PLEASE NOTE - I will NOT process edits or transfer requests that are left in my messages. PLEASE SEND AN SAC via the EDIT TAB for these requests!
I'm Mandy, and I'm a happily married mother of one living in central VA. I've always loved cemeteries, and thanks to this site I've found a great reason to spend my free time there!! Any nice weekend or evening you might run into me and my lovely assistants (son and dogs) at a cemetery in the area.
Currently I am working on documenting, in its entirety, Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, VA. It is the second largest cemetery in Virginia, behind Arlington. This may take a while! I have to give credit to the many members who have listed memorials from Blandford already: Paula, Barbara, George, and many others, but most of all Susan - you are the best!
To my knowledge, I am of no relation to the memorials I've created, except for those listed here. If you find any errors or omissions in any of them, please feel free to contact me and I will correct them expediently.
I prefer that you use the Suggest a Correction function under the "Edit" tab to request additions/changes or transfers - it makes it much easier for me to find the specific memorial that way. If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send! If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)

|Lois Koenig||RE: Ruffin Family|
Thank you. I will look at the possibility of doing more. Thank you for your work. Lois
|Lois Koenig||Ruffin Family|
Mandy: My sisters and I just visited Petersburg and Blandford Cemetery this past week. We are researching our Ruffin family and knew some of them were buried at Blandford. What a massive job you are taking on to go through that cemetery. I did take pictures and can contribute them to your project and/or to the Find A Grave project. I pulled your name up on the site under the gravsstone of William A. Ruffin. (Are you a Ruffin family member?)
I was also wondering about the upkeep or lack of upkeep at the cemetery. Do you know any background about that?
I am interested in any information you can supply. My direct e-mail is Loikalane@aol.com. Thank you, Lois Koenig
Thank you for the photo, it was very helpful.

|Garland Lucas||Boykins @ Blandford|
Mandy, thank you so much for the pictures of the Boykins at Blandford in Petersburg. However, three of them uploaded sideways when I tried to put them in my tree. Do you have another of them, or perhaps can re-take, at your convenience?
|Virginian||John Wesley Spain, Jr., Memorial # 5122780|
Thanks for letting me know about the John Wesley Spain, Jr., Memorial # 5122780. When I checked for his name in Blandford Cemetery on Findagrave and didn't find him I therefore added him.
I checked the Memorial # you gave me and found that he is listed in a Virtual Cemetery and that is why he didn't show up in the Blandford Cemetery Listings.
Thank you for adding the Felts family grave photos from Blandford Cemetery. I really appreciate your doing so!

|Laurie Wilson||Stanley Durwood McGilvary|
Thanks for the great photo.
|Virginian||Thanks for being a Photo Volunteer!|
Thanks for taking the pictures of the marker and the lots for J. Thomas Wilkerson; his wife, Sarah Ann Brayden Wilkerson; and their son, George W. Wilkerson, at Blandford Cemetery and adding them to Findagrave.
Blandford Cemetery Records online has the family listed as Wilkerson and Wilkinson depending on the person listed in the records.
I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day!
|Peggy P||Thank you|
