Bio and Links
Bio Photo My childhood centers around the Braxton and
Gilmer county lines, WV, and near a high point
known as Locust Knob. My research centers on Barker and Anderson of Monroe County Ohio, and Davis-Kelley of Lewis County, WV.
Sometimes I can photograph cemetery markers
in the above areas as well as near where I
live in North Carolina. Emails are welcome to discuss any interest in these areas.

RE: Jeremiah King
Sorry for the mistake. According to the 1870 census his folks were Augustus and Elizabeth King. Do you have Jeremiah's obit? If not, let me know and I will email it. Thanks for catching my mistake.

RE: Westfall letter gap
Sorry, that wasn't very specific.
I think it's on a hillside behind a home around a curve beyond the pond.

Yes, the pond is just past there.

You're welcome.

Also, the Westfall cemetery is just beyond the pond at Letter Gap, but I don't have coordinates.

RE: Westfall Cemetery-Letter Gap
Hello gilmerson,
Yes, I'm glad to do it, but it may take a little while.
In the meantime, I'm pretty sure this one is the same cemetery you're thinking of.

RE: Rachel Boyce Heater
I looked and see that M? Beasley and Elizabeth Horner married in 1849. Louisa was with her parents in 1850, but not in 1860.
First child of John and Elizabeth Beasley named Martha J.
So while it looks logical, so far no proof. Death records for the kids may yet yield a clue, did not find one right now. Looked in the Upshur Co. History by Cutright at the marriage listing but it did not cover the right year.
Sorry I could not be of more help. Hilda

Below is just a brief note:

RE: Rachel Boyce Heater
Ok, I see her in 1850. I also find the findagrave site for him. I deleted my "data photo"....my husband enrolled in findagrave a couple years before I started using it and my early work I sometimes delete when I find it. I will send you some fresh info and you can decide what you can use. Hilda

RE: Rachel Boyce Heater
Russell, Do you have any dates or a site number for Samuel Heater? I did a quick check and found one (1806-1883) but I did not see a daughter Louisa in a census record. Give me a starting point and I will check it out. Hilda
