1) "Hi, Carol – Thanks for the note from Friday. I guess this is moot since you’ve already changed it. I can’t make any claim that William was buried in Gogginsville but it makes sense. The cemetery is on private property; folks at the Franklin County Historical Society were helpful and phoned the farmer to get permission for us to drive out onto his land to find the cemetery. I don’t know of a complete list of burials on the old farm. --John McCall--

2) Hi, I was wondering if it were possible that the parents Of Moses Greer, William Greer Sr who died 1785 Franklin County VA., Could also be buried in the family cemetery that you have taken Pictures of? Sure looks like there are more than 4 of our family Laid to rest in those trees... Rev. War time...

Seems the cemetery that I thought he had been laid to rest Is not the correct one. Please let me know if it is ok if I change his location to the Greer, Moses Family In Gogginsville Franklin Co VA. Would you know the person who has the Sexton list so We can look up who might be buried there. Thank you so much for all your hard work on Your searching and finding our ancestors.
