Hello! I'm Robert (aka "Cenantua"), and I'm a native and resident of the Shenandoah Valley. I've spent a good deal of my life focused on history and the people in it, especially as it relates to my own people in the past. In my eyes, grave hunting and history have always been linked, and it may be that grave hunting actually led me deeper into my quest for expanding my knowledge and understanding of history and the people who played a part in it. I'm an author of twelve history-related books (ten of which relate to some aspect of the American Civil War), and I continue to write about history (focusing mostly on the Shenandoah Valley and western Maryland), but I also find that the Web is a better way of making history come to life than in print publications. I also believe that the same can be said about headstones... and that's why I'm now a contributor to Find-a-Grave. |
Most of my entries or requests for changes of existing memorials in Find-a-Grave relate to my ancestors, relatives, or Civil War era interests.

Can you help me find this Cemetery, either by address, map or GPS ?
Sadie Long Brubaker is in my family Tree
(not closely related) but I would still like to pay respects.
Thanks, Norm Brown

Hi Robert, I posted a photo to your memorial for Edwin and Emily Matthews who are buried here in Presbyterian Cemetery. Was curious if you might know the connection that the gentleman on top of their marker might have with them? I could not find a family connection. Just curious.

Well, that answer got me laughing - that would be my brother Mike Zion. He actually started our ancestry back when he was in junior high school, now almost 60 years old!! I started probably about 20 years ago, got him back into then as well. Thanks for your reply. Tell your wife "Hi!" from her cousins out here in SoCal!
You have a memorial page for my g-grandparents, William Llewellyn & Catherine Mary Thomas Jones (101431094 is one of them). Are you related??? And I'd love to know how you got the information you posted, am hoping you have more definitive answers than I have. I'm still searching to see where they are buried!! Plus you seem to have a photo of my g-grandma that I don't have, would love to know if you have more of my family pics too! If you are related, I can share additional info as well with you.
