My husband says I spend too much time in graveyards, doing genealogy and on the computer. Maybe he's right.|
My favorite cemeteries are Mount Hebron in Winchester, Virginia, and Rock Creek in Washington, D. C.
- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.
- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:
What are your naming conventions?
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.
- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs. Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.

|Craig Kilby||George Mercer|
Audrey, I think there is something wrong with our database about this man. He was the son of Hugh Mercer alright, but was he really an aide-de-camp of George Washington and ALSO killed at Battle of Princeton--age 66? I have brought this up with Mike Lyman, the compiler of the research for the book. I know what the source is for this statement, but I am wondering as to how accurate it is (Virginia Military Records, p. 357 which is a compendium of miscellaneous articles which may or may not be accurate). Will have to check that out. So, for now, it's still up in the air. I am leaning toward deleting him but that is not my call. Thanks for your reply to this.
|Craig Kilby||George Mercer #19812596|
Audrey. Just to muck up the waters about this man even more, I am working with the Virginia SAR on an upcoming book of Rev. War patriots buried in Virginia. We show this man, George Mercer, as born 1711 and killed at the battle of Princeton on 3 Jan 1777. He had been appointed as an aide-de-camp of General Washington on 17 Sep 1775 at Ft. Cumberland. We also show him (and I am not sure if this is accurate) as a son of Gen. Hugh Mercer. what do you make of this? The tombstone inscription is vague. Craig Kilby, Lancaster, VA
Thanks so much for transferring my great grandmother to me. It is a very kind gesture when someone is willing to do that. Many blessings.

You have my grandmother's maiden name spelled with an "s", but there is no "s" in her name. Would you please correct her name and her parents.

|Janna Felix||Management Request|
I would like to have management of 19856885 John Eldridge Stottlemyer. He was my 2nd great grandfather.
|Scott Hutchison||James Wilson Hammond|
Audrey,recently I received an Email that this is a dual listing. Since my mine was a earlier than yours I will ask you a favor. Mine has photo of him while yours has grave photo. Would you be so kind as to add grave photo to mine ans delete your posting? Thanks
|Tia Allbritten||Ida E Brown|
I am wondering if you have any information on Ida E Brown buried in Sperryville Cemetery. I am researching my 2nd great grandmother and I have found two memorials in this cemetery both stating wife of George W. Brown, but one is Ida E and the other is Eunice Ida both born in the same year and both died in the same year. I assume they may be the same person and two separate memorials created. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
|AS||Robert A Taylor|
I was hiking in Prince William Forest Park recently and I believe we found the family cemetery (original cemetery?) for Robert A Taylor. I can send you the picture if you want to add it to the Fina A Grave page. It has the same name and dates that you have listed.

|Jeff Lovelace||RE: King Family of Washington, DC|
Another contributor has located the obituaries that I was looking for. Unfortunately, the burial site was not revealed in the obits, but I was able to employ the names of the living in the obits, in order to locate a family member of the deceased. It doesn't always work, but sometimes it proves to be successful.
My gratitude goes out to you for your kind offer to assist me.
Have a blessed day!
|Jeff Lovelace||King Family of Washington, DC|
Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library?
Please help me if you can.
