RE: Chester Bullard Gravely
The namesake certainly would seem very reasonable. Maybe Desmond knows...and yes, I was referring to Desmond. Do you have his email address? Send me a note at if you don't have it and I'll send it to you. Diane

RE: Chester Bullard Gravely
Thanks. You might be interested in the fact I have been working with Sally Parker to get some of the Gravely cemeteries in Henry Co, VA. more distinguished and with the correct burials. The cemeteries have been renamed with the name of the owner of the home place where the burials took place, descriptions added and a map from our GPS coordinates. There are probably still some Gravelys not quite right that don't have markers, but I'm working with the Henry Co. historian to see if we can get that correct too. We visited there a few weeks back and realized there were errors as to who was buried where.

Yes, sitting on that hill it is a beautiful view. I went in December, cold as hell, but as I said, it was pretty sitting on that hill. Can you see it from the road with every thing growing for the summer. Ok, gonna hit the sack, don't have to work tomorrow but its past the old mans bed time, lol, take care

That may have been it, that stone has been added new since I have been there, which is maybe about 2 yrs ago. For 2 years I have pretty much been doing Danville City Cemeteries, working on Highland now, have finished Danville Memorial Gardens & Mountain View, even had time to squeeze Henry Burial Park in between

No, I grew up in Henry County but have lived in Cary North Carolina for 38 years. I do get back to Henry County four or five times a year. Thanks for the transfer. If I find out anymore about Mary I will let you know. Reamey

I think I have now made all the changes and corrections as requested as far as I can verify from my own research. I am not able to visit the Young & Hale Cemetery anytime soon because I do not live in VA. I did visit two years ago, and I can attest that the grave markers are nearly indecipherable. I apologize for the delay in response. I have children starting school tomorrow, and only have so much time for genealogy research. In reference to Oliver Perry Ferguson who married Nancy Brown, his parents may be Thomas B. Ferguson and Sarah Hambrick (listed on the 1850 census as Thomas B. Furguson, age 70, Sarah, age 64. and a Lafayette, age 22.) This is only a guess. Everything I know of my ancestors I have only learned since the death of my maternal grandmother, Eva Ferguson Leffue, three years ago. (Memorial #79753404) Any additional information you uncover would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. ~ Julie

Hi Rebecca, I don't have much info on Mary Winn Goode. She was my mother's first cousin. I knew many of my mother's cousins but she had about 100 cousins and I think Mary moved away from Henry County/Martinsville and that is probably why I do not remember her. You can transfer her to me if you want. I am going to a family reunion in Henry County this Sunday; maybe I can find out a little about Mary and add a short bio. Thanks, Reamey
