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.

RE: Cannaday duplicates
Thank you Katherine. Is it possible to get a copy of the book "Cemetery Records for Franklin County?" I have a lot of ancestors from VA & WV. Is there any thing in the Book about Elizabeth Rakes Cannaday wife of James Cannaday. She died on 1 Sept 1853 at age 97. They are my 4th great grandparents.

Thanks Karen

Cannaday duplicates
FYI: Isaac Young Cannaday is listed in both Cannaday Family Cemetery, Franklin Co., VA & Jones-Cannaday family Cemetery, Endicott, Franklin Co., VA. This appears to be the same cemetery.

Isaac's two Find A Grave #'s are: 177080115 & 142397085

Do you know if there is a way to combine the inforamtion?

Thank you. Karen Supplee

Thanks Katherine. I will contact the owner of the other Edna memorial. And yes, William David/Davis Lawson is my 2nd Great Granduncle.

Edna C. Pritchett Lawson: Duplicate Memorial
Thank you for your message about the duplicate memorials for Edna C. (Pritchett) Lawson (12760241 and 91857147). I would be glad to delete my memorial in favor of the older one, but there is information on my memorial that is not on the older one (and vice versa), and I don't want to lose it. Is there a way to merge them?

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.
