Bio Photo The end of a poem written by an old man who had to spend his golden years in a rest home
this is my inspiration to keep going and stay busy.
May I go standing on my feet with dignity still able to think and walk.

A Crabby Old Man

And now and again battered heart swells.
I remember the joys.............. I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and over again.

I think of the years ...all too few......gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact........that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people and see..
Not a crabby old man. Look closer....see........ME!!

I am a retired carpenter,farmer and proud to call my self a Jack of all Trades.

I plant a large garden on my small farm and enjoy the fresh fruit and vegetables that i get for my work.We raise enough produce for canning and have some left over to sell at the local farmers market

Photography has always interested me but I never had the time nor money to pursue it till the Digital camera came out. I have a lot to learn
as my pictures are far from perfect but i am trying
I process the pictures mostly in the winter time and spend my spare time in the summer visiting cemeteries here in Central WV and it is good to know my time is not wasted when I am able to find and photograph a memorial requested by friends or relatives.

Good hunting to all

Sarah See (fag # 15607448)
Rocky, Sarah See was the first wife of Randolph See. She apparently died in the 1860's perhaps in child birth. I have not found a death record for her. Randolph See married Sarah (Talbott) See (Find A Grave # 62997589) around 1870. Please delete the entry for Sarah Sexton See.

Thanks, Lynn

Rocky, Can you check Anthony Rohrbough and Anthony Rohrbough Jr. - numbers 16727133 and 14310117

At one point Senior becomes a brother to Jr. as well as his father..... and I can't quite pinpoint how to fix it.
P.S. Thanks for your patience. Hilda

Hi Leon! Writing about the subject matter. Birth name was Alanda F Miller, born 24 Oct 1880 in Taylor Co., WV and was the daughter of William L (#81559046) and Martha Myers, both of Barbour Co., WV.

"Allie" married Ezra Marshall Bunner on 13 Feb 1902 in Selbyville. They had several children that I know of: Charles F (#48048808), Oscar Curtis (#16551846), Wilbur Foster (#81558766), Clarence Clinton (#81558760) and Cecil Raymond.

William L Taylor
HI Leon
I noticed we have the same person listed in Find a Grave. And it looks like I put a photo on yours. for William L. Taylor and Nancy Davis. I notice you have Randolph in his name, I wondered where that came from? Do you think we could combine our two burials some how? Mine is #Find A Grave Memorial# 13696256 I visited there about 10 years ago or so and took the picture and just wanted to share it with other TAYLOR families.

His has WILLIAM RANDOLPH TAYLOR that's married to Idella May Gould , I wonder if that's where the Randolph came from.

We decend from Valentine & Lucy Taylor, the second child of William & Nancy.

Florence Grim #47647637
Hello Rocky, I have been working on my West Virginia family. While looking at my gg grandmother Helmick, I was attempting to "locate" all of her children. One was named Florence. I did find her death certificate, and wanted to make a Find a grave memorial. But I looked to see if there was already one made.
That is when I found the one you made back in 2010. I thought that was her, but you show a maiden name of "Miller". Everything else matches up. I have the birth, death, and parents information. But I wonder what your thoughts are as to where the "Miller" name came from. Her husband's name was John, and I think that would be the John Grim in Union Cemetery (Find A Grave# 47647670).
Let me know your thoughts, and I could 'attach' a copy of her death certificate to the memorial, if that would be ok with you.
Sincerely, NancyPhillips - Find A Grave member # 47330320
