Karl Edkar Hammil #24378884
Good morning~

You had fulfilled a photo request for me on Karl Hammil #24378884. I noticed on the edge of the photo there is another headstone with a name starting with a C. I am having some confusion with the spouses of this person and was wondering if you happen to have a picture of the headstone next to him. I would greatly appreciate it.

Secretus & Savanna Fluharty
Thank You So much for sharing the pictures and the extra information about my Great, Great Grandparents. My parents & I visited this cemetery in the 90's and I didn't get pictures. Trying to find information on Savanna is next to impossible online also. Their Daughter Guila Fluharty Jones is my Great Grandmother . I only met her once (early 70's) and she asked me to call her "Ola"
Thank You Again, keep up the great work.

RE: Christina Grubb
You are welcome!
I have always wanted to find that cemetery and photograph it, but I live almost 3 hrs away. Are you near there?

RE: Photo of my Grandfather
Hi Michele: I know we are related through Henry Elias Shuman and John Lacy Shuman and just curious about where your branch of Shumans lived and if there are still relatives in West Virginia. I assumed that you must live there since you take pictures of gravesites and markers there. I grew up in West Virginia and loved roaming around the hills with my parents visiting relatives but since my grandfather Henry Elias died at such a young age we had very little contact with the Shuman side of the family. My Dad seemed to think that his father had a sister named Julie who with her husband founded a Boys Academy (school) but in researching the family have not located anyone with that name. Have you or your relatives any info that would relate to this?
Also notice that you and I are probably not in the same age group since Henry Elias Shuman's brother is your great grandfather. happy to have you as a friend. Eleanor Shuman Williams

RE: Photo of my Grandfather
Michele: The Mary listed as an offspring isn't true. I think it must have been meant as a spouse. My grandmother's name was Mary.

RE: Photo of my Grandfather
I'm not sure which Mary you are referring to, but my Grandfather Henry Elias Shuman and Mary Elizabeth Geldbach had only three children: Henry Elias Shuman (Jr) Expired at birth, Emery Loyd Shuman (my father) and Earl Opal Shuman his brother. There are a lot of Marys in a lot of generations. I'll try to find your Mary if you give me more info. The site you refered me to is the Eclectic Artist who has a lot of info on the Shumans but I don't think he proved a lot of the info with facts. Let me hear from you. Are you on There is a lot of info there with record etc. to prove what is offered. Eleanor

RE: Photo of my Grandfather
Hi Michele: Thanks for the quick response. Any info I can get about my Grandfather Elias Shuman is appreciated. I had hoped to find more about where he was buried, but have been searching for several years now. Supposedly he was buried in the Barrackville cemetery where my Grandmother was buried, but it must be without a marker. He died so young with Typhoid fever, that my Father barely remembered him since he was only six and Dad's brother Earl was four. Now having your info helps make Elias more vivid.

It's nice to have another relative on the Shuman side. Eleanor

Photo of my Grandfather
Michele: Imagine my shock and surprise when I went to my Grandfather's site from his sibling name for Martha Shuman. I'm sure it is the same photo I have which must have been made from the one you have. My father is Emery Loyd Shuman son of Henry Elias Shuman and we often talk about how much my Dad and some of my brother's resembled Henry Elias. I notice that henry's wife's last name is spelled Gilderbaugh and may be in a marriage license, but she was a Geldbach whose family was from Barracksville. How are you and I related ? We must be if you have the picture shown. Please let me know. Thanks.

RE: Shuman Family Transfers
Michele, I was recently able to take photos of your Shuman family headstone at the New Cumberland Cemetery. Your cousin Joan Shuman Crago doesn't have a marker yet, but I photographed what her husband has on her plot.
