Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started taking photos of my family graves in Manteo Cemetery, and sort of dropped the ball. I got the bug again a couple of years ago. It bothers me that so many people have no marker other than that provided by the Funeral Home. With modern methods, those are becoming shorter-lived than wooden crosses. If we don't document the graves of those whose families can't afford a marker, or shamefully turn their backs on their dead when they can well afford one, we will lose that part of their families to generations who WILL care about them.

This is to let you know that there is a very good photographer who goes to Green-Wood Cemetery daily, whenever the weather permits.
I asked for one picture for Mary Lord, but then I ran out of picture requests for the week.
I suggest you make some more picture requests ASAP, so Bob will take the pictures you want all at once.

Martin VB White parents
Hi ... Martin Van Buren White was my great-grandfather on my maternal side. I am trying to research my ancestry for DAR and I have been searching for over a year and have yet to find any proof of Martin's parents. Yes, every family tree lists George White Jr & Nancy White but no proof. DAR will not accept census as proof of parentage. I also need proof that 'old' George is Jr's father and that he and Jr's mother were married. I have found 3 marriage bonds for old George but not for Ama/Alma/Emma/Ana/Anna ... although I have found marriage bonds for a Luda/Lydia on 23 May 1794.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Loma Vista Corrections
Hello Marreta: At this moment, I'm not sure which Adams correction you are writing about. I'm related to the Adams buried in Loma Vista, and the majority of my information comes from family records, and official records of the State of Texas.
