Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the son of Larue and Mary Mable Carico Whitt. I was born on the old Vince Whitt Homeplace, once owned by James Venters, near Pound, Wise County, VA. I have been involved in the family genealogy for many years now. I have family information on most of my connecting families which lived in the Wise, Dickenson, and some surrounding counties of Virginia. I have been to about all of the associated family cemeteries in the area.

My first wife, who is deceased was from Dale County, Alabama. I have researched her family and associated family lines. I remarried and have now become working on my present wife's family lines.

I served with the 101st ABN Div in Vietnam as a crewchief on a UH-1 helicopter with A Battery, 377th Arty, (Aviation). I retired from the 118th Airlift Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard at Berryfield, Nashville, TN.

I love genealogy and the work that is involved in it. I love to visit the various cemeteries involved in my tracing of family history.

If you ever notice that I have added a photo to a memorial, I go to cemeteries looking for my friends and family. I always take a few more photos, then come home to see if a memorial has one listed, if the memorial is not entered I will try to enter it with the information that I have. I will look at different sources to help complete the memorial. I also like to go camping and when I do I take along my camera just in case we pass a cemetery that is along the way. As my bumper sticker reads: I Brake for Cemeteries.

James Barnett Snell

I am relatively new to researching my ancestors. I came across where you mentioned having information regarding James Barnett Snell that was married to Mary Liesnby. I knower he joined the 1st Regiment Florida Calvary Company E on Sep 8th 1864 and died in Barrancus FL on Dec 22 1864.

Apparently he was buried nearby but I have not been able to find anything about his burial place. I think that he fought for the Confederacy but left in 1864 and returned home to Dale county AL. He then joined the Union as mentioned above.

You mentioned having a history book with information about him?

He is my 3rd Great Grand Father. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
I hadn't read your bio until after I left my reply. Thank you for your service to our country, sir! My father also served during Vietnam. I am an Air Force brat, so I have the perspective of being part of a military family. Thank you, again! Sheila

RE: Henry Tolley Memorial-Stones River National Battlefield, Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, TN
I agree. I live in Nashville, so it isn't too far to go every now and then. I wish gas prices weren't a problem for me. However, I went to the cemetery Sunday to get some pics of the stones with flags. Then I decided to check whether there were any requests. To my delight, I found 14 that weren't already claimed. I enjoyed fulfilling the requests but was thrilled when less than an hour later, a descendant of one of the soldiers messaged me how happy she was that I had uploaded the pic. She wasn't even the one who'd requested it. When I got home, my legs hurt so much from all of the squatting down and getting back up that I did taking the requested photos and a bunch of others. But I loved how I felt inside by taking the photos I took yesterday, so I looked through the T section of Find A Grave to find some memorials that didn't have a photo of the gravestone. During that search, I found several duplicates. I went to Stones River again today and took some more pics for Find A Grave. In my opinion, the photos are especially nice when a bit of the flag blows into the frame but doesn't block the name. I think that I've found a new way for me to spend my Memorial Day weekends. I hope that yours this year was as memorable. Sincerely, Sheila

While I was doing Mary per your request, I took the liberty of photographing George (her brother), William & Anna (her parents). They are all added to their respective memorial pages.

RE: Joseph Addington Memorial
You are welcome. I purchased a copy of the Scott County Cemeteries book from the Historical Society and when I have time I try to add people to Find A Grave that are in the book. Glad I could help you made a connection.

RE: Charlie E. Ferrell Memorial-Overton County, TN
Oh you of little patience. As soon as I received the notification I removed my memorial.
I believe is much better to have two memorials than not to have one. If necessary I am happy to edit, transfer, or delete any of my memorials
