Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Augusta County, Virginia. I started out with findagrave by listing family surnames that I am researching - Albert, Sites, & Stokes.

The photo is the grave of my Granddad's little brother Lewis. Family members couldn't remember the location of the grave. Then one day while looking at an old photo album with my Grandma, I asked about a photo. Grandma's answer was the clue needed to find the grave. What was lost was found.

If you have the time, please stop by and visit my heroes. They have had a great influence in my life and I miss them very much. My Granddad Albert & Grandma Albert, my Great Grandma Stokes and my 2nd Mom.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Please include findagrave in the email subject line.

I will gladly add information to a memorial, but in doing so, I will link the contributor to the information provided. If you do not wish your findagrave name to be linked to the information, please do not provide it. I will not add information without the source of that information.

Find A Grave Memorial# 11835997
Hello Mike
I somehow doubt the parentage of him.
His surposed mother Etta Linkous died 1927 and the surposed father Willie (Bill) J Sheppard (1917 - 2005) was married to Dolly Mae Fain Sheppard (1924 - 2006).

I am trying to figure out which of the above 2 cemeteries John Augustine Adams would be buried in. He was killed at the Battle of Malvern Hill on July 1, 1862. He was with Co F 24th Regiment from Gwinnett Co. Ga
THANKS for any help!

Hi, I would love to add this headstone photo and any others related to my family tree on with the photo credit to you of course. Please let me know if you object to this or to let me know how you would prefer the photo credit worded. If I do not hear from you , I will assume it is okay to use it. Thanks so much.

Rose Lawn Cemetery
Thanks you so much for the photo take of the cemetery, I have visited the cemetery and saw my brother-in-law grave. Some of his brothers haven't been in good health and haven't been able to travel to the cemetery to visit William M. "Bill" Wood grave and this give them an opportunity to see the cemetery where he is buried, but not his plaque, do you think we could get a picture of it for them to see. Thank You.

Mike, I don't see in your bio if you allow your photos to be downloaded to use in a family tree. One of which would be on Ancestry. The photo on Find A Grave Memorial# 13231286 is a wonderful photo and I would like to download it. Thank you for all you do to help others. Pat

Minnie Bell Lawhorn
Hi! I noticed that you added some things to Houston J. Lawhorn's memorial. Are you related to this family?

If so, would you happen to know anything about Mr. Lawhorn's mother, Minnie Belle (Fitzgerald) Lawhorn's first marriage? She married a Campbell, but he passed away not long after they were married.

Any help that you can give me is appreciated. I am doing research for a friend, and neither of us live in the area.

Oak Hill Baptist Church cemetery
Hi Mike,
The picture of the cemetery that you placed on Oak Hill Memorial Garden cemetery in Massies Mill, belongs instead with the Oak Hill Baptist Church cemetery in Old Myndus, Nelson County, VA. It is a good picture with a good description of the location. As verification, please check a couple of the names in the picture with the cemetery list.

Thanks for all you do.
