Bio and Links
I became interested in Mount Auburn Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland, because four of my husband's family members (Keaser) are buried there. The conditions were (and still are) absolutely horrible when we first tried to find the graves in 2007. During our searches for the graves of our family members, I began transcribing some of the headstones, hoping that someday someone else would be luckier than we were. So much of black history is simply lost! We actually cleaned the graves of four unrelated individuals after our search for our family remained fruitless. I keep hoping that Mount Auburn will be restored. Hope springs eternal, right?

My husband's family hails from Warren County, North Carolina, and I'm trying to find as many family members as I can. Of particular interest is Burchette Chapel, Manson, Warren, North Carolina, as a host of his ancestors is buried there.

RE: Henry G.T. Esch
Hi Kristin and glad you find it helpful. I am not related to the family but happen to be working on making Evergreen cemetery as complete as possible with pictures and obituaries.

RE: Damon Shivers
His father's grave was little further in. That has a picture on it too. I thought I had posted it, but I guess I didn't have a still. I will try to get it up on the site soon. (I think that area is overgrown now. Perhaps I pull a still from the film.)

I hope the cemetery will be restored and that Damon's resting place with get the respect it deserves.

RE: Clarence Downs, Sr.; Mt. Auburn Cemetery
I think I photographed that grave around 2007. Probably right after you cleaned it. I don't know about it's current condition. Some areas of the cemetery were relatively clean two months ago, but, after the rains, it is a jungle again. I was last at the cemetery two weeks ago.

I am working on a feature length documentary about the cemetery the plans various people have to restore it. We have finished shooting and now we are in post production. Here is a little temporary trailer we threw together.
