Iddings family links
Al,

I have your request to connect children of Henry & Martha Iddings to their parents. Problem is, there are duplicate memorials in duplicate cemeteries. Those in Iddings Cemetery, Terry's Fork were created Sept. 10, 2012. There are three memorials in that cemetery listing. Those in Iddings Cemetery were created earlier, Mar. 19, 2012. I did not create either of these memorials.

I photographed and entered memorials for most of the latter in June, 2013. I began with the earliest Find A Grave cemetery and was not aware of the duplicate records listed for Iddings Cemetery, Terry's Fork at the time. There are now 158 memorials in Iddings Cemetery.

I would suggest that we link your Iddings family relatives to the earlier memorials in the larger cemetery data base.

Enora Whitenac and Clyde Chambers
Hello Al,

You sent an edit to add Roy Clyde Chambers as spouse to Enora's memorial but she was born in 1870 and he was born in 1910. I did a lot of research and only found Delaware Merit as spouse and he is buried next to her. Found no connection to Roy at all. Could you tell me where the info connects Roy to Enora?

I am out of town for a few weeks but will check messages.

Thanks,
Connie

If you haven't already, I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

Thanks for any flowers you have strewn through the virtual burial grounds for our departed.

Goff Family
Thank you for the information you've provided on the Goff family.

My great, great grandmother was Sarah Lucy Margaret "Sallie" Goff daughter of George Washington Goff and wife Sarah King. Sallie lived from 1868 to 1961.

Sallie's first husband was Manderville Cook son of Ephraim Cook and Jane Martin. They had five children; George Madison (my great grandfather), Lewis Houston, Oris, Jackie Joe and Mary Etta. After Manderville died Sallie married Luther Pettry and had Grace Lou and Delva Mae.

I have more information on the family members which left Roanoke and settled in Summers Co., WV.

Thank you,
Carol Pack Urban
