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

Florence Grim #47647637
Hello Rocky, I have been working on my West Virginia family. While looking at my gg grandmother Helmick, I was attempting to "locate" all of her children. One was named Florence. I did find her death certificate, and wanted to make a Find a grave memorial. But I looked to see if there was already one made.
That is when I found the one you made back in 2010. I thought that was her, but you show a maiden name of "Miller". Everything else matches up. I have the birth, death, and parents information. But I wonder what your thoughts are as to where the "Miller" name came from. Her husband's name was John, and I think that would be the John Grim in Union Cemetery (Find A Grave# 47647670).
Let me know your thoughts, and I could 'attach' a copy of her death certificate to the memorial, if that would be ok with you.
Sincerely, NancyPhillips - Find A Grave member # 47330320

Rocky, I just submitted family information for him naming his (second?) wife. The children are his, however two of them give their mother a different maiden name. Please review my information and correct as needed or decline. Hilda

You have him listed in 2 different cemeteries (62495705 & 28325856). The headstone photo on both is the same. 62495705 is the correct location.

Allman Family Cemetery in Buckhannon

Hello, hope you are well.

I visited this homestead yesterday, 11/5/14, and looked all over for the cemetery for the Allman family, to no avail. Have you been to this location and have you seen the cemetery? I had wanted to fill the photo request for this cemetery and could use a little help.

Marple Cemetery
Hi Rocky

When did they change the name of the cemetery from Marple Chapel Cemetery to Marple Cemetery.
Is this a different cemetery than Marple Chapel Cemetery?

I had thought it was a part of the Methodist Episcopal Church (M. E. Church) founded in 1899, at Alexander , Upshur Co WV

I bet I am mixed-up. Could you please help me?

Regard, Karen Eagle Moman
