Bio and Links
Since 2006 I have been unraveling the story of the John Wesley Hooker family from the Buffalo Ridge section of Patrick County, Virginia. He and his wife Margaret Akers raised 13 children. The quest has taken me to many libraries, court houses and grave yards. The distant relatives, that I have met along the way are the true treasures of the adventure. Along with the facts, I have collected and identified many old pictures, often put away in forgotten boxes. I have tried to share these pictures with their loved ones.

I am currently working on my husband's family- the Ramsey, Gardner, Turner, Jamison and Pinkard families from Henry and Franklin Counties Virginia.

I'm also working on my mother's family - the Manson, Blackwell, Bridgforth and Seay families in Lunenburg Co., Va and the Cunningham , Pollard and Allen families in Prince Edward Co, Va.

Black Cemetery Phelps County MO
I made the links you requested for the Blacks.
Do you know the relationship for James D. Black born 1939 died 1967 & Dugles W. Black born 1961 died 1967. They have a double tombstone. I could link them if you know the relationship. You can send me a edit message through Dugles W. Black's memorial.
Thank you

If you would like these other pictures please let me know.

Pleasant Brown Stanley Cemetery
Hi Katherine , I stumbled across your posting for the Pleasant Brown Stanley cemetery. I was there in 1981 and was doubting if I could find it again. PB Stanley is my GG Grandfather, Owen Henry Stanley is my G Grandfather who married Senora Esther Young from the Hawpatch Hill area. I am curious how you fit into this family. I plan to visit the area again this year. Thanks for your work.

I haven't tried to find Nannie in the 1900 census. Based on a military record at Ancestry Jesse R Pinkard is her second husband. I have her second husband listed as Frank in a family history. I assume Jesse is the father of her two surviving children Homer and Clara. Clara is the informant on Nannie's death certificate. You can find Nannie's death certificate at the Missouri Digital history site and actually look at her death certificate. It looks like she was married to the Hayner for about 13 years.

Sorry to say there are no headstones in this entire Section M Lot 36. According to the plot map there are 15 burials but no stones.

RE: George Lewis Bridgforth
One of the employees of the cemetery was kind enough to look for his grave. I did not ask her to look for the wife as that was not in the original request. I would not want to ask her to go back and look again as she took time out of her busy day to help me.

There was no marker for him but she did verify he was buried at that location.

Bridgforth Family
I have recently revisted as some Bridgforth and Hardy cousins and I have connected.

Our gg grandmothers were siblings, Lucy Rives Collier Bridgforth and Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth.

Your gg grandfather, George Baskerville Bridgforth, was their sibling.

If you wish to share/compare feel free to contact me at

Lucy RC Bridgforth married Griffin Orgain Hardy. The grandchildren of four of his sons have put togethrr a great blog site. You can find it at hardyfamilyhistory.WORLDPRESS.COM. I actually found some old pictures of Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth' soninlaw Charles Betts Hardy in the unidentified album section.

And there are many more. If you think you can help identify some by xreferencing any old Bridgforth pictures you have, that would be so appreciated.

I also just recently got all the kids of Griffin and Lucy attached to them. Now I am going to have to create an eentry for my gg grandparents Missouri Clarkson Bridgforth and George Asa Barnes, cause Louise Keiser has already crested memorials of Charles Betts Hardy's family. Also, I see you have Eugene Bridgforth Barnes. I will be able to link him in.

Thanks for all the posts. Looking forward to hear from you.
