Andrea D Moorehead
Echols Family
Cassandra,

My name is Andrea Echols Moorehead. My great-great grandfather was Robert Nathaniel Echols. My great-grandfather was Samuel Clifford Echols. Could there be any way we are related? I am researching the Echols Family Tree.

You can reach me amoorehead@frontier.com

Thanks,

Andrea

Definitely August 21, 1978 by the Southwest Times. Obit was in August 22, 1978 issue. May want to make a note concerning that date.

And you are welcome
Connie

RE: Jonathan D.
Nice to meet you, Cassandra. If you will search for Mary Hutchison Grogan Coleman on Find A Grave you can read the family history. Mary married Robert Spillsby Coleman in Calloway Co., Kentucky. Their daughter Emily Rebecca Coleman married William A. Heathcott. Their son William A. Heathcott Jr. married Sarah E. Jordan. Their daughter Verna M. Heathcott married Orland C. Davis. Their daughter Marie M. Davis married my father.

Please also give me your lineage. I too like to know my family. Look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Albert, Troy D.
If you're talking about Kimberly "buried" next to Troy Dale Albert Jr, I never said she was "buried", I said her name is "on the same stone". Sometimes it helps people to put the deceased in context with their relatives when they have the names of the spouses. If I had thought she was buried, I would have made her a memorial.

Electra Mooney is my husband's GGGG Grandmother. I noticed she's related to you as well. Would you happen to have a picture you could share? I am just starting to research this line. We are related to Laura Amelia Roseberry - Electra's Mother.

Thanks,

KALM
Jane Bryson In Larew Cemetery Dublin, Pulaski Co. VA
Just had a question as to the dates shown for Jane Bryson given in the memorial for her. For Birth it's showing March 9, 1805, could it be March 9, 1791? This site shows the 1791 date
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vapulask/cemeteries/cemetery30larew.htm
And she is showing up on the 1850 census as 60 and on the 1860 census at 69 which would indicate a 1790 or 1791 time frame.

Also the rootsweb site is showing a different death date. It shows Feb 29 1869, which isn't correct as 1869 wasn't a leap year. You have July 25 1867 which is the same date as given for James Bryson on this list for Larew Cemetery.

Thanks for any help you can give me on getting the Bryson dates.

Per your photo request John Barnette
I have located the gravestone for John (your request Oct 2010)and it is next to his parents. It is hand-chisled and extremely difficult to read. I have requested a marker transcription for it to be added to the memorial. It is to the best of my ability to read. While attending a funeral there this week, I ran into the caretaker. I told him who this was and after determing the grave belonged to someone who died in 1972 (it looks much older) he realized he knew John. They went to church together. He remembers him as being the only person he knew who sang the song "Here Comes the Black Train" or something like that. Since he knew John he said he would try to make the stone more readable. I probably won't get back there until spring- I could also try tracing it.

RE: Glendy Family
I don't think that is the correct Mary Glendy, this one was born in 1791 in Ireland and died in Augusta County in 1853. There is a findagrave.com page for her, it says she was about 62. Find A Grave Memorial# 62315629

She was the daughter of the William Glendy I requested, he died, I think, in 1826. I assume since he lived there his grave is in the same place, but it may be lost to time, or unable to be read.


William Glendy
Birth 1767 in Ulster, Ireland
Death Living
Death 15 Aug 1826 in Augusta, Virginia, United States

Mary Glendy
Birth 1791 in Ireland
Death Living
Death 25 Nov 1853 in Newbern, Pulaski, Virginia, United States

She was by his first wife, who died when they were still in Ireland.

The second wife is Ann/ Anna Robinson Glendy who you so kindly posted a picture of her grave earlier.

There were 6 brothers, 2 left and moved to central Missouri, and I took the pictures of their graves, and I have made findagrave.com pages for them.

I found one brother in Augusta County with a findagrave.com page, but I am still trying to find pictures of the other 3 brothers, and the half sister Mary who died in 1853.

John Glendy
1800 1857
David Glendy
1802 1880
Samuel Glendy (have grave picture)
1804 1879
Thomas Marshal Glendy (have grave picture)
1806 1884
William Glendy
1807 1890
Robert James Glendy (have grave picture)
1814 1889


Thanks again so much!!

Can you tell me, I am trying to plan a trip out there to try to research more abou the Glendy and Shields families. How far is Augusta County, approximaetly, from the DC area? I usually fly in to Dulles when I go to DC. Also, do you happen to know anything at all about a historical society/ genealolgy society in Augusta County. Some places it is the library, others I have found have a stand alone historical society.

Thanks again SO much for ALL of your help!!

RE: Re: Glendy Family
Thank you SO much for continuing to add more of my Glendy ancestors grave pictures!!!! I have been working on the women with their married names and it appears almost every grave in that cemetery is related, at least by marriage.

Since I think you already have photographed every grave, is there one for William Glendy, husband to the grave picture you took earlier for me of Anna Robinson Glendy, or his sister Mary Glendy (she died in 1853)?

I am now starting to work on researching my other ancestors from there, the wife of Thomas Glendy, her name was Elenor Shields Glendy. She and her sister Sallie/ Sarah Shields Glendy left Augusta County, Virginia and moved with their husbands Thomas and Samuel Glendy, to central Missouri, somewhere in the late 1810's early 1820's. Thomas and Elenor were actually not married until they were in Missouri, but so far I can't find the other sister/ brother marriage, so I think maybe it occurred before they left Virginia.

I am trying to find who their father was, someone Shields. I have found many Shields families from Augusta County.

Thanks again and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Lisa :-)

RE: Also...
Hi, Again: Yup, I see my mistake. I was on the wrong road. OK, I'm now looking at the satellite photo of the area on Google Map. I've found Newbern Heights Drive, but I can't see anything that resembles a cemetery. Let's assume Newbern Heights Drive is an east-west street. Bisecting it in the middle appears to be a north-south lane called Bridle. Is the cemetery to the left (west) of Bridle, or right (east)? You said it was on the left side of Newbern Heights. Would that make it south? Can you give me a further landmark, like how many houses away from the corner of Bridle? Like I said, I'm not sure I'll every drive around that area again, so I have to rely on others. I hope I am not being a pest over this.

RE: Larew Cemetery
Thank you for the detailed directions. I was looking along Larew Road (or something like that) which does a complete loop EAST of the 81 Freeway. Your note says I should have been WEST of it. Ah well, I'll look for it the next time I'm in Virginia. That might not be for a long time, though, as I live in California.

Larew Cemetery
Hi, The Larew family is obliquely related to me. Cyrus Guy Larew was the first husband of my grandmother, Muriel Evans, who later married my grandfather, Lucien M. Doty (both from Portsmouth, Ohio). Muriel and Guy had one daughter, Gladys Larew (married Jim Lindsey), who was my aunt. In 2010, as we passed through Pulaski County on a cross-country trip, my wife and I tried to locate the Larew Cemetery, but alas could not find it. A mortuary had given me the approximate location, "Near intersection of Old Route 100 and Newbern Road." Since you photographed grave markers there after I visited, can you tell me exactly where it is? All I could find were homes on a very windy road.
