I noticed you have listed the Warden Cemetery, I am working on my Harrah family and see by the death certificate that he is buried in Warden but the obit says Lanark, are there graves at Warden you have not listed or stones you can't read or graves not marked, not sure if I should list here. Can't find a Lanark.
Thank you

Sunset Memorial Park

You said on his memorial page that he has two gravestones. Where is his second one? Can you post photos of the two gravestones? Do you have any idea why there could be two stones? That would be an interesting story as to why or how that happened.

Thank you for all you do and your time.

Elder James "Jerusalem Jim" Lilly
Hello fellow genealogy enthusiast!

I'd LOVE to swap/share info with you :)

As excited as I am to talk to you, I'm actually contacting you about an edit. I read the info in your profile about your research but wanted to let you know that Elder James William "Jerusalem Jim" Lilly isn't buried at Sunset Memorial Park in Beckley, WV. (

He's actually in Camp Creek on a mountainside on Bluestone River (here's the coordinates 37.490124,-81.052872) I just updated the photo of his tombstone ( He is my great-great-grandfather and he along with about 2 dozen other Lilly/Cox family members are buried on what used to be his daughter's farm (my grandfather's mother's farm). I have tons of pics of the Ol' Homeplace (what the family has always called it) along with pics of many of the graves, though many are worn beyond reading and some are just headstones. My grandfather buried several of his brothers out there along with other relatives. I created a Facebook page for the family cemetery too ( It's amazing to hike into the woods and suddenly be surrounded by graves. It was hard times indeed in coal country during the depression with the man of the house in WV State Penitentiary.

Hope to hear from you soon, I'd love to swap!

I see that you posted a marriage for him. Do you know if his wife is also buried there? It's a distant cousin but trying to locate family for those who are looking later.
Thanks for any help.

This is my GG Grandfather my Uncle sent me a photo of him.
Blanche Chambers, Whitney, Cavault was my Great Grandmother we use to visit her in her Ohio home in the 50's.
Her daughter Irene Chambers (adopted by Minnie M Licklider Blanche's sister was my grandmother. This was all confusing at first because my dad never told us anything my uncle Bill sent me her birth certificate Irene Chambers, and her adoption papers. She also had a sister Lina Chambers Slack I knew her too, she lived in Detriot we use to visit her also. She came to our home in Miami to take care of Mildred my grandmother (aka Irene Chambers) when she was sick and passed. I did not know of William Chambers her brother! He looks a lot like my dad.
If you are a relative of William Ross Chambers e-mail me and I would love to talk with you and exchange photos!

RE: Manning Cemetery, Saxon
From Harper Road, Beckley, WV, travel west on route 3 approx. 14 miles. At intersection of route 3/99 go straight on route 99 west, toward Bolt. Travel 1.6 miles and turn right onto Saxon road. Staying on this winding road, you'll cross the PFC John Michael Davis Memorial Bridge. As soon as you cross the Bridge, turn left. In a short distance, this even more winding road will make a sharp right around the old ( no longer open ) Saxon post office and starts up a hill. From the Bridge, you will travel about 7 tenth's of a mile. The Manning Cemetery will be on the right, about 200 yards away from the road, on top of a hill. There is a small road going part of the way to it, but turns into a grassy path lying between two wooden fences.

Shady Springs Cemetery
Hello, my name is Don Dean from Madisonville Tx. I am new to all this genealogy stuff but am just totally fascinated by it. A cousin and myself are researching our gr gr grandfather. We ran into problems because our grandfather listed the wrong name on his fathers death certificate. It shows my gr grandfathers fathers name was Thomas Jefferson Giles but no other records were available with that name. We went thru a great uncles death certificate and found another name, Joseph Thomas Giles. The reason I am bothering you is my cousin found a death certificate for a J T Giles. It does not have a birth date on it but the age would have been very close. Also it listed his occupation as a miner which is also correct. Joseph Thomas lived in Fayette and Kanawha county his whole life so Raleigh county is not that far away. The death certificate states he was in the "poorfarm" and is buried in Shady Springs. I was hoping that you might have any clue or know of where we can check farther. My cousin lives within a reasonable drive of there and she is planning a trip soon. There probable is not a stone but hopefully some other records available. Thanks Don Dean

Courtenay Gilmore
Mary Gevia Pennington (Gilmore)

George Kennedy Gilmore Sr. is my grandfather, I am George Kennedy Gilmore Jr's daughter. Are there any records you are aware of that connect my grandfather and Mary Gevia Pennington Gilmore. The death certificate has her name spelled with two Ls. This, of course, could be an error. But, I am having a bit of a hard time tracking down any relationship between the two of them, other than the find-a-grave records.

Lucy Emma Hawley Fitzpatrick
Hi lady, hope you are doing well!! You sent me a message about Emma's siblings listed in her obituary. I looked back in family records and think that the "Mark" listed is Marquis, and "Howard" would be Andrew Howard. As for "Thelma" I'm not finding another daughter for John and Julina named Thelma. Emma did have a cousin named Thelma though. I looked at the WVA Vital Statistics and couldn't pinpoint one born to John and Julina. I'm wondering if maybe Thelma was raised by them and it isn't mentioned in the book. You have the memorial for Emma, maybe you could just add Thelma to her bio with a note that she isn't listed in the family history as a sister. I really don't know how to handle this one.
Thanks, Bev

Sebird Webb ?
Hi there

Is the Sebird Webb, Sr. 117959665 by chance the Sebird Webb who married Dora McGrady? I am just trying to verify where her first husband was buried and Sebird Jacob Webb was his name. I see Emily Smith was the first wife. If this is the same Sebird, he married Dora and had several more children before dying in 1919.

Any info appreciated.

Thanks for your help

He is my father's stepbrother. His mothers name was Ellen Hankins Erwin. His brothers were Wylie Johnson Erwin, Walter June Erwin, Jr., and Harvey Callaway Erwin. Could you email me a copy of his marker picture. I missed his when I was at the cemetery. Thanks. Email

I accepted all your edits for this cemetery. I did not create this cemetery so how do I add the coordinates?

Thank you,

RE: Henry Harvey

Sorry it took me so long to reply to your message back about Henry Overton Harvey duplicated. The Harvey and Basham cemetery are not one and the same. The Harvey Cemetery is currently inaccessible but I am hoping to make an attempt to visit in the spring.

I have copied the links from your Henry Overton Harvey to the memorial in Basham Cemetery. I am ready for you to delete your memorial for Henry O. Harvey.

Thank you,

re: RE: Anthony Roseblock
No problem at all. The only reason I found it is because I was researching the parents. Their daughter died recently and I was confirming that it was someone that I knew.
Thank you for adding the information.

RE: Anthony Roseblock
Of course. I prefer to do that myself.
I found it quite by accident. An obituary of sorts is in the Post Herald of Beckley. The date was July 5, 1972 and it is on page 12. Bottom left hand corner if you have access. I would send it to you but I do not know how.
Thank you.

RE: Big Favor
I'm sorry I still have not heard back from him. I think it is safe to assume since there are no Foley's on the list posted at the entrance of the cemetery, and I found NO Foley graves after photographing the entire cemetery in July 2015, then there aren't any there. I believe the person that created the second Brammer Cemetery and only have Foley's in it knew that as well. I think it's very safe to say, there are no Foley's in the main Brammer Cemetery. If I ever hear from him, I will definitely let you know. I also think the directions to the second Brammer Cemetery should be posted, if there is one!
Thanks, Bev

Judy Penco

I appreciate the documents that you placed on Judy's memorial. It's not believed by the family that Elijah Preston Meadows was her first marriage as their father had other half siblings older than him which is why I didn't put the Solesberry name in for maiden name. There's long stories behind this one.... If you have found a document for her birth that does prove that we'd love to have that one as we haven't found that one(yet)!!!!

Thanks again!!

Best regards,
Keith Meadows
