Through genealogical research, I located Susan’s death record at the Library of Virginia in early 2015. Although her gravestone is currently broken, it’s wonderful to finally “meet” her in person!
Researching the family of Q. T. Shelton, Sr., Evergreen Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia. Q. T. Shelton, whose gravestone is on the right, is the 11,000th interment in our Evergreen Cemetery database. His family story will be featured in my upcoming book on the cemetery.
