I'm researching the Rev David Rice line in VA, KY and TN; and the Philip Walker line in MA-RI-CT-NY-WI. If you have, or need, information about these families, please contact me.
I'm a cantor, organist and conductor, and I enjoy photographing old gravestones.
Find-a-Grave offers an opportunity to share information on an unprecedented scale. Much like Google's project to digitize every book ever published, this site aspires to document the lives of everyone who has gone before us! How cool would THAT be?
Jennie Leyburn Cocke Hi, just wanted to let you know I set up memorial for Jennie Cocke, wife of Alonzo Rice Cocke. I saw you were maintaining his memorial if you would like me to transfer hers to you I will be glad to. I have been putting grave locations on Find A Grave for Riverview Cemetery here in Waynesboro VA and the old records I am using shows "Burial" unknown for a tremendous amount of gravesites. Some I have been able to identify some not. Jennies was one I did locate. The cemetery records werent kept the best back then. The inscription is on the side of the monument and is very faint, I really had trouble reading it and until I uploaded it and then it made perfect sense. Hope this is of help. Regards - Beth Brady
Mauck Coffman Burner Family Graveyard Can you help me find this Cemetery ? Address, road or street intersection, GPS, map, or any other help you may offer. You posted a photo of this Cemetery on 7/05/2011. Thanks, Norm
RE: john mclaughlin The correct cemetery is Knights Burial Ground, which is located in the back of Oak Grove and is far older than Oak Grove cemetery. Since the memorial in Oak Grove was posted in 2008, while the one I posted is from 2010, I asked Deb to switch her memorial to the correct cemetery. The photos are of the same stone, but mine might be more readable. When she switches the memorial to Knights Burial Ground, I'll add my photo to her memorial.
