Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired military. Genealogy is a passion but I slow down when football season arrives. Willing to help others as much as possible. I focus on my Stewart roots (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and the Marshall family on my mother's side (Virginia).

I have photo documented local cemeteries in my area of James City County, Charles City County, Williamsburg and York County, VA. I am currently working on cemeteries in Surry, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, VA and on Richmond National Cemetery in Richmond, VA.

I have also photo documented several cemeteries in the Hilton Head Island, SC, Kitty Hawk (Dare County), NC and Leavenworth, KS areas while on vacation.

If I have added a memorial for one of your family members just let me know your Find A Grave member number and I will transfer it to you.

Hi Ron,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for listing my Grandmother in findagrave. I have been searching for her for 15 years! I had no idea she'd be in Virginia. Could you transfer her page to me? She is Jane Olivette Leonard #59598355 and I am Mary Richmond #47042214. Thanks again for your kindness and your time. -MARY DEE RICHMOND-

Mary is my second great grandmother and Ive hit a total brick wall on her parents. I think I found her family on the 1860 census but lose track of them. Do you happen to have any info on her parents or siblings?

Thanks in advance!

Thank You Sir. (for your continued service to everyday life)

I am taking a last minute weekend trip to Williamsburg VA.
A dear friend of mine dead and buried in July 2005.
I have tried to get in contact with family members to let someone know that I will be paying my respects, but they have seemed to... I don't know or want to say.

Basically, I am digging around the internet, first my Facebook Tribute page is now inaccessible, then I thought I was going to have to hassle Nelson Funeral Home for info.

But in the end, this webpage and you Sir have came through. *so you never know what actions will get noticed, but we do it anyways* Now I don't have to be overwhelmed walking around.

Thank you, Dalit Arkarath (Cpl USMC 2005-2009)

Thank you
I just wanted to say thanks for photographing the gravestones of the Edwards and New cemetery in Charles City and uploading them. Some of my ancestors are buried there and I went looking for it once myself but wasn't able to find the location. It's good to know that the place does still exist.

RE: James Alderman - Maple Shade Cemetery
Thanks a bazillion for the transfer :-)

No need for Donna to transfer ... she's my hubby's cousin. We worked together on uploading some memorials from some of the old cemeteries. I noticed her name on there and meant to say something to you about her but forgot LOL.

Thanks again. Have a fantastic evening.

Major Watkins Marable
Ron, this is Major Watkins Marable, Jr, the son of Major Watkins "Wattie/Waddy" Marable, Sr who was born in 1818.
I am pretty sure that "Major" was their name, and not their rank. I need to check on that. The Marables are part of my family.

Thank you so very much for the permission. I am a volunteer as well and I share all my photos ... I wish everyone would do the same.

If you are willing to transfer the memorial to me I'd love to take care of it. This is my husband's line.

Hello. I wanted to say thank you for the photo of the grave stone of James Alderman located in Maple Shade Cemetery which you posted on

As for your photo ... may I have permission to post it (and any other of your photos of my ancestors' and/or their graves that you may have posted or will post in the future) on my file. I post a message under the photo giving credit to the person who took the photo. I have no interest in publishing any books or using the photos in any way other than for genealogical purposes. I have several things I post under the photos depending on the "owner" of the photo's desires. I have two below ... if you will allow me to post your grave photos on my Ancestry file then I'll place the statement of your choice. The second one has a _____ in it and that's where I would place your e-mail address so people can contact you directly for permission.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer and the volunteer has kindly given me permission to post this on my file. You should take the steps to contact the owner of the photo for permission to use this photo for your personal use ... permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer. Permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give. You must contact _______ for permission to use this photo.

Again, thank you so much for your kindness ... Find A Grave volunteers are wonderful people :-)
