Bio and Links
Bio Photo During my life, I have visited cemeteries and have been interested in the very early gravestones. While researching a close family member, I found this site and became "hooked" on recording information and photographs for my ancestors.

Please feel free to contact me with updates by using the EDIT tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. FINDAGRAVE has rules, so please read the guidelines.

If you wish to use one of my photos, please contact me for permission.

Even though it is allowed, I respectfully request that no Death Certificates or census records, etc. be uploaded into the photo sections of the memorials that I manage. I would very much prefer that a family photo or headstone be occupying that photo space to represent their life. It is much more appropriate for this website.

It is my pleasure to transfer memorials that are not part of my family as long as it meets the Findagrave guidelines. Out of guidelines transfers are made on a case by case basis.

Memorials that are not my family have been created from Maryland books that I own or from cemeteries that I visited.

The purpose of this site is to record a burial.
There are many other sites for unproven genealogy to be recorded!

RE: Archibald Grimes
Unfortunately Margaret I had no other information to go on other than what the City of Englewood had in their burial records. This information is word for word from the records. I wish you good luck in your search. If you click on Archibald Grimes's Find A Grave record for Fairview Cemetery you will see that it lists his parents names and then click on those names and I believe it shows his grandparents names.

RE: Elizabeth
Good morning Margaret,

The man was correct except that William actually donated the land and wood for the church and the old cemetery. He actually gave the land to the church much earlier but then the bishop requested that it formally be transferred to the church. I have a copy of the land deed. I think that was in 1855. It was carried out by his son, William John Owen. William John is not buried at St. Ignatius.

My grandparents graves have flat markers. It is hard to see them until you are right up on them and if the caretaker hasn't trimmed around them, you could miss them. If you are facing the newer cemetery from the church, they would be located on the right side, towards the woods, so they are further back, not along the road. I have photos taken 3 years ago, when my brother and I made a sibling trip back up to MD.

I have a Find a Grave membership, so I guess I could enter them in myself. Is there anyway that you could contact the man who told you about the name Betty? I would like to have him get in touch with me. William is our furthest back ancestor that I know of and I am interested in getting another generation or two back.

Also Richard and Ann Welch's gravesite that is on the old cemetery side has a large upright stone, rather large. They are the grandparents of our Mary Cecila Welch. Many of the Lloyds, Bowie, Mattingly families are related to the Owen family.

Elizabeth "Betty" Owen
My name is Mary Owen Boston. My great great grandfather was William Owen, who is buried at St. Ignatius Church in Hilltop, MD. You have a memorial for him and his wife Elizabeth. I believe that she is his second wife, a step mother to William's son, William John Owen. I do not know who William John's mother was. Anyway, I would like to know where you found the information that Elizabeth was called "Betty", as you have in her memorial. I am not questioning you, I am just curious what records you may have found that might lead me to more information on the family.

From records my family had, I have William Owen as being born in 1810 and that he died in 1865.

My grandfather, John William Owen and grandmother Mary Cecilla Welch Owen are also buried in the newer part of the cemetery, across from the church.

Thank you for any help with the Owen family history.

Margaret - Thanks for the new lead for Thomas and George(s) Stamp. I will follow up to see what I can find. As for Mary Magruder having a different maiden name and marrying a Magruder, good point! Another lead to follow. I will get the obits I have for the Magruder Family to you.

RE: Magruder
Yes, they ended up in Virginia. Where Hezekiah Thurman married Ann Nancy Magruder (or Nancy Ann). Then my line follows the Thurmans.

Location of cemetery
Hi Margarget: I am married to the great great grandson of Francis and Mary Crandell, Gordon Augustus husbands grandfather was the oldest child of John William, Francis' son Gordon, and some reason Gordon changed the spelling of the last name, the only one to do so as fare as I can figure. It was sort of in my quest to sort out why that I came upon Find A Grave, and the loads of information you posted! Well done! Are you related to us?
I was wondering if you know the location of the Tracy's Landing property where the Crandell Family Cemetery is located; one of the great grandchildren, John William Crandell and I were hoping to find it and perhaps secure owner permission to photograph the graves. All of John William and Lida's children have passed away, and their grandchildren aren't aware of property in Tracy's Landing.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
