Bio and Links
Bio Photo In my short time partaking of this hobby, I find myself spending extra time to clean-up around veterans grave markers. I am an amateur photographer, but am learning some neat tricks to take the best photos I can.
If you have already set-up a memorial here, I hope you do not mind my putting up an extra picture. Early morning and late afternoon sun light seems to add a nice glow to the markers, so I post those pictures as well. If you do not want a picture I have posted on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it. At the same time, if you have posted a memorial that I have taken a photo of, I will make every effort to contact you if there is an error on your memorial. It is our duty as volunteers of find-a-grave to get it right for those who are trying so hard to find their loved ones. I have been working on getting a memorial up for all of the soldiers in the Confederate section of the Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. If you can help in any way with any additional information or corrections, especially with the memorials I have up for those men, please don't hesitate to let me know.

I enjoy doing the footwork to get photo requests fulfilled if you don't mind doing a little bit of paperwork/phonecalls to find out where your loved one is buried in a given cemetery.


Being a military veteran and proud of my heritage, I would not take kindly to seeing anyone do anything to desecrate the American flag. It does amaze me though to see an American flag on a Confederate soldier's grave. Before you chastise me on that stance, try to get your mind into the world that these men lived in. Do not preach to me about being politically correct or that the hard feelings from the Civil War died off long ago. These brave men died far from home, defending what they thought was right. They earned the privilege of having a Confederate battle flag or a flag from their home state on their final resting place! They gave their lives for the cause. Please do not disrespect them with an American flag on their grave. They fought against that flag, not for it.

RE: Frank and Myrtle Agnor
Hi Darrell,

Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you. I'm not related to them - I added them from the Duiguid records - but I appreciate you adding photos to them.

Thanks,
Ann

Horsley Plot in Presbyterian Cemetery
Darrell,

Thank you so much for the photo of Marion Horsley's burial plot in Presbyterian Cemetery. It's so sad that he doesn't have a marker. However, that must be his location because the marker to the side in your photo is his brother's, William T. Horsley. Howe ever did you find where his plot was?

Thanks again!

John

RE: Ammon Hancock, Esq
Hi Darrell - Thx so much for your note. I know my family was prominent in Lynchburg, so that fits. My records show an Ammon Hancock (married Sarah Green) with your same dates, who was older brother to my Justus Hancock (my 4th greatgrandfather). And looking anew, I found a Find A Grave record for Justus, created in the last year in a small family cemetery. I am not a direct descendent of Ammon, and knew nothing of his personal life (other than wife's name). But I do know names & dates on his parents Col. Samuel Hancock and Ann Moon (neé Ammon… hence where the name comes from). Yes, while you contributed the most important parts of this record, I would be grateful to be manager. My member # is 46485989. thanks :)
P.S. I also have Ammon/Justus sisters Mary "Polly" marrying Daniel Brown, Lucy marrying Bernard Hendrich, and Sophia marrying William Powell… just in case you run across those names.

RE: Old City Cemetery
Darrel, I am very happy to do it, and I am very happy you are there to help out, we will get it done, but we have a ways to go. Thank you for all your help. I think it is great when people work together to help our fallen soldiers, North or South, they all need to be remembered, and honored. Ted

RE: Landrums in Greenbrier County
Good morning!

Have you spoken to the folks at the Greenbrier Historical Society?

They are really wonderful and helpful anytime I have needed information. I am glad to help in any way that I can. Is there anyone in particular you are searching for?

Thank you for the offer and the transfer. I think I may have another photo that I can use if I decide to change it up.
