"Geologists have a saying: rocks remember."

1930 ~ 2012

For his final task on the Moon,
Neil left a small package filled with items memorializing previously deceased pioneers in space exploration, including Soviet cosmonauts Yuri Gagarin and Vladimir Komarov, and Apollo 1 astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee.

Now it's Neil's turn, and our turn to memorialize him.

His family released the following statement:

"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

RE: William B. Stovall
Hi Laura,

I am still researching our mutual Stovall line. I am searching for the father of William B. Stovall who died in Bradley County. I was wondering if you can help.

RE: Walter E. Janek, #99835846
Got your msg. about the Janeks. I believe I have added everything you requested. I really look forward to the
"write ups" you plan to send. I most certainly will add them to their respective memorials. I wish I had known the Janeks because I am very interested in that history. I see similar things starting to happen in this country. The country I love and don't want to lose.

Walter E. Janek, #99835846
Laura, I just now realized you sponsored both Mr. & Mrs. Janek's memorials. Your generosity is very much appreciated. It is obvious these two people were dear to you.

RE: Virgil memorials
I've transferred George, Betty & Fidelia to your care. Sounds like you've had more than your fair share of problems lately. My sincere condolences on the loss of your mom.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a happier New Year.

RE: Virgil Family
Laura - Thank you so much for the reply. After adding your family line to my ancestry tree, we are 5th cousins 1x removed ;). Our common ancestor is James A. Virgil (1748 - 1814). I was fascinated with your Virgil history. My line continues down thru William B. Virgil 1775-1859 (brother of Jacob Valentine Virgil) to George William Virgil 1810-1886 to Francis Virgil 1840-1924. Francis "Frank" came to Michigan from Fabius, New York. Around 1894 he left for Seattle, Washington. One of his sons was my grandfather George Virgil 1880-1976. He was born and lived his entire life in Midland, Michigan. His son, my father was Warren Harding "Pete" Virgil 1921-1978. Finding other Virgil family is incredible; love genealogy connections! Feel free to correspond with me thru my email of Take care, Claudia :)
