Elaine, Thank You so much for posting the picture of my paternal grandpa's headstone. I never got to meet him as he passed before I was born and being in Florida I didn't know where to begin but West Virginia. Thanks again you'll never know how much this picture means.

I'm thinking she was born in 1839 and not 1889. I got a good close look at her stone. I was wondering about the age of the children.
