I now live in Virginia. Since moving here, I have been actively seeking early Virginia history.There is a wealth of early history in my local area that has not been written.I have been prowling the woods for old homesteads and graves.
My neighbor, Larry Newcomb, and I, have been finding and photographing old burial grounds as well as individual graves in the middle of nowhere.
