Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for over 50 years. It was slow going at first. Then came the computer and things got faster. Then came Find-A-Grave and doors opened. I have accomplished more in the last 10 years than before. After seeing how FAG helped me, I think it is important to record all cemetery records. Not just for the genealogy benefit, but also history. As one said, the headstones will wear, but the on line record will serve the test of time. I'm amazed how fast FAG is growing. I will create a memorial; go to create another and record numbers will have increased 30 or 40 in just a few minutes. I have heard folks say some are just entering memorials for the numbers. I disagree with that because the more we do; the faster the information is available.

First, I would like to thank all contributors that have helped me with my family records. With your help I now have over 16,000 names in my tree. I feel real blessed for your help.

I read somewhere, "If you don't have time to do it right…. When will you have time to do it over?" We are all trying to honor those who came before us, so let's do it right. If you find a mistake in my records, or just want me to add information, please use the "edit" tab so I'll find the record quicker.

I grew up in the Virginia Tidewater area and have since moved west and now in the Tri City, Virginia area. If I can be of help, please let me know.

"Life should not be just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming woo hoo what a ride!" (thanks Suzy)

Thanks for the visit.

RE: Uzzle Family Edits Blandford Cemetery
John Anthony Uzzle, Jr. had two sons: Johnny and Joe. I was good friends with Joe. I will turn 72 in January and have had to slow down also. I do enjoy genealogy and never saw a cemetery that I did not want to explore. Somebody has to take care of the departed. You have done great work. You have created almost three times the memorials that I have. It is a lot of work, but worth it.

RE: Uzzle Family Edits Blandford Cemetery
Lifetime friends. I went to school with Joe Uzzle. We went all the way from 1st grade to graduation at Petersburg High School in 1963. Just helping family add as much to their ancestors legacy as available. Thanks for all your work.

Uzzle Family Edits Blandford Cemetery
Hello Goldeneagle,
Thanks for all the good work you are doing to record burials in cemeteries in your area. I have left some edits for your approval pertaining to Uzzle family members buried in Blandford Cemetery, Petersburg, Virginia. Thanking you in advance for your consideration. All the information that I am adding came from death certificates and marriage records.

Thank You Goldeneagle
Thanks so much for approving the edits for the Perkinson family members buried at Trinity United Methodist Church Cemetery on Church Road. I was very good friends with Arthur Maxey Perkinson and his wife Florence (Clayton) Perkinson. I spent a summer on their farm and did a lot of fishing with Mack (Maxey). I knew all his brothers and heard many stories while we were fishing. All the edits are from viewing death certificates so they are as correct as the records that are available. Again, thank you for your prompt action.

RE: Jennings Pamplin
It isn't a correction. It is additional information I found on him in the Blandford Cemetery Records.

They mentioned that he was originally buried in East Matoaca Cemetery and moved to Blandford Cemetery on 24 May 1973.

Thanks for all you do on Findagrave.
