Bio and Links
Bio Photo I volunteered as a photographer the very first time I entered this website because I thought the whole concept was a great idea! I've found helping folks document their ancestors and preserve deteriorating cemeteries to be a very worthwhile use of my spare time.

I live in a rural area, so if you can, please provide travel directions, road or highway names or numbers, nearby towns, or landmarks, etc., to help me find churches, private cemeteries, or family burial sites. You can get grave location info by calling the appropriate Public Works Dept.

My family includes Watkins, Jones, McLemore, Dickens, Majors, and Ragland -- located in Southside Virginia and Roxboro, NC.

Arlene Stovall ~ Mount Calvary
Hello Barb. I was looking around Virginia for bogus cemeteries, it's what I do. They always stand out because they only have one or two memorials and no location map. And I noticed THIS one. There's no Mount Calvary Cemetery in Halifax. If you read the obit you posted, they're talking about Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Brookneal; Brookneal is in Campbell County which borders Halifax County to the north. THIS is most likely the cemetery where (obit says) Arlene was buried. You can move your memorial there quite easily, using the Burial: [Edit] tool, found above the cemetery name. No offense, not my concern at all, I'm truly just trying to be helpful.

County Line Baptist Church Halifax County, Va
September 5, 2015

This Findagrave site.

There are two County Line Churches and Cemeteries on Chatham Road. I have been working on my family tree and I have a lot of ancestors buried in the Java location.
I talked with a man that has lived on Chatham Road, Vernon Hill, Va...all his life... and attended the County Line Baptist Church, on the Pittsylvania and Halifax County line, 13142 Chatham Road, all his life.
He said this is the correct address for both of the County Line Churches.
County Line Baptist Church and Cemetery
Very close to the Halifax and Pittsylvania County Line
13142 Chatham Rd
Halifax County
Virginia, USA
County Line Missionary Baptist Church and Cemetery
This is located about 4 miles to the east of the county line of
Pittsylvania and Halifax County Line
Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Otis R. Dillard, Pastor
10141Chatham Rd
Vernon Hill
Halifax County
Virginia, USA
I hope everyone will understand this information

Pounds Family Cemetery
Hi Barb, I will be visiting the Halifax area from Los Angeles and wanted to visit the Pounds Family Cemetery to pay my respects to a dear friend. Is the cemetery located somewhere off Old Grubby Road and is there any mile marker from a highway intersection I could use to locate?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

James Green Watkins
Barb, would you know if there is a headstone for James Green Watkins born 1908 Danville, Va. and died 1964 North Carolina. Death register (familysearch) says he is buried in Green Hill Cemetery, Danville. Also he had a wife by the name of Juanita Womble Watkins. Thanks, Debbie

RE: Geraldine Southard
Hi Barb, hope all is well & you're staying warm. While working on Mountain View, I noticed that you removed your photo on Geraldine. Go ahead & add mine that I sent you if you want to, that way she has one on her memorial. I think I deleted mine, I can't seem to locate it, later, Larry

RE: Geraldine Southard
Hi Barb, if you want, just add it if you like, I have no problem with that at all, I don't care about any credit or anything. If you like, I can also send you a photo of Lela May Brown that I sent you the correct dates on, I took a close up of the wording that shows her dates very well. Also her parents are William D Brown #123454400 & Ella Brown #123454436 if you care to link her to them.
I will soon have the cemetery completely photographed, I am in the last 1/3 of it now, it just takes time getting them entered, thanks for doing a good job and everything, Larry

Jabez is my GGGrandfather. I have been searching for my grandparents graves for several years. I can not thank you enough for posting this photo of his headstone.
Warmest regards,

RE: Duplicate Cemetery
Dear Barb:

Thank you for your note. I did not know how to put a city name in the county slot when creating the location. I sent an e-mail to Find A Grave and asked them to merge my files with the 2007 files and to transfer the authorship to the person who manages that file.
Thanks again for the heads up.
