Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began my genealogy researching after my father mentioned that he wanted to know what happened to one of his aunts on his father's side. He didn't know his father since he passed away in 1935 just after he was born. He didn't know a thing about his grandparents on his father's side either, so my search began. I wanted to locate information, any information that I could gather for him.

After I received marriage and death certificates for some of the relatives, names started fitting into place. I found it interesting and intriguing. The journey has taken so far 3 years and I still have a long way to go.

I am now searching for locations of graves/headstones for many of my relatives so that I can let my father know where they are resting.

I am hoping that this site can help me find the relatives long lost. Maybe some of the family headstones that I add can help others in their search, as well.

Family names include: Thompson, East, Roope, Roop, Rupe, Hudson, Wolfe, Loftis, Lewis, Wilbourne, Wilburn, Wilborn, Nance, White, Bond, and many others.

I am having difficulty in locating graves for many relatives. I know where they passed away but where they are resting is a mystery. Maybe some day they will no longer be mysteries.

Rev John Bedford Daugherty & John Roland Daugherty in the Appalachian Conference Cemetery in Dublin, Pulaski Co., Va both have tombstones taken by you. I would like permission to use these on my family tree on ancestry. Jean

RE: Kadan Chase Vandye Memorial 67424105
Thank you very much , I know the lady who added Roosevelt and have sent her a message.

In years past , Hinkle Cemetery was also known as Vandyke and Hinkle Cemetery and this has caused a mess on adding Vandyke names.

Please remember the four remaining people buried there , are correct and have been verified by family members.
