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.

Sorry - I meant to ask on my last message before I clicked send - how do you fit in with the Kessingers/Kissingers?

I've been working on a few of those myself. My grandmother was a Kessinger and I have 5 generations of my family in the Kessinger Family Cemetery in Camp Creek WV.

RE: Deborah "Debbie" Hinton Allen (#99966727)
Good evening Brittany. I received your message regarding Mrs. Allen's possible gravesite. I apologize if it seems like I gave you a "bum steer", so-to-speak.

I did a little more searching in the Find A Grave cemetery database, and the one that most closely matches the cemetery mentioned in the link I sent you is this one .....

Allen Green Cemetery
Monroe County
West Virginia

Here are two more listed on the same database page that I pulled up (these are not as close a match as the one mentioned above, however) .....

Allen Broyles Cemetery
Monroe County
West Virginia

Allen Park
Monroe County
West Virginia

I thank you ma'am for your time, and I hope you have a great rest-of-the-week.

Queen Elizabeth White Meadows Kinney

I sent through a link for a memorial you had as Elizabeth Meadows Kinney. I put her belated birth certificate on her memorial as I didn't think anyone would buy the name.....

You want to leave her name as Elizabeth and change the maiden name to White Meadows and leave the last name as Kinney and then just put a note in the bio about the full name....

She was actually married at least two more times. There's a marriage record out there where she married a Robert McClelland at age 21 and there she was listed as divorced.

So the name is really Queen Elizabeth White ??? McClelland Meadows Kinney

Thanks for your help!!

Best regards,
Keith Meadows

Your gravemarker photo is very nice.

Please identify the cemetery, i.e. the memorial BIO indicates 'unknown family cemetery'.

Please reply to GOLDWING94JIM@AOL.COM and to memorial owner/

RE: Marria E. Price McCreery - 95085734
Thanks for reply. No Hurry . I'm almost positive it's her . All my research says it's her and the names are so close Evin / Edwin and Elithia / Alithia as parents and that she married a J. McCreery . Right time and place . Have a good day .

Marria E. Price McCreery - 95085734
Hello my name is Robert C. Patterson and am tracing family history. I think this is a relative of mine but need some information . I'm looking for a Maria Prince McCreery whose parents are Edwin and Alethia Prince and she married a J. McCreery . I have a strong feeling it's her . Where did you find the names of her parents and the spelling ? If it is my relative I would like to request a transfer for I'm tracing family for a grandmother as her final wish from me . Our McCreery Clan came from Hinton and Beckley , West Virginia . I just didn't want to create two pages for the same person . I have a lot of family info and access to some Pictures. Thanks for your time Robert C. Patterson.
