Bio Photo -She Walks These Hills-

"She walks these hills in a long black veil, she visits my grave when the night wind wails.
Nobody knows, nobody sees but me...."

(song lyrics by Dill and Wilkins)

------------------------------

For years I have been intrigued in researching the history of my family. I had no idea when you pull one thread, dozens more appear. I have met many wonderful fellow historians in this pursuit and in this aspect I am forever grateful to Find A Grave.

I simply enjoy people's stories and each grave and headstone mark a life that is interesting and worth knowing more about.

Often times we are so consumed by our own lives we forget- or overlook the voices from the past. They were here before us, we can learn from their lives.

Laurence Hamilton Fox
I am Hamilton's niece. I wonder if you have any questions for me since none of my updates have been posted. I have located his death certificate. He died at Arbor Christian Home in Ruther Glen, Caroline County, VA. The death certificate has his name spelled Laurence (not Lawrence) Hamilton Fox. His parents are listed as Lawrence Nelson Fox and Nellie Sidney Sands. What other information may I provide to you. Hamilton was my father's brother.
Thanks for your kind attention to this update of information. Courtney

Wingfields of Hanover
Hi, I read your post about Walnut Shade in Hanover County, VA . I am disappointed to hear that the house and graveyard is gone. I too am a direct descendant of that family. Martha Ellen Wingfield was my great great great grandmother.

Looking for Information about Winston Family
Hi! I'm a doctoral student at the University of Maryland currently researching the Winston Family, specifically the murder of Virginia Bell Winston and her child in July of 1852. I'm looking for more information about the Winston family in general and was wondering if you had anything you could share. You can contact me at hynsonh@umd.edu. Thanks in advance!

get together
Sandy, I've been retired for a year now, and still haven't gotten back to all the things I want to do in Hanover. Let's get together after the holidays. Have a great Christmas!

Would you link William R. Stiefbold (19320047)with his wife Elsie (19320071)? I just took a picture of their grave that confirms their relationship.

Picture for Louise Smith # 93888772
Please move the picture from # 93888772 - it belongs to a different memorial.

Thank you

RE: John Wingfield Burch
Actually I just reworded the info on the death certificate. But I thought that was so sad. I can't stand all those who die too young. It was a "carbuncle on his left buttocks" but I didn't feel the need to put that info on there, ha. My guess is that he waited way too long to go get it looked at. Just my thoughts from having raised my own children thru that age! Thank you for your help on this. I wish I had a photo of him. I'll keep at that. Thanks, Betty.

RE: Thomas W. Brockenbrough
The pleasure is mine! I so agree with your views and your statements on your profile page. I too see the addition of biographical information to be enlightening. It gives the individual a "personality"...a place in life not just a place in rest. I wish everyone would post these bios, many won't and that is a shame. I have been a member of Find A Grave for several years and have seen it evolve over time. I totally disagree with those who maintain that Find A Grave is only a place to document a persons final resting place and was never meant to be for "genealogy". These people had lives, accomplishments, careers, and families and for those who come after us knowing them will make it all the more interesting and fulfilling.

I wish you the best and look forward to working with you in the future.

Sincerely,
Richard
