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).

Ware and Ware, Waller Cemetery, Virginia
Dawn, I believe that I have found a duplication of a cemetery that you and Dylan and Ciana #46516880 have created; some of the names and dates are identical and the physical locations not far apart. They place the Ware Family Cemetery in Spotsylvania which I believe is incorrect. The lake is the separation of the two counties.
In 2009, you created the Ware, Waller Cemetery that is located in Louisa County.
I am going to send her a similar message with the hope that if it is a duplication together you might be able to combine the two. Hope you don't think of this as criticism.

# 26705309 LeRoy Asa Shield

If you could add the findagrave #'s for 2 of his children to create a link to their sites I would be grateful. I don't know how to do that.
Vance I. Shield, Sr is #147930534
Leola Shield Bucklew is 94864280
Then when that is done I will sign up for his site.

The findagrave # for the grandson Vance I. Shield Jr. is #56314371, he is buried in Italy.

Thank you

L C Rose
I sent in an edit suggestion for a correction of L C Rose's name. His name was an initial name and not Larry. If this could be corrected, I would appreciate it.

Thank You

Photo Request for Shirley Alline Campbell
Hi Dawn,

I created a Find A Grave Memorial (#158739510) for my half-sister, Shirley Alline Campbell in March of 2016. I put in a request for a photo of Shirley's headstone or marker. She is buried at Greenlawn Memorial Park, Newport News, VA, in Plot 367, Section O which is the Cheatham Family Plot (her grandparents are buried there as well as other family relatives) She was born in February of 1936 and died the same month because of being born prematurely. I know you took not only all the photos of my Campbell relatives buried at that Cemetery but also the headstones at the Cheatham Family Plot. I know you have taken hundreds of photos in several cemeteries but, was wondering if you might remember a headstone or marker for an infant in the Cheatham Plot? Hoping to hear from you and thanking you for your time.

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. :)
