Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm researching the Rev David Rice line in VA, KY and TN; and the Philip Walker line in MA-RI-CT-NY-WI. If you have, or need, information about these families, please contact me.

I'm a cantor, organist and conductor, and I enjoy photographing old gravestones.

Find-a-Grave offers an opportunity to share information on an unprecedented scale. Much like Google's project to digitize every book ever published, this site aspires to document the lives of everyone who has gone before us! How cool would THAT be?

William Walton, Sr.
Memorial # 39969724 Sent a brief bio. re: his patriotic service during the American Revolution. There are tentative plans to conduct a memorial service and a grave marking at his graveside by the local Roanoke area Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR)and Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). We are in a very early planning stage and submitting the request for the Virginia State SAR Society's approval to conduct the grave marking has not been implemented to date.

Jennie Leyburn Cocke
Hi, just wanted to let you know I set up memorial for Jennie Cocke, wife of Alonzo Rice Cocke. I saw you were maintaining his memorial if you would like me to transfer hers to you I will be glad to.
I have been putting grave locations on Find A Grave for Riverview Cemetery here in Waynesboro VA and the
old records I am using shows "Burial" unknown
for a tremendous amount of gravesites. Some I have been able to identify some not. Jennies was
one I did locate. The cemetery records werent kept the best back then. The inscription is on the side of the monument and is very faint, I
really had trouble reading it and until I uploaded it and then it made perfect sense.
Hope this is of help.
Regards - Beth Brady
