Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy locating "lost" cemeteries and doing complete surveys of them and other local cemeteries. I add as many photos as I possibly can as time permits or whenever I see a photo request. But first I add the person's name and dates so you know where your ancestor is buried. I tend to get involved in the people buried in the cemeteries and try to use my genealogy skills of over 30 years to link those buried to their loved ones. This is done to make it easier for researchers to locate family members.


I am happy to transfer your family and friends to you, as long as they aren't mine too. DO give me a REASON to transfer to you though! I AM A CARETAKER WHO IS ONLY WAITING FOR A FAMILY MEMBER TO CLAIM THEIR LOVED ONE. These graves belong to those who loved them, even if they never met in life.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown or a person from an incorrect cemetery into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my "duplicate". It is not fair that I spend my time, my gas, my $, hunt down owners of the properties, bee stings, ticks, poison ivy, and even risk to my life (bull in the pasture, scary men, and electrified fence-no snakes so far) to photo gravestones only later to find that an armchair F-A-Ger has placed a name in either an incorrect cemetery or has a burial unknown, finds I have actually found-the-grave, moves theirs to the correct cemetery and then expects me to delete my entry. I WILL TRANSFER my submissions after the incorrect entry is deleted. This way we both get credit and the person who makes the incorrect entry still has a memorial they maintain. I feel this is more than fair. This is in accordance with FAG rules! I refer you to Find A Grave rules: "In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location". Thanks for listening to my venting!

Happy hunting!

Sorry I have not gotten to your request as of yet. I am working on my 50th class reunion for the 25th of Sept. After that I will try to get to yours and one stop at Hill Top in Fayette Co.

RE: re: Lilly
I've figured that one out already! So thanks for deleting the wrong one. I need to re-address a couple things along those lines myself! Pat

Good Morning, in response to your email for my photo request, I've been looking at this and see there are two Find A Grave memorials. One at Brammer in Raleigh County which shows a photo that Keith Meadows took - #148308638. I believe this is correct. Keith and I "talk" at times about different family and I can contact him if need be. The other Find A Grave #99644408 created by Pack Family is at Brammer Family Cemetery in Flat Top and I believe this is incorrect. So what do we do? Another problem here. Thanks. Pat

Oh, that would be great, I appreciate it!

RE: re: Audy Lilly
I received an email with his obituary showing he was buried at Flat Top Cemetery. I thought maybe you posted the Sunset picture because I created the memorial putting him in Sunset but you hadn't found his grave yet but may be looking for it. I put him there from family records so I assumed they were wrong when the obituary was sent. If you found him there, then I'll change him back, maybe he was moved. What do you think?
Thanks, Bev

Not sure what you are asking. Would be happy to share off site.

Can you please remove your photograph on his memorial? It has been determined that he is not buried at Sunset after all and can not be located at any Flat Top Cemetery either, so I have changed his burial as "unknown" at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

re: RE: Raleigh Cemetery, Raleigh Co., WV
From what I recall, from Beckley you head down Raleigh Hill on route 3, and turn right on Sullivan Road just after the railroad bridge. Go on up Sullivan not quite a mile and turn right on Carl Vest Road. You follow it back maybe a quarter mile and Carl Vest takes a right turn, but you stay straight on Ozark Lane. There's a house on the right, and just after the house there's a lane on the right going back in the woods and the cemetery is there.

If I'm right, the location is: 37.751211, -81.162182

RE: re: Michale Lilly & Salem Primitive
If didn't live so far away I could spend a lot of time at Blue Ridge. I keep saying that I'm going to take a few days and go down there but when I'm down there for family reunions I'm no where near Blue Ridge and time doesn't usually allow for it. Plus I'm usually down there over a holiday weekend and the office is closed. They've been really kind over the phone with me. I appreciate all the photos you've taken for me since I've known you. I still have a few at Sunset but their office personnel is ridiculous!
Take care,
