Vest infants - Simmons Cemetery, W.Va.
Joseph Thomas “Joe” Vest and wife Izola Furrow Vest had two babies – a newborn and a 15-month old -- die in November 1918.

Vest, Earl K (Memorial 59283713)
b. Aug. 4, 1916 d. Nov. 17, 1918

Vest, Mabel M. (Memorial 59283823)
b. Nov. 6, 1918 d. Nov. 30, 1918

Most of the family obits list Earl and Mabel among the siblings. I can’t find a birth or death record for either. But I’ve talked with a family member who confirmed that Earl and Mabel buried in the Simmons Cemetery are children from this Vest family.

Can you confirm that Cora Pearl Cook Brown memorial 46123634 is buried at Huntersville AR Presbyterian Church Cemetery? Death certificate says she is buried at Prosperity AR Presbyterian Church and there is memorial 53387677 for her at that church? Thanks for the help.

Hi James,
Wanted to thank you for putting info on Micajah/Michagah Sanders/Saunders b. 1798 gravesite. I was wondering if you could remove Joseph Martin as one of his children. I believe Joseph may have been an employee. He is listed as a son in the household of Mary Martin in the 1850 Giles County, Virginia census. She was a neighbor of Micajah Sanders/Saunders family.
Thank-you,

Susan Kennison Bogle
Forget the last message--I found her married to another James Bogle. Sorry for the mixup.

Hey James,
I noticed that you have her name as Susan Kennison Bogle (114911464). I haven't been able to find anything with Kennison. I have always suspected that she might be have been married before James Bogle because she was 32 when she married James. Can you give me any guidance?
