Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am posting what I know about the folks who were buried at several family cemeteries that would likely be overlooked otherwise, then linking them to as many descendants as practicable. Each of these cemeteries includes a gravesite of the first family member to reside on the land on which the cemetery was established.

I have been very pleased to learn that many other people are interested in memorializing those who have gone before us, and are eager to share what they know to make each memorial as accurate as possible.

If I can return the favor, please let me know.

I am trying to connect Nancy Isabella Stump to her father Jacob Stump. You have a very detailed history on his memorial. Could you tell me the source of this information? This is for a DAR application.

RE: James Jones (1772-1848)
From Jones families of Va

Richard Jones was the son of Colonel Richard Jones and Sarah Stratton.

Richard Jones was born in 1720. He also was a Militia Colonel, and in 1768 was Sheriff of Amelia County. In 1749 his father conveyed 541 acres to him on the south side of West Creek, adjoining the land he already lived on, joining Reeves line, Daniel Jones, and the Beaver pond of West Creek. He sold 200 acres to Richard Philips in 1767.

His first wife is unknown. His second wife was Elizabeth Batte, and she was the mother of his youngest children.

Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery
Last week, I traveled in search of Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery and found the Church with no cemetery, but I found Clayton Stump Cemetery and Collins Community Cemetery, however, I could not find Mount Pisgah Church Cemetery anywhere. I figure I drove right past the cemetery in Stumptown. Do you have detailed driving directions or GPS Coordinates that you can provide me so I can visit a few of my ancestors. Thank You Kindly.

Thank you for all your work out there! I went to Homestead Manor in Thompsons Station to see about visiting the graves of my 3rd great grandparents, and they didn't even know about a graveyard... said I could come back tomorrow and poke around. Couldn't see it from Google Earth either. You did share that it is at back of property, wondering if you have any other info. Thanks again!
