Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello - I got into Genealogy back in 1994 or so, and spent the next 8-9 years researching my family (Mostly in Chesterfield County, Virginia - and its surrounding counties). Have always found 'walking around' in cemeteries peaceful and informative, so I've begun to bring my camera along and add records to Find-A-Grave. Like everyone else, I may very well key in entries wrong from time to time (as in, Trouble reading the marker), so IF you see a mistake - or have more info on the deceased (Like full/missing Maiden Names, bios, etc), please use the "suggest a correction" feature on a memorial if you have additional info or corrections about anyone I have listed (Please Don't Leave Info In The Virtual Flowers).

If you're a close family member & would like one of the memorials I've made transferred to you within the FAG guidelines (with the exception of my family members), please let me know by using the "Suggest A Correction" feature from the memorial. Due to some unusual requests, please let me know your relationship to the person you are requesting a transfer. A Generic "Transfer this Memorial to me" will be not be honored. Also, If you request a transfer, Please Include your Findagrave ID#.

Thank you for adding the biography for Richard Earl Allan. He was my "boss" and best friend for many years. He was a great man who walked among great men. We could use a lot more like him.

Thank you, Ashland Genealogist, for posting the markers for my aunt and uncle Johnson. We always live a thousand miles apart, so only got to know them a little. Happy to see your good work.

Any credits should go to them. Elizabeth "Sharpless" Brinton`s Mother was Lydia "Painter" Sharpless born- Sept 20, 1774 & died- Dec. 26, 1845. Hope this helps.
Thank You Again and Best Wishes,

RE: Howard Otis Willis
Thanks much for finding his parents. Although the writing on the birth certificate was easy to read, obviously the clerk had some challenges when it came to spelling. :)

Have a wonderful holiday!
