|Bio and Links|
I'm Bruce Paul, a long time resident of Bedford County, Virginia.
I enjoy history, photography and the outdoors.
You are welcome to use my photos for personal use. Please give me credit as "Contributor #46829150" and reference this website.
Although most of what I contribute here is photography related, I'm a map/plat sort of person. I enjoy the challenge of finding "places".
I appreciate the updates and stories that all of you have provided! I don't have time to respond with a Thanks for each one, but rest assured I review them all for consistency and take care of them as soon as I can.
I'm currently working on the LOG sister cemeteries (Longwood, Oakwood, Greenwood) in Bedford, VA. To be more specific I'm in Greenwood taking photographs, working my way south from Longwood Av. Note that you can view GPS coordinates in the photo EXIF data if you download that photo.
Thanks to the Bedford Genealogical Society for updates, the online Bedford Cemetery Records (Ramaker.Com), and the resources of the Bedford Museum for their help in this endeavor.
Also a thanks to the VA Dance Studio in Forest, VA (vadance.com) for letting me use their studio as a comfortable place to organize and upload my photos. I confess... I'm a dedicated Ballroom Dancer.

Thomas Sherwood Dobyns, Sr
Life has gotten too complicated
1.I tried to National Military Gravesite and he is not listed.
2.The info I have came from an Obit.
However, I can not navigate the legacy.com
site anymore. They changed it so it doesn't
show old obits. Guess the newspapers want to
be able to sell them.
3.I tried the City of
Bedford and they have changed the direct line
to the cemetery I only got a switchboard.
4. I tried the Longwood/Greenwood ancestor locator website and it didn't come up.
I have an old computer, old browser and I am old. So sorry, Thomas Sherwood Dobyns, Sr.
I give up.
|Marcia De Sarro-Witt||Carrie Louise Laughlin Sperberg Dobyns|
The correct married surname was Dobyns.
Sorry I was holding too many reins in my hand.
Too much fish in the fire, so to speak.
Do you have the phone or email of the owner of the property. Have you approached him before and he is not cooperative? If so, I may not want to
anger him. Understandable, some people just
don't want Hunters, Realtors or Northeners tarrying about afoot..

could you take apix of his grave while you
are still in Greenwood.
He was son of
Carrie Louise Laughlin Sperberg Dobyns.
When she died he was 10 years old and reared
by her 60 year old mother, Alice Bane Laughlin
|Marcia De Sarro-Witt||Carrie Laughlin sperberg Dobyns|
She was reared in Otter Hill region
where the family farm was located.
Perhaps the Laughlin family might
help you locate her grave?
She married Wm Whitfield Dobyns.
She was widowed twice. Died of
fire burns from a heath.
