Bio and Links
Bio Photo I currently live in Virginia with my husband and children. Genealogy has been one of my hobbies since 1993. I enjoy researching whether it is for my own famly or for others. Most of my memorials have no relationship to me. I hope posting these online is of help to others searching for their families. If you find errors on any of my entries please let me know, and I will be glad to fix them. I believe in reuniting family, so if you find your family memorial that I've entered and would like ownership, contact me know so I can turn it over to you.

A special thank you to all the photo volunteers that have taken pictures of my family and uploaded them for me.

A CEMETERY EXISTS BECAUSE EVERY LIFE IS WORTH LOVING AND REMEMBERING. IT IS A SUSTAINING SOURCE OF COMFORT FOR THE LIVING.

PRESERVING HISTORY AND BEAUTIFYING
ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC CEMETERY
PORTSMOUTH, VA

I'm currently working on memorials for this cemetery which is a work-in-progress. On the Find a Grave page it states that 68% of the photos have been taken. However, my brother-in-law, Johnny and I have photographed the entire cemetery and there are many headstones that are either missing or unable to read due to age. Numerous headstone tablets have fallen off their bases, and footstones are broken or crooked. A large number of graves are very old. Even though the preservation of headstones rely on family, many of the deceased have no surviving family members and/or have moved away and cannot care for landscaping or markers.

I'm constantly updating this cemetery. If you see any errors or would like to add new information, I would love to hear from you.

In the near future, we're hoping to locate all veterans at this cemetery and place small U.S. flags on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. So far, we have located 200+ veterans, but we think there are many more buried here.

Also, note that if you plan a day visit to All Saints, there are hardly any shade trees so bring plenty of water. Unfortunately, the lots and sections are no longer marked. Until a map of the cemetery is done, you probably will have to walk around to find your loved one. A word of caution - the ground is not level so be careful where you step.

RE: Mary Gertrude Blake McAllister
You may want to transcribe it to the bio section. Findagrave frowns on putting them in the photo section. click on it for publication and date.

After you transcribe it, you can still leave it there or let me know the Find A Grave id number and I'll delete it.

Good luck with your research, and let me know where I can help in Chester County,

Sollitto headstone
Hi. I went to St. Charles Cemetery today and located the headstone for this person. However, it has sunken way into the ground and you cannot read the names or dates on the headstone. On top of that, when I got home I saw that I have a watermark in the middle of the photo I did take. If you would like me to upload it I still will. On the headstone I could make out the words John and Nicholas by digging away some of the dirt.

I was wondering if you would transfer the care of Pauline Mary Casiello # 16770968 to my care? She is my aunt and I would like to add to her biography and link appropriate family members. Thank you so much!

Thank you! I am trying to reconcile the Find A Grave and VA lists for several of the Veteran's Cemeteries, and it's been an interesting task.

St. Paul's Cemetery Portsmouth Virginia.
Grave Memorial# 74907390.
The grave is listed as no headstone or plot location. Is there anyway I can get further information provided to me? Such as an intermittent card.
Respectfully,
