Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband says I spend too much time in graveyards, doing genealogy and on the computer. Maybe he's right.
My favorite cemeteries are Mount Hebron in Winchester, Virginia, and Rock Creek in Washington, D. C.

- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.

- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.

- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs.  Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.

Peter Lenhart #19645355
Thank you for such a beautiful memorial page for Peter Lenhart, my sixth great-grandfather. I have been looking diligently for record of his military service. I noticed the service medallion attached to the flag in the front of the picture. Would you have a picture of the medallion? Do you suppose there is a reference number on that medallion?

I would appreciate any help you could give me.
Thanks, Jean

Inquiry re Charles Broadwater & Family
Hello Audrey,

Thanks so much for providing me with the address of the Broadwater Cemetery. I had contacted Ray who maintains the memorial pages for those interred in the cemetery, and he also provided me with the address. I see that he now has posted the address on each of the Find A Grave pages.

You and my husband share the same ancestors. Col. Charles Broadwater Jr. & Ann Amelia Markham are my husband's 6 Great Grandparents. Their son, Lt. Charles Lewis Broadwater who married Betheland Sebastian, are my husband's 6th Great Grandparents.

I wonder just how many Broadwater descendents are alive today? I bet it's a bunch!!!

Thanks so much for the information. Have a great day!

Inquire re Charles Browdwater & Family
Hi Audrey,

Thanks so much for posting the pictures of the Charles Broadwater Cemetery, and the news article re Charles Broadwater's death.

The Broadwater's are my husbands ancestors, and we would like to visit the cemetery on an upcoming visit to Virginia. I was just wondering if you had an exact address for the burial site, and if you had any other information on this family that you can share with us?

Thank you for all that you do for the Find A Grave family!

DARR family of Fairfax Co., VA
Do you have any information on Edna DARR MORRISON who was the daughter of George Wilson DARR and the sister of Robert Earl DARR? She was married to my husband's uncle (Ernest Samuel MORRISON). The last record of her was the 1930 census. I am seeking information on her and their son James. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Janet McKenney

After looking at your library of memorials I understand why you denied my request.

I just want you to know I am sorry and it will not happen again.

We all do things differently and it's good to keep things the same so since the rest do not have punctuation it's best none of them do.

Again, I am sorry.
