|Bio and Links|
Sinner Saved by the Grace of God. Calvinist by the Five Points. West Virginian by birth. Virginian by family history, choice, and the Grace of God. Physician Assistant/retired Navy MSC Officer, now working for the Army at Ft. Lee, VA.|
Thirty second degree Mason.
When writing or rewriting the bio of an especially noted person my goal is to create something a high schooler can use as the starting point for a term paper. Always ready to discuss Mr. Jefferson, I posted the bios of him, of his dear Patty and Patsy, and three of his biographers. Proud Southerner and member of the SCV (AP Hill Camp #167, Petersburg, VA). Actor/American Revolution (Patrick Henry's speech at St. John's Church, though I don't play Mr. Henry) interpreter. Member of the American Legion; Life Member of the NRA.
Professional memberships include the John Bell Hood Historical Society, the Edgar Allan Poe Foundation, the Army Society of Physician Assistants, and the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA)
My roots are in Southwestern Virginia, and southern West Virginia...family names would be Hufford (and the alternative spelling Huffard), Caldwell, Taylor, Ross, Bowman, and Farley, though I confess that my knowledge is limited.
Errors of fact, grammar, or spelling are 100% MINE. Please notify me when you catch them. Famous memorials are NOT 'first come first served' and people named "anonymous" will be ignored...unfortunately past events force me into a policy of deleting any unsolicited page sent to me.
My thanks to all who visit my dear Leila and our good friend Mo. God Bless you for your kindness!

|gravely interested||Anna Groh Hoffman|
I am family to this lady. I descend from Johannes Groh. I never realized how deep my Great Grandmothers family roots were in America until I started researching my family. Her name was Bertha Groh Cole. Her Father, Jacob was the son of Solomon Groh. The family started in PA, moved to Canada, returned to the United States in 1881 in Michigan. My Grandmas family was Mennonite. She married my Great Grandpa Harry Cole in 1910 and he became a minister with the Wesleyan Methodist Church. They were married from 1910 to 1984 when she was called home to her Lord. Grandpa passed in 1989, missing his Berthe as he called her.
Thank you for the history you included.
|Kitty||RE: Adelina Patti Thankyou|
Well,I came to research her because my daughter is a singer,and I thought maybe there was a Youtube video of her singing so I put "Adele's voice" (because that is what I named her-my daughter) into the Youtube search box,and the videos that came up were so astonishing that I created a whole photo album in my Facebook comparing every angle,showing accesories,everyday pictures,performance pictures and basically matched so many side by sides that because I could move them around and compare facial expressions,etc.Pretty exact.Eye Opening,in fact.My daughter has always been bitchy,greedy,controlling,a tad loose,and innovative as prodigies are.So I began doing research and compared ALL those QUalities.I looked into blood relations and Patti was not listed as a relative.It became a hobby to compare experiences of the two people,and anything else I could find.So if you have Facebook,maybe I could friend you and you could see it. My daughter is 25 now.I havent done the math yet.But its some of the best fun I have ever had.!

I came across this gentleman and thought you would be interested in doing a rewrite. His memorial is 102770727.

No worries. I came across a lot of "beauties" and "talented ladies" while doing research and just put a list together. I know you do great work on sopranos, opera singers, etc. and knew this was right up your alley and just wanted to share the virtual cemetery with you. I am still working on a couple of the burial locations as they are unknown.

You are so informative. Thank-you.
G-G Grandmother was Eliza Hufford, Washington,Pa.
I do not believe she was an Elizabeth,I do not know why she wasn't one. Thank-you for your thought gesture of looking her up.
Have you checked www.deadfreds.com, for Hufford, surnames?
I saw a couple Hufford, photos,on Deadfred.com.
Hufford's, on the link below, may be from the larger Hufford family.

|AMB||found some of your HUFFORDs|
Bob, I bumped into some more of your HUFFORD, originally from Pulaski Co., Virginia; died in Tennessee. Here's the link to one:
There are some others in that same cemetery.
Hope all's well!

Thanks for the message.
I love T. Jefferson. Although there is some thing special to me about Benjamin Harrison and Edward Rutledge.
All of my hero's seem to be from the South.
I am visiting Virginia at the end of May. I am of course going to Monticello, Stratford Hall, Berkeley Plantation and Colonial Williamsburg. I have less than a week, but I figure what I don't see will give me a reason to come back.
I am also going to Charleston. I am staying at the Edward Rutledge Home. In what they say was his room. Of course I am doing Middleton Plantation. I am only going to be there for 4 days and there is a big festival going on. So, if I have time I may check it out, but I am all about the History.
Then, I am off to Philadelphia.
I would love to go to the College of William and Mary and study History. I applied for a position at Monticello, but I know when they see a California address my resume will be round filed.
Oh well, Law Enforcement isn't such a bad gig.
I would have added Judge Roane to my Virtual Cemetery, but it's been so long since I've updated it, I forgot how to. Also, I see that find a grave does grave sponsorship. Do you know what that means?
Anyway, gotta go tomorrow's my birthday and my family wants to do some thing for me. I thought I had it today by going to the Pow Wow and having Fry Bread.
Your Humble and Obediant,
