Bio and Links
Born, raised, and still reside in the Martinsville-Henry County area of VA, 50 miles south of Roanoke, VA and 50 miles north of Greensboro, NC. I became familiar with findagrave while doing ancestry research on my own family which, in addtion to Mitchells, includes Bratchers, Scales, Jerkins/Judkins, Metts, Oldfield, Lord, Comins, McCartney, Holman, Scott, Lane, Hayes, Bowden & Lowery. There was so much invaluable information gained from the findagrave site that I decided I'd try to help out other people trying to discover their own roots. As a bonus I've learned a lot of history about and seen a lot of my home county that I had not seen before.

Just a note to let you know that I sent you an e-mail with photos attached. Probably will go to your junk folder.

RE: Covington Cemetery
to transfer a person's memorial from one cemetery to another just click on edit burial.
then delete the cemetery name in the box and type in the new cemetery name.

Covington Cemetery
I had already added this cemetery to findagrave. so all the Covington's in the Burgess cemetery need to be deleted OR added to the Covington cemetery. thanks.
(you may have added some that I had not added)

RE: Davis Burgess
take a poker of some sort. when you see an empty space where a grave should be, poke it in the ground. I found a stone 6 inches deep one time. at first I used my fireplace poker, then I used a piece of rebar which worked much better.

RE: Davis Burgess
thank you. and don't forget to remove the part about Davis Burgess' stone being a rock.
(under my photo requests)
