Bio Photo Family & Friends,

I will be glad to make corrections, additions and add links.

I am not collecting grave-sites, so if I've posted a memorial for someone who belongs to you, then I would be happy to make a transfer.

Please note that copying any of my information and photographs, then posting it on other websites (i.e.- makes me quite unhappy. It also violates the stated rules of all respectable websites. And irregardless, it is a violation of copyright laws... hence, illegal.

I am finding so much of my own material stolen and re-posted on other websites with the violator taking credit for my research. I have even had one 'advanced' reseacher tell me she regards all material free for the taking, "no matter the source". That has been dealt with.

I am actively working to have these violations remedied. Most of these are occurring on, which is no surprise.

If anyone sees a photograph I took, and wishes to add it to their family tree on or add it to their private family tree, just ask me. It is the right thing to do. And it makes things so much nicer.

Please help Mr. Terry from being unhappy. Thank you. #:^)

Much success to all.

Best Wishes,
Terry ♣

Mae Cook Carper # 141772557
Terry, you obviously take pride in your efforts to connect family groups together. I'd like to point our an error in the memorial for Mae Carper. You have attached the correct birth certificate to Mae's memorial, but her parent's names are James Remley Cook and Martha E Price (incorrectly spelled PRISC in Mae's birth record).

You can see Mae in the 1910 and 1920 census with her parents, but more telling is that she was the informant for both parent's deaths. James R Cook died in 1962 and her mother, Martha, died in 1963. Records for both deaths are on file in the West Virginia Archives.

Thanks for taking care of all of our loved ones...whether we knew them personally or not, we all think family counts, don't we?

RE: Re Fielding Phipps
I got Fielding from another graver today - - so will now add lots of stuff to his page... 139839166

and took it upon myself to add Eleanor to the cemetery where her son James is buried - - as she live with him the last couple of census' of her life.... so requested a photo - - if one appears I'll be pleased - but certainly don't expect one.. but mainly can add more "stuff" to our ancestors - - - seems researchers passing by may comment, have additiona, corrections, etc. - - which is fine -- nothing in stone here..

How's your mom - - my sister Connie and I visited her in 2010 - I believe in May - - she was in a nursing home - - pretty confused - - but seemed happy .... which was wonderful...

Re Fielding Phipps
He is buried in (139839166 ) - Phipps Creek Cemetery, Sand Lick, Raleigh County, West Virginia... You might want to delete your "burial unknown"

After Fielding's death ca 1849 - Eleanor married Steel Seth Lafferty (August 5, 1855 in Raleigh County, West Virginia) - - no issue.

She died January 28, 1890 in Pearisburg, Giles County, Virginia ...

Don't know where she is buried - - could be Giles County - - or perhaps one of her children brought her back to Sand Lick also??

The older graves at Sand Lick are not identified - - but they are still burying there... I was there in 2010 - - - had to climb up a really steep hill to find the cemetery - - as I recall it was about 50ft square... Amazing that I made it up the hill - my sister who was with me - - did not make the climb - and once I was up - realized that I did not have my camera with me... Anyway - - as I recall - - and was told by the kid with me - - Fielding's marker is just a rock - real jagged - headstone and foot stone looked about the same ..

My mom Elsie is your mom's sister...

Take care - - Kathy

RE: Cecil F. Moye -photo request
You are very welcome I was glad I could do it. I personally knew Fred and Fanny. They were one of my uncles parents. David "Butch" Moye is my uncle through marriage. His children are my 1st cousin's. We grew up near Fred and Fanny's home in East Sparta and I still live in East Sparta. When I was you Fanny use to crochet poncho's for my sisters and I. They were both good people. Take care.
