Married to Ben. Hobbies are genealogy, photography, scrapbooking, reading. I'm a retired social worker so believe strongly in family connections and enjoy meeting new cousins or helping people new to genealogy get started. I feel that finding the final resting place of our ancestors gives some closure to our searches. Because my husband and I are both retired we are free to travel around and take photos, but with current gas prices would need to limit our territory at times. Will be glad to make transfers to relatives of those memorials I've posted.
leigh ann thanks for the quick response did your husband ever have any Higginbotham relatives from va? There were some that had married into out family through the Bayly family of Va and lived in Richmond and Charlottesville?
lee ann Hi I am trying to get a message to your friend Lee Ann who has been researching the Withers family in Virginia. I came across info that she posted on the Withers family graves at "Locust Grove" in Dinwiddie County in Virginia. I used to own the John Grammer House in Petersburg Va. and did extensive research on the family and would love to share all the info on the family who married into the Withers family. I have been looking for the real descendants of John Grammer and believe that she is one of them..if you would be so kind to forward this to her, I'd be most appreciative. There are many things that I found out about them and have been trying to unravel them for years and find a true descendant. Thank you if you can get this message to her as she has disabled her message board.
photo Arthur Pennington III You have added a photo of the tombstone of Arthur Pennington Jr. to the memorial of Arthur Pennington III. I have added the correct photo but thought you might want to remove the incorrect one.
Sarah Jane Whatley Story Laura, Saw that you could possibly be a descendant of Sarah Jane Whatley Story. Sara Jane is the sister to my 2nd Great Grandfather Byrd Woodward Whatley. B.1852 d. 1933.
Interested in making these connections as asking if you have any other information regarding Sara Jane and Byrd's parents and earlier. I have some of my greataunts bible records that list their Mother as NANCY JANE LOYD (as does Sara Janes death record) but all links on ancestry point to a MARTHA STRONG or NANCY STRONG. Wondering if I am following this line correctly. Thank you for your work in adding this memorial and look forward to hearing from you!
Higginbotham's in Blount County Laura, I saw the photo you added with some information on Melissa Alabama Gentle Higginbotham, wife of P.W. Higginbotham, buried in Remalap, Alabama. In your notes it lists their adopted son, Albert Preston, biological son of Malissa's brother Clint. I am a direct descendant of Albert, and am looking for information to verify his parentage as Clint and ???? Would you have any information on that?
Lucinda Wyatt and Wm Meredith Hi Laura, You are listed as the one who maintains Lucinda Wyatt's grave posting. How do we list her as the sister of Rev. William Hoge Meredith? If I recall Lucinda had 15 children. Sincerely, Diana Rocci
