Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Naval Officer living in the Orange Park, FL area. My family history was so poorly passed down that I did not know any names of either grandparents. 5 years ago I started genealogy research (with my wife doing most of the "heavy lifting"). Find A Grave contributors gave us contact with the lost grave site of my grandfather, William Jackson Chesser, lost until now. As we "Pay Forward" for other researchers our hope would be to help someone else in finding their lost kin. I will be glad to provide photo uploads for those of immediate family in known grave sites within my local area.
You're only dead when forgotten.
Good Hunting,
Bill Chesser

I also forgot to mention.. I notice you only had one grand daughter listed, my Aunt Deb, but you did not have my mother Robin Leanne Campbell listed. I would really appreciate it if you could update the information. Thanks!

RE: Welcome To Find A Grave
Hi Bill,
I'm not related to any of those in Bell Hill,Knotts Ridge Cemetery.
I just took the photos when I was there and uploaded them to memorials already made.
I added the photos to the memorials that were added first,you would have to request a transfer from them.

Welcome To Find A Grave
I'm uploading photos of grave sites today to the Bell Hill(Knotts Ridge)Cemetery near Rowlesburg in Preston County W.V.
I've noticed you made duplicates of some of the markers.
If you're related by within 4 generations of the person you added the Find A Grave policy is that you request transfer of original memorial from the person that added it provided they are not closer related than yourself.
Otherwise you should delete your memorial and send any info on to the original owner of memorial.
I add my photo usually to the first one posted.
Just a heads up : )
Again Welcome!
