RE: 81845815 OLIVER PERRY FERGUSON
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

RE: 81845815 OLIVER PERRY FERGUSON
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

RE: MARY GOODE
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

RE: WM T FERGUSON
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

RE: MARY GOODE
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

RE: Hello, Larry!
When you get to Rt 40 from 605, make a right towards Ferrum, turn left on Sawmill road(752), go a few miles, it sits on a hill on the right side beside a church out in an open field. I hope you can see it, because I went in December, cold as all get out then

RE: 81845815 OLIVER PERRY FERGUSON
I have no idea what either one of them says, this had to have been taken on an extremely sunny day and the stones are as rough as a cob. There was 2 ladies that sent me to this cemetery, one from Ohio & one from Illinois, it is their family cemetery from the early generation. Both gave me some info on just about everyone in there. A lot of the stones were in extremely bad condition, many broken, some partially under ground, some unmarked, so we will never know exactly who all is in it. Some you couldn't read at all. I remember one being a Bridges, but a family member has since had a new marker put up. He wanted me to go back & photograph it, but it is way too far out of the way to go for only one pic.
