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).

Dear Concerned Find-A-Gave Contributors and visitors,

Regarding: DUPLICATE MEMORIALS in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia

A former large volume F-A-G Contributor had a dispute with Find-A-Grave staff and Deleted some 80% or more, of their contributed memorials, estimated to be about 40,000 or so. Thus causing the rest of us local Contributors, over the last year or more, to re-enter those family, friends and distant relatives we noted were missing.

Once F-A-G had decided to take positive action, they reloaded all the Deleted memorials from that former F-A-G Contributor, on Wednesday, 25feb2015. F-A-G staff, undoubtedly knew they would cause tens of thousands of Duplicates, and assigned their staffer, known as 'ProjectMgr' to work through their Merge process.

Please be patient and allow F-A-G to work through the entire group of Duplicate memorials.

Thank you.
E49 Created above Statement

If anyone gets Find A Grave to transfer memorials cared for by ProjectMgr Just a heads up I dont delete any connected to ProjectMgr.I worked hard to replace all the memorials that had been deleted.Find A Grave choice to re-upload the Old Deleted memorials And we work free on this site.So if anyone wants our memorials Have Find A Grave Merge them or if you dont have a problem merging then more power to you.

I do want to thank anyone that has helped with my duplicants created after the major upload of old memorials formerly deleted.I really appreciate the help.

Not sure how this happened, but Thomas was made the father or his daughter's huband. Thomas D. King Memorial #147057178 was the father of Frances Laura King-Stork, Memorial #25993105 and her husband is Albert Mauritz Stork (1849 - 1928) Memorial # 25993100. Sorry if I may have confused things.

Ore's at Mountain view cemetery, WY
I see that you are working on Orr's. Are you related to the Ore's at Mountain View cemetery, Riverton, Fremont, WY?

I looked at your Orr's and I couldn't see a connection between the two. The Ore's above are originally from Missouri, went to Neb and onto WY.

If you do not have a connection would it be possible to transfer them to me. They are not directly related but are in my family and it would be easier to add info if I didn't have to go through someone.

Thanks for any help.

James Arnold Branch obituary
You posted that you had a copy of James Arnold Branch's obituary. If so, I'd love to see a copy. :)

I never met Mr. Branch; but his wife Juanita later married my half-brother. Together they had three children, the oldest of whom died during infancy from pneumonia in 1975. They would later divorce and she married a third time to Charles Johnson (also of North Carolina); but all three of them have passed away now (Juanita as of two years ago). Her oldest daughter Linda posts an occasional floral tribute, but hasn't been that active on Find A Grave. I am not sure of her contact information.
