My son & I have combined his love of U.S. military history and my love of genealogy & art into a fun and educational pursuit.
Our enthusiasm began after a springtime trip to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virgina. We were overwhelmed ... the riot of color from the dogwoods mixed with the somber grays of the stones stole my breath away, while the famous names of JEB Stuart & George Pickett had my young man whooping (albeit quietly) & tossing his cap in the air. The die was cast and since then we have traveled many miles and poured through many books & documents together. We travel yearly into Pennsylvania exploring our family roots. You may find us in the Marx Room of the Easton Library, or haunting the cemeteries of Montour & Columbia counties ...
We are currently working through our home county of Gloucester and the adjoining Mathews county photographing & transcribing the cemeteries.
If you should find an error or would like me to transfer a loved one to your care, please pop us a note.
Grave of Jeffrey Flowers Hello, I'm interested in your source of information about the grave of Jeffrey Flowers died 1726 and buried at Abingdon Episcopal Church in Gloucester County, Virginia. Ancestry.com hints that this person is my ancestor and has a link to your memorial to him but I cannot find any reference to him in any of the books about the churches burials. I've been told by the church secretary that the original burial records were destroyed in the Rosewell Plantation fire and the tombstone itself is so weathered it cannot be read. I would greatly appreciate your help with this matter. Thank you, John Ruehrmund
Birth date change Hello, I'm a grandson of George W Gunn (Find A Grave Memorial# 21013365). I have found 3 records(1 census, 1 WWI draft card, and 1 WWII draft card) indicating that he was born April 28, 1881. Would you be so kind to update his memorial? If you need I can furnish the links to the census and draft records. Brian Goolsby
Thank you kindly for transferring management of Angelo and Rosa's memorials to me. I promise to take good care of them. May I ask if you would also consider transferring management of their daughter France's Goretti - 31601786 - to me?
Thank you also for the terrific work you do on Find A Grave. This is a wonderful website which unites families and preserves history for all.
RE: Looking just splendid! I apologize if I overwhelmed you with my requests. You certainly did a lot of work creating the memorials, and I would never ask someone to transfer so many memorials, but I can understand your situation. I do appreciate your thoughtfulness in transferring the memorials to me. I joined Ancestry.com so I will be able to find more information to add to the memorials. Thanks for all your hard work on Find A Grave, and thanks once again for the transfers. Gary
