Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my new website, Peninsula Genealogy, if you have ties to the Hampton Roads area. I'm documenting obituaries, marriage, birth and death records there, and linking all obits back to findagrave so people can see additional info on their loved ones.

I have been doing my genealogy for over 13 years now. I started visiting the local cemeteries in my area looking for my relatives. By doing that, I realized how much I like to go there and how I enjoy helping others find their relatives. I am willing to do cemetery lookups in my area (Hampton, VA), so email me if need some help. Will also look up obituaries at our local library. I just love to do research!

I am currently transcribing and posting pics of cemeteries around Hampton VA. I have completed most of the smaller cemeteries (less than 1000 graves) and a few larger ones. I'm hoping by doing all this, it will make it easier for many people to find their loved ones.

My maternal grandfathers family was from MA (Mackay, Martin, McGlew, Traill)

My maternal grandmothers family was from VA, NC and PA (Gildner, Broadstreet, May, Bridgland, Smith, Arnold).

My paternal grandfathers family was from WY, NE, WI and SD (Allman, Caddy, Simons, Carberry, Rogers, Stuart)

My paternal grandmothers family was from CA, Washington, DC and OH. (Ehrmantraut, White, Gerhold, Dolph).

My husbands family is from NC and SC. (Orr, Malone, Boone, Clement, Mckay, Stewart, Vaughan Garrett, Hatchell).

Alice Smith #45704389
I'm hoping you can help me with information on Alice Smith. I put in a photo request for her grave marker, but was told it could not be found. Do you remember if this memorial was added from a visit to the cemetery or from cemetery transcripts? I'd love to be able to discover the exact location of her grave.

I believe this may be Alice, daughter of Ezra M. and Martha Johnson Smith. According to family, our Alice was born Feb. 3, 1861 in Jasper County, Iowa, and died Sept. 26, 1863 most likely also in Jasper County, as that is where census records place her parents. In the 1860 census, they were living with Daniel, Elizabeth and Steven Johnson assumed to be family to Martha. I'd love to confirm this is our Alice Smith. I'd also love to uncover more information on Ezra and Martha. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Ore's at Mountain view cemetery, WY
I see that you are working on Orr's. Are you related to the Ore's at Mountain View cemetery, Riverton, Fremont, WY?

I looked at your Orr's and I couldn't see a connection between the two. The Ore's above are originally from Missouri, went to Neb and onto WY.

If you do not have a connection would it be possible to transfer them to me. They are not directly related but are in my family and it would be easier to add info if I didn't have to go through someone.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you so much for doing the research and putting a link to his 1935 obituary. Your kindness has solved a 10 year mystery for our family! Many thanks for everything you have done on this site.
