|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family history & visiting cemeteries as part of that search for about 20 years. I have many relatives in Clay, Fayette, Raleigh, Summers, Greenbrier and Monroe counties in WV. I have started a collection of photographs from various cemeteries in those counties that I plan to upload soon. I will be going to cemeteries in Raleigh County again this year, and am almost finished transcribing the Adkins Cemetery in Naoma (only 3 rows left as of 10/19/2013 !). |
Photos are sized to this website's specs, making some hard to read. If you find photos you'd like a bigger or higher resolution copy of, please let me know.
If I can assist anyone in their search, please let me know. I have found that even the departed can be difficult to locate sometimes.
And if you find I have posted a memorial for your relative and you'd like it transferred to you, just let me know because I love connecting family together.

Hi Penny, I wondered if you would allow me to post your headstone photo in my public family tree on Ancestry? I would post that it is courtesy of you.
|D R Johnson||RE: BB Webb|
Hi there. Glad I could assist. I am related to his late wife Marie on her father's side. I was working on her when I saw her findagrave info and saw his spousal info and thought I would check to see if there may be additional information that could be found since the memorials were created.

Thank you so much for the transfers Penny! I'm kinda new to all of this so there probably is a lot of Jarrell's and McGinnis's that you manage that are my relatives. It's been fun digging and discovering things!

Just wanted to say that her bio information is one of the best I have seen, and why I do genealogy. I'm assuming you are related to her, if so we are long distant cousins, through the Livelys. I love reading something personal, after staring at names and dates, something personal just makes the research worth it. Thank you!

Summers Co., WV, Marriage Records
Vol. 1, 1871-1888, p. 22, line 45, Andrew J. Holcomb & Isabell Smith
Andrew J. Holcomb, age 22, b. Greenbrier Co., son of Wm & Elizabeth Holcomb, m. October 7, 1875, Summers Co., Isabell Smith, age 22, b. Greenbrier Co., dau. of Wm & Sarah Smith, by W. L. Lynch. Occupation of husband, farming
I suppose the citation in his 1928 obituary is due to being so long after the marriage that the info gets mixed up.

|Nancy Horton Gillispie||RE: Samuel McGee|
Penny, the McGhee's are not really my family. They married into my tree in several places, so I was trying to see their connection, but I haven't done too much research on them. Ancestry has given me a hint on the McGhee family that is quite possibly them. It's Charles' 1880 Census, when he was 3. He was living with his father, Steward born about 1850 in WVa, but of course then it would have been Virginia, because WVa wasn't a state yet, and both of Steward's parents are listed as being from WVa. His wife is Mary S born about 1849 in WVa. with her father being from Ireland and her mother from WVa. The census lists Charles as having 3 sisters Sarah A 8, Jennie E 5, and Nannie L 2 months, all born in WVa. The family was living in Springfield, Monroe County, WVa. Here is a link to a marriage record for a Stuart McGhee and Mary Murry, ages 19 and 21, 11 August 1870 in Monroe County. They were listed as both being born in Monroe Co., and his parents are Joel and Catherine and hers are James and Sarah.
Hope this helps!

I am sorry Penny, its LB Lemon and not LB Sarrett.
|Robin Bradford||L B Sarrett|
I have been adding memorials to the Sarrett-Lemon Cemetery near Arnett WV. I found L B Sarretts wife Celie as well as his second wife Hazel. I made links to him and added photo's. I also found at least one of their children Wayman. You might want to review that cemetery and see if you can relate any others to LB. I have more memorials to add to this cemetery. I went there in the summer and the weeds were very high and I got spooked with snakes so I left and plan on going back in late fall or early winter.
|Ralph Harris||RE: Harris|
Not that I'm aware of. They could be related, but we would need a DNA test to confirm it. Here is the Harris DNA study.
I am in Group 6. Everyone in Group 6 is related, but we are not related to any of the other groups.
