Bio and Links
Since 2006 I have been unraveling the story of the John Wesley Hooker family from the Buffalo Ridge section of Patrick County, Virginia. He and his wife Margaret Akers raised 13 children. The quest has taken me to many libraries, court houses and grave yards. The distant relatives, that I have met along the way are the true treasures of the adventure. Along with the facts, I have collected and identified many old pictures, often put away in forgotten boxes. I have tried to share these pictures with their loved ones. In 2015 my research is mainly on the Nolen, Agee and Akers families.

Also researching my husband's family- the Ramsey, Gardner, Meshack Turner, Jamison and Pinkard families from Henry and Franklin Counties Virginia.

And researching my mother's family - the Manson, Blackwell, Bridgforth and Seay families in Lunenburg Co., Va and the Cunningham , Pollard and Allen families in Prince Edward Co, Va.

Thanks for the catch on a duplicate memorial. Not sure how that one slipped through.

The picture and all of the links have been transferred to the first-created instance #135702850, and the duplicate has been removed.

Hi Katherine - I looked again at the picture. Then I went to the census 1850-1880. I found a Mary J Jones born about 1843 with a post office address of Jonesboro in the 1850. I took most of the pictures of Jonesboro when I was up there, and transcribed most of them from the picture. I think you are right. I will change it. She wasn't my relative but so many in Jonesboro are. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. If she is a relative of yours I will be happy to transfer. Tina

RE: Nancy Creech's marker
Hi Katherine, You are very welcome. Glad we were able to do that for you. We did find something "interesting" concerning Nancy and her husband - Robert. I went to post a photo on Robert's memorial page and was very surprised that they had his burial in the Everglade Cemetery - as his marker was on the same one as Nancy's in Sylvan Abbey.
I posted a photo on his memorial page - even though there were others from the Everglades Cemetery. What a puzzle!?! I was going to take a close up photo of Robert's name on the plaque, but figured I would wait to see which cemetery he is really in.
Please let us know. We've never encountered this before.

Hi would like to thank you for sponsorship of Dr. Moore. I was a patient of his for years in Buchanan Co Va. May I ask are you a relative of his? Did you work for Eli Lilly in Roanoke Va in which it was bought out by Elizabeth Arden? Sorry for so many questions but was curious.
again thanks

Dear Katherine,

I have been notified that you have sponsored the memorial page I made for Orene Powell. If she was a relative or someone very close to you, I would be very happy to turn management of her memorial over to you. Just let me know that you want me to do that.

Thank you,
Bea Mansfield
