Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 am still working on transcribing the last three rows in the Adkins Cemetery in Naoma (and photographing the last 6).
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.

RE: Mary Muir
I made an error on my last message to you. I was looking at Mary's daughter Margaret and family. I will do a little more research on the Mary and John Muir family and see if I can find anything.

I haven't really down a lot of research on this line of the family, but a quick search found 129018323 - Arlie Bragg, JR.,
Mary's husband Arlie - 144886346
Probably son David Lee Bragg - 82396809
Harold Delano Bragg - 129018156

I had her name as Myrtle Fare Holstein. Maybe Corbie was a nickname.

RE: Crockett Webb photo
Hi Penny, there are so many Bobby Webb's in Raleigh county I get confused! My sister and her husband Bobby Webb knew Crockett and are related to the family so I will contact them and try to get this straight.. I will be glad to correct any misinformation or help in any way. Thanks for trying to keep all this stuff accurate. Will contact you when I get info, Maggie

RE: Effie Sutherland #71151886
I agree - but I understand that things not so flattering would be linked and there's really no way to adequately monitor that. Glad you enjoyed it. I always feel like it makes the people who have passed live on when I can get a little glimpse into the people they were before they were just a memorial on this site.

Effie Sutherland #71151886
I enjoy reading old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and trying to match the people in the stories to the memorials on Find A Grave. I found a wonderful, compassionate story about the spouse of Effie Sutherland (Herbert Sutherland #7782077) in The West Virginian (Fairmont WV) of 10/10/1916, talking about his dedication to obtain release of a recent immigrant from Ellis Island. I thought you might enjoy reading this.

RE: Henry H Dillon
Yes, thanks. However, I have the same obit typed out. I would have simply posted the obit from the newspaper as you have, except the Find-A-Grave administration has advised they prefer obits being typed to the bio section of the memorial, not posted as document. Since I have many posted as cut outs taken from a newspaper, I've gone to taking the time to type them out in accordance with Find A Grave's recommendation.
