Bio and Links
Bio Photo My love of cemeteries began when I was a young girl and my great-grandmother took me up on the hill to the cemetery. She called it the "family cemetery", and I have called it that ever since. I believe we can honor our loved ones even after they are gone from us.

For you:

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace."
Numbers 6:24-26

Hello Pam
I have started my quest of my geneology and realized Ruby White and Dallas Carpenter are my paternal grandparents. I would like to talk with you and hope to gain some knowledge in what you may know. Thanks.

RE: Samuel Marks
Thanks, Pam!! I'm trying to put together what I've found so far. As I said, I've just started with Dain's family so I know I've only cracked the surface. I have found a marriage record for a Hepsie E Jones (nee Marks) marrying a William Cooper in July 1888. I believe this Hepsie is also the Hepizah listed on findagrave and the Ellen H listed on the 1900 and 1910 census.

From the marriage record, it appears that Ellen/Hepsie was married prior to marrying W.Cooper to someone with the last names Jones. I have not yet found any record of her married to someone with the last name Derear as you mentioned.

Whenever you get a chance to talk to your mother-in-law, that would be great. No rush. I'm not at a dead end.

Samuel Marks
Hi Pam,

You have a note (memorial? sorry, I don't know all the terminology on findagrave) on Samuel Marks' page that he is your great-great grandfather. I am doing some genealogy research for my boyfriend, Dain. I believe Samuel is Dain's 3x great grandfather through Samuel's daughter Ellen Marks. The findagrave page has her name as Hepizah Ellen Marks. I have only seen her name as Ellen H Marks however, I have only just started and have just researched the Census reports over the years.

Are you able to verify that this Hepizah Ellen Marks married a William Cooper and had a daughter named Edna Ellen Cooper?

I'd love any other info you have on the family but it's probably a lot.

Thanks, Jennifer

Answering your request
Hi, you had submitted a request for the Hein Cemetery in Putnam Co, WV some time ago to my old profile. I apologize that I hadn't answered you back, but I lost my log in info. Here are the instructions that I have:

Located in Heizer Creek, the first gravel road on left past the bridge, .2 miles on the W.R. Hein farm; go through the cattle gate near the red shed and up the hill.

These directions are what is written in the publication called "Putnam County Cemeteries" (Addendum), published in 2001 by the Upper Vandalia Historical Society.

Since it was written 14 years ago it's possible landmarks have changed, and there is no notes whether this is private property.

Good luck!

PS. If you go there and you happen to find a grave for any Withrows, I'd love a picture!

RE: Lucinda Kingery
Hi Pam,
Thank you for the offer of the death certificate of Lucy's son. I did find it on Lucy isn't the problem, it's proving her parents. Bailey is such a common name and by the 1880 census, Lucy's mother is already dead. Regina is a step mom. Also, they (DAR) expect a Death Cert. from a 1943 death and don't understand why I don't have it.

I already have 7 approved DAR ancestors but this is the only one one from the Gilliam/Bailey branch and it us just so darn irritating to be stuck....unable to find a 1943 document.

I submitted all the records that I had found, I thought that I had done a pretty good job of presenting circumstantial evidence to prove the line but the application was rejected.

Oh well, the hunt continues!

Your California Cousin,

RE: Lucinda Kingery
Oh my! It sounds like Lucinda's death certificate might not ever be found. Would you ask Lenore if she knows if there was ever a birth certificate for Lucinda or anything to prove her parents.

Thank You Again,
