Bio Photo Hello everyone,
I started working on the McVey family tree back in 1979. After the death of my grandfather, James Preston McVey (64288185), my father came into possession of an old humpback trunk that contained a civil war flag, a couple of old double barrel shotguns, tin type photos, and the Family bible. The bible contained the birth dates of my Great-grandfather and his brothers, that was the "seed" that got me started.
I had no idea at the time how addictive genealogy could be.
I ran across Find-a-Grave during a recent research jag. It has become one of my favorite resources. I've always been an avid photographer, so I have plenty of photos from past visits to family cemeteries, I'm attempting to add them as well as the newer ones I have visited.
I hope my additions are as helpful to your research as yours have been to me.

Thank you
Thanks so much for those two transfers. I do most of my work in Raleigh County so if you see any of my memorials that are kin to you let me know, and I will transfer to you. Thanks again.

Would you consider transferring this memorial to me. She is my great grandmother and I've been working on this line since I've been a member of findagrave. You found her before I did. As you can see, I've been linking her to her family. Thank you Robin

Would you consider transferring this memorial to me. She is my great aunt and I've been working on this line since I've been a member of Findagrave. I know she does not fall into the guidelines for transfer, but I would love to manage the care of this memorial. Thank you Robin

McVey Old Mountain
You might recall I came across some earlier death certs indicating McVey Old Mountain was known earlier as Fry Cemetery... not to be confused with other Fry Cemeteries.
Researching more, have determined the land the cemetery is on was at one time owned by Jake Fry, the son of Joseph and Jane Hedrick Fry. McVey's owned adjoining land later at some point.
So I think we can with confidence modify the cemetery description to:
(aka Fry Cemetery, aka McVey Cemetery)

George Stone at Mc Vey
Given his birth year and the fact that his sibling and father served in CSA,
I think I shall put some effort into thinking George Stone may have also served in CSA.
Brother Samuel was just about old enough
to have served as drummer boy or later in war as soldier.
