This verse came from the grave marker of a relative who died in 1900 in Warrenton, MO.

"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" - Matthew 5:8

My FAG activities are primarily with the Mitchell, Waller, Wells, Cox and Wilson families and their relatives.

Here is a poem from the Remembrance Card of David Waller Mitchell, my great grandfather who died on October 12, 1909.

He served as a Private in the Confederate Army from Pittsylvania County, VA and survived Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg in PA.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven.

Sorry, Jack - I read Lillian's date of death wrong. Her stone reads 1946.

May I offer a correction, please? The youngest sister of George Alexander Blair [above]was Lillian Huntley Blair Reynolds. She died in 1939, not 1869, as given.

I did not check her record but will as I am tracking down Blairs, etc.

Hi Jack,

The children found in documentation of Isham Petty and Mary Wells are:

Davis M Petty-wife Sarah Childress
Isham M Petty-wife Mary Evins
Martha Petty Garrett
Mary Petty Childress

There are lots of Ishams. Davis M. had a son Isham plus the father of Isham was also Ishmam and his father was Davis. I found a marriage bond for a Judith signed by Isham but my feeling was this was a sister. Not sure.

If you have other documentation I would love to know.

Thanks, Bonnie

RE: Elendor Elizabeth Slaydon Aaron
Hi Jack, I am not sure where she is buried. I was wondering whether she is also buried at Callands in the Aaron/Slaydon (Slayton) cemetery.

Lawrence Cemetery
Hey Jack,
Where is the Lawrence Cemetery located? It is the one in which you list Arthur and Sarah Fuller.

Henry and Elizabeth Adkins
Hi Jack, I am working on the burial records for Presbyterian Cemetery here in Lynchburg and have a general question I hope you may help answer. I have a memorial set up for Susan Jackson Adkins Nowlin (121024505) born in 1816 and died in 1875. On her marker it lists her parents as Henry and Lucy Adkins. I see the memorials you have for Henry and Elizabeth Adkins in Pittsylvania County which is not terribly far from Lynchburg. Any chance my Susan could be their daughter? And if she is and they are your kin, I will transfer her over to your care.

Thanks for your time,
Darrell Landrum
Lynchburg, Virginia
