Bio and Links
Bio Photo For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member of your family, who isn't related to me, and you can add a biographical sketch I will be glad to transfer it to you. Many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so. I will not transfer in mass numbers.

RE: Mary Jane
Thank you Virginia, I appreciate the reply. I've been trying to find information Andrew and Mary "Polly" Porter Long for some time. It's a bit of a mystery about what happened to him. He is mentioned in his brother, James D Long's will of 1858 as deceased, and James leaves money to Andrew's son. I've never found what happened or how Andrew died. Maybe more information will turn up some time.

John Foster Preston
Virginia if you have been researching this line I am sure I have it, but I don't want to go through it publicly, it has several scans and some explanation. It would have been known sooner if it was easy. Jim Preston

John David Nall family
Am interested in a group picture that was placed on the page of the wife of John David Nall. Would like to learn the names of those in the picture. Also, listed as his children is a Benjamin Nall but none of his living relatives have any info on or memory of him. Thank you, virginia, for all you've done to bring the past to present family members...Diane Armstrong.

RE: Anonymous
Hi Virginia. Thank you for the information on James Hedgecock #73312380. I will add it to his memorial. We have also had problems with people who go by Anonymous. And sometimes the information that they give you is worthless. Take care and have a wonderful week. Patrick

Agatha Rohrbaugh
Hi Virginia,
Thank you for your kindness in posting Agatha Rohrbaugh's death certificate.
She was my grandmothers sister. Her birth year is 1881, that certificate is wrong. And surprisingly so, her own sister was the informant. But looking at 8 other sources 1885,1900,1910,1920,1930,1940 census, and Social Security Application, they all put her birth around 1881.And the one that puts it all in cement is her father was born in 1858, he would of been only 13 years old. As for leaving it posted, that's fine, I will attach a note that says about what I just said to you.
