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.

That is too bad. I am sorry I didn't realize you were looking only for Helmintoller information.

You have put a tremendous effort into supporting Find a Grave and that is no easy task.

I value the information and research by the Helmintollers. I have felt that the Johnstons/Johnsons/Helmintoller and Plymale were very interwoven and thought it important in establishing complete information especially as it relates to their own family cemetery.

My Dad was Glenn Hoke, and as you are aware, related to about half of Alleghany County as are the Helmintollers.

Keep up the good work.

Best Regards,

Erma

She is my 4th great aunt. Her parents were William Johnston b. abt. 1778 Botetourt County and died Nov 1851 Covington. Her mother was Susannah Harrison b. 18 Jan 1775 Botetourt and died 1830 Alleghany County VA.

If you would like, I can provide her sibling information. I have spent six years researching this side of my family and have considerable information.

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
