Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello everyone,
I started working on the McVey family tree back in 1979. After the death of my grandfather, James Preston McVey (64288185), my father came into possession of an old humpback trunk that contained a civil war flag, a couple of old double barrel shotguns, tin type photos, and the Family bible. The bible contained the birth dates of my Great-grandfather and his brothers, that was the "seed" that got me started.
I had no idea at the time how addictive genealogy could be.
I ran across Find-a-Grave during a recent research jag. It has become one of my favorite resources. I've always been an avid photographer, so I have plenty of photos from past visits to family cemeteries, I'm attempting to add them as well as the newer ones I have visited.
I hope my additions are as helpful to your research as yours have been to me.

Helen Burgess McVey
Hi Chris, I believe you have listed Helen McVey in the wrong Oak Hill Cemetery. I believe she is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery, Lebanon, Boone County, Indiana. That is where her parents are buried. I believe that since Lebanon was where she was living and there was no mention of Kirklin in her obit.

You can just click "edit" on your burial info, then continue. It will allow you to place her in the Oak Hill, Boone County cemetery.

Thank You,

Oscar McVey photo request
Hi, the volunteers would be happy to fill your photo request however we will need a burial location to do so. Can you please contact Laurel Land and get a burial location for your request.

The number is 214 371 1336 or to email them, the link is:

They are good about responding to the email request! There are over 32 photo requests currently and the volunteers cannot ask for that many locations to fill requests. With a location, your request will get filled pretty quickly. Thanks for your help

I was wondering if you have any information on the last name Sansom, your name was the contact person for the pic of Melvin Sansoms grave site. I have been looking for years for information on a Maud (Maude)(Maudie). The only thing I have on Maud is a death certificate saying her mom was Betty McCoy and Father Mel Sampson. Maud married a Howard Layne Howards dad was William Layne and mother Elizabeth Mounts? If not thank you for taking the time to post what could be someone's missing puzzle piece.

Claypool Cemetery
I was curious to know if you are related to the Morgan's you have listed in Claypool Cemetery? If not, would you consider transferring them to me?
The ones listed are close kin to my husband.
