Need help with Tombstone Reading
Posted by: Pat Brannen (ID *****4411) Date: February 07, 2012 at 13:04:24
  of 1883

Would someone go to the Greenhill Cemetery in Danville, Section W36 and tell me the first name on the large marker with a cross on top. The VA-NC Piedmont Genealogical Society did a reading in 1988 and state it says Blanche Crew, maiden name Lacy. However, if it is dim could it possibly be Ann E. Crew, maiden name Lacy? With some of the fancy lettering of years gone by I'm hoping the Bl in Blanche could be a fancy A and the rest of the word would be nne or nn. Section W36 is mostly Patton/Irvin. I believe Ann E. Crew was Kate Irvin's grandmother. If this is correct, a brick wall may fall!

Thank you very much for helping.
