Bio and Links
My goal is to document as much of my family history as I can for my children and nieces and nephews. Findagrave has been a great asset. I hope the information I post can be as valuable to someone else as the information I have found has been valuable to me.

RE: Cora Brown Avery - Congressional Cemetery
You are just awesome. James worked on the Capitol as a plasterer and boy, those Avery/Brown folks keep coming out of the woodwork! I knew my Great Grandmother Emma (Cora's daughter) had a lot of siblings but not that many lol.

Thank you so much. By chance are you a Brown too? I'm always intrigued at how families interweave. Now if the family "stories" were always true....:-)

RE: Cora Brown Avery - Congressional Cemetery
I don't know if you ever got my reply but I am still interested in the transfer - and any other help with Congressional Cemetery work. I have found lots of other Adams and Avery members there. Let me know please if I may ever be of service to you with anything here or in the surrounding area. Best regards, Becky

Pauls and Browns
I updated the memorial of William S Paul.

Found his data card while looking for other Pauls that married my relatives. Email me (listed on my profile) to see if we have some common connections?

Boice family
Hello Bryan

Today I bumped into John M Boice and family buried in American Mechanics Cemetery. I looked at the card and there is a Sarah J buried with them (mother) of the children and wife of John M Boice. She is not on Find A Grave. Since this is a family you are researching, do you know anything about this woman?
I'm not sure if she is the one from my family- have conflicting documents.
I have connected to them through a Sarah Jane Jones who may go by the name of Mary Jane in some documents which is why I'm not sure if this is the right track. The names of the children match up for those in subsequent generations however. I am trying to find out if I'm on the right track. So, my question is, in your research, have you traced the parents of Sarah J. Boice, wife of John M Boice? If so, would you share this woman's maiden name or mother's name with me. If this is indeed a match I have lots of info to share also. Thank you for your patience in this matter. gsprag

Yes, please go ahead and use the photo.

If you call the cemetery office and/or visit it with the data you have, they may share details on who else is buried in the plot. Some cemeteries will not unless you are the plot owner or require some other process.. But give it a try.

Please accept my condolences with the recent loss of your father-in-law. I've received your request and have gladly transferred his memorial into your care.

From his obit, he sounded like a very nice man and fun to be around. I have a soft spot for all veteran's and Yankee fans. :)

You and your family are in my prayers.

Bryant, I also added an image of the WNY Station Log for June 27 1842 re the Death of Thomas Barry and David Davis and a transcription of the Station Log entries for June 27 and 28 1842. Note the entry for 28 June 1842 the ship joiners made the two men coffins.

Regards John

Bryan, I recently found the Washington Navy Yard Station Log entry for July 27th 1861 which records the deaths of two workers in the Rocket House but not by name. I have posted the image with a transcription to the memorial page. I am currently working on transcribing sections of the Station Log and came across this 1861 page today. Best regards John
