Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Falls Church, VA. After 4 years of college in West Virginia and 3 years in the Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, I landed in Hampton, VA, serving the remainder of my enlistment at Langley AFB here.

I liked Hampton so much that I decided to stay, and it's been WAY more years than I realized! I've been contacted by others doing genealogy on my Kabrich family, and recently I've been finding out more about my maternal family tree, the Lawrences and Pikes. I am absolutely fascinated with the way family history becomes intertwined with history I've studied in books - sometimes it gives me chills just thinking about it!

My deceased family is spread far and wide, from Southwestern VA to Connecticut (and maybe others I don't know about yet), so I am happy to have this place to "visit" them, even those I've never met! Searching for my family roots and discovering photographs of relatives (I've known) and ancestors (I've not known) helps me feel a sense of connection to something larger than myself.

I appreciate those who have added my family members to this site, and I would love to pay it forward with any requests in or near Hampton, VA. So please, feel free to ask!

Should I add any of YOUR family's grave sites, please feel free to request a transfer of "ownership."

RE: Edward S Steeves #150144038
Thanks for spotting that. This was a mistake on my part. I copied the death date of his first listed wife. It's all fixed now.

Lorenzo Dow Libby family tree
I wanted to let you know that Lorenzo Libby's sister was my great, great grandmother. You can find her memorial in find a grave. Sarah Story Briggs, under Delware county, IA. Forestville cemetery. We think that Lorenzo's and Sarah's parents are buried at Forestville cemetery or in that locality, as they were living close by at their death. I saw that Lorenzo was in your family tree.

I was wondering if you had any info on his brother Cyrus' family. Cyrus died around 1860 in IA. He was supposedly married to an Elmira Banester and they had a daughter Louisa Libby King. That's really all I know about them.

RE: Henry Carlton Ahalt Mem #32461561
Hi Robin! It is great to hear from someone who knows the family. Henry Carlton Ahalt is my 2nd Great Uncle on my mother's side of the family. My mother is Paula Ruffner (now Buchanan), her mother is Patricia Kelican (formerly Ahalt), and her father was Henry's brother, Edgar Richard Ahalt. I don't know much about their son, Carlton, but I can ask my grandmother. I can also ask her about Nellie. Feel free to email me at What is VPI? I know Henry was in the military, and is buried in Arlington Cemetery with Nellie. I visited their grave last Christmas while helping to lay wreaths for Wreaths Across America. I would love to see any pictures you may have of Nellie or any of their children. I have one other picture of Carlton with his brother Edgar when they were really little that I am happy to share too. Just shoot me an email!

RE: photo of Abraham Bennett Harris
Thanks so much for your reply.

Actually, I believe it was on your cousin's behalf that I was writing. Bill Harris is a good friend of mine - we used to work together before he retired and moved south.

When Bill posted the picture, several of us were curious about the objects around Abraham's neck.
I, being a mechanical engineer and gadget freak, was determined to figure out the mystery - and so began the adventure.
I grew up on a farm, so I immediately thoughthorse collar, BUT I dismissed that because of the small size. I continued searching, including my email to you. Then, another "investigator," Jennifer Berkley-Hammon discovered the information that not only was it a prototype horse collar (prototypes are often smaller in scale to the actual), but that Abraham had been awarded a patent for it!!!

What a great adventure this was!!!

Do you know anything about this photo?
I'm particularly interested in the tool/fixture hanging around his neck. Any info you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks!

W W Buck and Stella Harris Buck
Hello, I have recently acquired at auction a picture of a man taken at a Baltimore MD photo studio, with a inscription on the back that reads
"Yours Truly, W W Buck Rural Retreat, Wythe County Va." This photo was probably taken at the time of his medical school graduation in 1885.

If you are interested in this very free photo, please let me know. Kevin
