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 will be going to cemeteries in Raleigh County again this year, and am almost finished transcribing the Adkins Cemetery in Naoma (only 3 rows left as of 10/19/2013 !).
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: Nettie Jarrell Massey
Nettie Jarrell Massey died at a earlier age as told by her daughter Leola Arbutus-- my great aunt Mary Jane Hall took care of Nettie while she was sick and then when she died Mary Hall married Thomas Massey-- so not only was Thomas Massey my grandmothers step dad he also ended up being her brother in law-- am wanting to make a trip to Whitesville where my mom has some cousins living there-- hoping they can feel me in --they also have a picture of Nettie that my grandmother willed to her half sister Wanda June Massey Lanyi Dawson Krise
