Find A Grave Memorials # 29236757 and # 74481753: Robert Lilly and Fannie Moody
You may know this by now, but the memorial marker for Robert Lilly and Fannie Moody Lilly is wildly inaccurate. The memorial was erected well after the fact by descendents who had no personal knowledge about the couple and who fallen for a fraudulent genealogy written for the Lilly family by Gustave Anjou, a genealogist/con-artist who prepared hundreds of fraudulent pedigrees for families willing to pay the money. (Google his name for more information.)

According to a family bible, Robert Lilly was actually born 9 December 1742 and died 14 March 1818. This date of birth fits with other records. For example, Robert Lilly first showed up on records in 1761 in the household of Armiger Lilley as an overseer. See:

1761 Albemarle County, Virginia: From the Tithables list taken by James Cole dated June 10th 1761, "Armiger Lilley List: Jack & Glauster, Rob.t Lilley overseer."

The date of death from the family bible also fits because there are two March 1817 deeds signed by Robert Lilly Sr, so he clearly did not die in 1810.

On March 1, 1817, Robert Lilly, Sr., of Giles County, Virginia, made a deed to his son, William Lilly, conveying 50 acres of land situated on the north side of Big Bluestone River for the "personal maintenance of himself, the said Robert Lilly, Sr., and his wife, Fanny Lilly during life."

There also is a Giles Co. deed dated March 13, 1817, from Robert Lilly, to two of his sons, Thomas and Edmund Lilly, conveying the lower portion of his land situated on the north side of Big Bluestone River.

Although many family trees list Fannie Moody Lilly as Mary Frances, I have never found her listed on any document as Mary. The only name I have found is Fannie/Fanny. She was born about 1745, perhaps in Goochland Co., Virginia, the daughter of Edward Moody of Albemarle Co., Virginia.

Robert and Fannie married about 1762/1763 in Albemarle. Their first children were born in the 1760s and their last in 1780s.

Lilly genealogy is a mess thanks to the fraudulent pedigree of Gustav Anjou and the continuing gullibility of Lilly descendents. Please warn visitors to your memorial that the birth and death dates on the plaque are 100% incorrect.

grandmothers grave
Mr Dodson
Thank you so much for the picture of the cemetary my beloved grandmother is buried in. Her name is Thelma Josephine Dillow.
She was the wind beneath my wings and to finally find her on here and have a picture of the front gates means so much. I was so crushed when I lost this precious woman from my life. To know you were so kind to care to take the picture is truly heart warming. I live in Vero Beach, FL and am a long way from home. This is the only thing I have left of my grandmother and cherish the feeling that at least now I feel I am with her at the cemetary. May God bless you for your work and the consoling to the brokenhearted. My Father just passed away 2 years ago in Oct. He lived in Princeton WVA and was a veteran of the Korean War. God bless you

glitch dups
Hi Eddy
I just noticed there are several Dups in the Bowling Cemetery, Mercer Co, WV site
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GSln=karnes&GSiman=1&GScid=77832&CRid=77832&pt=Bowling%20Cemetery&
I noticed right off there were 5 Hobert O Karnes and the more I looked the list the more there are 2, 3 etc for others ...Would you go through and delete the dups .
Could have been Find A Grave lag or something but it sure did alot of several of the same memorials. I was going to send edit requests for linking some but will wait and see which ones you pick to leave before sending them.
that way it will make it easier to dump the dups that arent linked up..
Thanks so much
Vickie

Fred Perry
Chestnut Grove Cemetery
Hi Eddy,

I was wondering if you are able to tell me exactly where Chestnut Grove Cemetery is located. I tried to find it today, looked in Oak Hill, and checked the local funeral home and asked about it. The people at the funeral home told me there was no Chestnut Grove cemetery in Oak Hill.

They told me it is was located in Ansted, but when i got there and asked around, they said it was not there either.

So are you able to tell me exactly where it is for my next visit.

Thank you so much.

Hill Cemetery at Pipestem
Eddy,

I would like for you to transfer three records in Hill Cemetery at Pipestem to me, so that I can link them to their parents William Martin Hill #5053976 and Naomi Ethel Bower Hill #5053974. Naomi is in my wife's family. The records are:
Cleveland W. Hill #24216114
Herbert P. Hill #24216153
William Hill, Jr. #24216163. Also, William Hill Jr.'s name is William Martin Hill, Jr.

On the other Hill's in that cemetery, I could actually go through and connect them to their parents as well, or I could provide you with the info to do that. How would you like to proceed on those?

Respy,

David Jones
