Bio and Links
Bio Photo I begin my bio with Colossians 4:6 - Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer every man. I believe this and strive to practice this well - so, rudeness, passive-aggressive behavior and angry attitudes are not welcome. There is no place for this in Findagrave.

I have a number of things going on so I can't do timely edits on memorials. I am willing to transfer most of the memorials that I have created since most that I have done in Mt Rose and Greenlawn Cemeteries are not kin to me - if I have entered a family member or relative of yours (no matter how distant) and you'd like me to transfer the memorial to you, please send me your Findagrave ID# and I will transfer as soon as possible. It is not about numbers with me, it's about reunited families that somehow link us all together. However, I might not be ready to transfer some memorials of my and my wife's direct lines (Burgett, Abbott, Carney, Tweedlie and some related branches).

Also, memorials are important to all of us...for that reason, I think requests for corrections should be polite - if you want something corrected, please provide the information that needs to be added or corrected - not an impersonal/curt note like 'Dates are shown in photo of marker attached to this memorial'.

I am slowly working on memorials in Mt Rose and Greenlawn cemeteries in Moundsville, WV with Marshall County Contributor. When I uploaded the names in 2009, I messed up and the dates didn't load like they should have - so I am slowly getting them filled in :)

Also, if I have placed a death certificate on a memorial that I transfer to you and you don't care for it, no problem...I'll remove the death certificate. I don't care to hear any rantings about how it's such an abomination.

Carlton aka Carl

Susan Mary Crowe in Greenlawn Cemetery (marker 56) was my grandmother. She was born in Clarksburg, WV and died in Moundsville, WV in 1950. I think you have confused her grave with someone else's. Thank you.

James W Alexander 37628021
Dear Carl, Not sure who this is as I didn't find him in the West Virginia death records, but he is not the father of Ralph Alexander who died in France in WWI. That James W. Alexander was born May 28 1854, and died Nov 7 1940 in Moundsville, and is buried in Linwood Cemetery, Blaine, Belmont County, Ohio. Ralph is buried in France but there is a cenotaph in Linwood Cemetery.

Mt Zion cemetery
Hi Carl,
I was wondering how to find out who manages or knows who is buried in this cemetery and where they are buried if there is no marker.

I found Thomas Blake stone and it is pretty new considering he died in 1920s. But as I was looking for Sarah, his wife, I uncovered in the mud the actual marker that is a flat stone with T.B. on it. It is 2 gravesites over from the new stone.

I am wondering if they covered Sarah's marker with his new stone?

Hi Carl, Thank you for putting Kristen Anne Wood on Find a Grave. I am her aunt. I believe we have a Carney in our family. I will have to go back and find her, and we also have a Lemley in our tree also. How are we related to you. Thank You, Pam. Also Alan Lewis is my second cousin.

Wonder where you got the birth and death dates for Jefferson Madison Price, Mount Rose Cemetery.
I left a note under him, I have him born 18 Jul 1813 and death 30 May 1903, from "The Descendants of Arjalon Price Jr", by Dr. Kenneth Price. Wonder if you could have read a tombstone wrong.
I don't have original source, but do find him in the 1900 census in Marshall county with his daughter Sarah Thornburg Price "Thonia". This census does say his birth is Jul 1813.

You asked if I could add the middle name Bennett to Find A Grave #76462493. May I ask what your source is?

RE: Mary Carroll
Wow. My mom (Alice) is one of Mary & Warner (Buck) Carroll's 15 children. I have been doing a little research on this side of the family, to no avail. It halts at David and Betty Woods on Franks side. And, I have absolutely no info on the Evans side. I have Zeke Evans and Sarah J Hall as Sarah Evans parents.

RE: Hey cousin :)
Hi Carl !!

Thank you! By the way, my email is wvnurse@hotmail.Com if you care to communicate that way. I don't know if I gave it to you before.

One of my Schwing relatives, who doesn't live in WV said he thinks there is a Schwing buried in a Moundsville cemetery with a headstone that only has the name Schwing on it. No first name. I am wondering if it could be in Mount Rose and might possibly be the brother of Theodore Schwing. Do you happen to know of such a stone?

Hope you are doing well !! Thanks again!

RE: Harry and Laura V. Carney
I have lots of pics of Harry and Laura. We were very close. I was wondering about others in the family. Anyway, yes, I agree about "Bill". Story we have is that he went out for cigarettes and never ever came back.

You have the correct Mary Jane and Earnest. I believe she's buried in Morgantown.
