Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE - I will NOT process edits or transfer requests that are left in my messages. PLEASE SEND AN SAC for these requests!

Due to a new employment situation, I do not have the opportunity to be online as often as I have in the past. I am still an active member and will address your SACs as quickly as possible, but it may not be immediate, so please bear with me! Thanks!

I'm Mandy, and I'm a happily married mother of one living in central VA. I've always loved cemeteries, and thanks to this site I've found a great reason to spend my free time there!! Any nice weekend or evening you might run into me and my lovely assistants (son and dogs) at a cemetery in the area.

Currently I am working on documenting, in its entirety, Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, VA. It is the second largest cemetery in Virginia, behind Arlington. This may take a while! I have to give credit to the many members who have listed memorials from Blandford already: Paula, Barbara, George, and many others, but most of all Susan - you are the best!

To my knowledge, I am of no relation to the memorials I've created, except for those listed here. If you find any errors or omissions in any of them, please feel free to contact me and I will correct them expediently.

I prefer that you use the Suggest a Correction function under the "Edit" tab to request additions/changes or transfers - it makes it much easier for me to find the specific memorial that way. If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send! If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)

Hello Mandy,

I have something you may be interested in. Geo. M. Brasfield had 1,000 shares of IOLA Petroleum out of Maine. I have the certificate with his signature releasing those shares. I can send you a .pdf of both sides of the document. You can reach me at or He sounds like an interesting character.

Mandy, Received this email from Sam Abady. You created the memorial, I only put the pictures there. Jim.
Ref.: 69431637
My Father's Name
Thank you for posting my father's grave on this website. His name was Abraham Aaron Abady. You had it backwards as Aaron Abraham Abady. The confusion is understandable because his friends and family called him by his middle name. But Aaron was his middle name, and Abraham his first name, as clearly can be seen on his headstone in the photograph.
