Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Southern Maryland and have been assembling my extended family's genealogy for the last 15+ years. I continue to work on the genealogy in the fall and winter as time allows, and am glad to run down cemetery photos locally. Prominent names in my genealogy are Keefe, Casey, Hickey, Howley, Welsh, and Lally in New England; Stevens, Stout and Grant in Philadephia and Central New Jersey; Willis & Brady in Virginia and North Carolina; and Legg, Lecates, Meekins, Minch, Sparks, Burris, and Schauber in the Eastern Maryland (DelMarVa) peninsula.

If you find an error in a listing that I created, please don't hesitate to let me know. While doing my own genealogical research, I also photograph and list many unrelated gravestones as time permits. In keeping with policy, I will gladly transfer a memorial to you because you are directly related to that person.

RE: Thanks very much!
Steve, I have added the headstone photo to Louis Bornwasser's page. The Adelberg plot is in the section right across the road behind the Bornwasser stone.

Stephen, I have added a picture for Carolyn's grave which is a stone that only says MOTHER. I also have pics of stones for Carolyn E. Adelberg Moran (died 2/12/47) and her husband Edward Moran (12/11/1879 - 11/9/1960) if you want to add pages for them and I will add the pictures.

Hi Stephen, can you give me source for her maiden name perhaps? I'd like to include that in her bio and also maybe find her parents' names too. Thanks!

RE: Thanks very much!
You are welcome. The Adelbergs have a good sized family plot there right on the road. I did check the other Adelbergs around but did not find memorial pages for them.

RE: Karl Reihl, Jr.
Hi Stephen .. No worries on the reply. This is something I think we all do in our spare time, and that's sometimes limited. Karoline Glinka married Paul Flach after the death of Karl. They had one son, Herbert Flach. She and Paul are buried at Loudon Park Cemetery in Baltimore.

Incidentally, also buried there is the infant son born to Karoline and Karl. He died around the same time as Karl (flu epidemic) it's interesting to me that the child was not buried with his father in Rock Hall. Brief conversation with my mother .. She remembers her grandmother (Karoline) having some very harsh feelings toward Augusta, said she was never very nice or welcoming to her. Which could be why there was no mention of his little family in Baltimore? Must have been some strong animosity there. Aren't family stories so mysterious and interesting,?

Thanks for the transfer. Not exactly sure what to do with that .. But I'll figure it out.

Enjoy your day ..

Karl Reihl, Jr.
Hi Stephen .. I'll begin by asking what does it mean to transfer a memorial? I think I might like to have this one transferred to me. My 2 sisters and I are the only descendants of this generation.

The stone you have photographed, documented, and posted for Karl Reihl Jr. In Rock Hall is that of my great grandfather. I'm posting this publicly because there are quite a few Reihl's in Rock Hall, and I believe Karl's relationship should be clarified. Perhaps someone else will be interested.

Karl, Jr. Was born in Germany in 1884, but not as Karl Reihl. He was born to Augusta Araminta Gnuschke who was married at that time to (first name to be determined) Gnuschke. They divorced and she remarried, in 1888, the man Karl Sr (who was apparently called Carroll).

Fast forward to 1909, Karl Gnuschke, along with his wife Karoline Glinka and their 1-year old daughter Ellie immigrated to the United States. Our family story is that they took the name of Karl's mother's 2nd husband as a means for cleaner entry into the country. Perhaps he officially adopted Karl, even though he was married with a child?

The Jr. And Sr. Is awfully confusing if he was indeed adopted, in a sense. So all of the Reihl's that are listed as his siblings are actually half-siblings (sharing only their mother) .

So Karl "Jr's" record should include:
Birth name: Karl Gnuschke
Wife: Karoline Glinka
Children: Ellie Augusta Frederica Gnuschke (Reihl) b 1908
(Ellie's birth certificate lists Gnuschke .. She is my grandmother)
Margaretta (Grace) Reihl, b around 1911
Paul Carl Reihl, b 1918, d 1919

Karoline married again, had another child, and is buried in Baltimore with her 2nd husband

Thanks for what you do. This was a really helpful find.
