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.....
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. :)

|Stanley Baker||Bray Memorials|
I just want to thank you for all your Find A Grave memorials for the Bray's. You supported much of your information with Will's and family history. My ancestors were also Bray's in North Carolina. Your research has answered lots of my genealogy questions and got me over some brick walls.
|Alma Smith||George D Andrews #25573161|
I noted that you have a photo request for this gentleman. I did a survey of that cemetery several years ago and he did not have an identifiable marker there.
The Knightdale Cemetery is the original Knightdale Baptist Church Cemetery. There is a newer cemetery for the Church but too new for Mr. Andrews to be buried there. Jennifer Mishoe surveyed that cemetery in 2013.
I note the death certificate says burial in Raleigh and that is about 10 to 12 miles away but could have had a Raleigh mailing address in 1914.
There were some "Andrews" that were buried off Hodge Road near Knightdale and I have heard they were moved to another cemetery due to development but I do not know which cemetery or if he was related.
Sorry I cannot be of more help but thought I would pass along what I know.
Thanks for your contributions.

|Jocelyn Barrett||Nancy Jones Bray #68432211|
Hi, I descend down Henry Bray through 2 of his daughters. One md. Michael Welch and the other md. John Lambert. (Unless I've really messed up!) My interest actually lies in Nancy Jones Bray's dau. Patsy who md. Daniel Brown. I have a Margaret S. Bray who md. Daniel Brown although I think this might be a younger Daniel Brown than the one you have md. to Patsy. This particular Daniel Brown was a s/o Nathan Brown. It seems maybe Nathan might have lived in IN at one time and maybe went back there after living in NC for a while; however, it might have been Daniel who went back. Right now I only have an "adopted" daughter born in 1887 Fannie Olive Brown who md. Doumas Bailey Hicks whose father was a half-brother to my 2nd great-grandmother Sarah Welch Hicks. Hope I haven't left out a generation here. I'd enjoy hearing from you when you have time. Jocelyn Brabham Barrett firstname.lastname@example.org

Re: Where is Emma Lee Baughn buried?
I wanted to let you know that I'm not ignoring you. I sent a message to the person that posted the grave marker on Ancestry.com, but have not received a response.
|Rich Kreiss||RE: Bob Beal|
I'm not saying you should delete yours. I'm guessing the other creator won't delete theirs so a merge would be preferable. I could be wrong but I believe a merge would leave your memorial and add the info from the other one to it while leaving the name of the other creator off of it. I'm not sure how it works, though.
|Jimmy Lawson||RE: Anstiss Mills|
The birth date (1789) is wrong for Anstiss Mills that married John Oakley for her to be the grandmother.
I think my Anstiss Mills Murphy (born 1808) is a niece of Anstiss Mills Oakley. It is confusing. I also have a few William Murphy"s to sort through. They are from the Patrick & Henry County's. Anstiss Mill Murphy was married to Jesse Murphy, Jr., who died abt. 1843 when his will was probated in Patrick Co., Virginia.
