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

Much success to all.

Best Wishes,
Terry ♣

RE: My apologies.
Thanks for noticing the error in spelling my name. I spent the first several decades of my life correcting people, then gave up. I felt like I was losing the battle. I blame my mom for never being able to get cheap little things with my name on them since it was always spelled without the e.
I would be happy to help you finish photographing Holly Hill (on cooler days then today). I have never made it a goal to photograph an entire cemetery. My goal has just been to fulfill all of the requests for a cemetery. You are much more ambitious than I. Of course, if you finish photographing the whole cemetery, you might put me out of a job!
Let me know a couple of days ahead when you plan to be out there and I could meet you there. You don't bring that pet tiger in your photo with you, do you? I love cats, but not quite that big.

RE: lightning bugs
How did you know about the lightning bugs? It's so funny that you mentioned them. We just had a family from Colorado staying with us who had never seen lightning bugs. Despite taking them to see all of the typical tourist sites in the area, I think running out to see them every night was the highlight of their visit. Sometimes the simple things in life are the best!
By the way, I don't mind searching cemeteries to fulfill photo requests. I believe in RAK (Random Acts of Kindness). I just get frustrated when others aren't as willing to help each other.

RE: Thomas Langley
Hi "befuddled" Terry,
Sorry to confuse you. I took the photo of Thomas Langley's gravestone marker in response to a photo request posted on Find A Grave for Holly Hill Memorial Gardens. I was confused when I saw the photo already on the memorial page and assumed (incorrectly) that the request had been sent in by the creator of the page. Unfortunately, I can't go back to notify the requester that it had already been done because the request has been removed from the photo request page for Holly Hill. Actually I just finished fulfilling all of the requests for this cemetery since they have been the only ones in the area nice enough to work with me to locate the markers. I'm having to walk the entire cemetery of almost 2,000 in the other cemeteries in the area that I have "adopted" because the people in the offices are not willing to take the time to locate grave markers for me (even one or two at a time). Can you hear the frustration in my voice? Sorry again for the confusion I caused you.

Thomas Langley
There is already a photo for Thomas Langley's marker. His wife. Dorothy Langley, born Aug. 16, 1947, has a marker next to his, but the death date is not filled in, so assume she is still living.

Myrtle Combs
Terry I just found the email that was sent to me regarding Myrtle Combs. I hope I posted these edits. I never question an edit that you send. I know you do your research.
If I didn't post it then please let me know.
Spring as always was a bust. Straight from winter to summer it seems. Almost 90 here today and we have actually had a few 90 days already.

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
