This blog shares the discoveries I make while on the journey to find my family genealogy. I am researching the following surnames on my father's side Blades, Davis, Fernald, Mullins, Nichols, Nickersons, and Ross from Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.
From my mother's side Belcher, Brammer, Hall, Handy, Justice, Midkiff, Nelson all are from mostly Patrick County, Virginia and some from North Carolina.
On Sundya, May 15, 1955, my grandfather, D. Lee Handy, passed away at a local hospital near his home in Roanoke, Virginia. Originally from Meadows of Dan, Virginia, D. Lee and his wife, Callie moved to Roanoke about 1950.
Funeral services were held a few days later at Oakey's. Interment followed at Evergreen Burial Park in Roanoke, Virginia.
