Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also.

Check out if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.

Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more.

I welcome all additions, connections, corrections or changes and transfers so please feel free to contact me.

CONTACT ME FOR GENEALOGICAL HIRE for research, especially in VA/MD/PA, through any of my memorials.

Please send REQUESTS for CORRECTIONS, CHANGES OR TRANSFERS through the EDIT feature on the specific memorial (top right).

Please let me know if you catch my errors, I missed them. Mea maxima culpa

Ron Norwood
Capt Alexander Telford, Memorial# 107806124
"On 11 Aug 1756, he served in the French and Indian war in the Augusta Co. Militia, under Samuel Norwood. Norwood records a list of his men in his company, including Alexander Telford."

Do you have a copy of this list?

John G Hamilton in Graceland
You may be interested in the plot I found for John G and Hannah Grigsby Hamilton of Rockbridge Va in Graceland. The plot also includes Elizabeth Jane Grigsby, William Talliaferro Hamilton, and Reuben and Virginia Hamilton Chandler. Please check out their memorials. I also think I can get better pictures of Leander McCormick and the Shields families with the right sunlight conditions (There are alot of trees and shrubs around them) . Regards, Bob Lerch

RE: Mary S Laird
Jim wrote me last night about John C Laird, and I realized he was right on that one, so I added my pic of the stone to your memorial and deleted my memorial, which was newer than yours. I went through the rest of the cemetery, looking to see if I had made any other mistakes like that, but didnt see any. But, I will go look at Mary and see whats what and fix it if necessary.
Thanks, LC

Wilford Lyons Hardesty
I am the granddaughter of Mary Alice Hardesty (Costello) I have my Great Grandmother's bible listing Wilford as her husband/daughters father. I have been unable to find any marriage records or Nanny's (Mary Alice) Birth Records. I am thankful for the information on the wedding dates. Do you know where they were married? (I am assuming Laurel or Calvert County, I was actually born in Prince Frederick County)

RE: Stuart Swain Brown
My mistake. It was right there, I guess I just overlooked it. Thank you!!

RE: L. Tinges
I used the references given such as "old plot 5" and names on nearby graves. There are many graves with these same family names so that's not much help. I didn't find any grave for his wife either, so they are apparently unmarked.

RE: Harvey and Dorothy Hardesty
You're quite welcome. You should also change the cemetery from "Unknown" to Loudon Park Cemetery.

Note that another user, "cbb", who requested photos for some of the Hardesty family, has created memorials for some other members of the family who are buried in the same plot, particularly Dorothy's parents, William and Minnie James, as well as Harvey Jr's wife Edith.

RE: Glebe Cemetery, Augusta, VA

Thank you for your quick reply. This weekend we were passing through and thought we would take a chance to stop by. I will contact the Historical Society before my next visit to the area.

Thanks again,
