Bio Photo Please feel free to contact me with updates by using the EDIT tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. FINDAGRAVE has rules, so please read the guidelines.

If you wish to use one of my photos, please contact me for permission.

Even though it is allowed, I respectfully request that no Death Certificates or census records, etc. be uploaded into the photo sections of the memorials that I manage. I would very much prefer that a family photo or headstone be occupying that photo space to represent their life. It is much more appropriate for this website.

It is my pleasure to transfer memorials that are not part of my family as long as it meets the Findagrave guidelines. Out of guidelines transfers are made on a case by case basis.

RE: Paul Lanham

Thank you so much for your reply. I understand entirely about the lack of details in the obituary. Paul was indeed laid to rest at Ft. Lincoln cemetery in Washington, D.C. after his funeral took place at Lee Funeral Home in Dunkirk, MD. I am planning on visiting his grave in the next few weeks since we're approaching the 8th anniversary of his passing. I will be glad to provide you a photo of his gravestone marker to include for this site's memorial when I record one during that visit.

My grandmother (Doris Marie Lanham, maiden name of Pilkerton and then Flora from her first marriage to a Harry Flora (deceased) of St. Mary's county, MD whose gravestone is also at Ft. Lincoln cemetery), is still alive and well. We are all very, very fortunate of our continued time with her and she is of very good health and mind, which is rare for her age. I actually saw her this past Saturday and she is quickly approaching her 94th birthday (born December 15, 1920. St. Mary's county, MD).

Paul Trueman Lanham (1919-2006)
Hi, I enjoyed reading your post of Paul Trueman Lanham (1919-2006)

Paul (or Pau-Pau, as I came to know him as), was the only grandfather I ever knew or ever had. My biological grandfathers passed prior to my birth. My father's father, Harry Flora, died from a heart attack on Thanksgiving in the late 60s when my father was only a child and my mother's father passed away just a few years before I was born from lung cancer, the same cancer that threatened to take Paul in the late 80s. Pau-Pau would continue to live with us for a few more decades with roughly half a lung remaining.

Paul remarried my grandmother (I believe in the late 70s), Doris (Previously Doris Flora from her marriage with Harry Flora and maiden name of Pilkerton), and without a question treated the Flora family he inherited as his own.

I am forever grateful for the 20 years of my life that I had with Pau-Pau. His love for history, all things literary, science, engineering, York peppermints, and laughter will always live on in my memories of him.

This is why I find this article of his a bit short in regards to having no mentioning of his second marriage with my grandmother, Doris. If these articles are for those of us still living to read and recollect upon those who have passed on, then it would be of the utmost importance to include all important aspects such as this simple detail.

Additionally, he passed away in December of 2006 and not 2007 as the article suggests.

Thank you for your time,

Brian Mitchel Flora

Location of cemetery
Hi Margarget: I am married to the great great grandson of Francis and Mary Crandell, Gordon Augustus husbands grandfather was the oldest child of John William, Francis' son Gordon, and some reason Gordon changed the spelling of the last name, the only one to do so as fare as I can figure. It was sort of in my quest to sort out why that I came upon Find A Grave, and the loads of information you posted! Well done! Are you related to us?
I was wondering if you know the location of the Tracy's Landing property where the Crandell Family Cemetery is located; one of the great grandchildren, John William Crandell and I were hoping to find it and perhaps secure owner permission to photograph the graves. All of John William and Lida's children have passed away, and their grandchildren aren't aware of property in Tracy's Landing.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
