Please feel free to contact me about any graves I have listed. If I have listed someone that you are related to and I am not and you would like them transferred to you, please just let me know. If we are both related then I will have to think about it. Please feel free to use any of my photo's anywhere you want.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(rev 21:4)

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who cares
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you."
-Poem by Walter Butler Palmer


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.

I apologize that I misread your email, although the email should have gone to the person who actually added the duplicate memorial, as mine was added in 2006 the other one in 2017. When the photo was added to the other memorial I believe the Find A Grave system cleared your photo request. You may want to request a newer photo with the death date. As far as posting "losing" people, hiwis a person to know whether someone had passed, I have several relatives who could not afford the cost to have the death date added once the person died and those stones do not have any death date on them yet. I'm documenting what I find, if someone alerts me that the person is still living I take the memorial down

RE: Duplicate
I see all four duplicates. I must have been way out of it to do that one. Which is the original so I can fix this?

Thank you for letting me know I'm really screwing up. But four 4 times??? 3 in one day?

Sorry. I guess I need more practice...

RE: John Counts
Hello, Barbara.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner. My apologies. Doing all this reading, researching, emailing and posting is really time-consuming.

I have two FB pages that I'd like you to look at and see what you can contribute: John Counts of Glade Hollow and the other, Nealy Ridge, Virginia.

I don't know all that 2nd cousin, 4th uncle stuff. My father was Eugene Edison Counts of Nealy Ridge, my grandfather was Arthur Stuart Counts of NR, my great grandfather is a mystery (out of wedlock) but my great grandmother was Elizabeth Counts of NR, my great great grandfather was William Lewis Counts, my ggg grandfather was Joseph Counts.

Let's talk! Hope to hear from you and learn from you.

You requested a photo for record # 151440586, but that is a duplicate of record # 99904297, which already has a photo.

RE: sponsored
Hi Barbara,

Yes I am related. I sponsored several this morning, so I'm not sure who you were inquiring about...

Most of them were my grandparents and great grandparents.

Thank you for asking! I didn't know they had a FIND A GRAVE until just a few years ago!
