|Bio and Links|
|Since 2006 I have been unraveling the story of the John Wesley Hooker family from the Buffalo Ridge section of Patrick County, Virginia. He and his wife Margaret Akers raised 13 children. The quest has taken me to many libraries, court houses and grave yards. The distant relatives, that I have met along the way are the true treasures of the adventure. Along with the facts, I have collected and identified many old pictures, often put away in forgotten boxes. I have tried to share these pictures with their loved ones.|
I am currently working on my husband's family- the Ramsey, Gardner, Jamison and Pinkard families from Henry and Franklin Counties Virginia.
I'm also working on my mother's family - the Manson and Bridgforth families in Lunenburg Co., Va and the Cunningham and Allen families in Prince Edward Co, Va.

Sorry to say there are no headstones in this entire Section M Lot 36. According to the plot map there are 15 burials but no stones.
|Louise Homan Keiser||RE: Kenbridge Heights Cemetery|
I did stop at the Kenbridge town hall and inquire about a map and intermnet listing, several years ago. I was told they had no such information and to call the Staples Funeral home about burials and locations, however they don't have a map either. Curious! A physical scan of the cemetery would be the only sure way to find them. Whom are you looking for?
|Debra Chitwood Revel||RE: George Lewis Bridgforth|
One of the employees of the cemetery was kind enough to look for his grave. I did not ask her to look for the wife as that was not in the original request. I would not want to ask her to go back and look again as she took time out of her busy day to help me.
There was no marker for him but she did verify he was buried at that location.
|mark hardy||Bridgforth Family|
I have recently revisted Findagrave.com as some Bridgforth and Hardy cousins and I have connected.
Our gg grandmothers were siblings, Lucy Rives Collier Bridgforth and Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth.
Your gg grandfather, George Baskerville Bridgforth, was their sibling.
If you wish to share/compare feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lucy RC Bridgforth married Griffin Orgain Hardy. The grandchildren of four of his sons have put togethrr a great blog site. You can find it at hardyfamilyhistory.WORLDPRESS.COM. I actually found some old pictures of Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth' soninlaw Charles Betts Hardy in the unidentified album section.
And there are many more. If you think you can help identify some by xreferencing any old Bridgforth pictures you have, that would be so appreciated.
I also just recently got all the kids of Griffin and Lucy attached to them. Now I am going to have to create an eentry for my gg grandparents Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth and George Asa Barnes, cause Louise Keiser has already crested memorials of Charles Betts Hardy's family. Also, I see you have Eugene Bridgforth Barnes. I will be able to link him in.
Thanks for all the posts. Looking forward to hear from you.

|Gayle||RE: Harden D. Ross|
No, I had not seen this photo before finding it on this site. I'm researching the family of Harden's youngest son James Burwell Ross (aka Jesse). I came across this photo and just didn't want to include it in my file without making some notation as to its source, and as to who authenticated it. Thanks for helping me with that. Thus far, I haven't found any of the burial sites for James' family. James' death record says that he was buried in Fort Gay, Wayne County, but I can't find him on this site. I've referenced this site numerous times, but just registered yesterday, so I don't know the ins and outs of posting. If I do find anything, and if I can figure out how it's done, I will link. I'm not related -- just doing research for a friend. Harden Ross would be his 2nd great-grandfather.
