Do you know anything about this Cora S. Risley as to whom she was married to or anything about her family.

She is listed as a sister in a 1940 census and that family was from Evan Risley and Evan and his wife had no child Cora. I believe a mistake was made by and the census the name should have read Charles S. Risley born 1871.

The worse part is Cora and Charles are buried in the same cemetery. I would like to find out What family this Cora was from.

Thanks Myrna

R. Ashby Cromwell # 51540105
I have a question about R. Ashby Cromwell, 1861-1873. You have him as the son of Randolph Smith Cromwell and Elizabeth Benson (Stewart) Cromwell. I'm wondering if he might be instead the son of a different Randolph S. Cromwell and Henrietta (Phelps) Cromwell. They lived and died in Anne Arundel County. I found the following obituary at

"CROMWELL, Randolph Ashby on 6/24/1873 son of Randolph and Henrietta CROMWELL of A.A. Co. MD. Death was caused by being kicked by a mule."

There are so many Cromwells with similar and shared names living in the Baltimore area around the same time! It's very confusing.

RE: refusal
I had added an extra comment in the refusal edit.

Adella Blanche Reynolds is in my line, so I have tried to sort out the Johnson / Johnston usage.

I get the Johnson from her marriage record to Wilson S Johnson (which can be found on I also have the burial plot record from Union Dale Cemetery, which lists both Wilson and Adella as Johnson.

I am aware that their death certificates say Johnston but I don't feel that this is correct. Adella signed her brother's death certificate as the informant (John M Reynolds, July 26 1918, also on as Mrs W S Johnson and as this is (to me) an original signature unlike the death certificate for Wilson S Johnson where her 'signature' appears to be someone else's transcription (the entire certificate in the same handwriting), I feel confident that Johnson is the correct surname.

RE: O'Donnell @St. Mary's
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly on this. My sister is doing our ancestry...she wondered if the "Dykes" were related. I'll pass the message on to her.

I believe this may be my great, great grandmother on my mother's side. Do you have the section/lot/plot numbers where she is buried? I'd like to visit next time I'm in the area. If not, is this a small cemetery where she'll be easy to find? Her memorial number is 134064676, if that helps. Thank you so much!
