Thought you might want to take a look at what I've done with JF Massey's page since he's your ancestor. I've located all but two of the 12 children.

RE: Blandford Cemetery
Normally I tell people like Susan (sassytazzy) that we're practically neighbors... you and I may literally be neighbors! I'm on Fairfax! (I really hope no psycho stalkers are hanging about your Find A Grave page!)

My husband loves that I go to the cemetery, even though he doesn't necessarily appreciate it the same way I do - he figures any exercise is good exercise. :)

RE: Blandford Cemetery
You bet, I live in Walnut Hill so I'm just around the corner from Blandford!

It's great to have more members in the area. There is another lady, sassytazzy, who's done a ton of work at Blandford but she lives in Richmond and lately hasn't been on here much. It's a fantastic hobby - but I'll tell ya, before long it consumes more than just your spare time!! I've started using my lunch breaks at work to get cemeteries in Sandston online... I wonder if there's a support group for this?

Anyway I've started working on the new ground, I'm pretty much going alphabetically with the wards. I'm working from the 1992 survey of the cemetery from the LVA - you can find it here:

and filling in the gaps with the burials since then (not that there are many in the old sections.) A, B, and C of the new ground are done, and I'm onto D now. Incidentally, this covers the area along the brick wall at Crater in its entirety - I have yet to find the photo requests Jeremy Winfrey is looking for. The only area left that I haven't checked is the Crater Ward, adjacent to the office.... but since Angela at the office was unable to locate the names he was looking for, I wonder if they are really buried in St. Joe's instead of Blandford?

So anyhow, rambling on enough now, just letting you know my MO. :)

Blandford Cemetery
Hi Jimmy!
Hey just noticed you'd mentioned a problem on a photo request for Blandford - if there is anything I can assist with, let me know. I'm working on documenting the cemetery and so far, the old ground is complete to the best of my ability. :) Anyway for most of the photo requests that are currently up there, I suspect there are no headstones. I've checked for a few with the office, to no avail. Are you local to the area?

Richardson grave at Blandford
Thank you for your efforts. I already know that her father William A Richardson (d1850) is buried along the brick wall on Crater St, but his stone no longer remains. William was my 3X great grand father. I have yet to locate his wife Martha Dean (Sawtell) Richardson. She lived until 1879 in Manchester. I have a host of others I am looking for at Blandford. When I contacted the office I was told it would be $7 per inquiry. I couldn't believe that was the case, but apparently at the time it was. Are they a little more helpful these days? I would love to return to Blandford and record other stones. Obviously, with the magnitude of the cemetery I wouldn't have much luck simply searching on foot. Thanks again,

Not sure if I have requested anything at Blanford Cemetery or not.I have been working on a project trying to find where soldiers of these Regiments are buried.

1st Brigade N.C.Confederate Militia
1st New York Marine Artillery
3rd Georgia Infantry
6th New Hampshire Infantry
9th New York Infantry(Hawkins Zouaves)
21st Massachusetts Infantry

I just finished the 51st Pennsylvania Infantry,now goin to another Regiment,taking the roster one Company at a time.If you ever come across any headstones of the Regiments I have listed please take them,I will make a memorial for them if there isn't one already.Thanks.
