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.

William U. Agee
Hi, I blew the pic up and yes indeed it is a U. When it is blown up you can tell the U is faded or worn out on the right side and it looks like an L. I have changed the memorial to show such. Who were his parents, I will link them, Larry

RE: Photos East Hill Cemetery
The Salem Museum has records from the funeral home and from people who have searched the cemetery from the 60's. Oakely's funeral home claims to have buried them there; but there was no location for any of them. The city has taken over the cemetery and they had a location, which I searched and I did not find any of them. The city's records are not alays accurrate. I have seen some Brown's in East Hill Cemetery.

Hi - I wanted to let you know that there is a nice sketch of him on page 111 of Makers of America: Biographies of Leading Men of Thought and Action , Volume 2. It's on Google Books.

I'm not related, just collect images of Confederate Soldiers. History fan.

Thanks - Happy New Year

RE: Akers Ross
They are buried next to each other. If you click on the photo to bring up the photo I usually put the cemetery info on the bottom of the page.
