NEIL ARMSTRONG

"Geologists have a saying: rocks remember."

1930 ~ 2012


For his final task on the Moon,
Neil left a small package filled with items memorializing previously deceased pioneers in space exploration, including Soviet cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, and Apollo 1 astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee.

Now it's Neil's turn, and our turn to memorialize him.

His family released the following statement:


"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

Sharing and correcting information
I am the great Granddaughter of Eva Doyle Virgil who is buried in the Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City, Nevada. Some of the information listed in the Find a Grave memorial for her is not correct. I would love to get it corrected. Please contact me at egremmert@comcast.net Thank you very much.

cousins?
Hi Laura, I saw your notes on Garfield and Lou Duggers memorials. Garfield was a distant cousin. Are you related on the Dugger side or the Stovall side?

William B. Stovall
Hi Laura,

Are you any relation to Louise Stovall of Texas?

The reason I ask is that Louise Stovall of Quinlan, Texas has/had a copy of her great-grandfather's marriage license. His name was William B. Stovall. My great-great grandfather was William B. Stovall and he, too, was supposed to be buried in the cemetery at Sumpter, AR. There is no record of him or his daughter, Amanda.

When I saw this notation for Iva, I wondered if there could be any relation. I would love to hear from you. Please let me know.

BJ

Virgil Family
More Virgil Family? My Great-Grandfather Frank Virgil came from Fabius, New York to Michigan in the 1870's. Growing up we only knew of our Michigan Family; now that I'm researching our family roots I'm learning of more and more Virgil Family. Where do you connect with the family? I look forward to hearing back from you. Claudia

Jodie W. Stovall Davis #113274921
Hi Lara,

Jodie Stovall Davis was my maternal great-grandmother. We called her "Little Mama" because she was so tiny. I was 15 when she died, so I remember her well.

I have not been able to find anything about her before she married Houston Davis, and I would love to know more about her people. Anything you could tell me would be greatly appreciated.
