Bio and Links
Retired in Maryland. This is a hobby along with family genealogy. I am prone to honoring our veterans and police officers and am especially grateful to those from the State of Maryland. They are the reason we are able to rise every morning in a free society and do what we do on a daily basis. Every one who wears the uniform of the United States is owed a debt of gratitude by us. May God bless and keep them all.

Husband of who? #56792426
Just to clarify, the Highland Presbyterian Church Cemetery photo request for this findagrave entry may seem odd because there is already a photo. Your photo clearly shows "Husband" engraved on the the stone. Thank you for that. What we're trying to figure out is who LeRoy was husband to and hoping perhaps there's a nearby headstone or other engraving. So if you are there and could help, we'd be much obliged. TIA

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Jean Halford in Holly Hill Memorial Gardens(Memorial# 75974694).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Maryland Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Jdrhook [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Memorial 71584360
I have a request for a correction to Edgar's parents. The mother and father listed (Alice and Melvin) are actually his mother's parents, not Edgar's. It is a little confusing because Betty was a Bull who married a Bull.
My parents were very close friends with Betty and Edgar and I have many good memories of them. Thanks so much for correcting.

Father's grave
Thank you for putting my father's grave on here. I live far from where he is buried and this brings me much comfort.

With Great Gratitude and Compassion,

RE: Edward Lewis Mortimer, Arlintong National
Without even knowing Louie, then posting his photo to be shared with the world, it is an honor for me to be in touch! I would have been 4 F back in the day before I was even out of High School (bad knees, being a clutz didn't help, female and no guts). Without you, especially being a Police officer, there may not be half as many heroes in this world. It is not easy being in Law Enforcement. I appreciate, and those who know how to admit their children are not perfect, those with honor and honesty and good intentions know very well our Law Enforcement Officers rank right up there with our Military and our Fire department employees when it comes to heroes, appreciate you and your fellow officers. It may not seem as such but, you are and so are your fellow comrades. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. So very sorry that there was such a tragedy for you, putting your life out there so many of us can feel safer. You more than make up for it with your paying forward on this website!

Much appreciation and I will share with those who knew Louie your kindness!
God Bless you also!

I would like to know if you served with or knew our Louie? He was a class ahead of me in High School. No one seems to have a Military photo of him and I would like to see one. We all adored him while in school. After his graduation, I lost contact. I have visited his grave, your photo is beautiful, mine was crooked. I thank you for creating a Memorial to and for him so his classmate can visit him, whenever they wish.

God Bless and I am not sure you served but am guessing you have so, THANK YOU!
