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: Ocie M. Halstead Harris 68455069
I'll look into that for you and see what I can find out in the near future. I'm trying not to get too far in over my head with this..( heh heh, that's not working out ) I'm having to focus on one part of my family at a time ( for as much accuracy as I can get ) then move on to another depending on research results. It might take me a while...Most of my Brown family ( my mother's family ) are buried at 'Low Gap' Memory Gardens over at Madison WV...I'll keep in touch with you ...Dwight D.

Ocie M. Halstead Harris 68455069
I found Ocie 'America' Halstead Harris mother and father and I put in a edit....I am Dwight D.Halstead, great grandson of Edward Tiffeny Halstead and Martha Jane Belcher Halstead....I saw the entry link for Clemmy Halstead listing his mother as Ocie Halstead Harris. I've found Ocie listed in two US Census records listing her parents and siblings...( match). Please feel free to contact me if needed. Dwight D Halstead

James Wickline in the Oak Grove Cemetery, Raleigh County.
Hello Penny;

Thank you for connecting Floyd Wickline with his father, James Wickline.

I don't know if James Wickline has a headstone or not; I've not been able to travel over to the Oak Grove Cemetery to look and photograph.

Even with Mary Ann Raines, who would be Floyd Wickline mother, the death certificate(s) for her don't specify a cemetery. However, there is a Mr. Raines, who was buried in the Riverview Presbyterian Cemetery, who might just be her father. His name was Floyd Raines. Now, given the death certificte for the Mr. Raines and the dates of birth and death on that death certificate, it might be that the Mr. Raines, is Floyd Raines and possibly he is one of the 'unknown graves' at the Riverview Cemetery. I suspect, that Mary Ann Raines Wickline, would be buried near her parents. The possibility of 3 of the 'Unknown Graves' that are in that cemetery. Yet, the existing records are inconclusive.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know.
Thank you;
Jerry M. Weikle

RE: Hattie Hurt
Okay, thanks Penny. I have gone back to some of my memorials and found typos. I hate to make one on someone's memorial, so I just wanted to check. Please correct any of mine that you may find. Good idea adding the note.

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?
