Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband says I spend too much time in graveyards, doing genealogy and on the computer. Maybe he's right.
My favorite cemeteries are Mount Hebron in Winchester, Virginia, and Rock Creek in Washington, D. C.

==============
- When I started contributing to Find A Grave the following was listed under FAQs:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name.

- I see that they have changed their FAQs to the following:

What are your naming conventions?
Naming conventions:
Unless the legal name contains a hyphen, punctuation, including the () and /, should not be included in the memorial name. Periods are to be used after initials, as in normal English. Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used, whether it be surname or the full name. Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any name field.

- I am adhering to what was the convention on Find A Grave when I first checked FAQs.  Rather than change over 18,000 memorials, I will stick with the original rule.

Re Lillian Wise Hunter
She was not born in 1851. Had to have been 1853 or 1854 per her first two census records plus 1851 conflicts with her brother Jerome. The 1880 census is wrong on the year; most people of the day had at least one census that had incorrect info. (Jerome's gravestone is known.)

Thank you so much for the Rambler article about connections and background with the Temple Smith home. That area around Towlston Grange, the Old Union Church and Bellview Road has a lot of fengshui. Isn't it possible that the Old Union Church is itself the remnant of Jeremiah Moore's Difficult Run Baptist church? Time to break out the historical markers.AlPol.

Rev Luther M Nesmith
Audrey,
Luther Melanethon Nesmith is, I believe, my 1st cousin 2x removed Find A Grave Memorial# 72087549

Do you or anyone else have any information about his background? My records show a Luther M Nesmith in Ohio in the 1910s.

Per newspapers.com the Ohio Nesmith was a minister, elocutionist, chiropractor and a few other shady things.

I can't imagine that there are two of them but I'd like to rule out that possibility, however remote, because he was quite a character. Thanks, Ephraim

Adding photos to yours
Hi, Audrey, I have been doing some research and am taking some photos of stones you already took, but I been foiling them to bring out the writing more clearly. I been adding them to your photos you already posted for these people. I assume you do not mind my doing so as it just clarifies what you already posted. If an issue please let me know, thanks Rich

Thanks for the clear photo. It helped me a lot and gave me an alternative possible birth date for her husband.
