Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family spent many Sunday afternoons visiting our family cemeteries. We would stroll together, sometimes three or four generations at a time, gently touching the stones, whispering greetings, shedding a tear or two, always careful of our steps, sharing memories and legends, passing the stories down from one generation to the next. I always felt like I knew everyone in those cemeteries even though thay had passed away decades, even centuries, before my birth. As children, we would stand before the stone of an ancestor and carefully recite everything we had been told, to the knowing nods or corrections of our elders. I cherish the memories of those Sundays in my adult life. My family no longer lives close enough to each other to stroll through those cemeteries. Find A Grave has allowed me to create virtual family cemeteries that my family can stroll through at any time without the limitations of time or distance. We can't touch the stones or hear the wind in the pines, but we can still whisper a greeting, shed a tear, and remember.
I will gladly edit or transfer any of the memorials that I have submitted that are not in my direct line.

RE: Samuel Snowden Cowman
He was my third great grandmother's younger brother. They were children of Joseph Cowman and Mary Snowden. No need to transfer unless you want. I just wanted to verify when he died. Thanks again!

RE: Memorial 36733233 Marley
What child of Benjamin did you descend from? You are a distant cousin. Have you even discovered Benjamin's parents? The Surry County Virginia Marleys migrated to North Carolina around 1790.

Memorial 36733233 Marley
I love your Bio Roanna. I tried to request a transfer of the subject memorial for Benjamin Marley. He is a brother to Henry Marley who is my Marley ancestor. Henry and Maria Bray moved to Indiana and their son John Marley moved to North Carolina. John had a son Benjamin who is my second great grandfather. I tried to enter information using the Edit key but was blocked from getting it to you. If you are not also connected to this Marley family a transfer will be appreciated.
