Wllilam Stokes
Is his is William Stokes living in Lynchburg? We saw him 5 or years ago at his Aunt Elizabeth'a funeral. She was the last child to pass of Robert Glenn Stokes and Iva Mae Williams.Then we stopped in to visit with his mother Virginia.EB habn't seen her in years. I know William had some pictures of EB and Nancy and he did give us a few that day.
I have a copy of Jim's obitutrary his wife at the time gave us one. But we are doing work in our house so it may take time to find it. I'm sure it was in the South Hill Paper and also RIchmond TImes.
Jom died of cancer and we just lost his beautiful age forty year daughter, Michelle to ALS. Did you see her obit at the virtual Dundas Baptist Church Cemetery.She was buried next to her Daddy. Jim's son Gavin,a has a lucrative floral busniess and has just partnered with someone, a lady's boutique,Jim has two grandchildren he never saw. Since MIchelle was divorced when she died her ex-husband and new wife had the children and live in Richmond. It has been a heartbreaking situation all around for Michelle' family and friends's
I'm married to EB, Jim's brother. We live in Powhatan va EB had three children my his first marriage. Brian,Tammy Coldiron(she just lost her husband and Tracy Monroe a single mother of thred girls.
EB still has a cousin Judy Farrar living in South Hill. Her sister Glenn Stokes died about two years ago.These girls are Elizabeth's children.
I have done a family tree on the Stoke's and they begin in Gloucester VA 1600's There is a historian in the family Jennie Gregory Marshall Howe living in Gloucester VA.

RObert Glenn Stokes the Grandfather is buried at the old Stokes Family Cemetery in Lunenburg Co. along with many of the older Stokes The property has been bought and sold, but the cemetery is still there. Very difficult to get to. It is in a middle of the field. If you do a cemtery look up it will give you the directions.

You are asking for Jim's Obit, is that for informational purposes to trace the history?

I have a lot of information on the Stokes, especially for EB's mother. I didn't have too much on the other children. I know David was in a motorcycle accident when fairly young. Elizabeth married Mac( have to find his last name) Margaret married Red, he is gone too. Nannie Archer ,EB's mother died 1953 and his little sister in 1953 also.
I have found out the Stokes were big landowners in Lunenburg. After they migrated to Lunenburg Peter and another famoiy member I think it was Nannie Archer, stayed in Lunenburg and the rest migrated to NC And SC. They became lawyers and one governor. All seemed to be in the justice system some kind of way, Warren Stokes Jr who passed away about five years ago was sheriff of Lunenburg as was his grandfather. There are many Stokes still in the area. EB by chance met a Montfort Stokes. retired as a pilot and flew the Air Force one. How impressive is that??
I have more information but it ia a lot to send at one time. If you give me address I can mail it to you. ALso I have it on Ancestry.com but not to many of the stories. I know more than EB.
