Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also.

Check out if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.

Check out Scotch-Irish Presbyterians From Ulster to Rockbridge, by Angela M. Ruley, 3 October 1993. Angela headed the Rockbridge Area Genealogy Society and wrote several impressive publications on Rockbridge Co. This well written article combines pretty much everything I've found and more.

I welcome all additions, connections, corrections or changes and transfers so please feel free to contact me.

Cyrus Lam Memorial
Did you notice the note in the one photo showing the overall cemetery. The plot for Cyrus is in an Annex. I have included the coordinates in the note. If you visit as I recall the marker is at the top of the cemetery near the fence.

RE: cyrus m lam
Good evening. Cyrus Morrison Lam was married to Mary Agnes Dixon in 1865 , and then to Eliza Ann Dixon in 1883. Some references say they were sisters, but their parents' names are different, so I think they were cousins.

Larry Cochran
Spelling of Cochran
I recently talked to my brother (Ronald W. Cochran) who had a discussion, maybe 30 years ago, with his Grandaunt Hazel Cochran Baker, a daughter of Lee Cochran and a granddaughter of John Strain Cochran. She related that John detested the name Cochran as it now pronounced (considering it derogatory), but preferred the older pronunciation (which he couldn't remember, likely Gaelic). Possibly the "Cochraw" on his tombstone is more of a phonetic pronunciation that he used.

She said John called himself Scot-Irish (I have a tentative line through some Cochrans in Ulster Ireland, and earlier Scotland, but haven't confirmed it). During the Civil War, he would not respond to anyone who called him by Cochran as we hear it now.

His father was James H. Cochran. His father was Andrew Cochran. His father was William H. Cochran, all of Virginia. I believe his father was William Cochran in Ulster Ireland, but don't have it confirmed.

"On 11 Aug 1756, he served in the French and Indian war in the Augusta Co. Militia, under Samuel Norwood. Norwood records a list of his men in his company, including Alexander Telford."

Do you have a copy of this list?

John G Hamilton in Graceland
You may be interested in the plot I found for John G and Hannah Grigsby Hamilton of Rockbridge Va in Graceland. The plot also includes Elizabeth Jane Grigsby, William Talliaferro Hamilton, and Reuben and Virginia Hamilton Chandler. Please check out their memorials. I also think I can get better pictures of Leander McCormick and the Shields families with the right sunlight conditions (There are alot of trees and shrubs around them) . Regards, Bob Lerch

RE: Mary S Laird
Jim wrote me last night about John C Laird, and I realized he was right on that one, so I added my pic of the stone to your memorial and deleted my memorial, which was newer than yours. I went through the rest of the cemetery, looking to see if I had made any other mistakes like that, but didnt see any. But, I will go look at Mary and see whats what and fix it if necessary.
Thanks, LC

Wilford Lyons Hardesty
I am the granddaughter of Mary Alice Hardesty (Costello) I have my Great Grandmother's bible listing Wilford as her husband/daughters father. I have been unable to find any marriage records or Nanny's (Mary Alice) Birth Records. I am thankful for the information on the wedding dates. Do you know where they were married? (I am assuming Laurel or Calvert County, I was actually born in Prince Frederick County)
