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 wanting to do 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

Event Date: 1935
Event Place: Mercer, West Virginia, United States

Sue, all the census records and marriage records I have found for this guy and Rachel Harper say his name is Jacob, not James. I've sent you a correction, but maybe you should request a photo of his stone as well as Rachel's.

Bessie Whitt

Yes, She was a Hess, married a Hess.

Their suggestion:
I want to make sure I am reading the post correctly, Bessie maiden name was Hess and her first husband was a Hess, is this correct?

RE: Questionable
You are definitely the expert:) I should have asked your opinion before getting all excited. How do you take down a posting? I sent a message to Harold but can't figure how to remove it.
