YOU GUYS WILL NEVER BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME TODAY!!!
I had contacted several mortuaries prior to now, and none had the burial information for these folks I am looking for, but found that there was a cemetary in Petersburg Va, called Dinwiddie Memorial. I had others but not this one so I called, and my goodness guess what happened. EVERYTHING WAS THERE!!! The young lady that answered the telephone told me to hold on while she located everything she could. When she came back she had Obituaries, programs, names addresses,etc...
I almost wrecked the car while she was reading. My grandmotherk, Vance Wells (who is the person we started looking for information on in the beginning) was there, along with her brother, as well as her daugher. The daughter was buried there with her married name, which I had never known either. On and on. I am going to go through this, call the sisters husband and get what ever I can.
I also found out that my mom has 2 brothers she never knew about either, as well. oh, and By the way,
while I was on the telephone receiving this exciting news, my manager from work was on the other line "calling to let me know the job I had been working at for nearly ten years, I was being layed off from, as of today, so don't bother going in".
What a day. I will get back here shortly as soon as I sort through these documents the cemetary faxed me. I even have pictures on the programs. They sort of look like my mom!
I love you guys.
