Mildred Frances Massie #86713361 Hi - I just saw your memorial for Mildred Frances Massie at Amherst Cemetery and see you show she was born in Amherst County but she was born in Nelson County per their birth register.
Her parents were Peter J. Coffey and his first wife, Elvira Ruth Wood.
In case you want to add the marriage date to Jefferson Kenneth Massie it was 26 Jul 1896 in Nelson Co., VA.
Thank you for your time and effort. Shirley Houk Find-a-Grave Member
RE: Cabell William Price Read Cabell he is buried in Lynchburg right. The reason I ask the book I have says he is buried in Austin Texas in Texas State Cemetery. There could be some connection there mother or grandmother maiden name.
RE: Cabell I took your picture and used it. You can click on the picture so it will go to that picture only. Right click on it, it should say "save picture as" or "save this picture as". Name the picture and it will save it for you. Another way to take good picture close together is to back up and take them both at the same time. Then you can crop them. I have paint on my computer it's an HP. works really well. Thank you so much again glad I could help out and I will be useing the other picture to and will credit you for the pictures.
RE: Cabell Don't clean them with any soaps they have chemicals in them that will mess the poors up in the stone. Take a brush not a wire brush or any metals it will scrach the stone. A slightly hard bristle brush. A soft paint brush and some white flour. After getting the dirt off with the bristle brush take the paint brush and remove the loose dirt. Take the flour and put it on the stone. Take your hand or a wide plastic putty knife even cardboard and slightly move it across the stone, trying not to take the flour out of the letters. It takes practice but it will work or you can try it the best way you know how. This is how I do it. With hard to read standing stones or flat stones. Flat stones are easy standing stones you have to use your hands. After you finish just brush the flour around so it wont look bad around the stone. Rain will take care of the rest of it. The weather will put a damper on things. Thank you so much for helping.
Cabell Ok now I know what's going on. The spelling in the book I have is wrong, it is Cabell. Lewis is in the book said he is buried in Lynchburg, Va. William is in Austin, and they are brothers. Now I do need the pictures of both headstones so I can show the author who wrote the book the mistake. He lives in Virginia not far away.
