Dusty Papers, I am the volunteer history researcher for Egmont Key State Park. This place was once a coastal fort called Fort Dade (1900-1921), and Col. William F. Stewart, Jr. (1876-1933) was the first commanding officer. Would you be interested in exchanging information?

Hello Fellow Findagraver!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention (Sideways pictures) I have corrected his and his wife's photos. This always seems to happen when I take photos in graveyards wi'th my iphone and add them at the same time. Its weird because they are the right way when I add them but when you actually go to the website they are sideways for some reason.

thanks for that obvious typo correction. wonder how the system even accepted it. any relation to the family? BJ

I understand on the "area". I though you might have the photo since you knew where she was. I'll have to try and remember to check back to see when the person changes the cemetery to the correct one so I can resubmit a request. Thanks for the info.

I'm not the memorials keeper but I did forward your information to them. Hopefully they correct the info to the proper cemetery.
Can you still upload a photo of her stone ??

esther and Josephine stewart
I just saw a note on Esther's page that Josephine is in an unmarked grave next to her (there is an empty plot, and it would explain why I couldn't find her marker)

Hi, I just finished a lengthy search in wet grass on a beautiful foggy morning for Josephine and Helen Stewart. Alas, this area of the cemetery is laid out like a snail and hard to find plots. I finally had to give up. That said, I did find Joseph and Esther Stewart, Alice, Jefferson and Olive Stewart in the event you should want pictures of any of those...?

RE: #19330270 Horace Yewell
You are welcome. I know the 2007 Interment list says it way laying down, and the cemetery consists of sand and weeds. It's possible it is there but has been covered over. Also there was a terrible wind storm a few years ago, and close to a dozen old big trees came down out there, that might have affected it as well.

Thank you. They don't send you an email. I have read in other members messages that in 21 days findagrave processes the edits that are idle.
Happy New Year! Carol

RE: Martin & Florence McDevitt
This will be quite lengthy. I am willing to also just use email if you would like.
Lilly, Louisa & Florence were all born at Holly Hall. I never heard about Annie.
We lived in Md about 40 miles from Holly Hall & although we heard about it we never visited.
Grace McDevitt Andrews(1916-1999) is actually my mother in-law. She was a grandchild of Martin & Florence McDevitt. Their last son Edward Pinkney McDevitt was her father. Grace only had 2 sons & I was the daughter she never had. I was the listener to all her stories etc. & if I could tell you the number of times my husband has said to me...."I didn't know that !" I'd be in Hawaii on vacation.
Grace's father & his mother Florence had a "falling out" about something (Grace never knew what) & that left many many stories & family connections broken.
I do know from Grace as well as ancestry-etc.,that Holly Hall was "lost" to James Sewell due to mismanagement of money---he owed quite a lot of money in debts. James family came from England & his grandfather & uncles were exceptional at fighting the British & actually stopped (9 ships)the invasion up the Chesapeake. Elkton is outside of Baltimore & the Chesapeake comes right into Balt.Harbour. Annie was quite wealthy from her own family & as there were major money problems they decided to relocate & they chose Fortress Monroe, Hampton,VA to make a new home. The area they chose was called Old Point Comfort. Annie purchased 121 acres of land and TODAY that property is actually the Norfork Naval Base. There is a area there that is called Sewell's Point that was established by James' grandfather Henry. It seems that the girls were small when they relocated. This is how the 3 of them met & married their spouses in VA. Florence met Martin, as he was a the Wisconsin Army, stationed at Fortress Monroe. He was 11-12 yrs. older than she. Martin was appointed Treasurer of Hampton,VA after the Civil War & after that in the early part of the 1880's-1885, they moved to Washington,DC. Martin had wealth as well & they lived in a 22 room mansion in DC. Grace's father Edward, told of being driven to school in a horse drawn carriage & indeed Florence lived as the wealthy woman she was born & brought up as. As time passed (throughout the time they lived in VA) by Annie would sell off parcels/like a acre ea. of land to keep money flowing into the family. After the girls all married & Florence was lived in DC, James had died in I think 1882 & Annie passed in 1884. Annie left what was left of the property at Old Point Comfort....(which they named their home Melrose or Bayview) to a baby by the last name of Cassels and Lilly (Leila) Stewart. I am assuming this baby was Annie Cassels child. I have a book that has the VA Court of Appeals case recorded & Florence & Louisa took Lilly to court to declare that the remaining property should not be solely hers. It's incredible to me cause I can hear those women speaking (!) & their husbands were there also. At that time I understood that Lilly's husband was deceased.
So, I started researching in March of this yr. just to see if Grace's stories were accurate and yep, pretty much they were. I've learned alot and of course would love to know more. I also have worked with Vita Chek and DC Vital Stat. to find Martin's death record as well as Glenwood Cemetery on Lincoln Rd.,DC But...still no luck.
Any advice is great.
Thank you, Tina

RE: Martin & Florence McDevitt
THANK YOU ! I would love to see any photos of any of the McDevitt's. We moved to VA from MD & DC is where Martin moved his family from Fortress Monroe, Hampton, VA in the 1880's. The family, all except Edward are buried in Glenwood Cem. very close to where they lived. I have a copy of Florence's death well as family stories from grandparents. I can not find a death notice, obituary or certificate on Martin. This is confusing to me as he was a Major in the Civil War, applied for 4 different pattens (2 were issued-that I could find), he was the County Treasurer of Hampton, VA after the Civil War, helped establish (complete) the railroad....among other business interest in DC. Why there isn't a record of his death surprises me.
Any information you have I am grateful for.

Resurrection Cemetery
On a side note, I believe that the other photo requests for this cemetery are actually listed in the wrong "resurrection". Will need to do some further digging! -caroline

Thank you for getting the photos of Edward and Thomas Barry from the resurrection cemetery. My mother (Margaret Juran) is actually in resurrection as well, but I live out in montana. I grew up in woodland/deephaven. If you can get there again I'd appreciate a photo for James Ryan. Thanks again, I appreciate your time. -caroline
