Bio and Links
Bio Photo I spend most of my time working with my family, both livng and deceased. My husband and I are from Vienna (near Parkersburg), West Virginia but have lived in the Marietta, (Atlanta), Georgia area for over forty years, with many trips back to the "hills". I love walking cemeteries. It is really the most peaceful place and I enjoy all the great "cuzzins" I meet through genealogy.

Billy Joe Baughman
Sorry I forgot to add that I found a marker for Billy Joe Baughman as well. If you have his info and want to create a memorial I can add the photo. If you don't have the info for him I can create the memorial, add the photo and then transfer to you. Please let me know.

John Henry Wharton family

Many thanks for your fine research on the Parkersburg area cemeteries.

I just inherited this fine photo of my great-great-grandmother's sister's family, the John Wharton family. Thanks to your fine research and posting on, I've figured out the connection.

John Wharton's wife, Ruth Emma (Richardson) Wharton, was the sister of my great-great-grandmother, Samantha Richardson Gribble. Samantha's daughter Sarah married my GGF, James Albert Kelley. My GF, Albert Raymond Kelly, changed the spelling of the name in the era of "Spencerian" handwriting.

Also pictured are their children, Daniel "Berkley" Wharton, Nathaniel J. Wharton, and Elvira ("Vira") Elizabeth Wharton Dickson. The photo is undated, but from the childrens' ages, I suspect it is circa 1900.

I thought this was a very stoic and poignant photo of the Whartons and I wanted to share it with you.

We have visited the Shiloh Cemetery, where many of my ancestors are buried, but we have never visited the Mt. Moriah Cemetery. We'll plan to do so on our next trip to Parkersburg. Thanks again for the fine research and the clues to this old family photo.

Isabelle Smallwood Rollins
Thanks Evelyn for linking Isabelle Smallwood to her Mother Mary Dooms Smallwood. Really appreciated!.. Also she is listed as buried in Heavner. I came across Isabelle's son Norman Rollins will,in WV wills and estates.In that will Norman lays aside money for a grave stone for his Mother Isabelle Rollins, who is buried in Pleasant Dale Cemetery in Upshur County.I looked at the Pleasant Dale website, long list of names no Isabelle but author says list is unfinished. My husband and I want to try to get to Pleasant Dale when the weather is warmer. Just a bit of info for you for Isabelle's page Thanks so much!!Laura Rollins

RE: Mariah Spencer Conrad
Glad to have been able to provide the photo. I don't remember seeing any other markers right near this marker. Unfortunately I did not pay attention to see if she Spencer would have been buried somewhere else in the cemetery.
