Hello I was wondering if you could transfer these memorials over to me. They are brother and sister. Thank you so much.

Pending edits for Alexander family
Hi Birdman,
I have lots of edits pending with you mostly for the Alexander family. If you would rather transfer them instead, I would be happy to manage them as they are generational cousins to me.
Thanks,
AnnT

July 17, 1914.--- 35-FOOT FALL FROM A CHERRY TREE FATAL
Sad Fate of Cecil, 14-Year-Old Son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Marker, In Locust Valley.
DIED FROM RARE DISEASE.
"Gas Bacillus" Entered the Wound When Broken Bones Came Through the Arm and Ran Into the Ground---Arm Amputated at Shoulder in Baltimore Hospital, But to No Avail.

Another sad and distressing fatality occurred last Saturday when Cecil, the 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Marker, residing in Locust Valley, at the foot of South Mountain, [near Burkittsville], fell 35 feet from the top of a pear tree and was so terribly injured that he died following the removal of his arm at the Maryland University hospital, Baltimore, shortly before midnight Tuesday night.
The young man climbed the tree, unknown to his parents, and began to shake the pears off. In doing so he lost his balance and fell to the ground. He was picked up by his father and brother, William, who carried him to the house and Dr. A. A. Lamar was summoned.
The arm was broken in two places between the elbow and wrist and the bones came through and ran into the ground. Dr. Lamar realized that the injury was serious and fearing lockjaw, took every precaution.
On Monday there developed a rare and fatal infection, known to the medical profession as "gas bacillus," a germ that comes from the ground and infects wounds. This bacillus was encountered when the broken bones, protruding through the skin, ran into the ground. The arm began swelling up like a balloon and Dr. Lamar at once realized the hopelessness of the case. Arrangement were made at once to take the unfortunate youth to the Maryland University hospital in Baltimore. At 9 o'clock Monday night the start was made in an automobile from the Model Garage, Mr. S. Leslie Shafer at the wheel. Dr. Lamar and the young man's father and brother, William, accompanied the lad. The trip was made in safety, the hospital being reached shortly after midnight.
The case was only the third of the kind ever seen at the hospital and while the surgeons did not believe there was any hope, the lad's arm was amputated at the shoulder. He stood the operation well, but at 6 o'clock Tuesday evening he suffered a sinking spell and death came shortly before midnight.
In such a condition was the body of the unfortunate lad that it had to be placed in a hermetically sealed casket. It was shipped to Boonsboro in charge of Undertaker Wm. Bast, arriving there at 9 o'clock Wednesday night. It was taken to the home of the lad's grandparents, Rev. and Mrs. A. W. Philhour, and on Thursday morning was brought to the home of his parents. Here brief services will be held this (Friday) morning, at 9 o'clock, by Rev. H. W. Zuse, of the U. B. Church, Myersville, after which the body will be conveyed to the U. B. Church at Boonsboro, where funeral services [and interment] will be held.
Misfortune has been hovering over the Marker family for over a year past, and Mrs. Marker, a daughter and one son are just now about over a long spell of sickness due to fresh paint at their home poisoning them over a year ago. For a long while all of them were unable to walk, being paralyzed. The son is not yet fully recovered, but is able to walk about. Mr. Marker and family have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. [BRUNS CITZ 17JUL2014]

Thank you SO MUCH for taking and posting those pictures of Eliza and Annie Davis from the Bakersville cemetery! I live in the West and am in college so it would be very difficult for me to go there and take the pictures myself. Thank you again for the time that you spent to go and find those graves and get the beautiful pictures!!

I have a photo that I took 17 Sep 2012 of the marker for Lafayette F Alderman, Antietam. I would like place it on the memorial that you created for him, if I may.

David Gladwell
Hedges Chapel Cemetery
Birdman, thanks for all those plots you recently put in for the Hedges Chapel Cemetery. I am the Treasurer for both the Chapel and the Cemetery and I am working on updating the records for the Cemetery. Would you consider transferring all your Hedges Chapel memorials to me? It would make my work a lot easier, and would be less on you.

Hi, I just want to tell you how much it has touched my heart to see the note with the puppy photo you left on my daughter's memorial (captioned above). She would have loved it as she was a great pet lover. She especially loved dogs and once she learned how to drive she would see a dog running loose and stop, pick it up, and bring it home! She worried it was lost and lonely. I would have to tell her to take it back to the neighborhood she found it as it would find its way home; which she would do after feeding and petting it first :) Memories are all we have now.
THANK YOU and Blessings to you,
Martie

Condra Crabtree
Tivis Rhoton of Scott Co., VA
Hello, my name is Condra Sue (Susie) Crabtree. My mother is Rebecca Ellen Rhoten Crabtree. Her father was Tivis D. Rhoten b. 5/4/1880, Claiborne Co., TN, died 11/4/1958 at Lee General Hospital, Pennington Gap, VA. Tivis is buried in Pattonsville, VA. I will be posting a photo of his grave soon. Tivis had a sister, Laura J. RHOTON, born MAY 1885 in Scott Co., VA. Married 26 MAR 1904 in Scott Co., VA, to Isaac Floyd RHOTON (born AUG 1879 in Scott Co., VA), her first cousin. If I am right and have followed the lineage correctly, we are related through Tivis and Laura. My mother is still living and talks about writing letters to Laura after she and my Dad married in 1958. She told me that Tivis went to Baltimore with Laura and Isaac to find work (road work?). Tivis came back to Scott County and married (2nd marriage) my grandmother, Lillie A. Ramey Rhoten Litton 12/23/1915 d. 4/14/2008. I would love to contact my relatives in MD. If we are related, I would love to hear from you. My email is ladyaug@yahoo.com . I plan on talking to my mother and writing down all the stories she remembers about Tivis and his family. There may not be a lot because Tivis was approximately 35 years older than my grandmother. There were two older sister from Tivis' first marriage and I am looking for their children also. My mother may have photos of Tivis and Laura and I plan on organizing those. Would love to share and exchange if possible. Again, if I am right and we are related in any way, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for photographing the Bentz for me. It means so much to have the photograph of their gravestones. I don't have any pictures of them personally, so it's nice to have some link to them.

RE: Benjamin Reed Boyd - 126159700
Hi Ken,

Damon has now deleted all of his entries, his bio, and his messages. He is down to the 9 people who were transferred to him. I think he had added about 858 people. One of the people he stole pictures from contacted a friend at Find a Grave who issued a warning. Then the entries started disappearing.
