Bio and Links
Bio Photo ****ATTENTION**** To the lady that contacted me about your father (he was a Lane in Holston View), and how I knew him. Will you please contact me again? I am soooo sorry, but your email was deleted by accident. It isn't even in my trash folder. I would love to transfer his memorial to you.

Have been doing genealogy with my mom, Beth Robinette for several years. I love going to cemeteries and photographing the graves. My main lines of interest are Bloomer, Lane, Johnson, Hammonds, Peters, Penley, France, Herron, Roberts, Holmes, Napier and Robinette. Most are located in and around Scott Co. If you have relatives in Scott Co., you are most likely related to me or my husband. Since most of the people of Scott Co., are related somehow. I'm sure it is like that in a lot of places but it is prevalent there. My husband Ricky helps me but he does not have a Find A Grave profile. So we just both use this one, though he doesn't want credit (:My mom takes care of the rest (: Most of which are in Carroll and Grayson Co., VA

EDITS AND OTHER INFO: Please use the edit tab on the memorial. I will respond ASAP. I am not on the computer daily so it may take me a few days to respond, but I will respond. I LOVE getting new information.

MEMORIALS I MANAGE: I try me best to connect everyone. Sometimes this isn't possible due someone else that has a memorial I need to link to and they have not responded. I usually will then try and hyper link them. This is the code:< a href="">Name< /a>XXXXXXX is where you put memorial number.You will also have to delete the space between < and a in the beginning and end of the code.

CEMETERIES I AM WORKING ON:1. Depews Chapel. I photographed the entire cemetery and am adding photos and memorials.2. Lawson Confederate Memorial. I am going through and adding more info.3. Quillin Cemetery. I am adding more info.

NOTE: I try and omit living survivors from obituaries I post, except for my line and those which are several years old. I know it is public record but I don't want to upset anyone. If I have forgotten to omit and you want them removed, let me know. Also I have posted obituaries in the pictures section. I just found out last month (April 2013) that F.A.G. does not want this done. I think I have removed most of them off my memorials, but if I have put one on your memorial please let me know and I will remove it. Most are from the 1920's-1970's.I have no way of knowing which ones I put them on. I wish F.A.G would let us access the pictures we posted. It is in the profile section. I was trying to be helpful. I'm sorry ):

NOTE: I type up the obituaries EXACTLY how they are written, mispellings and all (:

Dear Ancestor Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone It reaches out to all who care 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. Author -Unknown

Ms. Lane,
I'm Phil Jones and Iva was my Mother. Her memorial
has been transferred to me and I am sending you this note to ask if you would delete your obit of my Mother so as I can have room to post my personal
photos. Her memorial is #88256308.
Thank you so much for your help with this.

Graves of relatives
I am the great grand-daughter of George William Morrison and Eunice J. Whitlock Morrison and Jane Yopp Morrison. I am interested in finding where in the Fall Branch United Methodist cemetery they are buried. I still have family in Tennessee, Gray, Tn. to be exact and do visit once a year. I am interested in locating the graves so we as a family can have their graves marked. I have been working on the Family history. I did notice in the posting that Jane Yopp Morrison's name was George William Simpson, which is incorrect. He was a Morrison. Amy hicks, my sisters daughter in law entered the wrong info. George was born in 1846 in Scotland in Ross & Cromarty area. came to the USA abt. 1850 with his sister Hannah. I haven't found full info yet. If you can make the changes and e-mail me at I would appreciate it very much. Thank you in advance. Sara Jayne Morrison Shotts, Arcadia Fl.

Memorial # 71541448
Hi Crystal, Alta Kate Lay Quillin was my Grand Aunt. However, I have no real first-hand information about her. I am originally from Gate City, VA. There are a couple of pieces of information that are confusing about the data I have on Alta Kate. The photo posted in your Find A Grave memorial of her headstone shows a spelling of Quillin and a year of death as 1946. Alta Kay’s death certificate has the spelling of Quillen and her year of death as 1948. The death certificate informant is E. H. Quillen (Emory Horton Quillen as you so duly noted in her memorial). I am assuming that the headstone was probably an after-the-fact effort by relatives. As such, they probably mis-remembered her married name spelling and the year of death.
Also, her death certificate indicated the cause of death was “probable coronary occlusion due to hypertensive heart disease.” You stated in her Find A Grave memorial that she drowned in Big Moccasin Creek. Big Moccasin flows through Snowflake where she and Horton were living per the 1940 US census. Drowning and arterial occlusion could be one in the same I suppose but I am curious to know how you came upon the drowning information. Perhaps it was in her obituary. If so, I would really like a copy of her obit. I do have a photo of her but it is not very good. I cropped it from a photo of her with her five sisters. The nu-cropped photo is not very clear either. If you do have her obituary and wouldn’t care to share it, how to we communicate?
By the way, all you Find A Grave people deserve a lot of praise for all the legwork you do.
Thanks Danny (aka Dan) Ramey

RE: Photos of Wentz Holmes
Thank you. I know next to nothing about him and his side of the family. I met a few members when my grandmother Alpha was buried next to him in 2009, they said I looked like him.

Dutton Hood's photo
Can you please tell me which wife he's pictured with? (I would like on of him with Sarah Steadman, as they are direct "ascendants" of mine.

Also, do you have any information about Albert's parents, and other ancestors? I think Vachel's father's name was Right, but that's about all I've got.

Thank you for your help.
