Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my new website, Peninsula Genealogy, if you have ties to the Hampton Roads area. I'm documenting obituaries, marriage, birth and death records there, and linking all obits back to findagrave so people can see additional info on their loved ones.

I have been doing my genealogy for over 13 years now. I started visiting the local cemeteries in my area looking for my relatives. By doing that, I realized how much I like to go there and how I enjoy helping others find their relatives. I am willing to do cemetery lookups in my area (Hampton, VA), so email me if need some help. Will also look up obituaries at our local library. I just love to do research!

I am currently transcribing and posting pics of cemeteries around Hampton VA. I have completed most of the smaller cemeteries (less than 1000 graves) and a few larger ones. I'm hoping by doing all this, it will make it easier for many people to find their loved ones.

My maternal grandfathers family was from MA (Mackay, Martin, McGlew, Traill)

My maternal grandmothers family was from VA, NC and PA (Gildner, Broadstreet, May, Bridgland, Smith, Arnold).

My paternal grandfathers family was from WY, NE, WI and SD (Allman, Caddy, Simons, Carberry, Rogers, Stuart)

My paternal grandmothers family was from CA, Washington, DC and OH. (Ehrmantraut, White, Gerhold, Dolph).

My husbands family is from NC and SC. (Orr, Malone, Boone, Clement, Mckay, Stewart, Vaughan Garrett, Hatchell).

There are no words.......
Words fall short to adequately convey my deepest heart~felt gratitude for such valuable help (from one who doesn't even know me) than the last extremely frustrating past 30 yrs of my life running around in circles to get nowhere. You have no idea the magnitude of all the info/research you provided in addition to being able to view my paternal biological mother's resting place has had on me... It is all I have/means SO MUCH & it's ALL BECAUSE OF YOU being such a LIVING EXAMPLE that there is such Genuine GOODNESS & GREATNESS still left in this world!! You have given me a chance that I wouldn't have had without you & if I get to actually meet/speak with any remaining relations &/or finally get some answers after all this time... well, I'm already indebted to you forever in a way I can never hope to repay. Thank YOU Dawn Stewart for the AMAZING Gift YOU ARE & Blessing a complete stranger's LIFE in such a Tremendously Significant way... These words are not enough but they are all I have, coming from the depths of my heart, soul & being. I appreciate your kind message on my mother's memorial & love the adorably precious pic of you & what must be your daughter. Your radiance illuminates your being Both inside & out... Thank YOU Dawn for being so STELLAR & touching a strangers life in such a profound way!!! With Endless Appreciation for ALL you do: ((( Hugs, Smiles & Everything Worthwhile to You & Yours in much Peace, Love & Light ))) Morning, Noon & Night, Cricket Bose Morrow ;-)

RE: Hampton National Cemetery
Yes, Joe and I are still working on the Phoebus side of the Hampton National Cemetery. Ron finished the Hampton side and moved on. I have about 300 more pictures to input in Section H and my part will be done, but I plan to go back through the memorials I previously created and make sure each has a photo and there are no duplicates.

Hi Dawn, I just wanted to tell you how very much I appreciate the transfer of Kathy Block's memorial to me ~ and so quickly after my request! Her career in nursing was such a young one before her early death, Lord only knows what she was destined to do in the history of healthcare. It will be well cared for. Warmly, Helen
