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.

Michael, what a wonderful thing for you to do. I'm truly impressed with the new photos and love the one with the canon. Thank you so very much. On the computer I enlarged the one with all the headstones and can still read his marker. Marvelous!!!
|connie jansen||re: John Potter at Holy Rood Cemetery|
Hi Michael, I know there is a discrepancy on the stone. The question is which is incorrect, his birth date or his age. My Potter relatives made a number of errors on tombstones. I have been to Georgetown University library to research the Holy Trinity records, however they don't mention his age. His obituary says he was 71. For the time being, I'm going to leave the dates as they are on the stone. I have a suspicion that the age of 70 is what is incorrect.
Thanks for noticing though.

Outstanding! Good way to display both of them also...I'm glad you were able to located him. I hadn't been able to get back there so this worked out well. For the record Minnie & Adolf ran their own business but she kept a share in her late fathers trade which her brother dissolved in 1927.

Michael, thank you so very much for the photo of Mary's grave. She is my GGG Grandmother and I truly appreciate the time, effort and money it took for you to do this.

Thank you for going out to take those four O'Donnell gravestone photos at Mount Olivet Cemetery. And thank you for sharing them on findagrave. Much appreciated!

Michael, what a great photo and so quickly! Thank you so much as we will probably never make it back there in person.

Thank you for the photo of the site listed above. It is a beauty!
A question for you......it looks like there is also a Scherer site to the left of this one, but it's much smaller and hard to see with all the grass and leaves in the way. Is it possible to get a photo of this site too, please?
Thank you for your help and quick responses. We appreciate you so much.
