|Robert Parrott||re Joseph Woods (1723-1775)|
Hello, I'm Robert E. Parrott, Knoxville, TN. I'm a 4th g-grandson of Joseph Woods (1723-1775), through his youngest son Thomas Woods (1758-1833) and Thomas' son Joseph and Joseph's son James Andrew. I've been working on the Woods family for many years. My book will be published within a few months, I hope. It is entitled "On the Road to Canaan: The Story of Thomas Woods (1758-1833) and Lorena Byers Woods And Their Family." I was fortunate to inherit some early Woods memorabilia kept by my grandmother, Alda Woods Parrott (1846-1927). I would be glad to hear from other descendants of Joseph/Thomas Woods. Best wishes, Bob Parrott.

Obituary published in The Washington Post Wednesday May 12, 1915 "Mrs. Pitzer Dead in Salem.
Word was received in Washington last night of the death in Salem, Val, of Mrs. Laura Pitzer, wife of the Rev. Alexander Pitzer, who organized the Central Presbyterian Church in 1868 and served as its pastor until 1906. Mrs. Pitzer had been in ill health for about a year. Funeral services, which will be held in Salem tomorrow, will be attended by the Rev. James H. Taylor, present pastor of Central Presbyterian Church, R. P. Clarke, an elder of the church, and other friends from Washington. Mrs. Pitzer is survived by her husband, now in his eightieth year, a brother, Mr. McClanahan, of Roanoke, Va., and a sister, Mrs. White, of Raleigh, N.C."
This obituary doesn't give an exact date of death but from the publish date I estimate her date of death as 10 May 1915 and from the clue in the obituary her burial date would have been 13 May 1915. The 1900 U.S. federal census places her birth to be Sept. 1841.

Obituary published in The Washington Post in 1927
"The Rev. James H. Taylor preached the sermon at the memorial services held yesterday in the Central Presbyterian Church for the Rev. Alexander W. Pitzer, pastor emeritus of the church who died July 22 at his home in Salem, Va. Dr. Taylor outlined the work of Dr. Pitzer in this city. In May, 1888, he organized the Central Presbyterian Church, of which he remained pastor until 1906, when Dr. Taylor became pastor. The building at Fifteenth and Irving streets northwest was erected in 1914, the congregation previously worshiping at Third and I streets northwest. Dr. Pitzer preached the dedication sermon."

Thanks for the info on Peter. I made the connections and then sent him on his way for you to administer. I have no connections to your family but was honored to care for Peter for a little while.
For more recent deaths, many states will only sell copies of DCs to very close relatives. You can find out by Googling the correct state...

Correction John Taylor my 3rd Great Grandfather was the son of Joseph Taylor and Elizabeth Heaverin
I received your message via Find A Grave. William Burns was a brother to our ancestor, Elizabeth Burns, who married Joel Overholser. She was my husband's great, great, great grandmother.
Any information that you would share would be appreciated as the Burns family has been tough to find information on.
If you want me to add information, or if you wish, I can transfer. As I said, I really don't have that much information on the family. Lisa

|Jane Ireland||re: Edgar Fox|
We are unable to locate a memorial for Edgar, but we did locate a headstone to some other members of the family which we photographed. They are as follows: Jerome B. Fox, Maggie N. Fox and a most interesting plaque re: Margaret Caldwell Fox. You will be delighted to see this. So much family history.
