I have always though i was interested in Geneology but never took an active role until my father died. He was the last living relative. That is when it occured to me that unless i did something then future generations would suffer the unknown and the past would be dead with them. That is when i started my journey. I appreciate all that have helped and will help me. I live in North Carolina but was born in Washington DC and was raised in Maryland.
Flaherty Family in Manassas Hi Bob, Just wanted to let you know that the Flaherty family in Manassas are buried in the Manassas Cemetery, not the Confederate Section. There is a separate entry for this cemetery.
RE: John and Minnie Miller You're welcome, I was happy to do it. Actually it was a close call. I had almost given up finding the graves but then noticed an indentation in the ground covered over with leaves. I wiped them away and there it was. The earth and leaves on the stone made it nearly invisible.
I didn't see any others, and I do always check around where I find the markers for others with the same last name. I put the plot numbers in edits to you for the 4 memorials; Charles and Lavenia (no "r" in her name) are in Meditation 814-1 & 2, and Carroll & Mary are in Nativity 4C - 408-3 & 4. Nativity is an area not far from the cemetery office, but Meditation is all the way on the other side of the cemetery; I'm surprised they're that far from each other, but maybe that was all that was available at the time. Another reason for pre-need purchases!
The office looks up the plots for me; for privacy reasons they can't let me in the files, so unfortunately I don't know if there are others there. After all the time I've been going there I've become friends with all of them, though, so next time I go up I will try to get the information for you. No promises!
RE: Benjamin Pease Photo (3rd Great Grand Uncle) Hi Bob. My father gave me the task of documenting our family as he was beyond the ability to do so himself. He had written notes whenever he talked with someone in the family but never assembled the info. it got me going on Ancestry.com and Find-a-grave.com and now I fine that I enjoy looking in old cemeteries all over New England. You have my permission to use any of my photos of stones and cemeteries for your genealogy projects provided you give me the photo credit. Good luck with it. Mike Simonds fm2n
