Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Army Officer, Civil War enthusiast, and amateur genealogist with an excellent camera. I am also an old geezer who needs the exercise I get walking the 100+ cemeteries of Rockbridge County, Virginia (most of them are hilly).

If anyone is not satisfied with any photo of a grave marker that I have taken, please let me know via email and I will be glad to either remove it or retake the image. Likewise, if I create a memorial that is offensive or incorrect in any way, let me know and I will either correct the information or remove the memorial.

I try hard to take a photograph where the information on the marker is readable in the image. I DO NOT CLEAN STONES, but upon request, I will return when there is a different light situation to see if I can capture a better image.

Family members have my permission to privately use my photos of the grave markers of your ancestors for genealogical purposes on sites such as or, but not for posting elsewhere on Find A Grave, the internet or for commercial use. Please email me if you use one of my photos so I know they are being appreciated elsewhere.

I will be glad to transfer any memorial I have created if it is for one of your ancestors within 4 generations and not in my direct line. Once I transfer a memorial, you may alter it, but it shall NOT be deleted.

RE: Jackson-Argenbright
At first I thought it was but I'm not sure if it is her. The information I found on her on Ancestry says she died at Western State Hospital in 1950. I'll do some more research to find out if it is her.

RE: Gillespie
The cemetery register has the spelling Gillaspie which is probably where the person who set up the memorial took it from. Request corrections, if you like (or perhaps you already have). You are very welcome for the pictures.

Hi! THANK YOU for the photo for Adam. Did you by any chance see his a gravestone or plaque for his spouse: Estelle Cash Sweet (1886 )?

Permission to use Robert McChesney's gravestone photo
Hello, I am a relative of Robert McChesney, and I would like to post the photo you have taken of Robert McChesney's gravestone on for my family tree. I'm writing for permission to do so. Hope to hear from you soon, and God bless.

Campbells in Eagle Rock BC Cem
Hi! We had another family death last week, and went to the funeral. Took photos of most of the people in the large section. Will finish up 3rd week in June when we pass through on the way to Stafford Co. VA. to see children.

Anyhow, thanks for trying to get the Campbell photos we had put in a Request for. We found out that the family is beginning now to get memorial stones installed. Probably within next year, they will be there.

Clarence Lind Hemphill
Carl, my profound thanks for going back to Ebenezer A.R.P. and taking the photograph of young Clarence Lind Hemphill's tombstone. So often, an infant's grave is lost as generations past, but never forgotten. Your time and effort is much appreciated. ~ George Gaston
