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.

http://peninsulagenealogy.wordpress.com/


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).

RE: Drummond cemetery, Hampton
I did a map search, a basic info search on the Drummond family via Google, and then contacted the Hampton Historical Society. They were more than helpful, they were able to describe how to get there.

Best directions I can give:

If you're coming in from Mercury Blvd, you'll need to turn left onto Fox Hill Rd. Follow it around, just past Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. On the left hand side is Harris Creek Rd. Continue on Harris Creek Rd for a bit (sorry, mileage I didn't write down). The road will narrow substantially, with marsh on both sides. It is a 2 direction road, but passing can be tight. You're going to turn right on Finn's Point Lane. It is a dirt road, and I believe there are No Trespassing signs posted. You're going to see a small house on the right, with a trimmed lawn, and well maintained trees. Stop in there, that's the gentleman I've spoken to before. Just let him know you'd like to see the Cemetery. He's very helpful, and can tell you quite a bit about some of the different burials (many have no name).

Hope that helps.

Re: John Allison Maddox Memorial #88171021
Hello Dawn,
I received a message concerning a photo request for my relative, John Allison Maddox, from you today. There is a grave marker already on John's memorial, that Ron Stewart placed there in April. However, it only has John's first name and middle name on the marker. I wanted to know if there is a "Maddox" family marker also located at the gravesite for John and his wife?? I put a note with my photo request, specifiying that I wanted to know about the family marker?
Thanks for getting back to me at your earliest convenience.
Debbie R.

Thanx for the heads-up on Carolyn Ebanks - I have marked the page that there is no memorial - sad that!

Thank you, R. L Rathbone
Thank you again so much for the information, I had looked high and low for. Before my Uncle R.L and his son Harold passed away we very close to him and his family. Unfortunately as the older members of family pass away contact between the younger ones becomes less.
Sincerely,

janet
