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: 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.

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.

Talitha Phillips
Hi Penny, could you update the family section of Talitha Phillips? She had two sons, Frankln Calvin Phillips (1906-1971), Leslie Coleman Phillips (1909-1985) She had two other sisters, Naomi Ruth Keller Isner (1884-1959) and Ivy Myrtle Keller Anderson (1899-1992). Two half sisters Martha A. Keller Lowther (1878-1938), and Florence May Keller (1876-1926).

I am the great nephew of Talitha. Here sister Ivy Myrtle was my grandmother.

RE: #112448110 Hendricks
Hi Penny, I found a lot of 'rocks' there I believe you are talking about and have no idea either who they are. I heard about the woman reselling plots but didn't know much else about it. I will go back maybe in the spring and try to do some more. I appreciate all the hard work you have done on this cemetery. It takes a lot of time!
