RE: Benjamin Skinner Roberson
I assume that my source was a history of the Orange Arty. His widow filed for a pension but it is kind of jumbled. Suggest you post question on VIRGINIA IN THE CIVIL WAR MESSAGE BOARD.

No problem! She's a 2nd great grandaunt of mine. I had her maiden name correct in my family tree. I don't know how I got it wrong here. Thanks for pointing it out.

RE: Sister of Alice Pedigo Ross
No, according to the death certificate, Dora Pedigo Snapp is buried in Mt. View in Vinton, VA. I also have the obit. that states burial at Mt. View Vinton. Dora's father (Charles L. Pedigo), died in 1910 and is buried there but his wife, Sarah Amanda Pedigo was still living when her daughter, Dora, died in 1919. I'm surprised that Dora is not buried in the same section.

Also, I found a list partially copied by Glenna Garnand Garner that lists Dora being buried there. I think she compiled it for USGenWeb Archives. I have not had a response from her.

It would be so helpful to have a Pedigo or a Snapp from Vinton who might have this information in a Bible, etc. I would have no idea who to contact except Barbara Pedigo Dillon (and I have to contact her through the Mt. View office. I think she is getting up in age so I can certainly understand). I'm getting there, too!

Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

Sister of Alice Pedigo Ross
Hello Beelady,

I am a granddaughter of Alice Pedigo Ross' sister, Dora May Pedigo Snapp. I am looking for anyone who could help me find her grave. I have her death certificate which says that she was to be buried at Mt. View Cemetery in Vinton, VA, but they have no record that she was buried there.

It was my mother's wish before she died that if my sister and I could find her grave, she wanted us to put in a gravestone. My mother was only five years old when her mother died but was told through the years that her mother was buried at Mt. View. My mother's father was Ernest (or Earnest) Lynwood Snapp. He remarried after Dora's death.

As my sister and I are getting up in age, it would be satisfying to know that we were able to do this for our mother, Mary Elizabeth Snapp Weaver. Possibly someone in the Pedigo family would have this information. I would appreciate any leads you could give me.

RE: Stoessner family
Thank you for your response. I have the Stoessner family in my grandson's family tree through the marriage of Marie Kleinhenz to Ernest T. Stoessner on 22 June 1904 at Cleveland, OH. The Kleinhenz family descend directly to him through his mother Rose Marie Zehe. I offered the material so other archivists could see how these families interrelate, but it is your choice to make.

Elizabeth H. "Bettie" Faulkner
Capt. Andrew Murray Lybrook, Esq. was her consort and she did end up marrying him. Is it possible that she is buried in the Stuart Cem, Stuart, Patrick Co., VA under the name of Elizabeth Faulkner and/or Fortner and or Forkner? Capt. Andrew Lybrook is buried in the Stuart Cem.

I truly appreciate your efforts. According to FindAGrave, she is buried in the above cemetery, but maybe there is no tombstone.

Thank you.

Bishop Cassady memorial
Merry Christmas!

I would like to reference the information on the tombstone for Bishop Cassady (1897-1921) in a family history book. Can you please write me at with the above subject line? I'd like to be able to give appropriate credit in the book. I'm not looking to use the photo, just the information on the tombstone.

May I use your photos on Ancestry and give credit to you for the photo? If I may use them, how do you want to be credited? Do I need to ask each time I use one of your photos?
