|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.

You know what Penny, it's just a strange situation, but it's par for the course for the service I get from Sunset personnel. I have a two cousins, which were Johnnie"s niece and nephew, that attended his funeral and say he was buried at Sunset. However, when I called Sunset, they say they don't have him. I even called Blue Ridge, which I already knew the answer to, and they didn't have him either. Historianne hasn't finished Sunset, but what she has completed, he isn't in. I hope this isn't one of those cases of he wrong person buried under the wrong headstone!!Johnnie Jacob Walker was born June 30, 1924 in Lego, WVA. I don't have his death date but I remember my mom going to see him before he died and I believe it was in the early '80's.
My cousin remembers a Hooters being next to the cemetery, which Sunset confirmed! I just don't know where to go from here. Thanks for your help.

Are you by any chance showing a Johnnie Jacob Walker in your records being at either of these cemeteries. My cousin said he is buried at the oldest cemetery on Harper Rd. by the Holiday Inn. I don't think it's Sunset because that's on the other side of the bridge isn't it?

Ok, I know that area, just wasn't familiar with Darnell Furniture. Used to be Grey Lumber yard years ago. I'll be down there in a few months, I'll have my cousin take me out there. The only way I ever knew how to get to Fitzpatrick was to drive up Mabscott Hill along Robert C. Bryd, to a stop sign and turn right. They have (or used to have) Fitzpatrick reunions out that way. I didn't know they tore down the old Hollywood School.
Thanks again for your input, I appreciate it.

Are you talking about Robert C. Byrd Drive at Mabscott Hill? That's the only way I know to get to Fitzpatrick. I'm not aware of Darnel Furniture though. I know the old Hollywood School is there.

Ok, I'll ask them. They grew up in Fitzpatrick too. I looked at the map and it just seemed so far away from where their my dad and his brothers grew up in Fitzpatrick. Thanks for the input and help.

Yes, could you transfer my cousins Phyllis and Lowell Thompson over to me. Thank you.
Two of my second cousins have been mowing the cemetery and says it is now on property owned by an individual that doesn't like for people to go to the cemetery because it's on personal property. They still take the lawnmowers back to it but I guess they get a lot of flack from the owner. One of my cousins is going to make a list of names for me and I'll compare those to the other cemeteries listed as Fitzpatrick to see if we're talking about the same one.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the info on Tommy. When I was trying to figure out what Fitzpatrick Cemetery my aunt Ruth Hatcher was in, my aunt in Beckley threw some other names of people in the same cemetery at me to look for. When they didn't show up in any other cemetery, I added the cemetery and all the names she told me about that she knew were buried there. I didn't have any info on them, but I want to find this cemetery when I go to Beckley in a few months and try to build this cemetery up.

|BeVera||RE: Ruth Hatcher|
I had checked with my aunt that is in Beckley and she said it wasn't Crab Orchard, it was in Fitzpatrick and it was a small family cemetery of Stumps and Smiths. I don't know all the places you mentioned in your message. I know how to get to Fitzpatrick at the Sophia exit. I thought Crab Orchard was down the hill from the exit going toward Walmart. Fitzpatrick is up the hill and to the south of Mabscott Hill. I think I'll have to check it out when I get down there in a few months. Thanks for your help.
