Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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. 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="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">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 (:

NOTE TO MYSELF:

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

Marilyn Winstead
Salling Cemetery, Scott County
My name is Marilyn Barnette Winstead. My grand-father was Jimmie D. Barnette. My father was Joe L.Barnette. I was born in Fairview, VA. and raised in Kingsport, TN. I now live in Maryland near Annapolis. My message to you is how very much that I appreciate your time and effort in researching for all the cemetery info in Scott County. I am an avid ancestry buff and your information has, at times, been invaluable. My roots go very deep into Scott County and I sometimes feel that I am kin to everyone who has ever lived there. Ha!Ha! So of there is any way in which I can be of help to your research, please contact me. My email is: mjwinstead@aol.com. Again thank you so very much for your hard work and effort.

RE: Lucy Harrison
I have the whole article and page 296 is the following: "The Virginia historian W. G. Stanard, writing in 1924 identified them as Lucy and Hannah because their father's will implied they were the younger daughters," [Every account of the lightning strike asserts that Harrison's daughters died with him. And it is certain that his was not the only death in the family: his executors listed against his estate L1.16.6 as the price paid for "coffins."] - - Stanard, "Harrison of James River VMHB, XXXII (January 1924), 97) Numbers of other writers have taken the Stanard "supposition," and included the same false information about Lucy. Lucy lived a terrible life, she never returned to America and never again saw her brother, Governor Harrison, nor her children and lived in what could be called abject poverty. Hope you can find the article, some library may have the Virginia Magazine or could find the article by Gerald Steffens Cowden, "Spared by Lightning, The Story of Lucy (Harrison) Randolph Necks."

RE: Lucy Harrison
Look at 94216076, she is the daughter of Benjamin Harrison, signer, not the sister, see the list of his children on the site, and she married a Randolph.

RE: Lucy Harrison
Her number is 94216076, you must have either managed the site or left flowers of remembrance on either Lucy's site or her mother, Anne Carter Harrison's site, there is where I found your email.

Lucy Harrison
Lucy Harrison did not die in the lightning strike that killed her father and two daughters but lived a long life, with several husbands, some children and died ca. 1792-1793 in London, England. See this article:

or google "Spared by Lightning, The Story of Lucy (Harrison) Randolph Necks by Gerald Steffens Cowden.

John B Hammonds
Thank you so much, Crystal. I've been on ancestry for two days now. Yes, lots of my family are from Scott and Lee County. John B Hammonds was my Grandpa, but he died before I was born so I never knew him. Thanks for sharing.

a Civil War soldier
Thank you for all you have done to provide information about our veterans. We are Union County Cemeteries Association (of Tennessee.) We are a very small all volunteer organization dedicated to preservation of our rural history and cemeteries. During the final year of the sesquientinal we are trying to honor our soldiers by posting photos of the final resting places of the CW soldiers from Union Co. Tn. We request permission to use your photo of one of our CW soldiers, Marion Harrison Dyer, on our UCCA website and on our Facebook page. You would be given full credit for these photos. We use both of these as tools to recruit new members. Would you please consider this request?

Sincerely,

Gay H. Morton
