Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm descended from the following families on my mother's side: Berquist[Bergquist], Andersson, Hiltz, Behm, Friedrich, Stutt, Huntmann, Sinskey, Hartlove.

Several years ago I published a family history book, Making Port: the History of a Baltimore Family. This Collection Includes the Families Hiltz, Sinskey, Berquist, Hartlove, Stutt, Behm, and Susemihl.

The book is available on Amazon, but contact me if you would like to learn about these families. I love sharing what I know!

RE: Parks in Prospect Hill
Thank you so much for taking the time to get the photos and creating the memorials. I would like them to be transferred to me fo sure as they are my relatives. Thanks.

RE: Phipps family
I went through the month of June 1973 and did not see Ruth's obit. I'm assuming her husband won't be there either. Sorry.

RE: Phipps family
I think this is your Ruth Phipps, You should be able to send updates based on this:

Name: Ruth Phipps
State of Issue: Delaware
Date of Birth: Thursday October 25, 1888
Date of Death: June 1973
Est. Age at Death: 84 years, 7 months

Last known residence:

City: Wilmington; Talleyville
County: New Castle
State: Delaware
ZIP Code: 19803


I think this is your George Phipps, Sr. You can update his dates:

Name: George Phipps
State of Issue: Railroad Board
Date of Birth: Saturday September 11, 1886
Date of Death: August 1978
Est. Age at Death: 91 years, 11 months

Last known residence:

City: Wilmington
County: New Castle
State: Delaware
ZIP Code: 19806


As I said in a previous message, if they died in Chester county, Pa they may have an obit. Delaware, I'm not much help.

RE: Hiltz memorials
So nice to hear from you. I can only link parents and spouses to the memorials which I create; however, I noticed that you had created the memorial for Philip Hiltz, so you are able to link his parents from his (Philip's) memorial. I am also going to transfer the memorials to you....since I am not related. Loved the photo you added! And, thanks for contacting me.

RE: Conrad Hiltz
Thanks for writing and for the kind words. I have the obituaries for Conrad and his son Lewis that were printed in the Baltimore Sunpaper. Would you like me to send them to you? Just let me know which email to send them to. Have a great day.

Baltimore City Directories
Thought you all might be interested in this link to the Baltimore City Archives. It contains a listing of Baltimore city directories dating back to 1752. Some are only available on microfilm, but many, as early as 1799, have been digitized and can be viewed on-line. It is an amazing resource when trying to determine here in Baltmore your ancesotrs lived.

I was looking at the Section Y part of the Loudon Park microfilm records this evening and I found some more information about the Sinskey and Wagner families buried there that you might be interested in:

Annie E. Sinskey: buried 3/1/1901 at age 51 (she is in FindAGrave as Elizabeth)
Ella Sinskey: buried 3/1/1901 at age 36
John A. Sinskey: buried 3/1/1901 at age 48
Adam Wagner: buried 3/25/1903 at age 36

Adam Wagner's record indicates "Removed from Mt. Carmel Cemetery". Unless you have reason to believe that Annie, Ella, and John all died at the same time, I suspect they may have be re-interred as well. However, I'm not sure what the age on the record means in that case; probably age at death.

Hope this is helpful.

RE: Edgar F. Sinskey

I went back to the plot today and found markers for Conrad, Emma, and Mary Wagner. I uploaded photos to their memorials. There is a photo of the entire plot for your reference. The other families buried in that plot are Butler, Uppercue, and Machett, but they may not be connected if the plot was divided in half and sold separately. Plot 49 has a marker for Charlotte Wagner Wainwright (1913-1996), which made me wonder if she was connected to the the Wagners who are next door.

RE: Edgar F. Sinskey

I don't think I realized you were looking for the Wagners and for Ella Wood as well. I know they are buried at the same location (Y50) and I know there is a monument for someone there, but I can't remember who. I will check next time I am there.

The Hiltz family (including Maggie and William and William's parents Christina and Philip) are not buried at Y50, but are buried not far away in Y35. There are quite a few members of that family there.

I couldn't find any record of J.Frederick Sinskey, but I will check again if get a chance.

Take Care,
