Bio and Links
Bio Photo My research of family names include:

Soccorsi, Ciampanella, Santolini, Lalli, & Lauri families - Colle, Arquata del Tronto, Ascoli Piceno, Marche Italy region and their descendants both in Italy and the US.

Pegley(Pagliari)- Italy and US

Hardman, Fortney, Sigley, Bolyard, Burgoyne in US.

My mother's relations are in and around Masontown, Preston, WV where apparently every one there is related by marriage.

My father's relations are in Preston County as well as Gilmer, Ritchie and Wood county.

I have based my information on here by cemetery books, WV vitals and family knowledge. If the Italian name is spelled one way when born, but changed to Americanize it, I put the American name on here with a note of the original spelling. Just because the birth certificate says one thing, when a person dies they could have changed their name-whether it is their first, middle and or last - it happens.

RE: Mouse Cemetery
"This cemetery is located near the community of Cravensdale, and is adjacent to (east of) Little Arlington Cemetery." ---- to be honest with you, it's weird. Little Arlington is also known by another name. "American Legion Little Arlington Cemetery"

I had added people's memorial's in that one and was told they are the same and there were duplicate memorials.

Upon entering Little Arlington Cemetery, immediately to the right is a small cemetery, the Mouse Cemetery. It's within the same walls so to speak of Little Arlington. I can see why things can get confusing. It was for me when I had visited my grandparents and other family members final resting areas.

I've checked and corrected and deleted my duplicate memorials. I'm not sure about other memorials of spouses.

I come from Carr and Summerfield family lines.

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. This is quite confusing when two cemeteries are in the same chain link fence and one has two names...

Bennett Cemetery Location - Gilmer Co., WV
I am a descendant of Lydia Mowery Deulley who is buried at the Bennett Cemetery, Ellis, Gilmer Co., WV. Can you PLEASE give me directions to this cemetery. She is one of my five great, great grandparents that I cannot locate their grave/cemetery. I will be returning to WV in June to do more grave searching. Also looking for the graves of George Washington Duelley/Deulley/Dooley/Duly, John Franklin Tomey and Moses and Mary (Queen) Bennett's graves. I am told the Bennett's were buried on family property on Hacker's Creek in Lewis NOT likely that I will ever find their graves. Any assistance that you can give would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you are right! OK, sorry, I bothered you with this. I'm trying to get his tree straightened out and corrected. Thank you.

And now that I have totally confused myself between the two Joseph Helmick's, I am not sure at all if I was right about Lona or not!

Sorting out between the 2 of them has been difficult.

Hi Corine,

Just wanted to add a correction to this memorial for Joe Helmick. He was NOT married to Lona Fitzpatrick. That was Joseph P Helmick, son of Abraham L Helmick and Kate Flynn Helmick. He is buried in California - 115387267.

Incorrect spelling on memorial l# 61909231

If you would be so kind as to assist me in getting a name correction put through. The person maintaining the site is historyseeker. The memorial in question is:

Find A Grave Memorial# 61909231

The family members are from my family. The headstones have the name spelled correctly. The person maintaining the memorial is taking the misspelling in a death certificate over my word. I just posted the signature of David Ransom Wittenberg. He is the listed informant on his mother's death certificate that is misspelled. Both his name and her name are spelled Wittenburg, however, the entire family in Alexander County, N.C. have spelled their names Wittenberg for generations. I have more proof that I can submit. As you submitted the photograph of the headstone which is spelled Wittenberg I ask you to join me and submit a name change for the last name to be spelled correctly. I received a message back declining the request saying my info was different than that of the person maintaining the memorial. I know my family and specifically these two people. If you would be so kind as to submit a name change based on the headstone photo submitted I would appreciate it greatly.
Thank you

Crum Family Cemetery
Hi! I stumbled upon the Crum Family Cemetery in my genealogy research. I know it's part of Names in Stone, but were you actually able to find it? I tried to look for it earlier today, but I may need to ask the quarry for permission to search a little deeper. Thanks in advance!
