I was born, raised, and still reside on the family farm in Daniels, West Virginia. I am the busy mother of an active 5 year old son and wife to an amazing husband of 11 years. I also work a full time job as a cosmetics beauty advisor. My husband and I are huge history buffs and we enjoy doing genealogy research together. (Him watching a movie/playing a video game with me beside him on the laptop haha!)He is a good sport about it all and will go out searching for family graves with me. I have an unexplainable draw to my ancestors. For me research is an adventure where the rewards never end but grow sweeter with each piece of information that is confirmed and locked into place. I seem to never be able to find enough information on any one person to satisfy me. My nickname, SherlockJo was given to me by my cousin that enjoys doing a lot of the family research with me. I fiercely love my family past present and future and I am dedicated to preserving my heritage for future generations.
Stevens Sending you MEB and wife Margaret, you have been doing such wonderful work on the family. I know you will complete their memorials. Let me know if I can help in any way as far as digging for some extra data-
RE: Staunton Griffith The picture is Stanton with his second wife Louise Lilly, my gg-grandparents on my mother's side. I have gone back and added a caption to the photo. It has been over 7 years since I visited Stanton and Louise Griffith's grave site with my grandfather, however, I do remember at least one, maybe two other grave markers. It's not really a cemetery... they are buried on a hill behind their old home place, before you get to Shady Spring. The next time I visit WV I have promised to get the exact address and location, and will also photograph the other markers.
