|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.

Can you tell me where you found Walker Fitts died in Monroe, Walton County, Georgia?
Walker was my 2x great grandfather, his son Marion J was my g-grandfather and Newton Franklin Fitts was my grandfather. All the records I have on Walker's death shows Fayette County, Georgia.

I have researched and linked the children of George Prentice Herndon, the brother of my great grandfather, William W Herndon. Our farm adjoins the George Prentice Herndon estate and I knew his daughter, Inez Christine Herndon who was our neighbor.
I also have ancestors buried at the Jones Mitchell Richardson cemetery at Dry Fork. My great great grandfather was Henry Mitchell, his daughter, Nannie Alice Richardson Johnson was my great grandmother.

He is my great-grandfather! I am also the one who secured Harriet and worked with her to get the marker photos.
So, I prefer not to make a transfer.

Dear Mr. Mitchell
I wanted to let you know the photo you requested for Ophel Yates cannot be fulfilled because Mr. Yates was cremated. He was a personal friend of mine and I attended his memorial. I remain friends with his son Tom and his wife Ms. Mary and know Mr. Yates is not buried at the Old White House Meeting Street Cemetery.

I do not know of place of burial of Susan Parrish Mays. I would really like to know however. I have thought if I could find her (died 1928) that then I could find more about her husband, my great grandfather Thomas Terry Mays. He died c. 1882 (wounded twice in Civil War -- once at Gettysburg and once at Winchester VA) Susan Parrish Mays' death certificate shows she was in Dry Fork VA when she died and the informant on her death certificate is listed as John Mays, which is the son I believe she was living with at her death. I will have to look up all her children. Do you have another email I can write to? Pam

Dear Mr. Mitchell
Thank you for updating the memorial for Wilson Parrish. If I ever find where Wilson Parrish was buried, I definitely will let you know. I have spent a lot of time researching him and cannot find his burial place yet.
Regarding Abraham P. Parrish -- I believe this to be the son of Wilson Parrish and Matilda C. Wells. Abraham P. Parrish (1835-1861) therefore would be grandson of the Abraham Parrish (Parish) that is in your memorial. It is very easy to get these Abraham Parrish men mixed up. Abraham P. Parrish is said to have died at the Battle of Monterey in 1861 in the Civil War. His sister, my great grandmother Susan Parrish Mays, named one of her sons Abraham after her brother Abraham who died in the Civil War -- and also named another son John after her brother John Wilson Parrish who was wounded at Malvern Hill in the the Civil War.
I hope that adds some help on the Abraham P. Wilson name.

You have that Wilson Parrish was born in Patrick Co. VA in the memorial date -- but that he was born in Pittsylvania Co. VA in the writeup you copied from a text about him. WHICH IS IT? You also have him on FindAGrave when no one anywhere knows of his cemetery location to date. I have researched him a great deal as he is my 2nd great grandfather. You also have his father listed as Abraham Perkins Parrish - who is my 3rd great grandfather. His middle name is not Perkins. That would have been the middle name of someone else in the family -- and not this Abraham Parrish. You have copied something from an ancestry.com family tree that is not proven. I have documentation for marriage bond and for his Will and the middle name Perkins or even the initial P is not anywhere on these documents. It is also not on any of the census I have for him. You are putting incorrect information on this website. Please correct it and please tell us the cemetery you have for his burial. You also need to correct the conflicting county of birth for Wilson Parrish. Is it Pittsylvania or is it Patrick? You have a lot of items you have contributed but it is important that they be accurate as well. Pam Spivey
