Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interests in genealogy lies with my family's roots in southern West Virginia. Walkers on my mothers side and Hatchers on my fathers side. My cousin wrote a 700 plus page book of the Walker History going back to 1734. I took an interest of photographing headstones of ancestors in the cemeteries I was familiar with and then it spread out to larger ones in Beckley and now I am trying to find EVERY cemetery named in this book. I am compiling a photo album of headstone pictures and Find A Grave printouts and cross referencing them to the page they appear on in the Walker History book. I will never ask for a transfer of a memorial that I am not related to the person. I hope one of these days my grandson and future generations to come will appreciate our efforts.
Thanks to Find A Grave volunteer photogs I have received headstone pictures as far away as California and Oregon. Once, while visiting my in-laws in southern Texas, I went to Ft. Sam Houston and found the grave of my third cousin that was killed in WWII. I have a cousin, Sheila Lewis Underwood, that has created our family tree on Tribal Pages using this same Walker history book and in collaberation with her our childrens' childrens' children can look back on our history in awe.
Other family names in my genealogy are Lilly, Meadows, Wallace, Woods, Daniels, among others.


Before you send an edit request for names, dates, or links, please provide proof backing up your information. I won't change or add any information on my memorials without official documentation, such as; marriage license, death certificates or newspaper obituaries. Just because you say so, doesn't mean it is. Please provide documentation to prove your edit requests. I don't particularly trust census reports to be adequate proof, so if you could, please provide documents listed above. I'm into this for accurate proof on my memorials, not for numbers where census reports are used to create memorials with problems, just to get a number on my profile.

RE: Adam Whitley
Adam Whitely is my grandfather. On the1910 census for Piney Creek NC, you will find the brothers living with their stepmother, Minnie Cearly Whitley. Their father is Earnest Whitley, mother Virginia Sturgill. (Whitely spelled differently throughout the generations, until the Whitely spelling now.

I just checked & Virginia's husband and son are both in Maple Grove. I made memorials for them both in 2011 & 2012. I added the gravestone picture to Virginia's memorial. Cheryl Slone
