I am interested in a color print of the headstone for Achilles Morgan buried in Bock Cemetery.
I will be meeting with P J Smith an 7/13 and will be in Danville that morning. I would be happy to purchase said picture if you have it available.

Is there a listing of all the people who are buried in Bock cemetery somewhere. Some of the stones are not legible and I have Hensley family members who I would like to find.

I am from the Hensley lineage and was raised near Bock Cemetery. My grandfather was James Oliver Hensley. His father (Oliver Dinsmore Hensley) and grandfather (George Dinsmore Hensley) are buried there. James is buried in Sandusky Cemetery, not far from Bock. The really interesting one, James' great, great grandfather, and my great, great, great, great grandfather, Achilles Morgan is buried at Bock. Achilles lineage takes us all the way back through the post Revolutionary War period and then all the way back to Glamorganshire, Wales, to Gloucestershire, England, to Monmouthshire, Wales to Tredegar, Monmouth, England, to Carmarthanshire, Wales, to a pre-Columbus date! I have that lineage if you would like to see it.
