|Bio and Links|
Retired military. Genealogy is a passion but I slow down when football season arrives. Willing to help others as much as possible. I focus on my Stewart roots (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and the Marshall family on my mother's side (Virginia).|
I photo document cemeteries as a hobby and have completed ones in my area of James City County, Charles City County, Williamsburg and York County, VA. Have also worked on cemeteries in Surry, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, VA and Hampton National Cemetery in Hampton, VA and Richmond National Cemetery in Richmond, VA. Recently completed Mount Calvary Cemetery in Richmond and am now working on Riverview Cemetery in Richmond with a friend.
I have also photo documented several cemeteries in the Hilton Head Island, SC, Kitty Hawk (Dare County), NC, Leavenworth, KS and Bellevue (Douglas and Sarpy counties), Nebraska areas while on vacation.
If I have added a memorial for one of your family members just let me know your Find A Grave member number and I will transfer it to you.

Ron, Thank you for capturing the headstone for 164214425 in Riverview Cemetery, Richmond this past summer. It helped me clean up the name and dates for an maternal great grandmother in an otherwise stalled search!
Your work is appreciated!!!

Hello, Ron...yes, it certainly could be an error since family cemeteries can be a little confusing. There is no death certificate on Ancestry...frankly I can't recall now how I chose the cemetery designation. I will be happy to relocate him next to his family members and since you are a descendant would you like a transfer of this memorial into your keeping?

There is only one more Marshall cemetery in the book and it is on Route 619 and no burials since 1944.
Yes i would say the Marion Marshall Family Cem.
Thsnks. I do not have Ancestry.
|LMB||RE: Thank you|
I was very happy to try & fulfill the request, although was saddened the grave was unmarked. I know there is a level of comfort in having that visualization. Thank you for your kind words & for all you contribute to the F-A-G community. The amount of work you've done here is amazing & hopefully you know how much it is appreciated by the family members gifted by your efforts.

You are so welcome. Perhaps you might know if the Fladings of Wheeling were all related? I am not related however connected via some memorials and when it came to Sebilla Flading Heldeffer, I found her immigration document coming in 1859 with mother Margaret Flading. On Sebilla (various spellings found) Flading's marriage record to John Heldeffer in 1871 it was with consent of her mother "Margaretha" ? Flading, difficult to read. Then Margaret lives with the Heldeffers in Wheeling on 1880 census. She was listed as age 61 born Hesse/Germany but disappears after that record. Do you know of any connection to your wife's Flading family? just thought I'd share the info and ask if you have any info on Margaret. thanks!
|L. K. Perry||RE: Wife of Lewis F. Marshall|
It says her mother's name was Sarah A. SIMPKINS. I haven't seen the original record, and the index lists no father's name. Do you have a way to look at the original record (or a microfilm of it)?
The 1910 census lists Lewis and Bessie with 2 sons, Lee (age 6) and Benjamin (age 4).
I have not seen a death certificate for Lee. However, the 1969 death certificate for Benjamin Marshall of Chantilly VA says he was born in Carroll County, Virginia, on 11 March 1903, the son of Louis [sic] MARSHALL and Bessie Frances FERRELL. He had never married, and the informant was a cousin, Jesse Marshall. He died on 24 September 1969 and was buried in Chestnut Grove Cemetery in Herndon VA (certificate 69-027977).
Are you related?

Yes, Ron! Oh my gosh, that's him!! Here I was looking for Giacomo---and there he is as James, his "Americanized" name! Wow, that is just awesome--thank you so much ffor your diligence!!
|Benjamin White||Delph White Marshall|
Hi, Ron. I found a lead for the burial location of Delphine (White) Marshall, wife of Elias Washington Marshall (#33481748).
According to http://www.marshallgenealogy.org/tng/getperson.php?personID=I30551&tree=Marshall:
Buried: Topeka Cemetary, Topeka, Kansas Section 81 grave #8
No gravestone marks her grave. She is buried beside Charles Council, Perhaps Ida Council's father-in-law...not certain

|Marilee Mouser||Rebecca Jane McFarland Stewart|
Ron, I can tell you more about her parents--her mother was Mary Ann Mouser, descended from German Protestants who emigrated from Oeschingen in Wuertemberg to Philadelphia 1751. I think we're cousins, of a sort!!!
|Henry May||Thanks Ron|
As I dig further into the Jones and Edwards in Isle of Wight county I realize how much work you have done.
Thanks for the recent transfers and all you do for findagrave.
