Bio and Links
Bio Photo With much of my immediate family growing in and around the Washington D.C area for generations, I was never overly curious about family history. After a friend who was more interested than I found photos of relatives gravesites in other states who were born during the time of Andrew Jackson I was amazed. Even a marker for my grandmother's unnamed infant son which I had seen in home movies had been photographed by someone.
I am most familiar with Arlington Cemetery, Oak Hill and Cedar Hill Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue. I have taken many photos for my own enjoyment and for friends over the years, but realize others are often not so near.

Find A Grave Memorial# 110609119
Eliza's baptism says she is born Dec 30 1849.
She is only on the 1850 census with her parents.

Then the interment book states there were no entries from 1850 until 1858. And I did not see her from 1858-60.

Thanks.

RE: Hunter
The other thing Jane & William's oldest son was born Oct 7 1838 and baptized on the 9th at Holy Trinity yet Jane was not baptized until 7/4/1839 the exact date she and William were married in the Catholic Church which leads me to believe her parents were not of the Catholic Faith and William or someone convinced her she should join his faith.

RE: Hunter
I looked at the group photo you placed today with the Mary Virginia Brown Headstone which appears to say she passed in Feb of 1871 but oddly enough she is not in the Sacramental Registry for 1871, According to the Sacramental Register that contains the marriage of Jane Brown & William Hunter her parents are Avender Brown & Jane Brown ( these registers give the mothers maiden name ) so it would appear they may have been cousins.

RE: O'Brien/Murray
Nice work.
Wanted to tell you about Mary Burroughs O'Brien,
wife to Richard. Since you linked him to his parents, I thought you might be interested in linking her with at least her mom.
Her mother, also Mary Burroughs, is buried at Congressional Cemetery under the monument of the women killed in the 1864 DC Arsenal explosion.
Mary Burroughs (mom) was born in 1817 to William B. and Sarah Russell. In 1849 Mary Russell marries Philip H. Burroughs. In 1858 Philip was shot, and later died from the wound, leaving Mary a widow.
He is buried At St. Andrews in St. Mary's county where they lived.
She moves to DC and eventually gets a job at the Arsenal. When she is killed it left young Mary, who they called Molly, an orphan.
She is put in St. Vincent's orphanage and later goes to live with some Russell cousins. Then in 1883 marries Richard.

RE: O'Brien/Murray
I will let you go ahead and enter them if you don't mind.
I still would like to meet you some time and help you if I can. I also have some cousins in the general area and a nephew in DC that maybe could help.
As I mentioned my son and his family live in Glover Park, maybe we could enlist some neighbors.

RE: O'Brien/Murray
How did you ever get that upright. It would have
been extremely heavy.
Thank you so much.
I live in Crofton, MD and my son and family live there in Glover park. I would be happy to meet you there sometime and help you do whatever.
Have you ever contacted Georgetown to get them to do something?
I think this cleanup should be organized and not fall on just one or two people.
Congressional Cemetery has done it. It was in great disrepair and has come back to looking great with lot of volunteers.
PLEASE contact me and I will come over. I am retired so I could come on your schedule.
I have the list of who is there in the site (got it from Georgetown U.) will hunt it up and send.
