Bio and Links
I am a family genealogist with a particular interest in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula of tidewater Virginia,and in Pittsylvania, Henry and Halifax counties in southside Virginia. I primarily research my lines with the surnames Davis, Biscoe, Smith, and Cline. I also focus on Green/e, Hufford, Tinder, Robertson, Lawson, Blakemore and Pearson.

On behalf of my wife and her family, I research Skinner, Paillard, Tice and Terwilliger lines.

I'm a descendent of a PA John Davis. He married a Nancy Davis.
He lived in Plunketts Creek PA in 1850 as a lumberman before moving to Illinois.

Would you know of this John Davis?

Thanks, Trevor Davis of Minnesota

John, are you related to William Smith? If so, I just wanted to make you aware the family of William Smith could have a government CSA headstone placed since his current stone is so badly damaged. I am a member of a local UDC Chapter in Rockingham County and I am presently involved with getting a stone replacement for another CSA veteran. If you wish further information please feel free to contact me. Love the bio that is on his memorial.

RE: Harry Earl Biscoe
The photo was scanned from the book "A Military Album Containing over One Thousand Portraits of Commissioned Officers who served in the Spanish American War", published in 1902. It's basically a photo album that just contains photos of officers. Unfortunately it doesn't have any biographical information.

For information on Biscoe you might want to order a partial printout of a microfilm from the National Archives in Washington. Microfilm # "M 1328" Abstracts of Service Records of Naval Officers 1829-1924 contains some info on Biscoe. His entry is in Volume 19, starting on page 111. I don't know if the Archives staff can make these print outs. If not, you might be able to arrange a loan through your local LDS (Mormon) Church family history center.
Good luck in your research,
