    Well worth the wait! Received mine today and have already found multiple people I have been searching for! Very excited for my next visit this fall.

    Joanne, until I can purchase the book, I would greatly appreciate it if you would let me know if my gg-grandmother Vitula Monroe (Sandridge) Davidson’s grave is included in Volume IV (as was the plan). She is buried in the front yard of the home known as Cherry Hill on the road between Buckingham and Cumberland Co., VA. Her tombstone had been broken-off and moved (it was last seen resting against a tree trunk in the front yard). My brother and I want to call the current owner and see when it is convenient for us to visit the gravesite (which I understand is our right under state law). The landowner once claimed that they had been told by the previous owner that the body had been moved to another location….but we know from a long-time neighbor that this is simply not correct. Thanks!

      Bill, I won’t have my copy immediately and am sending you a suggestion by email.

    Our friend, Roy Shores, in Buckingham County helped to make this New Book come true also. He has helped so many folks – who were searching for “Lost Graves” of their families and friends. With the cooler weather coming in – and weeds and vines being killed – hope more folks in that area will get together and unite to find more forgotten graves and have them recorded. Thank you again for all that you do for giving us Buckingham County History.

      Patt, Thanks for adding Roy Shores’ name to the list of those in Buckingham County who are knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to finding lost graves and who continue to tend graves. Roy took me on an unforgettable walk to see some of my Harris family graves. That was a great day! Joanne
