Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family histories for the past 25 years, and have published my "Hammersley's of Lynchburg, Virginia" manuscript in 2006, the 2nd edition will be by Dec 2010. Other family lines include: Sankey, Hamlett, Holt, Sublett, Puckett, Smoot, McManus, McCauley & Knight from my own lines. Additionally through family marriages: Murray, Ehlenburg, Swayze, Day, Shaw, Lepard, Duplante, Hollingshead, Schnell, Gadladge, Andrews, Griffin and other associated families.

I live in SE Michigan close to Toledo, and have access to both Ohio & Michigan records, both online and through county libraries. I have some allied lines from Michigan, mainly Day, Draper, Swayze, Murray and others, and have gathered alot of data on those families. I'm an avid photographer and digitally reproduced antique photos and restore damagad photos. I enjoy traveling to the places my ancestors lived, worked and died and learning as much about them as I can.

Note: Those of us who volunteer our TIME, expense & effort do so VOLUNTARILY, if you want a correction made, ask nicely, otherwise your request will be ignored. I do not respond to snarky, rude commentary... corrections will be made when time permits, not when you demand - this service is run by volunteers, not paid professionals!

If you want a transfer, include your contributor # or the memorial will not be transferred. Much of the entries made are transcribed from PUBLISHED material, not farcical fiction - those of us who spend OUR time to transcribe & upload records are not responsible for errors done by volunteers in the field, or historical society publishers.

If a duplication is found, I will only delete the duplication WITHOUT photos, otherwise what is the point - volunteers take the time to visit those cemeteries and take those photos, I will not diminish their work, effort & time by undoing what some have graciously shared with the public.

re "Ann Alcan Henry," wife of Fayette Henry
FYI, just needed to correct a glitch in her maiden name. The correct name is Elcan, from the Elcans of Buckingham County, VA. Many thanks for all your work on the site! :)

Earnest Hammersley
Re: #50409672. Earnest married Josephine Burnett, my grandfather Frank Jackson's sister. Beulah Baptist Church lists Earnest's middle name as Victor. Is it Vaughn or Victor? I would like to enter it correctly in my Book on the Burnett family. Thank you.

Holt Family of Virginia
Dear Alexandra,

I believe we are relatives through the Holt Family and probably other family lines as well.

If you don't already have one there is a Holt
Family CD that Marvin Berkley put together.
My Great Grandfather is Willis McGruder Holt.
He had my Grandmother, Bessie Elizabeth Holt and she married Clarence Fisher Garfield Childress.
If you don't have a copy I will share it with you. From reading your profile on Find A Grave you have been a busy lady. I will be glad to share what I have. There are pictures on my
Childress Family Tree if you would like to see them.

Rumble Fuller
I saw that you had set up the page for Rumble Fuller. I am looking for information for his wife Susan. I am a descendant and if you could help me, I would appreciate it. Or if someone placed the request that might be a descendant.

Steven Hammersley
I went out to Fort Hill Cemetery here in Lynchburg yesterday to try and get a photo for you. Unfortunately, his grave is not marked. There is a lady named Thelma Witt in the grave beside his. I took photos of her grave and the unmarked one that is his. If you would like those photos, let me know and I will post them.

Best regards,
Darrell Landrum
