Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I are primarily documenting cemeteries in Washington and Frederick Counties in Maryland. We are documenting the entire cemetery, section by section, row by row, taking pictures of every stone. Everyone should be remembered, and family members should not have to beg for a picture of the stone.

All edits, corrections and links are welcome. I would appreciate it if you would use the "edit" feature on the memorial to send me edits and requests for transfer. Sorry, but due to time restraints I am going to have to ignore/delete any requests that are left on my profile page. If I decline an edit it is because I cannot find proof - and yes, I research every edit. If I do decline I always add a comment with the reason. You would not believe how many edits I get that I have to decline because they are incorrect.

I WILL ONLY LINK TO MEMORIALS THAT ARE IN ACTUAL CEMETERIES. This is Find-a-Grave - if you don't know where they are buried don't put them in. Please read the FAG rules. If you put a memorial in without a cemetery you have 30 days to add the cemetery.

I would like to thank everyone who has sent me edits and links, especially FAG Contributors, Eloop III and Genealogy Nut. PLEASE DO NOT POST OBITUARIES AS A "PICTURE" to any of my memorials. If you send me the obituary I will add it to the bio - and give you credit.

We all need a chuckle now and then:

TUCKER, a pet cat owned by W.E. Itnyre, Boonsboro, which died last week at the ripe age of 18 years, was given a real burial, the remains of the feline, which was highly prized by the family, being laid to rest in a coffin, which had been constructed by the cat's owner at the Maryland Pressed Steel plant here. The coffin had been used by salesman for the Montross Metal Casket Co., in selling the product.

William S.Shatser
I have found on obit for William S. Shatser, from the Brunswick paper and the Echo Pilot-Greencastle. I can transcribe it to you, if you want.He was killed along side a railroad track,the one obit supposed that he'd been asleep on the railroad track, when a train came by. Had been married about a year, to Belle Martin who was pregnant when he died, but the daughter Catherine Theodosia Shatser, only lived a year. Belle and Wm were married 10-27-1898 at Weverton, Md, by Cyrus E. I think the last name is Held, handwriting is hard to read, he was pastor of Bethany Luth. Church,-Per Md. marriage license. Linda Bingaman, (Great grandaughter of his sister Martha Alice Shatzer-Diehl)

Samuel S Harrison photo
Dear Sanebee:

By chance I was doing some genealogy research today and stumbled across this site and found information on some of my ancestors.

Specifically, my Great Grandfather - Samuel Smith Harrison and his parents information where shown. Of special interest to me was a photograph of him with a note below you typed:

"This picture was rescued from an antique store in Harrisonburg, Virginia. If a family member would like to have it please contact me through Find A Grave and I will send it to you".

I was able to download an electronic image of the photo. Thank you so much! I will send to my father (soon to be 85) and my son's.

Could you please let me know more about how you found this photo in Harrisonburg antique store as it has me so curious.

Thanks! I really appreciate you taking the time to scan and post the image.

Tim Harrison
