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.

Bowden Cemetery
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.

Thank you Penny for the photo of Philipine's stone. That was very kind of you. Maybe some day I can pay my respects to her. She passed away before I was born and was so young.

RE: Bowden Cemetery?
Sorry, I can't say that I'm familiar with the area. I took a trip to Bowden (I live in NC) to try and find some of my ancestors grave sites. I did find a cemetery that some local people called the Isner cemetery (there's a couple Isner cemeteries but this one was in Bowden). This Isner cemetery had a brand new head stone in it but the Isner's on the head stone died back in the early 1900's. The people on this head stone were listed in as being buried in the Faulkner Cemetery. I also seem to recall that their graves had been moved (not long ago) to another location at some point (which might explain why the head stone was new) That being the case, the new head stone that I found might not actually be in the Faulkner Cemetery but some other cemetery that the locals called the Isner Cemetery. The locals might have called this the Isner Cemetery because there are only 2 visible head stones there. (Isner being one of them and Cobberly being the other). The cemetery is small and over grown with ferns but I do know that there are more graves there then the two visible ones. I don't recall there being anything there to identify any other graves but then I can't say I trampled through every inch of the over grown ferns either. Why did I tell you this long confusing story? I don't know. I guess because Bowden isn't a very big place and the name of this cemetery might be in question. If your still interested, I can type you another big long story on how to find it. :)
