Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my name is Maggie, and I currently live in Virginia with my husband and children. Genealogy has been one of my hobbies since 1993. I enjoy researching whether it is for my own famly or for others. Most of my memorials have no relationship to me. I hope posting these online is of help to others searching for their families. If you find errors on any of my entries, please e-mail me. I will be glad to fix them. If you find your family memorial that I've entered and would like ownership, let me know so I can turn it over to you.

A special thank you to the photo volunteers that have taken pictures of my family and uploaded them for me.

A CEMETERY EXISTS BECAUSE EVERY LIFE IS WORTH LOVING AND REMEMBERING. IT IS A SUSTAINING SOURCE OF COMFORT FOR THE LIVING.

PRESERVING HISTORY AND BEAUTIFYING
ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC CEMETERY
PORTSMOUTH, VA

I'm currently working on memorials for this cemetery which is a work-in-progress. On the Find a Grave page it states that 68% of the photos have been taken. However, my brother-in-law, Johnny and I have photographed the entire cemetery and there are many headstones that are either missing or unable to read due to age. Numerous headstone tablets have fallen off their bases, and footstones are broken or crooked. A large number of graves are very old. Even though the preservation of headstones rely on family, many of the deceased have no surviving family members and/or have moved away and cannot care for landscaping or markers.

I'm constantly updating this cemetery. If you see any errors or would like to add new information, I would love to hear from you.

If you have a loved one buried at All Saints and would like flowers or a plant put at their headstone, please contact me so we can work something out. I won't charge you for my time or gas just the actual cost of the flowers/plant of your choosing. There are so many urns just waiting to be filled. I will email you a picture of your family memorial with the flowers. Also, if you would like a headstone rubbing, I would be more than happy to accommodate your request (free). In the near future, we're hoping to locate all veterans at this cemetery and place small U.S. flags on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. So far, we have located 200+ veterans, but we think there are many more buried here.

Also, note that if you plan a day visit to All Saints, there are hardly any shade trees so bring plenty of water. Unfortunately, the lots and sections are no longer marked. Until a map of the cemetery is done, you probably will have to walk around to find your loved one. A word of caution - the ground is not level so be careful where you step.

Thank You
Thank you so much for the information recently added that enabled me to 'grow' my family tree. I didn't know the maiden names of my great-great-great grandmother nor of her daughter. Your posting of their death certificates provided that information which is invaluable.

Sincerely ,
Louis Stephen Slade, Jr.

Margaret Lanchantin
Good Afternoon Maggie,

Margaret Lanchantin is my great-grandmother. She passed just six months after Alfred. Tell me, please, what is involved in "turning over" the ownership of the memorial?

I also live in Virginia and I am wondering how you wound up taking this photo?

Thanks,
Michelle Lanchantin

Hello Maggie,
I'm looking for my Aunt. Her name is Mary Mathews. I came across the above. Does the church have any records? My Aunt was born in Portsmouth to William and Katherine Mathews in or about 1904. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
