Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history & visiting cemeteries as part of that search for about 20 years. I have many relatives in Clay, Fayette, Raleigh, Summers, Greenbrier and Monroe counties in WV. I have started a collection of photographs from various cemeteries in those counties that I plan to upload soon. I am still working on transcribing the last three rows in the Adkins Cemetery in Naoma (and photographing the last 6).
Photos are sized to this website's specs, making some hard to read. If you find photos you'd like a bigger or higher resolution copy of, please let me know.
If I can assist anyone in their search, please let me know. I have found that even the departed can be difficult to locate sometimes.
And if you find I have posted a memorial for your relative and you'd like it transferred to you, just let me know because I love connecting family together.

RE: Elloise Toney Garten
Great! I have 4 marriages, but not a lot of info. Please let me know, if you find where Clayton is buried. I'm in Florida, so I might be able to find something through the library.

I wish I could find her husband. He died in Florida. He married several times, and one of his marriages ended in a terrible manner. I found too much.

RE: Thelma Toney McIntosh
Thank you, I discovered her accidently. I had researched her before, when I worked on the family after my visit to Blue Ridge last September, but was not able to find much. I was researching Neil's family, when I stumbled into Thelma. Sad story.

RE: Gainer family edits
Ida Bell had a terrible life after Samuel's death. Such a tragic end. Her father Herod Blake is the eldest son of Nancy Harrell Blake # 158831182. The link has not been accepted yet. I go back to two of her brothers as cousins married in those days. Their father fought in the Revolution. I have been researching the Harrell descendants.

RE: Zada Cantley
Hi Penny, thanks for those notation. Go ahead and send the edits through, that would be great!
I have you on my Find A Grave list but haven't ran across you lately. I live in Ohio but was born in Beckley. Getting ready for reunions down there in July. Take me home country roads!
God bless,
Bev
