Bio and Links
Bio Photo (Desperately hoping someone, anyone, will create a new website called FIND AN OBIT. This is not the place for adding someone who passed away yesterday especially when often there's no cemetery or disposition even mentioned. Many times family would like to add their own loved ones & resent having to wait for a transfer, if they even receive one. Hats off to those Find A Gravers who dig out the old obituaries & add them to memorials. That's what makes this site so helpful for genealogy purposes. Adding this week's death total is just morbid & ghoulish, especially when three people add the same person on the same day. Who was first? Numbers shouldn't be the goal here! Just my opinion)

My interests are genealogy & history, especially military history~God Bless our veterans & active duty servicemen & women!

I really enjoy visiting cemeteries searching for ancestors & always try to take some other grave photos while there. It's fascinating to read some of the older inscriptions & see the style & design that went into the older monuments.

Find A Grave is the best site on the web & has helped me a lot. It's enabled me to find family members who moved away years ago & some that I thought I'd never find.

We've all lost loved ones, wonderful people we'll never forget. This site gives us an opportunity to remember them with photographs, obituaries, family stories & monument photos. It's always a great feeling when someone finds a family member that they'd been unable to locate. I'm sure that's what makes this site so very popular!

I'm always happy to transfer family members or make corrections or additions! I'll gladly remove a memorial, also, if requested. Feel free to use any of the memorial photos I've posted for your family tree,, etc.!

Hallie Z. Pettit
The Hallie Z. Pettit you have linked to someone named Lohrman Andrew Zerbel is NOT, in fact, his mother. She IS my maternal grandmother. She was born, raised, and died on the eastern shore of Virginia and gave birth to 8 children; none of whom were the gentleman named above. I have no idea where you got your erroneous information but I beg you to please make the necessary correction. Thank you.

Buntings in Nelson Cemetery
Sorry, I meant I had put the Bunting entries in Nelson Cemetery, Worcester Co., MD, instead of Nelson Cemetery in Accomack Co., VA.

RE: Bunting in Nelson cemetery
No, I am not directly related to the Buntings in question. My husband's grandmother was a Bunting and most on the Delmarva peninsula are related in some way. I originally created memorials for the couple and put them in the Nelson Cemetery in Sussex Co. Just realized that was a mistake, so I deleted my entries, but didn't want to delete the obituaries.

RE: Martha Logan
Thanks very much for the transfer, Dee. Also, thank you for the time and effort you gave to Martha's memorial page. I will take good care of her. There are a lot of Logans out there. You may be hearing from me again.
Many thanks!

Martha Logan
Hi Dee
Thank you for managing the memorial for Martha Logan at Mt Moriah. She would be my grand aunt. If you would like to transfer her memorial to me, I would be happy to manage it. Thanks so much for all you have done.

Elizabeth Carroll Fitzhugh Smith
Here is additional information on Elizabeth (aka Bessie) Carroll Fitzhugh Smith, born June 24 1841 in Hagerstown, MD--died in 1918, Hagerstown, MD, married on February 7, 1866 at St. John's Church in Hagerstown, MD (and later buried there), Greene Smith (1841-1880) of Peterboro, NY, who was the son of abolitionist Gerrit Smith (Utica, NY, Mar. 7, 1797--Peterboro, Dec. 28, 1874) of Peterboro, NY and his wife Ann (aka Nancy; a common nickname for Ann at the time) Fitzhugh Smith (Jan. 11, 1805--Mar. 6, 1875) whose brother was William Hughes Fitzhugh, husband of Marie Antoinette Hughes. Thus, Greene and Bessie were 1st cousins. Gerrit's wife Ann Fitzhugh's father was William (Oct. 6, 1761--Dec. 29, 1839). One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence was Charles Carroll, of Baltimore (his son Charles Carroll, Jr.'s home is located on the Johns Hopkins University "Homewood" A & S campus and is open to the public) and one of his relations was Charles Carroll, the Barrister, also of Baltimore (whose home is open to the public as well). See new biography, "Greene Smith & the Wildlife" (2015) by Norman Dann, Peterboro, NY

Dr Samuel Young
I added a picture of an obit for him. Wonderful idea you mentioned above! If I knew how, I would most certainly do it. Thanks
