Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a student of my maternal grandmother, the family historian before anyone considered themselves such, I have listened to oral history of my ancestors for many generations.

Oral history about the lives of those who settled in the mountains of Virginia in the late 1700's, a place I still hold very dear to my heart. Oral history about my ancestors who fought in the War Between the States, losing children as babies or as young adults with "TB" and surviving during the Great Depression.

Oral history that as child left me wanting to know the little ones who were in heaven before they knew how good a warm tomato, fresh from the garden, on 'light bread' with mayonaise tasted as we kids had dinner at the picnic table with iced tea.

Kathy, Thank you for all of the kind replies you sent me and I understand. We had a newly created memorial section made in Ettrick Cemetery for the Soldiers of the Confederacy whose graves were unknown exactly. this was by the Sons of Confederate Veterans with full color guard, taps, service by the President of the group, and so on. A new flagpole and Confederate flag was also presented and raised. Very touching and each soldier had a memorial grave stone. It's beautiful and I thought the pictures would give such a nice presentation of the cemetery since there are over 100+ Confederate soldiers and one Union soldier buried there, but I did submit them and no word one way or the other ever was sent to me back. Thanks so much Kathy for trying. God bless, Sue (SM)

Kathy, First, thank you for offing to remove your photo. It is already on the memorials set up n Ettrick, it would just be the newer ones. David Wrght also had me try to post one of a map/diagram inside the cemetery to make it easier for family or friends to find their grave sites but that didn't post on there either . dont' see anywhere to contact Find A Grave about this but the photos are fabulous. any help is appreciated but not sure why they are controlling YOUR photos! I have posted one of the photos on one of my Civil WAR memorials on here if you want to see it. GO to Ettrick Cemetery,then put the initials R.W.W.(think that's right going by my memory) THERE is no full name for him in the cemetery records. I submitted it MOnday and still not on there . THANK YOU. Sue

Kathie, We recently attemped to add a couple of updated photos to the Ettrick (VA) Cemetery page but there are too many previous photos currently on there. the new photos are of the recently established CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS MEMORIAL SQUARE including the Color Guard Sons of Confederate Veterans Dedication service done November 1, 2014 at the cemetery. The photo I am attempting to add shows the new square, the color guard with their gun volley and taps, the new flag pole with the Confederate Flag and the new grave stones of approx. 100 Confederate soldiers buried there. I have about 3 different ones to add. Would you consider removing any you have posted so we can accomplish this for the cemetery and those buried there? This is being sponsored by David Wright, Sons of Confederate Soldiers through me and my Find A Grave acct. #47765800 We all would very much appreciate it! thank you! Sue (SM)

RE: Holt - Richards Cemetery
GPS Coordinates: Latitude: 37.11267, Longitude: -80.09773
If you go to the Holt Richards, cemetery that I have posted, you will find a map.
NO you can NOT see any thing from the road. It is up on a large ridge,across a small field, then cross a creek, then a steep ridge. about a 300 yard walk.climb to the top of the ridge all wooded, NO markings, just a few tomb stones. I would not try to go there this time of year, to many snakes and ticks.

RE: Holt - Richards Cemetery
Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is an old cemetery on rt 602 from Bent Mt. about 1.5 miles. Located in the woods up on a hill. If coming from top of the Mt. abt. 1.5 miles on the left, small grasses field, then cross a creek, then walk up on top of the ridge.
Only 6 graves found with markers, all others, just stones. , There are Holts that live near by they should be able to explain how to get there.
I have been there, will post a GPS reading when I get a changes to go there again.

You added a picture to the wrong person.#54851152. There is another Fleming H Poff in the same cemetery that your picture will match. Hope this helps...have a blessed day.
