Two of my favorite genealogy quotes are -
"Genealogy is not just a pastime; it's a passion." ~Mary Harrell-Sesniak~

"The best part about Genealogy is searching for ancestors and finding friends!"

If we have genealogical connections to the same memorial, I would be happy to exchange additional information.

My family surnames are: Hale with roots from Lewis Hale & Mary Burwell of Grayson Co., VA; Kincer with roots from Christopher Kincer & Nancy Kinser of Wythe Co., VA; Huddle with roots from Joseph Crockett Huddle
& Caroline Horne of Wythe Co., VA; Sult with roots from Stephen Wilkerson Sult & Mary "Mollie" Clark of Wythe Co., VA. Other family names are: James, Bell and Arney

My husband's family surnames are: Sheppard

I would be pleased if you would take a look at my parent's memorials and leave flowers -
Lee Hale and Louise Hale

If I have made any errors in any of my memorials, please let me know via the Suggest a Correction feature so I can correct them. Memorials are about remembering those who have passed away and doing the best we can at being accurate.

RE: Wythe Dixon #110065814 plus more
What an amazing story. I remember passing by that church and cemetery too. My cousin Nelson Riggle lived in Crockett until after high school. I sometimes shot a close up of a tombstone and posted them so if I put one on any of your memorials, I was just getting a close up and photo of entire stone. My cousins daughter helped me with the photos because you are right that cemetery is a challenge. I did get the cemetery in back of the church and am still posting them to find a grave. Feel free to use any you might need. Maybe we can meet when I come down next August?

You are welcome. Unfortunately, his dates are not inscribed on the monument. I checked all four sides.--Storres

Sue, We now have 2 sets of James & Lucy Yonts. Looks like Mr Archer put his in about 1 month before mine but mine was misspelled. Both have links that need to be moved or blended. My stuff can be removed as I am not in a contest to how much stuff I can put on line but I hate to loose all of the links. Any suggestions? Tom
