Would you consider transferring the Tavenner's in the East End Cemetery in Wytheville Virginia to me? They are my grandfather's family. If not all of them would you consider Jessie Wilmer Tavenner and Sallie Cassell Tavenner? Those were his parents. Thank you, Hopeful

Thank you
Just wanted to say thanks for all of the memorials that you have created (and photographed) for family members at New Salem Baptist Church Cemetery. They have been very helpful in my research! RC

Would you please verify the date on the headstone for John Edwards? It looks as if it is 1880.

Thank you,

Leicester Baptist Cemetery
I notice that you have been to this cemetery and taken a picture. Can you tell me if there might be more burials than the 13 listed? I have a long list of African-Americans who are supposedly in Leicester Cemetery - with no note as to whether this is the Baptist, Episcopal or United Methodist one.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!

# 72043624- Lysander Campbell
Could you please elaborate on the centograph stone associated with Lysander Campbell's family at Rich Valley Presbyterian? Are the names and dates shown on the stone or elsewhere? I visited Rich Valley many years ago but did not know of the burials. Thank you so much for the information!

Lysander Campbell's wife was Emily Jane (Bradley) Campbell, sister of my great great grandfather Joseph Colville Bradley, who was born in Washington Co, VA, about 1810 and died in Huntsville, Madison Co, AL. Emily probably died in or shortly after birth of their last son Andrew Campbell in 1853. Their children were farmed out to the families of Emily's brother Joseph Colville Bradley and sister Mary C (Bradley) Tate. Joseph, Mary, and Emily were children of James Bradley and his second wife Jennie (Colville) Hays Bradley.

Is there a record of Emily's death on the centograph or with other known records? Many thanks for you help.

Harvey Blevins #81535445
I have submitted a change of birth. There is a delayed birth certificate dated Nov 9, 1948 signed by Harvey Blevins and his uncle Baker D. Hughes in which they presented a family bible to the vital records office with the correct date of birth as March 15, 1884 in Smyth County, Virginia.

If possible I would like to transfer this find a grave account in to my care. Harvey is my great-uncle.

Thank you very much.

I cannot believe that has taken me this long to thank you for the photos of Eliza Goodman's headstone, but I am really grateful.
