|I am from the Northern Neck of Virginia, and most of my relatives are here. I especially like to honor our soldiers of the past and present, and having memorials for them is one way we can be sure they will not be forgotten. I would love to see every grave yard listed, with the folks buried there, and kept for future generations, whether at a church or home, or elsewhere. A big THANK YOU .. to all the folks out there who have sent me info.. and photos of my relatives. I hope, I have helped people in return. I will transfer memorials, especially to family members. Also I have listed memorials and photos for Gibeon Baptist Church Cemetery, and Totuskey Baptist Church Cemetery, both in Richmond County, Va., and some at Carmel United Methodist Church, Kinsale, Westmoreland County, Va. You may add any photos you wish to my memorials, I do not mind, as there may be a relative of someone out there, who does not have a photo.As you have probably already noticed, I have memorials for mostly Northern Neck people, and their connections. I am related to Moon, Clarke, King, Hale, Anthony, Jenkins, Bryant, Thrift and many more here in the Northern Neck.|

|Bonnie Bell||RE: Louise Haydon Garland|
Thank you, Eva. The headstone for Louise Haydon Garland was the correct stone, it's just that the last two letters of her maiden name had been chopped off in the picture. I know the people who go to the cemeteries to take pictures of the tombstones are doing a wonderful job.
I played around with linking spouses and adding a burial. My Uncle Samuel Clifton French was Jacob and Nellie French's first son. I added his name and the cemetery where he is buried. His wife, Edna Wright French was buried in Arlington National Cemetery as the W/O Samuel French. I tried to add her date of birth Nov. 28, 1891, but couldn't find a way to add it.
My Aunt Cecil Constance French Steckley was buried in Roseland Cemetery, but I couldn't find her headstone. She was born Sept 6, 1916 and died August 27, 1991 in Bennington, VT.
|Bonnie Bell||RE: French Family tombstones|
Thanks, Eva, you are terrific. I went to the UM Henderson Church October 2012 and took my own pictures. Wm. H. French is my great grandfather. Mary Ellen is my great grandmother. Little Marvin French was my grandfather's nephew. My own nephew, Johnny "Jody" Johnston died when he was four. My great Uncle Marvin's wife was Mary E. French and her tombstone is there also. She was the mother of young Marvin. Uncle Marvin married Lucille and moved to Baltimore where they both died and are buried somewhere in Baltimore. They had another son named William who lived in Severna Park where Hugh and John French lived and died. I asked my cousins who lived in Severna Park if they knew William and none of them knew there was a relative close by. Is it possible to link my Grandfather Jacob and Grandmother Nellie French to their children. My Aunt Cecil French Steckly was buried in Roseland with her parents, but there is no headstone. I found her obit on ancestry.com.

I was asked to remove this name and photo and cannot locate it. Was it already removed? If not, any guidance on how to remove? Vicki Kinsel
|Bonnie Bell||RE: Louise Haydon Garland|
Thanks Eva. I guess I should let this problem rest, but it is so hard to do this genealogy research when the names are spelled incorrectly. On Find-A-Grave I think it would be proper to list the name exactly as it is etched into the stone and not how someone thinks it should be spelled. This is why I wonder if the ON for Louise Haydon Garland was left off because someone wanted the reader to believe she was Louise Hayden. There was a Louise Hayden who was the daughter of Howard Hayden who lived across the street from Allen J. Haydon. Bayne Palmer O'Brien wrote a story in the 1981 Bulletin of the Northumberland County Historical Society about playing with both of these girls when she lived in Callao. You can read the obituary on Find-A-Grave attached to James Vincent Garland, Jr. that mentions the wife he was married to for 27 year, the former Louise Haydon.

I just wondered why the maiden name for Louise Garland was chopped off in the picture. Her maiden name is listed on Find-A-Grave as Hayden, but the headstone spells her name as Haydon. My great-great grandmother was Elizabeth A. Haydon. The president of the Northumberland County Historical Society is A. Wiatt Garland and his mother was Louise Haydon Garland. He could attest to the fact that the name on the headstone is correct and the change of the spelling on Find-A-Grave from Haydon to Hayden is incorrect. Wiatt Garland's grandfather was Allen Jett Haydon and the A in Wiatt's name is for Allen after his grandfather. Can you change the picture of Louise Haydon Garland's headstone to include the entire spelling of her maiden name?

Glad to add the addition information. Let me know if you have any more on him or his daughter.
|Tony Bryant||RE: Wilkins, Ellis|
Thanks for the offer, but it's not necessary, they are only distant kin and you do a great job of managing your memorials. Take care.
