Bio and Links
Bio Photo This photo was taken in 1968 as a high school student working on a tiny graveyard restoration project. My family genealogy has been an intense 14+ year study and has led me back to circa 1755 London. Many folks have been kind enough to assist me in the tedious but rewarding research project. Contributing to Find-A-Grave is my way of giving back and paying forward.

I believe that a memorial belongs with the family and loved ones to cherish and maintain. My mission is to be cooperative with others doing research and I am more than willing to transfer memorials I have created.
*** When photographing a memorial, I do not alter it's condition. I take them as I find them!

"I think most people can do a whole awful lot more if they just try, ... They just don't have the confidence that they can write a novel or they can write poetry or they can take pictures or paint or whatever, and so they don't do it, and they leave the planet dissatisfied with themselves."
quote from Gordon A. Parks, Sr. 1912-2006

I thank you for your message about the duplication. I have entered a request at Find A Grave to have the three cemetery listings merged.

RE: Jacob and Mary Hanks
That is chalk used to clearly see the writing on the stones. Otherwise, the stones are so old you would not be able to read them. The chalk has already washed off; it usually does with the first good rain.

RE: The other Ward Cemetery
Thanks so much Louise. My wife & I are planning to go to our known Ward/Jeter cemetery (near Rehoboth) sometime this fall to clean it up and cut the underbrush. While in the area we'll see what we can find. I also will see if I can find the cemetery you describe using Google Earth or Skyview. I've used that before and sometimes it really helps. I really appreciate you following up on this.

RE: E.A. Morriss
In Virginia, and much of the south in the 1870's there was little money to go around, due to the war and a financial downturn. There-fore it is not unusual for Graves in that time to have no headstone

RE: Lawrence Monks
I'm sorry, Louise, but there were no other markers that I could find. As you can see, his stone was not in very good shape, and in the section there were quite a few that were not readable. However, there was no unreadable or damaged marker near his grave.

Charles Jackson
I am interested, because my daddy was Alex Jackson, referred to as Junior. I am wondering is this my daddy's brother Charles. There mother was Ida Bunnel Jackson and his daddy was Alexander Bert Jackson, sometimes spelled Elex.

Can you give me any information about Charles Jackson in Jackson Family Cemetery, Meherria, Virginia. It is located on SR 683 in Luneburg County.

RE: William Henry Ward

I had time this evening to research a bit the B.E.Ward in the cemetery. If this were in my line he would be my gggrandfather. My research using census and family information shows my Benjamin E. to have been born in 1831 and died in 1877. He was married to Lucienda Bacon Crenshaw in 1853. The death date listed in the Ontario cemetery shows his death to be in 1904 which is quite a difference. But interesting that his wife name is similar. So the mystery grows. I can't help but wonder about the cemetery. Could you possibly provide directions? Thanks so much, Don Ward
