I am new to genealogy research, but am fascinated by what I have learned about my family so far. I am currently working with a distant cousin to piece together a family tree for my maternal grandmother's family ... the Ferguson's of Franklin County, VA.|

Hi Julie, I entered a memorial in Ferguson-Rakes Cemetery today, Ruth Jarrett Foster #116825548 & linked her to her husband of which you entered. If she is of special interest to you or related, I will transfer to you. Hope all is well, Larry
Hi Julie, hope all is well. I just recently came across another Hale buried back kindda between Ferrum & Callaway, born in late 1800's, I don't know if she may be a missing piece. She is Mary Hale Prillaman #101202324 buried in Clearview Cemetery, Franklin Co, Va. Later, Larry

The Cemetery I last told you about is now up on f-a-g with memorials & pics. It is called Carter-Ferguson Cemetery, there are around 20 Fergusons in there. Thought you might want to check it out, Larry

John Marshall Rakes' parents are listed as Lewis Marshall Rakes and Nancy A. Smith Rakes on Rootsweb. Here's the link
It also lists Lewis Marshall Rakes mother as Celia Leffew which is another link between the Rakes and Leffew families. I believe Nancy Janney Rakes grandmother was also a Leffew. I also found 2 more of Robert and Nancy Rakes children and got them linked. I had heard growing up that they had 16 children; according to a page copied from a family bible that I have only 14 are listed. Perhaps the 16 includes the 2 infants that are buried at the family cemetery. One of the children I linked was Laura Rakes Young. Her and her husband are buried at Maple Grove church cemetery which is nearby the family cemetery. I posted photo reguests for both. My uncle told me that Aunt Laura was instrumental in getting all her grandparents graves marked towards the end of her life, so I think she would appreciate that we are interested in preserving family histories. I've also posted pictures of John Rakes (from WV) and Laura and Lillie Rakes Young. I've got pictures of some of Robert and Nancy's other children but I don't think they are on Findagrave. Also the Rootsweb page with the info on Lewis Rakes lists the family cemetery as the Samuel H. Ferguson cemetery so I guess the Ferguson's were there first lol.
