Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other ante-bellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

George B. Charnock
Hi George,

I don't know where I got the date of birth of George Charnock as October 18th. I think I made a mistake. I would go by the gravestone with says October 30th.

The Elms
My profound appreciation to you for posting a photograph of "The Elms" - home of Dr. Thomas Holloway Kinney and his family; which was the site of a major skirmish during the Battle of Hanover Court House. The attached caption on the photo about the history of the home is very interesting and will be valued by his ancestors for years to come.

George, your incredible contributions here at Find-a-Grave are helping people like me research our ancestors. ~ George Gaston

Sorry George,
I have no idea which house it is. I got my information from a p/o in the genealogy library.
