Bio and Links
I live in the Williamsburg, Va area. Building my personal family tree got me started with old family cemeteries a few years ago. As my tree has swelled I have been travelling to many cemeteries in Virginia recording the tombstones of siblings, spouses, children, etc of my line. Most of my work is in the Brunswick and Buckingham County areas of Virginia. Feel free to contact if you want one of the local or family cemeteries in those areas recorded digitally. I have a good set of USGS maps and a good gps so I don't mind hunting around for a cemetery. I have extensive genealogical information on many families of Buckingham and Brunswick and always enjoy helping others with their research. I am also available to help with family tree research in James City and York Counties in Virginia. Do not hesitate to inquire.

Sil Winfrey
I just saw where you maintain Sil Winfrey site at Woodlawn Cemetery in Timpson, Texas. Just curious, were you related to the Winfreys in Timpson. Sil father was well known in Timpson as he published the local paper for over 50 years.....sad he lost Sil, Jr. in WWII. as his parents had three children Two died young and Sil, Jr was KIA during WWII.

J. Winfrey,

The information for this cemetery was taken from the Stafford County WPA Report. This house and farm that the cemetery is located on was known as the Honest Nest.

Recorder Of The Cemetery: "I was unable to locate this cemetery to verify the data."

Source: Stafford County WPA Report
Total Number Of Marked Graves: 1
Oldest Marked Grave: L. P. Franklin -- Oct 18, 1852-July 18, 1853

Source For Above Information:
Stafford County, Virginia Cemeteries Vol. I, compiled and published By Cynthia L. Musselman, 1983, page: 68.

My Opinion: It's been over 150 years since this little boy's death. I very much doubt if the cemetery or tombstone exist today.

The farm has probably been swallowed up my a larger farm.

RE: Martins in Toano
Sorry to take so long answering your question. Computer using tablet right now. Cemetery is on Old Forge Road, 1/4 mile down on right there are two farm houses, close together. Cemetery is behind and to the left of smaller house. I think the new housing development goes right by the cemetery, but you have to be looking to see it. Cemetery is on private property. No one will notice you. It is the family cemetery of my deceased brother. Her grandfather was John Martin, who owned all the property at on time.

RE: john wiley baber
It was no problem J Winfrey. I was wondering if John has any living direct decedents ? I know he had one daughter reported by the Williamson news paper at the time of the accident, And that her and John's wife lived in Portsmouth Ohio. Not only is is John Wiley Baber remembered in a folk song about the railroad accident, there is also a detailed account of it in the book " Wheels Aflame,Whistle Wide Open" wrote by Jack & Kay Dickinson.
