Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Augusta County, Virginia. I started out with findagrave by listing family surnames that I am researching - Albert, Sites, & Stokes.

The photo is the grave of my Granddad's little brother Lewis. Family members couldn't remember the location of the grave. Then one day while looking at an old photo album with my Grandma, I asked about a photo. Grandma's answer was the clue needed to find the grave. What was lost was found.

If you have the time, please stop by and visit my heroes. They have had a great influence in my life and I miss them very much. My Granddad Albert & Grandma Albert, my Great Grandma Stokes and my 2nd Mom.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Please include findagrave in the email subject line.

I will gladly add information to a memorial, but in doing so, I will link the contributor to the information provided. If you do not wish your findagrave name to be linked to the information, please do not provide it. I will not add information without the source of that information.

Thomas Loving
Hi Mike,
I am looking for Thomas Loving, dob 1815, in Clarke County, GA. He was married to Susan Fambrough. He disappeared after the Civil War and we, his Ancestors, have been unable to locate him or his grave. I was wondering if you could tell me if you have any other information on the marker in Oak Hill Memorial Gardens, Find-A-Grave # 124440915, done 1 February 2014.
I am desperate to locate this gravesite.

I sent you some additions to Lewis' memorial. His Certificate of Death states that he was born in 1926.
