~OUR FAMILIES ANCESTRAL ROOTS~


Married December 6, 1870 in Frederick County, Maryland.

She and her husband had a total of eight children.

Neither her or her husband had a stone or could be found. If it wasn't for me finding her obituary I would have never known she was even buried in Marvin Chapel Church Yard.

We visited the cemetery to find that there was no stone for either her or her husband but there was an open area towards the church and I felt they were probably there.

We then called the care-taker of the cemetery and he said he did not know, as the records were far apart and very few. So he contacted an individual that said they remembered her being buried there along with her husband many years ago.

John David had purchased 4 plots total, and he and her were in the first two.

They are not positive, but it has been said that their is a homeless lady that was also buried in one of the remaining plots many years later.

And it is still not clear whether there is another person buried in the final plot, or is it still vacant?

In 2001 our family placed their gravestone we purchased for them both into the cemetery. It may be long over due, by about 70 years, but their presence will now be known for other generations.
