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.

Selden Wilson Cary
George he is buried at Belmont Cemetery Loudoun Co.Charles,
Glad to help. Took the picture a couple of years ago while gathering info on the Zion Church Cemetery. Her husband Wilson Cary Selden is buried at “Belmont” in Loudoun County. See the attached picture. This cemetery in not listed in Find A Grave and is on private property. Was looking at the Find A Grave memorials and that is how I noticed that there was a request for her picture. Will also include a picture of Ludwell Lee.

In looking at your posted picture requests, it looks like we are researching many of the same individuals. Do you have a connection to Elizabeth?

When I get a chance I will look through your list and see what I can help with. As a start there are no grave markers at Stratford Hall in Westmoreland County, VA. Also Anne Aylett Lee is buried with her husband Richard Henry Lee at the Burnt House Field Cemetery but there is no separate marker for her. The source of her burial there is from his will which stated that he wanted to be buried next to his two wives at BHF. When the cemetery was restored in the 1930s there were three graves found just outside of the original wall.

Bethel Cemetery
You took a photograph of Bethel Cemetery in Sussex County, Virginia in 2012. Do you have record of the location of that cemetery. Is it on private property? Some of my Neblett family members are buried there.

Thanks,
Christine

RE: Dr. Alexander Tinsley
I have that Alexander Tinsley in my Family Tree Maker and he was married to Dare Parran. I have his birth date as 22 November 1832 and death as 16 November 1911. The Alexander in KY is a different person. To my knowledge the Dr. Alexander Tinsley was never in KY and didn't die there. Thank you for bringing this to my attention because I did not have the burial location for him and his wife Dare.

RE: photos
When you open the photo it's showing correctly. For some reason when it attached at the regular size, it didn't attach correctly. All the pictures were taken right side up. I am currently trying to figure out why it is doing that and correcting the ones that uploaded incorrectly. If you can email me the names of the pictures I need to fix, I will be glad to try and get them corrected for you.

Thanks!
