Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interests in genealogy lies with my family's roots in southern West Virginia. Walkers on my mothers side and Hatchers on my fathers side. My cousin wrote a 700 plus page book of the Walker History going back to 1734. I took an interest of photographing headstones of ancestors in the cemeteries I was familiar with and then it spread out to larger ones in Beckley and now I am trying to find EVERY cemetery named in this book. I am compiling a photo album of headstone pictures and Find A Grave printouts and cross referencing them to the page they appear on in the Walker History book. I will never ask for a transfer of a memorial that I am not related to the person. I hope one of these days my grandson and future generations to come will appreciate our efforts.
Thanks to Find A Grave volunteer photogs I have received headstone pictures as far away as California and Oregon. Once, while visiting my in-laws in southern Texas, I went to Ft. Sam Houston and found the grave of my third cousin that was killed in WWII. I have a cousin, Sheila Lewis Underwood, that has created our family tree on Tribal Pages using this same Walker history book and in collaberation with her our childrens' childrens' children can look back on our history in awe.
Other family names in my genealogy are Lilly, Meadows, Wallace, Woods, Daniels, among others.

PLEASE NOTE: Before you ask me to edit one of my memorials, please provide documentation to prove your request. I will not change names, dates or places of death or birth without adequate legal documentation; copies of birth or death certificates, marriage license, copies of newspaper obituaries, just because you say so. Same goes for links. Relationship must be proved before I will link memorials.

ALSO, IF YOU SEND ME A MESSAGE AND DON'T INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OR YOUR PROFILE DOESN'T ACCEPT MESSAGES, I WILL NOT MAKE THE PROPOSED EDIT OR CHANGES YOU ARE REQUESTING. THERE MAY BE A REASON I NEED TO CONTACT YOU FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR PROOF OF YOUR REQUEST, AGAIN, JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY SO, DOESN'T MEAN IT IS!!

RE: Charles Bailey, Jr. #100821888
I am sorry, but I do not recall the source of information for final burial place of young Charles William Bailey. I would suggest that you attempt to contact the cemetery to see if they can help you. I is possible some one may have sent me this information. I wish I could be more helpful.
Merry Christmas,
Bob Hague

Bev,

Minerva's name is wrong by the headstone - its Minervia. Her parents names were Foley as per the marriage registry

http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=12149419&Type=Marriage

Her first name was actually Mary - you may want to add that to the bio that's up to you. Same as with John his middle name was Ballard

Best regards,
Keith Meadows

RE: Charles Teague
I see you were able to change his name & add dates - thank you! Yes, my Aunt Ruth is still living there in Beckley. I was able to click on the link for my uncle Ralph David Teague. Several additions & updates for that one - will let his oldest daughter Linda Teague Saddler Pelphrey update with you on that. I have enjoyed seeing these! Thank you for working on it.

RE: Charles Teague
Sorry - I was really just trying to correct my dad's name on Beatrice Walker Teague's memorial - that I think you created. Don't need a new one for my dad.

Dad always said the Waljer book was written by his cousin - & if you also are a cousin of the author then we must be cousins too.

RE: Charles Teague
His legal name is Charlie Lee Teague Jr. - were you able to see the copy of grave finder from Bay Pines National Cenmetery showing his name as well as date of death? My dad has no page to link to - didn't really plan on making one - just wanted my grandmothers to show his legal name & date of death.

Thank you!

Bev,

Looks good - the only note to it is - The Wocie brother... I haven't found out yet if Wocie was a nickname or a misprint in the paper. I'll get back to you on that one.

Thanks again for your help!!

Best regards,
Keith Meadows
