Bio Photo Before telling me I've created a duplicate please make sure you actually added a grave not a tombstone.If that's the case you should delete yours.Just check the date you added and compare with date of death.If there is no date of death on a tombstone don't assume they have died.Many people prepare in advance.I've seen a few of my relatives on FAG that are very much alive and well...I live in Southern Preston County in West Virginia.I'd be happy to try to find and take pictures of requested graves in my area.I may already have them in my files. I'll be happy to transfer those I've added provided they are not my own relatives.If I have one of your relatives that are unrelated to me,including distant relatives,I'd be happy to transfer.I am just happy to help others in their search for the final resting places of family.If I've added a photo to a memorial I may have other photos in that cemetery as well.Please ask.I wish you the best of luck in your search for your roots!

Christina (Fortney) Pyles Field #77581017
Do you have any documentation of her marriage to Hunter Pyles? And, that Hunter Pyles name was "Hunter Thomas Pyles"? ]'History of Preston Co'] lists her marriage to John Field.

The Fortney Family book [I have excerpts] lists Christina b. abt 1795 as dau of Daniel Fortney & Barbara Pickenpaugh.

I have seen elsewhere that Nancy Fortney was dau of Peter Fortney & Anna Elizabeth Hahn. However, the Fortney Family book lists her as m. James Cobun with 6 children, at least. And, I have found no reference that she also m. Hunter (Thomas?) Pyles. Daniel Fortney & Barbara Pickenpaugh had a dau. Nancy b. 1797 d.1807.

If you want you can email me at grovesdel@gmail.com. Thanks!

That's great, Patty Jo!

Thanks for taking photos, when you can.

Did you find the location of the Peter Fansler graveyard?
There's a bunch of great-grandparents there, too!

Hope the trip turned out well!

Thanks for everything!

Moore Family Cemetery, Tucker Co WV
Hello - I have some relatives there [ex. Robert Waugh Knapp # 54648156] and see that you took photos of the cemetery. However, there are no GPS coordinates or directions and wondering if you can provide either or both. Thanks!

Arnold and Susanna Bischoff Schaefer
Hello, I am searching for graves for my 4x grandparents Arnold and Susanna Bischoff Schaefer. The Aurora Documents from the St Paul's Lutheran church in Preston Co indicates they registered their children there between 1814 to 1818. Arnold was also christened there on 19 June 1803 at 16.

Susanna's maiden name is Bischoff and one of their children had sponsors who were Heinrich and Caterina Bischof who are buried in the Carmel Cemetery. They are probably related to Susanna.

Arnold and Susanna Bischoff Schaefer's son Jacob W Shaffer eventually moved to Barbour CO where he raised his family who are closer descendents to me. Jacob W is buried in the Mt Cassel Church of the Brethren Cemetery near Valley Furnace.

Schaefer may be spelled Shaffer, Shafer, or Shaver.

If you can help me locate these graves, I would appreciate it.

Wilmoth Cemetery
Hi Patricia,

Would it be possible for you to take a photo of Pvt. Noah Lunsford's gravestone? He is my great-great grandfather.

He's interred in the Wilmoth Cemetery and has a Civil War Marker. He was a private in the VA 31st.

For the record, here is his missing Find A Grave information.
Noah Lunsford
BIRTH 28 DEC 1837 Pendleton County, (W) Virginia, USA
DEATH 14 FEB 1916 Bartow, Pocahontas County, West Virginia, United States

More information about him is available on the Nancy Fansler Public Member Tree on Ancestry.

Thanks so much, Patricia!
Nancy
