So Many Ancestors....So Little Time.. I was born in N.C. a long time ago and have lived in VA. for quite some time. I enjoy researching civil war soldiers and their families and live in the Heart of the Confederacy. I enjoy painting with acrylics, especially Old Homeplaces..Beach Scenes..Old Depots, any OLD buildings and such! I have been Following the Periwinkle in Henry County, VA. and surrounding areas for over 25 years and have enjoyed every minute. :O) There are many soldiers in my virtual Confederate Cemetery here on Findagrave. If I can help you with anything, please feel free to ask me. If you want me to transfer a memorial Please Include Your Findagrave # and go to Edit and ask me there. I want to thank all the people that have helped me with my research over the years. Two are Laura Rust and Eugene Landreth who helped my Mom and I when we first started our quest in the 1980s. The "stories" are what make our ancestors on findagrave come alive once more. === To Forget Ones Ancestors Is To Be A Brook Without A Source, A Tree Without A Root..... === Dear Ancestor, YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST NEGLECTED AND ALONE THE NAME AND DATE HAVE WORN OFF THE WEATHERED MARBLE STONE IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE. IT'S NOW TOO LATE TO MOURN YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT I'D EXIST YOU DIED....AND I WAS BORN YET EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU IN FLESH, IN BLOOD, IN BONE. OUR HEARTS CONTRACT AND BEAT A PULSE ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED SOME HUNDRED YEARS AGO SPREADS OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO I WONDER HOW YOU LIVED AND LOVED. I WONDER IF YOU KNEW THAT SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS PLACE AND COME TO VISIT YOU..... Author - Anonymous === Find A Grave gives us an "Unknown" choice for burials or cremations, etc. and if it's a known fact that these people are dead, and they will most likely never be officially linked to any particular burial place, they also have a right to be remembered and to be linked to their other family members. I will gladly link those who have an unknown status. That can easily be changed if they are proved to be in any particular place. They were somebody too, and deserve to be remembered. If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send! If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)
