Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my new website, Peninsula Genealogy, if you have ties to the Hampton Roads area. I'm documenting obituaries, marriage, birth and death records there, and linking all obits back to findagrave so people can see additional info on their loved ones.

I have been doing my genealogy for over 13 years now. I started visiting the local cemeteries in my area looking for my relatives. By doing that, I realized how much I like to go there and how I enjoy helping others find their relatives. I am willing to do cemetery lookups in my area (Hampton, VA), so email me if need some help. Will also look up obituaries at our local library. I just love to do research!

I am currently transcribing and posting pics of cemeteries around Hampton VA. I have completed most of the smaller cemeteries (less than 1000 graves) and a few larger ones. I'm hoping by doing all this, it will make it easier for many people to find their loved ones.

My maternal grandfathers family was from MA (Mackay, Martin, McGlew, Traill)

My maternal grandmothers family was from VA, NC and PA (Gildner, Broadstreet, May, Bridgland, Smith, Arnold).

My paternal grandfathers family was from WY, NE, WI and SD (Allman, Caddy, Simons, Carberry, Rogers, Stuart)

My paternal grandmothers family was from CA, Washington, DC and OH. (Ehrmantraut, White, Gerhold, Dolph).

My husbands family is from NC and SC. (Orr, Malone, Boone, Clement, Mckay, Stewart, Vaughan Garrett, Hatchell).

Ore's at Mountain view cemetery, WY
I see that you are working on Orr's. Are you related to the Ore's at Mountain View cemetery, Riverton, Fremont, WY?

I looked at your Orr's and I couldn't see a connection between the two. The Ore's above are originally from Missouri, went to Neb and onto WY.

If you do not have a connection would it be possible to transfer them to me. They are not directly related but are in my family and it would be easier to add info if I didn't have to go through someone.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you so much for doing the research and putting a link to his 1935 obituary. Your kindness has solved a 10 year mystery for our family! Many thanks for everything you have done on this site.

James Arnold Branch obituary
You posted that you had a copy of James Arnold Branch's obituary. If so, I'd love to see a copy. :)

I never met Mr. Branch; but his wife Juanita later married my half-brother. Together they had three children, the oldest of whom died during infancy from pneumonia in 1975. They would later divorce and she married a third time to Charles Johnson (also of North Carolina); but all three of them have passed away now (Juanita as of two years ago). Her oldest daughter Linda posts an occasional floral tribute, but hasn't been that active on Find A Grave. I am not sure of her contact information.

Henry Hansford Roane
Hi Dawn,

I've just sent in an edit for this man's name because it is listed that way in his son's obituary and in some of the census records----but not in all of the census records.

So it is confusing if his name was supposed to be Henry Hansford or Hansford Henry Roane.

I'm going to be connecting them to their son, Bernard O. Roane, in whose obit the father is listed as Henry Hansford Roane.

Thank you,

Barbara Burt

Lucy Cooper/Potoczky

I fullfilled the request for Lucy Potoczky with a phot of the headstone for Lucy Cooper. I walked the cemetery 3 times and could not find a headstone for Lucy Potoczky
