Hi...I left an edit to add her parents.

I took a picture request for her and added the family monument, but there wasn't an individual marker...

Thanks Rose

Jackie Williams
Amanda Roop
This person is my 2nd great grandmother. For some unknown reason, picked up from the 1860 census the name of a farm laborer as the husband of Amanda. She was listed as a widow on the census, she was the wife of the late Jesse Toney, therefore her name is and always will be Amanda Jarrell Toney. I have her birth year as 1815, the day of death is correct. Jesse Toney died in 1857.

RE: Chester Washington Arnold, Jr
Both are by the same mother. Chester's second wife was Grace Dunford. They had two sons. One son was Luther Bennett Arnold 1938-1998.

Grace was married first to Jasper McKinnley Arnold (born 1883) They had at least 7 children

RE: Chester Washington Arnold, Jr
She is buried in the Aker Cemetery in Piney with out a headstone. Chester only had 2 children with Gracie Dunford. Do you find it strange that he named 2 children the same. I sure did when I started researching.

If you are interested I will tell you what the family told me. Chester was the grandfather of my
ex husband.

Melissa Boyd
Maude Ellen Underwood
Hello my name is Melissa Boyd and I think that Memorial # 60377212 is linked to the wrong person. You have her as a child of Martha Howell. Martha Howell is my great grandmother who had three daughters and Maude was not one of them. If you do not have proof please take this off. She is the 2nd wife of my great grandfather.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

RE: Virginia Bradshaw Willey
Hi Connie,

To answer your question, there were no other burials on the Willey lot except for Virginia (at least none that were marked.)

On the reverse side of the Willey monument, the Copley family is buried, which includes James W., Weldon B, Barbara F and Louise Bradshaw Copley. I am guessing that Louise and Virginia were sisters, as both of them only had the year of death listed. All others have their full dates.

I have photos which I will post after the holiday.

Dora Cemetery
Hi there. I was wondering if you knew of a resource that could list all people buried up there at Dora hwy Cemetery? I saw some pictures online and was pretty horrified by the condition of the cemetery and am pretty certain that my grandfather's headstone is probably not there. I was told by two relatives (now deceased) that this is where he was buried but I do not see him anywhere on the list at FindaGrave. His name is Walter J. Anderson and he died young in the mid 1940's. His two very young sons are buried in Ray Cemetery (Walter Jr. and Rexie D.)
Thanks in advance if you can help. I truly appreciate all you are doing.

Virginia Bradshaw Willey

I just fulfilled your photo request for Virginia Bradshaw Willey in Oakwood Cemetery, South Hill VA.
You included a note that you wanted to find the dates for this individual; unfortunately the monument only lists her year of death. I went to the city records to see if I could get anything to help you, but they refused to give me any information because I was not related to the deceased. From time to time we all find roadblocks to our research. Sorry I could not be of more help.
