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.

Hi Jack, another member here notified me that I had a duplicate memorial for these people that you already had memorials up for. Only difference is that you did not have a cemetery listed for them. They are resting in Floral Hills Memory Garden in Danville, Virginia. I posted the photo I took of their marker to your memorials and removed mine as once again, mine were duplicates.

Best regards,

Hi Jack, Thanks for getting back with me. I had Sarah G Waller on my tree. So it does look like we're cousins. *LOL*

RE: Grave Marker Photo
Sorry someone requested a picture and I filled the request. I did not check to see if there was a picture already there.

David Waller Mitchel
Hi Jack, I saw that you're following the Wallers. I am also descended from the Wallers and am wondering which line you are on? I'm on Jonas Memory Waller's line. Just curious.

Swanson Cemetery
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.

Thanks again for you help!

Soyars cemetary
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!

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.
