Bio and Links
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: Crawford
Oh, also, Margaret, it occurs to me--if you want to provide me with names and dates of death, I'd be happy to search the Evening Star for death announcements for your Crawfords. I think my access is only up to 1922, though.

Let me know!

RE: Crawford
Oh, I do miss those archives. The folks at Congressional promise they're going have that material up again, but it was a heck of a blow when they switched to the new website. I've been trawling old newspapers on the National Archives site, and submitting death notices and obits to Congressional as I come across them, but like I said, I miss having those all collected in one spot!

I love Congressional, I do--it was my first BIG cemetery, and we've spent hours/days there. But recently, I've been doing a lot of work at Rock Creek because it is so under-recorded. Specifically, I've been working on the shut down of old Holmead's/Western Burying Ground and the transfer of remains from there to Rock Creek. But I absolutely still work Congressional, and I am happy to know you--your memorials are terrific, you're very conscientious, and I always appreciate new information and smart eyes!

Happy to oblige--thank YOU for the information!

THANK YOU for taking the time to write--
I am friends with the MacGragors who are immediate descendants of those in Stafford. Charlie Embrey, a MacGregor descendant via his mother, provided some of the personal details of his parents and aunts/uncles.
And thank you for the kind words---

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!
