Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm from Delaware and I'm currently researching my genealogy. I've been using FindAGrave.com since 1998 to find ancestors, and thank you to all the people who lovingly share of their time and energy to enter all these records and post photos...if it weren't for you, I wouldn't know where my family was buried.

Currently, I'm only adding burial records for direct ancestors. I don't mind administrating memorials of my relatives so I may ask you for a transfer, although it's not expected and you're under no obligation to do so.

I have several headstone photos that I need to gather and upload from years prior. If you create a memorial and I happen to have that photo, I'll upload it for you.

Most of my research focus is on Sussex County, DE; Wicomico, Dorchester, Caroline and Somerset Counties, MD; Accomac, VA; I'm trying to locate the burial locations of several relatives at the moment. Can you help?

If you have any personal or candid photos of my relatives, please add them - I'd love to see them!

Dr. William W. Stuart
Dr. Stuart and Mary Ann Sorder were my great-grandparents. Dr. Stuart was in what would become the Union Army and stationed in Washington DC in 1859. He and Mary were separated, as he was a Northern sympathizer and she was a Southern sympathizer. He died of a disease contracted from his patients, and is buried in the Washington Congressional Cemetery, 1801 E. Street Southeast, Washington DC. He is interred on site 84 range 86 and is next to Commodore Payne of the US Navy. I have the original letter written by James Stuart to Mary's attorney describing the funeral and the fact that "she requested me not to send him back". Mary Ann Stuart then spent the next few years supporting Confederate troops in various Civil War prison camps, of which I several other original documents.

John Brasure ( G or L )
I have found an 1850 US census for a John E Brasure (1831- ?) in Sussex County, Delaware. Father is either Benton or Burton Brasure.

However, the only gravesite I can locate for John E is that of my great Uncle John, my grandfather's brother, siblings of William M Brasure.

I lived in Delaware until 1973 when I moved away for college and never returned. Have resided since in Virginia, but try to get back to Delaware a couple of times a year.

Is this John Brasure, husband of Mary, mother to William, part of your family as well?

Mitchell & Louisa Adkins
Checked in Volume 5 of "Tombstones of Sussex County" and in the Red Men's Cemetery in Dagsboro, DE, there is no listing for either Mitchell or Louisa Adkins.

RE: Wainwright in SOF
BTW- Since all George's death certificate says is that he was buried in "Seaford, DE" he may have been buried on a family farm. It says that burial was done by Watson's Funeral Home...I'm not sure if they still have records or not? If I get up to the state archives building I can look and see if I can find an obit. They should have papers from 1934.

HI there~I am so glad that you would like the transfer~~she was originally added by a fallen graver and I was given her to keep by findagrave until a relative had requested her. I noticed that you are trying out a new method to clean stones. When it is cold outside, if you take a soft rag, the lichen (green/yellowish)mold will just wipe off as a dust. It goes dormant when its cold and the roots release from the stone, ie it is able to just wipe off easily as dust. I would however cover my nose as the dust gets in the air and if you have allergies it will irate.
Enjoy Mrs.Draper, she is on the way~~~~~~~~hugs
