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

Alice B Simon
Hi Rocky, Thank you for posting the Memorial of Alice B Simon Memorial # 19446032. She is a direct ancestor (unless there are 2 Alice's married to a George E. Simons in Mt. Zion). Do you mind adding some additional information for her? Or, if you prefer, you can transfer her to me (member # 47864103).
Her full name is Ruth Alice Berthena Simons (maiden name is Lamb). She was born 15 Sep 1873 in Gilmer Co., WV (not Upshur). Her parents were Henry Cornelius Desard Lamb and Clarinda/ Catharine Dennison. She married George Ellis Simon on 16 Jun 1895. She died 8 Feb 1957 in Upshur Co, WV.

Thank you, Lynn

Cemetery locations?
I am looking for directions to the Tenney Family Cemetery and Elbon Cemetery in Upshur County West Virginia.

I have family burried in them both. I am planning a trip with my 81 year old father to visit a bunch of cemeteries in West Virginia. I see you have taken pictures at both.

Jacob Crites portrait
Someone has posted a portrait of Jacob Crites to your memorial 13315920. However this is NOT Jacob Crites of Upshur County. The Jacob Crites pictured was from of Allen County, Ohio who died in 1904.
