Re: Loudoun's Black Heritage: Rock Hill Cemetery

As a result of receiving the article on Rock Hill - I contacted Vernon Peterson, the man caring for the cemetery. He has all the records - and he and I talked for several hours. Turns out that he is related by marriage - his grandfather was in my family tree files!

He has since contacted a sister - who is 81 and lives in Newark NJ - I just got off the phone with her after speaking for about an hour - she is sending me her family reunion book/history and I was able to give her the names of her great grandmothers.

She told me the Petersons also have a family cememtery - not located near Rock Hill that Vernon cares for. I will be collecting that information from her - and hope that someone who has Petersons in their Loudoun tree can use the info.

Another chink in the brick walls :)
