Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my new website, Peninsula Genealogy, if you have ties to the Hampton Roads area. I'm documenting obituaries, marriage, birth and death records there, and linking all obits back to findagrave so people can see additional info on their loved ones.

I have been doing my genealogy for over 13 years now. I started visiting the local cemeteries in my area looking for my relatives. By doing that, I realized how much I like to go there and how I enjoy helping others find their relatives. I am willing to do cemetery lookups in my area (Hampton, VA), so email me if need some help. Will also look up obituaries at our local library. I just love to do research!

I am currently transcribing and posting pics of cemeteries around Hampton VA. I have completed most of the smaller cemeteries (less than 1000 graves) and a few larger ones. I'm hoping by doing all this, it will make it easier for many people to find their loved ones.

My maternal grandfathers family was from MA (Mackay, Martin, McGlew, Traill)

My maternal grandmothers family was from VA, NC and PA (Gildner, Broadstreet, May, Bridgland, Smith, Arnold).

My paternal grandfathers family was from WY, NE, WI and SD (Allman, Caddy, Simons, Carberry, Rogers, Stuart)

My paternal grandmothers family was from CA, Washington, DC and OH. (Ehrmantraut, White, Gerhold, Dolph).

My husbands family is from NC and SC. (Orr, Malone, Boone, Clement, Mckay, Stewart, Vaughan Garrett, Hatchell).

Hi there, this is my first time researching this site so I'm not exactly sure how it works so bare with me. You have my grandmother, Nannie Koonce Brown Ward, listed as actually being her mother, Ina Olivia Koonce Brown. Nannie Koonce Brown Ward was the spouse of Charles Francis Ward. Her mother was Ina, her father was William C. Brown, and her siblings were Graham Brown, Linda Brown Frost, Laurie Brown, Jack Brown, Ben Brown, William K Brown. I am not sure who Christopher Columbus Brown is, but he is listed as being Ina Koonce Browns spouse. Also, Nannie Koonce Brown Ward (Nan Ward) just passed away on May 13, 2017. Thank you. :)

Ruby Mae Vassar is my Aunt

You have my Aunt as one of your entries. Ruby Mae Vassar, and if at all possible, I was wondering if I would be able to get a transfer so that I can add her into the family. She was my grandfather's sister. Thank you.

Is there anyway you can cut around the stone and take another picture. More than 1/2 the stone is missing in the picture. Thank you

William Greene Bertha A Bartz
William Greene is correct with Lillian Abraham and her children, but, his wife is not the correct Bertha Bartz. His wife is Bertha Augusta Marie Bartz, born Mountian Wisconsin, Died Skamania, Washington State. Bertha's parents were Frederick and Augusta Bartz and she was born in Germany.

The Berta Bartz you have is from the Bartz clan out of Outagamie county I believe.

I believe there are some errors on Lowell Roland Barr's memorial page. The listing says that "Gilbert Lowell Barr" was Lowell Roland Barr's father, when in actuality, Gilbert Lowell Barr, was his grandfather. His actual father was "Gilbert Haven Barr" who is listed as his sibling. You can tell by the dates that there is an error.

Also, it lists Margaret L. Barr as Lowell Roland Barr's sister. This is also an error. Margaret L. Barr is his aunt (Gilbert Haven Barr's oldest sister).
