Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many of the memorials on my Find A Grave site are either my ancestors or my husband's. I would love to hear from anyone who is related! There are also quite a few memorials that are of no relation, and for those (and even ones that are more distantly related), I will gladly make a transfer to you.

If you could take a moment to leave flowers on my husband's memorial, it would be very much appreciated. He passed away in 2013. It still doesn't quite seem real.

I forgot to ask if you could please take a photo of his grave for me and if you know if he is buried with any other family members?

Wondering if you are related to Samuel Milton Hays? If not, would you mind transferring him to me? He is my first cousin and I am trying to link the family together and write bios for them.

Thanks for the transfer. I had run across your memorial awhile back and wondered where you got the picture of him. Thanks again.

Thomas Shaughnessy
My name is Jennifer Wilt and I live in Doddridge County, WV. I am a member of our Historical Society and work for the Preservation Alliance of WV. I recently visited and documented the condition of Saint Anne's Cemetery on Long Run. Based on its appearance, the cemetery seems to have been abandoned.

You have several memorials for the Shaughnessy family in this cemetery. I am working with the archivist at the Wheeling Diocese to determine the history of Saint Anne's church and cemetery. Below is a copy of the email he sent me:

“It all started in 1850, the only parishes were in Summersville, Wheeling, Weston and also in Wenfill, Virginia. A man known as Tom Clerk had a small church of his own in Lusenberry. Please understand that the Catholic witness to Christ in Doddridge County dates back to the middle of the 19th century. The major source of his influence came in the form of Irish born workers who came with the extension of the main line of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad from Grafton to Parkersburg in 1857. Many of these men and their families settled in the area. A year before that a man named Fr. Bartholomew Stack founded the West Union Church. The Irish immigrants built it on a Catholic Cemetery.
In 1870, part of the cemetery was sold directly to the railroad for the tracks. A Mr. Shaughnessy donated a place called Long Run Grade to the church and a very small church was built on the site and dedicated in October of that same year. Mass was celebrated on Sundays each month by priests traveling from Immaculate Conception, Clarksburg, and even the parishioners arrived at the church by the B&O rail car. Bodies to be interred in the small parish cemetery were also transported by the railroad. Most of the tombstones in Long Run Cemetery belong to immigrants from west Ireland – counties Donegal, Mayo and Galway and names such as Coyne, Conley, Murray, Shaughnessy, Conners and Maloneye.”

I would love to learn more about the Irish families that worked on the railroads in Doddridge County. Unfortunately, their stories have been lost in time. Please let me know if you have any information or stories that you can share with me..... I want to learn all that I can about these families.

RE: John & Mary Howard
Hi, and thanks! Well, the Howards are so shirt-tail to me, that I can't really say that I'm related either. :-) So you might as well keep them.
