Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my Brinegar and Riley roots since 1999. I've traveled to Alleghany County, North Carolina and several counties in West Virginia and Maryland documenting cemeteries and historical documents from genealogy libraries and court records.

Other family names I research: Cosner, Reel, Reall, Kitzmiller, Hawk, Riggs, Joines, Caudill, Hoppers, Osborne, Pruitt, Blevins, Wagoner, Crouse, Holloway, Billings, Turner, Reynolds, McCloud, Smoot, and Foster.

Jimmie Brinegar

You asked if Jimmie Brinegar is somehow related to Woodrow and Sarah Blanchard. I don't know why he is buried with them. The only thing I could find is that Sarah Blanchard signed Jimmie Brinegar's marriage certificate (Washington State Digital Archives website). The name Brinegar is not mentioned in Sarah's obituary. I could not find an obit for Woodrow Blanchard or Jimmie Brinegar.

I'll go to the cemetery as soon as I can and see if I can read the inscription. I'll send you as much as I can see.

RE: Elvira (vera) Elisabeth David Burkhalter
Wow NO. Her daughter married a Baird. She married Charles Burkhalter. Corrected, thanks for the heads up. That's what I get for late night genealogy binges!

RE: White Rock Methodist Cemetery
I don't know. We drove by it one day and I stopped to take pictures. In looking at the cemetery index for Surry Co. I am not finding a White Rock Baptist Church or Cemetery. Check this site for the list of burials in 2008 or 2009.
