Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and now live in Martinsburg, WV. I enjoy looking up cemetery records for people who request help in locating family members buried locally or in the tri-state area.
My maternal grandparent are from Columbus, Ohio (Schwaigert) and West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland,(Crum). My paternal grandparents from Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia are Harding, Jones, and Johnson.
I do try to be exact in my recordings, however if I make a mistake, please let me know. I record from monument and markers that are in the cemetery I am working. I take photos of those monuments and markers to verify name spelling and dates. I do record from funeral annoucements in local and area newspapers. I then go to that cemetery and take a photo of the burial place.
If I can be of service to anyone, just let me know.

Please for the sake of correctness and speed use the edit tab on memorials you want corrected and state the correction. Thank you.

Memorial # 63951828
Thanks so very much for your time and efforts helping with The above Memorial for Pauline Higgs has a typo. Her birth is listed as 1852, and the marker (and my family records) show her accurate year of birth is 1825.

Thanks, again for all you do.

RE: Williams memorials
I looked, and it seems as though the original poster has already fixed it. They must have gotten a notice when I posted the photo of the headstone.

Thanks for looking into it.

Williams in Mount Olive, NC
Monte: I have added photos of the headstones of Isaiah and Annie Williams, both of whom are buried in a tiny cemetery in the middle of a field in Mount Olive, NC. As I uploaded the photos, I noticed three things:

1) Isaiah's name is misspelled in your memorial.

2) The date on the headstone does not match the date in the memorial.

3) Since Annie's headstone says that she is the wife of Isaiah, this relationship no longer needs to be inferred - it's proven.

Isaiah Williams is my GGG-Grandfather.

It appears that Damon Fisher may have copies the pictures you added to my memorial for Samuel Boyd, Jr., and posted them on his duplicate memorial. Mine is #65911758.

RE: Dorothy Aikens Memorial
My personal pleasure. To date I have found that all Aikens, with the S on the end, found in West Virginia are related. Thanks for setting this up on Find A Grave. If you would like to transfer Dorothy over to me, I would willingly accept, if not, that works also. Thanks again.
