Bio and Links
Bio Photo I volunteered as a photographer the very first time I entered this website because I thought the whole concept was a great idea! I've found helping folks document their ancestors and preserve deteriorating cemeteries to be a very worthwhile use of my spare time.

However, I am sad to inform you all that I am no longer able to take cemetery photo requests and I have also moved from the Southside Virginia area. It was a joy to do it when I could!! I see sooo many more volunteers are now involved and the site has become much more technical (for my aging brain) than it was years ago.. Bless you all. It's a good thing!

My root family includes Watkins, Jones, McLemore, Dickens, Majors, and Ragland -- located initially in Southside Virginia and Roxboro, NC.

Marty Hiatt
Jabes Adams in Leemont Cemetery
Barb,
I realize these people are not your family, so I don't know where you found names of children, perhaps from census schedules. Those didn't tell you that Jabez had two wives. Are you inclined to correct the names, if I send them to you? Sorry to say, I can't tell you where all of the children are buried, but I have found both wives' names and dates of death. I can attach children to their mother's by the dates when the first wife died & Jabez md. his 2nd wife.

Please reply through regular email.

Yours truly,

Ms. Marty Hiatt, martyhiatt@gmail.com

Arlene Stovall ~ Mount Calvary
Hello Barb. I was looking around Virginia for bogus cemeteries, it's what I do. They always stand out because they only have one or two memorials and no location map. And I noticed THIS one. There's no Mount Calvary Cemetery in Halifax. If you read the obit you posted, they're talking about Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Brookneal; Brookneal is in Campbell County which borders Halifax County to the north. THIS is most likely the cemetery where (obit says) Arlene was buried. You can move your memorial there quite easily, using the Burial: [Edit] tool, found above the cemetery name. No offense, not my concern at all, I'm truly just trying to be helpful.

County Line Baptist Church Halifax County, Va
September 5, 2015

This Findagrave site.

There are two County Line Churches and Cemeteries on Chatham Road. I have been working on my family tree and I have a lot of ancestors buried in the Java location.
I talked with a man that has lived on Chatham Road, Vernon Hill, Va...all his life... and attended the County Line Baptist Church, on the Pittsylvania and Halifax County line, 13142 Chatham Road, all his life.
He said this is the correct address for both of the County Line Churches.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
County Line Baptist Church and Cemetery
Very close to the Halifax and Pittsylvania County Line
13142 Chatham Rd

Pittsylvania and Halifax County Line
Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Otis R. Dillard, Pastor

I hope everyone will understand this information

Pounds Family Cemetery
Hi Barb, I will be visiting the Halifax area from Los Angeles and wanted to visit the Pounds Family Cemetery to pay my respects to a dear friend. Is the cemetery located somewhere off Old Grubby Road and is there any mile marker from a highway intersection I could use to locate?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

David G.

James Green Watkins
Barb, would you know if there is a headstone for James Green Watkins born 1908 Danville, Va. and died 1964 North Carolina. Death register (familysearch) says he is buried in Green Hill Cemetery, Danville. Also he had a wife by the name of Juanita Womble Watkins. Thanks, Debbie
