For many years I have been searching for more info on my gggrandparents graves James C Atkins 1828-1895 and his wife Eliza Jane J Merchant 1827-1911. When James died his death index did not give info other than he died in Beverley Manor of colic reported by his son Robert. As for Eliza, I have not found much at all. Also, searching for James parents John and Elizabeth McAlister Atkins graves and James' siblings. This is and has been for many many years my dead end. I would love to someday go back to Augusta Co and visit your society. Maybe I can finally find what I am looking for. How would I go about finding these graves?

Can you tell me where I can find a grid map the would correspond to the census taken in Staunton from 1860-1910? Doesn't really help much when the census just Identifies the family number and not the physical address.

I believe their father was John Cunningham of Thorny Branch. my email is email@example.com
