|Bio and Links|
I'm Bruce Paul, a long time resident of Bedford County, Virginia.
I enjoy history, photography and the outdoors.
You are welcome to use my photos for personal use. Please give me credit as "Contributor #46829150" and reference this website.
Although most of what I contribute here is photography related, I'm a map/plat sort of person. I enjoy the challenge of finding "places".
I appreciate the updates and stories that all of you have provided! I don't have time to respond with a Thanks for each one, but rest assured I review them all for consistency and take care of them as soon as I can.
I'm currently working on the LOG sister cemeteries (Longwood, Oakwood, Greenwood) in Bedford, VA. To be more specific I'm in Blocks 1 & 2 of Greenwood taking photographs, working my way south from Longwood Av. (November) Note that you can view GPS coordinates in the photo EXIF data if you download that photo.
Thanks to the Bedford Genealogical Society for updates, the online Bedford Cemetery Records (Ramaker.Com), and the resources of the Bedford Museum for their help in this endeavor.
Also a thanks to the VA Dance Studio in Forest, VA (vadance.com) for letting me use their studio as a comfortable place to organize and upload my photos. I confess... I'm a dedicated Ballroom Dancer.
Last Update/Review March 2016.

That is because I am kin to pretty much everyone in the cemetery. I have many close relatives buried there.

I created the memorial for Thomas Hilley at Longwood and linked him to his sons. I would appreciate it if you would add the appropriate photos to the memorial. It is Find A Grave Memorial# 156593695. Thank you so much!
|On the Trail||Thomas B Hilley 16th GA|
I noticed you have a virtual cemetery of the memorials for Confederate soldiers buried at Liberty. Thomas Hilley of Co C 16th Georgia Vol Infantry is listed on the roster from the Savannah Daily News and Herald, May 22, 1866 as follows:
T Hilley,C,16th 6-23-1863
He does not yet have a Find A Grave memorial. Unfortunately carded records and regimental roster list him as having died in January 1863 in a Richmond hospital, so I doubt his family even knows where he died and was buried.
I was going to create one, but wondered if you would please add the appropriate photos as you have for other similar Find A Grave memorials? Thanks so much and Happy New Year!
