Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Joey. I started doing family research and came up short. One good thing that happened though was I found this site. I used to hate cemeteries,I used to get cold chills when driving by one. Now I think how every tombstone had a family that cried on it, and how everyone I know that has passed deserves an online memorial. Nothing can explain the feeling I get when creating an online memorial,or claiming a picture of a tombstone. If you are related to someone I have created a memorial for and not happy with it, please let me know. I do this to pay tribute and my intentions are good, but I understand not everyone shares my interest in online memorials.

p.s If someone takes the time out of their busy day to take a picture of a grave you requested, take the time to thank them. It may be a hobby, but it still deserves recognition.

Also, I have noticed a lot of my pictures being used without my permission so I am going to start using a copyright/watermark on my photos. I will keep an original copy of each picture for family members and friends.

Joey ( Lavalette/Wayne ) WV

Evaline Oxley

Wondering what your relationship might be with Evaline Oxley? She was also my great grandmother on my father's side. My father was Arthur Jarrell White.

RE: Rice Martin

Thanks for doing that. I was doing some more research on
Rice Martin, and I found out something interesting. Here is the information that I found. I think his father was named J. W. Young, and I know his mothers name was Minnie Martin.
I think I found his birth information and it has his name as Reed Young,I don't know why his last name was changed to
Martin, I do remember him, he contracted polio as a child and my grandmother would check on him every now and then. I also know that he had an older brother name Kenneth Martin or young. He might have other siblings. You can go out to the wv archives website and put in Reed young for his birth and for his parents for their marriage just put in Minnie Martin
and for her husband just put in young. I know I have his obituary. His mother Minnie Martin was my grandmothers aunt.
My great grandmother Cee Martin Midkiff and Minnie Martin
Were sisters. Let me know if you need anymore information.

I am willing to manage the Booten memorial, but can not find any Blankenship's. Some Adkins in my tree too. Adkins married to Spurlock's.

RE: Leander Bloss
Joey, sorry for the delayed reply. Yes, Leander Bolss' wife, Demmie Luther Bloss, did not have a memorial page so I created one. She is my 2nd great grand aunt. I used a photo from ancestry that had no owner info. I saw the one you used for Leander and will try to use it, and delete the other. Thanks for the offer.
