|William Cuff||RE: Myrtle Evans Harrison|
I was reviewing my messages and am not sure if I ever replied to this one where you asked for documentation. I am not sure what edit suggestion I made, but let me clarify what I have. Myrtle was born in Ohio. Five out of six censuses show this; the sixth one says Indiana. She married Mr. Harrison on Jan. 30, 1894, in Madison County, Indiana, according to their marriage record.
|Cheryl Hanson||Mary Evernham|
I received your note regarding Mary Evernham. The Evernham's are family. I don't have a lot of info on Mary Jane Jester Evernham. The info I do have came from Earle Evernham and this is his direct line. I think she was his Grandmother or Great Grandmother. She is Mary Jane Jester but I don't have her parents. She was born in Cambridge City, Dorchester Co, Maryland. Benjamin & Mary Jane were married on 28 Mar 1881, in Cambridge City, Dorchester Co, Maryland. They had five children, the first four born in Maryland and the last in New Jersey.
Hope this helps you some,
You're quite welcome. I missed it when i took the other Elfrey/Conley photos because the inscription was facing the wrong direction so I thought that stone belonged to another plot. Oddly, someone else created a memorial with photo for Philip Elfrey some time ago, but didn't do one for Annie.
Also at that location are George W. Elfrey (1871-1937) and Sarah E. Conley (1849-1928) if you want to create memorials for them.

Do you want photos of the plot (without their markers) loaded for the Conley pages at Druid Ridge?

I don't know anything about him. I am administrator for IdaF's memorials as she is no longer active. If you want a transfer...let me know.

Contacted findagrave and their response:
It looks like by the maps on the two cemetery listings that they are individual and distinct separate entities, so it would be in error to merge the listings.

|CHerr||duplicate cemetery issue|
when I get a chance, there are many more than fridingers that are duplicates. I may have to contact findagrave at some time in the near future to combine the cemeterie memorials than maybe they will remove the later for the earlier memorials..
I was just adding mine to the first monkton cemetery for the names on the monuments I took photos of and never saw the other cemetery.
I have just looked at my file of photos I took that day. The camera files go from 5510 to 5516 for all of the Fridingers. So they were all in the same or adjacent lots.

|CHerr||we may have duplicate cemeteries|
When I took photos of the monuments at Monkton Church cemetery I looked on findagrave for the folks and found the cemetery where I added then my photos and if necessary the memorials. I added mine to the Monkton site that was there So my photos for fridinger are on his lot.
Not until your email does it seem that the cemetery is also there under another name.
So that the cause for the confusions.

By law you can get access to family cemeteries that are on private property usually by asking permission and it is granted by the owner. They cannot deny family access. While the Pleasant Grove Cemetery is not on private ground and is fully accessible it is surrounded by private homes, including the old church which is a private home. There is no parking lot, just a driveway. The cemetery is fully fenced. It is administered by the Sandymount United Methodist Church to my knowledge.
|Russ Hudson||RE: CCGS question, maybe|
The Sandymount United Methodist Church and the Sandymount Pleasant Grove Cemetery are almost directly across the street from each other. The pictures are current and accurate on Find-A-Grave. Their history is intertwined in that Pleasant Grove broke away and then later rejoined. Pleasant Grove is less than an acre in size and is pretty well documented. There are very few new burials here. The church is a private residence today.
I think there is some confusion with Pleasant Grove in Baltimore County, as Carroll County was not founded until 1837, so in older histories it may state Baltimore County. The churches were also on the same circuit in the late 1700's and 1800's and joined together to fund a parsonage for the circuit preacher along with other local Methodist churches. Hope this helps a bit...
