|TO BE A VIRGINIAN|
"To be a Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from the Almighty God."

|Mandy G.||RE: John Wesley Spain, Jr., Memorial # 5122780|
And likewise, thank you for informing me about my duplicate of Susie Mangum! I've deleted mine.
I've sent corrections to the creator of the John W. Spain Jr. memorial to fix last name fields - several of his contributions with Jr or Sr had the suffix included with the last name, which is probably also why it didn't show up in a search. I suspect it was probably some kind of spreadsheet upload issue, maybe? Anyway, hopefully he will process those edits soon and all will be well again. :)

|BHS||RE: Thanks for being a Photo Volunteer!|
I don't have a GPS location for the Richardson or any other grave sites. I approach this the old fashioned way but with help from the Oakwood site .... www.historicoakwoodcemetery.org. Searching for a grave on that site will provide the Oakwood location and a location on a map. For Sebastian Richardson, it said he was in section "Linden Lawn H-10" and had the pointer. Sometimes their locations are very accurate, sometimes way off and don't even point to the correct section. Since I found their marker on the first try, it's safe to assume what shows on the Oakwood site must have been a pretty good ballpark location. I haven't seen any plot numbering with the various sections, making the "H-10" pretty useless .... The location shown for Myrtle Pope was accurate, too, which was fortunate - otherwise, searching Oakwood is a beast! Happy Hunting ... Barbara

Good point. I also think the cemetery office has better records. I am trying to annotate the memorials that I research so I don't duplicate effort. When I find the interment card, I add the location to aid in the search.
|Richard Schoening||Silling Family Request|
Your request for the Silling Family markers in Mountain View Cemetery, Charleston, WV has already been done previously. The memorial owner is Kenny Davis. You might want to contact him to request a change. (Memorials 159935599; 159935600; and 159935601).
|Nancy Simmons||Lester B Bradley|
Could this person's name be Leslie instead of Lester? I searched the microfilm of interment records from 1856-1982 and could not find an interment card for this person. But I did find a Leslie Baxter Bailey who died 28 Feb 1951 at the age of 44 in Glen Allen, VA. He is buried in Sec E, Div 87, Lot 11, Grave 1, in the section owned by Mrs. Irma Hord Bradley. If you think this is the same person, you can use this info to update the memorial. If you include the plot location, it will increase the chances of someone locating his tombstone if there is one.

|Elsie Lee||Beatrice C Griffith Powell|
Reference your message to me of Feb. 7th.
If the Fort Lincoln Cemetery office has stated that Mrs. Powell is not buried there, I can only assume someone in her family decided that she should be buried elsewhere. Probably when the obit was published in The Washington Post, this decision had not been made and a change was made. You should contact a member of her family since you have a picture of Ms. Powell. I'm sorry I cannot help you further.
|B Mowen||Photo Request|
Hello, this Winter and Spring I photographed all stones at Crewe Cemetery. You have a photo request for memorial 160120960. In addition to the comment already posted by another member, I wanted to let you know also that there is no stone at Crewe Cemetery for this person. So sorry.
