Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has become my newest addiction!

Taphophilia = an abnormal love for graves and cemeteries. The love of walking cemeteries and finding lost relatives and the gravesites of ancestors.


If you've never taken a few moments to spend time in the cemetery...You're really missing out. The peace and tranquility you find in them. Those that have gone before many times have left a final message on their tombstones. These messages are an inspiration and make me feel humbled and blessed! Go ahead...take the time...walk your local cemetery and read their messages and see how they reach out and touch you! You'll be glad you did! (quoted from another find-a-graver)


We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe.


"When I go to a cemetery, I don't just see tombstones. I see families there. I see history there. I see much more than just a stone..."

My great3grandmother was America Burchett Gilmore Woodruff Beebe - second wife to your ancestor Jeremiah Beebe. While she lived until 1922, my family has only one photo of her. I was wondering if you know of any other photos of her? James

Thanks for the heads up. I have contacted the person who first created to see if they want to copy the obituary. I have asked them to notify me so I can delete once done.

Kennedy Cemetery
Hi Anna, Sorry to say I have no idea where the Kennedy Cemetery is located in Monongalia County, WV. seems to be one near Wadestown and one listed near Burton, Burton is just outside of Wadestown, It looks as though there are several death records of burials listed as in the Kennedy Cemetery. I'll ask locals and see if anyone knows. Sylvia

Some hand was guiding you to enter this just 5 days ago and me to find it today. I have been spending a lot of hours trying to find Caleb Carver's parents. At least now you have located the burial site of his wife. Mary Flagg born 1783 and married 1803. Could your posted age at death of 53 be in error? They are my 4th great grandparents.

Walker Cemetery McCurdysville WV
Hi Anna, Thank you for all the work you have done to document grave sites. Would you happen to have directions or an exact location for the Walker Cemetery in McCurdysville WV? You took a picture of it and the markers, but I can't find it using google maps. I did find a McCurdysville Cemetery, but not the smaller Walker family plot. The Walkers are my 4th great grandparents.
Thank you!

Hi Anna -

Many thanks for the transfer. I really appreciate you doing that for me. What's even more important (to me) is that I had completely forgotten that I had her memorial in F.A.G. with an unknown burial location. I spotted it this morning when I attached her first husband. Needless to say, I deleted my memorial. I had added it back in 2010 and quite frankly, my memory is just not that good from 4 years back.

Again, thank you very much.

RE: Toothman corrections
I looked up a few of them and saw that. This Fluharty cemetery is about 2 tenths of mile from the Toothman cemetery so I wonder if thats not part of the confusion.. we may never know :)

RE: Coplin photos (3)
I'm not positive where I found the Coplin graves. I think it was in one of the older southern-most sections, possibly third section from the trees along the highway or one of the two sections behind that. I don't know how the sections are numbered. All three graves were together with Mildred and Ronal sharing the same base with a vase between and Scott just to the side. Most graves in that area have standing stones, but these were flush with the ground. --Doug
