The day I stop searching for my Ancestors will be the day someone starts searching for me.|
May God let me live long enough to leave a very, very large trail for them to find.
I want to give special thanks to "My Dear Friend", Liz for helping me put down the bread crumbs for my family to follow and to Jim for bringing life back to my old family photos.

Photos are not the best but better than nothing.

|Joel Shore||RE: Mary|
Yeah...You're right. But I wouldn't put too much stock in the age given in the interment records as there often will be at least a small discrepancy with what's on the stone. I'm just happy when it's close!
|Joel Shore||RE: Mary/Maria Geiwitz|
I believe it is 15 März 1871 (i.e., March in German).
|Joel Shore||RE: Requests for Geiwitz at Mt Hope...|
Good news...In an unexpected surprise, there was actually a marker for one of the Geiwitz's (Mary/Maria) at the gravesite.
|Joel Shore||Requests for Geiwitz at Mt Hope...|
I have been researching your Geiwitz requests at Mt Hope and I have bad news: There are almost certainly no surviving markers for any of them. This is definitely true for the one in the Public Grounds, as the area where these burials were is no longer there...and by all indications for the others buried in a single grave in M. (I'll try to go out and get a picture of the location of their burial.)
However, there are some more recent family by that name buried elsewhere at Mt Hope. You can find them in these surveys of surviving gravestones:
|Ron Keith||RE: Smith|
you are welcome
|Gale Olsson McHale||RE: Glasow|
Glad they work for you. You're more than welcome!
|Jeff Lovelace||RE: Lovelace|
Your kindness precedes you dear lady! Bless you and have a joyous week!
|RainbowGal||/Renny Belew-Second Creek Cemetery|
There still is not marker for Renny Belew.
|Bronx Aquarian||RE: Leonard Stewart|
There were no Stewart stones anywhere in the vicinity. I know this because Woodlawn chooses not to label ranges in Lot A so one has to work from a aerial photo and then work the entire surrounding area. We checked ten rows in either direction to be certain.
