Are you related to John Garrison? He was my 5th great grand uncle.

Wise Co., VA Poor Farm Cemetery
I noticed that you are interested in the Poor Farm Cemetery, which was at one time located on what are now the grounds of UVa College at Wise. The cemetery was "relocated" but its whereabouts seem to be unknown.

Might you have any information that would help in locating the relocated remains of those originally buried in the Poor Farm Cemetery?

Thank you.

Thelma Castle
Hi, Opal. I am the daughter of Roy Castle/Cassell--changed the spelling--who is the brother of Bennie Castle. Erika Castle is the daughter of Joe Castle from Clintwood and the granddaughter of Bennie and Thelma McClain Castle. She is looking for information on Thelma. She was told Thelma was born on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma. She and her brother were taken by Pearl McClain for whatever reason and raised in Virginia. Do you have any information on Thelma's childhood? Thank you. God bless.
