Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not post death certificates on my memorials. If you have a better quality photo of any grave marker than the ones I have posted on my memorials, please post it. If not, please don't post it. Thank you.

My work on the Confederate section of Old City Cemetery is my primary goal at this time. This is a labor of love and I will not stop til it is complete. If you take photos in the Confederate section to post a memorial here, please check, double check and triple check before posting. There are a lot of errors in the records and a number of the stones are incorrectly marked. I will be posting memorials for soldiers in the Confederate section based on how their names are written down in the Diuguid records as those records seem to be the first place most people turn to for identifying a soldier. I will also post the correct name of any soldier based on unit records or any other information you may pass on to me with the correct spelling of a soldier's name. A HUGE thank you goes out to find-a-grave member LJH for all of the help in correctly identifying the men!

I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

Gail Phelps' headstone
Darrell, thank you so much for adding the picture!

I was glad to hear that Lynchburg has started to dry up some.

Do have a wonderful Day!

RE: Gail Phelps
Hi Darrell!
I wasn't expecting such a quick response!

Please don't rush about the picture. Do wait for better weather. She has waited this long.

I was cleaning out a box of old papers, pictures, etc. and found Gail's obit. I just guessed at the interment date. I remember at 13 years of age, her funeral was very scarey to me and some other classmates.

But I remember her smile. I know I have an old school yearbook from the Ruffner Elementary School in one of these boxes. Once I find that, I will place a picture of her on the record.

Take care and be safe!

Husband of Jane Jennings
I am researching the Jennings family of Campbell County for a friend. In Jane Amanda (Poindexter) Jennings' Memorial, Find A Grave 94121932, you have a comment about her husband William's death.

Could you point me towards the source for that information? I would like to find more information on Dr. Jennings and possibly learn more about his service as a surgeon in the Confederate States Medical Staff.
