Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Emporia, Va., 3 doors down from Emporia Cemetery. Maybe that is why I enjoy searching cemeteries. My wife think I need help. Whenever we are on vaction or traveling I always stop at least one cemetery. She sleeps late on Saturdays so I take that time to grave hunt in Greensville, Southampton, Brunswick, Sussex Counties. And I even venture down into North Carolina on occasion.

On a recent escapade I found a old forgotten family cemetery with two obvious graves. After researching the family, I felt there must be more graves. After scratching around in about 7 inches of ivy and moss that had been collecting for about 80 years, I discovered two more stones that had turned over and were buried in vines. I wouldn't have been more excited if I had struck gold. I am a sick man!

Please do not hesitate to send corrections. Write me at or send a public message.

Please visit my father, Jack and mother, Virginia and grandparents from their links.

I am especially interested in the Ivey's, Ferguson's, and Mitchells in Greensville and Brunswick Counties of Va. and the Pittmans and the Armstrongs in Nash and Edgecombe counties of North Carolina.

God Bless you and Happy Hunting

Thanks for helping me find my grandmother! I never met her as she died right after I was born and I'd love to know if there's a maiden name on her headstone as I've hit a roadblock on
You mentioned in your profile you lived close to Greensville Memorial Cemetery where she is. Also, her grandson is buried there, Gordon Andrew Bogdan who died very young. Any pics of his gravestone would be appreciated as well!
Thanks in advance to my request & bless you for helping so many find their families!

RE: Newitt Harris Ferguson
Thank you Buck ... I misspoke didn't I? (= Was hoping you might know where Francis and Francine are buried ... On my way to John and Mary's graves this Saturday and thought if Francis and Francine were floe I'd get by there as well. Thank you for the information. Have some more pictures I'll be adding as well for the Harrell family. Thank you again!

Would also like to know where the George C. Robinson Cemetery is there in Greenville too if you happen to know. He is my Great Great Great Grandfather (=

Newitt Harris Ferguson
Hi Buck ... I am a great great grandson of Newitt and his wife Mary. I believe Newitt's parents were Francis Ferguson and his wife Francine Ingram Ferguson. Do you happen to know where Francis and Francine are buried? I am headed to Newitt and Mary's grave sites at Forest Hill Baptist Church this Saturday (12/13/14) and thought if Newitt's parents were close by I would stop by their graves as well. Thank you!

Pearl Weaver
The only information I have on her is from her granddaughter. She did Pearl's line. It says she was married to William on April 4, 1906. William was my great grandfather. I was told that she was buried at Trinity Memorial Gardens on 460. I have been out there many many times looking for her memorial but have yet to find it. If I knew what her death date was I might could find her obit on microfilm at the clerk's office. If I find anything I will let you know.

I saw your memorial for Flora May Cook Conwell and wondered if you knew anything about her. I ask, as I am desperately searching to link a Flora Cook from Campbellsville, Ky. as she is my husband's grandmother. Anything you can tell would be appreciated.
