Bio Photo -She Walks These Hills-

"She walks these hills in a long black veil, she visits my grave when the night wind wails.
Nobody knows, nobody sees but me...."

(song lyrics by Dill and Wilkins)


For years I have been intrigued in researching the history of my family. I had no idea when you pull one thread, dozens more appear. I have met many wonderful fellow historians in this pursuit and in this aspect I am forever grateful to Find A Grave.

I simply enjoy people's stories and each grave and headstone mark a life that is interesting and worth knowing more about.

Often times we are so consumed by our own lives we forget- or overlook the voices from the past. They were here before us, we can learn from their lives.

Thomas Walker Lewis is my 4th g-grandfather. I've been to his grave in Charlottesville, VA, at Riverview Cemetery. There is a clearly marked headstone for him. His wife is buried in Missouri. Memorial 35410272 was created before your memorial and includes a photo of the headstone. Please delete your memorial, since it is a duplicate and the incorrect cemetery is marked. Thank you very much.

I just had to comment. That song was one of my husband's most favorite songs.
He was a Harrison descendant.

Col Edmund Fontaine
I am seeking information on Edmund Fontaine. Do you have any additional pictures of this man? If not, where did you find the one you posted? Your answer will help me a great deal.

Many thanks,

Lt Wm Alexander Henry # 31364023

There is a duplicate memorial for him created in 2015, after yours. That memorial is # 149645130. That member has several errors on that page, and does not have all the links available, but does have some additional information. I have advised her, and am sending her a follow up email.

My thought was to pull the information together into one, yours, and suggest she then delete hers. Is there an email we could use to communicate collectively?...her email is posted on her memorial page and if you send a message to her, she will have mine.

I simply thought I might help to expedite...William was my fifth great grandfather and I would like to see one reasonably complete memorial based on what records are available.

In 1938 my grandfather Michael T. Morrissey bought an antebellum house in Port Gibson, Mississippi. The house was in bad shape and he dismantled it and used all the building materials when he built my grandmothers dream house in Vicksburg, Mississippi. We have found some folks that are going to take us to the house site and cemetery. I had never seen a picture of any of the Archers or the photo you posted of the house. I was interested in knowing where you found the pictures and if you knew of anymore photo's of the house? I would be interested in anything you know about Anchuka. The house my grandfather built is called Grey Oaks and it still stands today. Kind Regards, Kelly Morrissey Stevens

I was wondering if you would allow me to use your image of Botts' grave on the ECW blog ( I am putting together a small article related to Botts.

Sarah Dabney or Jennings?
According to Tidewater Virginia Families, p. 430, she is stated to be Sarah Jennings, widow of John Dabney, based on the fact she patented land in the name of Sarah Dabney in 1701. However your Find A Grave states she is widow of John Jennings and daughter of Cornelius Dabney.

Then I have in "International Marriage Records," Sarah Jennings marrying Cornelius "The Immigrant" Dabney in 1721. This is also stated in "Dabneys of Virginia...," page 32.

Then I have a Sarah Dabney, daughter of Cornelius "the Immigrant," marrying a Matthew Brown in 1755.

I also have a Sarah Jennings, born 1684, marrying Isaac Dabney in 1701, and Sarah Jennings, born 1684 marrying John Dabney from "International Marriage Records."

Needless to say I'm confused. Any help available?

Hello, this is Jim I contacted you several years ago on a quest to find the whereabouts to my 5th Great Grandfather and Great Uncle Hoomes portraits which were last known to be in the possession of the sisters Winston. I got a bit sidetracked to say the least would love to catch up with you again please drop me a line when you can at Thanks again for your time, I believe there was a lady working for a branch of the library in Mechanicsville area that you thought might be of help at the time. Anyway hope you are well! Thanks again.

Isabella Harminson Ritchie Harrison
Hi, I am descended from Isabella H. Ritchie, first daughter born to Thomas and Isabella Foushee Ritchie. The Find a Grave site lists Isabella as married to Robert King Stone, but she married George Evelyn Harrison of Lower Brandon Plantation. Her younger sister Margaret Foushee married Dr. Stone. It is interesting that Margaret's daughter Jane Lenthall Stone married Dr. George Byrd Harrison of Upper Brandon. He was the nephew of Isabella's husband George, so she had a sister and a daughter, living at Brandon. It is also of interest that William Foushee Ritchie (1813-1877), son of Thomas and Isabella H. Foushee Ritchie is buried in the Harrison family cemetery at Brandon as well as his brother Dr. Robert R. Ritchie (1816-1866). Thanks for the detailed information found in your postings on Find a Grave! Mary Knowles, granddaughter of Evelyn Byrd Harrison, daughter of George E. Harrison III of Brandon.

I was wondering if you would be willing to delete one of those photos at his memorial so we could post his new tombstone? That would be a super idea if you will comply? Thanks a million!
