Bio and Links
Bio Photo I been working on my ancestry information for a a few years (but will always be a beginner) on the following families:

"Sharon's World & Beyond" (9/9/2013)
- Rickard, Morrison, Fry & Knapp from West Virginia

"Jeff's World & Beyond" (3/24/2016)
- Girton, Hidlay, Herrold, & Yeager from Pennsylvania.

I am working with Family Tree Maker. This project, and some quilting, helps to keep my mind active!

Originally from West Virginia. I've lived in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and I now live in Kentucky. As I visit other little "burgs" I stop and take a few shots of monuments if I can get to them! I love the different styles from elaborate to simple - I love them all ... especially the hard carved historical markers!

I'm willing to get out to take photos if they are easy to get to! Can't climb all over the country sides any more! Also, if there is a memorial that you would like to maintain just let me know!

Thanks for any help! God Bless! Sharon

If you have the time, please stop by and visit my Mom and Dad. I miss them very much!

And for all of you who has lost a four legged loved one, please know that our heart goes out for your loss. Please take time to visit our little lost Angel and Dixie Mae.

RE: Phyllis Long #150203197
Thank you for finding that, Sharon. I did make a duplicate because of the last name so I posted the same grave marker photos and requested an edit for the GPS location on the original #129474553. Then I deleted 150203197.

Thanks again,

RE: Harry and Mabel Hoffman
Thanks again!

I've submitted the correction for Harry. If my email isn't shown, it is
Yes, I'd appreciate any information you have and will send you the photos I have.

No, I didn't know that my mother had a brother who had died as an infant. Perhaps, she was never told since it was common at that time not to.

I'd like to add Francis' mother's information to the website but can't locate the Find A Grave Memorial # for Fay Dixon. Would you have any information about her? I believe my mother told me that she was a cousin of Mabel Grace's which made my mother and aunt Francis half-sisters and cousins.

I also saw on the website that there is a Hoffman Cemetery in West Columbia, WV. It appears that only my grandparents, aunt and mother are at the Lone Oak Cemetery. Are the majority of our Hoffman ancestors buried in West Columbia? My mother was born in West Columbia but I was never there as a child when we visited Mason and Pomeroy.

Thanks again for all your help!

RE: Harry and Mabel Hoffman
Thank you so much for answering! I appreciate the work you've done on Harry's page. I want to correct his year of death to 1956 as soon as I have the exact date.

I never knew that my aunt Francis' first name was actually Hannah. The name on her Social Security card is "Francis Hoffman". I'll see if we have any paperwork that shows it and correct the internet information.

I remember meeting some of my mother's Hoffman relatives in WV in 1971. One was her uncle. I will find the photos and send them to you. She passed away suddenly in early 1972 just after her 43rd birthday. Aunt Francis also passed away suddenly when she was 41. She had no children.

I have a large family portrait from around 1912 in an oval frame with convex glass of my great-grandfather Hoffman, my grandfather and his brothers that I will sent to you as well.

It's nice to meet a Hoffman relative! Thanks again!

Harry and Mabel Hoffman

I'm Mike Nesbitt and I noticed your link on the pages of my grandparents, Harry and Mabel Grace (Francis) Hoffman.

I've been working to update and correct the information on this website for them, my mother Margie Ann Hoffman Nesbitt and my aunt Francis Hoffman who are all buried in the Lone Oak Cemetery.

Francis' mother was Fay Dixon, Harry's first wife. Margie's mother was Grace. Grace's sister was Helen (Francis) Stewart who lived in Mason until her death in 1993.

Can you tell me if you are related to either of my grandparents? Thanks!

RE: Mary Katherine Dickens Noble
Whoops! That was actually a picture of her son's grave marker. She would be my Great-Grandmother. I fixed it. I look near her husbands grave but found none for her. Could not find info in Mason County Courthouse either.

Emma McComb: Pliny, WV
Hi Sharon, re: requested edit for: Find A Grave Memorial# 79889907. Pliny is located in Putnam county, WV. If you are a relative and you want me to change it to Mason County, Pliny will not be available as the town. I realize her death certificate says, Pliny, Mason County.

As far as I know the McCombs lived in Pliny, Putnam County. If you have additional information, please let me know. Nina
