My son & I have combined his love of U.S. military history and my love of genealogy & art into a fun and educational pursuit.

Our enthusiasm began after a springtime trip to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virgina. We were overwhelmed ... the riot of color from the dogwoods mixed with the somber grays of the stones stole my breath away, while the famous names of JEB Stuart & George Pickett had my young man whooping (albeit quietly) & tossing his cap in the air. The die was cast and since then we traveled many miles and poured through many books & documents together. We traveled yearly into Pennsylvania exploring our family roots. You may have found us in the Marx Room of the Easton Library, or haunting the cemeteries of Montour & Columbia counties ...

We spent many years working through our old home county of Gloucester and the adjoining Mathews county photographing & transcribing the cemeteries.

My son is now heading into his 3rd year of college and I am settled into my retirement in the gorgeous mountains of north Georgia. My dream of living near the Appalachian Trail is finally reality! A hiker's Dream Come True!

It's been over 12 years now, but I am still working through the cemeteries of my beloved Gloucester and Mathews counties, adding memorials and updating information as I can.

If you should find an error or would like me to transfer a loved one to your care, please pop me a note.

Ex-County Keeper for Gloucester, Virginia.
