Photo requests for Rock Creek cemetery
Hi there,

I don't know if you are aware, but Rock Creek cemetery in DC has their interment records online. Although, far from perfect, it is sometimes useful for finding the locations of burials in Rock Creek. Please be aware that there are many misspelling, omissions and other errors in the database. It's a great idea to cross reference by date of death or other info if you can.

Just thought it might be of interest and assistance to you.


Have a wonderful evening!

Francis Thomas Anderson Siblings
Dear John,

Thank you for printing Judge Anderson's obituary--needed it for researching a paper I'm working on.

I thought you might like to know he had another sibling, William Neely Anderson (1806-1868. This brother was a country doctor who graduated from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He apparently treated the wounded and the people in his community during the Civil War--and afterwards when the community was devastated--without much concern for money (which not many people had at that point). He had one child.

There's an article in the Journal of the Roanoke Historical Society, Summer 1969, "The Four Anderson Brothers," written by his grand-niece (granddaughter of Judge Francis T.) Ellen Graham Anderson. It's an interesting family reminiscence about each of the brothers.

Best, Lee Ann Cafferata

Re: Bowyer Family
Hi John,

Thanks so much for your note. It would be great if you could send me a scan of the photograph! I know how Henry Bowyer of Greenfield fits into the mix, and have a pretty good hunch about where he's buried, too. Speaking of which, this reminds me... I owe you an e-mail.

All the best,

Me again John,

I am not aware of any obits.

I hope if there are any obituaries out there for the Peede family. You find them and it gives you new information about the family.

Good luck,

On Ernest Peede marker IT reads "LOVING SON OF LULA FERGUESON"

RE: Ernest W Peede
Hi John

The markers to the left of Ernest W Peede reads Lula Mae Fergueson 1898-1960 & Ben W Fergueson. On the Forest Lawn database it list Benjamin Witt Fergueson. To the right of Ernest is Lorene H. Atkinson 1893-1960. I hope this information helps & bears fruit on any Peede family connections.

Glad to be of help,

RE: caldwell cemetery
Hi John!

Thank you for your prompt response! I would be interested in exchanging genealogy info with you as I have been researching my Bowyer line also - in Monroe, Greenbrier County, WV, originally from VA. There is much speculative information about Michael Bowyer, Michael Bowyer, Jr., etc. and a Adam Bowyer in Monroe County, VA/WV and I am attempting to confirm data I have collected.

Mr. Conte from The Greenbrier had shared me the information about the cemetery and that Michael Bowyer's grave was there. I am excited to know that you are planning a trip to the area to get more of the names of those interred in the plot, as the photo he provided clearly shows more than 12 graves.

I hope to hear from you regarding your info about Michael Bowyer and ancestry, etc.

Best Regards,
Sheila Bowyer Kline

Hi John thanks for your message. He is also my great great great grandfather. One of his sons was William Alexander Anderson, and one of William's daughters married my great grandfather, Charles See McNulty, and one of his sons was William Anderson McNulty, and his only son was William Patrick McNulty, my father. All of us are descendent from Robert E. Lee and Robert the Bruce of Scotland (of Braveheart fame). We have one awesome rooted in Virginia family don't we? :o)
