|Bio and Links|
I am a native Virginian who has been interested in family history since I was a young college student back in the late 1960s. Mostly, I have worked on my mother's side of the family off and on over the years - which involves the surnames Croushorn (Kraushaar), Lambert, Switzer, Swartz and others. |
My father's family (Heflin) is so numerous it's not really been possible for me to make much progress in it when I have worked on it; however, I know some things about it and associated names such as Kane and Kearnes (Kerns).
I am not really a researcher. I come here to write up what I know about family members who have passed on and to post some pictures if available. I also enjoy posting memorial flowers at the surnames of those with the above last names and have done so in all states for some and a few states for others. Please do not write to me expecting to get a lot of information because I don't have a lot. I am not a researcher or amateur genealogist really; I've just dabbled in it over the years.
As for transfers, there are just a few of the persons' graves I manage that I would consider transferring because most are such close relatives. A few I have done for others mainly in case someone wants to take them over later.
Thanks. Marylin Rumph (M. Faith Heflin Rumph)

Would you happen to have portraits of any of the Heflins buried here at Monocacy Cemetery? If so, could you please contact me at email@example.com?

Hi! I found this obituary and thought you might want to see it. I am not related though. Pat
Departed this life on the 4th inst., at her home in Scott county, Va., Miss CATHARINE KANE, after a painful and protracted illness of several months, which she bore with christian-like fortitude till she fell asleep in the arms of Jesus. She was a pious member of the M. Episcopal Church, and was much concerned during her illness, with regard to her soul's salvation and her future existence. Her whole soul, mind and strength were deeply engaged for several months before her death, in fervent prayer to God and singing and praising h is name. But a very few moments before she breathed her last, she attempted to sing a hymn, and died shouting and praising the Lord --- exhorting her two brothers and neighbors who stood by her dying bed to serve the Lord and meet her in Heaven, where parting, sickness, sorrow and death are seen nor felt no more.
Thus has passed away from our midst an affectionate sister, a worthy and kind neighbor, and a true christian. May God in his wisdom and mercy give strength and comfort to her much distressed and afflicted brothers in their desolate and lonely condition in this trying hour of distress, and may each of them obey her solemn and dying request to "serve the Lord and meet her in Heaven." C. W.
The Abingdon Virginian., Friday, July 24, 1863

|Diane Dowling||RE: Elliott T Heflin|
Thanks for your reply!
|Diane Dowling||Elliott T Heflin|
Do you know any information about Elliott and his wife Sadie? I think the son they had named Garland might be a relative of mine. Please let me know if you have any info. Thanks. Diane Heflin Dowling from Wisconsin
I was wondering what connection you have to the Swartz name. My husband is a Swartz and I'm beginning to think they lived in caves where no one could find them! I'm fairly certain that Watson was a brother to my husband's gr grandfather John Wesley. If you have any info, I would dearly love it! Thanks, Sharon Swartz

I saw your flower on Arlue Heflin's memorial and was hoping you could provide information on the burial site of his mother, Maudie B. Reeves (1890-1983). She was a sister of my grandfather Hiram M. Reeves (1879-1963) and was living in Colusa County, California, with her second husband Jabes C. Weaver (1893-1978), until her death.
My profile picture is of my sister and I sitting on our grandfather's knees in Newton County, Mississippi.
Thank you for responding so quickly. I really enjoy hearing from people who actually knew the people whose names I'm working with. You mentioned your mother - who is she?

You need to link Sadie & her husband Henry Ashby Byers to the son who rest near them - William H. Byers William H. Byers "son of H.A. & S. C. Byers" born 26 Feb 1920, died 22 Aug 1925.
Thank you for all your diligent work. Without it my organizing of some of the Augusta County Byers would be sadly lacking.
