|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.

|Darrell Landrum||Henry and Elizabeth Adkins|
Hi Jack, I am working on the burial records for Presbyterian Cemetery here in Lynchburg and have a general question I hope you may help answer. I have a memorial set up for Susan Jackson Adkins Nowlin (121024505) born in 1816 and died in 1875. On her marker it lists her parents as Henry and Lucy Adkins. I see the memorials you have for Henry and Elizabeth Adkins in Pittsylvania County which is not terribly far from Lynchburg. Any chance my Susan could be their daughter? And if she is and they are your kin, I will transfer her over to your care.
Thanks for your time,

Please find out as much info as you can about the location of the stone. I was there today 12/23/2016 and it was tough to find stones. There wasn't an office or anyone on the property and for some reason all of the street/lot signs were painted over in black. I will try again another time.
|Sam ||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 :)

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.
|Nada Angalin Reed||Robert Clark Waller|
Based on the year you have listed for Anne Clark Waller and Robert Clark Waller if my be nigh on to impossible she is his mom. She would have been 60 at his birth. Can you let me know what you think? Thanks in advance
|Koolgen||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 email@example.com today is Sept. 23, 2016.

|Judith Arnn-Knight||Berryman Arnn - 2d wife|
Hey Jack -- if it is of interest -
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!
|William Tidwell||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.
|LINDA BRECKINRIDGE||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
