Bio and Links
Retired in Maryland. This is a hobby along with family genealogy. I am prone to honoring our veterans and police officers and am especially grateful to those from the State of Maryland. They are the reason we are able to rise every morning in a free society and do what we do on a daily basis. Every one who wears the uniform of the United States is owed a debt of gratitude by us. May God bless and keep them all.

Isreal Howard Lower Chanceford Cem.
I saw a listing for Israel Howard and checked it out. He would be my great great grandfather. We've never been able to find I
His origin. He think from Lebanon, Pa. He was a coal burner for the forge. We were never sure him and Rebecca were ever married because she continued to collect the civil war pension of her late husband Martin Kreisler Sure would love to know more if you are willing to share.

James Norris 1804
First I would like to thank you for all you do, you have a kind heart. I am a descendant of James F Norris and Sarah A Gosnell, I noticed you had his will listed I would love to get a copy. Can you tell me where you found it, I noticed TP 7 p 163. Is that located at Baltimore County government. I would be so grateful for any information. I have been researching my dads family for 17 years must have missed this one.

Thank you

J. Everett

Husband of who? #56792426
Just to clarify, the Highland Presbyterian Church Cemetery photo request for this findagrave entry may seem odd because there is already a photo. Your photo clearly shows "Husband" engraved on the the stone. Thank you for that. What we're trying to figure out is who LeRoy was husband to and hoping perhaps there's a nearby headstone or other engraving. So if you are there and could help, we'd be much obliged. TIA

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Jean Halford in Holly Hill Memorial Gardens(Memorial# 75974694).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Maryland Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Jdrhook [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)
Obituaries Project Manager, Alford American Family Association

Memorial 71584360
I have a request for a correction to Edgar's parents. The mother and father listed (Alice and Melvin) are actually his mother's parents, not Edgar's. It is a little confusing because Betty was a Bull who married a Bull.
My parents were very close friends with Betty and Edgar and I have many good memories of them. Thanks so much for correcting.
