Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for over 45 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: Mary Ella Savage Harrell
Hi! Let me do some studying on this and get back to you. I don't see what you're looking for off-hand, in my database. Also I have a cousin who is a Harrell, and maybe he knows something; I'll check.

Thanks! Doy

RE: Blankenship, Rafferty
Thanks so much for making the correction to the name and I will go ahead and contact the other person. It is not uncommon the find duplicate memorials and I find that most commonly people don't check to be sure there is not already one existing before they add their own information. Problem was with this one is that, other than the name, there is no information.

Thanks so much for keeping me posted.

RE: Anna Hoy Mann
Not necessary. I was just so excited to find it. This morning I have been reviewing some other information I was given about the HOY family. Apparently Anna Hoy parents, Patrick Henry Hoy and Martha Ann Wilson Hoy, are both buried in Richmond. I'm going to see what I can find there. Maybe in Hollywood Cemetery?

Anna Hoy Mann
I only started researching family history this past year. I was thrilled to find this recent posting showing Anna Hoy Mann's tombstone. She would have been my great grandmother. Her daughter, Elnora Mann, was my gradmother.
