RE: Frank Hill Self
Thanks for your efforts. As a child, I went with my grandpa (Frank Hill) to see where he had grown up. Only the chimneys were left and the cemetery was grown up with weeds and brush. While we were there, grandpa told me about the time when he was a small boy he had taken a watermelon from a nearby neighbor. We went to the neighbor's house and he gave the people $5. This was some time in the late 60's and my grandpa was at least 70 at the time. That was the last time I visited the cemetery and I am not sure I would be able to find it now. As I recall, old Sam Self was hard on his boys and they all had to work hard on the farm starting at a very early age. He would call for the boys to get up well before daylight and had a big "strap" if they needed any encouragement.

RE: Frank Hill Self
Thank you so much for your quick reply. My great grandparents also lived in this area (George Samuel Self and Marietta Gentry Self). I wonder if there was any connection between my Frank Hill and this one. Who knows? When I saw your name, I thought of my father-in-law's close friend Jack Winfrey. My wife's parents are both buried nearby (Jesse Millard Parker - Sharon Church and Marjorie Self Parker - Self Cemetery). Also, her grandparents (Jesse Maxey Self and Florence Merkel Self).

Frank Hill Self
My grandparents are Frank Hill Self (1891-1972) and Annie Garland Lightfoot Self (1895-1975) and they are interred in the Dillwyn Town Cemetery. I was quite surprised to see Frank Hill Self listed in the Self family cemetery. I am very familiar with the 2 Self sites, as my mother in law is buried in one and my wife's twin sister's child is in the other. Where did the info come from that Frank Hill Self was buried here?

Gertrude Donald Richardson
I saw this name for Gertrude. However, I believe that Gertrude was a DAVIS from Buckingham Co Va. Her family lived off Rt 652 (Bridgeport) Rd. That family lived close to my Grandparents, Ivanhoe and Pearl Payne Bolling. She maried Mayo Richardson of Buckingham Co Va. Mayo had 3 sisters, Mary, Bessie, and Ella. Mary married a Golden and her son lives in Williamsburg, Va. (Al Golden) nicknamed "Duggie" may be about 90 yrs old now.

My Aunt, Irma Richardson Bolling was first cousin to Mayo. Patt Findley Freedman

RE: Micah memorial transfers
Dear J. Winfrey,

Thank you again once again. Your AWESOME!!

Something more you may want to know , as I see your kin from the Jefferson side. Peter Jefferson as well known married and lived in what is Powhatan County now for just over two years going into the wilderness of what was now the larger populated Ablemarle Co. which Buckingham, Amherst, Nelson Counties came from. His son named after his dad, Thomas taught him a lot in his skills. The grandson Thomas later a Gov. , VP, and third US President was amazed with documentation , Native Languages and Law. More of my kin , Col. Thomas Harvie, Sr. (( Barracks Road was more of his lands..etc.. )) (Peter Jefferson's Chief Executor,confidant,Lawyer ( Barrister) , and friend) put Young 14 Thomas into what then became William and Mary LAW. A place of his only Wife now called Poplar Forest was his heaven and sanctuary.

The Native ( First Nations) culture as well enthralled Thomas so much he sent Lewis and Clark on what would be the most important expedition of its time. Where Thomas spent so very much as his showcase that is where two major First Nations Languages meet and collide. Talk about being in the center of things..

Chambers in Patteson - Tucker Family Cemetery??
Do you know if the Patteson - Tucker Family Cemetery it has Chambers in it? It says it is only 86% recorded. I found the Library of VA record for a Chambers Cemetery on private property that is 2.75 mi west of Ransons. It looks like the Patteson-Tucker Cem is in the same area. Are these cemeteries the same? Or, are they just near each other? Thanks for any help.

Trotter Family Cemetary - Brunswick Co. VA
Greetings!! I am a new member of the community. I am a direct descendent of the Col. Isham Trotter (great-great-great grandfather) who is buried in the Trotter Family Cemetary in Brunswick Co. The findagrave entry indicates that in 2010 you had posted the cemetery photo on the site. Couple questions for you:
(1) Did you have any access issues getting into the Cemetary site? The satellite image seems to indicate that it is located off the end of what appears to be private road across some farmland.
(2) The cemetary site info and photo indicates it is a LARGE family cemetary (40 X 100 ft.), but only 5 graves are listed. Was that because there weren't others marked/monumented or the listed 5 were the only readable markers?
(3) What is the etiquette related to cleaning up a such an "abandoned" (?) family cemetary to at least get downed trees, limbs, etc. cleaned up? I plan on going to the cemetary this coming week (and 2 others, public & church) and would like to at least do a little of that.
Thanks for your efforts on behalf of the community. -- GREG W. (Mocksville NC)

RE: Goshen Church
Dear J Winfrey,

Yes, I created the page and would be happy to add. Can you perhaps also transfer William L. Parks to me? He was my 2nd G-Grandmother's son-in-law. I never found where her daughter, Nannie New Parks, is buried. :-( I have photographed the cemetery, and still have photos to add. :-)

Thank you and have a great evening,
Barbara New

George Chambers Cem transfer request
If you wish I would love to manage the memorials in the George Chambers Family cemetery in Buckingham Co, VA. I descend from Josias who lived in Buckingham Co from at least 1790-1810. I have been trying to figure out the connections between all the Chambers in that county. I am assuming I'm related to all of the Chambers from Buckingham. My FindAGrave ID # is 46622338.

Gary Cemetery.
The guy that farms the land around the Gary House said at one time he had saw a picture of the house with the family in front. And on the back of the picture are the names of the people. If he can find out who has that picture, do you want me to get a copy. The house is still there but empty. Thanks Terri.

I found the headstone for Joseph Winfree Davidson. He is buried with Helen Chappell Davidson (I presume his wife). I have added a memorial for her and uploaded a photo of the headstone to her memorial also.

RE: Silas A Thomas marker
It has been a minute since I created a Silas' memorial. However, I believe it was next to his wife, Arcelia. What I can do is verify this next time I go out to the cemetery, which will probably be some time this week. Still, I am confident that he and his wife are buried on the same plot.

I did transfer the memorial to you.
