John Elderidge Atwood Sr
Hello JoAnn,

Re my earlier message:

John Elderidge Atwood Sr, born to Henry Clay Atwood and Margaret Capps, Princess Anne County, Va on Feb 19, 1924.

John married Joye Munden March 1, 1947 in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

John and Joye had the following children:

Bonnie Joye Atwood, 1948 in Norfolk, Virginia
Ediebeth Atwood, in Norfolk, Virginia
Paula Munden Atwood, in Norfolk, Virginia
John Elderidge Atwood, Jr., in Norfolk, Virginia

John and Joye divorced in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

John died peacefully on May 12, 2011 in Suffolk, Virginia at his eldest daughter's home, Bonnie Joye Atwood.

He was cremated, where his ashes were carried over a special place within John's heart by the gentle winds of Virginia.

Henry Clay Atwood - a mistake made
My wife's grandfather, the name in the subject line above, had another son not listed on his bio.

Name was John Elderidge Atwood, Sr, of Princess Anne County. John was the bridge opener for years at Pungo Ferry, there in the old Princess Anne County, now Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Would appreciate it, if you would add to the list of Henry's children, one John Elderidge Atwood Sr. John, with wife Joye Munden, Bonnie Joye Atwood, Ediebeth Atwood, Paula Munden Atwood, and John Elderidge Atwood, Jr, lived right near the Creeds Elementary School, in old Princess Anne County, Virginia.

Will search online for appropriate information about birth and death vitals and get back to you. If need to please contact me at

Way overdue, but nonetheless THANK YOU for the photos of Addison and Emma BROCKETT. If I could also get good copies of the original photos in hard copy, I'd be appreciative and happy to reimburse you.

Thank you for the wonderful work you did with the Brock Family Cemetery. I was going to put it on Find a Grave, only to find it was already there. Unfortunately, the Cemetery still need more care given to it as it ages.

Andrew B. Smith (Find A Grave Memorial# 24475967)was my great grandfather and I see you make reference to his marriage to Vesey Elena Brumley in 1904. I haven't been able to find her burial or even a record of her death, do you have any info on her at Willowood? Thank you so much

You show memorial number 42425130 for Susan Caroline Redd (presume married name Kain)yet Hartley is on the stone.
Did she remarry after Mr Kain's death? Or have I have blitzed by the change to DST?

My Great Grandfather was Tiberius D Lane.

If you have "Google Earth" then input the following coordinates to fine the cemetery. It is now just a clump of trees. I have been to this location and could not find any markers.

Lat N36-41-56.01
