|Bio and Links|
I am very interested in local history and this interest has led me to some places that are "off the beaten path." When I see small cemeteries/graveyards, I have often wondered how families would be able to locate these especially if they aren't named cemeteries. Nonetheless, I am especially interested in the photo requests of these smaller areas that some may not be interested in traveling to. Unfortunately, some are in such a state of disrepair, it is very hard to locate stones. |
I hope to be of help to those seeking their ancestors and feel free to request a transfer of your family members if I am showing as managing it. Just because I "found" and photographed their stone, certainly doesn't mean I "own" it. I have a hard time understanding why people on here are so possessive about a memorial they added and its not even their family. So much drama on a website intended to be helpful.
Feel free to contact me if I can help you with locating a cemetery or help with piecing together any information you have trouble finding, in any of the counties in SW Virginia. I would much rather do the photos, finding, etc than enter memorials from a list (but, I am grateful for those that will enter them) AND please feel free to use any photos for your ancestry. You can credit me with the photo, or not. I put them here for the family's to be able to see the resting place of their loved ones, not to fulfill a number or get some kind of credit.
Please don't send photo volunteers on a wild goose chase unless you tell them that in advance. As someone who really enjoys fulfilling those requests, there is nothing more frustrating than someone adding memorials to a cemetery when they have no proof they are buried there, then requests photos. I don't think memorials should be added to a cemetery because you think they should be there. Also, if there is a photo of their stone, and its a good photo, please don't request another one.
If I have added a memorial or photo of your loved one, please know I do it only to create a lasting memory of that person that present and future generations can visit to find their ancestors and pay their respects, as they may not be able to do so in person.

|Robert Fairchild Family||George R. McPeak's Headstone Picture|
We want to Thank You for taking and adding the picture of George R. McPeak's headstone for us. We greatly appreciate you doing that. Since we don't live in Virginia we are unable to take the pictures ourselves. It's great that there are people like you on Find A Grave willing and able to do that for other people. You are a God sent.
We agree with what you said in you Bio. We have run into people on Find A Grave that will not give us control of our family members Find A Grave pages because "They" set them up first. They act like they are made of Gold. It's so sad that there are people out there that feel that way. They want all the credit for any and all information and pictures that are added no matter who really does the work.
Take Care and May God Bless You For Your Good Works.
Best Wishes, the Robert Fairchild Family

I want to Thank You for taking and adding the picture of Christine McPeak's headstone for us. We greatly appreciate you doing that. Since we live in the Northwestern part of the US we are unable to get back to the East coast to take the pictures ourselves. It's great that there are people like you on Find A Grave willing and able to do that for other people. You are a God sent.
Take Care and Have A Great Week.

|Carol (Judy) Tear||RE: Tear's at Central Cemetery|
Tracy, I really appreciate all of the research you have done....I have tried to find out how I decided that the Tears were buried at Central, but so far I have not uncovered that info. Ellen died of typhoid as did her daughter Elizabeth Rose within days of each other in Radford, Va, according to family records.(I haven't made a Findagrave memorial for Elizabeth Rose yet.) I probably assumed that Wm Frederick was buried with his wife even though he died some years later in Saltville, Va. I don't suppose that death records are available in Radford. Do you know? Probably the cemetery is listed on those records. Again, thanks so much...I really don't know how to proceed from here.....Judy Tear
