Look at grave photo and you will see part of an iron CSA cross.

Lucas family Eastside Cemetery
I have searched for your Lucas requests in Pearisburg today and about 6 months ago. The only stone I can find is the one that is posted for Wiley. The stones in the immediate area of his are Johnston & Emmons. The area behind his has no markers. I searched the rest of the cemetery, as well. I have photos of the surrounding area where Wiley is buried. I can email you those if you would like.

RE: FAG# 57300454
Thanks for the transfer, again.
The "b" in Hamlin didn't drop at a fixed point; some used it, others didn't; some flipped back and forth. Other spellings of the Hamlin name include: Hamblen, Hamblin, Hamblyn, Hameline, Hamelinn, Hamelyn, Hamlen, Hamline, Hamlyn and Hemblen.
I have never been to Giles County but sure have a lot of relatives in VA.
Best regards, Karl

Fletcher Family
James, I wanted to thank you for having the heart to take pictures of the grave site where my family is buried. It makes me so sad that these grave sites, have gone uncared for. If I lived closer I would do something about that.

Rowland Fletcher is buried here as well as a few of his family. Even though their graves, will be gone one day, they will always live in our hearts, and we will meet them.

Vest infants - Simmons Cemetery, W.Va.
Joseph Thomas Joe Vest and wife Izola Furrow Vest had two babies a newborn and a 15-month old -- die in November 1918.

Vest, Earl K (Memorial 59283713)
b. Aug. 4, 1916 d. Nov. 17, 1918

Vest, Mabel M. (Memorial 59283823)
b. Nov. 6, 1918 d. Nov. 30, 1918

Most of the family obits list Earl and Mabel among the siblings. I cant find a birth or death record for either. But Ive talked with a family member who confirmed that Earl and Mabel buried in the Simmons Cemetery are children from this Vest family.

Can you confirm that Cora Pearl Cook Brown memorial 46123634 is buried at Huntersville AR Presbyterian Church Cemetery? Death certificate says she is buried at Prosperity AR Presbyterian Church and there is memorial 53387677 for her at that church? Thanks for the help.

Micajah Sanders
Hi James,
Wanted to thank you for putting info on Micajah/Michagah Sanders/Saunders b. 1798 gravesite. I was wondering if you could remove Joseph Martin as one of his children. I believe Joseph may have been an employee. He is listed as a son in the household of Mary Martin in the 1850 Giles County, Virginia census. She was a neighbor of Micajah Sanders/Saunders family.
His 4th G-Granddaughter
