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.

Napiers and allied families
Those researching the Pittsylvania County Virginia families of Napier, Ford and Reynolds BEWARE of what Jack Mitchell has posted...he took the work of a dedicated Find A Grave researcher and took over his memorials only to add erroneous info and impossible dates. There is good and careful research elsewhere online for these families.

Even though Demaras Reynolds Napier and family are my direct ancestors, Find A Grave refuses to allow me to take the memorials from Jack Mitchell because they are 4th generation to me, they say they only honor 3rd gen and down. Jack Mitchell admits that he is not related to them. So...just know what you are dealing with on these families that are so precious to me.

RE: John Wilson Odle
I see, it appears to be private research with no cited documentation. I have to question it because Odle (Odell) children were born to Sintha well after the death date they assign to John W. and the authors of the website "claim" it was from an affair with another Odle (Odell)who was coincidentally also named John. I have absolutely NO confidence in the information especially since they do not seem to know where he died or where he was buried and yet claim to know an exact date of death. Please be so kind as to add a disclaimer to the bio. We don't want other descendents to believe it is confirmed or verified information.

The internet can be a great source of information and an even greater source of misinformation.

Please let me know what your proof of death date and cause of death are (you list it as a gunshot wound on the memorial you created?). I am a direct descendant and do not want to link my memorials to yours if you don't have some kind of evidence to the claim. Genealogy is an art AND a science. It requires proof. Please tell me you have some.

You are a bully!!
But worse than are spreading half truths and guesswork about our beloved ancestors...and just copying trees right and left...besides myself I know of two others who you've's time to stop. Many of these are not even related to disrespectul...we will keep reporting you to Find A Grave and hopefully you can control your need to be mean.

Arthur Fuller burial place
Dear Jack
I see you have Arthur Fuller noted as buried at Lawrence Cemetery in Callands Community of Pittsylvania County VA.

I was wondering what the background was for finding that cemetery information. I have researched Arthur Fuller a great deal because he is my 5th Great grandfather and I proved into DAR thru him as Patriot.

If you know for sure this is the correct cemetery for his burial, I would like to see about getting his grave marked as a DAR Patriot. DAR has a special process they do to mark a Revolutionary War Patriot's grave. Please let me know the providence of this information on his burial site and location of this cemetery.
I appreciate it very much

Sorry Jack but C Wayne is at 3-39 and Susan is right beside him so that would be the grave location for her also.

I was by her grave today and it still is not marked. I cannot tell you the exact Lot # for her grave but she is in Old Section C (#3 Section) on the left side. After this summer I will not be back over there walking rows so if you want to make a note of this maybe someone else can find her easier at a later date.
