RE: info on Eastons in Oak Hill

All of the birth/death information for unmarked burials came that I posted came from the two volume set of books titled "Oak Hill Cemetery Georgetown, DC Monument Inscriptions and Burial Data" by Wesley E Pippenger. Mr. Pippenger worked with the previous superintendent of the cemetery, Ella Pozell, to document all of the burials. I did not double check his work but I'm told by the current superintendent that Mr. Pippenger did a remarkable job. {Most of the information published in Mr. Pippenger's book, including birth and death dates, is posted on Oak Hill Cemetery's web site

RE: never mind
I could not see the photo either, and tried to reload it and received an error from the website. I will try again later to upload a photo.

I have tried a couple times to locate Anna Slaake's headstone, but I cannot find it. Would you like at least a photo of where it should be?

Hi Bernie, I linked Linwood Paul Dahlke to his parents Albert Dahlke & Nora Judge. I was happy to see Nora full name so was able to add it to my page. I am working on the O'Mahony side of the family. Regards, Catherine

Hi Bernie. I thought I would just go ahead and transfer Elner, Eleanor and Catherine (Judge) Hall over to you since they are related to you. I see that you have Robert Hall and his wife Dorothy (Bakken) Hall in. Can you connect Robert Hall to his wife Dorothy (Bakken) Hall and also to his parents (Elner & Catherine (Judge) Hall). Thanks Bernie.
