Bio and Links
Since 2006 I have been unraveling the story of the John Wesley Hooker family from the Buffalo Ridge section of Patrick County, Virginia. He and his wife Margaret Akers raised 13 children. The quest has taken me to many libraries, court houses and grave yards. The distant relatives, that I have met along the way are the true treasures of the adventure. Along with the facts, I have collected and identified many old pictures, often put away in forgotten boxes. I have tried to share these pictures with their loved ones.

I am currently working on my husband's family- the Ramsey, Gardner, Turner, Jamison and Pinkard families from Henry and Franklin Counties Virginia.

I'm also working on my mother's family - the Manson, Blackwell, Bridgforth and Seay families in Lunenburg Co., Va and the Cunningham , Pollard and Allen families in Prince Edward Co, Va.

Sorry about duplications Katherine, must have missed them. I posted photos to original memorials and deleted my duplicates. Thanks for the heads up.

Black Cemetery Phelps County MO
I made the links you requested for the Blacks.
Do you know the relationship for James D. Black born 1939 died 1967 & Dugles W. Black born 1961 died 1967. They have a double tombstone. I could link them if you know the relationship. You can send me a edit message through Dugles W. Black's memorial.
Thank you

Pleasant Brown Stanley Cemetery
Hi Katherine , I stumbled across your posting for the Pleasant Brown Stanley cemetery. I was there in 1981 and was doubting if I could find it again. PB Stanley is my GG Grandfather, Owen Henry Stanley is my G Grandfather who married Senora Esther Young from the Hawpatch Hill area. I am curious how you fit into this family. I plan to visit the area again this year. Thanks for your work.
