Bio and Links
Bio Photo I currently live in the Richmond, Virginia area. I have been researching since about 1991. I recently started adding photographs to my research.

I enjoy walking old cemeteries and documenting the grave stones for families requesting such information and also to preserve in history the head stones of our lost generations. There are so many grave markers that are unreadable and unknown to the future generations. Once lost, they are lost forever and unknown to future generations and families.

I also have taken the task of documenting as many veterans as possible. They served our country and need not be forgotten, but saved for future generations to remember.

Francoise Derieux Ligon
Greetings, I am grateful to you for creating a memorial page (with photo!) for Francoise Derieux Ligon, sister to my 2nd great-grandfather. Would you consider a transfer to me? I'm actively researching the Derieux family and can create a bio for her and link to her father. She is Find A Grave Memorial# 59368408. Many thanks, Amy (member no. #47373263)

Johnny Dale Daniels
It appears that I made a duplicate memorial for Johnny in a Rose Lawn Memorial Gardens in Missouri.
I thought that before I deleted mine you might want the obit from the dupe to add to yours.
He is not related to me, it was a time that I just just entering from obits and chose the wrong cemetery.
Memorial # 33013006.

Hello Gate Keeper,

Thank you for listing Co D, 2nd Virginia Battalion. Is there any genealogy information in those records and how do I get a copy of his service? Thanks! Cheryl
