Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in White Sulphur Springs, Greenbrier County, West Virginia, with my husband and 3 children. Family history/Genealogy is my passion!! Currently I am finishing the photos for Old Stone Presbyterian Church in Lewisburg, WV, and I have just begun photographing Rosewood Cemetery in Lewisburg. I do ask that you be patient with me. I photograph the headstones and create memorials quickly, but I also do research to post as much information as I can find for each memorial. And that takes time. So if anyone has information to contribute or has a family member they want transferred please let me know. As soon as I am finished uploading memorials I will start on the headstone photos.

Aaron Taylor Gregory Find a Grave Memorial no. 107334485

I just found the above person....he is another connection to the family I previously wrote about. His wife, Mary Elizabeth BROWN b.31 Oct 1860,is a daughter of William K. BROWN and Margaret Amanda BROWN nee CRIST (your Find A Grave Memorial no. 106419465).

Happy to share any info!

Jacob H. CRIST Find A Grave Memorial- Transfer request (possibly)

I will probably send an email as well just in case. You have the memorials for Jacob H. Crist Find A Grave Memorial 105867433 and his wife and children and one grandchild.

They are all distant relatives of mine. Are they your family? If not,maybe you could transfer them to me?

If you are related I would be happy to share any info I have...I only have a little. In fact, what was here added to what I had.

This CRIST family is descended from Jost (in America Yost or John)SCHWAB and his wife Anna Katharina Wolfhardt. In the U.S. the surname is usually spelt Swope. From there it goes back through the Wolfhardts to Ulrich RENZ III who originated in modern day Baden-Wuerttemberg. Ulrich is our common ancestor: he is my
13th great-grandfather! So it is quite distant- I am lucky to be able to take that line back to almost the middle ages. It is quite rare- but they held official positions for the nobility and were enobled themselves, and that is why there are records for them! If they were commoners there would probably be none lol!

There are a lot of memorials on find a grave for descendants. I am trying to get most of the ones from non-family members into my control so I can link them. Then those that are in family members control we might have to keep transferring them to one another until they are all linked! I don't believe you can link to people not in your control.

Look forward to hearing from you

Hi Leslie;

Am hoping that you remember me if not oh well.
You and I have duplicated George Sr. if he is a relative of yours then I can remove mine that I put on Find A Grave 2 years before yours. I have no problem if you are able to add data for him.

RE: Green hill cemetery
Hi Ms. Acord
Since you have a picture of my sister's headstone, I can see you found the cemetery. The information you have on your memorial is incorrect. Her funeral was held at Rhema Christian Center, I think is in Lewisburg. I had not had a chance to add the headstone picture yet to my memorial, been researching the family history for the last two years. The picture you have is much better than the one I have, because I have a wide shot with my mother and my other sister and niece, as you probably noticed when you were taking pictures. Don't really want to take it down as I put each one of the memorials out on this site for her children. Sorry it took me so long to reply.
