Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am from Charleston WV & graduated from Stonewall Jackson High 1968. I am one of two daughters of Mary Christine Painter and Ronald Gifford Bailey. They both died in 1994, 4 months apart and are buried in Ormond Beach, FL. Before my grandmother (Macel May Dawson Bailey) died in 1979 she gave me a handwritten paper with her family information. After my parents died, I ran across that paper, which led to the exploration of my ancestral roots. A couple of years ago I did some research at the Cultural Arts Center at the Capitol in Charleston and at Dunbar City Library along with visiting a few of the cemeteries in order to collect information for my project. It's been a very exciting adventure and my endeavors have been very rewarding thus far. Find A Grave has been a great collaborative tool for my research. Much thanks to all of those who have taken the time to post information on Find A Grave and thanks to the creators of Find A Grave to provide the space to remember our loved ones. Please let me know if you find any errors or want me to add additional information to anyone I have posted to this site.

Hi there
I saw you added the graves of Jacob Spence Davis and Nancy Mynes. I descend from the Mynes' and have a few conflict Nancys, would you happen to know the parents of the Nancy Mynes who married Davis?

Parcell Family, Charleston WV
Hi Karen,

My name is Sheila Parcell and my dad was from Charleston, well actually Springhill...I, like you got started the same way. I am wondering if you are related to us in any way? I have so many unanswered questions regarding the Parcell side of my family.

Also, I'm very curious if you know this Duane Burtner, the great grandson of Mary Parcell...she is the sister to my great grandfather Nathaniel Green Parcell.

I would love to talk with you.
Many thanks,
