Bio and Links
Bio Photo My main interest has been in the Confederate Section of Old City Cemetery here in Lynchburg. With there being more than 2,200 soldiers resting there from all of the states of the Confederacy, the labor of love has taken quite some time. So many of these men left home to never be heard from again. I am often times humbled walking around in this section. The staggering number of young and old men whose families have no idea where they are. I get the greatest feeling of elation when a current family member finds one of these men and the circle is closed when they are back with family. I owe the greatest debt of gratitude for member LJH who has helped me numerous times in correctly identifying the men. With the Confederate Section fairly well covered, I have moved on to Presbyterian Cemetery here in town, as of 12/31/2016 with yet another new camera.

*Please do not post death certificates on any of my memorials.*

If you are a family member to anyone of the memorials I have posted, I will not hesitate transferring the memorial over to your care. That is why I do this. All I ask is that you please use some tact when requesting a transfer or making a suggestion for an edit.

If you have a better quality photo of any grave marker than the ones I have posted on my memorials, please post it. If not, please don't post it. Thank you. I put a lot of effort into taking good quality photos. These last couple of years have been a learning experience, but I think I have got the hang of it, finally. I hope you don't mind my posting a photo to your memorial, even though you may already have one or more up. ***If you do not want my photo on your memorial, please let me know and I will remove it***. It is so very important to me to take a good quality photo as I want to make sure the info I put on a memorial is correct on the chance that a family member will find the information and be able to use it. I always spend a little extra time wiping off grass clippings or bird poop, but that is all. Sunny days are best for a good photo, morning shadows really make a stone pop. Photoshop is your friend as well :)

RE: Lizzie Irby
Darrell,

Thanks very much for the transfer offer....I accept!

All of Lizzie's immediate family left Virginia for New Orleans where they are all buried. Her Irby ancestors were from Halifax County, so there are none in Lynchburg to link.

Her younger brother William Ratcliffe Irby became a prominent man in New Orleans, but had only one child.

Read about him here:

I so appreciate the transfer of little Lizzie's memorial and will take very good care of her!

Gratefully,
Gloria

Thank you for working so hard to take a good photograph of my ancestor. I cannot walk the cemeteries to do it for myself and I'm overjoyed when a contributor such as you offers his wares on Find a Grave.

Thank you so much for locating this grave and taking the photo. I wish all of the memorials on Find A Grave had the headstone photos. I know its a big job to do so and there are folks like yourself taking the time to do so. Sorry I didn't get back to you right away. Life keeps me very busy caring for my mother. Have a great day.

RE: John B Nowlin Jr
In the cemetery book where I got his information is showing that he is buried in Row 1 which the survey was started nearest to the church. Others buried in the same row is Ernest L. Bradley, Ned Bradley, Anna F. Bradley, John B. Nowlin, Jr., Oliver Burks, Jr., Cora Burks McDaniel and others. It doesn't list Ethel but if the marker was covered over they wouldn't have know she was buried there. I would have imagined that their must have been a marker at his grave if the surveyor listed his name. Thanks for the work you do. Henry Webber

I am pretty sure that this is M. C. Mason. He is my great-great Uncle. He died 24 Oct 1874. He was accidentally shot. If you would kindly consider changing the listing I would appreciate it

Thank you so much for taking the great photo of Margaret's memorial and attaching it to her page. I was just in Lynchburg one week ago and loved seeing all of the dogwoods and azalea's in bloom. I was only there for four hours on my way back to California or I would have taken photo's myself... Please know that all of your efforts on find a grave are very appreciated. Thank you again.

Thanks once again for your great efforts in photographing tombstones for families that won't be able to visit! Thanks for going the extra step to fill in the missing information that the stone provided! You are gifted and very much appreciated! Hope you are blessed because you are a blessing!

RE: Bridget Hannagan
Thank you so much for your diligence. It's entirely possible she's not interred there, too.

Thank you for capturing a photo of her husband, Charles!

RE: Edit for Huse Landrum
Thanks for the note. My wife's grandmother was Elizabeth Landrum, who was the daughter of James Franklin Landrum, who was the son of Andrew Lewis Landrum, who was the son of William Riley Landrum. That is where the common link begins. Your great grandfather, William M. Landrum, and Andrew Lewis Landrum were brothers.

I don't have any information beyond William Riley Landrum and his wife Catherine Neal. Anything you could provide would be helpful and appreciated.

My email is dreineke1@atlanticbb.net and my phone number is 301-724-3232.

I'm sorry to have tried to mess up good information.
