I am a native of Cabell County, WV, born and raised, and a 1998 graduate of Marshall University with a BSN in nursing. I have been blessed with 3 children and 8 beautiful grandchildren. Of all the things I take pleasure with, genealogy is my passion. It has been my hobby for over 25 years. In 1997, I volunteered to coordinate the Cabell County, WVGenWeb at Rootsweb.com. I can't post the cemeteries I've read fast enough on FindAGrave. Most of my entries on FAG were done before they added the update to link parents and spouse. I work on adding this information every day. Please DO NOT take the photos I've posted and add them to your family tree on Ancestry.com. These are my photos and taking them without my permission is stealing and against the law. Please do no post death certificate taken from WV Culture web site to my entries on FAG.
Caverlee and Gibson photos Thank you so much for the photos! I read on your contributor page that you do not want your photos used. I am unclear if that is an absolute (which I certainly will respect) or if you sometimes grant permission. Therefore I thought I would ask. May I have your permission to use these 2 photos on my ancestry.com family tree? I would be pleased to give you credit. Regards chet walker
Thank you for the correction to Lillie's memorial. I have updated it. The info that "Cora Harshberger" was the mother came from the death certificate. I guess Hobart gave his own mother's name when asked, instead of the mother of the child.
RE: Ross Cemetery Thanks - I am looking for Agnes Vernatte Bowen, buried 24 March 1946 (died the 21st); daughter of William Vernatte and Ellen Ross. I suspect her parents; and possibly, her husband, Carl, are there also. He probably remarried, as she was 29, him, 32.
Any help appreciated...all I have is "Ross Cemetery, Salt Rock, W. VA." Cheers~ Shirleen
Bowman Cemetery??? Is there an old cemetery documented located on Bowman Hill Road, left off 8th Street: On the right side of the road at top of hill; black iron staircase leads up side of hill to cemetery. Not marked or tended. A fellow took his dad to Huntington in the early 1990's to visit where family had lived and were buried. He listed the headstones they could read in a doc. I am particularly interested in the McComas children who each died in infancy and share a fading headstone (that was in 1990's) Here are the names he listed: 1. Jeremiah (3/10/1852 – 5/20/1906) and Mattie Sullivan Barbour (1/8/1855 – 2/20/1941) ***these are gandparents of the McComas children--Edith's parents*** 2. The McComas babies: Pearl Etta, C.J, Nell, and M[?]_y_rey (stone was worn – this is most probably Aubrey). ***I have birth and death dates for the children of Earnest Bing McComas and Edith Mae Barbour McComas) 3. Martha Riffle and John Simmons (C.G.’s parents); there were no years on the stones. 4. William and Lizzie Snodgrass were there too – likely the parents of Blanche Snodgrass Barbour, wife of Ira J Barbour.
