Bio and Links
I was born and raised in the Suburbs just outside of Washington, D. C. in Hyattsville, Maryland. But have since moved to Winston Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina, USA. My Ancestors are the Pioneers who settled in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. Unsure at this time as to which country they came from but England is in the top of the running.
My Genealogy research started with my Aunt Demsie (Ashby) Wells giving my parents a copy of the Wells Family Tree. It included about 300+ family members. And then this year 2011 we had one of the first Wells Family Reunion's that I can remember, thanks mainly to a tornado striking the Old Wells Homeplace in De Witt, Dinwiddie County, Virginia. Due to the age and condition of the home it was scheduled for demolition and between the efforts of Barbara Mitchell who holds ownership to the house and land it sits on and Mamie (Shutt) Burton who owns the remainder of the Wells Plantation property they organized the reunion prior to demolition. So that family members had a chance to see the home that several generations had grown up in. The property also includes the Wells Cemetery that is said to have a number of family members buried in unmarked graves. I have since be able to add several more members to over 2,600 members and counting, thanks to the help of other family members such as my wife Jennifer (Green) Wells, Carolyn (Lee) Lockhart, Edith and Brenda Zimmerman, Alma Vernelle (Snider) Greene and Katie Wells.
My mother's side of the family are from the Cumberland, Alegany County, Maryland area.

Walter Lee Crews #87979380
Hi Charles,

Ive been trying to dig up all of the children of Ephraim and Sarah Seats Crews, and I came across the entry to have for a Walter Lee Crews who is buried in Advance, NC at the Methodist Church along with some of his siblings.

I also had an entry for the same person, except I had his name as William Lee Crews. I deleted mine when I saw that you had one----but then in the meantime I have come across census records and other newspaper articles that seem to indicate that his name was actually William Lee Crews rather than Walter. And that his nickname was Will.

So--Iḿ going to send you a request that you change his first name to William. (These are some of my relatives).

Thank you,

Barbara Crews Burt in NC

Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!

Ernest Wells Photo Request
Greetings... I see you are the person requesting the picture of Ernest's grave. I would be happy to take the picture but you need to contact the Hillside Cemetery office, explain how you are related to Ernest and ask them to tell you the location of the grave. They have some new, or somewhat new policy that if a person requests the location of a grave they need to either be related or someone who is related needs to give the office permission to give that information to the person requesting. If you get the plot and grave number info you can email me at and I would be happy to take the picture.

I have found two stones at the cemetery that I am adding the pic for. Unfortunately the last names were misspelled and have Carter instead of Carder. I am positive these are the correct stones from checking death certificates. All the dates match on James and Wife. I know you will receive a message that your request has been taken care of, just didn't want you to think it was a mistake.

Hare Forest Cemetery, Bowling Green, VA
I noticed you photographed a grave at Hare Forest Cemetery, near Bowling Green, Virginia, in Caroline County.
I cannot find that cemetery on google maps or mapquest and wonder if you remember where it is in relation to Bowling Green?
There are several more requests for photos that I would like to fill if I can.

RE: Crestview Cemetery
That's a switch. The last I was there to take a photo the lady threatened to have me charged with trespassing. She also did the same to the other local photographer who works the Roanoke Rapids area. I will give it another shot and see if your info pans out.

May Dell
No one ever called her Edwin but I assume that was her legal name since they had it put on her tombstone. You have "She may have been called Mae Dell" and that is not correct. She was called May Delle. No maybe.

(Information provided by May Delle's parents and siblings)

Thanks so much for correcting this. It's hard to understand how a little girl who died so long ago should mean so much to her family, but she is still loved and missed. We want her information to be correct, because her little tombstone and a couple of pictures are all that is left to remember her by.
