Genealogy Roundup, October 28

Some people visit cemeteries on Halloween. This man visits them all year to honor the dead he’s never met. – Quite a read about a topic that’s fairly mundane to most genealogists. Simultaneously sweet and disturbing.

A Virginia state senator found headstones on his property. It brought to light a historic injustice in D.C. – Back in 2009, I traced Philip Reed, the once enslaved man who placed the Freedom statue on top of the Capitol (see link in first comment to learn about how he was disinterred and reburied twice 😞). Now there’s a chance his tombstone could be found.
