Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a part time genealogist for almost 10 years. I started out photographing headstones while doing my own family genealogy.

My paternal roots are centered in Montgomery and Pulaski Counties in VA and include the Hodge, Branscom, Mallory, Stanger lines.

Maternal lineage are the Brinkley and Mays family in and around Smyth County, VA, and also the Ricks and Morey lines in southern GA.

Of great interest to me are the Smith Family that were of Lumbee descent from Robeson County, NC and the Carroll family of Wilkes County, NC.

Please feel to contact me if we share any of the same lineage. I am always welcome to sharing any family history information!

Just want to thank you for your work. I was searching for a friend from VPI days on the internet, decided to check the findagrave website. The name and picture came up and you had entered the info. Must say I am a little sad tonight but thank you for putting the info out there. She was special. Hope to visit the grave net time I'm in Bburg.

You have listed the above as the son of Hiram Hornbarger and Sally Lucas Hornbarger. He is in fact the son of Peter Hornbarger and Sarah Amanda Harris. His father Peter died in 1862 of typhoid fever and is buried in the family cemetery in Vicker.

RE: Thank you
I have added the memorial for Tracy Mallory and transferred to you. From the annotation on the block card that the cemetery gave me, it appears that Mavis Mallory was interred there on 5-30-2002. I have added her photo to the existing memorial.

RE: Thank you
Hi Misty--I appreciate your thank you. Also wanted to let you know that next to Roy's headstone is one for Mavis (wife) and Tracy (grandson). If you'd like me to create the memorials and transfer to you, let me know---or I'd be happy to post the photo, if you create the memorial. Just let me know which you prefer.

Lee Roy was also married to Lola's sister, Nellie I. Adams, but I don't know where Nellie is buried or if she had been married previously. If I find out any further info, I will let you know.
