Hi Louise,
Thanks so much for finding and photoing the monument for "cousin" Jere and his wife Mary. It's been a while since I submitted the photo request. Guess this affirms the adage, "All things come for those who wait." I really appreciate the quality photos. You can do this for me anytime!
Thanks again,

RE: Bowards in Rose Hill Cemetery
Thanks Louise. I added the picture for you.

I actually live in Raleigh, NC but I am a native of Baltimore. My wife and I get up to Baltimore about twice a year usually during the Christmas Holidays and then again in the Spring or early Summer. My direct line to the Boward Clan is Harry and Oma (nee Boward) McCrory. They were my Great Grandparents.

As far as documentating, I have about finished my family at Rose Hill, however, being a member of Ancestry always prompts future visits. We were actually there in June working on Oma's sister Carrie (nee Boward) Brezler Ottlein a new discovery.

We do visit Woodlawn and Loudon Park in Baltimore each time we are there because my grandparents are in those cemeteries.

BTW: If you are going to Baltimore Cemetery anytime soon, let me know as I do have 1 picture request.

Thanks also for the their headstone picture. I sent a correction to the memorial owner of Ethel, as her information was slightly off from the headstone dates. This was all possible thanks to you.

John W Isanogle, and his wives
Thank you very much for the great picture of their headstone. I greatly appreciate the time and effort you took in procuring this photo and uploading it to It is wonderful to have this image of their headstone with their memorials, since headstones do eventually break down and become unreadable. You do a huge service for so many people every time you volunteer to take pictures for and words cannot fully express my gratitude.

Best Regards,

Teresa Dorey
