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 Frye and Boaz familes from Henry county, VA; and the Ramsey, Gardner, Meshack Turner, Jamison, 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.

Frye links to mother
I tried to submit edits to link a couple of daughters of of John Frye (105970188) and Blanche Melvin to their mother. I found that you had already submitted them. Blanche has two memorials. The one that is in the correct cemetery was created first, but it was the duplicate in the wrong cemetery that was linked to John. Please check to see that you selected the correct memorial for Blanche for your links. (The creator of the duplicate has been informed.)

I have posted a picture on Beth's Memorial that pin points the location of her grave within Felts Cemetery. Click on the picture about three times to enlarge it so you can see the push pin better. Also I have embedded the exact Lon & Lat location of her marker into the top right hand corner of the picture.

Best Regards, -A

Beth and Alvis Gilley markers
Hello, The Gilley markers are in Old Section 3 Row 7. (Hint: most of the time when I photograph a marker for someone I put the location in the caption... so you can click on the picture and see the location, the date and for whom I made the picture)

Now if that location does not mean anything to your family member and /or they are not familiar with the cemetery, I can direct you to some links that will help. Also, if the lat and long coordinates would help, I can provide them after my next visit.

Do you use Google Earth?

All of the markers in Old section 3 are ground level and it could take a while to find the Gilleys marker without some idea where to look.

Let me know how I can help.

RE: Denied links
I denied your request because I thought you were refering to my cousin John William Bouldin 52184691. I knew he did not have any children by that name and I did not realize that Dennis' father had the same name. I will enter the information RIGHT away. Please forgive me for thinking you were talking about my cousin John.

RE: John Clay Frye
Glad you are back. Hope the trip was great. Good to see new info posted. Notice there are some dates that I did not have. Wonder where certain death records were found. I am quite busy next week, but will try to find time soon to send some pictures and discuss information with you. Looking forward to sharing.

Glad to see my grandfather's grave noted, but also note that his second wife, Mollie Vernon, is not there nor children from second and third wife. Can these be added? I may also have photos of other Frye markers. I have not dealt with the process with Find-a-grave so would like more info. Thanks for the work you and others are doing on this project. None of this was available when I did the Frye genealogy.

Warm regards,
