew but I have not yet seen a source for this. Can you provide one? It would be great to have to settle this elsewhere.

Hi Ron,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for listing my Grandmother in findagrave. I have been searching for her for 15 years! I had no idea she'd be in Virginia. Could you transfer her page to me? She is Jane Olivette Leonard #59598355 and I am Mary Richmond #47042214. Thanks again for your kindness and your time. -MARY DEE RICHMOND-

Mary is my second great grandmother and Ive hit a total brick wall on her parents. I think I found her family on the 1860 census but lose track of them. Do you happen to have any info on her parents or siblings?

Thanks in advance!
