|I have always loved history, and when I began researching my family tree, I learned to love history even more. I am glad that my husband and children enjoy walking in cemeteries and hunting down headstones with me. I grew up believing that my family had been in the U.S. for only a few generations, but as I found documents, I was thrilled to find out they have been here back into the 1600's. I enjoy sharing what info I have found and collaborating with fellow researches.|

Will check and see if Saint Peter & Paul is open. They usually close and lock the gates in winter.
|John Michael||Fort MYER has no cemetery on Post|
Your request for a photo of Elsa Aurelia Fischer Knorr (May 5, 1895 - Sep. 22, 1962) grave.
PLEASE CHECK THE OBITUARY ... it even says
ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY as her resting place.
I would suggest either deleting the record or changing the cemetery and re-requesting...
Thank you in advance,
Author of the book
"Images of America - Fort Myer"
|Laine ||RE: Leander Chester Smith|
It's a beautiful cemetery. You go down a driveway, and it's before a house. Apparently they mow now and then. I can't explain the three graves showing Leander Chester Smith, and we propped up the small grave to the right of his "main" grave. It was unreadable, but there is another daughter there who's name isn't on the list of the cemetery records that I could quickly find. So I couldn't include a pic as she isn't listed.
It was difficult to read but,
It looks like Mary L. Dimmick, 2nd dau. of Nathan Smith, born March 11, 1807, died May 13, 1878.
Happy ancestral hunting:)
