RE: #43248840
Hi there
Ok, I see what you did now; The gentlemen's grave that I photographed was for another man buried in the Mt. View Cemetery; I need to see if he even has a memorial established with Mt. View on findagrave
no problem I will delete that photo now that I understand what happened, I got a bit lost at first. lol

Hi Ladean
Thank you so much for following up with me. I will go back and review the memorial you've mentioned.
It's great to follow up on ALL leads, I've found in my family research over the years.... WTG
Happy Hunting and you are very welcome. :)

RE: Jeremiah Gwynn
I am obviously going to have to get back to Jeremiah. When uploading stuff onto my website, I concentrated first on my folks' direct lines, and am filling out kids, aunts, uncles and cousins from there. I don't know how I missed Martin but will certainly add him and his descendants. Thanks for letting me know he was missing!

RE: Gwynn questions
So far as I know, Edmond was the only husband Lucy Bernard ever had. Was Edward shown as her husband somewhere? I have never found who Edward married, if anybody - I suspicion Edward died young.

I have seen Hugh often called a Colonel but I don't know whether he was Colonel of a local militia in Virginia (which I think likely) or was formally commissioned in the regular British Army. The latter is possible if his father had him educated back in Britain, but I have seen nothing regarding anything like that. There is some big discrepancies concerning where and when Hugh was born. I listed on my page what I think was the most likely, but of course can't be completely sure, since all we have are a few records and a lot of family legend. I am satisfied he is Owen and Grace's son (to me the prevalence of first names in the family is the clincher) and spent at least most if not all of his life in Virginia. Hugh was called a Colonel in the record of the land grant of part of Gwynn's Island dated Dec. 1652. He was also a justice of the peace (see York Co. VA Records), and a burgess (see Stanard's. Colonial Virginia Register). Besides the land on Gwynn's Island, he owned land in York, Westmoreland and Isle of Wight Cos. As for the bit about getting Gwynn's Island from an Indian princess in 1634, it is nothing more than a pretty legend, although he may well have first acquired land there in that year. At any rate, he was an important man in early Virginia, and I don't think they were calling him a Colonel simply as a courtesy title.

Hope that helps rather than just adds to the confusion around him!

RE: 67847833
Thank you much Ladean for the reminder that I had intended to put a note on Richard Gwynn's page on my site!

Every single source I have seen, None of them primary, states he died in 1777. Millenium File, Family search, all of them. Elizabeth's headstone not only gives her date of birth as 1779, but asserts that he and Sarah are her parents. I like to think she knew who her folks were and when she was born (although she might have habitually knocked a few years off her age), so all I can conclude is that Richard's date of death is best rendered 177? or before 1790. And who knows, a primary source might one day pop up somewhere - and be hard to read! :)

As for where Richard was buried, the best I can say is somewhere in the vicinity of Ronda, Wilkes Co. I have looked all over old lists of burial records for the area and no sign of him, and no doubt his headstone crumbled away ages ago. Sorry I can't help there! And yes, people who plop burials "where they should be" drive me batty too! Glad to see you are trying to correct things - best of luck to you.

All Tribal Pages sites are set up like mine. I blundered across Tribal Pages a couple of years ago and it has been one of the happiest accidents I've ever had in genealogy. (I too started doing my tree before computers - bless the electronic age!)

Sorry I can't be any more help with Richard but give me a holler any time!

RE: 67847833
Hi, Ladean!

Glad to get your note! If you go to the bottom of my bio page, you will find the link to my website, where I have my family tree, Gwynns of course included. Just click on "G" and scroll down to Gwynn and the individuals will come up. You will not need a password to see them or their info when you click on their names.

On Hugh's Find A Grave memorial, the info on his places of death and birth are different to what I have, namely that Hugh was born in Gloucester Co., Virginia and passed away on Gwynn's Island, now in Mathews Co., VA. His father Owen was born in Wales and came to Virginia in 1611 as part of the Jamestown Third Charter - see the source notes on my page for him on my website. The years of birth and death and first spouse for Hugh are the same as I have. His second wife was Ann Burnham - to my knowledge he had no children by Ann.

I am always pleased to hear from kinfolk, and will be happy to hear more from you. You may contact me via email if you like using the "click here" link near the top of my webpage.

God Bless and take care, Dorothy "Dee☼"

P.S. I don't have all my sources up on my webpage yet but I do have them on paper or thumb drive and will be glad to give them on request. Owen's sources are listed on the site.

When Bill set up the memorials, if he didn't know where they were buried, he'd pick a likely place and add 'burial unknown' in his notes.

You are very welcome. I have had so many people guide me along the way, it is a small way of giving back.

RE: 43248840
It is quite peaceful at this cemetery,although aesthetically not fancy, it has its own beauty and peace.
I have been wanting to give back and help for a very long time.
You are welcome, thanks for the appreciation.

RE: X. B. Cox
I don't think Find A Grave will let me delete it since I've transferred it to you.

Good luck with getting a satisfactory result.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

RE: X. B. Cox
Transferred my entry for Mr. Cox to you for you to do with as you wish.

If you want the photos I entered on the memorial - capture them and put them on your entry if you want. I don't mind you using my photos on Find A Grave.

I'm certainly not in a numbers race so I don't mind the entry being deleted if that is your desire.

I'm always willing to help with photos, obits, etc.

Have a great day !

RE: John Lawrence Sheffield
Hello. The death certificate I have found for him lists John Sheffield and Mary Rose Henry as his parents and the 1940 census shows him, his wife Lallie and both of their mothers living with them.
I also found Mary Rose Henry and John Riley Sheffield on the Texas marriage index for December 10, 1883; which would have been 3 years before John Lawrence was born. If you might have any source information I could look into to figure this out I would be very appreciative. Thanks again.

Hello. I have some questions about the family information on John Lawrence Sheffield's memorial. The records I have been able to find show Mary Rose Henry as his mother. I would really appreciate any help or information you might have.
Thank you so much.
