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.
Swanson Cemetery Jack, Can you please provide me directions to the Swanson Cemetery in Callands? I can fulfill your request. I am headed to Pittsylvania Co., for the month of April, and would like to visit this and a few other Reynolds Cemeteries. Thanks for your assistance, s.stice
RE: Soyars cemetary Thanks so much Jack! I will contact Mr. Eanes; my dad knew where one of the cemeteries is located, but is not sure about the other. I am hoping we can find it the next time I am home.
My dad is Hugh Jackson Soyars and his grandfather was James Hugh Ragsdale. My grandfather was Desmond Soyars and I can remember when he also grew tobacco. Our paths may have rossed at some point. I grew up near Callahan's Hill and Bachelor's Hall. I attended Brosville Elementary and graduated from Tunstall.
Soyars cemetary Hello, I am the great granddaughter of James Hugh Ragsdale and Emma Shumate Ragsdale from Pittsylvania County, VA. Could you please give me an address or directions to what you call the Soyar cemetery? I have been to one Soyars cemetery off of the Horseshoe Rd, but these graves are not located there. Thank you!
John Reynolds Family Cemetery Jack, Can you provide directions to John Reynolds Family Cemetery in Rondo, Pittsylvania VA, gps coordinates, or contact info for the person who took the photos? Thanks, s.stice
Mary Eliza Napier Rey Stewart Thought you might like a bit more info for this find a grave. By second husband William Henry Stewart two children were born, William G. (Middle name changed to John at confirmation) and Gertrude Stewart born in late 1875 and died less than three months later at home with her parents. Cause of death according to what her mother suggested was whooping cough, but death certificate says paralysis of the mouth. There is more than one Catholic Cemetery in London so the exact location is unclear. Willian H. Stewart died in 1907 in London. William John was still alive in 1911 living with his half sister Jessie.
Nancy W G Dickerson Martin Thank you for helping to clarify the Dickerson/Dickinson Family. I noted the memorial for Lucy (Brown) Dickinson was deleted. Since she couldn't have been married at 4 years of age, I thought changing her birth to about 1798 would solve that problem. The 1798 birth date was probably estimated from the marriage year.
Keene Reynolds I was putting a grave picture on for his son, Bruce and noticed that you have a death certificate on for Keene. I was wondering if you might change the photo order. The couple picture is fantastic and deserves the top spot. I hope you do not mind me saying so.
SHRADER, COLBY Hello, I just wanted to let you know that the information I found today in my research revealed that the Colby Shrader that Ms. VirJean had was incorrect.. parents to this Colby Shrader were John Shrader and Martha Hardin Shrader.. I made the corrections, and hopefully yours would still be correct with different B day and D death.. I see you have no cemetery listed .. maybe this information can be found.. I will keep researching and try to get more information.. Just wanted to let you know, that your Colby with dates given do match up with Christopher Columbus Shrader as father.. Thank you.. He is my great x4 grandfather.. Julie
SHRADER, COLBY Hello, I was checking out Colby Shrader's memorial as just had someone concerned about information.. Please see memorial ## 70063837 COLBY SHRADER that was created in 2011, see below..

Thank you kindly, Julie Eskridge Taylor #47008461
