FROM: Della

Just letting all of you know that on or about 3-27-2013, I took a really hard cardiovascular hit; spent a month at local medical facility; as I become stronger, will continue with Find-A-Grave but it may take a while to do all that needs to be done; would appreciate your patience with me.

August 8, 2015

Hello Everyone!

I have a LOT of work to do! .. and "I think I can do that"! (quoting you-know-who when she was starring in a movie and was told, "All you have to do is walk into the church", or something close to that - I think it was 'walk into a church' - been awhile since I've seen it).

Sorry I've "been away" for such a long period of time! I am hoping to receive a new computer in the not-too-distant future as this one appears to be on its last 'gig-a-byte' .. it occasionally works but, most often, 'occasionally DOES NOT'; thus, the reason I've been unable to make corrections, answer e-mails, etc.

For all of you who have said prayers for me and sent messages re. my health, my sincere "Thank You" to each of you.

Thanks to my Precious Lord Jesus Christ, I am now doing well. What happened to me? I died 3-27-2013 about 15 minutes after I sat down at the computer. My daughter heard a small plastic item hit the tile floor and, thinking 'some books had fallen' called out from the living room, "Mom, are you o.k.? (X 2) and, when I didn't answer, came from the living room to check on me and found me lying in the floor very dead and, while calling 911 EMS, she immediately began the chest compressions which were continued by EMS when they arrived; I was taken to the local medical center and someone came to my daughter immediately and said, "This is grave, you need to call your family". Following what I refer to as "receiving the ice-water baptism" (I was frozen) and "having my throat cut" (ventilator) and, "sleeping" for about 12 days/nights, I awakened one afternoon about 3:00 PM, wide-awake, no pain, flat of my back "with hoses and tubes everywhere", still on the ventilator, and was immediately told by my daughter and sister what had happened to me. After about an hour, they went home (having been there 'round the clock) and the doctorS began coming in and telling me what had happened and that I was now known as the "miracle at St. Mary's", one of the doctors telling me, "We know what happened - your heart quit beating but we don't know why" and one telling me that only 1 in 5 usually survive what had happened to me ... and some people did ask me, and still do, if I saw 'a bright light' or 'went through a dark tunnel' to which I answer, "No, but, when I woke up, I felt like I had had the best night's sleep I could ever remember" (12 days/nights - no wonder I felt 'rested'!) .. and, having said all that, "I PERSONALLY know Who holds tomorrow and I know WHO holds my hand". He truly is Magnificent, Majestic - He has been, for many years, and will ALWAYS be my LORD! .. and to all my beautiful family members/friends at Find-A-Grave, please don't forget Psm. 23 and meditate on each of its phrases, .. green pastures .. still waters .. THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death (and do I fully understand that one!), etc., etc. .. and I ask Him to bless each of you every day of your lives ... Love to All of You, Della

Fannie Moddy & Robert Lilly
The headstone posted to both Robert and Fannie's memorial on Find a Grave reflect Robert 1696-1810 and Fannie 1696-1806. This does not match actual.

All other documents indicate Fannie as 1732-1818, including all the information that is posted on Find a Grave memorial.

If Robert and Fannie was actually born in 1696, they would have both been 86 when here daughter Frances was born.

I believe that the headstone for Robert and Fannie was posted incorrectly to the site, as all the information that is on both of their Find a Grave memorial's appears to be accurate.

Hannah Ross & Poll Ann Ross
Hannah Ross Moore and Polly Ann "Polly" Ross Maynard are my cousins. I come through their parents Elihu Scott Ross & Delilah Jane Waggoner. I found a mistake with Ida Pinkston "Pink" Moore, the daughter of Hannah Ross Moore and Thomas Patterson Moore. She has the same marriage date for two of her husbands.....Abraham Glazier & Joel P. Smith.
The marriage date is May 30, 1891.
Her marriage to Abraham Glazier was in Wayne Co., W. Va. and then her marriage to Joel P. Smith was held in Logan Co., W. Va. Both on the same day.
Just thought you would like to know.

Mountain Home
Mountain Home Cemetery is on Trough Fork and that is in Wayne Co. You can go up through Harts and turn off on Trough Fort to get to it. But it is not in Harts.

Lambert-Spry Cemetery errors

You have too many errors in your Lambert memorials: names, relationships bios etc to fix without my ownership – here is the link and correct info so you can fix:

BTW have request the cemetery name be changed to match the entry wall name to avoid some of the confusion
