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.

Arley Meadows
Henry Anderson Britt
Memorial #69465593
Was he a son of William S. Britt and Martha Ann Jane Smith? Martha Smith Britt married Nathaniel Meadows (my great-great-grandfather) in 1875; she inherited much of his estate when he died in 1876. I am trying to locate a Family Bible that was listed in the appraisal of that estate, a Bible that Martha took as part of her widow's due. I am trying to determine if that Bible is still in the Britt family. Can you put me in touch with any Britt family members?

RE: Charles Warden
Thank you so much for all of the editing. I am a Hurt/Warden descendant and have had a lot of family in the area for years, so as I work o the family, I try to work on their memorials, if people will let me. I am glad you posted their memorials, because the Hill Top cemeteries are confusing to me. Their death certificates state they are buried at Hill Top, not Oak Hill, so I would have added them to the wrong cemetery. I'm in Florida, so it's hard to do all the footwork. I will continue to work on this family, and I will let you know about any Sun connections I come across.
Thanks again,

Thank you for linking Alma Hall #114326613 to her father. Your spontaneous response in accepting the edit was a pleasant surprise.

I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

John Gavin, FL
O'Connor family in Randolph county, WV
Hi Penny,
In case you're still interested in the Corley and Skidmore families of Randolph County, WV, I found a book published in 1912 that has some nice biographical information for Manoah Corley and family and their connections with the Skidmore family in old Virginia(WV).

It can be downloaded from the online library at by running a search on 'Upper Monongahela Valley'.
"Genealogical and Personal History of the Upper Monongahela Valley", by JM Callahan. should be near the top of the result list. See pages from 779 forward.

Hope all goes well.
