We are a retired Navy couple, so please let us know if there is a military headstone you need that is in our area, will make sure you get it...|
We are working on getting the GPS locations and pictures of the Prince William County area cemeteries. if you need anything, just let us know.
NOTICE: If you want to use any of my photos that we have posted on Find A Grave, you are welcome to do so as long as it is for genealogical research and is neither immoral or illegal. We keep the original, higher resolution pictures for all pictures we take in our county and are very willing to share them upon request.
Transfer Requests... It seems many folks don't have any manners when it comes to requesting a transfer... The people who send rude/demanding correction requests also need to learn some manners if they want the changes made. Yes, mistakes/typos can happen. Acting like it is your right to be rude and demand changes about it is uncalled for.
Remember: Genealogy without documentation is mythology!

|Valerie Hanelt||Andrew Guntley|
Hello, I believe you have linked this person (buried in LA) to a family in Philo California by mistake. Andrew Guntly was not in the military. Note last name spelling. Our Andrew was born in 1827 in Switzerland, naturalized in Madison, Ill, and came west in 1860 on a wagon train and farmed in Philo (also called Highland or Christine) from then until 1893. Please sever the link to Mary Barbara Schnider in Mendocino County if you can. The person "J" does not respond to my request. I need to link the correct Andrew Guntly, buried in Shields cemetery in Philo, to his wife Mary Barbara Schnider. Thanks so much, Val

If I did not already say so, of course you may use the picture!
|KSonier||RE: Nathaniel Niles Photo|
You're very welcome! The cemetery was terribly vandalized, and many stones either vanished or were broken in pieces too small to assemble. Fortunately this one was undamaged. A group of people are working hard to restore the lot.

Oh course you may use my photo. I am happy to help.
|Annette Baker||George Reuben Shultz|
You have a memorial and photo of George Reuben Shultz in the Bader Cemetery. I'm looking for his wife. Her maiden name was Ellen or Nellie Jane Lester. Her record in "Illinois, Deaths, and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947" has her buried in Bader, Schuyler, Illinois. She died 23 Oct 1929. She was buried 26 Oct 1929. Her record also has her name as Ellen J Musgrove. Is there a stone for her? Is there a cemetery record of her?
|Anna||Elmer Milton Clarke - additional death information|
Thanks for your work. I was doing some on Elmer Milton Clarke, a distant cousin of my cousin (whew!), when I located information into the accident which caused Clarke's death. If you would like to add it, you certainly may. Best regards, and here we go [attribution at the end]:
Minnieville [insert Prince William County, VA], Pinned Under Weight of Two Horses and Killed. A distressing fatal accident occurred late last Friday [January 16, 1914] evening on Chamberlain’s hill, near Minnieville, when the two-horse team driven by Elmer Clarke, aged 25, of that place, went down an embankment of twelve or fifteen feet to the old road and the driver was crushed to death under the weight of the horses. Young Clarke was returning from Woodbridge with a load of groceries for his father, Mr. C. E. Clarke, who runs a general store at Minnieville. His brother, John Clarke, was driving a team just ahead and another wagon followed close behind. Ascending Chamberlain’s hill in the black darkness about 8 p.m., the horses of the middle team plunged down the steep embankment and the driver ahead heard no sound of the accident. The man in the rear, however, heard smothered cries from the darkness and ran ahead to stop the first driver to aid in the rescue. Together they carefully made their way to young Clarke who, by this time, had breathed his last. The weight of both horses was upon him, one above the other, and yet the horses escaped serious injury. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 1 o’clock at Greenwood Primitive Baptist church. Elder Charles H. Waters, of Washington, conducted the service after which the body was laid to rest in Greenwood cemetery. Surviving members of the family are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Clarke, a sister, Miss Lucile Clarke, and two brothers, Messrs. John and Paul Clarke, to whom the sympathy of the community is extended. The Manassas Journal, January 23, 1914 p-1.

|Sue Reneau Damewood||Geraldine Bates Damewood #17657246|
Can you tell us anything about her? Who is she buried close to? Would appreciate any help. My husband does the Damewood genealogy and does not have anything on her.
|Margaret||Julia Clarke Selecman|
Thank you both for all of your photos for my Virginia family.
I have submitted another edit for Julia Selecman as I goofed and gave you her number instead of her husband's. It appears that she is linked twice to herself instead of James A. Selecman.
My sincere apologies for my error.
You help is appeciated.

|Karen Brewer||Tull cemetery|
Thank you! Do you know how exciting it was to get a phone call from my parents that they are standing in Tull cemetery and I'm on the other side of the state! I wanted to be there so bad. I wasn't at home either and I couldn't tell them what pictures to get! Thank you so much. I appreciate all you do for Find A Grave!
|RickC||RE: Thomas & Mary Hampton Headstones|
Thanks for the advice. I never heard about baby powder. I'll have to try it.
