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. It opens up a world to many. I'm glad to add yours also. My family in VA, PA and MD were there so early, they're kind of connected to everyone there. That's why I feel a responsibility to connect and record data when I come across it.

Check out a way a friend shared, to take better pix of old and hard to read gravestones using a second flash.

If you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones, check out two good sites at and Neat informative sites. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist?

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 am open to transfers so please feel free to contact me on the specific site.

Please let me know if you catch my errors, I missed them. Mea maxima culpa

CONTACT ME FOR GENEALOGICAL HIRE for research, especially in VA/MD/PA, through any of my memorials.

Please send REQUESTS for CORRECTIONS, CHANGES OR TRANSFERS or discussions through the EDIT feature on the specific memorial (top right), that way I know the EXACT site.

Samuel Woods
Hi Linda,
I'm trying to follow your notes on the two Samuel Wood memorials. I've been working on Araminta Whittington who married James Wood and trying to figure out which Samuel is their son. Some of your notes are a bit cryptic and I'm not quite following. Please email me so I can try to sort them out!

RE: Wilson Graves
I went out to Derry after church this morning and rephotographed the Wilson stone. Overcast today actually helped make the inscription easier to read. Now I have an image with her full inscription. I have posted it to the Eleanor Wilson memorial and filled in the Marker Transcription field.

Wilson Graves
I am very new at cemetery photography, so I apologize for cutting off the inscription about Eleanor on the lower part of that stone. I will get back there today or tomorrow and get a better image. I will transcribe the inscriptions, too. Many of the stones in this cemetery are completely unreadable. This one is not quite that far gone. It may have been harder to pick out at a different time of the day or under different weather conditions. Also, some stones in this cemetery have been damaged and repaired/replaced at various times. It is possible this stone was lying on the ground or something like that when someone else searched a few years ago. Anyway, I am pleased I was able to find these two memorials. I am still searching for others in this cemetery. There are 9 pending photo requests and I was not able to locate any of them on Thursday.

2nd Error in Flower Note
You posted a flower with a note on memorial 19234224 (Eleanor Wilson) noting that a volunteer was unable to find the stone in 2012. However, I was in this cemetery on May 19, 2016 and I have posted photos of both her head stone (a joint one with Martha Wilson, possibly her mother) and a foot stone on the memorial. Perhaps you would like to revise your note, as this joint grave marker appears to have been in place for some time.

Error in Flower Note
You posted a note with a flower on Find A Grave 19234221 (Martha Wilson) that a 2012 search of the grave yard found no stone for this person. However, I was in this cemetery May 19th, 2016 and found both a headstone and a foot stone for her. Both are now posted on the memorial. Perhaps you would like to revise your note, as her grave markers have clearly been there for some time.

I made corrections on his memorial, sorry for the incorrect dates, should have caught that myself. If anything else needs correcting or added, please let me know.

John and Katherine Anderson McNutt
I am researching my ggggfather Peter McNutt. Some researchers think his father was Joseph, a son of John and Katherine. Do you have any records/knowledge of a son by that name?
Thank you so much for your help.
