Bio and Links
Bio Photo Well you know my name, here's my story. My family lines run throughout Summers, Greenbrier, Monroe, and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Sampson and Cumberland counties in North Carolina.

I'm twenty one years old and I began getting into family history around 2009. Little did I know what I would get into and how much information I would find. I love cemeteries and finding out family history that nobody really knew before.

I began with tracing the Wykle family line which then tied into the Erskine and Morgan sides. I have recently followed the Browning line, the Taylor and Spell lines, and the Harvey and Ellison lines. I also work on a few lines for my friends.

Family names: Wykle (Various spellings), Erskine, Kessinger, Morgan. // Browning, Meade, Estep. // Taylor, Spell, Blue. // Harvey, Ellison.

I did maintain and add just family memorials but then I started branching out and covering complete cemeteries in Summers County. Also through genealogy, I have made a lot of great connections.

If I have up a picture and you want it removed, let me know and I will gladly remove it. Also, if you have any photo requests in Summers County or surrounding areas, I will do my best to get it.

* 8/11/13 - Work is keeping me very busy lately so I haven't added many memorials in months. If you leave a message on my page, I'll get around to seeing it. If you have a change for me, my email comes to my phone and I'll update as soon as possible. Thanks.

RE: Wrong graveyard
I wasn't saying you didn't know where your grandparents were buried, I wasn't being a smartass I just wanted you to know that it was listed wrong and that someone else had listed them in the right graveyard but they hadn't done it right like you did being as how you were family. And now Roscoe, Stella and Virgil are listed in there twice.
They spelled Virgil's name Virgle. I was just trying to help!!!!!!!! And even though they're your grandparents they are family to me, as well as you. Lol

Wrong graveyard
I just wanted to let you know someone else has already listed them in The graveyard in Ronceverte but it isn't like you have them and they have even misspelled Virgil's name, I don't know how to fix it but I hope you can. Generations to come won't know where to look for them, but I can verify that they are buried in Ronceverte not Alderson. I not only live in Ronceverte but I have seen the graves myself and I also have the cemetery book for the Irish Corner which has the listings for Greenbrier Regular Baptist Church. You can order the book from the North House in Lewisburg just go on line and go to the North House site. Sorry about this but I figured you wanted it to be right I know I would.

Wrong graveyard
Virgil and Essie Wykle and Roscoe and Stella Wykle are listed as being in Greenbrier Baptist Church in Alderson when in fact they are buried in Greenbrier Regular Baptist Church on Morgan Hollow Rd. in Ronceverte.

Hi Brittany, I just transferred this memorial back to you. I just found that you had transferred it to me a few minutes ago. For some reason, the notification went to my "Junk" folder. I copied and pasted the link from the email that I had sent to you and it's working. Thanks for your help.

If you want, you can transfer it to me. I'll set it up and transfer it back, then you can learn how to do it.

Brittany, thanks for fulfilling my request for Icy Meadows. Turns out she isn't the Icy I was looking for. However, someone else will surely benefit from your efforts. Thanks for your work. Pat Meadows

RE: Wykle Family
It's probably the same one I have of the whole Charles Masters Morgan family then, she's on the end and you can't hardly see her.

Wykle Family
I was wondering what kin you are to the Wykle's,
because Merrit and Audrey Wykle are my grandparents. As well as Ida Susan Morgan Wykle and Rosa Morgan Baker are my great-grandmothers.
And I was also wondering if you'd ever came across a picture of Ida. I have one of Grandma Rosa which I placed on here and I have a picture of their Father Charles Masters Morgan but I have never seen a picture of Grandpa Merrit's mother Ida.
Basil Wykle is my father.
