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.

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.

Thanks for your reply.

I have been working with a limited program to document my genealogy. It won't allow file copies so I scanned copies of the descendant lists, direct line only, and can send you that file. From Anthony-Judith Chastain with the second line from Sarah Agee and Joshua R Radford. I have mainly worked on the direct lines and need to add other family members. It is obvious that these families "married close" and I have questions about Lonie Via. My father's sisters told me years ago not to dig too deep!

I may not have much to add to your research but I will share what I do have. My email is If you send a message to me, I'll send you a file this week.

I appreciate the amount of work you have done on this site. Perhaps I will be able to add a little.

Agee research
I am a descendent of Frank and Fannie Agee. Thank you for the work you have done on this site regarding the Agee family. Although I have researched my family for years, I just recently found this site. It has allowed me to greatly add to my data.

You posted that you are concentrating on the Agee family this year. I may be able to add some info and also look forward to what you may add as well!

I have several "brick walls" that have been problems for years but that may change now.

I live in southern WV near Mercer Co.WV and Giles Co. VA.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks, PAJ

RE: Adam and Thomas Stultz
Thank you for that. I will look around for additional documents. Sometimes I have found cemetery books online. I'll try that.
