Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my families since 2000 which consist primarily of (paternal) Fortney, Groves & Summers and (maternal) Armstrong, Boylen & Fawley.

The majority of memorials I have created are of my relatives. However, I have created some memorials for unrelated folks whose headstones I just happened to photograph while visiting a particular cemetery. If I have created a memorial that you'd like transferred to you, please send a note via normal channels under the 'Edit' tab of the memorial with a comment stating your relationship to that person.

Headstone Photos: permission is hereby given to relatives to use my headstone photos for their personal use. You can right click on a photo and select to Save to your computer.

If you are or think you are related to me, please contact me by email and/or visit my website.

RE: Richard D Summers #85761989
You are correct, those are his parents. Go to and pull up Richard Summers in the obituary section. His obituary lists several living family members you may be able to contact for more family information.

If you can't reach any of them, let me know and I will be happy help you get in touch with them.

Good luck!

I don't have any family info for Richard Summers, but I'm checking with my sister-in-law, Donna Hart. Donna is the family genealogist. Hopefully she will know who his parents were. I'll let you know what she says as soon as she gets back with me.

Wright and Tanner

The Wright and Tanner memorials you sent edits for were my grandfather's sisters. I actually sent a request to have Ramona's memorial deleted for the time being because she is still alive.

Elihu Summers

I don't have any record for his parents. However, I do records of Mary's parents. I found that her father was John L. Cupp (1809-1880) and Mary Wilhelm (1812-1890). I looked for Elihu's birth records, but I'm sure they were lost in the courthouse fire in Preston County during his lifetime. I don't have any other way of finding out. Although, I did find death records for Mary Wilhelm Cupp; there is no documentation linking her to Mary Frances Cupp Summers.

Hope this helps,

Mary Frances Cupp
Hi, I was looking at your bio on Chancy Summer's page, and I noticed you were looking for a more exact death date for Mary Frances Cupp. She is in my grandmother's family bible as dying in 1904, although I don't have any more accurate records of it.

RE: Virginia Rachel Ringer Fortney #87636033

I added the Ann.

US Find-a-Grave has her as
Virginia Rachel Fortney
Birth 9 Jan 1852 - Preston County, West Virginia, USA
Death 2 Jun 1938 - Valley Point, Preston County, West Virginia, USA

That is where I got the Virginia from. I knew everything else should the Virginia dropped. Also 1852 Preston birth record has her as Virginia Rachel Ann.

The records will drive one crazy - birth, marriage, death etc one person but different names. First and middle names switched.
