Photos— Don't bother posting pictures lifted from other web sites. It is against the site rules and I will have those removed by administrators without comment. Death Certificates are the only document approved for inclusion. Please pay attention to the drop down menu categories when adding images. Photos of people, family and homes are not graves. Read More about Photo Guidelines here
Obits— I don't do obituaries but I will extract appropriate information to include on my memorials if you send them to me. Names of any surviving family member will not be included. Photos of obituaries are out of guidelines. Photos of the deceased taken from obituaries are also unacceptable. Read More about Obituary Guidelines here
Transfers— Use the "Edit" tab on the memorial for transfer requests. Posting requests as a Public Message will not be effective. If you can supply a reasonable explanation as to why you would better manage a memorial, or give sufficient proof of direct line relationship to the individual, I will be obliged to transfer it. Read More about Transfers here
Requests for transfers without an explanation will be archived and the memorial stored in Virtual Cemetery for monitoring.
Church, Norman & Calloway Family Cemetery Hi, you kindly added a cemetery photo of this cemetery in Watauga (Church, Norman & Calloway Family Cemetery) and under your photo you put that the last burial was 1979.
Sadly we had to add another family member here a few weeks ago. So although not important, if you get a chance, you might want to change that to read the last burial was 2015?
Charles G. Horton Joe - I just pulled his dc up again and the informant is listed as his wife, Minnie (Haire) Horton. Are you saying that she wasn't his wife??? At this point I prefer to leave the typed info in the bio's because I'll get constant updates/messages from other folks who review the dc's and also because the links are subject to change at any time. It wouldn't surprise me that if I made a change that someone else will come along in the near future and change it again. I can't always check the accuracy of someone's submissions. Btw, I agree with you that dc's aren't always a reliable source but when I see an informant in the equation who is a spouse or a child, I have a tendency to put more faith into their info.
Ed Pate I spent 3 hours a couple weeks ago looking for Ed. I was convinced he wasn't there. I went back today after church. Walked right up to a large azalea bush, and inside was Ed and his wife. If you want to set up a memorial for her, I will gladly post the picture. Rachel Pate 1884-1944.
Levi Pate Unknown to us where we belong But known to the many he served along His name a whisper as the twilight fades His face a memory as we speak to bade His name is known, his grave is not But he lies in peace, a hallowed spot
Buried in the Soldiers Section , Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond Va. According to Chris Ferguson, Author of " Southerners at Rest.", Page 206, the actual burial location is unknown. http://cwba.blogspot.com/2008/06/ferguson-southerners-at-rest.html I will add a picture of The Soldiers Memorial to his Memorial
There are over 18,000 Confederates buried in Hollywood. The original markers were wood. After the war they were replaced with stone numbered row markers The headstones for unknown's are placed by family members in the "Valley of the Unknowns", after research. The fee for a headstone from Hollywood is $100 for the headstone footer. The headstone itself is free as they are considered veterans. The following is the link for the Veterans paper work .Should you desire to have a headstone placed. http://www.va.gov/vaforms/va/pdf/VA40-1330.pdf
