Bio Photo I am an adoptee whose journey to locate my biological family lead me to Penn Yan, New York. With the assistance of fellow Find a Grave volunteers, I successfully uncovered my roots! Now I am dedicated to helping others fulfill their quests for the truth while continuing to search for my own. I pledge to do all I can to help others while treating everyone (both the living and those who have passed before us) with dignity and respect. If I can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

RE: Thomas Wells
Hi Jan.
I'm pretty sure that Thomas is buried in the St. Thomas Episcopal Church Cemetery, but I don't have anything factual to base it on. From what you told me, I know that he isn't buried in the St. Thomas Cemetery in Milford. His son Richard Wells is buried in Owning Mills, along with brothers-in-law Edmund Howard and William Gist. One problem that I've seen from other Find-A-Grave notes from that cemetery is that many of the old headstones are no longer legible.
If you decide to check the cemetery out, I'd love to hear what you find.
Thanks so much.

RE: Thomas Wells
Thanks for the additional info. In doing some checking, I'm beginning to think that the information on his memorial is incorrect. His son is buried in St. Thomas Episcopal Church Cemetery in Owings Mills; I'm trying to find out if Thomas is also in that cemetery, not the St. Thomas Cemetery in Milford.
Again, thanks for all your help.

Thomas Wells
Hi Jan. Thanks so much for trying to find a marker for Thomas Wells. Its always sad to come across a cemetery that's been allowed to deteriorate. I appreciate all you do to help all of us searching for ancestors.

Thank you!
Wow oh wow! Thank you so very much! I took a shot in the dark asking someone to photograph this headstone, I didn't think anyone would. I live in long island, NY. If I can reciprocate the favor, please let me know!

Thank you again for this wonderful present!

Charles F. Pickett

No, sorry, not the same person. The Charles F. Pickett I am looking for was married first to Margaret C. Groyton and second to Anna E. Duvall. He had no children by his first wife but eight by his second wife.

Thanks for looking. Carroll County is certainly full of Picketts!

Anna Pickett

Anna Pickett's husband was Charles F. Pickett. He died in Montgomery County, MD in 1900 so I suspect that he may be buried there somewhere. I haven't checked land records over there yet to know where they may have owned property and where he might be buried.
