Bio and Links
I got hook on genealogy after talking to my Grandfather (George E. Deskins) about the "Good Old Days" and how he had a story about everyone and everything. I started by researching only my immediate family but it has escalated to years of research, meeting wonderful people, hearing amazing stories and with much help from other dedicated researchers. After joining FAG it keeps getting better and better.
I hope that all of realize that we all are related and should treat everyone the way we want to be treated.
My main research is on all the Deskin, Deskins and Deskines lines, but I also do Jackson and Matney
This wonderful tool of FAG is out of this world, I want to thank all the fabulous people that have help me in so many ways. I would not of had the opportunity to meet many of my relatives, as well as others if not for FAG. There is no way I can ever thank many of you, researcher before me, people willing to share info as well as photos and their lives.
I would also like to make a point, this is not a genealogical site, but it gives us a wonderful opportunity to connect our relatives, showing really how small our world is, so I hope that some that feel they don't want to transfer for whatever reason and this is your right, perhaps think that MOST of us, do not do it for numbers but because we appreciate the honor of caring for our relatives like I do. When I hear about my relatives even thou I have never met them, it's like knowing them. Hope this makes sense.

I had pulled the request and saw the note that someone had walked the area with no success. I like looking for the ones that are hard to find. Anyway, I contacted the cemetery and they verified there is no stone. I sent a request for edit, adding the plot number and a note that there is no marker as of May/2015. I see your request is now gone.

Katherine Deskins
You requested a photo of Katherine Deskins headstone. Are you sure she has passed? There is no death date on the stone so I'm wondering if she is still alive. And F.A.G. don't want people posting memorials for the living. For obvious reasons. I took a picture of the stone as her husband has passed, but i'm gonna wait on posting it to hers until I hear from you. Thanks!

Margie Christine Fleming Deskin
Good Evening To You:

First, I would like to say that Margie Christine (Fleming) Deskin died January 5, 1998. And yes My Aunt & I attended her funeral. Yes it has been awhile, now I will look up her death notice and her husband and their son. I will get back with you on this matter.

It has been awhile since I have any contact with her family, since I am a direct FLEMING FAMILY like Margie Christine but I will do everything that I can to try and help out.


Blessings In Christ Always,

RE: Elizabeth Victoria Marcum Deskins
I have a copy of death certificates for Elizabeth Marcum & Thomas B. Deskins. Both say they are buried in Deskins Cemetery.
Also have a copy of their son Thomas B. Deskins death certificate who died in 1957 which states he is buried in Deskins but his headstone application states that he is buried in Marcum Cemetery, Kirk, W.Va. I would guess that if the military stone was to be sent to Marcum cemetery, then that is where the son is buried.
Hope that this helps. Marjorie (MGlazeHart).

Hi Sue, I have researched Laura Brewster and I can't find anything about her. If you can find any additional information on her, I can transfer her to you. Thanks, Patty Greene
