Bio and Links
Bio Photo I inherited by interest in genealogy from my mother, Doris Sue Spence Fontaine (Memorial # 83062091). Growing up, a Sunday afternoon ride through the country usually included a cemetery visit which I affectionately call a cemetery hop.

A few years ago I decided to make her handwritten or typed pages into an electronic format after encouragement from family and friends. In many instances, she left behind clues for me to follow in my adventures today.

You are welcome to use any of the photos that have been posted to the memorials. I would appreciate if you would kindly give me credit for my efforts when using them.

Happy Hunting!
Martha

It was his dying wish that all members of his family remain close through the ages and to aid one another in times of strife. From his wishes was formed The Fontaine-Maury Society which today is an active thriving organization whose mission is to strengthen the family bonds of the Fontaine and Maury families.

RE: Janet Boyd - East End Cemetery
I have confirmed that she was a daughter of Mary and Robert Withers so it would make since that she would be buried with them since her second husband , Waller Boyd was buried with the mother of all his children in Roseland, VA.

RE: Janet Boyd - East End Cemetery
What evidence is there that she is even buried there. The other Boyd's there have no close connection to her husband's family.
It is likely that with numerous Withers daughters that she was buried in her father's plot. Thanks

RE: Janet Boyd - East End Cemetery
Since she only died in 1945 any headstone available should be legible. Do you thing that there is in fact no headstone there? Even if illegible it would be worth posting.

RE: Robert Bing
PS. Since you are friends with Beulah, perhaps you can find some out some of the missing information from her parents and siblings memorials such as birth location, death location, full name, etc. Thanks!

J Alexandria (#99173678) & Tobitha (#99175862) are my great grandparents. Their daughter, Dora Ellen Mabe Edwards is my grandmother. If you aren't particularly attached to their memorials I would be thrilled if you would transfer them to me. Thanks so much for your consideration.

Thank you for her obituary and burial info. Hopefully, someone can now find her gravestone and her husband's gravestone so a photo can be posted to Find A Grave.

Hello Martha,

After entering this grave of Harry and Maude gearing, I did an ancestry search and found your entry with burial location unknown. So, I thought you might want to know about this. Is it the same person? Are you related? I am not... Let me know what you would like me to do, i.e. transfer to you, delete, etc.

All the best, -Hal
