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. |
I so appreciate all the volunteer photographers who take the time and TLC to go out and take the grave photos. For hard to read older graves, RB suggests a way to photograph the visually missing data. She suggests using a mirror and reflecting the sun onto the hard to read area. You can even use two mirrors if you need to twist the sun's direction.
If you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones, check out two good sites at http://iagenweb.org/ringgold/cemeteries/gravestonesymbols.html and
http://www.graveaddiction.com/symbol.html Neat informative sites. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist?

Death date corrected. All you did was put shaving cream on stone,no rubbing at all? Amazing!!
|Amy Robbins-Tjaden||RE: Dr. Clark Wang|
The green part of the cemetery is quite peaceful and lovely but the many trees make all the photos come out almost in black and white. I go there often just to reflect and will keep trying to get a better photo to add to his memorial.
|greatscot||RE: Anna G WIllson McClung|
Wilson (or Willson) was her maiden name. Since her gravestone reads "Wilson," I guess that's the one to go by. Thanks for checking.

I never post complete obituaries, as it is against Find-a-Grave guidelines, and for good reason. If you are a close family member, I would be happy to make a transfer. Very best wishes and thanks for your efforts.

Thank you so much!!! I just found the links you'd sent through Find A Grave for Sarah Ruffner Campbell to her parents in the Stonewall Jackson Cemetery, Lexington, Virginia. Because of the links you sent, I was also able to link Mrs. Campbell's husband, the Rev. Dr. R. F. Campbell to his parents, who are also buried in the Lexington cemetery, and found where you'd added a memorial to Dr. & Mrs. Campbell's baby son that died.
This is all very neat to me. I grew up in the First Presbyterian Church in Asheville, NC, were Dr. Campbell had been minister for many, many years (long before I was born), but folks often spoke both of him and of Mrs. Campbell when I was growing up....and then, I attended college at Washington & Lee in Lexington, Class of 1987. In fact, I lived for a time quite near the cemetery, and would walk over there and visit the graves of the Confederate heroes. (I am distantly kin to Mrs. T. J. "Stonewall" Jackson.)
Interestingly, long after I left W & L, I discovered possible family connections of my own to the area. I think my 5th great grandfather, Judge Robert Lindsay (c. 1735-1801), of Guilford Co., NC, sent at least two of his sons, John A. Lindsay (1767-1828) and Robert Lindsay, Jr. (1776-1818), to Lexington for their educations. I think the Lindsays came originally from the MD/PA border area, but wonder if they spent some time in Virginia on the way to NC. My Stearns/Starnes, Field and Elswick ancestors also lived in the area. (I wish I'd known all that when I was in school up there!)

Memorial #63986126, if you want to correct her name to read Elizabeth (Betsy) Frances Buchanan it would be appreciated. Thank you.
|Aggie Reynolds||Emma Hughes|
This is in response to your message about my great grandmother Emma Hughes. Sorry, I know you said leave comment under the edit feature but I could not get this to work for me.
Emma Ayers married twice, the first time to Robert Newton Moore and the second time to Reeves Edward Hughes. One child of Emma and Robert's was my grandmother, Elizabeth Agnes Moore.
The second husband, Reeves was several years younger than Emma. When Emma died July 6, 1926, she was buried in Timber Ridge ARP Presbyterian Church, Lexington VA.
Reeves died September, 1938 and as you know is in Stonewall Jackson Cemetery. After Emma died Reeves married Elizabeth Jane Clark. Thus, the confusion with my grandmother Elizabeth Agnes Moore who has the same birth year with Elizabeth Clark of 1892.
I am not sure where the second wife of Reeves is buried. Elizabeth Clark either married a Mutispaugh before or after Reeves, don't know which.
But one thing for sure, Emma's child Elizabeth Agnes Moore is NOT buried beside Reeves Hughes. That gravestone was for Reeves second wife Elizabeth Jane Clark.
Elizabeth Agnes Moore Cabaniss Anderson died September 9, 1967 and is buried in Clover Cemetery, Clover, VA.
Hope this helps with your research. My tree is on Ancestry.com. Let me know if I can help further and thanks for all your hard work.

I sure hope you are taking pictures at Stonewall.
