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. :)

RE: George Penn Dillard III
I'd love to!
I'll nail down the specifics and get back to you...
But I have to say that it might not be until May that it all comes together. I have a boy under 2 and we don't get out that way often.

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 tbarrett3@triad.rr.com

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.

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.

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.

Anstiss Mills
Anstiss Mills seems to be a popular name. I have in my line
Anstiss W.F. Mills (b. ca.1808)married 1832 Patrick Co. Jesse Murphy d/o ???

Anstiss Mills (b ca. 1789)married John Oakley d/o William Mills & Elizabeth Fontaine.

Anstiss Mill {your line (B. ca. 1825)married Nealy Reynolds. d/o Francis Mills & Sally Moore.

My question is who are the parents of Anstiss W.F. Mills b. 1808? I think it's William Mills & Susannah Allen. Any help would be great.

Thanks Jimmy

FYI
Hi,
I have come across an unusual fate of life. My mother is a Matthews and I have been digging in to my father's line. After several lines I found Mathews/Matthews in his family and so far they do not connect. Your find work has helped me with my father's family.

Many thanks for your Find A Grave work.

Best Regards,
