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.

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.

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.

RE: James D. and Harbour Lee Ross
I was confused by your first edit that had Daniel's wife as also the wife of McD. you have a different wife for Daniel? It's my confusion....I will remove her as the mother of McD. since she is apparently his wife....sorry.

RE: Samuel F. Gray
I looked back through my photos and records and the only other Gray I found that day was John Gray, who may have been a son. I hope you have good luck finding Bertha Houchins Gray! If I ever happen to see it in any of the local cemeteries, I will photograph and add the memorial for you.
