same Adkins buried in 2 cemeteries
Hi Lee Found Isom (Isam( Adkins, Lucinda Jane Holstein, Gladys Ollie (Gladys O) and Whiiten all buried in both The Hensley Family Cemetery in Kanawha Co and the Ronda Cemetery also in Kanahwa. Something has to be amiss as the dates are the same for both places. Their cannot be that many Adkins of same names and exact dates. Let me know what you think as I am doing the tree and have to find out the truth.

RE: 45548745
OK...guess it really doesn't matter either way then! I was up there week before last cleaning off the graves of relatives and others. Trees have fallen and broken a lot of the headstones from the severe storms recently. I live in TN and cannot work on cleaning up the place. An elderly man in the area is doing his best.

Wesley McDowell Burnside
I finally found my great great grandfather Wesley McDowell Burnside! I've been looking for him since I've been a member of findagrave. He is in the WV 7th CAV and he is located in the Massey Cemetery in Rock Creek Raleigh County. His ID# is 136185500. I thought you might want to add him to your virtual cemetery.

jacob Jackson WV 7th
I found another Civil War soldier from the 7th if you want to add him to your virtual cemetery. He is in the Dameron Cemetery on Lucas Hill Rd. His name is Jacob Jackson. I ran into the marker this spring.

RE: Ivison Browning
Thank you for sharing your information, Lee. I am more confused now than ever! I looked up Melvin's death certificate, and you are absolutely correct that it lists Ivison's birthplace as Tenn. The informant on the death certificate is J.E. Brown. That was James E. Brown, my GGG-Grandmother, Roxie Browning's second husband. According to Roxie's death certificate her father, Ivison, was born in WV. The informant is her son from her first marriage to my GGG-Grandfather John Woodrum, Cecil Woodrum. I am wondering now who actually commissioned the headstone. I know in the 1900 Census Ivison was living with his daughter, Ethereal/Ethell Browning Cooper's family, and much of the Cooper family is also buried in the same cemetery. I have yet to find him in the 1910 Census, though I did find Ethereal and her family. There is a death record in Cabin Creek, Kanawha, WV for Isaac Browning, but the name could also be read as Ivison. It puts his death on 21 Nov 1911 at age 74 of paralysis, and the informant is listed as daughter. He is also a widower. I realize this doesn't jibe with the date on the headstone, though, so I'm apt to throw it out of the ring as the correct death register. I can't thank you enough for your contributions to Find A Grave, Lee! I am looking forward to digging into Ivison's roots as thoroughly and accurately as possible, and that headstone image is a brand new starting point for me. Thanks again for your time!
