Bio and Links
Bio Photo My father was born and raised in Rockingham County, Virginia -- as were many generations of his ancestors. My passion to discover his roots has led to digging deeply into old dusty records to bring my ancestors to life and put flesh on their bones. . . . to know more than just names and dates, but to know them and their challenges. I have authored two books of stories, photos and genealogy of my father's family. My family names include Hensley, Maiden, Meadows, Gardner, Smith, Baugher, Eppard, Moyer, Berry, Broyles, Yager, Clore, Cave, Sampson, Keyser and Wyant.

Charles W. Dovel # 50494703
Charles Wesley Dovel (1892-1914) was my GG grandfather.

My grandmother (Rosie M. Snyder) also told me the story of his unfortunate drowning, not long after he married my GG grandmother Edna Mae Hensley.

Thank you for creating this record of him and for all of the other work you have done to record the history of so many of my relatives in Virginia.

RE: Biedler
Jan, I don't understand why you want the Biedler photo removed from the L.L. Brubaker memorial when Brubaker's name and dates of birth and death are shown on that one stone. I do not think there is a separate marker for him, except for the marker (no dates) which I also posted with his name on top.

It appears Mary Biedler Brubaker is the sister of Lester L. Biedler and the wife of Lester L. Brubaker and all three names appear on the memorial stone.

I'm sorry I don't understand.

Beidler, Brubaker
I'm sorry I looked at those dates wrong. I realized it as soon as I hit ENTER. Sorry.

It seems there are three names on the marker:
Lester L. Biedler 81917813
Lester L. Brubaker 88231165
Mammie I. Brubaker 123324931

I also got confused with the spelling of Mamie or Mammie.

RE: Jacob Bear
Thanks for letting me know. I thought I had it figured out, based on what I dug up. There were at least 3 different men around the same time in the area by the same name. A Rev., the Col. and a Magistrate. Back to the drawing board.

RE: Esther Earle
Thanks for the smile!

Do you want the magazine? I will gladly mail it to you. I put it aside waiting to hear from you. I am cleaning out a closet and it is going in the trash.
