Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree since April of 2011, and so far have over 10,000 family members. I have learned a lot from doing this and have enjoyed every moment! I have traveled many miles to get photos, information, & many documents! I have met many of my living relatives and would love to bring them all home with me but that is impossible! I embrace each and every one of them as if I had known them my whole life, but have known them, or met SOME only once! My life has been enlightened and enriched by this journey. If you are able to physically do this, please do it before you become disabled. You might be surprised how friendly America really is by doing so. Lots of warm, friendly, helpful, & EXTREMELY nice people out there to help in your journey!

Please remember the rules for using photos that you didn't take yourself. Give credit where credit is due!

Any corrections or transfers will be gladly taken care of.

Emmet Pugh
Thanks for your email. If you go to Mr Pugh's memorial and click on request photo.
Explain you would like a broader view of that section. They have great volunteers in that County.
I am sure you will be able to resolve your questions.

Henry Brown
The Picture and memorial write up for Henry Brown is incorrect.
I think it was meant to be listed on Henry S Brown.
My Dad died 5-11-1986, the other Henry S died 1985.
Thank You
Richard T BROWN,

Oops....Elizabeth Condell
Geesh...I need to sleep more! :) Elizabeth does have a stone, which is embedded in the soil but remarkably in good shape if you know what you are looking at. Her last name is fairly illegible but everything else matches up. I added that photo and sorry about the confusion of my last note.

Thomas (11570037)and Eliz. Condell (11570029)
Please see my previous note to you down below on your page. I added plot photos for Thomas and Elizabeth, whose graves are both unmarked. I was able to get a plot map from the cemetery which enabled me to locate their plots. They are a few plots away from the other Condell graves in Block 10. I added info regarding them on the captions in the photos. Any questions, let me know.

RE: Shirley Chaney
Oh, you're very welcome, Penny. I would rather have been able to help by finding her, but maybe someday someone will if there's a marker for her.

You're welcome. If I should come across it, I will post a photo if no one else has.

Shirley Chaney
The record book at the Childress Cemetery has Shirley Chaney listed, but the location is blank. Her memorial page says she was cremated and location of ashes unknown. I don't know why her name is listed in the cemetery record book if her ashes aren't buried there. Just thought I would let you know that I've checked for a location but no luck.

RE: Flavie
Hi Penny,

Assuming you are referring to Flavie (Phoebe) Bisaillion, 1827-1920, I have no idea where
the picture came from. She was my 3rd grandmother but she died before I was born. Good luck!

Ann(e) UNKNOWN Owsley
Hi Penny,

I looked over my notes to refresh my memory about Ann(e) UNKNOWN Owsley.

I used the Owsley Family Historical Society website for some of the information I entered on her memorial page.

Regarding Anne UNKNOWN Owsley:
The author of the article on this website states, "The notion that she was a member of the West family has been disproven" and then refers to another article posted on the website.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley married Thomas Owsley, II about 1730, when she was about 23 years old.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley probably had only the one child, Thomas Owsley, III, born about 1730/1731. Some suggest Thomas Owsley, III was born about 1731/1732.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley is thought to have died after the birth of Thomas Owsley, III, perhaps in about 1731/1732, or a bit later.

Thomas Owsley, II married widow, Anne Hudson UNKNOWN about 1731/1733. She had a son from her first marriage.

Thomas Owsley, II and Anne Hudson UNKNOWN Owsley had 8 children.

Without actual dates to work with, we may never really know more than we think we know now.

If you have more or better information, please feel free to email me regarding these old Virginia families.

Hope this helps.
Keep diggin'
