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="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 (:

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

RE: Edits
Hi Crystal - thanks for all your work. You have a lot of energy!!
I think I should tell you that I had a bad experience with a scammer a couple of weeks ago and I am fairly certain that I "found" him by accidentally clicking an ad at findagrave.com. I had been having trouble with my computer slowing and eventually causing my browser (fairfox) to crash whenever I had used findagrave. I was dumb in letting the scammer take over my computer but his documents said he was with "Microsoft Windows Support." Clearly he was not. I refused his blackmail offer and quickly disconnected from the internet and my son was able to clean my computer. It was a bad experience and since then I have heard that this particular scammer has hit a lot of my friends. I downloaded an ad blocker and now findagrave runs fine. If you have a way to tell the folks at findagrave.com that they have some bad people buying ads, it would be good to tell them.

RE: Sarah Wood
Thank you for the positive response! There have been a couple things surface recently that are going to rock the established Lawson genealogy as we know it! If Sarah Lawson-Wood is your direct ancestor feel free to email me directly and I will keep you in the loop of communications if you would like.

These are the same person but one is listed under the "Conkin" surname. Dates are virtually the same. Photo is with the "Lane" and spouses for both are the same man. This came to light through a photo request for "Conkin". Thanks Val
