Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Engineer. Looking at family history in Johntson, Bladen and Robenson counties in North Carolina for the Munn's Ryals, and Burney's. My wife's family is from the Chicago area: the Schoditsch, Buenzow, Petznick Ulrich, and Knauf.

If you find any mistakes in my entries,
email me and I will correct it. I would like to thank all who have added links, bios or photos, your kindness is appreciated. If you find a memorial I have added and would like to have it removed from Findagrave, please ask, and I will remove it. I don't have any intention to offend or upset anyone, just love to help and Findagrave is such a wonderful resource for honoring ones who have passed and for helping ones to connect to their family history.
I'm not related to most of my enteries, the information I add to each memorial is all I have.

Thanks for the transfer of his memorial. Very much appreciated. I am still searching for where his wife Venezuela Celeste Grow Templeton was buried. She died 12 yrs after him in San Antonio, TX.

RE: Clark Cemetery
Nope, don't change anything about the name yet until I can discover more info about it. You wouldn't have to change the name anyway ... only add additional comments in the description.

I'm going to make some phone calls to Funeral Homes in the area to see whether any one of them knows about this particular burial ground.

I'll tell you what I've "assumed" might have occurred. This "might" have belonged to Clark Chapel Church, which "might" have been abandoned and "possibly" torn down, thereby the Cemetery may have been 'abandoned.' I figure I'll contact the city or county gov't in hopes of determining who owns the land, or the burial ground itself.

I'll let you know if I discover anything useful. Thanks for posting this cemetery! :-)
Blessings, Sandi :-)

RE: Photos
Hi Rich...sorry to keep bugging you through here. I have literally thousands more pictures from the various graveyards here in Lynchburg as well as others. Finding the time to sort through them has escaped me, but am constantly working on it. I will send you emails with a list of the ones that I post to your memorials and stop bugging you through here.

New and legible photo posted to his memorial so that birth and death dates can be corrected.
