Bio Photo So Many Ancestors....So Little Time..
I was born in N.C. a long time ago and have lived in VA. for quite some time.
I enjoy researching civil war soldiers and their families and live in the Heart of the Confederacy.
I enjoy painting with acrylics, especially Old Homeplaces..Beach Scenes..Old Depots, any OLD buildings and such!
I have been Following the Periwinkle in Henry County, VA. and surrounding areas for over 25 years and have enjoyed every minute. :O)
There are many soldiers in my virtual Confederate Cemetery here on Findagrave.
If I can help you with anything, please feel free to ask me.
If you want me to transfer a memorial Please Include Your Findagrave # and go to Edit and ask me there.
I want to thank all the people that have helped me with my research over the years.
Two are Laura Rust and Eugene Landreth who helped my Mom and I when we first started our quest in the 1980s.
The "stories" are what make our ancestors on findagrave come alive once more.

To Forget Ones Ancestors Is To Be A Brook Without A Source, A Tree Without A Root.....

Dear Ancestor,
YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST
NEGLECTED AND ALONE
THE NAME AND DATE HAVE WORN OFF
THE WEATHERED MARBLE STONE
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE.
IT'S NOW TOO LATE TO MOURN
YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT I'D EXIST
YOU DIED....AND I WAS BORN
YET EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU
IN FLESH, IN BLOOD, IN BONE.
OUR HEARTS CONTRACT AND BEAT A PULSE
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED
SOME HUNDRED YEARS AGO
SPREADS OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO
I WONDER HOW YOU LIVED AND LOVED.
I WONDER IF YOU KNEW
THAT SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS PLACE
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.....

Find A Grave gives us an "Unknown" choice for burials or cremations, etc. and if it's a known fact that these people are dead, and they will most likely never be officially linked to any particular burial place, they also have a right to be remembered and to be linked to their other family members.
I will gladly link those who have an unknown status.
That can easily be changed if they are proved to be in any particular place.
They were somebody too, and deserve to be remembered.
If you send me a request and I do not address it within a few days, please re-send!
If you re-send and still get no response, go ahead and list my memorial on here, because I'm probably dead. :)

Please help me figure out how to delete the old funeral memorial card. The new one you added looks great! I'd love to get a copy of that one.
Once I delete the old funeral memorial card ...I can then add the death certificate.
Thank you, "Pat" Cosner, WV

Hi Dee,

I have a copy of Thelma's death certificate and tried to download it for you on here but there are too many photos attached to her so it won't let me download. If you still a copy let me know and we'll figure something out-email or whatever. Thanks and have a good day.

I do not add obits to memorials, it is against Find a Grave's policy.

RE: william hodges 61332584
Hi Dee, this is not my set of Hodges, but reading over the notes that Bob Hodges wrote, I would take him for his word, that he is not the son of Jacob Hodges because that is Bob's family tree. I would check out the cemetery that Bob said he might would be.

I was looking at the Mullins Family cemetery which you have listed as being located in Mayo(Henry County,Va) near the Bolijack home place. My grandfather owns this property and has for many years now. We have located several legible tombstones in the woods just behind where the Bolijack house stood. We've found 3 dated early to mid 1800's. If you're ever in the area and would like to check these out or look for more let me know.

King Cemetery, Leatherwood, Henry County, VA
deegraver,
I'm a descendant of the Kings of Henry County. I'm curious about the burials you have logged into the "King Cemetery" and if your information is from records alone or if you have physically been able to see the cemetery. I notice some photo requests have gone unfulfilled so thought maybe the cemetery itself has disappeared from sight. That's not hard to do as I found out in Kentucky while searching for my great grandfather's cemetery. I did manage to find it but as is the case with many old family cemeteries, his burial place is hidden in the midst of dense foliage and in the middle of a cornfield! I visited Henry County five years ago and spent a day at the Bassett Historical Center to research what I could but never was able to identify where my ancestors land was located, not to mention where they might be buried. You look like you're pretty busy researching and posting but if could advise what you know about the location of the King Cemetery, I'd really appreciate it.

RE: William Ira Kennon
Yes, I was able to see "Wm. Ira Kennon" and the "1823" and part of the 1900. That was all. But it was hard and the only reason I found it in the first place was it was in a row of three other Kennons!
