Thomas N. Smith
He is indeed my great, great grandfather.
He and Mary had at least 5 boys:
William Eugene (1864 - 1935)
Joseph Francis (Frank) (1867 - ?)
Walter Henry (who later took the middle name
of Joseph, I believe, in honor of dead brother
Frank) (1869 - 1955)
George Washington (1872 - 1933)
Clarence (1875 - ?)

My great grandfather was Walter.
One of his sons he named Walter Henry
who was my grandfather.
If Tempest could contact me at I can provide more
details, census reports etc.

The oldest Smith family photo I have is of
Walter and his son Walter. I'd love to see
a photo of Thomas if one exists.

I will set up a page for Walter and add that

You seem to have quite a bit of info on Sgt Smith.
I have his complete Civil War records, and BELIEVE
he may be my great great grandfather.
Do you have any more info on him?
I know he was a carpenter and lived in West Baltimore.
Thanks, Rick Smith

I'm specifically looking for his obituary.

RE: Taylor graves at Baltimore Cemetery
Thank you for all your work it is very thorough. I came across them looking for someone else and noticed they weren't photographed. When I was going through my pictures and matching them up I noticed your unmarked note and was wondering why they were stated as unmarked. But now I completely understand and in the future I am going to double check my own memorials if I receive such information I would have also assumed the cemetery records were correct.

Also I don't mind you checking your research to approve my SAC and I don't know if this helps but one of your memorials for the Taylor family actually has the obit which states them as the parents which greatly helped me as Catharine Taylor's marker was barely legible and I could only make out the first 4 letters of her name. Also any info you may find on them I would be happy to add.

Thanks for all you do Have a great day!

RE: 163080776
Thank you! See, I believe that Ed and Kate had four sons including a set of twins and didn't make it out of infancy or toddler hood. Of course one of the twins was named Edward C. after Ed and died.

I know that my grandma Katherine named my dad after Ed because he was her father figure. But now I have to wonder if she didn't have another motive, such as replacing his name sake. Maybe not, just because he died and she loved him and her first son was born the year Ed died.

Thanks so much for the help!

I was just wondering where you found information Howard Taylor. Well,for that matter all the Taylor's related to Baby Howard.

I'm trying to document my Grandmothers family and don't want to go over the same area again.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

RE: Response to your email regarding memorial 19406857
Thank you for your curt reply. Now I remember talking with you on the phone and at that time,we seemed to have a nice conversation. But now your tone in this matter is not what I deserve and I don't care how many times you've "been through it before" with me.

Are you related to the Horns?

My sources come from the Horn family bible, cemetery internment permits, and from the Maryland Historical Soc'y references, from my great grandmother not mentioning Elizabeth in her history to the family (and that would have been duly noted because her mother was Regina Reppert Horn, Ben's first wife). Further researchers were my uncle and aunt from the Horn line.

I have looked at at the 1850, 1860 and 1880 census and found no Elizabeth Horn except one who was age 40 in 1870 and she lived in a different ward. What census are you specifically referring to?

The only other Elizabeth Horn documented is Ben's niece = Elizabeth Charlotte Horn, b. April 12, 1821, who married Robert Whitelock on Dec. 31, 1844.

Some of the impossibilities this Elizabeth you have downloaded into our family can be explained. But YOU have to bear the burden of proof. I would be convinced to see from you a burial permit, AND a birth / death certificate saying she is a legitimate heir of Ben and Regina.

Otherwise some answers:
1. Ben Horn sometimes used his nieces as temporary servants until they got married.
2. He could have had Elizabeth out of wedlock. What do her records show? Have you looked them up?
3. Many times the census taker would assume names, even last names, or not hear them correctly.
4. This Elizabeth could have been his niece visiting for awhile and was caught up with the census.
5. The cemetery could have buried the wrong Horn person to this family lot.
6. The Horns, etc. were Methodists and German Lutherans. I seriously doubt that one of theirs would have married into a Jewish line.

Like I said, YOU need to convince our family and not assume this link without proof.
