Bio and Links
Bio Photo I currently live in the Richmond, Virginia area. I have been researching since about 1991. I recently started adding photographs to my research.

I enjoy walking old cemeteries and documenting the grave stones for families requesting such information and also to preserve in history the head stones of our lost generations. There are so many grave markers that are unreadable and unknown to the future generations. Once lost, they are lost forever and unknown to future generations and families.

I also have taken the task of documenting as many veterans as possible. They served our country and need not be forgotten, but saved for future generations to remember.

Mr 2X Ggrandfather was a civil war casualty at Fraser's Farm in Virginia. You made his Find A Grave memorial, are you also kin to him? How did you find out about him, he is not listed in Hollywood Cemetery, another person asked me to remove saying he was buried there. Any ideas or help is appreciated. Thanks Lin Griffin

Pvt Thomas W Epes
Thank you for posting this picture.
I am doing research on this person who is related to Pvt Epes on his Mother's side of the family.

My friend actually placed this memorial at Hollywood cemetery

Would you mind transferring this entry to me?

He was born in 1821. I don't have a birthday. Thanks for doing this. This is the culmination of a great mystery about my GGrandfather.

Gate Keeper,
I am so appreciative of all the work you have done on cemeteries in Richmond. On Fannie's listing, the wrong mother is listed (A Mr. Carl someone).
Her REAL mother is Mary Jane Overton Howard, whose memorial you also did and her number is 57966017.
Don't know whether it is possible to indicate that some of the siblings who are listed are actually half-siblings of Fannie's (By her father's first wife). Those would be Edward, Kate, Julia, Rose, Florence and Mary.

Thank you.

Lucy Taylor Satterwhite # 92107096
I finally found Robert Daniel Satterwhite's death certificate and made a memorial for him in the Satterwhite Burying Ground. He was Lucy's second husband and if you want me to send it to you please email me at I noticed that you have all of the Taylor's under your care and will transfer him if you would like.
