Bio and Links
I live in Stuart, Florida but I am originally from Charleston, WV. I am a married mother of one child, Adam. I have always had an interest in my ancestry. I come from a VERY large family by today's standards and loved listening to stories my older relatives used to tell about our ancestors. I love history and solving puzzles, so genealogy tracing is a perfect fit for me. I have always been fascinated by cemeteries and curious about the people buried there. You can learn much about people and their culture by the graves they leave behind.
I joined Find A Grave after the death of my father because it gave me comfort to memorialize him in some way. I have used Find A Grave many times while tracing a line in a family tree and recently, I have started adding memorials for people I don't know in an effort to help others outside of WV trace their lineage as well. Every memorial I create is done with two purposes: 1)to create a memorial record so that person will be remembered since gravestones often fade over time and 2)to help people with genealogical searches who might otherwise not ever know the facts or where their relative is buried. I always hated the idea that a person may not be remembered, so this is my effort to help make certain that doesn't happen as much as I can.

RE: Richard and Susanna Youngman
Hello, Glad I could help. I have closer up photos of these graves and the ones either side. If you e mail me direct I can send them over to you? You can only add 1 photo unfortunatley when you answer a request. I am at work most of today but will also look at them and see what I think the inscription says. I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Thank You!!!
Your more than welcome and so happy to have found it for you. Funny thing is I was heading to another church to look for ancestors and came across this church. I thought I would stop and have a look, I always try and snap as many graves as I can while I'm there. Not only did I find that grave for you but found a few of my husbands ancestors too. Jill

This 9 year old girl who was murdered in 1968 in WV was my aunt, my biological father's sister. Thank you so much for taking a picture of her grave before moving to Florida.

Hi Cathy
It's done... I wondered how long it would take you to ask! LOL!
Hope all is going well on your side of the pond. Here the money pit has sunk further... Ah but my vacation is 4 weeks away!
love you too!

will do but in the future it's best to ask using the edit tab on the memorial because the email to me will then include your ID number. Thanks, Denise<><
