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.

My Great Grandmother Johnson
Hi Jack,

Someone edited the Find A Grave record of my great grandmother who is buried at Emmanuel Pentecostal Church. They changed her maiden name to Nannie A Mitchell Johnson, that is not correct. Her maiden name was Nannie Alice Richardson, her mother's maiden name was Mitchell. Her father was Henry Richardson. Last time I was at Jones Mitchell Richardson cemetery, it is overgrown with pine trees. Do you know who is supposed to maintain that cemetery?

William Bryon Slaydon
Looking for information regarding William Bryon Slaydon who lived in Callands, Pittsylvania Co., VA and died around 1902. We have been told by someone that his grave is located approximately at 36.793213 -79.595686. He was the father of Asa J Slaydon. This may be a shot in the dark, but do you have any knowledge of the location of the grave?...or know of any living descendants?
Thank you,

Giles-Nuckols Cemetery
Jack,
would you turn over Giles-Nuckols Cemetery mgmt. to me. They are my direct line and there is incorrect info that I would like to correct and add pictures. I had been visiting that cemetery with my grandmother since the 1960's till she passed. Now I still visit twice a year to check on it and cut brush.
Thanks Sue

I was at cemetery today and took a picture of his marker not realizing someone else had claimed the photo request to do. Sorry for the mix up. I have placed the photos on his memorial.

RE: Joel Scott Eanes
Thank you Jack. I wanted to find the cemetery he is buried in. I did see the picture of headstone. I also asked the lady a while back that did post the picture but she does not remember where she got the picture. I thought maybe you had a part in knowing where the cemetery would be. I am sorry for any Inconvenience. I really enjoy and use Find A Grave weekly. Thank you again.
