I saw that you added a photo of the cemetery for Western State Hospital Cemetery, Staunton,Staunton City, Virginia, USA. I was wondering if you live in that area and if you would be so kind as to see if you could locate the grave of my 5th great grandfather listed above and take a photo of his headstone and place it on his memorial. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Just curious about the spelling of the last name of Samuel 24595074 and wife Sarah Brohard 35186255 is HIGGINBOTHAM. Tombsone is spelled Higinbotham.

His father and and mother are in the same cemetery. I can't remember off hand his fathers first name Mother is Lydia. They are spelled HIGINBOTHAM on tombstone and memorial.

I know sometimes the last name spelling is changed. Just curious, I am distantly related to Sarah and would like to know if possible the spelling for my tree.

Thanks, Janis Webb Babb

Good Thursday Morning Ken,

Doris Jean Robinson is my 6th cousin. I am connected up through the Groah line to Elizabeth "Betsy" Zinc (1797-1866), who is my 1st 5x removed. I have searched for some of the Robinsos and Newman clan on and come up with nothing. Would love to know your source for newspaper articles from New Martinsville and Wetzel County, West Virginia...
Many thanks in advance and I hope this message finds you well.

Henrietta Ward
you have a memorial for Henrietta Ward. Have you run across any records at all for her parents. Thomas & (Penelope) Racheal Ramage? They both died in the same town as the cemetery. Findagrave has the mother in Columbus Ohio but. she is not in any records here.
I am interested. If you can help, it would be helpful to me. Thank You. Patty

Greetings, Ken!

The memorial page you created for Joseph Tuttle (above) in May 2004 is pre-dated by the one I created for him in January 2002 (Joseph Tuttle #6082178). The duplication has come to my attention now because it is creating problems in the family links section with the listing of Joseph's 5 wives in numerical order, an issue which is presently frustrating other contributors.
Aside from being the original entry for Joseph Tuttle, #6082178 has a substantive bio, grave photos and more family links than the duplicate #8738522, so there would be no loss of info if dupe were deleted.
I understand that dupes often occur due to glitches in the search engine, but they will be removed by the Administration if reported. Would you please delete the entry yourself to facilitate matters?
Thanks for your consideration.

Best regards,

I noticed that Sarah E. Cooley was listed as his parent, however she died 14 years before he was born. I wondered if you had anymore info on the actual mother and whether it was Darcus Cooley, the same as Ida's.

Thank you very much for the excellent photos you took for this family. I also enjoyed seeing the lovely cemetery setting with such a pretty view. I appreciate the time you took to fill my request.
