RE: Charles DeVall
I have checked the copy of the lot book and in the original cemetery in Lot 74 there are suppose to be 4 infants or small children buried. There is a Maudie Devall, Chettie Devall and a Lester Devall along with an infant . It looks like that was the one fore Chettie so we were both half right.I deleted the one for Charles since that was incorrect.
Is that Maudie or Mandie. The obit says Mandie. If it is Mandie and it is quite possible this is an N instead of a U, the name can be changed to be correct.

The next time I go Back I will see if Maudie's stone is still there. I find I have already taken pictures of all three of those stones at one time. There is none for the infant. I imagine it was either stillborn or died at birth. In most cases there isn't a stone put up for them but it is buried in the same lot as the other three.
When I am getting photos for someone else I try to take all the ones that I run across that are either broken and down on the ground or getting illegible so they will be there for the next generations.

I think this may be another one of the children that died the same time as Lester. His stone is right next to Lesters

I have added Maddux and McNutt info in the Haskew Cemetery and linked them to the DeVall's.
Checking on Laura DeVall parents, I have found a marriage license for her father under pmcbrasil family tree on Ancestry that listed the date of death for his first wife as Feb 9, 1894. This needs to checked before adding Betsey to Laura post.
Let me know what you find out.

Nope--not related. I have about 26,000 memorials and I am not related to most of them. Most of my relatives are managed by other Find A Grave volunteers.

These are my great-great grandparents through my father's mother. My grandmother, Bessie Hotchkiss was a Gillaspy and her mother was Linnie DeVall Gillaspy. I am still working on the children of the DeVall's. All are buried in the Burlingame Cemetery.

Patrick O'Rorke note
Sharon, As I am a fellow civil war fan, I appreciate all the notes that you and others have left behind. I have just recently started doing so as well.

One note about your note on Patrick O'Rorke's memorial...I'm sure you were standing on top of Little Round Top, vice Little Big Horn, when you gazed upon the valley of death. This caught my eye, as I've studied the heck out of Custer's Last Stand.

While on the subject of O'Rorke (a hero of Gettysburg, in my eye), do you know about the nose on his memorial? Rubbing his nose is supposed to bring good lick; the nose on his face is shiny from the many people who have rubbed it over the years.

Lastly, next time you're in Gettysburg, stop at the Applician (sp?) brewery, next to the Lee's hq house...they have super mac n cheese, with a mound of crispy bacon piled on top.

Keep the notes acoming !!!!! ~ Tom Fonner

RE: Dixie Lee Swift
I looked at the local funeral home to see what they had in their record. They have Dixie listed as an infant, but no further info. I also checked the paper to see if there was an obit, but found nothing. I would guess that you are looking for an older person, but you could try contacting the funeral home to see if they have any further info.

RE: Request for transfers
Hi Sharon,
I've transferred the two Williams memorials to you. What is your line of descent from this couple? I've followed their line pretty completely down four or five generations, so I'm interested in where you fit in.

Please go to the memorial you wish to have transferred and use the edit button on each memorial to request a transfer. We do not do transfers from messages left on our page as it does not give us links to what we need to do the transfer properly. Also please tell how you are related to the person when requesting a transfer. Thank you and God Bless.

Hi Sharon,
I want to thank you for stopping by Charlie's page - I just noticed it at 4 in the morning because I am not online as much as I'd like right now (dr. stuff, seems endless!)...I only found that he and I were distantly related after alot of hard work and phone calls, it broke my heart to find that yet another military member who died for his country and people had pretty much been forgotten. It really is nice to see complete strangers taking the time to visit, and leave such thoughtful words. I'll keep your page in mind, and as soon as I get a chance - is there some way to turn twenty four hour days into forty eight hour ones? ha! -, you'll see my name around, returning the kindnes.. Take Care, Best - RCP and Gannon Blue

Hi, Sharon,

I've been adding Bunker Hill participants that I have found and photographed. I know Dr. Warren is buried at Forest Hills and is, of course, a famous listing.

RE: Cause of Death of Col. Howard Carroll
He died on September 29th. Thanks for the update. I'm still looking for the source of the photo I added. I usually put it in the caption, but for some reason did not on Carroll's page. I'm trying to retrace my steps to find the source again.

Dear Sharon
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for the kind words and the Irish Harp you left on my father's site. You are so, very thoughtful.
I have been thinking about you, today on your dad's birthday.I have to tell you, it's not easy. My dad has been gone almost 10 years, and I too miss him so very much. He was such a wonderful man,he adored his 6 children, and 13 grandchildren. My family would say, dads doesn't want to leave you, (Eileen), and ya know they were right. But till the very end of his life, dad was fighting to stay on this earth. My wonderful son Doug, is a Funeral Directo and took care of his grandpa, Doug is an amazing man, we were all so proud, and forever greatful.I am a nurse, for over 30 yrs. and took care of dad for years. I greived for years, I can't tell you the pain that I was in.I was a mess. If you new me, I was always, the pillar of strengh for everyone. I can only say, "With the Grace of God", I got through it. I know my father is out of his pain and truly is resting in peace. Sometimes I feel him, close by, cheering me on. He would always say, how strong I was. I have so many memories, I cherish in my heart, and think how blessed to have had Bernie to be my father.
I don't mean to ramble on, but I'll tell you little bit about Bernie, he was born in Ireland, the youngest of 12 children, his dear mother died in childbirth, and his dad died 2 years later,they say from a broken heart. His sisters & brothers raised him. They grew older and left home, one by one. At age 8 yrs. old, dad was told by his eldest brother, he had to find some place else to live, as his brother was getting married and didn't want dad living with left, walk 50 miles, to an Aunts house, and she took him was very difficult, but he made the best of it. As far back as I cam remember, dad would always say,"It could be worst", I find myself thinking, or saying those same words. Dad never talked about his childhood untill maybe 3 years before he died. I was shocked, my mother didn't know any details either. Just an amazing story, he wasn't bitter, or angry. I was, I call up his brother in Ireland and gave him a piece of my mind, Uncle John was 18 yrs. older then dad, it didn't do much good, it made me feel better. LOL, his brother said, "Why did you wait so long to call. I told him, dad just only told us, about his childhood. And Uncles John just cried, and said he was sorry. Uncles John the eldest, died one week after his baby brother, my dad Bernie...Isn't that something.. Thank you Sharon for listening..I am always here for you if you ever want to talk..I know your dad, is very close by, watching over, and missing and loving you...He was Blessed to have a wonderful daughter as you are, to have been blessed having a dad like him...Take good care, With Love, Eileen
