I've been researching my family "forest" for a year now. I don't consider myself to be experienced in genealogy whatsoever; I still consider myself to be a "newbie". I don't think I'll ever fully know what I'm exactly doing. |
My family lines consist of Holmes' and Smiths' from Smyth County, Virginia; Foster's and Hodge's from Pulaski County, Virginia; and Mooney's (also Moony) and Wall's from Carroll and Grayson County (also Wythe County), Virginia. Although as I typed all of that, I realize that in my research, I've found that my family is actually from many more locales than just those that I listed.
I'm also researching my husbands' family, the Davis' & Farmer's from Pulaski County, Virginia, and the Burton's and O'Dell's from Pulaski County, Virginia.
So I guess that's about it... So if I think of anything else, I'll add it...

You are welcome
|SWVA Genealogy Searcher||RE: Thank you|
You are quite welcome.
Thula is related in 2 different ways to my husband. Daughter of Grand Aunt to my husband and wife of 1st cousin 2X removed.
sent you a question to your email, forgot to say it was from me! find a grave is in subject box, tho.
|historianne||Per your photo request John Barnette|
I have located the gravestone for John (your request Oct 2010)and it is next to his parents. It is hand-chisled and extremely difficult to read. I have requested a marker transcription for it to be added to the memorial. It is to the best of my ability to read. While attending a funeral there this week, I ran into the caretaker. I told him who this was and after determing the grave belonged to someone who died in 1972 (it looks much older) he realized he knew John. They went to church together. He remembers him as being the only person he knew who sang the song "Here Comes the Black Train" or something like that. Since he knew John he said he would try to make the stone more readable. I probably won't get back there until spring- I could also try tracing it.

You are Welcome.
|Lisa Pedersen||RE: Glendy Family|
Okay, thank you SO much!!!!!
|Lisa Pedersen||RE: Glendy Family|
I don't think that is the correct Mary Glendy, this one was born in 1791 in Ireland and died in Augusta County in 1853. There is a findagrave.com page for her, it says she was about 62. Find A Grave Memorial# 62315629
She was the daughter of the William Glendy I requested, he died, I think, in 1826. I assume since he lived there his grave is in the same place, but it may be lost to time, or unable to be read.
Birth 1767 in Ulster, Ireland
Death 15 Aug 1826 in Augusta, Virginia, United States
Birth 1791 in Ireland
Death 25 Nov 1853 in Newbern, Pulaski, Virginia, United States
She was by his first wife, who died when they were still in Ireland.
The second wife is Ann/ Anna Robinson Glendy who you so kindly posted a picture of her grave earlier.
There were 6 brothers, 2 left and moved to central Missouri, and I took the pictures of their graves, and I have made findagrave.com pages for them.
I found one brother in Augusta County with a findagrave.com page, but I am still trying to find pictures of the other 3 brothers, and the half sister Mary who died in 1853.
1800 – 1857
1802 – 1880
Samuel Glendy (have grave picture)
1804 – 1879
Thomas Marshal Glendy (have grave picture)
1806 – 1884
1807 – 1890
Robert James Glendy (have grave picture)
1814 – 1889
Thanks again so much!!
Can you tell me, I am trying to plan a trip out there to try to research more abou the Glendy and Shields families. How far is Augusta County, approximaetly, from the DC area? I usually fly in to Dulles when I go to DC. Also, do you happen to know anything at all about a historical society/ genealolgy society in Augusta County. Some places it is the library, others I have found have a stand alone historical society.
Thanks again SO much for ALL of your help!!
|Lisa Pedersen||RE: Re: Glendy Family|
Thank you SO much for continuing to add more of my Glendy ancestors grave pictures!!!! I have been working on the women with their married names and it appears almost every grave in that cemetery is related, at least by marriage.
Since I think you already have photographed every grave, is there one for William Glendy, husband to the grave picture you took earlier for me of Anna Robinson Glendy, or his sister Mary Glendy (she died in 1853)?
I am now starting to work on researching my other ancestors from there, the wife of Thomas Glendy, her name was Elenor Shields Glendy. She and her sister Sallie/ Sarah Shields Glendy left Augusta County, Virginia and moved with their husbands Thomas and Samuel Glendy, to central Missouri, somewhere in the late 1810's early 1820's. Thomas and Elenor were actually not married until they were in Missouri, but so far I can't find the other sister/ brother marriage, so I think maybe it occurred before they left Virginia.
I am trying to find who their father was, someone Shields. I have found many Shields families from Augusta County.
Thanks again and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
|Chris Bowman||RE: Thank you!|
glad to help! her brother Ballard Bowman is my great great grandfather.
|Michael Doty||RE: Also...|
Hi, Again: Yup, I see my mistake. I was on the wrong road. OK, I'm now looking at the satellite photo of the area on Google Map. I've found Newbern Heights Drive, but I can't see anything that resembles a cemetery. Let's assume Newbern Heights Drive is an east-west street. Bisecting it in the middle appears to be a north-south lane called Bridle. Is the cemetery to the left (west) of Bridle, or right (east)? You said it was on the left side of Newbern Heights. Would that make it south? Can you give me a further landmark, like how many houses away from the corner of Bridle? Like I said, I'm not sure I'll every drive around that area again, so I have to rely on others. I hope I am not being a pest over this.
