RE: Alice Gerhardt Hunt
What a tragic situation. Some people's lives were/are incredibly difficult.

RE: Alice Potter Hunt
Hello Jan,

I understand from the cemetery employees that that section of the cemetery was for people with low incomes and the records, unfortunately, were not well maintained in those long ago years.

I've found in some cemetery records the name on the record was that of the person purchasing the plot and not the name of the deceased.

We stared long and hard at that little brass plate and were unable to decipher anything. It wasn't engraved as the surface was smooth to the touch.

Let me know, if at some point, you would like me to delete any of the photos.

Good luck!

RE: Memorial # 64615488
Hi Jan,

The cemetery staff came to the conclusion it was either the unmarked "rectangle" or the headstone with the illegible plaque. I added all three photos to assist anyone looking for the final resting place to be able to find the correct "area". I can delete all the photos if that is your preference.

Thank you for the kind words - they are appreciated.

Would you please remove the obit on this memorial. I have added the pertinent info so it is not needed.

Hello Jan,

I am hoping you have information about the Baker family related to the May family. I am Baker related but this seems to be a part of my line as well. I would very much like to talk with you.

RE: Nancy Reed / Roberts Caviness
Hi Jan, We are in agreement. Nancy nee ROBERTS was Henry's first wife and Nancy nee REED is second wife. I have not been able to locate it new documents. I never get a reply from the Barbara Von?? who is directly kin to Henry's son, John Henry. I have emailed her so many times. She emailed be a couple of times and that was it. I would love to get some obits and the remaining death certificates. I will start working on it again. How about you, anything new? Hope you had great Holidays and a good Merry Christmas. Connie

RE: Nancy Gladden King
Original: "I have corrected Nancy's name to Nancy Gladden King Pullen as Mr. Pullen was her last husband."

My mistake. I am sorry. You are right. Thanks for catching that and helping make Find A Grave the best it can be.

RE: Thank you
Dear Mrs. Jan Turner,

Thank you again.

You may have heard about Dutch/Flandarian and New England frugality.. such a truism. that may well be your answer to the lack of participation in DNA testing from that area. Do know of the frugality as I have kin, lived/been in all three.

Having luck in some of our families documentation. Sometimes which actually as you well know can be and is doctored by some. DAR/SAR etc require tress sources..

Have you ever noticed as I a/we have the average age change for females is about 2 years less than actual ages? Yes that's not including the change for N.S. from O.Style either. Names were not a normalcy really for the majority before Napolean as many of his methods are still par now. Yes his height was the actual average at that time.

On our Harvies/Harvey in what was Virginia and also is North Carolina now .. it was the first English Settlement ( so called Lost Colony) now called Ronaok. The first Male Child born in our continent from English decent was Baby Harvey. I still search for our kins name of that child.

You probably have seen/read on what was shown from the ruler of the Powhatan Tribes / Bands. It was British Copper pieces, musket barrels , iron implements, a brass mortar..etc.etc. all from the Ronaok Colonists. So he knew what these newcomers had available to trade etc.. except the drought, lack of provisioning/poor planning, and lack of food caused the Lost Colony to become intermingled (IMHO) with other lesser bands/tribes in the coastal are in the Virginia Colony.

Documentation is so important for preservation of DATA/Facts not as they want people to see things, but how it is actually and factually.

Still to decipher is vital if given the correct keys. As in Egyptian, Icelandic or Mayan as examples.

Hope this helps. You I see and saw do help so many people. Not just in Md. but everywhere!

I have to ask what your searching for too?

GBY! May your Mothers Day be well, full of family, and blessed !


Jonathan Robert De Mallie

PS: Yes I am still searching for more Harvies/Harveys and Potters too.
