Mary Beth
portrait in museum?
Hello, You have added a portrait of Sarah Whiting Stebbins to her memorial, adding "Original Photograph/Portrait in museum". This is so exciting. Sarah is my 10th great-grandmother. I would like to visit that museum. Would you please give me the name of the museum and its location? Thanks so much. Mary Beth

Lucy Tokesay Higginson Burwell Ludwell

The portrait you included on Lucy Higginson Burwell Ludwell's grave listing is not of her. It is of Lucy Randolf Burwell. The portrait is vetted by The Virginia Historical Society and is on their website.

Please consider updating.

Thank you.

David Philom Young #8339655
Hi again, Christopher,

...and thanks for your swift response! I'm wondering whether the engraving you'd uploaded is a portrait of the noted David Philom Young (1781-1852). He's buried near David Young (1705-1765) in the Hanover Presbyterian Churchyard, and is listed among Findagrave's "Famous" burials because he was an astronomer and co-founder of The Farmer's Almanac.

Best regards,

David Young #7866858
Greetings, Christopher!

I've added the date & place of birth you've suggested to David Young's page, and have credited you as the source of this info in the "Notes" section, but I do have some concerns as to whether he is the individual pictured in the engraving you've added, which shows a gentleman in early 19th Century dress, not one who lived in colonial times. Can you tell me more about David? There was no photography during his lifespan (1705-1765), and only the very wealthy could afford to have their portraits painted. Could this engraving be based on a portrait of a David Young descendant with the same name?

Thanks for your input.

What is the source of the photo you posted to the Maj. Gen? Is it really him? Great pic, I hope it is.

B D S Watkins
We researched him for years before I found a land document that totally cleared up his name...we would find him as Berryman, Beriman, Benjamin, BDS, Berryman D. S. and such. Then I found him on a BLM land document that showed his name as "Benjamin Watkins"...then the "Benjamin" was marked through and "Berryman Dela Shumate" was written in. So, it cleared up that his first name was not Benjamin and really was Berryman and finally I knew his middle names were Dela Shumate!!
