Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an author, and retired home improvement contractor, transplanted to Fredericksburg, VA, by way of Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, and Allentown, PA but starting from NYC ten years ago. Through this site I was finally able to locate the grave of my only full-blooded sibling, Dorothy Ann Behling, who died when she was 8 years old, having been severely retarded from birth. To my knowledge, no one, besides myself and my half-sister Tracy, has visited her grave in 40 years. Please, if you have the time, visit her page here and say hello. I'm sure she'd enjoy the company. She's in Long Island National Cemetery in Suffolk, NY

I'm a Vietnam era veteran, serving in the US Navy from July of 1974 to July of 1980 as a Gunner's Mate and EOD technician.

I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician in New York City, both paid and as a volunteer, for fourteen years, although my family's business is in the construction industry.

From 1984 to 1986 I was the telecommunications editor for a major computer magazine, and authored several popular pieces of software, some of which are still being used.

I'm also the founder, and chairman of the board of directors, of the SP:WaW Depot Association, Inc., a non-profit WWII wargaming and historical society with more than 3,700 members worldwide.

Currently I'm the owner of a small general contracting company here in Fredericksburg, Virginia, though I'm taking it easy these days due to a serious knee injury. (Update: I retired and closed the company in 2011)

My longtime girlfriend and I recently got married (June 21st, 2010) and are enjoying a quiet honeymoon at home while she recovers from knee replacement surgery.

In my spare time I enjoy amateur (ham) radio, I'm a volunteer SKYWARN Storm Spotter for the National Weather Service and a member of the Stafford County Emergency Communications Team. My ham callsign is KJ4VOV and you can usually find me on the 2 meter or 70cm bands anywhere in northern Virginia.

Due to a recent spate of what I consider excessive photo requests by one member I am no longer doing volunteer photos. It seems some folks just want to abuse the the generosity of the volunteers, asking for photos of entire sections of cemeteries. The site really needs to set a limit on how many requests a member can make in a given period of time. I'm tired of seeing my mailbox filled with 30, 40 or 50 requests for photos, all from the same person or persons.

Hi, I saw that you were trying to find a marker for Thomas Calvert King. I have been doing research on Thomas and his family. I have his obituary but would love to have a copy of Mollie's. Any help you could give me would be appreciated. I can be contacted directly at wisijohn@comcast.net. Thank you, Nancy

William Kennedy grave (FAG)
I am sorry for the huge delay in answering your mail. I have made the change to William Kennedy's grave number that you suggested. Again, sorry for the late reply.

You're welcome. I added his wife Lillian, and posted her stone as well. I hope that the photos meet with you expectations. Best regards. -T.

According to his headstone he was born in California, not Italy. His wife Lillian is buried with him. -T.

Julius was a Pvt. in the Army during World War I. His middle name starts with R. I hope this helps you determine if he is your girlfriends relative.

Stacy is good people and a good resource.
Based on the time frame, there was only 1 City Cemetery.
There are several cases on unmarked burials that were listed as City burials in the FDXBG papers in the late 1800s, so this is not that surprising.
Wander around Lots 1, 2 and 12; the majority of I.O.O.O.F. burials are there. You might even contact the local I.O.O.O.F. chapter.

One More Thing
I totally forgot about the wives of Thomas King! If you do find him and want to grab their photos while you're there, I would be most appreciative. But, again, don't go out of your way to do this. Thanks, Roy

Please don't go to any trouble for this photo. There is some information on him on findagrave with a picture of his obituary. He is listed there as a private in the confederate army so he may be in that part of the cemetery. I know how big that cemetery is so if you can't find a record that gives you a lot number, don't worry about it and I will get the picture when I have an opportunity to get back up there some day. Lord knows he isn't going anywhere!

Thanks for your offer about my photos but there is over 500 of them and it would take way too much of your time. Maybe the powers that be will allow for more pixels some day. Thanks again. Roy

The Rowe Grave
I don't know but I rather imagine that Joe was independently wealthy and probably just chose to be buried in the newer cemetery. I have relatives in both cemeteries. In fact my father and his first wife are buried in Oak Hill. Several of my mother's side of the family are buried in the city cemetery (Stoffregen's, Peytons, etc.) I grew up in Fredericksburg but now live in Florida.

I have tried to transfer some photos I've taken onto findagrave but I get the message that the file is too large. I've emailed the website but have gotten no response. I use a fairly standard Kodak digital camera so I don't know what the problem is.

Thanks again.
Roy

B.W.: I wish I could help you but the obit is all I have. In Bob Krick's "30th Virginia Infantry", King is also listed as being interred in the FDXBG City Cemetery, as opposed to the FDXBG Confederate Cemetery, which is enclosed within the same wall as the City Cem.
Sorry I can't point you in the right direction.
