My Grandfather
Thank you so much for listing my paternal grandparents, Elmer and Martha Lilly (she actually died remarried with surname Moomaw). I moved to Florida in 1984 and have only seen those pictures in person once since, nearly 20 years ago. Now I have them with me always. I truly cannot thank you enough.

Olive Garnet "Ollie" Fleur Brown
Hi. I do not even qualify as a novice at this. I just looked up my Great Grandmother on FindAGrave and found the listing of her grave in West Virginia. I had never heard of the name Fleur before. Do you know where you came across that name? Just curious. I added a photo of her grave that I took when my mother and I visited a few years ago. My mom, Loretta Irene Brown, confirmed that it was the grave of her grandmother, Olive Brown. She remembered having to visit it every Sunday when she was a child. Her mother, Alma Marie Brown, and her aunt, Mable Louise Hurt, visited every week. It is an unusual grave stone in that the year of death is listed first and then the year of birth.

RE: Leslie Tyree
That would be fine for you to transfer him to me. I would love to have a copy of his death certificate. I am still searching. He died before April 8, 1929 at Grundy Presbyterian School, Grundy VA of drowning. Still looking for the obit that we think our grandmother had. This postmark 4/8/1929 was from the wife of the pastor at GPS. Leslie's parents were Susan Tyree and L.C. Lively. Susan's parents were Granville Tyree and Katherine Tyree. They are listed on the 1920 census with Lesley Tyree as age 6.

Yes, I'm related, but your daughter-in-law is closer and I'm not invested in owning memorials. Just trying to make sure they reflect accuracy (as much as I can) and are complete and linked where I have the information.

I have deleted my memorial.

Hello! On the referenced memorial you questioned if the Earlyn Phillips cemetery was the same as the Phillips cemetery? I don't believe so. I do know that Low's parents (Rufus & Sarah Phillips) are buried at the Phillips cemetery.

Kind regards,

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
