Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in cemetery transcriptions started with discovering my family history. The first cemetery I entered was Mount Olivet Cemetery on Frederick Rd located within Baltimore City, my mother's side, Durham, is buried there. I entered the Military at a very young age,17. I was stationed Futenma Marine Corps Air Station Okinawa, Japan, during the Saigon Evacuation. I joined the Marine Corps 9/72 and my service ended 6/76. After leaving the military I used the GI Bill to attend school finishing in 1987, majored in Business with a minor in IT. Some of the Surnames in my research include:

Bell, Beall, Birnie, Bowie, Bourne, Boutte, Broussard, Chesley, Clagett, de laHoussaye, Douglas, Dugas, Duffield, Harry, Key, Langla, Love, Provost, Scott, Syester, Williams just to name a few.

Greetings James

I've recently dug out an 1860's photo album that Mather said were from the platter side. My 2x great grandmother was married to Chas. H. Platter.

These pictures are from Chillicothe, Carrollton, Breckinridge, MO.
And one from Quincy, I'll. Several are unmarked therefore are copies. Mostly heavy set women in full skirts, men in union uniforms and men in typical dress.

Theres even one of " The Wild Men of Borneo" w/their manager. I've always wondered about that one. The original is currently listed on eBay and it is stamped Quincy, Il. too.

Please contact me if you are interested. Some are probably Harry members.

RE: Ada Ball Harry
James, Ada's maiden name was Wright. She married Thomas C. Ball on March 4, 1908 in Mercer Co., WV. It is only from that source could I find her maiden name and parents. Her death certificate did not include that information. Thomas died in 1923. She and Emmett Hannibal Harry lived together but were never married. Together they had Virginia Mae Harry in 1924. Virginia married John Borich, and had 2 children, Sharon and Johnny who live on the original Harry farm. It is on their property where the Harry Cemetery is located. Sharon is interested in the Harry family history, and was quite helpful to verify my discoveries. Larry

RE: Peter Harry 37015114
Hi James,

I'm not sure if the gravestone was buried in the ground or not. I do know Nancy did dig several gravestones up at the Brunswick City Cemetery. Then she cleaned them. They are very heavy to work with.

You would have to hire someone that works with gravestones to set it up for you. It would have to be set on a base.

I'm not even able to lift them anymore.

Sorry I can't help you.

Have a great day.

RE: Gertrude M. Harry
There are no other "Harry" surnames at Gridley/Biggs in Find A Grave. However, the following Harry surnames show up on the database for G/B Cemetery, but I do not know if they are related:

Harry, Alvin L. 06/17/1969
Harry, Festus Omega 05/18/1960
Harry, Gertrude M. 00/00/1925
Harry, Vera V. 08/02/1968

You can link into the G/B burials (by surname, alpha and date) by going to Burials on the Web at:

Good luck in your further searching.
