Bio and Links
Bio Photo "We Are The Story Tellers ……We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story."
~ - Original Author - Della M. Cummins Wright

If you find any errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add to my listing, I'll review them and add them as appropriate, I do need documentation of dates or other information before I will list it. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... Unless related to me, I will transfer management. If you are family or have another good reason, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most transfers will be granted, my transfer rules are more lax than guidelines.

RE: Virginia M Smith
Williams Cemetery, Polkton, NC. Section B2


I don't know how to edit the info and will so appreciate your doing that. Her information is correct on the page for her husband, Leonidas Constanyine Smith, Jr. #42316414

Virginia M Smith
Grace, a Mr. Burris related to you that Virginia's first name was Mary, which was correct. However, her maiden name was Mills, so the middle initial "M" on her grave marker is correct, also.

Thomas William Evans 1832-1892
Hello Grace,
Difference of death day.
His death date is 24 Feb 1892 as per the Pottsville Republican dated the 27 Feb 1892 Saturday, page 1, column 6.
*Listing starts*:
Tower City Jottings
Mr. Thomas Evans, one of the oldest residents of this place, died on Wednesday and is being buried this afternoon. He was ill but a short time. Rev A Oakes, of Williamstown officiated.
Mr David Evans is home from Philadelphia to attend the funeral of his father Thomas Evans. Mr. David Evans is at present in the Reading Railroad office on South Fourth Street Phila. *ends*
Source: Pottsville Free Public Library, a fee
Notes: #1 Research shows that Tower City was "up and running by 1872". #2 Williamstown, Dauphin County is about 1.5 mile from Tower City, Schuylkill County.
Thank You
Darlene Lewis

Headstone Picture-Thomas William Evans 1832-1892
Hello Grace,
Tried to contact you through your email.
Thomas William Evans is my GG Grandfather. I have been looking for his burial place since 1986.
I have his Obituary,Census in Wales,America, his family in documentation.
Can you send a picture of his Headstone to me, if there is one?
Is he listed at Greenwood Cemetery? Or listed because his brother Hugh is buried there? What have I missed?

Can you also list somewhere, the name of the county of his birth in "1832". It was Sirhowy, Monmouthshire, Wales. Others will be able to find his documentation. Not sure exactly what year county borders were realigned, the county renamed. To visit his place of birth in 2016, it would be in the county of Blaenau Gwent as is listed.
Thank you,
Darlene Lewis

Re: Dows family buried at Cedar Hill
Originally they (Wm & Eleanor Dows) were buried at Christ Church Durham Parish in Nanjamoy (which was near RoseMary Lawn). Their son Frank Dows had them moved up to Cedar Hill Cemetary.

Uncle Frank was my grandfather's uncle. My grandfather was Roderick Dows Watson Sr.

I had never seen that photo of William Dows before but I have a few others of him. Thanks.

This is the correct cemetery for George Montgomery Dennis, I found him listed in the Davie County Historical and Genealogical Society cemetery survey, although his last name is spelled Dennise on the survey. His wife was Betty A Graham Dennis, #126128178, also buried here

Thank you for the parent links for Oakey Schuchert. I found a death announcement for Oakey and just posted it. I also found his father's obit, which I sent to the memorial manager. Let me know if you'd like a copy, maybe you already have it. Thanks again!

RE: Damaris Sayres Reeves
No problem with sponsoring. I'm proud to do it for direct ancestors. Are you also related to Damaris or are you just one of those wonderful people who walk thru cemeteries and find those long lost graves and give us wonderful information?
