Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Richmond, Virginia area and have been taking gravestone photos for over 3 years after I discovered what a great tool a digital camera is for that kind of work. I am trying to photograph as many of the cemetries as I can in the area. I also take my camera whenever I travel and and usually end up with photos from some distant cemeteries.

I am the volunteer coordinator for the clean up of East End Cemetery in Richmond. Please contact me if you are interested in helping with the clean up effort.

The vast majority of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like a copy of the original picture, let me know and I will be glad to email it to you.

If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. I will be glad to do that.

Please request transfers and updates/corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.

Note that much of the CSA related info for burials at Hollywood Cemetery was provided by Scott Hutchinson.

John

Wier Neck Cemetery - Surry Co., VA
John,

You posted two cemetery photos to the cemetery header page of this cemetery. Unfortunately, the second photograph is actually of Davis Cemetery which sits directly beside Wier Neck Cemetery. Could you delete that photo to make the record correct?

I would appreciate your help.

I have a Charles G. K. Harris in my family tree, that has a brother Kelly Y. C. Harris. Wondering if the K has been mistakenly added as Kelly?

Anna Capitaine Harrison
John

I added an edit regarding her date of birth. I found an 1850 census. Showing both Anna age 1 and her brother John H age 3.

Also her father was listed as John H Capitaine born in Switzerland and aged 34. Also found his death record 8/1/1878. He died in RVA but there was no indication as to where he was buried. And I could not locate a John H Capitaine anywhere in Find A Grave with his presumed dates. ~1816 - 1878.

Have a great day,

Find A Grave Memorial# 82061907
Thank you for creating this memorial for Nelle. I am going to be submitting some edits for her after leaving this message but I wanted to A. Thank you for creating this memorial for her and B. Let you know that despite what the photo of her grave stone indicates her middle initial was actually E. not an R. She was recored on the 1900 and 1910 census records as Nellie E. Richeson with her parents and also on the 1940 census - with her 2nd husband - as Nelle E. Ottesen, wife of Kanstrup Ottesen. So on three of her five census records she was recorded as Nellie E. The other two simply listed her as Nellie or Nells.
