Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my own family tree since about the Fall of 1999. I started this project by doing transcripts of my own family's cemeteries and taking photos of the stones. I am sure this is how most folks get started doing this kind of thing.

On my father's side, I am researching these names; Campbell, Clouse, Donalson, Edwards, Elam, Engle, Faris/Farris, Gillum/Gilliam, Harris, Hodge/Hodges, Hutton, Keck, Owsley and Riddle at this time. These surnames are from Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, with ties to England, Germany and Scotland.

On my mother's side, I am researching these names; Cantley, Clay, Gibbs, Rorrer/Rohrer and Turner at this time. These surnames are from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, with ties to Switzerland, Germany and England.

You have my permission to use any photos posted here as long as it used for research and not for profit.

Memorial # 145454344. There is a picture of his headstone at the Kincaid Cemetery in Kincaid, WV on Kincaid Cemetery Road which is about 1 mile south of Page off Rt. 61. If you are traveling south from Page, the road is on your left. The cemetery is at the end of the road.

Thank you for your volunteerism to Find a Grave. It is such a helpful tool when researching families.

Please edit Mary E Hurley. Her maiden name is Guinn not Quinn.

This would have been my dad's aunt.
