Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other antebellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

RE: DeShields
Her son, who is a relative of mine, says she is there & he lives in the area so I will show her as buried there. Thanks so much for your help.

I note Lena Mae Fogg DeShields #14930535 and her husband Henry Carrington DeShields are buried in this church cemetery. I have been told their daughter Sara Wheelwright DeShields 12/18/1910-5/1/1979 is also buried there. Would it be possible for you to check this for me? I would appreciate it so much.
