Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family spent many Sunday afternoons visiting our family cemeteries. We would stroll together, sometimes three or four generations at a time, gently touching the stones, whispering greetings, shedding a tear or two, always careful of our steps, sharing memories and legends, passing the stories down from one generation to the next. I always felt like I knew everyone in those cemeteries even though thay had passed away decades, even centuries, before my birth. As children, we would stand before the stone of an ancestor and carefully recite everything we had been told, to the knowing nods or corrections of our elders. I cherish the memories of those Sundays in my adult life. My family no longer lives close enough to each other to stroll through those cemeteries. Find A Grave has allowed me to create virtual family cemeteries that my family can stroll through at any time without the limitations of time or distance. We can't touch the stones or hear the wind in the pines, but we can still whisper a greeting, shed a tear, and remember.
I will gladly edit or transfer any of the memorials that I have submitted that are not in my direct line.

Compton Family Cemetery
Ms. Cann, can you give me the location of the Compton Family Cemetery in Chalk Level, Va.? You photographed John William Compton's grave marker, he is my 2nd great grandfather through my paternal grandmother who was a Compton. My aunt and I will be going to 2 other family cemeteries in that area and would like to stop at this one. I cannot find the location on the web. Thank you.

I had a photo for John Horsley that I have added. His death year, however, is 1887. Thanks for your contributions.

Monroe-Tate Cemetery which says it's a little less than 1/2 mile north of Route 40 on Telegraph Road.

I would ask Mike but his profile says he has unfortunately passed away,

Thanks, Beth

RE: Richard Whitehead, Jr. Memorial #25663813
First of all thank you for all your work in documenting the Whitehead graves in Chatham Burial Park. It was through your efforts that I discovered the grave of my GGG grandfather Richard Whitehead,Jr and the wonderful information and links included on the memorial.
I've got a question I hope you can answer. Is the picture that is posted on the memorial of the actual headstone for Richard Jr. at Chatham?
The reason I ask is that there is an identical gravestone for I believe the same man in the Monroe-Tate cemetery in Greenfield where he is buried with his wife, Elizabeth Caroline Brown, reference Memorial #84433764.
The gravestone dates on the pictures look identical as do the shape and text.
So I'm wondering whether he has two headstones or the picture on the Memorial #25663813 at Chatham is incorrect. If you look at the picture it shows May as the month of his death not April.
Sorry to be so wordy. What do you advise? Beth

Camden Cemetery
We are trying to get the location of the Camden Cemetery. We used to take Ethel Davidson, Ruth Davidson and Lily Davidson up there to a cabin that was near the cemetery. Could you give me the route numbers of how to get to it? Thanks.
