|Bio and Links|
Born in North Carolina, but have also lived in New York, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Washington DC, and South Carolina. Graveyards and tombstones have always been a curiosity to me. I was a data entry operator for many years, also a history and genealogy addict. Since being retired, I've put those things to use to help make sure that people (and pets) that I put into Find A Grave are more than just names on a tombstone. I hope to help people find their relatives and friends that might have been hard to find otherwise.|
My earliest known ancestor was Robert Brisko, who was born around 1220 in Brisko, Cumberland, (now known as Cumbria), England. My husband is a direct descendant of Henry and Eulalia Burtt, who came from England in the 1630's and settled in Springfield, Massachusetts. Henry Burtt was one of the first settlers of Springfield, and most all of the really early settlers of Springfield are related either directly or indirectly to him or his descendants.
I do have some people in here who died and I have not been able to find out where they are buried---especially World War II casualties. If anyone should know the whereabouts of anyone I have put in here in an unknown status, please do let me know where they can be found. Some of you already have done that, and I appreciate it very much.
I do want to say that two of my "pet peeves" are some of the people (the self-appointed "Find A Grave Cops"), and the FAG bullies, who seem to want to to tell everybody else what to do, and are quite rude about it. They need to "Get A Life". Also people who enter names into Find A Grave, but then don't keep them up or are not there to make corrections or connections (outside of maybe dying themselves),etc. They shouldn't start what they don't want to finish.
Find A Grave also gives us an "unknown" choice for burials or cremations, etc. and if it's already a known fact that these people are dead, and they will most likely never be officially linked to any particular burial place, they also have a right to be remembered and to be linked to their other family members--as a genealogy tool at the very least, as Find A Grave links up to Ancestry. So--I will gladly link those who have an unknown status. They can easily be changed if they are proved to be in any particular place. They were somebody too, and deserve to be remembered.

|deegraver||RE: Hughes Cemetery|
I added the # because it was sent with the message I got.
All of the surrounding cemeteries listed in Pilson's book mention Hughesville, Va. and a Hughsville house.
Directions to another cemetery say it is located 1/2 mile south of Hughes Cemetery and near the North Carolina Line.
Call Ken Harbour, a retiree, 276-694-7774.
He is a Patrick native and very helpful.
He has no Email.
I just got this message.
Please add the directions to the opening page and add Hughesville, as the town. It's not on the drop down menu so you will have to type it in.
Thanks a lot.
After you add all of this someone may be able to find the cemetery and photograph it.

Hi, I have him linked for you, Larry
|deegraver||Need help Please|
Jacob Anderson Boggs b. ca. 1839 NC
married Elizabeth Bennett (1841-1914)
she is buried at Mount Olive Bapt. Church in Stokes County, N.C. finagrave # 19082386.
I am looking for Jacob's burial place.
Thank you so very much for your generosity in transferring Sarah Holloway Perrel Flynt to my care. I have now successfully connected her, and as more information comes my way I will be adding to OUR memorial.
Your willingness to share is much appreciated.
With regards and sincerest thanks,
|Charlene honaker-ryan||RE: Find A Grave Contributors|
MOST people may thank you but I can assure you we are MOST, anyone that has any business knowing where he is buried is already aware of it because they are family. So no, I am not most and don't feel like this is appropriate. I know my
Parents will feel the same way. Just because you have some people out there that thank you for it, it doesn't make it your right nor justify it. It's OUR pain and OUR tragedy and we prefer it to be a private matter.

|Brad||Lindsey or Lindsay?|
I guess they may have spelled it both ways. Thier death cerificates do have Lindsay. Those two markers have Lindsey but the other son and his family have Lindsay on thier markers.
You would think they would sit down and have a family meeting about it. I think its fine either way.
