|Bio and Links|
from Upper Tract, West Virginia|
Two years ago I had no idea where most of my ancestors were buried. I googled my g-g-grandfathers Isaac Alt and Alfred Kimble and found them on this site. I thought I might be able to link my family to them. That's how I got started. I had my sister go with me to show me where the Shreve and Kimble graveyards were in Smoke Hole. I must have caught some kind of bug in those graveyards that I can't get over. I'm adding the graveyards in the Upper Tract area. Most of them are not my relatives so if any one would like a transfer or link made just let me know. Feel free to copy any photos on my memorials for personal use. If added to another site, it would be nice to state where it was found. Let me know if you find any mistakes for I know they will be some.
I would to thank Jennie Hott for asking me to help record the updates for the cemeteries in the Upper Tract,Kline, Smoke Hole area for the new Pendleton County grave register that the historical Society has done. Also thanks to Denton Alt and Jack Hedrick for taking me and finding the cemeteries.
The following poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer.
Your tombstone now,stands among the rest; Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care, It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist, You died before I was born.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse, Entirely not our own.
Dear Grandfather, the place you filled One hundred years ago.
Spreads out among the ones you left, Who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved, I wander if you knew,
That someday I would find this spot, And come and visit you.

My many THANKS for posting a photo of the cemeatary as well as my 2nd great grandfathers grave Solomon Lough. I really appreciate it. Do you happen to know where Francis Marion Calhoun is buried? I joined my local Sons of Confederate Veterans camp under him for he was the brother of my 2nd great grandfather Winfield Scott Calhoun. I would love to see a photo as well of his grave. Thanks again and take care...Tom

Hi Again Richard,
I was also wondering if you would happen to know of anyone in your neck of the woods that may help me locate a photo of Solomon H Lough as well as 1st Lt John C Calhoun. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.
|Thomas Krebs||Winfield Scott Calhoun|
Thanks for sharing the photos of Winfield and his wife and sons as well as the grave. Winfield is my 2nd great grandfather and had some of the photos you posted, but not of the grave. It was a real joy to see his grave. My wife's mothers side of the family is related to the Alt's as well and have attended many Alt / Kimble family reunions in the past. I have my 2nd great grand fathers Solomon H Lough's Civil War discharge paper that was signed by Captain Isaac Alt. Thanks again.
