Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy since I was 15. Collected a lot of old bibles and pics when I was young from the older generations which worked out good, because they would have been thrown out when they died. I love FAG and have found many ancestors on here and met a lot of people on here. Willing to help anybody who has ancestors in Maryland.

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim : yes, by the way, the office has moved to another bldg. I found this out abt. a month ago myself. I'm retired and therefore free during the work week. I have found it best to go to a cemetery office during the work week in mid morning or early afternoon. Never at lunch time, nor too early or too late.
Most cemetery offices are not open on the weekends.
So, I never go to an office on a weekend.
I entered the death notice for Richard, Jr. You will find it in his memorial. I overlooked your message yesterday.
The nicest folks I've found are at New Cathedral Cemetery. They have a computer database right in the office as well as the old log books.
Aha, so I may have gotten the Section O info from you. Well, you'll find those folks eventually so it'll be corrected.
Oh, the reason for the shift in the office at Loudon is because it is also a funeral home. I think they just wanted to separate the two aspects of the cemetery.
I carry jugs of water, a brush & a big sponge in my trunk for cleaning markers. Absolutely NO detergent of any kind. Sometimes a mirror will help throw light just is the right way to help read inscriptions.
Find A Grave has a Facebook page. Some cleaning info pops up on there as well as some interesting stories.
OK, I'm starting to ramble,
Ciao for now,
John

RE: Swindell edits
Hi Kim:
Looks like I entered Section 'O' so they are probably there somewhere. The office will give you a map and an idea as to where the lot is. I say "an idea" because Loudon Park sometimes is not too friendly or helpful. Ask for the name on the first grave in their row and/or names near by. That info will help a lot.
I clicked on the photo and saw that I had entered it in May of 2013 so it would have been cooler then. I usually only go on dry & cool days & even in winter when it's not too cold.
Many of the tombstones I've taken photos of have been near ancestors of mine & so while there I have just randomly chosen a few to photo.
I walk with a cane nowadays so don't do very much wandering around. I only wander a bit while researching some ancestor.
Tell your cousins to definitely join. I'll be happy to transfer the memorials to them.
Why not go back to that overturned tombstone & look at it again. Take a jug of water & a soft bristle brush ... nothing abrasive ... and see if you can clean it some. Then take several photos from different angles. Read in FAQ what NOT to do when cleaning a stone. (maybe you already have & if so I apologize for playing teacher) I'm fascinated by those overturned ones.
Thanks for the update,
John

Kim: I hope you enjoy your time with your relatives. Perhaps they'll surprise you with some interesting info. If you ever want the memorials transferred, just let me know.

Hi Kim,
Thanks for the Swindell edits. Are these folks in your tree? Would you like me to transfer them to you?

RE: Dorothea Bollinger
Hi Kim, you are certainly welcome. That is why I originally tried to transcribe the entire cemetery. It was my gift back to genealogy and I got a gift back by finding many cousins also doing genealogy. Best wishes and let me know if you need others. Jane

Kim,
Thanks for the photo of the stone. It is appreciated. So many of the memorial I make are of people I find while researching someone else. It might be nice to go back in a few months when the ground has settled and the grass grown and replace the picture
Your help is appreciated.
Robert
