Proper Citation
Hello, I am teaching my granddaughter about genealogy and I can't find the proper way to cite your information from Find-A-Grave. Could you help us with this?

Thank you for your time,
Terri & Courtney

You are going to love the publication "Joseph Gravely of Leatherwood." Have you ordered a copy yet? Let me know when you receive your copy. Very handy!

RE: aunt Edie
Hi there!
I teach online courses and I have a class that begins tomorrow so I am setting up for the class today. I wanted to let you know that in case I do not get back to you in a timely manner.
I think you have told me about Aunt Edie before. Wasn't the the young lady who Patsy Dyer Gravely (?) taught to cook, who became an excellent cook, and who cooked for that Gravely family for many years?
I will look for the article you mentioned later today. I have not even stopped for lunch yet, but I will soon.

Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- )
According to "Joseph Gravely of Leatherwood," Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- ) was a son of Willis Gravely. Joe, as he was called, was married three times: 1) Francis McCabe (1842-1864), 2) Anne Eliza Griggs (1848-Abt 1889 or 1880), and 3) Miss Hendricks.

William Armistead Gravely, Sr. (1837-1862)

Me thinkest this, but I am not at my house at the moment so I can not do a look-up. I hope everything is correct.

Willis Gravely and Ann Nancy Marshall (Barrow) Gravely had several children. Among their children were William Armistead Gravely (1837-1862) and Joseph Henry Harrison Gravely (18401920). William Armistead Gravely, Jr. (1862- ) was the son of William Armistead Gravely, Sr. (1837-1862).
William Armistead Gravely, Jr. (1862- ) wrote this holiday postcard greeting to his Uncle Joseph "Joe" Henry Harrison Gravely (1841- ).

How are you all this Christmas? Wish I could see you all. Will try to do so later. I have been very busy and have not had time to go anywhere. Wish you all could come over [?] to see us. Wishing you many returns of Christmas.
I am your nephew.
W. A. Gravely

Please see if I have transcribed you postcard correctly.

It is postmarked Dec 27, Danville, VA. I do not see a year which would have been helpful in identifying both the sender of the postcard as well as his uncle. It looks as if it might say "19--" but I am not sure.

Either way is fine! So thrilled! Thank you again!

Did I read correctly? A transfer to me. I would appreciate that more that I can express. Thank you in advance. I do not know if I ever told you this, but I am twice descended from Joseph Gravely, first through Joseph's oldest son Jabez Gravely and second through Joseph's youngest son Willis Gravely. My grandparents were fourth (?) cousins. Having a double dose of Gravely genes is a good thing. Right?

Photos of Willis Gravely
Hi there! I posted a couple of photos of Willis Gravely for you. I wasn't sure which one you would like best so I posted both. The one with the white "matting" is the original. The other one was restored a little by James Hankins. Leave one or the other or both. I hope you enjoy the photos. ~ SallyP

I would suggest sending an edit to Randy Shepard to link Virginia to Samuel & Geneva, he is real good about doing that. I used to know Virginia's brother in law Raymond Carter real well, I used to fool around race cars all the time until about 2000, just kind of got away from it

RE: henry dupuy reamey and elsie gravely reamey
Hi Rebecca, I have deleted my memorial for Elsie and will transfer her husband over to your care as they are your family. I don't know where all of the family connections came from on Henry's memorial, but did not want to delete his memorial. The photo you have of Elsie's grave is so much better than the one I have on Henry's. Maybe use that on his memorial as well?

Best regards,
Darrell Landrum
Lynchburg, Virginia

Yes. But haven't taken the time to compare and do updates on my tree. Thanks for reminding me. I get 10-20 messages a day concerning Find a Grave.
Also, right now I am updating the burial list for the cemetery where most of our immediate family are buried (about 800 people).

I don't mind at all; I'm very flattered. Take what you like. He and Nancy led fascinating lives and have a lot of descendants who might be interested in hearing about them. Bev

His name is Spotswood Franklin Gravely. I haven't found his or his father's grave. His daughter Elsie is buried in Danville with her husband Henry D. Reamey.

RE: Thomas helms
I will do that for you, but I read the obit and it ran on and on and on with a lot of worthless info, I just do not like stuff like that, also it takes a lot of unnecessary space on the memorial

Rebecca, I won't put that obit on there, I hate them damn long drawn out things that people put on f-a-g. If you wish, I will shorten it to just vital stuff, be glad to do that for you. On all new obits, I delete all personal addresses, such things as charities, visitation, any relatives below children, in-lawa, outlaws, etc, every little minor detail that a person has did in life, I just add vital info, it is your call, Larry
