Those we love don't go away ~ They walk beside us everyday ~ Unseen, unheard , But always near ~ Still loved, still missed and very dear *
"It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." ~ Harry S Truman

Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (rev 21:4)
"Dear Ancestor Your tombstone stands among the rest; Neglected and alone. The name and the date are chiseled out On polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who cares It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you." -Poem by Walter Butler Palmer
A LIMB HAS FALLEN
A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don't worry about falls I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we're together again. - Author Unknown
Brownell's in Auburn Hi, We added Sarah (if that was your request ) can't find the others, book at library says they are unmarked. But we did find in another section Archie and Pauline Brownell. He was born 1902 and died 1973, she was born 1908 and died 1984. Best Wishes, Connie and Wayne Clark
RE: one more message Hi Barbara, I sent a lengthy email to the address on your profile here. The gravegarden page and Diuguid records are wonderful resources that I use often. They both are very useful in the current project I am involved with in canvassing Old City. The Diuguid records are priceless in helping identify the graves of all 2,200+ men in the Confederate section.
RE: # 160342658 I think North Garden Depot is a place in Virginia. Many of the men who died in Lynchburg were sent home for burial. Some were dug up later and sent home. There are two men in the Confederate section who's bodies were stored in coal as their families wanted them sent home. Eventually, they were laid to rest in the Confederate section as their families never showed up or paid to have them sent home.
C Houchin and GP Weatherman Hi again Barbara, if these two soldiers died of small pox, then they are resting in what is now known as Yankee Square in unmarked graves in the Confederate section of Old City.
