Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Corley, WV. My adult life has been spent in the northern VA suburbs. My passion for the history of Braxton County and uncovering the genealogy of the families - who were a part of the community that shaped me - is being fanned into flames in my retirement years. I will work to do a walk-through survey of cemeteries in the area to share with FAG viewers.

I appreciate your advising me of additions or corrections. Many thanks.

You have lots of tombstone and cemetery entrance pics I would like to use in WikiTree, a free genealogy site to build family trees on. I am trying to all of my families in with accurate work I appreciate all the work you do. This person is Mamie's mother.

Thanks again,

Thank you for the correction and edits. I processed them, however changed a couple items to appear as it does when I looked them up. I could not find the actual birth record at wvculture, but ancestry has a transcript and there are multiple records there with his birth day as 11, not 20. The transcribed birth record has his middle name as Earle, not Earl. I realize transcriptions are often in error, but that is all I have to go on so far. If you have any further information, please let me know. Thanks again.

RE: Clara Elsie Miller - 129598633
The information provided at birth by Alice Wright (mother)is the child's name was Clara Elsie Wright.

The information provided at death by Alice Wright (mother) is the deceased name was Clara E Miller.

I would have to say the name of both (duplicate) FindAGrave memorials should be Clara Elsie Wright Miller and your name of 'Else Clare' needs to be indicated as a nickname or alias.

I would move my picture if the name changes are effected.

He did marry Georgina. I am not sure of the date though. I have pictures of him and a couple of his brothers. He is my great uncle. I met him when I was a child. Thank you for getting back with me.
