Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for over 50 years. It was slow going at first. Then came the computer and things got faster. Then came Find-A-Grave and doors opened. I have accomplished more in the last 10 years than before. After seeing how FAG helped me, I think it is important to record all cemetery records. Not just for the genealogy benefit, but also history. As one said, the headstones will wear, but the on line record will serve the test of time. I'm amazed how fast FAG is growing. I will create a memorial; go to create another and record numbers will have increased 30 or 40 in just a few minutes. I have heard folks say some are just entering memorials for the numbers. I disagree with that because the more we do; the faster the information is available.

First, I would like to thank all contributors that have helped me with my family records. With your help I now have over 16,000 names in my tree. I feel real blessed for your help.

I read somewhere, "If you don't have time to do it right…. When will you have time to do it over?" We are all trying to honor those who came before us, so let's do it right. If you find a mistake in my records, or just want me to add information, please use the "edit" tab so I'll find the record quicker.

I grew up in the Virginia Tidewater area and have since moved west and now in the Tri City, Virginia area. If I can be of help, please let me know.

"Life should not be just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming woo hoo what a ride!" (thanks Suzy)

Thanks for the visit.

Hello!

I see you have documented/photographed the above cemetery. Thank You!! Could you please give me an address, and do you know if this was Moody family property? I have been researching my husband's family and found that William Woolridge Moody and Meecah Moody were his GGGGG-Parents on his grandmothers side (William, Samuel, Elnora, Henry, Herman, Louise, Johnny, Jonathan(husband)

Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

You asked if I was related to above. Not me, but my husband is. They both go back to William Harcum & Tabitha Vaughan.

Why did you ask?

Harrells of Suffolk
Jethro Harrell could be a link. The Harrell that dates in the 1700's on my side is John Harrell. Sr.(1761-1838), buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Suffolk. It's hard to tie a lot of people together back in the 1700/1800's before the 1850 Census.

RE: Uzzle Family Edits Blandford Cemetery
John Anthony Uzzle, Jr. had two sons: Johnny and Joe. I was good friends with Joe. I will turn 72 in January and have had to slow down also. I do enjoy genealogy and never saw a cemetery that I did not want to explore. Somebody has to take care of the departed. You have done great work. You have created almost three times the memorials that I have. It is a lot of work, but worth it.

RE: Uzzle Family Edits Blandford Cemetery
Lifetime friends. I went to school with Joe Uzzle. We went all the way from 1st grade to graduation at Petersburg High School in 1963. Just helping family add as much to their ancestors legacy as available. Thanks for all your work.

Hello Goldeneagle,
Thanks for all the good work you are doing to record burials in cemeteries in your area. I have left some edits for your approval pertaining to Uzzle family members buried in Blandford Cemetery, Petersburg, Virginia. Thanking you in advance for your consideration. All the information that I am adding came from death certificates and marriage records.
