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: photo of Abraham Bennett Harris
Robin,
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

I have a ton of unidentified photos. I'm assuming they are of the following families Utley/Kabrick/Lofgren/Steece. They are in a PDF format and I wanted to email them to you to see if you know any of them. May I have your email address?

Best regards,
Kayce
