|I've been working on my and my husband's family trees for over thirty years. A big part of that, of course, has always been wandering through the woods searching for abandoned graveyards. [Biggest phobia = deer hunters.] When I get frustrated I switch over to working on those of in-laws and friends, just for variety. I love to get emails or messages about the families I work on and am not at all sensitive about corrections or challenges to my interpretations. |
I'm very grateful to FindAGrave for providing an opportunity to honor those who have gone before us. I'm always glad to transfer memorials to those who are more closely related to a person than I or my husband are, and of course many of my memorials are of non-relatives for whom it would be nice to find interested family.

|The Goldens||Edward F. Golden|
Hello! Wow! We were so glad to see your memorial for Edward. Are you related to him? He is our cousin 2x removed and kind of the long lost remaining family member. We didn't know that he had come back to Missouri till we found his death certificate, kind of by accident. Then we got the infamous "leaf" on ancestry.com that led us to his memorial.
How did you find out that he was buried at Calvary?
I'm going to get busy and send you some edits for linking him to his family. Would love to hear from you!

MOSES GREER [1744 – 1834] . . .
Moses Greer began his life in the colony of Maryland on 2 June 1744 as the son of William Greer Sr. and his wife Mary Ann Fitch of Baltimore County, Maryland. The next milestone in his life was in January 1765 when he took Miss Ann Nancy Bailey as his wife. She was the daughter of Thomas and Ann Bailey from Prince Georges County, Maryland. Their union would bring eleven children.
Sometime before the Revolutionary War the young couple moved to Bedford County in the backcountry of Virginia. Citizen Greer was one of the original petitioners for the new county of Franklin to be formed from Henry and Bedford Counties. He attended the first session of the Franklin County court on 2 January 1786 and was one of the first three Justices of the County Court.
About the time the Greers settled in Bedford County, the idea of separating the colonies from England was making its rounds and eventually the idea took hold and developed into a war against British tyranny. Moses Greer stepped up to the cause and, as Captain of the Militia , served six months under Colonel James Callaway. During that tour of duty, he was stationed at the lead mines in Grayson County, Virginia. On 28 October 1780, he was commissioned Lieutenant and went on to serve two tours of three months each. He also served in Colonel Charles Lynch's and Colonel William Leftwich's Virginia Regiments and was on the march to Yorktown when the British surrendered. His service totaled two years.
During his long and fruitful life in Franklin County, Moses Greer was a successful businessman, surveyor, farmer, landowner and politician. He first represented the citizens of Franklin County in the Virginia state legislature, then as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates. It should be noted that Moses Greer was a Jeffersonian Republican, and as such was an elected delegate from Franklin County to the Convention of the Legislature of Virginia. This convention of 93 members of the Legislature of Virginia met in Richmond for the purpose of framing a Republican Ticket to be submitted to the freeholders of Virginia at the ensuing election of electors in 1800 to choose a President and Vice President. This convention appointed men from each County to carry on a campaign for these electors in their respective county.
Moses Greer lived a life long and full; he died on 10 May 1834 at the age of 90.
He is buried next to his wife at the Greer family cemetery in Gogginsville, Franklin County, Virginia.
|Wade Falwell||Elizabeth Falwell|
My name is Wade. I think I've talked to you about some of the family in the past. I am getting back into the Virginia Falwell family again lately and was wondering about your source for Elizabeth Falwell. I think she is the wife of James Falwell. Do you know if this is true?
|Brent A||RE: William P. Spear at Stones River Natl Cemetery|
Bev, It has been a long time. I cannot remember if I ever clarified this info for you on William Spear, from Ohio.
The Stones River National Cemetery record is as follows;
"DIED AT READYVILLE, TN; INFO FROM ROLL OF HONOR OF OHIO SOLDIERS; NO GRAVE IN CEMETERY"
The WILLIAM SPEAR listed on the record is for a soldier from Missouri also named WILLIAM P|SPEAR, who died in Columbia, TN and is buried in grave
#J‐4039. Notations alongside this grave listing state that this may be WILLIAM D SPENCER, (wrong name on gravestone) also from Missouri.
I hope this clarifies the long standing question for you.
I will make no excuses, but life has also been busy for me.
I promise to be much more prompt in the future.
I PRAY YOU ARE ENJOYING A WONDERFUL 4TH OF JULY.

Thanks for the photo of James Catlett's marker.
|William Kemery||Solomon & Nancy 3rd Great Grandparents|
Thank you for sharing information on my great grandparents. I was happy to find your post with concise information. It is nice to find genealogical information that confirms my own findings. I have been searching desperately for pictures from the Kemery Lineage. Please contact me if you can assist me or if you have any questions regarding the Kemery Lineage.
|Lesley S Alwaise||Frank Payne Sebree|
correction on what I said about Alice Smith Sebree and Sam Sebree's son Frank being buried in the same cemetery as Sam. That was Sam's father. The obituary of Frank Sebree the son who died last year says that his ashes will be mixed with his wife Mary Ann's, who died in 2012, and scattered in a remote mountain area.
