I am a retired lawyer in Los Angeles, and I also write and publish information about my ancestral family, the [royal] Stuarts and Stuarts of Virginia.
I am the great-great-granddaughter of J.E.B. Stuart, as well as the g-g-g-granddaughter of Gen. Philip St. George Cooke, and a direct descendant of James Iredell, Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and Congressman, and also of James Iredell II, governor of North Carolina and U.S. Senator.
My search for information fueled my fascination with graves.
Dr. Tazewell Headen While it has been some time since I have dealt with Fr. Tazewell Headen, I have been to the cemetery where he is buried and, if possible, because the cemetery is in private hands and there is a good chance that it will be destroyed if it hasn'[t been already. Anyway, the two individuals that declared him insane were a nephew and a brother-in-law. By the way the brother-on-law was doctor and the husband of Dr Headen's sister Lydia. Personally, I think jealously was the motive.
William A. Stuart Thanks for the good work on the Stuart family! On the page for Wm. A. Stuart, 1826-1892 -- the portly fellow with the blue eyes is actually his son, Henry Carter Stuart. The young WAS below is correct.
This information was taken from the following website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Stewart,_Dauphine_of_France It was labeled as Tomb of Margaret Stewart in the Saint-Laon church. I didn't take the photo only posted it since I had it in the genealogy tree as a marker for her tomb in Saint-Laon Church
Tazewell Headen Sharon, I saw your tribute and short bio for Tazewell Headen. According to the 1860 census, he was an inmate at the Western State Hospital and his condition was listed as "intemperance." Margaret
