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

I was born in Irisburg, Henry County, VA, grew up in Cascade, Pittsylvania County, VA, went off to college and found a job in Germantown, TN (near Memphis) where I have lived since 1976.

My wife and I have been blessed with four children and eight grandchildren.

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

For the past 25 years we have operated a family business that sells internet based Point of Sale (POS) systems to independently owned retail stores. Most of our customers are pet stores and gift shops.

Do you if this is the J R Brown from Snow Creek?

Masonic meetings were held at Snow Creek before the old church and Lodge were erected in 1872. At that time, the nearest chartered Lodge, now extinct, was Vincent Wicher Lodge No. 87, (chartered on December 15, 1852 and inactive in December 1886), located in the community of Callands, Virginia. The Brethren of Snow Creek, desiring to establish their own Lodge, requested a dispensation from the Grand Lodge of Virginia, empowering then to open a Lodge in their community. The recommendation was made that the following officers be appointed:

B. H. Tatum Worshipful Master
D. F. Hodges Senior Warden
J. R. Brown Junior Warden

Elisha Mitchell & Judith Wills
Hi Jack ... My name is Teresa Burnap and Elisha Mitchell is my 3rd g-grandfather.

He & Judith had 2 additional children that you do not have listed here -- Emeline B. Mitchell Maddy Foard (1814-1886) and Joel L. Mitchell (1825-abt. 1895). I am related thru Joel Mitchell.

Have you ever heard of Joel, and might you have any other information? His 2nd is my 2nd great grandmother - Sarah Elizabeth Powers. They married and lived in Rockingham County, NC.

Caroline Wilson Kelly
Hi Jack, there is a mistake in the bio for Caroline Wilson Kelly buried in George Wilson cemetery, Grayson Co. Ky. The bio states that she married William S. Wilson on Feb. 8, 1827 and should say that she married William S. Kelly on that date. She is a sister to my great great great grandfather. Thanks.

William and Thomas Waller
This is regarding the memorials for William and Thomas, born 1671 and 1675. They are the brothers of Col. John Wallet who was born In England in 1773. The memorial states William and John were born in Virginia, however, I believe this should be England also. Their parents never migrated to the Americas, so there would be no way for any of their children to be born in Virginia. I just wanted to bring this to your attention. Thank you for all your help for FindAGrave.

Hi Jack, obit added, doing well with the exception of the knees giving me fits at times, like today. Working full time and also right now working on Highland, Danville. Ed has did a few of the real hilly sections there & Frank is also doing a few from the cemetery on line records. Another person is also doing a few from the online records also. I am pretty much just staying on the pretty level sections of Highland for now, as the hilly ones are just too tough on the knees. Take care, Larry
