Outside of Virginia


As time permits, I'm researching cemeteries in Albemarle County, Charlottesville, Nelson County, Orange County, Greene County, Augusta County, Madison County, and Amherst County, VA, (and other areas) trying to find locations for a bunch that are historically known, but not currently documented.  Those are the closest areas to me, but I do take day trips outside of these areas.

Find A Grave - I add photographs and create new memorials for every cemetery I film. I love to visit cemeteries and film/document them whenever I can.  I love a big, sprawling cemetery, but I'm just as interested, perhaps even more so, in the "forgotten" ones that are deep in the woods or untended to for many years.

I've filmed/documented numerous complete large cemeteries , including Maplewood, Oakwood, and Riverview Cemeteries in Charlottesville, VA, and Monticello Memorial Park (aka Monticello Memory Gardens) in Albemarle County, VA.

I'm working on researching what I had been calling the Cemetery Ridge Graveyard (before research confirmed what this graveyard was) in Charlottesville, Virginia. I have confirmed this cemetery to be the former Maury Family Cemetery, and research states that the graves were moved to  Grace Episcopal Church Cemetery in Cismont, VA (possibly moved in 1988; dedication at Grace was Saturday, June 16, 1990). More information, including photos and videos located here.

Special thanks to Rhonda Jackson (and her family), who has introduced me to numerous forgotten cemeteries in New Canton, Virginia. I can't wait to meet up again to further explore!

Upcoming projects:

Continue to locate, clean, and document "forgotten" cemeteries, and always looking for an interesting story or puzzle to try to piece together and document.


I film cemeteries, graveyards, church yards, nature, and other places I find interesting. Cemeteries are beautiful, peaceful places to reflect and I want to help preserve the the way they looked at a certain time. I contribute regularly to Find A Grave and I've been thanked numerous times by relatives and researchers for documenting places they may not be able to visit. I mean no disrespect and sometimes spend time tidying up places that don't necessarily receive it on a regular basis.
