help please! Angle Cemetery or Sink Family Cemetery

Hi!
Has anyone heard of either of these cemeteries? Angle Cemetery may be on or near Angle Plantation Road. The Sink Family Cemetery may be the same cemetery or may be located in Burnt Chimney. (I am not from Virginia so neither of these places are familiar to me!)
Does anyone know any volunteers who take digital photos of gravestones?I have looked on a few volunteer sites, but there are none for Franklin County.
Or does anyone have access to a cemetery book for lookups?
Thanks for any help!
Lisa

Hi!
I have a bunch of Sinks and a couple of Martins I am trying to verify the burial place of. These are the people I am looking for: I do not know if these are the actual dates of their births or deaths. I got this info. off of the internet and wanted to know where they were buried to verify the dates.
Samuel Robert (Bob) Martin 1882-1939
Cora Jane/Jean Martin 1884-1958


John Tyree Sink b. 1852-
Mary Elizabeth Sink b.1855

Stephen Sink 1809-1883
Lydia Sink b. 1817

Henry Silas Sink 1782/83 - 1835
Elizabeth "betsy" Sink 1785-1871

Stephen Sink 1759-1835 or 1853
Susan Sink 1752- 1843

Do you know if there is a Franklin County cemetery book?
Thanks!

Lisa,

There is two Franklin Co Cemetery books:

The 1st published in 1986, I don't think you can find a copy of this one.
The 2nd one was published in 1998, and I think you can still get copies of this one from The Franklin Co. Heritage Society, P.O. Box 86, Rocky Mount, Va 24151.

I looked the following up

John Tyree Sink 2-25-1852 9-5-1934
Mary Elizabeth Laymon Sink 8-2-1855 9-05-1943

Stephen Sink 1759 9-1835
Susan Sink 1752 1843

I did not find the othes you were looking for.

Hope this may help.

Ronald

Lisa,
I have a little guide to the Angle cemetary. Mathew Angle sells them and has posts on this site somewhere I think. I also visited the Angle cemetery last year. There are some stones that are unreadable, and probably some missing. The book only showed this Sink that might be who you are looking for:
John T. Sink 1852-1934
No Martins. You can email me at tonikelsay@yahoo.com if you would like more info.

I bought the Franklin County Cemetery Book 3 years ago from the Franklin County Historical Society for $35. You can order one from then and have it shipped.They are working on book 2 and as of June 2013 it is not yet completed.

Peter Angel Cemetery is from intersection 699 and 697, go east 2/10 on 699 to cemetery drive on right side of road, cemetery is 1/10 south of 699.Since 1821.This is what the book says.
John Tyree Sink
Feb. 25, 1852 to Sept 5, 1934
Mary Elizabeth Layman Sink Aug 2, 1855 to Sept 5, 1943
No Stephen Sink by those dates in my book.
No Lydia Sink by those dates in my book.
No Henry Silas.
No Elizabeth Sink.
No Stephen Sink.
No Susan Sink.
No Samuel Robert Martin.
No Cora Martin with those dates.

Have you contacted the Franklin County Historical Society to help you with your Sink Family? They do this on a per hourly basis.

The Roanoke Library on Jefferson Street will get you free obits, just by emailing them.

I hope all this helps. Sorry most were not there.
