Barbara Carnell Sims Abernathy
I am a great-great grandson of William Arthur Abernathy, who is the father of Thomas Jefferson "Abby" Abernathy. Abby is the half brother of my grandfather's father James Lewis Abernathy. My mom posted a picture of William Arthur's obituary and it got me to thinking. I have been wondering if any of my Abernathy relatives have been in contact with that branch of the family tree. It looks like from Lola Urena Creasy Sims Gregory's obituary that there were some Abernathy grandchildren. Any information you have regarding this branch would be appreciated and you can contact me at

I found a Alwyn L Sims b. 1/19/1926 d. 10/26/1955.
I'll have to go back and see if Sherwood has another location for Annie McVey and Alvin Lewis Sims.

James Milton Creasy
Hi, I will go to the office and get a copy of the section his wife is buried in and see who is buried in the two unmarked graves.

Regarding James Milton Creasy
General logic would assume that James would be buried next to his wife, Edith, or in the same grave as her (Double Depth). There are two unmarked graves to the immediate left (looking at her fallen stone) of Edith. To the right of Edith is an old large tree. You might want to clarify James' exact location, with or without a marker, with Hopewell City public works department, the owner & manager of the cemetery. They use a card file and map book filing system but there is no on-site help. The office telephone number is 804-541-2295.

Lucy Ann Creasy Graham
You requested a photo for Lucy in Fair View Cemetery in Roanoke, VA, and the volunteer had problems finding it because the memorial does not say her last name is Graham. I would suggest that you contact the manager of her memorial and have them change that. There is burial information for that cemetery at
If you type Graham in the search box, you will find Lucy Ann.
I just found my Ggrandmother there....
Good Luck.

Thank you for taking the time to honor my requests and for also taking the photo of their son's grave. I was not aware was there.

Very glad to transfer this memorial to your care. I have several other Hawkes memorials in the same cemetery and would be very happy to transfer them also.

Richard Carter
Hi there,
I transfered this memorial to you. Rick was my mom's first cousin. I grew up 2 streets over from him and Judy in Luna Pier. I have been working on my dad's family tree mostly, but have done a little with my mom's side. If you need anything on the Hiteshew family, I would be more than happy to pass on what I have. You can email me at

I posted a photo of the stone she shares with her husband and thought you might want to add a memorial for him too. Best Wishes.

I'm happy to transfer this to you. I wish the lighting had been better when I took the picture. probably was taking pictures during my lunch hour and didn't check them until later. If you need a clearer picture, let me know.

RE: Ryder Family at Sunset Hill Cemetery
Thats because I have all the photos taken. I put them out there when I can, or when someone requests them.
I also added some Johnston stones and females with Johnston in their names. There are some without tombstones, so if one is missing it is because I did not find a stone for them.
