Bio and Links
I grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where a lot of my family emigrated about and before the 1850's. Most of my family ranged from Mass. to N Carolina, then moved onto Ohio after the Revolutionary War, and finally they moved onto MO and Iowa.
I also am working on my husband's family which is mostly in Washington county and Baltimore, Maryland.
I am mainly interested in making sure that family graves have the correct and complete facts and also connecting family members.

RE: Adams at Boonsboro cemetery
I was able to gather a lot of info regarding Boonsboro Cemetery from a lady on my friends list. If you contact her, she may be much more of a wealth of info for your Maryland ancestors. Her name is Lisha Bikle and I believe that she can be helpful.I think that she could also point you to others in that area that may have knowledge of the Maryland area.
Glad to be a help to others.

RE: Adams at Boonsboro cemetery
I made the Boonsboro transfers you requested. I saw on you member page you had been searching for others in your family. If you check out the following website you may find the death certificates and other info. ( I have used it to locate several peoples burial places I has been searching for.
I have also found some of the old cemetery books people use are VERY inaccurate. Good luck in your searches.

RE: Thomas M Youtz
I was thinking that Old Norbourne Cemetery and St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery might be on opposite sides of the street. One is 200 and the other is 201. So I am not sure why Isabelle's death certificate says she is buried in Old Norbourne Cemetery, yet someone on the internet says they saw her gravemarker in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery.

Why would Thomas and Margaret bury their son in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery if no one else in the family was buried there at that time (1900)? Although there was at least another of their children who died before 1900, Thomas C./E. Youtz (20/23 Feb 1891 - 25 Mar 1892).

RE: Thomas M Youtz
I just saw that the Catherine Youtz (1865-1915) buried in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery is actually Catherine (Youtz) Roach, daughter of James and Isabelle.

RE: Thomas M Youtz
I don't know where the graves are located in the cemeteries. I used a book, "Cemeteries of Martinsburg and Berkeley County, West Virginia", and the LDS website. Thomas and Margaret are in the book, but Isabelle is not. I found Isabelle's death certificate and saw the cemetery she was buried in. I couldn't find a death certificate for James Youtz, but I found a DAR record with his dates of birth and death on it.

Old Norbourne Cemetery, 201 West South Street, Martinsburg. This cemetery is also called Nortourne Parish Cemetery.

St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery, 200 West South Street, Martinsburg.

I saw on the internet where some people say that Isabelle is buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery instead of Old Norbourne.

I just checked the book and there is a Catherine Yontz (8 Sept 1865 - 13 May 1915) and Thomas Yontz (died 11 July 1900, at 4 months) buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery. Thomas is actually Thomas William Youtz Thomas William Youtz (14 Mar 1900 - 12 July 1900), son of Thomas and Margaret. Maybe the two cemeteries run into each other. If so, possibly you should start where they meet to look for graves.

If you need the addresses of any more cemeteries in the area, let me know. They are in the book.

RE: Thomas M Youtz
I found out that Thomas' mother is buried in the same cemetery as Thomas, so I added her to Find A Grave.

I had the wrong death date for Thomas' wife, Margaret, so I fixed that.

RE: Jacob M Adams death date
Thanks for calling that to my attention. I had it in my records but failed to change it on Find A Grave. C

RE: Susan E Cline
I have checked my material, information taken from the Washington County, Cemetery Records, Volume 3, page 34. The Cline information at Christ Christ Reformed Church, in Cavetown is correct.

I take it the Cline's in Sharpsburg are different Cline's and someone has duplicated the memorial. The person that created the first memorial is the correct memorial owner.

Thank you,
