Bio and Links
Bio Photo My main interest is in the Confederate Section of Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. With there being more than 2,200 soldiers resting there from all of the states of the Confederacy, the labor of love will continue for quite some time. So many of these men left home to never be heard from again. I am often times humbled walking around in this section. The staggering number of young and old men whose families have no idea where they are. I get the greatest feeling of elation when a current family member finds one of these men and the circle is closed when they are back with family. I owe the greatest debt of gratitude for member LJH who has helped me numerous times in correctly identifying the men.

*Please do not post death certificates on any of my memorials.*

If you are a family member to anyone of the memorials I have posted, I will not hesitate transferring the memorial over to your care. That is why I do this. All I ask is that you please use some tact when requesting a transfer or making a suggestion for an edit.

If you have a better quality photo of any grave marker than the ones I have posted on my memorials, please post it. If not, please don't post it. Thank you. I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

Thank you for finding and posting William's gravestone in the Big Island Cemetery. I have been researching him as he was my great, great grandfather. I thought he must have died in Big Island as he was receiving a Civil War pension there and suddenly it stopped in 1903. How did you ever come across it?

Again, my thanks!

Thanks for trying to get Lucile Dalton picture.
You said she is beside her parents in an unmarked grave. Do you happen to remember who they were so I can request a link for her? I appreciate all the hard work you do.

Patteson, Henrietta Temple "Hennie"
Darrell, thanks so much for the nice clear photo of Hennie's headstone. Would you also give your permission for me to post a copy to the page I have for her on I'm happy to credit you as photographer and donor. If you'd rather not see it there I understand.

A short life leaves few records and documenting her burial photographically is a big help. For me she's only a distant cousin but she did have a child and direct (and indirect) descendants who find her Findagrave page will be happy to see your work, I'm sure.

RE: Fort Hill photo requests
I will see what I can find out from the cemetery office and let you know. Do you know their phone number as I live in California now. I use to live in Pamplin, Appomattox County, Virginia. Thanks, Henry

Thanks so much Darrell for the photo. Appreciate the photo to at least show where he is buried even though there is no marker at his grave. Thanks, Henry
