Bio and Links
Bio Photo Will transfer control of memorials I manage to family members upon request.

As a child I lived in a small hamlet of Norfolk County, VA referenced as 'Julians Creek' in county records. This area was always called Saint Juliens Creek or St Julians Creek. The same name references the Saint Juliens Creek Naval facility, Portsmouth, VA.

The Virginian Pilot published an article titled "What is in a name" in 2010. Here is a quote from that article "More than 25 men and women who carry the name Julien have been beatified by the Vatican. St. Julien the Hospitaller is one explanation. According to legend, St. Julien was misled by an enemy into unwittingly killing his own parents, thus inadvertently fulfilling the prophecy of witches who had cursed the boy on the day of his birth. In an attempt to atone for his sin, Julien built seven hospitals and 25 homes for the poor. St. Julian Sabas the Elder was a fourth century evangelist in the Eastern Roman Empire. Theories speculate the creek was named for William Julien, whose name appears repeatedly in local land records around the area of the creek."

Hey there Sam:
Hope you had a very fine Easter.
I saw your messages to Geri and was wondering if you were able to get in contact with her. I have left numerous "Edit" notes to add dates to memorials, and for name corrections, but have not been able to get one corrected. I think she might have dropped out. I am going to monitor here stats and see if she adds anything.
The "Very Best" to you and yours, Bud
