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.

Robert Chilson Patterson
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.

RE: Cedelia Farley
I know what you mean, the same thing happens to me when I use my phone for pictures. I always open them up in Paint then Select All then Save. That's the easiest way I've found to do it with phone pics.

Previous messsage, RE: Cedelia Farley
Sorry about the number in the middle of your name. I did a copy/paste of Willard's memorial number and I thought I put it in the body of the message and when it didn't appear I copy/pasted again. Now I see where it went the first time!!!

Cedelia Farley
Hi94826509 Brittney,
Thanks for her headstone picture. Can you also load it to her spouse as well, Willard #94826509?

Also, I received an email that you fulfilled my request for a picture of Edna Farley but when I look on her memorial there isn't anything there. Did you happen to get one of hers as well?

Thanks again,

Bev Vera

Lona Hendrick Pitzer
Thanks for getting back to me. The death certificate is typed. I think it is probably a mistake that Alice was entered instead of Susan. Since all else is correct. I am going to accept that as being the case.

Memorial# 109664075
Hi Brittany, I enjoyed reading your bio and I have a question. I am a little confused about Lona Jane Hedrick Pitzer. There are birth, marriage and death records that don't make a lot of sense. These records are all on the West Virginia Culture Web site. The birth record has her name a Laura J Hedrick - parents Matthew A and Susan F Hedrick. Marriage record has her name Lona J Hedrick groom Frank H Pitzer and parents names M.A. and S.F. Hedrick. and her death record has her name Lona Jane Pitzer. Father Mathew A Hedrick and Mother Alice Allen. Informant is Frank H Pitzer. I found a marriage record for Matthew A Hedrick and Susan Frances Smith but not for Matthew A Hedrick and Alice Allen. Could Matthew have been married twice?

Thanks, Jeanette

Photo of George and Irene Hedrick headstone
Brittany, I really appreciate your photo of the gravestone for George M. Hedrick and his wife Lizzie (Oak Grove Cemetery in Summers Co., WV)! I was hoping the stone would clear up the matter of which was his true date of birth (I've found several), but it turns out that the dates inscribed for him on the stone don't even match his death certificate...even his year of death is different from the certificate!

Many thanks for taking time to photograph their stone!
