I have letters in the trunk from some of these Pinckards. Myrtle, Mattie J. and Delia I think. Not sure how Myrtle fits in. I know Delia and my great grandmother Julia were sisters and William J their brother. My mother, myself, my brother, 2 cousins and their sons are the only descendants left from the Samuel R. Drewry family.

I have added and linked all of the Drewrys except "Josh" Ernest Talmage Drewry who was the oldest sibling. He is buried in Baltimore with his wife Ida and they are not on findagrave. Their daughter is and she is buried in PA. I have pictures of a couple of the Pinckard sisters I believe and I have pictures of Samuel R, Julia and all of my great aunts and uncles. Of course Cyrus and Amanda are my Great-great-grandparents. I have also linked John and Catharine Boone Jamison (their cemetery) my other Great-great-grandparents to "Jane" Tena Jamison and added her, also supposed to be buried in the Pinckard/Drewry Cemetery. She married Richard C. Still not sure where he came from and evidently I have been told by the lady over that I would need mitochondrial DNA and since he only lists his mother as Sarah Drewry on his marriage certificate there is no way to track her or any other children she may have had. From my grandfather's letter, he came to live in Franklin County with a wealthy aunt and ended up staying with the Jamisons. I do not know who the aunt was and they came between Censuses. Her name was something like Penciolia. Richard C. is listed in the Jamison house in the 1850 Census with only "Jane" left at home. He and Jane did not marry until 1854. My grandfather was about 7 when Richard died and only remembered being around him a couple of times.

Also, Richard C. was her grandfather, not father. Rev. Samuel Richard and Julia Harriett Pinckard Drewry were her parents. They are also buried in this same cemetary. I have pictures taken of the Drewry headstone in the 40's in that cemetery after Julia's death.

She died in 1918. I have to look at the Bible page for the exact date, but VA Death Index does give 1918.

He is supposed to be in the Pinckard/Drewry Cemetery or there close by. Or he could be with John & Catharine Jamison with their daughter Jane (his wife). They are buried on I assume their original land. I now have the original page from the family Bible showing all their birth and death dates verified to what I have found online, so I will add them and then when I travel to Ferrum in a couple of weeks I will try and photograph their graves. Just opened my grandfather Drewry's trunk after many years. There are his genealogy notes where he did genealogy in the 1960's the hard way, original plat to this cemetery, photos of the cemetery from probably the 30's or 40's, tons of letters dating way back, pictures and tin type pictures of the family, Pinckards and Drewrys, etc. He saved everything. I would like to probably come to the Historic Center and see what they have as well and show some of what I have. Richard C. Drewry is somewhat of a mystery which may be solved by a letter my grandfather wrote which may be an explanation.

He is buried in Leaksville, NC. His granddaughter applied for a military headstone in 1931. Her application can be found on, U.S. Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963.

RE: carter - minter

FYI, I found our connection. We're 4th cousins, once removed.
