Bio and Links
Bio Photo I been working on my ancestry information for a a few years (but will always be a beginner) on the following families:

- Rickard, Morrison, Fry & Knapp from West Virginia
- Girton, Hidlay, Herrold, & Yeager from Pennsylvania.

I am working with Family Tree Maker 2012. I really enjoy working with this program. Today (Sept. 9, 2013) I uploaded my tree "Sharon's World & Beyond". This project, and some quilting, helps to keep my mind active!

Originally from West Virginia. I've lived in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and I now live in Kentucky. As I visit other little "burgs" I stop and take a few shots of monuments if I can get to them! I love the different styles from elaborate to simple - I love them all ... especially the hard carved historical markers!

I'm willing to get out to take photos if they are easy to get to! Can't climb all over the country sides any more! Also, if there is a memorial that you would like to maintain just let me know!

Thanks for any help! God Bless! Sharon

If you have the time, please stop by and visit my Mom and Dad. I miss them very much!

And for all of you who has lost a four legged loved one, please know that our heart goes out for your loss. Please take time to visit our little lost Angel.

RE: James Graham. Sunset Cemetery #81739731
It could be there or it could be maybe incorrect grave location given to you. Someone else could try or the cemetery might be able to check it for you and maybe email you a pic if there is a marker. Still might have some Grahams for you, just behind a bit on stuff...donna

My source was The Dixon Telegraph Index, obviously a publication date. Thanks for the correction. Sharon. I'm happy to transfer any but the closely related Girton family to you. Just make requests through the individual memorials.

Thank you for the photo for him. He's my sister-in law's father and I know she'll be thrilled to see it.

There is no death date because nobody who cared has seen it since the funeral. It happens all the time. I have had the names and dates added for my ancestors several times. If you are not family, let someone know. This would be an easy one.

Best regards,
Wade Davis
