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 DO NOT COPY elsewhere on Find A Grave, Billion Graves, other sites listing graves, the internet or for commercial use. My photos all have a copyright. 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.

Thank you very much for taking the gravestone photographs of my Great (3) Aunt and Uncle. Please be advised I do plan to publish your photographs in my upcoming 2017 book. Respectfully, Walter D. Golladay

P.S. All the Golladays and related family members in Mount Herman Cemetery are my direct ancestors back to Jonathan Golladay and his 2 wives Mary (Wherely) and Martha (Bell) Golladay, from nearby Walker Creek. Again, thank you.

Thanks so much for looking for my family members. Yes, I believe the William Campbell you found must be my ancestry. Also, his wife was Ethel. Thanks!

You're a doll! Thanks for getting a good shot of his cenotaph. It looks like the W&L or ? Student helpers used the cleaning spray but didn't go back for the required repeat sprayings. It's a real shame. Can you estimate if the date at the bottom is "9" Mar 1898? Son James died the 31st. Many thanks,
