Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started with findagrave in order to record the locations of as many of the graves of my relatives as possible. I'm also trying to link them together as I find new ones.

My Dad's family came mainly from the Washington, D.C. area from the Civil War on. Before that, McGraths from Ireland via Philadelphia; Tobins, Rileys, Clarks, and Breens from Ireland to D.C.

Mom's family dwelt for many generations in north central Maryland - Frederick and Carroll Counties mostly. Moores, Boones, Eylers, Gosnells, Fogles, Locks, Garbers, and many more.

My feeling is that it is best for a memorial to be managed by as close a relative as possible. I will usually be willing to transfer a memorial to you if you are a significantly closer relative than I am to the person memorialized, especially if you have more or better information than I do, or are willing to write a good bio.

I have better things to do than throw a fit if you want to download one of my pictures and put it on Ancestry or whatever, but I would enjoy getting a credit or a thank-you message. I also like to hear from my cousins out there, especially on my Dad's side.

I've done some genetic genealogy testing, and found that the McGrath Y haplogroup is R-M222, which is the one that's been traced to Niall of the nine hostages, an Irish hell raiser from the fifth century.

RE: Bopp and others
Hi Pat,
I've taken care of all your requests except I did not have a photo of Ruth Frazier's marker. I could look again but I feel certain I photographed all the graves in the lot with those names.
Enjoy your Sunday!

RE: Bopp and others
OK thanks. If you create memorials for any of the others and put out a request for a photo I'll be happy to post them. If you prefer, I could also send you the pictures now so you can see what we're working with. Just let me know.

Bopp and others
Hi Pat,
I was at Glenwood cemetery here in Washington this morning. I photographed the grave marker of Mae Bopp and her husband; I will be posting the photo shortly. Also, in the same lot I took pictures of seven more grave stones with the surnames you mentioned, mostly Frazier. I'd be happy to post any of them in response to requests made here, but I'm wondering if you already know who's buried there.

Thank you for the offer of the transfer. I would appreciate that. Caroline is the sister of my 2nd great grandmother Emily Jane Alexander Dayhoff.

RE: Ellen T. Tobin at Holy Rood
Actually I did scrub it down last fall. Shortly afterwards some groundskeepers cut back a lot of the overgrowth around them also which was nice.
A few weeks ago I did add a nice photo that includes the infant with parents Patrick & Ellen's markers behind.

RE: Ann McGrath
WOW! That's a good find! I wonder how many other McGrath's are buried there. Have you tried calling the cemetery to find out?
