|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 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.

|John Gavin, FL||Thanks|
That's a great photo of Patrick O'Connor's farmland at Roaring Creek.
|John Gavin, FL||Patrick and Bridget O'Connor family|
Thouught you might like to know...
I ran across another Patrick Conner and Bridget Quinn in a tree at FamilySearch that had family records in Pennsylvania. The tree owner had listed the parents marriage at Berkeley county, VA-WV in 1840 without a source.
I think this date and location must be where my Patrick and Biddy O'Connor were married. This is because I also found the birthplace of their second child Michael in his Nov. 1874, Wood county, WV marriage record with Mattie Hallett. He was born at Berkeley county. So, Mary, Michael's older sister (the parent's first child) was likely born there as well, in 1841.
This all fits into the story that father Patrick migrated from Ireland via Nova Scotia to Virginia where he was employed in the construction of the Chesapeake-Potomac Canal that is in the area of Berkeley county.
I've updated the memorials of all of these family members so, you might like to use this new info for your own research.

Great! The Millers aren't close relatives. They are in my family tree but way out on a limb!
So far I haven't been able to find out much about Jasper's mother -- Cora Vivian Kincaid. I think she was born on 16 May 1884 in Summers County.
Also I don't have much information on his paternal grandparents, Pembroke Miller and Sarah Gwinn.

Check out Taylor Cemetery in Bowden, WV. I saw on the internet for Taylor Cemetery AKA Bowden Cemetery. You might find some information there. I have Ketterman family buried there. I just hope it is not a forgotten cemetery. I live out of state (NC) so I hope to visit Taylor Cemetery some day.
