Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired military. Genealogy is a passion but I slow down when football season arrives. Willing to help others as much as possible. I focus on my Stewart roots (West Virginia and Pennsylvania) and the Marshall family on my mother's side (Virginia).

I have photo documented local cemeteries in my area of James City County, Charles City County, Williamsburg and York County, VA. I am currently working on cemeteries in Surry, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Southampton Counties, VA and on Richmond National Cemetery in Richmond, VA.

I have also photo documented several cemeteries in the Hilton Head Island, SC, Kitty Hawk (Dare County), NC and Leavenworth, KS areas while on vacation.

If I have added a memorial for one of your family members just let me know your Find A Grave member number and I will transfer it to you.

RE: James Alderman - Maple Shade Cemetery
Thanks a bazillion for the transfer :-)

No need for Donna to transfer ... she's my hubby's cousin. We worked together on uploading some memorials from some of the old cemeteries. I noticed her name on there and meant to say something to you about her but forgot LOL.

Thanks again. Have a fantastic evening.

RE: Major Watkins Marable
Ron, have you ever come across graves in Charles City County with these names:
Nancy or Ann F Marable ca 1813 - 05 May 1868 and her husband, David M. Pond, ca 1813 - 01 May 1868.
I trapsed through that same cemetery where Major Watkins Marable is buried looking for them, but could not find them.
Just wondered....

Major Watkins Marable
Ron, this is Major Watkins Marable, Jr, the son of Major Watkins "Wattie/Waddy" Marable, Sr who was born in 1818.
I am pretty sure that "Major" was their name, and not their rank. I need to check on that. The Marables are part of my family.

Thank you so very much for the permission. I am a volunteer as well and I share all my photos ... I wish everyone would do the same.

If you are willing to transfer the memorial to me I'd love to take care of it. This is my husband's line.

James Alderman - Maple Shade Cemetery
Hello. I wanted to say thank you for the photo of the grave stone of James Alderman located in Maple Shade Cemetery which you posted on

As for your photo ... may I have permission to post it (and any other of your photos of my ancestors' and/or their graves that you may have posted or will post in the future) on my file. I post a message under the photo giving credit to the person who took the photo. I have no interest in publishing any books or using the photos in any way other than for genealogical purposes. I have several things I post under the photos depending on the "owner" of the photo's desires. I have two below ... if you will allow me to post your grave photos on my Ancestry file then I'll place the statement of your choice. The second one has a _____ in it and that's where I would place your e-mail address so people can contact you directly for permission.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer and the volunteer has kindly given me permission to post this on my file. You should take the steps to contact the owner of the photo for permission to use this photo for your personal use ... permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give.

NOTE: This photo was obtained from a photo volunteer. Permission is NOT granted by me for any use as it is not mine to give. You must contact _______ for permission to use this photo.

Again, thank you so much for your kindness ... Find A Grave volunteers are wonderful people :-)

RE: Thanks
Hello Ron,

Thank you for the wonderful work you have done to capture the deceased members of the St. John Baptist community! I was born and raised in the area and I'm still a member of this wonderful church. Most of the information I sent you was on family members; however, please do not transfer. You are doing an awesome job and I commend you for your efforts. I stumbled upon Find A Grave trying to trace my family's history. I will continue to add pictures and send you information to fill in some of the missing "links!" If you need my assistance with anything - please let me know.
Thank you again - you are appreciated!

Sincerely yours,
Lynn Brown-Covington

RE: Jennie Douglass
Ron, you will not believe what I came across today. I was browsing through one of my Aunt Shirley's old cookbooks from the 2004 Jackson Family Reunion and it had a picture of Virginia Marshall Douglass along with a recipe for "Soup for Invalids". I was shocked and thought of you immediately! If you would like me to email it to you, I would be happy to do so. Just send me your email address. You can send it to me at if you prefer it not be posted online. Thanks! Dianna Pierson
