Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired high school history teacher, having taught in the public schools of St. Mary's County, Maryland. I am a native of Huntington, Suffolk County, New York.

I have been interested in visiting old cemeteries since I was a child, when cemetery visiting was a family activity.

I began a project during the American Revolution Bicentennial to update the cemetery lists held by the St. Mary's County Historical Society, Leonardtown, MD. This project, using high school students, extended into the early 1980s. Some cemetery lists were published in the "Maryland-Delaware Genealogist."

I worked with the GenExchange Project adding cemetery data from both Long Island, New York, and Calvert and St. Mary's counties in Southern Maryland. I have also worked with the site.

I was editor of the "Generator," the quarterly publication of the St. Mary's County Genealogical Society from 1994 to 2014, except for one year. I also served as 2nd Vice President of that organization.

Currently, I'm a member of the Sgt. James H. Harris Camp #38, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. We are now in a project to identify & mark graves of the known Union soldiers in St. Mary's & Calvert counties.

Selah B. Howell SR
Hi David,

Please disregard my previous message.

Apparently there were two Selah B. Howells. They are father and son. Apparently your memorial #25752696 for a Selah H. Howell in Cedar Hill is the father, Selah B. Howell SR. He is the husband of Olivann (Wicks) #25752742. Could you please connect the two of them and add their son, Selah B. Howell JR. who is buried out in Lake Grave, New Village Cemetery # 6382565.

I am referencing A Genealogy of the family of Richard Howell by Thomas H. Donnelly

RE: Oliver Brown ?
Dear Sir,

If you would not mind transferring him to me, I would appreciate it as I am in the process of building profiles for each of these members of the Brown and Finch Families of North Castle/Greenwich which are my ancestors. Thank you.

Dear David:

Thanks for your note -- you're more than welcome!

Hope to see you at an upcoming genealogical meeting -- if I can ever get there ... seems something's always in the way.

Best regards,

RE: Sarah Tucker Lore
Thank you David, certainly hope someone will come upon her mother's grave at some point, likely somewhere nearby, record and add it to Find a Grave, so we can link it.

Locating a grave
Would you know how I can find Plot 69? I have the architect's drawings of the stone corners with chains, etc. but no map of the cemetery plot locations. Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.
