RE: KWB, topsoil, and grass seed
I am not a family member. I do know family members. I have snuck top soil but it has washed away. Someone else was going to seed it but didn't. Needs thinkings.

RE: Robert South Barrett
I went in this morning and put in links to all the other Barrett children to both parents including Kitty Pozer and Lila Alfriend who were missed. Someone had picked up Reba. All of KWB's children are at Aquia except Charles who is at Arlington National Cemetery after being buried a couple of different abroad after he died during WWII and baby Witters who is with the Barretts in Wytheville. Do you know the PL who posted so many of graves at Aquia?

RE: Robert South Barrett
I am so pleased to have inaccurate memorial gone and "mine" linked. You of course know Mary Kerry as I do. When last I was at Aquia, I thought that KWB's grave needed a load of top soil and some grass seed. It is the right time of year. What do you think?

RE: Airey Neave
no I think the Vicar had been there a while but he must have had a bad day, glad it has been sorted though, never heard of Hinton Waldrist and I thought I knew that area fairly well

Edwin--I have made the changes that you suggested on the RSB memorial. I am glad the other is gone. People keep getting confused. I hope to get all the children linked to the parents. I think I put in suggestions but not all have been yet accepted. I need to get back on it. I had great difficulty finding the RSB grave which is really odd. I knew he died in Wytheville. He wasn't included in the pre-findagrave lists of graves that the historical society had although his parents were. I figured there wasn't a chance that KWB buried her beloved husband without a marker--and so she didn't. A DAR friend went out in the snow to find him. We were quite confused posting the Bible verses until we realized that we were using Revised Standard and KWB used King James. Then it worked. I might add a picture of him. Are you a relative?

RE: Airey Neave
Well done you! I thought I was going mad. As Find A Grave look after this memorial it may take a while to change - perhaps a photo from the correct location will help. I tried to get them to edit his full name but the edit was refused.

RE: Airey Neave grave
I did check with the Rector of the church before I made the memorial and was told he is buried there, perhaps no stone was erected at the time because of the circumstances of his death

RE: Airey Neave
I have asked the person who originally created the memorial; she tells me that the vicar said he was certainly there. I think, with local knowledge, and a better look he could be located which is why the request should stand. I can try again later in the year unless someone else does it.

RE: Rock Hill Methodist, AKA Rockhill Meeting House
Ed, Good work. I added the cemetery Walnut Hill based on informatio Donna Tolson posted as to burials there. I still have to go over my notes on this as not sure dates she posted are correct. This will be a work in progress. Thanks for all your help in getting the Sternes' in order.

Cant figure this all out - the father of Edward Lee Sterne buried ther (Walnut Hill). Thanks Anne

RE: Rock Hill Methodist
Edwin, That would be great - I believe there may be many others buried there - names mentioned on deed transfer - many Taylor names. Wonder if there is a record anywhere of burials? Good work. Anne

Ed Really interesting - did a nice job on renovation - comes with 1 acres of land. Wonder where cemetery is in relation to house and if it goes with property. I checked overhead map and could not see obvious headstones. This is always good stuff to know! Thanks for this.

RE: Edwin Lee Sterne in Rock Hill
Ed, Thank you so much for even looking into this as not sure. Sterne is my line and a handful of us have researched the name over the years. I gave up several years ago, but now that Find a Grave has flourished so much, I am back to looking and connecting all the kin.

Edwin Lee Sterne in Rock Hill
Hello - after your message to me I began a hunt as to find correct information on this and behold I found a deed transfer. Although still not sure if it is Rock Hill Methodist of Baptist, I believe it is Baptist:

Researched by Marshall E. Heflin

The Free Lance newspaper of April 22, 1892 states in the Stafford Court column of the paper: Recorded in the Clerk’s office of Stafford County Court for the April term;“A deed for land from P. M. Taylor et als. to Rock Hill Baptist Church.”
I believe I have found the deed mentioned above in Deed Book Volume 5, Page 169 in the Stafford County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office and to me it looks like a deed to the Rock Hill Methodist Church land. Rock Hill Baptist Church existed at this time and the writer for The Free Lance may have assumed Baptist.

Taylor, P. M. et el to B. S. Rock Hill Church Trustees

The State of Texas } Know all men by these presents that we and each
County of Travis } of us, Palm M. Taylor, John Wm. Taylor, Fannie E. Taylor, Ed W. Taylor, Kate S. Hill, Jennie H. Harding, Nannie B. Bower, and Hattie M.

RE: Your photo of grave of Edward Sterne
As far as I know it was at an old church building being renovated as an individual's home. Boyd Curtis took me and a cousin to see the graveyard. Boyd is a 3rd cousin of mine and lives in Stafford County, Virginia.

Thank you for notifying me, but I demur.
1. I've never been in the Chinn Cemetery, so couldn't have photographed the marker there.
I posted Henry's biopage based on where I have been as opposed to many people on FindAGrave who look up lists, etc. and post without researching.

2. Mussleman's book of Stafford Cemeteries lists Henry as in W.O. Primitive Church Cemetery as I've done; thus, this is a verification, too.

I'll triple-check next time I'm at the White Oak Museum.

RE: Uk Whitson, nee Mary Fletcher?
You know, I really didn't look that hard at the stone itself. While it doesn't fit in my husband's family, I, like you, would sure like to know the baby's family. It seems so lonesome, there by itself. It could be the spelling was how the stone mason thought it should be, and other family could not read/write.

Headstone photo Bertron G Harley
Your request to copy the photo on Bertron G Harley's memorial (#48834027) and add it to his mother's memorial is appropriate (since they share the marker) but the photo is not mine to post, it was posted by contributor John Evans (#47071981). Since the photo is not mine, he would have to post it or give permission to use his photo. I think the appropriate thing to do would be to contact him.
