|CHerr||RE: duplicate cemetery issue|
Contacted findagrave and their response:
It looks like by the maps on the two cemetery listings that they are individual and distinct separate entities, so it would be in error to merge the listings.

|CHerr||duplicate cemetery issue|
when I get a chance, there are many more than fridingers that are duplicates. I may have to contact findagrave at some time in the near future to combine the cemeterie memorials than maybe they will remove the later for the earlier memorials..
I was just adding mine to the first monkton cemetery for the names on the monuments I took photos of and never saw the other cemetery.
I have just looked at my file of photos I took that day. The camera files go from 5510 to 5516 for all of the Fridingers. So they were all in the same or adjacent lots.

|CHerr||we may have duplicate cemeteries|
When I took photos of the monuments at Monkton Church cemetery I looked on findagrave for the folks and found the cemetery where I added then my photos and if necessary the memorials. I added mine to the Monkton site that was there So my photos for fridinger are on his lot.
Not until your email does it seem that the cemetery is also there under another name.
So that the cause for the confusions.

|Russ Hudson||RE: CCGS question, maybe|
By law you can get access to family cemeteries that are on private property usually by asking permission and it is granted by the owner. They cannot deny family access. While the Pleasant Grove Cemetery is not on private ground and is fully accessible it is surrounded by private homes, including the old church which is a private home. There is no parking lot, just a driveway. The cemetery is fully fenced. It is administered by the Sandymount United Methodist Church to my knowledge.
|Russ Hudson||RE: CCGS question, maybe|
The Sandymount United Methodist Church and the Sandymount Pleasant Grove Cemetery are almost directly across the street from each other. The pictures are current and accurate on Find-A-Grave. Their history is intertwined in that Pleasant Grove broke away and then later rejoined. Pleasant Grove is less than an acre in size and is pretty well documented. There are very few new burials here. The church is a private residence today.
I think there is some confusion with Pleasant Grove in Baltimore County, as Carroll County was not founded until 1837, so in older histories it may state Baltimore County. The churches were also on the same circuit in the late 1700's and 1800's and joined together to fund a parsonage for the circuit preacher along with other local Methodist churches. Hope this helps a bit...
:) You're welcome ("ditto")...
On the opposite side of the Hein grave stone were Claude Bossom, who already has a FindAGrave memorial, and Robert B. McCorkel (1912-1960), who does not. Let me know if you will be creating a memorial for him.

I noticed 2 other Harris grave markers next to the one for Charles Harris you requested, so I made memorial pages with photos for them as well in case they were members of the same family you needed.

You're quite welcome; it's a pleasure to assist. As you probably noticed, one of the markers also included Mary Wersten; let me know if you are interested in adding a memorial for her, in which case I will add the photos there as well.
You may also have noticed that I added the photos to Mary Braitch's memorial, even though her body was donated to science and not actually buried at Loudon Park. Since her name is on the marker, I thought it would be appropriate to do that. However, if you would rather not have those photos on her marker, please let me know and I will remove them.

I have been through the whole Gardens of Faith Memorial Gardens. I was able to find Louis Maivelett, Jr. today, but not Louis Maivelett, Sr. (I created a memorial page for the son.) If you wish to call the cemetery office to request a location for the father, I would be willing to try again to find his marker.

In order to have your request fulfilled, please call Lincoln Cemetery and ask for the exact location of the grave. They can be a little difficult about giving out this information and it may take several calls. Just keep bugging them. 301-864-5090. Post the location in the memorial page in order to have your request fulfilled. It is impossible for requests to be fulfill the request without this info because they will not give it to us. The cemetery is huge and can not be walked. Thanks
