Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family "forest" for a year now. I don't consider myself to be experienced in genealogy whatsoever; I still consider myself to be a "newbie". I don't think I'll ever fully know what I'm exactly doing.

My family lines consist of Holmes' and Smiths' from Smyth County, Virginia; Foster's and Hodge's from Pulaski County, Virginia; and Mooney's (also Moony) and Wall's from Carroll and Grayson County (also Wythe County), Virginia. Although as I typed all of that, I realize that in my research, I've found that my family is actually from many more locales than just those that I listed.

I'm also researching my husbands' family, the Davis' & Farmer's from Pulaski County, Virginia, and the Burton's and O'Dell's from Pulaski County, Virginia.

So I guess that's about it... So if I think of anything else, I'll add it...

RE: Ocie Mae East Young
You are welcome. She was my husband's second cousin so I research the East's quite a bit.

Take Care,

Jane Bryson In Larew Cemetery Dublin, Pulaski Co. VA
Just had a question as to the dates shown for Jane Bryson given in the memorial for her. For Birth it's showing March 9, 1805, could it be March 9, 1791? This site shows the 1791 date
And she is showing up on the 1850 census as 60 and on the 1860 census at 69 which would indicate a 1790 or 1791 time frame.

Also the rootsweb site is showing a different death date. It shows Feb 29 1869, which isn't correct as 1869 wasn't a leap year. You have July 25 1867 which is the same date as given for James Bryson on this list for Larew Cemetery.

Thanks for any help you can give me on getting the Bryson dates.

Per your photo request John Barnette
I have located the gravestone for John (your request Oct 2010)and it is next to his parents. It is hand-chisled and extremely difficult to read. I have requested a marker transcription for it to be added to the memorial. It is to the best of my ability to read. While attending a funeral there this week, I ran into the caretaker. I told him who this was and after determing the grave belonged to someone who died in 1972 (it looks much older) he realized he knew John. They went to church together. He remembers him as being the only person he knew who sang the song "Here Comes the Black Train" or something like that. Since he knew John he said he would try to make the stone more readable. I probably won't get back there until spring- I could also try tracing it.

RE: Glendy Family
I don't think that is the correct Mary Glendy, this one was born in 1791 in Ireland and died in Augusta County in 1853. There is a page for her, it says she was about 62. Find A Grave Memorial# 62315629

She was the daughter of the William Glendy I requested, he died, I think, in 1826. I assume since he lived there his grave is in the same place, but it may be lost to time, or unable to be read.

William Glendy
Birth 1767 in Ulster, Ireland
Death Living
Death 15 Aug 1826 in Augusta, Virginia, United States

Mary Glendy
Birth 1791 in Ireland
Death Living
Death 25 Nov 1853 in Newbern, Pulaski, Virginia, United States

She was by his first wife, who died when they were still in Ireland.

The second wife is Ann/ Anna Robinson Glendy who you so kindly posted a picture of her grave earlier.

There were 6 brothers, 2 left and moved to central Missouri, and I took the pictures of their graves, and I have made pages for them.

I found one brother in Augusta County with a page, but I am still trying to find pictures of the other 3 brothers, and the half sister Mary who died in 1853.

John Glendy
1800 1857
David Glendy
1802 1880
Samuel Glendy (have grave picture)
1804 1879
Thomas Marshal Glendy (have grave picture)
1806 1884
William Glendy
1807 1890
Robert James Glendy (have grave picture)
1814 1889

Thanks again so much!!

Can you tell me, I am trying to plan a trip out there to try to research more abou the Glendy and Shields families. How far is Augusta County, approximaetly, from the DC area? I usually fly in to Dulles when I go to DC. Also, do you happen to know anything at all about a historical society/ genealolgy society in Augusta County. Some places it is the library, others I have found have a stand alone historical society.

Thanks again SO much for ALL of your help!!

Lisa :-)
