Bio and Links
Bio Photo My paternal family names are Stephens, Carter, Daniel, Stovall, O'Neill, Caraway, Talley and Jones (mostly TX, GA and TN).

My maternal names are Frisino and Genovese (immigrants from Italy 1880s), Drane and Barry (immigrants from Ireland/England 1840s-1890s). The Frisino and Drane families settled in the Baltimore, MD area.

I am also researching Jewish families White and Ruttenberg (immigrants from Russia/Poland 1870s-1900). These families settled mostly in New York and Chicago. Strauss (Latvia to England); Roland and Gicht (Poland to England). These families settled mostly in France and England.

I want to thank Find A Grave and all the friends I have met here who have found family members for me across the country. Without you I would probably never have found the information I now have for my children and future generations.

RE: Larry Drane
Yes.... he was. It is hard to believe that he is gone. He was a rare find. Such a wealth of knowledge and fact to back it up! I will let you know what I find out.

RE: Larry Drane
Hi Barb. I have been wondering the same thing. Let me talk to Fransico about it. I have been going to but wanted Fransico to have his time. Maybe that time is now? Nice to meet another relative. Larry was amazing. I loved him a lot. He was so kind and genuine. Not like some of the crazies that crawl out when you meet family! He was a real honest decent person. Just amazing. I miss him!

RE: Charlotte Drane 136843741
I'm going by their on-line database at How is she listed? When I search on last name "Drane", there are only 3 entries.

Van Wert
Do you have any connections to the Van Wert family? I saw you had created Bryan K Van Wert's memorial.

RE: Annie Drane 133476108
I am not sure what happened that both Annie and Thomas died so close together. If you have copies of the Death Certificates it might say. I did Google the Sherman Place address but the street no longer exists. There was the great fire in Baltimore back in the early 1900's but I believe it was around 1904, not 1914. That is not to say that a fire of the residence didn't happen. Also, I noticed that most of the census records listed her as a grocer as did the directories during that time; all at the same address of Sherman Place. I am curious and would love for you to update me if you find out. In the meantime, I am working on visiting the MSA in Annapolis in the near future and will see if I can view Thomas's death certificate which may offer up a few more clues.
