Bio Photo 7/29/2015: Getting real tired of the pop up advertising on this site. Some of it is very inappropriate. I wish the owners of this site would show some courtesy and consideration for all of the volunteers who do so much work for free and allow us to opt out of having these pop up ads keep showing up while we are working here for free!

My work on the Confederate section of Old City Cemetery is my primary goal at this time. This is a labor of love and I will not stop til it is complete. If you take photos in the Confederate section to post a memorial here, please check, double check and triple check before posting. There are a lot of errors in the records and a number of the stones are incorrectly marked. I will be posting memorials for soldiers in the Confederate section based on how their names are written down in the Diuguid records as those records seem to be the first place most people turn to for identifying a soldier. I will also post the correct name of any soldier based on unit records or any other information you may pass on to me with the correct spelling of a soldier's name. A HUGE thank you goes out to find-a-grave member LJH for all of the help in correctly identifying the men!

I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

RE: Elgin and Ethel Breeden
Thank you for your message and for adding photographs to their memorials; they are beautiful! Thanks also for catching my error; his name is indeed Elvin, not Elgin. No need to transfer the memorial of Elvin Jr, Iíll just send you a few edits through the automated system. May I have permission to include copies of your gravestone photos in my family tree at Ancestry? Iíll give you credit as the photographer.

RE: Hubert Andrew Hardy
Darrell - Surprises sometimes come in small packages. The photo for Hubert Hardy's headstone, the second name was Sarah. Well, that is not the name I was expecting to see. Hubert Andrew Hardy married Daisy Brown in 1910 in North Carolina. There were 6 children born between 1911 & 1924. Sometime after 1924, Hubert disappeared. The 1930&1940 NC Census shows Daisy as a widow.

After 1930, there is no WWII registration or any census record for 1930 & 1940 in Virginia for him. Could have possibly registered under another name.

However, the Death Records in Virginia for Hubert A. Hardy, does list all of the correct information for him location of birth, date of birth and correct parents.

Thought you might enjoy reading a so called "Mystery Story" that was solved.

Best Regards, Pat
