I started researching my family tree in 1995 and have really enjoyed it. Some of the names in my tree are: Austin, Savin, VanHorn, Biddle, Lane, Golt, Davison, Howell, Marvil, Wroten, McDowell, Schiff and Dearth. Most are from the DE and MD areas.
I have found a wonderful website that has helped me with a lot of useful information for my family tree, www.familysearch.org you can access old birth, marriage, and death records as well as census records.
If I have listed someone that is a direct family member I am more than happy to transfer the memorial to you. Please request the transfer under the edit tab. My only exception to this is if they are my family too.
I will gladly add information provided.
Any pictures I have posted of head stones you are free to copy and use BUT I DO NOT give you permission to make money off of them.
Horace McCabe Jr 148784359 Hi Aunt Aim - I just wanted to thank you for adding Mr. McCabe today to Roxana Cemetery in Roxana DE. I do not know this gentleman. He passed away yesterday and the funeral home did not have him set up for a military funeral, which is happening today. My Grandson is in the Seaford Delaware Young Marines and last night his Commander received a heart wrenching call from one of Mr. McCabe's grandchildren, in tears, asking for her help. They had originally contacted the VFW/American Legion (I am not sure which one it was) and even though he was a member they could not help because he was not a member of their lodge. They may have guidelines to go by, I really don't know. However, this Young Marine Commander, in a seemingly effortless manor in less than 24 hours had found a bugler and is was able to have this gentleman receive a 21 gun salute in honor of his military service. She and her Unit is also attending his funeral. My grandson will be folding the flag and will be presenting it to Mr. McCabes spouse. I really was appalled and upset as to how this veteran was treated but I thank GOD and the Young Marines that is all worked out in the end. Take care - Cindy
I am related to the Savin by way of Aleatha Ann Knight 1833-1893 daughter of my 3rd. great grandfather James WashingtonKnight and Sapora Cosden. Aleatha married Benedict Savin. I see you have put some Savin's into Findagrave for Townsend Cemetery. My question is I see a Barbara L. (Lee Savin 1960-2000) but do not see who her husbnad was. It states her children Jimmy Savin, and Sean and Jennifer Arno, and her parents Lester C. Savin and Molly Louise Walls. My only conclusion is was her son Jimmy Savin born out of wedlock due to the fact her father was a Savin?. I would appreciater your kind help with my question. I don't know where in the lineage she belongs as well as her father what information can you provide on him? Thank you for your kind help. Fondly, Thelma Knight Maiorano Newark, Delaware

Brown family in Hollywood Cemetery Hi! I just wanted to let you know, the Brown's graves are not marked. I talked to the caretaker and he located the Brown's plot in his book. They are in section G, lot 82 and he showed me where they were. He was so helpful! He said that the lots were sold in plots of 5 and that if there was an infant death that the infant was usually buried in the lot closest to the town of Milford, which is to the east of Harrington. That was true in this case. He showed me where Dora and Noah's daughter Ada was buried and I've marked that as #1. He said that there was no way of telling where the other two were buried in the lot, but they were all three next to each other. There was a low cement curb-like structure buried in the ground, surrounding the lot, which was covered by grass now but he was able to tell where it was and uncovered some of it to show me. There were no markers for any of the graves, but there were only three people noted on the card. The lot originally sold for $8 in 1916 when Ada died! I posted a photo with most of this info on the site. Laura
correction My grandmother's brother was Wilson Langrell, not Uncle, just wanted to make that correction. I remember that Wilson lived with my grandparents in ChiChester Pa. for a little while, I think it was during the 40's. Do you know of another child of John and Arabella MASLIN Langrell that was born around 1906? My grandmother spoke of having a sibling born 2 years before she was born in 1908. and the child had passed.
RE: Wilson Langrell Yes My great grandfather was John Langrell who was married to Arabella (Maislin) Langrell. My grandmother was their daughter, Blanche Moore Langrell. My grandmother often spoke about Wilson Langrell. If I am correct then Wilson is her Uncle. I am doing a search on ancestry.com for the Langrell tree and also my father's tree for Larkin. It's nice to meet you!
William VanHorn He was hiding under a tree. The large stone has Anna on one side and his name on the other and his name is 6 inches from the tree. About 1 foot away is another stone listed as Mother and dated 1996. I assume this person died then. A tough call but I think the name is Susan. The last stone here has the name of Jacob on it and US Calvary, no date but maybe WW 1? I will post William. What would you like to have me do with the rest?
