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 at 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.

Correction for Elizabeth Culbertson VanLeer
Please remove all the Robertson names from Elizabeth's memorial. She was a Culbertson, not related to the Robertson family.

While reviewing a different memorial on Find A Grave for the same person, but with burial site unknown, I checked for others and found your memorial for the same. His full name is Jack Bradley Mitchell. The other memorial was created by River Rat (inactive). I've asked Find A Grave to either combine River Rats memorial with yours or delete River Rat's because your memorial is correct, just not with the most complete information. I don't know what they'll do. I copied the obituary from the existing River Rat memorial if Find A Grave deletes that one. The only significant difference from your memorial for the same person is that his middle name is Bradley. Regards, James Hankins

RE: Edward Fitzgerald
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it. I have asked the person who created the duplicate to delete it. We'll see what happens!

Susan Ellington Childress Parsons
My name is Fran. I am seeking genealogy on the Parsons. My grandfather, Cager Grant Parsons and family lived on Mt. Cross Rd and Whitmell area all his life. His parents are Richard Parsons and Susan Ellington Childress Parsons. Is there any connection to the Parsons on Mt. Cross Rd. They were well known farmers.

Shirley Mize Blair
Finding person
Hello, My name is Shirley Mize Blair and there are several graves I am looking for and was wondering if you could help me.

William Turner Gauldin born 1752 In King William Va. died 1841 Pittsylvania Co. VA. Fought in the Revolutionary War. Buried in Hearp Family Cemetery
Dry Fork Va. on W.I. Powell Rd. on the property of Ira Emerson. This cemetery is on find-a-grave but does not list him as buried there. I planning on visiting the cemetery soon and was wondering if the grave is marked.

William Blair born in 1750 in Moneymore, county Derry, Ireland. Fought in the Rev. War married to Sarah Sutter. He died in Pittsylvania Co. in 1790 Do you happen to know where he is buried.

Also Mary Virginia Bondurant 2nd wife of James Millard Barbour. Trying to find out where she is buried.

Really? Again?
Why won't you honor this request?
Jack Mitchell, Why do you refuse to transfer my 2nd and 3rd ggrandparents to me? You admitted not being a direct descendant. It is my research that you used to make the memorials (errors and all), and now you have added their spouses as UNKNOWN burials. I find this so disrespectful. Would like to know why you want to hold onto these specifically.
