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. In 2015 my research is mainly on the Nolen, Agee and Akers families.

Also researching my husband's family- the Ramsey, Gardner, Meshack Turner, Jamison and Pinkard families from Henry and Franklin Counties Virginia.

And researching 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.

I'll go ahead and create the page in East Hill, Floyd and link to death certificate. I doubt it's East View because I checked and both are located a long ways away from that area.

Take Care,

P. S. all edits you sent have been completed

Added info to her husband's obit and found her death certificate you were speaking of but there is no East View in Floyd. I am guessing East Hill in Floyd is where she is buried. Did you create a memorial for her or would you like me to.

Thanks for the correction...sometimes it's hard to make out the dates...that's one reason I am trying to visit and document the older cemeteries around Floyd. Some headstones are very old, and becoming almost impossible to read. I appreciate your letting me know the correct birth year . Have a good day.

You asked if my listing was accurate as to James Lester Roberson being her father. She was born out of wedlock and she was the child of my grandmother and Mr. Roberson and my Aunt.

Are you related to any of the Houchins who moved to Indiana?

Best regards,

RE: Agee family
I was. I'm trying to get my Family Tree Maker up to date now that the Virginia vital records are on line. I've moved on thru the alphabet now. Can I help you? Denise<><

RE: Blanche Ramsey
Thank you for catching that for me! Thanks to your sharp eye, I've realized that I had a lot of duplicate postings when I worked on the Garden of the Good Shepherd section. I'm trying to track them down and eliminate them.
