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.

Merging Cemeteries
You should contact Findagrave and ask them to merge the two cemeteries. After you have done this I will delete any duplicates.Instructions are found under Help With Findagrave, found under Actions.

Hi Katherine,

If I remember correctly all of my information came from under Florida, cemeteries and county.

Good luck in your research.

I have requested information from Forest Lawn Cemetery. They are having difficulty finding a record of Mary Walton. if you call the cemetery and ask for the location of her grave, I'll be happy to take the picture. I just can't get it. Thanks

Thanks for letting me know. Apparently the 2010 memorial was in the Green Vaughn Cemetery when I created the 2012 memorial and was later moved to the Rorrer Cemetery. I'll request a merge.

Thank you for the information about her first husband! Do you by chance know where he is buried?

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
