For changes to any memorial I manage, please use the Suggest A Correction "SAC" feature on the memorial under the Edit tab on the top right hand side of each memorial. Messages for changes left here may not be made.

Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos for your personal use, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.

My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 20 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's. Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.

I do not intentionally link to burial unknowns for purposes of creating family trees. Please do not request such links. I will delete them if found.

re Monger
I believe that the last thing that I tried to notify you of and didn't succeed in doing was that there is conclusive evidence that John Monger's wife was Ann Pirkey. You can access the information by going to the LVA (Library of Virginia) site and looking up the chancery suit that proves this. It was filed in Augusta Co. by John Peterfish, whose wife was Susanna Monger Deck's sister. The suit concerned the land that Ann's father, Henry Pirkey, left her in his will and it's filled with incidental information concerning dates of death of John and Ann, John's remarriage- a real gold mine, in short.

Richard and Sarah White
In Richard White's biography in this cemetery, you say that after his death, Sarah remarried. Do you happen to know who she married? I'm having a heck of a time researching Richard and Sarah, so any clue could help. His memorial number is 17150955 Thanks.

RE: Collings
Yes, Dorothy married Earl Markle and Phama "Fay" married Earl's brother George. Both Dorothy and Phama was the sisters to John Collings. John is my wife's grandfather. John's wife, Claire Erickson Collings create a family tree early in 1990's. I have all kinds of pictures of the Collings family. There is one piece in the family that is missing, Lottie's (her first name was Charlotte)husband's (Thomas Collings) death and burial is unknown. It seem he died between 1916-1920. I have a picture of Thomas. I've researched local (Whatcom County) documents. He is listed as a land owner in 1916 and in 1920, Lottie is a widow. Do you have any information on it?

I see you both transferred information and updated a link I had added when creating the columbarium listing at St. Francis. Your listing had all the information and more than mine, so I deleted my duplicate memorial.

Thank you!

Long's Cemetery
Correction to my message. Long's Cemetery was not showing on my find a grave page. It is now. This is located at Fort Paul Long on the west side of the Shenandoah. All of the pictures I have taken were uploaded.

RE: Long Cemetery
Hi, you definitely need permission as this is way back on private property. Just an FYI, we went down a couple of private drives in this area and were met by armed individuals on multiple occasions. All quickly met us in vehicles with shotguns and handguns. They were mostly very friendly after we explained ourselves, but some were still hesitant. We have not encountered this anywhere else. I assured them all that I would make these pictures publicly accessible so they would not have unannounced visitors in the future.

I am not sure if you have visited my page:

Everything we found in the Page County library during our week of research is there, original photos of the bible that was copied by the DAR is there, the complete Lung/Long genealogy from 1997 is on there as well. Check out everything, Phillip's grazing land in Big Meadows became part of Shenandoah National Park.

All 3 forts were still in Lung descendants possession at the time we took the photos. I have traced my Snyder line back to the Susquehanna valley in 1838 (Union County, now Snyder County). They may be connected to the Shenandoah valley Snyder's but I do not have a connection as of yet. They have been much harder to trace due to the common name and Pennsylvania not keeping the records that Virginia did until much later.

I just realized that I have cemetery pics from one of the other Lung forts that I didn't put on find a grave. Keep my page handy, I will try and get them up in the coming week.

RE: Mary MacArthur Photo
?? He is listed in the Green-Wood online burial search and he has a Find-a-Grave memorial as well. From Mary's page click on his name (spouse) and you will go to his page.
