hi i live onlake erie in ohio. I have been doing my familys history for 6 years...i love it! Ive been getting great leads this year and hope to get more. I mostly research washington co. pa, belmont county ohio, and the wheeling and mannington area in west virginia. Would love to help some people who need pictures of stones in my area...
RE: shaw cemetery i have spoke with a tina and sheila from joetown. tina is helping look for the right location of the cemetery. sheila has a picture of the old farmhouse with shaws in it. nobody in my family has been there in 30-40 years or so. so we are going off of memory alone on the location. i have never been there so i am relying on the locals for help. i am also finding (on the internet) that there are 2 shaw cemeteries in west virginia. one by grafton and the other in joetown, 2 sets of coordinates. joetown is the one that i want because of shinnston. i am a decendant of the shinns also. do you mind me asking who your contacts are? if not, can you send them to my home email to respect their privacy a little bit? thanks for getting back to me on this also! i tried locating it this past saturday with no luck. it's such a small cemetery and being on private property doesnt help much. nobody really knew it existed.
RE: Smith, Sarah Kim, I am actually trying to reach the cemetery so I can find where my husband's gg-grandmother is buried. When I reach them, I'll ask about your Smith and Jennings. Locust Hill Cemetery is in Hancock County (Chester, WV). It is not far from my home in ELO. Also, I don't know if you are aware of the website www.wvculture.org/vrr or not. It has all of the old death certificates for the State of WV. My regular email is Stockdale1042@comcast.net. I plan on doing a lot of research the last week of August while my husband and I are on vacation. TTYS! Theresa
Smith, Sarah Kim, I walked the entire cemetery today looking for Sarah Smith and Joseph Jennings Smith. I found many Smiths, but not these two. Do you have any idea which location they might be in? I plan on calling the office to find out for you on Monday.
