I was wondering why you didn't request a transfer. :) I usually transfer just because. Most of the folks in Grove Hill aren't related to me, it's just a really pretty cemetery. The last several years people have been working really hard to get the whole cemetery listed and photographed. When I started going out there and photographing there where only about 2,000 or so gravesites listed. Happy searching.

Will get with you later. Planning a trip for tomorrow! Go to my tree Bettis-Cauthen and I have the notice for Spotswood. It's a very brief mention, but I was so happy to find that!
I went to that cemetery a couple of weeks ago, but didn't write down the exact location.

Do you know the number of the road the cemetery is on? Is it a state road or a county road.

RE: Spot F Gravely
Do you mean the Gravely-Dyer info? Yes, I would like it. I'm not sure how to navigate Find-a-Grave. Will see how to send private messages to discuss Spots.

Hi, Thanks for putting the Dyer information on Find a Grave. I was wondering how you know that Spotswood is buried there. I have been looking and looking for him. I feel sure that he would have had a marker. I have a newspaper notice that he died in April 1892. I'm also interested in Lewis Gravely. Spotswood's daughter Elsie is my great grandmother. Thank you so much.

Sorry for the double post here, but digging deeper it seems that Frances' information could be 6Jun1740-6Apr1806. For reference please see Memorial# 60405343.

I believe this memorial, for Frances Ramsey, could well be the daughter of William Young (1710-1785)and Elizabeth (Stegale or Stegall) Young(1739-1821). I have traced my family history back to this generation and location geographically. If it is the same woman, her DOB was 26 APR 1740and DOD I have is 20 APR 1790.

Also, the main correction: Pinckard/Drewery should be Pinckard/Drewry. Please correct. This is the reason I have not been able to locate it before now. Thanks so much!

Hello Rebecca, So nice to hear from you! If you can tell me if the cemetery is in better repair than it was several years ago when my mother was there, it would be great. I was actually in Roanoke last week and went by my Uncle Carleton's home which is now owned by and 3rd or 4th cousin. Yes, if you could take pictures of the remaining graves in the cemetery it would be wonderful. If the stones are damaged, we can probably tell you who most are. My great grandmother Julia (Pinckard) and great grandfather Samuel Drewry as I have stated are buried there along with children Clyde and Louise and their spouses. We do no know how exactly the Pinckard/Drewry land and homeplace which was a rental and in disrepair a number of years ago, ever came to be in the ownership or trust of Ferrum College. My mother does not seem to remember. I have been doing some research this week and have found very little about the Pinckards outside of some census about Julia's siblings and parents. Any information you could send me would be wonderful! My email address is Thanks for your offer.
