|Bio and Links|
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. I haven't tried it but thought I'd share it.
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?

|Norman Graham||RE: Nancy Dunlap Faulkner|
Nancy Faulkner's mother was Isobel 'Nancy" Colvin, born April 1730 in Campbelstown, Scotland.
Isobel's parents were Robert Colvin and Margaret Culbertson and they were married 8Dec1724 in Campelstown also.
Isobel married John Dunlop in March 1755 and they had nine children with Nancy being the third oldest. Isobel and John died in Augusta County, Virginia but the dates are unknown.
Nancy and Daniel Faulkner were married in 1794 in Virginia. They had eleven children.
You can find the complete history of the Dunlop Family in the book "The House of Dunlop" written by Rev. James Hannah of Oak Hill, Ohio. My grandfather Thomas Jefferson supplied Mr. Hannah with the information on the Faulkner Family.
Back in 1984 I was able to locate the original Faulkner Cemetery in a wooded area next to a creek but when I returned two years ago I found the cemetery had been destroyed due to land clearing and strip mining. Luckily I found the tombstones leaning against a tree about 50 yards away and have had them restored and placed at the CM Cemetery in Oak Hill where many of the Faulkner descendants are buried. The actual graves are now under a corn field.
|J. Wayne||RE: Robert Dunlap|
Robert, Your 2014 email stated that my family research email address: firstname.lastname@example.org was not working? Without the "returned why" information I can not determine what the problem was at the time. Please try again. I have used that email address consistently without any known problems for 14+ yrs. Please reply to email@example.com to confirm receipt, thanks. "J. Wayne"

I noticed the emails for transferring the Hamiltons: Reubenia, Emma, Alexander and John.
I don't mind looking after them, but none of these Hamilton's are in my family.
I need John Hamilton 1766-1833 and Alexander Hamilton 1803-1868 whenever you get a chance.
|John Addy||RE: Rachel Bell, 69999566|
I have walked the cem. again looking at each stone there and I did not find any stone for her. I am going to get a hold of the person who has the layout of location for the cem. to see where she may be. It could be a unmarked site.
|Jerry Gill||FAG # 111402177, Mary Stuart Moffett Poague|
Mary Poague's obituary doesn't appear to be just a typo. It states that she died Saturday night, December 31st, 1898. The issue is more likely, was her death after midnight. Being one day off is not that uncommon, a lot of the head stones and the corresponding death certificates do not match. Do we want to use the dates that are etched in stone or go with the written dates on paper? By presenting both cases people can see what's there and make a choice. I will also transfer your cousin to you if you would like. Thanks.
|ebmc||RE: Elizabeth Hamilton, 145338782|
Elizabeth's marker is a large, box like, rectangular monument. The inscription faces skyward and was in remarkable condition. I will go back and photograph her husband, John, and also take a wide view pic so you can see. They have identical monuments. I did not notice any inscriptions on the sides but I will double check. I ran out of time the other day to complete the job.
Interesting note: they are located on the main path of the cemetery just down from Gen. Stonewall Jackson and his family.

|Warack60||RE: Nettie Waddell, 147866533|
Sorry the photo isn't any better resolution on my end, but I jotted down dates, and I have 1896 and 1968. Hope this helps

|Harry Hamilton||Martha Hamilton|
Ok, I have edited Martha's listing. I don't mind taking care of the Hamilton's at Falling Spring.
I'm the last of them, might as well.
