Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Chesapeake, Virginia and am a Civil War history buff and a lover of old cemeteries. I love to travel around Virginia with my Labrador Retrievers, enjoy the solitude and taking pictures of the battlefields.

As far as the memorials that I post, most of them are not family members of mine but rather memorials that I found to be really impressive when I was strolling though a cemetery or family members of photo requests that I fulfilled who didn't already have a memorial established. If you would like me to transfer any of them, please let me know.

Anyone who wishes to use any of my photographs for non-commercial purposes has my permission. Also, if I have posted a memorial of a relative that you object to, please notify me and I will remove it.

Many thanks to all of you who have shared stories of your family with me. Every day that I volunteer is a history lesson for me and I cherish the many stories that you have shared.

Thanks for such quick work. Their daughter recently died and was a friend of ours. My wife was the secretary for her husband.

Jake Dog,
Thanks so much for taking the time to go to the cemetery, find the grave and take the picture that I had requested for George Roller.

RE: Williams - Holly Lawn Cemetery
Thank you Jake! For taking photos of my Aunt Vic Montanari Williams and her husband and their daughters' markers. I checked records to confirm dates and relationships and I submitted an edit to link Victoria and Walter as Helen's parents. Thanks for adding a memorial for Helen. The Williams had one more daughter, Katherine W Hundley so I submitted an edit to link her parents and her husband, Leonard E Hundley.

Thanks, your contribution is appreciated.

Jones family

Thanks so much for photographing the markers for Tiberius Jones, Martha Turner Jones, Mary Jones Howell and Pearl Jones Bowen and her husband James.

I greatly appreciate it.

Bruce Spencer

P.S. Don't have any explanation for having listed 1908 as Mary Howell's DOB. Her death cert and the grave marker both say 10/26/1898 so I must have fallen asleep at the wheel....
