|John Wright||Edward Wallace Davis at Shockhoe Cemetery|
I visited Shockhoe Cemetery for the first time in March of this year. I've recently discovered that my great, great grandparents and one of their children were buried there. I could only find Eliza Davis but not James L. Davis or his daughter Lettie. I did find three other headstones that I couldn't read but that was all. So,I was excited to find Lettie, James T. and Edward Wallace's burial records and photos on Find A Grave. I wasn't aware that those two sons existed. Your information has been very helpful. Did you take these photos last month? It's too bad that James L. Davis doesn't have a headstone. Also, do you know who planted flowers on Eliza's tomb?

Had no idea you were with the Shockoe Cemetery. We have been trying to get in touch with someone there for a long time. I am told my great grandfather Michael Patrck Burns was buried in Shockoe in the paupers section. No one sees to know that there is a paupers section. Is there any way we can check to see if he is buried there. We dont have much info on him. H was born 1832-42 in Cork County Ireland. He was maried to Annie Elizabeth Knauff Wagner Burns. Their last child was born 1881. And we have no burial date or Michael. He was a bar tender in downtown Richmond before his death. His children were Edward Burns, Ann Elizabeth Burnd, Josephine Burns and Robert E Burns. Thanks for your help

Thanks for checking the cemetery for his grave. If have a pic of the site, you can add it, but I would not go back just for that. At least we will know where he is buried. Thanks again

Thank you for all you do in keeping Shockoe Hill Cemetery information up to date. Specifically my 4th great-grandmother's tombstone which was raised, repaired and then photographed so I can see it as it was meant to be seen from my home in California. It is a beautuful, elaborate stone that could not be fully appreciated before.

Somehow, your photo is on the original memorial now #43231381, and the duplicate memorial is gone, so all is well. Thanks!

If you still have the great photo you took for Loren Grout #87409802, could you post it on his original memorial #43231381? Then the duplicate memorial can be deleted. Thank you!

|Benvereen||RE: My Great Grandfathers Tombstone!|
Yeah Sure..i would greatly appreciate as much data or bio as possible. Im in the process of trying to find out who his parents were or what plantation they came from. My grandmother does'nt remember who her grandparents were, but she does know the Palmer name came from their owners. I do understand that keeping records of slaves were rare back then, although it was done sometimes. I think prior to 1845, Appomattox was Buckingham County or something like that and a fire destroyed the original courthouse in 1892. Destroying all of the towns original records. So i dont know if i'll ever find out who they were. My Grandmother was born in 1923, and grew up on Old Courthouse Road, not far from the Courthouse. We're in Maryland, but still have alot of family down in Appomattox. Im not really close with any of them though. My Grandmother still has all of his pictures and newspaper clippings about his story. I appreciate your help Mr. Burden, have a blessed day!

|Benvereen||My Great Grandfathers Tombstone!|
Thank you so very much for adding my Great-Grandfathers Tombstone! He was born in 1863 in Appomattox, VA and lived near the surrender of Robert E. Lee during that time in 1865. He was the son of former slaves and lived to be a 103 years old and was featured in the local newspaper in 1965, to commemorate the hundreth anniversry of the surrender of Lee. He worked hard his whole life. He said his secret to longevity was "no secrets, just hardwork!" His daughter, which is my Grandmother, is still here with us at 90yrs Young!

Thanks so much & so sorry for the huge delay in fixing the memorials. Am working fast & furious to catch up with those in my inbox & thanks so very much for the info you've sent! I've been able to get back into my e-mail so I can receive mail from the "suggest a correction" feature again.
Fixed the 5 you just sent & back to the inbox to get a few more fixed before bed.

Thank you so much for your efforts to find my gggrandmother's gravestone. And thank you for the notes from the cemetery record. Family stories had her and her infant daughter dying of cholera while my gggrandfather was on the western frontier leaving her other children to be raised by their grandmother. So nice to have some of that confirmed.

|M Diane Lindall||RE: Thomas Brawner|
yes, he is a 2nd great grand uncle to me..funny thing is I grew up in southern calif, and never knew I had a relative buried just 20 minutes from where I lived. Of course, he died way before I was born, but even so, wish I still lived near there...
the info is helpful, I added your note to the bio area of his memorial THANKS
