Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Richmond, VA, many, many years ago, I grew up in Roanoke, VA. Over the years since finishing school there, I've lived in Richmond, Montreal, Chapel Hill, NC, Columbia, SC, and Farmville, VA. Thirty-two years ago, I returned to Roanoke to work temporarily and never left. I've been interested in genealogy for about 15 years. Most of the genealogy I do now is in the areas where my forebears lived: Rockingham County, NC, Prince Edward County, VA, Mecklenburg County, VA, and areas close to and in between them. Roanoke is an ideal place to live in order to work in those areas. There is no better way than Findagrave to get family connections online for family and friends to see.

RE: Julia Crowder
I temporarily posted Julia Ann Creedle Crowder's death certificate so you could complete the updates I suggested to complete her memorial. In addition, I posted the request for her husband's military stone on his memorial. It give his death date and full name. I took his birth date and location from census and his wedding register. If you have any other concerns regarding information for this couple's memorial, please drop me a note. When the memorials are updated, I will remove the supporting documents from the memorial. I hope this is helpful.

RE: Julia Crowder
Julia's parents were Bryant and Martha H Drumwright Creedle, married in Mecklenburg, Va. on 24 Feb 1834. Just in case you did not have it on file.

RE: Julia Crowder
I do not know the burial location of the parents. My interest in the family was to understand a bit more about her two sister's who married two brothers, Lowry Lee Andrews and Francis G Andrews of Lunenburg. I happened to bull death and marriage certificates to gather the family, birth and death information. Wish I could be of more help.

I was mainly looking for the residence of Sarah G Creedle's daughter Jean Geneva "Genie Green" Andrews throughout her life. She lived with Julia Ann Creedle Crowder for a period.

I'm just trying to find out if any male Shelton from David V Shelton have had a DNA test. I'm a couple of years behind in research

James Buchanan "Bud" Fagg, Sr

I am researching an old carte de viste for a "Jack Fagg". The ancestors who saved this lived in the Roanoke area. he appears to be 18-20 years old [possibly in college?], dressed inexpensively. Are you related to the Fagg family? I didn't know if this might be related to your group. Let me know and i can email image.

Grandpa Charlie's mother
I am yet to add a grave for grandad's mother who died in 18844 and her burial spot is unknown, though I think it could be in an unmarked grave at the Royster Cemetery in Halifax Co. I will notify you when I add one.
