Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in geneology since my junior year in high school. I have been collecting family history since then, along with two aunts of mine- Goldie Stephens and Doris Snyder- who are now deceased.
I am a past member of the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century, Roanoke, Virginia Chapter.
I just recently joined Findagrave and have met several wonderful relatives, such as Mike Hahn and Patty Walls.
My focus has been the Craft, Dollman, Buhrman, and Slusser families of Virginia.

Floyd Reynolds
Are you related to Floyd Reynolds? He was my grandfather and died four years before I was born I am thrilled to see his grave marker and plan to return to Craig Count to find it. I am also related to the Wrights and Caldwell. Any info on them you can provide would be wonderful!

I am a Carper descendent from the line of Ingleside, West Virginia. My grandfather was Rush Payne Carper.

Can I use your headstone photo for this memorial in my ancestry tree? And any others I come across of the Linkenhoker line? I'm building a tree for a friend.
Thanks, Lisa
