On this date in 1788, Mary McATEE was born in Maryland. Mary is my paternal 5th great grandmother. Her parents were Samuel and Mary MASSEY McATEE. Mary McATEE married John WEDDING in 1810 in Maryland. I blogged about Mary a couple of years ago here.
I’ve told you what I know about Mary in my previous blog post about her. However, last year over Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks I was so fortunate to get to travel to Cincinnati, Ohio and I took side trips (of course!) to Clermont County. One of the places I went to was Calvary Cemetery in Felicity, Clermont County, Ohio. I got to visit John and Mary’s graves for myself. I even got to visit two of their daughters’ graves. It’s one thing to find the grave on the FindAGrave website. It’s quite another to go visit in person, leave flowers, take photographs, and just spend some time reflecting at the gravesite.
Here are some of the photos I took while I was there. I hope you all have a great weekend. Enjoy!
What’s left of John and Mary WEDDING’s gravestones. You can see that the name ‘Wedding’ is spelled differently on John’s stone.
Matilda WEDDING PADGET and husband William. Matilda is the daughter of John and Mary.
Nackey Ellen WEDDING married Thomas RICHARDS. Nackey was the daughter of John and Mary WEDDING.
Do you remember Theodore Clay LARKIN (the man with the penchant for baseball bats)? He was buried in the Felicity Cemetery- another cemetery in Felicity. When I went I couldn’t find his grave. I’ve been in touch with another researcher who says she will give me a photograph of his grave. If I receive it I will be sure to share it with you. For now, all I have is this building at the cemetery.
