Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Augusta County, Virginia. I started out with findagrave by listing family surnames that I am researching - Albert, Sites, & Stokes.

The photo is the grave of my Granddad's little brother Lewis. Family members couldn't remember the location of the grave. Then one day while looking at an old photo album with my Grandma, I asked about a photo. Grandma's answer was the clue needed to find the grave. What was lost was found.

If you have the time, please stop by and visit my heroes. They have had a great influence in my life and I miss them very much. My Granddad Albert & Grandma Albert, my Great Grandma Stokes and my 2nd Mom.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Please include findagrave in the email subject line.

I will gladly add information to a memorial, but in doing so, I will link the contributor to the information provided. If you do not wish your findagrave name to be linked to the information, please do not provide it. I will not add information without the source of that information.

Fork Union Baptist Church cemetery
As far as I can tell, you added this cemetery to find a grave. You need to remove this cemetery (I have already contacted findagrave about this 2 or 3 times with no results.) as this is a private family cemetery with only 35 graves. The cemetery on findagrave lists 61 names, most of them who are not even buried in Fluvanna County. If you will see that this site if removed, I will add the correct info.
I live in Fork Union and I am in the process of updated the Historical Society cemetery books. I know what I am talking about. EDF

Oakwood Cemetery, Richmond, Va..
Hi Mike I was wondering if you could take down one of your pictures of Oakwood. I took a panorama shot of the cemetery from the Confederate speaker stand. It shows the Confederate section and the other side of the cemetery. Thank you for your time Mike B.

Oak Hill Baptist Church cemetery
Hi Mike,
The picture of the cemetery that you placed on Oak Hill Memorial Garden cemetery in Massies Mill, belongs instead with the Oak Hill Baptist Church cemetery in Old Myndus, Nelson County, VA. It is a good picture with a good description of the location. As verification, please check a couple of the names in the picture with the cemetery list.

Thanks for all you do.

Gen Robert Porterfield bur in Thornrose?
Hello. I am working for the VA SAR for an upcoming book on Rev. War veterans buried in Virginia, as an editor to the existing database. Findagrave is a very useful place to do just that.

For General Robert Porterfield, our data shows that he is buried at Old Presbyterian Church in Waynesboro, not at Thornrose. Our information is a letter from the Historic Commission of Waynesboro stating this, which was included in the nucleus of our database, the JLARC report (Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission) on burials of RW veterans in Virginia.

If this is in error, or there is better evidence that Gen. Porterfield is indeed buried at Thornrose, please let me know.

pics of James William Albert
Hey Mike, my name is Chad Albert. James William was my Great, Great Grandfather. My great Grandfather was Joyce Albert and my Grandfather was his son James Albert. I would have some more photos of of either James William or my Great Great Grandmother if at all possible. Who knows maybe I might have something you need and want??

Thank You
