Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other ante-bellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

Sorry George,
I have no idea which house it is. I got my information from a p/o in the genealogy library.

thanks for the link, good info there! I did edit the DOD, you had June but the obit is in January, and it was a Tuesday edition (7th) and said he had died on Sunday so that would be 5th instead of 6th (even the UVA site has that wrong). Not sure if we'll ever find exactly where he is, plus of course obits got the 2 cemeteries mixed up even back then, so who knows? thanks again,
Florence

RE: Lillian Ainsley Alexander Dowdy
Thanks, George. I do appreciate it very much.

Do you know anything at all about May Budd Dowdy Martin, wife of Robert Spencer Martin; she died in 1975 and he in 1977. They might also be at the Oakwood Cemetery but I'm not sure.

Still looking for the other two Samuel Taylor Dowdys too and if you know anything at all about either of them, I love to hear from you.

Thank you for telling me about the website. Unfortunately they are the ones misspelling my great grandfather's middle name.
