I just wanted to congratulate you on your recognition for community service with The Heritage Foundation, Inc.!  It was a great photo, as well.  I know that it is a group effort, but you are a driving force in the organization.  I had stopped by the Buffalo site earlier this Spring, and saw the tremendous amount of work that has been done there.

I also have visited the White Oak Cemetery about 1 to 2 years ago, searching for the gravesite of blues guitarist Floyd Council.  This visit was in an effort to assist Willard McGhee who is making an effort to
recognize Floyd's contribution to the early blues scene.  Willard gave a presentation on the blues music to our Lee County Genealogical and
Historical Society.

Unfortunately, even Mr. Council's son no longer can find his father's gravesite which was never marked, and is hard pressed to give an approximate location.

You are probably already aware of this, but I am enclosing a couple of links that you may find interesting:

I know what a daunting task you have ahead at the White Oak Cemetery, as well.  Good Luck!!
