Thanks, I never came across anything that gave me an idea of what he was revered for. Look forward to seeing, of what you referred.

Admiral Charles Plunkett died 1931
Included in his grave info, at Arlington, is his daughter Julia Plunkett, first wife of William Henry Barber.

Could you please tell me the source of the date date of Julia (Mrs Henry Whitney Barber). )

WHITNEY was a wonderful man, married to my aunt Margaret Nix.

I do have info regarding the marriage of Julia to William Henry Barber, for the New York Times.

I was told that Julia, perhaps died in Mexico, no date. I would be most grateful to find more on Julia. Whitney gave me a lovely bracelet that had belonged to his first wife. I wore the bracelet at my wedding.

Many thanks Peggy Berry Sutherlin

RE: Re: John E. Low and Emma Heiberger
I have one more for you. I have enough information now to be confident that Find A Grave Memorial# 7214298 Amelia E Dafter is Capt John Edward Low's sister, mentioned in his obituary. I've been attempting to track down their parents, but it seems this will not be easy, if even possible. In the 1850 census they are shown with a family named Wheelock in Milwaukee at ages 12 and 9. They apparently are already orphaned by this time. As you may know, the censuses before 1850 contain very little useful information, so unless another family Bible or other supplementary source turns up, it looks like we will be at a dead end on this one.

RE: John E Low & Emma V Heiberger
Good morning!

I have been working this family a bit more this morning because I am still trying to find out where Belle might be buried - no luck on that, but I have concluded that Memorial# 112859693 Jane Baker is Emma's mother. The 1850 Norfolk, VA and 1870 Washington, DC census show Jane Baker b approx 1803 living with the Heibergers. If you go to the Congressional Cemetery website and click on search and put in Emma Heiberger and then put in Jane Baker, you will see that it puts them in the same plot and Jane's birthdate is 1804.

Hilda Saum
Hello HWA. I had lunch with Hilda (Comer) Saum's son yesterday and he was unsure about the place of his mother's birth. The source of the DC birth place that sent to you as an edit, came from the 1930 census of the District of Columbia. Her parents were both born in Virginia, Page County, Luray. This info was taken from documents online at

W. Warder
Have you heard from W. Warder lately? I can't see where she has been on for over 4 months now. She was taking photos while I was inputting data. Please let me know, as I am more than concerned about her.
