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 documentation, just because you say so.

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: Cedelia Farley
Yes, I got one for her too but it uploaded sideways from my phone. I'll have to get to a computer to reload it properly. I don't know why it is going on sideways because it is straight in my files. I'll get it done soon for you.

RE: Nancy Wood Hatcher-Birchfield Cemetery
I am probably not related but dug the photo up for someone else. I don't recognize even where she would fit in. I have 4 pages of trees on Ancestry for patrons and such.

Hi Bev
Not trying to stick my nose in, but I saw where you said you had used the EDIT tab to send a link but it wasn't done so you reposted it on their wall. If you use any of the following options under the EDIT tab, there is a new process where the edit is done automatically in 21 days if not accepted or declined by the manager.

Birth/death date, birth/death place
Relationship (parent and spouse links)
Name
Plot or GPS
Marker transcription

The next choice of 'Suggest any other correction or addition' is the old-style edit that should be submitted to site admins after 30 days if not done. The new process saves a ton of time and eliminates a lot of redundancy, but there was no site-wide notification of the roll out. Have a great day!

I posted it because the dates were more legible, but I will remove it as you requested.

RE: Viola Pettry-Blue Ridge
You are welcome. I was there looking for ancestors prior to Memorial Day and if I see a marker with "Pettry", or "Jarrell" I will photograph it. I have Pettry ancestors.
I have done a little bit of work at Blue Ridge. I dont live far from the cemetery and if there are any markers that I can photo for you, I would be glad to do it.
That is a big cemetery and I was there yesterday and looked for about 45 minutes for someone and never did find them. I guess I will need to get a map.
