Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Parkersburg, Wood County, WV. the 2nd of four children born to Dr. Lawrence H. Rolston and Helen L. Buskirk (both deceased).

I became seriously interested in my family genealogy in 2000. The photo (left) is me holding the original tombstone of my great-great-great grandfather, William Rolston (1757-1807). He was originally buried along the Ohio River, but due to yearly flooding, the family moved his remains to a new cemetery on higher ground in 1888, abandoning the old tombstone in favor of a new larger tombstone that included other family members. The orignal tombstone was reclaimed from the bank of the Ohio River and placed in the new cemetery.

I created or manage a modest number of memorials and would happily transfer any of those not closely related to me.

RE: Delorise Williams
I understand, but you submitted the bio and I like to give credit where credit is due.

I've put in thousands of hours of work into this site and it's a thankless job for the most part - :)

Have a great day!

You sent a parental link for Clarence Angel. Where did you find this? I haven't had much time to look deeper into his family. Are you related, or just came upon them? Thanks!
