Recently, Diuguid Funeral Home located in Lynchburg, VA posted their old burial records online. In researching my GGrandfather, James E. Jennings I found his burial record. He died in Lynchburg on Dec. 11, 1908 and his casket was shipped by train from Lynchburg, Va to Perch (Amherst Co., VA). They indicated on their records that his casket and body was to be met at Perch by C H Beasley & Parr. I was wondering if someone knowledgeable about Amherst County History and/or old business could tell me if C H Beasley & Parr was the name of a funeral home. I know there is currently a Byrum - Parr funeral home located in Nelson County, VA.
