Bio and Links
Bio Photo So Many Ancestors....So Little Time..
I was born in N.C. a long time ago and have lived in VA. for quite some time.
I enjoy researching civil war soldiers and their families and live in the Heart of the Confederacy.
I enjoy painting with acrylics, especially Old Homeplaces..Beach Scenes..Old Depots, any OLD buildings and such!
I have been Following the Periwinkle in Henry County, VA. and surrounding areas for over 25 years and have enjoyed every minute. :O)
There are many soldiers in my virtual Confederate Cemetery here on Findagrave.
If I can help you with anything, please feel free to ask me.
If you want me to transfer a memorial Please Include Your Findagrave # and go to Edit and ask me there.
I want to thank all the people that have helped me with my research over the years.
Two are Laura Rust and Eugene Landreth who helped my Mom and I when we first started our quest in the 1980s.
The "stories" are what make our ancestors on findagrave come alive once more.

To Forget Ones Ancestors Is To Be A Brook Without A Source, A Tree Without A Root.....

Dear Ancestor,
YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST
NEGLECTED AND ALONE
THE NAME AND DATE HAVE WORN OFF
THE WEATHERED MARBLE STONE
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE.
IT'S NOW TOO LATE TO MOURN
YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT I'D EXIST
YOU DIED....AND I WAS BORN
YET EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU
IN FLESH, IN BLOOD, IN BONE.
OUR HEARTS CONTRACT AND BEAT A PULSE
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED
SOME HUNDRED YEARS AGO
SPREADS OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO
I WONDER HOW YOU LIVED AND LOVED.
I WONDER IF YOU KNEW
THAT SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS PLACE
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.....

Find A Grave gives us an "Unknown" choice for burials or cremations, etc. and if it's a known fact that these people are dead, and they will most likely never be officially linked to any particular burial place, they also have a right to be remembered and to be linked to their other family members.
I will gladly link those who have an unknown status.
That can easily be changed if they are proved to be in any particular place.
They were somebody too, and deserve to be remembered.
If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send!
If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)

RE: peter gilbert photo
I forgot Find A Grave does not say they have to be legible. If you don't believe me read it.

RE: peter gilbert photo
Who died and made you boss of Find A Grave?
I fixed the picture of the death certificate and if you do not want me to put pictures on graves that are local to me, quit making request in this area. I was trying to be nice to you, we even went out one night last week just to take a couple of pictures you requested.
And yes you ask for the moon when you want a legible picture of a tombstone that is not legible. And Find A Grave does not say it has to be legible. Look it up.
And again I was not trying to fill your request.

NO I will not remove the picture.

RE: Old Mayodan Municipal Cemetery, Mayodan, Rockingham County, North Carolina
Thank you, but if a better photo could be gotten, I'm sure Timmy would have gotten one. As for close ups of trees, the shape of the stone is what we went for. You are making us look like poor photographers to the other Find A Grave photographers in our area. A lot of these people we see on a regular basis at Genalogical meetings. How would you feel?
Oh, Timmy use to take pictures for the Highway Patrol before he retired. They were good enough for the NCSHP.
Thanks for putting the entries from books on Find A Grave. Too bad they don't come with pictures.

RE: dalton cemetery
Hey Dee,
Another Find A grave contributer had a good idea about this Church/Family cemetery. He's leaving his in the Church Cemetery so no one else will come along and put them there again. And I'm leaving mine in the Dalton family cemetery and everybody's happy.
