Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm researching the Rev David Rice line in VA, KY and TN; and the Philip Walker line in MA-RI-CT-NY-WI. If you have, or need, information about these families, please contact me.

I'm a cantor, organist and conductor, and I enjoy photographing old gravestones.

Find-a-Grave offers an opportunity to share information on an unprecedented scale. Much like Google's project to digitize every book ever published, this site aspires to document the lives of everyone who has gone before us! How cool would THAT be?

I see that you posted a photograph of the entrance to this graveyard in Page County, Virginia. I have been trying to locate it and have been unable to. Can you help with directions? Thank you!

RE: George Washington Clements, Find A Grave Memorial # 41053629 and 2nd wife Sarah Turner (Cook) Clements, Find A Grave Memorial # 41053649, added by you on 24 Aug 2009; both buried Mountain View (Clement) Cemetery, Penhook, Franklin Co, VA.

I am writing to ask if you might have taken a photo of the joint headstone of George & Sarah Clement? You have posted Sarah's dates of birth & death and the inscription on the headstone, same for George, so I am hopeful you have a photo, too, that you haven't uploaded to their Memorial pages on Find a Grave.

I am working on a NSDAR (Daughters of the American Revolution)and am trying to find proof of Sarah's dates & places of birth & death. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Philip Walker line

2 of Pliny's son's, Wilbur and George, preceded the rest of Pliny's family coming to Hanford around 1907. George Lyle Walker and Rosa Elizabeth Westfall were my grandparents.
My father, raised in Hanford, was one of their sons, Robert G Walker. My dad met and married my mother, Gladys Mahannah, in Oakland Ca. after returning from WWII. They settled on some land in Atwater CA, that was owned by his oldest brother, George Wesley Walker, in 1946. Dad and mom farmed there until their deaths in 2000 and 2003. My brother currently farms almonds there. I live 2 miles away. Hanford is about 1 1/2 hours south and we have numerous cousins there still.

My grandfather George Lyle, great-grandfather, Pliny and great-great grandfather Dennis Sobieski Walker are all buried in the Hanford Cemetery.

How much detail do you have on the Walker line? I'd like to share info with you if we can.

Philip Walker line
Hi My name is Gary Walker and a descendent of Philip Walker. I live in California and have just gotten into the Walker family line over the last few years. I plan a trip this next August (2017) to follow the roots of my family back from CA to Kansas and Wisconsin.

Memorial # 39969724 Sent a brief bio. re: his patriotic service during the American Revolution. There are tentative plans to conduct a memorial service and a grave marking at his graveside by the local Roanoke area Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR)and Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). We are in a very early planning stage and submitting the request for the Virginia State SAR Society's approval to conduct the grave marking has not been implemented to date.

Jennie Leyburn Cocke
Hi, just wanted to let you know I set up memorial for Jennie Cocke, wife of Alonzo Rice Cocke. I saw you were maintaining his memorial if you would like me to transfer hers to you I will be glad to.
I have been putting grave locations on Find A Grave for Riverview Cemetery here in Waynesboro VA and the
old records I am using shows "Burial" unknown
for a tremendous amount of gravesites. Some I have been able to identify some not. Jennies was
one I did locate. The cemetery records werent kept the best back then. The inscription is on the side of the monument and is very faint, I
really had trouble reading it and until I uploaded it and then it made perfect sense.
Hope this is of help.
Regards - Beth Brady
