Bio and Links
I have been interested in my family history since I was a child and knew my Grandmother was a member of the DAR. She had a book on an early branch of our family that goes back to the 1600s in Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. I have that book now as well as 3 other published genealogies on my family. I am working to identify all of my immigrant ancestors. I live in Blacksburg, VA, the home of Virginia Tech, where my husband and I met in 1970. We love it here in the mountains of VA. I love cemeteries and hoped that the home we bought in southwestern VA would have one on it so that I could care for someone's family and loved ones. There are lots of small old family cemeteries nearby and I am looking into a local cemetery documentation project. I hope to become a good contributor to this great web site!! Carol

RE: Connell Family
I got the information on Patsy Connell Revercomb's parents from a family researcher. I don't have any other information on them. There is an Elizabeth Connell Blakemore buried in the same cemetery. Apparently her father was William Connell. I don't know if that was the same William Connell as Patsy's father, but I suspect it was. Apparently William Connell came to Mossy Creek to work at the Mossy Creek Iron Works.

William Connell

I am also kin to William and am the first Connell in the William line not to be named William. All of the Williams back to W. Peck were known by their middle names or a nickname. I was planning to visit Union and Monroe county and would like to exchange info with you.

I think almost all of the cemetery has been photographed. When I was there there was another person doing it and he said he had almost done all of it. I will go back and look .

Carol, I have transferred Mary to you. She is no kin to me. When I found the cemetery, I just took a bunch of pictures just in case family was looking for them.

Help on barker
I need your help. Which cemetery is the barker located? Once I enter a picture, I destroy the pictures.

I am not really sure where you get the information. A death certificate is usually right, but in the deep south, I have found them to be 1-4 days off. Many times they post them on a Monday morning when the person passed on a aThursday or Friday. I had the same problem in louisville, KY last month. The records are hand written and many were not the same date as on the headstone. Some were 2-3 years off. The reason was because they were buried in another cemetery and later placed in the Louisville cemetery. Chuck

birth dates
This is the problem with the local genologists. I. Add what is on the headstone. The changes are from those that add exits. Since I live 2800 miles away, I assume the locals know better and I accept their changes.

Jessie C Parker
You wrote: Just have a question about the memorial for Jessie Parker. Is it possible that the middle initial is a "C" rather than an "O"? Do you remember anything about this marker or the surrounding markers? I am searching for information on Jessie C. Parker that would have been my Grandfather's sister. Is it evident from the marker or surrounding area whether this marker is for a man or woman? If you know anything I'd be appreciative. Thanks so much!!

I did a close-up of the stone and noticed that she died in OCT. AND the middle initial in her name looked much more like the C than the O as I had originally put.

I do not know anything about her at all, but USUALLY the feminine form is "Jessie" and the masculine form is "Jesse". I wish you luck with your search...
