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.

RE: Benjamin Franklin Byas/Bias & Martha M. Linger
Evelyn, I do not know where Frank is buried. According to his death certificate, he died in Grasselli, Harrison County, West Virginia; Lynch-Osborne Undertaking Co. was the undertaker.

Benjamin Franklin Byas/Bias & Martha M. Linger
Thank you, Ms. Thorn, for correcting the misinformation on the Ben F. Bias memorial. Benjamin Franklin Byas/Bias who was first married to Virginia Jenkins Byas/Bias (his third cousin), and and then to Martha M. Linger, was my gg-grandfather. After Frank died in 1917, Mattie remarried Thomas Jefferson Wiseman. Mattie was born 16 Oct 1876, and she died in 1930. She is buried along side her second husband in the Georgetown Cemetery, Lewis County, West Virginia. Mr. Wiseman also passed away in 1930 (according to his headstone on findagrave).

Mattie was about fifteen years junior to Frank. I have always heard what a wonderful woman she was to have taken on the task of raising Frank's and Jennie's children as if they were her own. God bless her soul!

Thank you!

RE: Willa Miller
You're welcome! There was a whole family plot so I photographed them all. Weekend has been too busy for me to get back and take inventory, but I will let you know as soon as I do, in case they are relatives and you want to post them. If not, I will add them.

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.
