Bio and Links
Bio Photo Found findagrave when I was doing some internet research on a old family grave site located on our youth camp property. We then took pictures of all the grave sites in the cemetery, added pictures to the memorials that were already created and ended up creating almost a dozen more. From there we decided to document the dozen or so small family cemeteries located in our 20 mile long Appalachian valley that we live in. Enjoying getting to know the history and people of our area.

If I created a memorial for one of your relatives, just let me know and we will transfer. Love answering photo requests, especially in other area cemeteries that haven't been photographed. A

Re: Spelling changes for FAULCONER to FAULKNER
My husband descends from Hugh Morrison FAULCONER/FAULKNER, son of Thomas Morrison Faulconer. My husband's Aunt worked for over 30 years on the genealogy for the FAULKNER side, so a lot of my records are from her. The spelling change may have been just a result from dealing with everyone from the shopkeeper to the census taker who inadvertently changed the spelling. It's interesting that our ancestors prior to Hugh Morrison FAULCONER/FAULKNER all spelled it FAULCONER or even FALCONER. I've seen it spelled all these ways.

RE: Faulconer/Falconer
For future family researchers, could you send me an explanation of the name that I can place on each of the memorials that I have submitted explaining the name changes. I also want to include it on my public and personal family trees. All of George Faulkner's son and daughters spelled it Faulkner in KS. I have a couple of other questions to ask you about this cemetery, but I will send them through your email since they are a bit lengthy. Thank you.

Could you please help me to clarify the Faulconer/Falconer names in this cemetery. You have photographed all the Faulconer headstones. George Faulkner, son of Thomas Faulconer died in Hodgeman County, KS. He left VA after serving in the Mexican War and was sheriff of Richardson County, NE and was leader of a wagon train to Hodgeman County. I have his Pension file and he states in that file that he changed the spelling of his name from Faulconer to Faulkner, and lived the rest of his life with that spelling. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Thomas Morrison FAULCONER
Hi again, here is his memorial: Find A Grave Memorial# 74501597 in the Broce-Kinser Cemetery, Blacksburg, Montgomery County, Virginia. I am very interested to find out what his tombstone epitaph reads. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for taking the photo and posting it for Thomas Morrison FALCONER. Can you make out what his tombstone says other than his name, DOB, & DOD? Thank you so much! This is my husband's ancestor.

RE: Altizer Family Cemetery
My directions to the Altizer Cemetery - at Chestnut Ridge, near Riner, Montgomery Co., Virginia - it is about seven miles SW of Riner. Take Rt. 8 south from Christiansburg, turn right onto Rt. 673, then right onto Rt. 672, then left onto Rt. 695. Continue on that road (it will turn into gravel--or at least it did ten years ago), and the cemetery is on the right at the end of the road. There was a big sign; and it had been newly fenced at that time. I remember the ridge as being so very beautiful, looking over the edge at a white spired church in the distance.

Good job! It's finally stopped raining in the Pacific NW and I think I'll go mow some rows tomorrow.
