I'm currently in the process of adding memorials and photos of cemeteries on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I only create memorials when I have a picture of the stone to go with it. Some stones are badly weather worn and hard to read. If anyone comes across information that is not correct, let me know and I will correct it.|
After 5 years James R. Boteler has been located.

Wanda, Thank you SO much for taking the time to locate and document the grave of Doyle M. Hurst. He was killed in the flood waters following the failure of the St. Francis Dam in Southern California, as his grave marker mentions. It's a wonderful photo, and your efforts are very much appreciated. Take care, Ann

|DelawareNative||THANK YOU For Memorial Transfers!|
Thank you very much for the creation and transfers of the Cannon memorials!!
|Frank Patnaude||Spring Hill|
Have you completed all of Spring Hill Cemetery with photos. It is an amazing task. My cousin recorded over 10,000 photos in Spring Hill. I have been working on them and was putting them up on MD grave stones. I quit with 3500 entries.

Thank you Wanda - appreciate your creation, maintenance and transfer of Abram and Annie Cannon's memorials :)
Since you live in Talbot County, perhaps you have heard of my aunt -- her name is R. Bernice Leonard. She was deeply immersed in the genealogy of Talbot County and its families and has produced over ninety works. She died in 2006.

You're right -- there were graves moved to Spring Hill and Mt. Olivet mostly. But there are some farms, that were owned by families of old that now have other owners, that still have original burial grounds on the property. Since they are privately owned access is sometimes difficult. The removals of graves were noted for the Spring Hill cemetery, as well as for other cemeteries. I've hesitated to add cemeteries onto F-A-G in case the ones noted in my aunts books have a different name today. I've researched them to make sure before I entered them. I've also looked for the names of people just in case there have been graves moved since my aunt wrote her books. I'm entering the names hesitantly because of this. So please don't hesitate to let me know if you come across any that I've entered that you know are in a different cemetery, because I'm expecting that some will have to be changed. Also, I can update the records for the books at the Archives. Thanks so much!
That's true about some graves being moved to Spring Hill, as well as others, but I checked the names out before I created the Ratcliffe cemetery. My aunt wrote a book about our Bartlett family and she mentions where certain people are buried. If graves were moved she also notes that and where they were moved to. She worked with a core group on the Talbot County cemetery listings that are in the Maryland Archives (including Spring Hill) - they compiled these books through a combination of resources - church/cemetery records, by going to each cemetery and noting each headstone, talking personally to the landowners where burial grounds are, and talking personally to family members and obtaining Bible records. However, even with all of that, I enter information realizing that there still may be mistakes, so if you ever see a memorial/cemetery that needs to be fixed in some way please don't hesitate to let me know because I can also correct it in the Maryland Archives information. Thanks!
