Bio and Links
Bio Photo With much of my immediate family growing in and around the Washington D.C area for generations, I was never overly curious about family history. After a friend who was more interested than I found photos of relatives gravesites in other states who were born during the time of Andrew Jackson I was amazed. Even a marker for my grandmother's unnamed infant son which I had seen in home movies had been photographed by someone.
I am most familiar with DC area's, Holy Rood, Arlington Cemetery, Oak Hill and Cedar Hill Cemetery on Pennsylvania Avenue. I have taken many photos for my own enjoyment and for friends over the years, but realize others are often not so near.

Note also, feel free adding a photo to any of my memorials, as different time of day, light and opportunity may aid in clarity and appreciation to a loved one or researcher. The older photos on this site do not allow you to zoom in, plus digital cameras are much improved since the early 2000's.

Mary S. Dawson #176603019
What joy I feel from your contributions because Mary was a sister of my Great great grandfather Robert Joseph Dawson. Mary was incarcerated in a mental institution and Robert (174230594) had that twinkle in his eye! I will be editing (adding) my known relatives to Mary and her mother, Susanna, and brother William. I have been searching for info on Susanna's husband, William G. Dawson, Sr. and appreciate your comment that so far you have not found him buried at Holy Rood. I myself am from DC and went to Little Flower Elementary School, graduating in 1965 with a Mary Walsh and her non identical twin sister (forgot name). Oh should I have had this passion when I lived in Bethesda and waited for the DC transit bus on Wisconsin Ave near Tenley Circle! I never knew Holy Rood was there! Thanks for your sharing.

Wow - thanks so much for the speedy response. I had not even looked for a Jameson marriage. So should I go with Lilly V. Jameson Pierce? Any luck with middle name? Thanks again!

Mary Ann McKewen
Hello Randy,
I've been researching Peter McKewen (Ireland) and his wife Ann for a long time. I find them in the 1850 Philadelphia, PA census with 9 of their children, including my 3rd Great Grandmother. I can follow Peter to California and until he dies. I'm attempting to find him before he comes to the United States. Now, maybe I can find them through Ann. I know he's widowed before he moves to CA. I'm hoping this Mary Ann McKewen might be my Ann. Hoping you can help me.

Stunning find! Helps fill in a big gap and establishes a Galway link to both Keady and Tierney families! Very much appreciated!

RE: James McGuire [DC]
You are welcome! I found the information randomly, while searching for something else, and then found your memorial, or I never would have known where he was buried. Teamwork. :-) Alice
