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.

Robert Baisden
I sent you an e-mail, but thought I better post here in case you don't get it. As I was looking at Robert Baisden's information, I think they have Robert in the wrong cemetery. When I saw that he was buried in what we always called the S. Nob Baisden Cemetery, I know that is not his family's cemetery where his parents and brothers and sisters are all buried. I think he should be in the Baisden Cemetery at Shegon, which we called the Julius Baisden Cemetery. That is his family's cemetery where all his family are buried. Robert descends from Julius Baisden and all his family are buried there. S. Nob Baisden and Julius Baisden were brothers. Julius Baisden is my great-grandfather. They also have a marker on the Julius Baisden cemetery with Robert Baisden's birth and death dates.

RE: Thanks
Robert Baisden or Rod was my cousin and I worked with him for several years at the community college. I have a friend that lives in that area and I will ask him if he can take a photo of his grave marker. I live in a neighboring county and if he won't do it, I'll do it as soon as I can.

I'm pretty sure I sent this answer to you, but:

RE: Thanks
I have no burial information on his wife Polly I Baisden. The source for their marriage is in Family Search:
"West Virginia Marriages, 1780-1970," database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 9 May 2016), Julius Baisden and P. F. Fowler, 04 May 1886; citing Boone, Boone County, West Virginia, Vol 1 Item 1 P 21, county clerks, West Virginia; FHL microfilm 570,580.

I have in my family tree that Julius Baisden was born February 1866 in Logan County, West Virginia, United States.

RE: John Wesley Matney, JR and wife
You are very welcome. As I was searching Ancestry, his name came up and I checked the dates, and it was them. I feel we are all here to help one another close the loopholes.
Happy Mother's Day.

RE: Arlen
You are welcome. I noticed that Elena Marcum Chafin was not on findagrave, but I did not add her... I will leave that up to you to do if you want.
