Walker memorial Cemetery
Walker Memorial Cemetery at Summersville is the old Groves Cemetery. Old death records do say Groves Cemetery, but the name today and the name on Find A Grave is Walker Memorial Cemetery, and that's where you will find the graves of those people I mentioned in an earlier message. It is NOT the same cemetery as Walker Cemetery at Tipton or Birch River.

James Neil Walker is buried at Walker Memorial Cemetery at SUMMERSVILLE, Nicholas County, WV. NOT Walker Cemetery at Birch River.
Hiram D Walker and Ida Belle Walker are also buried at Walker Memorial Cemetery, NOT Groves/Rader.
Walker Memorial is the old Groves Cemetery at Summersville and this may have caused the confusion.

Thank you for the edit. I obviously pasted the bio I was sent without reading carefully.

RE: Gibson
You had what appeared to be an unanswered question regarding the actual county in 1790, (due to a guardianship which took place in Randolph county) between Randolph and neighboring counties. So I looked it up in one of my books and gave you a response.
This was on one of the Fields family members sites.

Just trying to be helpful.

RE: Peter Hardman 82175902
you are very welcome :) Wish the photos were better! I took them back when I first started doing the picture taking for Findagrave and was using an Iphone 3! I've been going back randomly retaking those so when I get to this one again I'll be sure to send you a message!

Hi there. I have sent you 2 mails with details of all headstones in Moate and of additional burials without headstones. Unfortunately the person you are looking for does not seem to be there.

But I did read your script and you mention Carlow which is now Westmeath. Maybe you have a mix up as Westmeath was never known as Carlow. Carlow is in a totally different location and still exists. They are about 80 km apart.

In 1790 Randolph Co,VA encompassed about 2/3 of Barbour county, WV, All of Tucker co, WV, 90% of Upshur co, WV, Most of Webster co,WV, and about a quarter of Pocahontas co,WV(current counties)

RE: 132097837 Mary Ashland
Hi Toots,

If I understand you correctly, the link you created to Mary Ashland is the link that works. If that's the case, there would be no need for you to even consider deleting it - because the only thing that I was asking was for you to delete the link which causes the 'Memorial Not Found' page to be displayed. The 'Memorial Not Found' page is often seen after someone has requested that a Memorial be removed by Find A Grave web site personnel. However, when the Mary Ashland Stout duplicate was removed, the link was not completely removed from Joseph Stout's Memorial.

When any memorial is removed - for whatever reason - it is never put back into place. So, the best course of action is to remove any existing links to the 'Memorial Not Found' memorial.

RE: 83791331 Margaret Skidmore
I haven't been able to retrieve the obituary on Margaret Skidmore Floyd which would have more family information. It would be in the Sunday edition (Aug 7, 1977)and it isn't available on line.

I looked for information on Thornton Guy Floyd and I found an obit on "Guy Floyd" - dates match those on Thornton Guy Floyd.

I wonder if Guy and Margaret were divorced?

It appears Guy had a second marriage to Ruth Werkman who died August 20, 1961. Her obit doesn't list any surviving children.

I'll send you the 2 obituaries I found.
