Bio Photo NOTICE - AS OF MARCH 8, 2014:

On Sept. 30, 2013, Find-A-Grave was sold to According to Wikipedia, plans to "...launch a new mobile app, improve customer support, introduce an enhanced edit system for submitting updates to memorials, foreign-language support, and other site improvements."

As of very early March, 2014, stopped permitting paying members from using what was known as "old search" and now forces members to use "new search". This new search feature is also touted as a "site improvement" which the company seems to love. Members of, including myself, hate it with a passion. "New search" is completely worthless, difficult to use, plagued with errors and changed what used to be a pleasant research experience into a nightmare.

I am hoping that this is not what plans to do with Find-A-Grave.

Until brings back "old search", I will not be adding new information to any of my memorials here on Find-A-Grave.


After many years of research, both online and with family archives, I've decided to try to piece together the many memorials of those related to me here on FindAGrave. I will add ONLY persons who are related to me and for whom I am certain of burial location and will only ask for transfers of same, within the guidelines.


8th Great-grandparents: William Layton and Violet Blackman

3rd Great-grandparents: James Thomas McCord and wife Martha Burch

2nd Great-grandparents: George W Kerfoot and wife Dorcas M Trout

2nd Great-grandparents: William Elliott and wife Mary Davis

Will also work on maternal lines of: Trout, Dilts, Throckmorton, Stillwell and many others.

And paternal lines of: Wynn, Holzinger, Costello, Smith.

I have considerable information on many lines and am eager to share what I know since, after all, that is the purpose of compiling a genealogy. I will not, however, share my GED file.

RE: Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared
Thanks for the very thorough reply, John. I do not currently know of a connection between myself and the McCord family. I have a book on the Wade family which has lots of information on Coradel's ancestors along that line. If you would like a PDF copy of the book, just let me know. Kind regards, Dan

Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared
Hi John,

I was curious as to whether you are related to Coradel (Find A Grave Memorial# 13978656). While going through the Revolutionary War pension file of George Wade Jr. (my fourth great grandfather), I noticed a copy of a letter she had mailed in 1917 requesting George's pension information. This prompted me to do a little research on Coradel after finding her record in the Wade family of Monongalia County book, which subsequently lead me to her memorial here. Someone in Monongalia County has graciously offered to help try to locate the burial location of George Wade Jr. in Liming Cemetery, so I was trying to check for any new bits of information which might help with this endeavor.

Thank you,

Dan Stone

Ruth Roberts
I went out the Fairview cemetery today and could only find Lemuel and Marjorie J. Roberts next to each other...and there were only funeral home markers for them. There was an empty space next to Lemuel which I assume is for Ruth. I couldn't find her anywhere else in the cemetery. Sorry...

Photo requests

I was just informed by a fellow findagrave member that the notification that photo requests have been fulfilled doesn't work...I think it's been going on for awhile now...not sure if you know but your requests for West Midway and Wiley cemeteries have been fulfilled.

Thanks a bunch!

Charles Elliott
I accidentally added the wrong photo for Charles Elliott so I deleted it quickly. I intend to go out to the cemetery this week where he's buried and take a photo of Charles's stone. Sorry for the confusion...
