Bio and Links
I started working on genealogy with my father quite a few years ago. After he moved away from the area, other interests took over. In the last year, I have rekindled that interest and FindAGrave is a natural extension.

Cemeteries near me that I frequent are US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home Cemetery, Washington DC, St. Mary's, Washington DC, and Crownsville Veterans Cemetery, Crownsville, MD. There are others fairly close but they are huge and without some direction to search, I tend to stick to the ones I can maneuver.

I am trying to get access to the columbarium at the Washington National Cathedral. One of the volunteers said he has only seen it opened one time in his 18 years there so I am only hoping at this point.

Please delete the site from Find A Grave. He is my brother and some of what you have written in his bio is incorrect. As a family we have put together his true Grave/Bio information. We do appreciate the work that went into it. However, the truth is yours is incorrect.

Edward Schmidt
Thank you so much for your time and effort into maintaining your various online grave sites/records. It's such a big help and so important to those of us who can't readily get to the cemetery.

This Edward Schmidt is my 3rd great grandfather who was born in Kippenheim, Germany on December 24, 1810. I don't know if you'd like to add additional information onto his site, but here's what I know.

He was the son of Johann Georg Schmidt and Marie Magdalena Friedrich. He married Maria Helena Oberle and they immigrated to Baltimore. Edward enlisted and was in Co K, 29th New York Vol. Infantry. He fought in the 2nd Battle of Bull Run and was buried at the U.S. Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery, DC.

I have research documents, if needed, for proof.

Thanks again and Happy New Year,

Evelyn Franklin's photo
Hello Russ, thanks so much for the photo of Evelyn's monument. A friend of mine is researching her family. Her father was a famous and successful blind salvage diver. He did salvage jobs many sighted divers failed at.
Thanks again,
Dan Phelan

Russell Johnson @ Crownsville
I got his information from the VA National Cemetery Administration. Should I submit a photo request? Do you have access to Crownsville logs?
