Hey Paula, I wish I could have found his grave too. I tried a bit of online searching and Ancestry searching myself but was stumped except for a link to the Canadian Ancestry site that does have an listing for "Gordon Dalton b. ? d. 1987. If he was in the military and the traveled as extensively as he appeared to, could he have remarried in Canada and be buried there? Just a verrrry long shot, but.....

Thank you so much for the photo of the Watson's marker. Did you notice on the right side of the marker is her husband Benjamin Franklin Watson who is buried there with her. Perhaps you could add this to his memorial as well.
Thanks again.

Thank you for your info. I will try and email you shortly. I am related to Heath by my grandfather. The information that i have been able to find on him has been limited. I had found Flurnoy who I think is in the Monta Vista Gardens hear in Galax but was unsure if they had any other children. I am looking for Heaths father at present. I have found a little bit of info but not much. Thank you.

I am trying to locate information On Julia as to when she married and divorced Heath Wilmouth and how many kids they had. I am related to him by my grandfather. I have been unsuccessful in finding any info on there lives. I think I had found that they had a son Flurnoy? But Several other of his children we listed as step children by his next wife. Do you happen to have any other info on this or know anyone who dose? Any help would be great. Thanks.

William Porter
I am curious if there was any evidence of a headstone or if you were going by other documentation on the burial place for William Porter (1809-1883) in the Old Bethel Church Cemetery in Grayson County, Va? Thanks very much!

Rakes Family
Hi Paula

Do you have an Elizabeth Rakes (1756-1853) who married James Cannaday (1750-1817) in your family line? They are my 4th great grandparents. I am interested in Elizabeth's mother's name. Most people agreed that the mother's first name was Nancy. I've seen her last name as DeBurges or Hubbard, do you have any ideas? I would appreciate any help you can give me. They lived in Franklin County, VA. I have her sibling's names: Anna, Charles, Constant, Dorcus, Rhonda, Sarah, Nancy, Jane, Mary, & Samuel Jackson.

Thank you, Karen
