I have been interested in genealogy for about nine years. I became interested when I found most of the research had already been done on my mother's side of the family going back for centuries. Until then, I had only speculated about my ancestry. I do some traveling with my job and as luck would have it, it is in an area where most of my relatives are buried (on Mom and Dad's side). When I am not too busy on the job I am out hanging out in cemeteries. It is so exciting to actually find the grave of some of the ancestors where I have only seen a name on paper. It validates their existence and a link to my heritage. I love to pass that along to someone else who may also be looking, but is just too far away. Famous ancestors in my tree are "Jack Daniels" 1st cousin 4 times removed as well as the Majors family "Tennessee Vols" and Robert Burns "the poet".
After finding my family cemetery, I joined with other descendants to restore our ancestors final resting place. My GGGGrandfather James B. Gowen is a veteran of the War of 1812. This cemetery is on, what used to his land. He planted a cedar tree and asked when he passed away to be buried under this tree. Some 70 years later he was. See www.gowencemetery.com
Elizabeth Daniel - Calaway I have an Elizabeth Daniel - and you Elizabeth Calaway - apparently - you cousin says they are the same person - you may take my information and put in on yours - then I will remove mine. Yours in older.

The cover photo is incorrect for Pleasant hill Cemetery in Pleasant Hill, look at the map. That photo really needs to be attached to Pleasant Hill Cemetery on Pleasant Hill Rd. in Lynchburg. All memorials with photos need to be in the Lynchburg Pleasant Hill Cemetery. The Memorials without photos, need to stay where they are in Pleasant Hill.
