Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years. After I retired in 1985, my husband and I made many trips to Virginia and Pennsylvania searching for information on our families. Now I can sit at my computer and find most of the same information; although walking through cemeteries where ancestors are buried and going through old courthouse records was worth the trips. Now that I'm 85 and can't walk as well as I used to, I'm grateful for the computer.

My husband died in 2008 and is buried in Sunset Memorial Park in South Charleston, WV. I have been looking up obituaries on those buried in Sunset and adding their names, if they are not already listed. If I have listed anyone you are related to or want to manage, just let me know and I'll transfer the names. Just click on the Edit button.

If you see any errors I've made (fact or typos), please let me know, I will appreciate it.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Elisabeth Kuhn
Thomas Leo McCoy Hurricane WV.
Hi Dolores. My Name is Elisabeth Kuhn (Arrick is my maiden name). I have reason and documentation to believe that Thomas McCoy was my actual grandfather. It has recently been revield that my grandmother and Thomas were married and had at least 2 children together. My grandmother was then re-married to Roy W. Arrick. And within the past 3 week, my aunt and my dad have discovered that they were legally adopted by Roy Arrick and raised as their children. In my Grandmothers' mid stages of dementia, some facts have come out that check out as truths. I'm mainly interested in trying to talk to someone in the family primarily for medical history (as I have four young girls). Would you happen to know how I can look up anyone of his daughters? Or grand children? Or his brother Leon? I think he coached a high school football team? Or I could have the wrong Leon. I'd just love to get some answers and maybe learn a bit of my biological family history. If you can help at all in piecing together some family history that would be so very appreciated! Thank you for your website! I wouldnt have known where else to start if it wasn't for you.

RE: Mrs Teresa Tassone

Thank you so much. I entered Vincenzo with DOB and DOD. His Find-A-Grave number is 154575053. I linked Teresa on his. I asked my mother-in-law if she knew why her obit said Sunset and she had no idea. It shouldn't have. Thanks again!

Mrs Teresa Tassone
Hi Delores. Thank you for your work on this site and the obituary postings. I would like to request a change. You have Mrs Teresa Tassone in Sunset Memorial Cemetery in South Charleston. She is actually buried in Montgomery Memorial Park, London WV. This is my husbands grandmother and the dates and family all match so we are sure it's her. Not sure why the obit had Sunset but will ask family and find out. Teresa is buried along side her husband, Vincenzo in London WV. Thanks Delores! Tammy Leftwich-Holstine

Helen Marie Knuckles Dent
Helen Marie Knuckles Dent memorial number is 119027644 and I was wondering if you would connect Helen to her Mother Helen Knuckles memorial #95968208 and Helen is buried at the Fox Hill Cemetery Kanawha Co WV. Helen Knuckles is the daughter of Frances Marion & Sarah Jane Parsons Knuckles and their daughter Helen was never married. Any questions ask. Angie
