This verse came from the grave marker of a relative who died in 1900 in Warrenton, MO.

"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" - Matthew 5:8

My FAG activities are primarily with the Mitchell, Waller, Wells, Cox and Wilson families and their relatives.

Here is a poem from the Remembrance Card of David Waller Mitchell, my great grandfather who died on October 12, 1909.

He served as a Private in the Confederate Army from Pittsylvania County, VA and survived Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg in PA.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven.

Samuel "Britton" Blair 1789-1870
Researching my GG grandfather Samuel Blair ,he had no middle name, everyone assumes it was Britton because of his son Samuel Britton Blair JR. 1838-1911, Sam Jr. got his middle name from his Mother's father Britton Fuller, Clarissa was Sam Sr. second wife, and Sam JR was Clarissa's first born son,Samuel Blair SR. gave him his name, and Clarissa gave him "Britton" in honor of her father. I have found not one document,even his headstone that Samuel Blair Sr. had a middle name. Middle names were rarely given until the 1800's.In a nut shell there's Samuel Blair (Father) and Samuel Britton Blair (son)....respectfully, Sam Blair. Oh and Samuel Blair 1789-1870 father is William Blair 1750-1790, mother Sarah Sutor/ Sutter 1760- 1807
I'm SAR thru my GGG William Blair :)

Charlotte Robertson Napier
Hello Jack --
I was looking through photo requests for the Nashville City Cemetery and noticed Charlotte. I do not have her tombstone photo but am connected to this family. I hope to visit the City Cemetery in the near future with a list of many to find.

Mary Polly Wilson Gilley
# 133848667 Mr. Mitchell, could you please recheck her death date and take a photo of her tombstone please. I find her alive and well in the 1860 census. Some of the children you have listed are born after the death date you provide. Obviously, this would not be possible if she died in July of 1816. Thank you so much. My email is koolgen@comcast.net today is Sept. 23, 2016.

Berryman Arnn - 2d wife
Hey Jack -- if it is of interest -

Berryman Arnn
Record added: Apr 25, 2013
Find A Grave Memorial# 109203183

2d wife of Berryman Arnn [Mary Hamm Smith] was the widow of Joseph Daniel Smith] Joseph and Berryman's 1st wife Joanna Amanda Blair Arnn died within a few months of each other in 1863/1864. Mary and Berryman were married by late 1864.

Berryman and Joanna were my 3d great grandparents [Berryman>John Franklin>Nathaniel] and Joseph Daniel and Mary were my 2d great grandparents [Joseph>Philip Jason>Willie Viola Smith Arnn.

This note may be of no interest to any but descendants of the couples. Berryman and Mary ha 4 more children which further compounds the relationships!

Thanks for all your hard work in keeping our families and countless others in order!

Obediah Waller (1785-1852)
You list Obediah as dying in Virginia. He was certainly born in VA, likely Pittsylvania County. He and his brother, Joel, then moved to Rockingham County, NC (across the border), then to Nashville, TN area. Obe served as Captain in War of 1812 in W TN Militia. In 1818, he is found in Franklin/Lawrence County, AL where he was JoP from about 1818 to 1829. Last record of him that I have found in AL is 1829 so far which is about the time his FinL, Joseph Scales died. From 1830-1849, I lose him. Then he is pops up in the 1850 census of Bradley County, Arkansas living with his son - Joseph Scales Waller. His exact death date seems to be known, but I'm not sure of the source. Also, many people on Ancestry are copying your information about his death place being VA, when the last location he was found was Arkansas. Did he come back to VA before dying? If not, his likely death place is Bradley Co, Arkansas or Fannin Co, Texas where Joseph moved...but I have yet to find exactly where he died. Whoever sourced his exact death date must know where he died, but not sure who originated that date.

Mary House Gilmer
My husband and I have been to the cemetery at Grove Hill in Fincastle several times and there is no marker there with this person's name. We are trying to determine who is buried there and are curious how you determined that Mary House Gilmer is buried there. Linda Breckinridge

Re: Abihu Arnn Mem #109077642
Hello Jack -- if it is of interest, Abihu Aaron/Arnn was the grandson of the family patriarch Abraham Aaron, Sr and unnamed wife. Abraham was born in Lancaster County PA about 1732/33. He and family moved to Pittsylvania County, VA where he was first enumerated in 1767. Abihu's father George Washington Aaron, Sr as well as my ancestor Isaac Aaron, Sr both changed the spelling of their surname to ARNN from Aaron for whatever reason. Many of George's descendants did not adopt the spelling and retained the original Aaron spelling. Some later descendants can be found with the surname Aarons, Aron, Arons. I am unaware of any of the descendants of Isaac Aaron/Arnn, Sr who did not retain the Arnn spelling.

Abihu and his 1st cousin [son of Isaac] Berryman Arnn, Sr [b 1810]married sisters. As you have provided -- Margaret Reynolds Blair was Abihu's wife. Berryman married Joanna Amanda Blair; they were my ggrandparents. Abihu and Berryman and families traveled to AR after several years in the Obion/Henry counties area of TN.

Nick Karalis
Dear Jack,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division.

According to the History of the 89th Division, Private Karalis was wounded (degree undetermined) on the last day of WWI (11/11/1918).

I am trying to find the graves of as many members of the above mentioned army unit as I can. I am hoping you might know whether Nick Karalis was a member of this unit. If he was a WWI veteran, he would be eligible for a gravestone. I see he is missing one.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With warm regards,


Bryan Anderson
