DUE To a Health issue, I am running behind on catching up on emails and corrections...Please be patient|
I am in healing mode after almost meeting my maker, he chose my work on earth wasnt done.
I once again thank you all for your prayers and am working on corrections and additions.
God Bless You All
**** NEWS ALERT****
I have Many Relatives, Close and Distant Whose graves were NOT marked due to no funds (1600's- present )or so long ago that the stones have deteriorated into the earth
Family Traditions and Family Bibles and Death Records Let many of us know where they rest. So just because there is no stone does that mean they Shouldn't be included in family lines?
Come on people a true Genealogist digs to find the lines...and doesn't jump over those very important limbs of many trees just because there is no marker to prove that they lay X <-- here.
Find A Grave gives us an "Unknown" choice for burials or cremations, etc. and if it's a known fact that these people are dead, and they will most likely never be officially linked to any particular burial place, they also have a right to be remembered and to be linked to their other family members.
I will gladly link those who have an unknown status.
That can easily be changed if they are proved to be in any particular place.
I have been an avid cemetery hunter for at least 35+ years, My Mom had us (her children) off gallivanting cemeteries when she started researching my fathers Sutphin clan in the 70's
While growing up many a weekend was spent looking for long lost graveyards and feeling the excitement of finding the final resting place of our relatives..
All of her children when traveling still go through the local phone books for any Sutphin residents..lol
What Mom instilled into us is a gift in my eyes..to remember and honor those before us and never forget where we came from.
Thank you Mom for being my inspiration and my hero, Without your Love, Support, knowledge and patience of my endless supply of question and your roomfull of notebooks and your years of listening to the family histories told to you by so many this Crazy journey would not be possible.
My Lines of research are are Sutphin, Gilmore, Glick, Goads, Nesters, McPeak and all related families in my Beautiful part of Southwest Virginia
My husbands family lines are Armentrout, Argenbright, Blackwell Burns, McGown and Tylers of Rockbridge County Va. and surrounding counties
I happily accept any help ,corrections, new Friends and family members.
We are all on the same quest of finding our forefathers and our kin :)
A lot of the pictures I have posted are newer graves,when I cemetery hunt, I take pictures of all the stones and resting places new and old, that time or weather will allow I never wish to upset any of the families..I simply am trying to save some steps for future genealogist and maybe allow a family member far away to see a picture of their kins final resting place.
Many of the stones I attempt to photo document need a little enhancement to read the names and dates..due to the controversy of shaving creams,chalk and other sources..I use Herbal Choice, an all natural shave cream.
Special thanks to my Find A Grave mates Rita McKale, Ron Stewart, Victoria True, Denise Horton , Rich Kreiss for Your help being a sounding board when I'm frustrated and when I am stuck in a "That can't be right" moments.
A Thank You for his help and patience goes to my Friend Michael Nestor as I attempt to figure out the Goads and Nesters that touch so many of the family lines in My part of Southwest Va.
Thanks goes to my partner in Crime ,My Snake & spider killer ,Bee and Black Bear chaser offer.
My Hubby :)

It's carroll county. I found it just today. It's back in the woods about 2 miles by itself on an old logging trail. I believe it was an old home place in the early 1800,s. While I was walking I came across some stones that were placed there many yrs ago like a border used for a property line. I kept walking and found the grave in the woods.very interesting.

|Brushbeater||RE: William Webb Cemetery|
Glad you are feeling better!
Yeah, found it quite by accident, really. On my way to another cemetery, I drove by the sign for the Puckett-Webb Cemetery. Did not recognize the name so I figured I'd have a look see. Got to the tops and immediately recognized the site as "William Webb" from the pictures on Find A Grave. So, last night I petitioned Find A Grave to add the AKA and new GPS coordinates.
Can't promise I won't be asking for your help again! Let me know if I can help out up at this end.
Best and wishing you a continuing recovery,
|Brushbeater||William Webb Cemetery|
Hi again Donna,
I know I'm wearing you out with this stuff, but can you give me some directions to the William Webb Cemetery. The Find A Grave description used to include GPS coordinates, which I followed, but they took me uphill, through the tree farm off of Fireside Dr./Rt 814 but that turned out to be the James Nester Webb Cemetery. I know you've been there, but golly I just cannot find it.
Thanks as always

Stopped by Pine View Primitive in Laurel Fork today to catch a few photo requests for some folks. I took a look all over to see if there was a marker for Mr. Bolt but could find none for him. Figured I'd give you a heads up.
thanks Donna for checking into this.
