Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy through the Leftwich Historical Association, but am building family trees from all sides of my, and my husband's, families.

TRANSFERS: With any findagrave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer. Send a transfer request using "Suggest a Correction" under the "Edit" tab on the memorial page. Send a request for each memorial that you want.

RE: Dabney Wharton Abbott
According to "Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia: Special Virginia Edition" H.H. Hardesty & Co. Publishers; New York, Richmond, Chicago and Toledo, 1884, pg. 412

"Dabney Abbott ....was born in Campbell County, Virginia, January 7, 1820, and was about seven years old when his parents, Garland and Nancy (Terrell) Abbott, made their home in Bedford County."

Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery Appomattox
Do you know where records are kept for those interned in this cemetery? Is this the cemetery on Lee-Grant Ave?

Mary ??? Mem. # 59684360
Hi Frances,

Do you have any info on the above?
I think this lady was married to Elver Riggs.
If this is the same, her name before marriage was Mathews.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Francis,

I had linked Mary to her parents but have found conflicting information. Would you review this record and if possible clear up this inconsistency?

Thanks for your help, Bruce

RE: Patry and S.H. Thomas
Thank you for your amazingly quick reply! I did not look closely at the page. Maybe you took the photo of the church? That's where I got your name.
