Richard S. Mickle
Henrietta Schmerler
I am attempting to do what others have tried and been unable to complete. A biography of Ms. Schmerler and the events that led up to July 19, 1931. How such a young person could change so much in so little time needs to see the light of day. Most have perished who knew of Henrietta yet I hold out hope there is someone out there who is the link to history. Thank you for your work.

Charles M. Irelan 119967873
The Wash DC Evening Star (Oct. 25, 1934) states that Charles M. Irelan (retired chief clerk of the Patent Office) was buried that day at Western Cemetery, Baltimore, not Oak Hill Cemetery, Georgetown, DC (his wife and 1 daughter are buried there). Do you have other info? Thank you for your help--much appreciated.

Rev. Lowell russell Ditzen
HWA, Thank you for the writeup and photo of Lowell, who married us in 1961. I kept in contact with him until his passing in 1987, He was born Feb. 16, 1913 He married Virginia Stuart with whome he had 4 children. Adrienne 1942-1950. Paul Stuart Ditzen, 1937-1953. Lowell Stuart Ditzen , 1937 - . Deborah Chiarino 1953 - .

Lowell's gravesite is in Rock Creek Cemetery in D.C. Is there any way to obtain a photo of his headstone Section R11, Lot 244 ? Since I live in Austin, Tx, it's a far bit away for just a photo. I also have corresponded with Lowell's great-nephew with whom I will share it.

Do you know the source and date of the picture of Lowell that you posted?

I am happy to share what I have with anyone who would like to do the same.
