Bio and Links
Bio Photo A few years ago I discovered my Carroll Co. Md roots which are in addition to my German, New York, Eastern Shore of Md and Baltimore roots. I am in the process of adding to findagrave from some books from the Carroll Co. Historical Society. Thank you to those of you who are going behind me and adding pictures. I am willing to help anyone on their own quest if I can. My main names of interest are Baumer, Becker, Boose, Seiler, Schweizer, Wentz, Jones, Leonard. Genealogy is always a work in progress and I hope my work help others with their search. I also attribute the time I give to any genealogy project a tribute to those named. Everyone deserves to be remembered in some way. I am retired and living in Jarrettsville Md and I am also working on local cemeteries in the Harford County-Baltimore County area. I am glad to hear from anyone with comments or corrections and if you want to hear back from me include your email address in your message. Also, if you want a bio added to someone, I will be glad to transfer them to you so you can do so-please provide your transfer #. If you would like me to link someone please include the memorial numbers in your request so I can make sure I am dealing with the correct people.

Ms. Jones, we have chatted before and I wanted to thank you for documenting the Marker of my Great Grandfather, Harry J. Gamble. I have been wanting to find this marker for some time and it is very challenging since I live in Kentucky. Thought I would share with you, My grandfather owned a substantial Dairy Farm located in Phoenix, Maryland and for some unknown reason took his life in the family Dairy barn. I used to visit and play at this farm, when I was a child and as soon as I find a photo of it, plan to attach it to this memorial as the farm also no longer exists.

Hi, You put the original photo on this memorial # 60402186 , but there are no dates. Do you have a photo that can be zoomed to determine dates?
Thanks so much!

RE: Ida M Burton

Good Afternoon. I am planning a trip next year to Baltimore. One of my many stops is going to be to the Maryland State Archives. I will be pulling her death certificate, so hopefully that has some information that could be useful. Given that by the time she married my 2nd Great Grandfather, he was her 3rd marriage.

Ida M Burton
Hi Donna! I hope this finds you doing well. I wanted to let you know something that I am not sure if you were aware of. Ida M Burton, was married before. I know that she was married to my 2nd Great Grandfather Clifford P Burton. I am still working to discover Ida's maiden name. According to the 1910 Census my 2nd Great Grandfather was her 3rd marriage. Not sure what number Thomas Dolan was.

I just recently discovered the death information for my 2nd Great Grandfather, and I will be creating a page for him shortly. I must confess though, that I most likely won't have Ida's maiden name until next year when I make a trip up to Maryland. But then again, I have so many death certificates to pull. I have enough death certificates to pull to keep me busy for at least 2 days in the Maryland State Archives.

Ida M Burton is buried in Kriders Lutheran Church Cemetery, in Westminster, Carroll County Maryland. Her Memorial #52445344.

Is she a relation of yours? While she never had children with my 2nd Great Grandfather, she did help raise the younger ones he had left when my 2nd Great Grandmother passed away. I will keep you posted if I am able to find out Ida's maiden name before next year.

Ruth Ann Yingling
Hi, I just stumbled across this Memorial for Ruth Ann Yingling. You need to know that the mother's maiden name is incorrect. Whoever posted the that her mother's maiden name was Mryers is wrong. The mother's maiden name is Royer. Her name is Charlotte Ruth Royer. Her parents were a man named David Smelser Royer and her mom was a woman named Mary Eleanor. I don't know Mary's maiden name because on the marriage information between David Grant Yingling Jr and Charlotte Ruth it says the mother's last name is Royer instead of using the mother's maiden name. I just thought you'd like to know so that you can correct your information.
