Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired preschool teacher and I enjoy doing geneology searches for my family. I remember receiving my first photo of a grave marker of a distant relative and that feeling of connection I had when I saw it. I was so grateful and appreciative of the gentleman who took the time to take the picture for me. By volunteering for Find a Grave I hope to help others make their own connections.

RE: Thomas Warmath
Your welcome. I had never heard of this name before your request but shortly after I noticed it in a comment in the quilting site I have joined. :-) Warmath is an uncommon name here. This is the first time I have seen it.
Well, time to go to church so I hope you have a great day.

Arnold Van Heuvelen
Just to let you know, I got the headstone of Arnold last year and posted them to the Van Heuvelen memorials at that time. You need to remove your duplicate memorials, because they are already in the database as Van Heuvelen (with the space).

I dropped Bruce a note letting him know that the photos were already posted.

Enjoy! Megan

RE: William Edward Curd

By all means, share the notes with Willie Mae Curd Pillow. Now that you've solved the mystery of William Edward "Willie" Curd, the only remaining one is Susan S Williams, 1827-1906. If it's convenient, you might ask Mrs. Pillow. It would not be surprising if she didn't know about someone who died two decades before her birth, but then again, it is a small, tight-knit community.

Thanks for the photo of the stone for William. I read that as 6 March 1940. I'll fix the date on the memorial. He must have died just before the 1940 census.

It has been a pleasure working with you, Vera.

Curd family cemetery
Thanks for the photos of the Pillows in the Curd cemetery. The lady you spoke to is probably Willie Mae (Curd) Pillow, widow of James Daniel Pillow. The Pillows are connected to my husband's family.
I just added that cemetery a few days ago so glad you were able to find it from the directions in the Nelson County book :)

RE: Curd Cemetery

See the memorial I just created in the Curd Cemetery for William Edward "Willie" Curd. I mentioned that he had (at least) one child, named Willie Mae Curd. That would be the woman you spoke to. The world is indeed small. If you ever get back there, could you please ask what became of her father? Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My great grandmother was a Curd and my people originally came from Curdsville, a very small place in Buckingham County, on U.S. 15 (the Carolina Road), just north of Farmville.
Thanks also for confirming the directions. I may try to get there sometime. I live in Arlington.
Best regsrds, Rod

William Edward Curd

I just created a memorial for William Edward Curd. As I said in the memorial, I suspect he was also buried in the Curd Cemetery. You did such a thorough job that I am sure you would have included a photo if his stone were still intact. In any case, it gave me the opportunity to provide links I have also asked the owner of the other Curd family memorials to make the links. Thanks again for your work with my cousins. Rod

Curd Cemetery

Thank you very much for your photos of the Curd Cemetery. These people are kin to me and I appreciate seeing their stones. The stones themselves are beautiful works of folk art and your photos capture every detail. With your pictures I could also make sense of the relations. For instance, the photo shows Francis (not Frances) E. Curd. I couldn't figure out who that was from the memorial with the feminine spelling of the name. Francis is the head of the family, Pauline E Farrar Curd his wife, Mansfield and Sarah Frances Curd Wilbourne two of their children. Richard Lewis Wilbourne, then, was obviously the husband to Sarah. Nettie Walker Curd and Viola Hudson Curd were two wives of Willie Curd, a third child of Francis and Pauline. Finally, Robert W Hudson was the father of Viola Hudson Curd.

Were the directions to the cemetery good? I could not find it on Google Earth. Thanks again.
