NOTICE - AS OF MARCH 8, 2014:|
On Sept. 30, 2013, Find-A-Grave was sold to ancestry.com. According to Wikipedia, ancestry.com 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, ancestry.com 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 ancestry.com, 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 ancestry.com plans to do with Find-A-Grave.
Until ancestry.com 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.
CURRENTLY WORKING ON THE DESCENDANTS OF:
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.

|Dan Stone||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
|Dan Stone||Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared|
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.
|Memories From The Mist||RE: Elliott|
You're quite welcome...happy to help!
Hope you're having a wonderful fall...
|Memories From The Mist||RE: photo|
You're very welcome...it was a beautiful day that day... :)
|Memories From The Mist||RE: Ruth Roberts|
Thank you for explaining the situation...I appreciate it!
|Memories From The Mist||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...
|Memories From The Mist||Oops...|
Sorry for the confusion on the previous message...I was logged in under a group I belong to (One Foot In The Grave) and forgot to log out before I sent the message...thanks again...
|One Foot In The Grave||Elizabeth Maranville|
You're quite welcome...your description of what was inscribed on her stone definitely helped me find it!
|Memories From The Mist||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!
|Memories From The Mist||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...
