Bio and Links
Bio Photo My main interest has been in the Confederate Section of Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. With there being more than 2,200 soldiers resting there from all of the states of the Confederacy, the labor of love has taken quite some time. So many of these men left home to never be heard from again. I am often times humbled walking around in this section. The staggering number of young and old men whose families have no idea where they are. I get the greatest feeling of elation when a current family member finds one of these men and the circle is closed when they are back with family. I owe the greatest debt of gratitude for member LJH who has helped me numerous times in correctly identifying the men. With the Confederate Section fairly well covered, I have moved on to Presbyterian Cemetery here in town, as of 12/31/2016 with yet another new camera.

*Please do not post death certificates on any of my memorials.*

If you are a family member to anyone of the memorials I have posted, I will not hesitate transferring the memorial over to your care. That is why I do this. All I ask is that you please use some tact when requesting a transfer or making a suggestion for an edit.

If you have a better quality photo of any grave marker than the ones I have posted on my memorials, please post it. If not, please don't post it. Thank you. I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

I am having trouble identifying Sgt Norvell who is buried there. Lucy W Norvell Otey was a descendant of William Norvell and Ann Wiatt, but I don't think he was in the Rev War. This William's father was William Norvell who married Martha Butler, who certainly was old enough but not buried in Lynchburg. Can you find out the full name of Sgt. Norvell or have him email me directly at

M G Mason in spring hill cem
I am pretty sure that this is M. C. Mason. He is my great-great Uncle. He died 24 Oct 1874. He was accidentally shot. If you would kindly consider changing the listing I would appreciate it

Thank you so much for taking the great photo of Margaret's memorial and attaching it to her page. I was just in Lynchburg one week ago and loved seeing all of the dogwoods and azalea's in bloom. I was only there for four hours on my way back to California or I would have taken photo's myself... Please know that all of your efforts on find a grave are very appreciated. Thank you again.

Thanks once again for your great efforts in photographing tombstones for families that won't be able to visit! Thanks for going the extra step to fill in the missing information that the stone provided! You are gifted and very much appreciated! Hope you are blessed because you are a blessing!

RE: Bridget Hannagan
Thank you so much for your diligence. It's entirely possible she's not interred there, too.

Thank you for capturing a photo of her husband, Charles!

RE: Edit for Huse Landrum
Thanks for the note. My wife's grandmother was Elizabeth Landrum, who was the daughter of James Franklin Landrum, who was the son of Andrew Lewis Landrum, who was the son of William Riley Landrum. That is where the common link begins. Your great grandfather, William M. Landrum, and Andrew Lewis Landrum were brothers.

I don't have any information beyond William Riley Landrum and his wife Catherine Neal. Anything you could provide would be helpful and appreciated.

My email is and my phone number is 301-724-3232.

I'm sorry to have tried to mess up good information.

Lucy (Hardy) Hubbard Photo.....
Hello Darrell, Thank you for the grave location photograph. Much appreciated. I'll be done with my other projects in the next week and I'll look at it again. Letter for Prospect Methodist came back, the address is Appomattox for a church over 50 miles away in Prospect. Weird...
Have a nice weekend.

Thank you for bringing Mary to my attention. I don't know that she would have been easy to pick up with documents, but once given the needle was able to find the kudos to you! Thanks once again for all your efforts! You do great work! Trust that you know how much you are appreciated!

Thank you sooooo much for your time, effort, resources, talent and willingness to take the photos for Rev James Thomas "Tom" Flowers, Rena Mann Martin, Vivian Mann Cawthorne, Charles Wiles Flowers, Lee C. Hubbard Flowers, Marshall Hunter Flowers, Anna Mayberry Mann and put them on the sites. You do nice work. It is always good to find a stone when putting a site on from a death certificate...confirmation! Thanks for sending the information you found. I will look into the other daughter of Ann's. You have been a huge blessing to add another piece of the puzzle in linking these people's lives. May you be blessed for blessing others!
