Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my own family tree since about the Fall of 1999. I started this project by doing transcripts of my own family's cemeteries and taking photos of the stones. I am sure this is how most folks get started doing this kind of thing.

On my father's side, I am researching these names; Campbell, Clouse, Donalson, Edwards, Elam, Engle, Faris/Farris, Gillum/Gilliam, Harris, Hodge/Hodges, Hutton, Keck, Owsley and Riddle at this time. These surnames are from Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, with ties to England, Germany and Scotland.

On my mother's side, I am researching these names; Cantley, Clay, Gibbs, Rorrer/Rohrer and Turner at this time. These surnames are from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, with ties to Switzerland, Germany and England.

You have my permission to use any photos posted here as long as it used for research and not for profit.

RE: Julie E Sturgill
Hi Ed, Disregard my previous message. I don't have any information on Julie Sturgill except I did find a city directory that lists her with Raymond B Sturgill (who is my relative). In the directory, her name is listed as Julia. If I had her surname, I could probably gather more information. Sorry. Debbie

RE: Julie E Sturgill
Hi Ed, I don't have any information on Julie. However, her headstone says Julia? Do you happen to know her surname? If I ever come across a picture, I'll let you know. Debbie

RE: Edward F Wiseman
Memorial # 145454344. There is a picture of his headstone at the Kincaid Cemetery in Kincaid, WV on Kincaid Cemetery Road which is about 1 mile south of Page off Rt. 61. If you are traveling south from Page, the road is on your left. The cemetery is at the end of the road.
