Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years. After I retired in 1985, my husband and I made many trips to Virginia and Pennsylvania searching for information on our families. Now I can sit at my computer and find most of the same information; although walking through cemeteries where ancestors are buried and going through old courthouse records was worth the trips. Now that I'm 86 and can't walk as well as I used to, I'm grateful for the computer.

My husband died in 2008 and is buried in Sunset Memorial Park in South Charleston, WV. I have been looking up obituaries on those buried in Sunset and adding their names, if they are not already listed. If I have listed anyone you are related to or want to manage, just let me know and I'll transfer the names. Just click on the Edit button.

If you see any errors I've made (fact or typos), please let me know, I will appreciate it.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thank you for creating this memorial. I place honors at many of the military sites that you have made memorials for in Sunset Memorial Park, South Charleston, WV.

I have began a beautification project for this burial site as well as creating a plaque for the Marines of Detachment 947 as he is the founder.
I am requesting transfer for this memorial.

Thanks again, your work is greatly appreciated!

Hi, I saw your request, and added it most of it to their bios. I just deleted the names of the survivors for their privacy. Thanks, and I hope that you have a great day.

Good Morning Dolores,

Would it be possible to transfer this memorial to me? This is the daughter of my 2nd great uncle (Cornillious M. Robertson)and I have created memorials for him and the remaining members of his family. Thank you for your consideration.
