Howard Joiner
I believe you might find the photo and bio I added to findagrave for Howard Joiner of interest. He was an extremely powerful individual and I was shocked to see so little information listed.
Thanks for all you do to see such individuals carry on.

Hi, Cousin!
Wishing you and yours a Very Happy New Year!

)ld Bethel Cemetery
Mr. Cook, I noticed that you entered most of the Find A Grave entries for the Old Bethel Cemetery, Harrison Co., OH. There are others buried in the cemetery according to the book "Cemeteries to Remember." If you would like to enter the missing people, I would be glad to send you the pages from the book. What you are doing is so very important. When I look at the photos of the stones and see how close they are to disappearing, the record you and others like yourself are making may be all that is left of these people in another twenty years. And Find A Grave reaches a great number of researchers but the book I have does not, so I would like to make those pages pertinent to Old Bethel available to you for your use. Just send me an e-mail address so I can send the pages to you rather than this open forum. Thank you for your good work. Carol Hines at

Richard was my maternal great-grandfather. My grandmother was Usher's daughter, Rosa May Cook Burge (1899-1969)from Wetzel County WV. Could you add her to the list of Usher's children? Thank you. My email is if you need to contact me.
