Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Corley, WV. My adult life has been spent in the northern VA suburbs. My passion for the history of Braxton County and uncovering the genealogy of the families - who were a part of the community that shaped me - is being fanned into flames in my retirement years. I will work to do a walk-through survey of cemeteries in the area to share with FAG viewers.

I appreciate your advising me of additions or corrections. Many thanks.

RE: Cemetery help??

Excellent - thanks for your help!!!!

It is the Harris Family cemetery and it's supposed to be on 2 Lick Rd Sutton WV. No I didn't make that name up.... It looks like it may also be referred to as 19/29. The cemetery according to what I've found is located at LAT 38.587084 and LONG -80.672345

You probably don't remember it but I had asked you about a person that I had added to the big cemetery and after you documented it and there was no picture I went digging and found that he was supposed to be in this Harris Family Cemetery so I moved him am hoping that I have it all right this time - the picture proves the accuracy so I'm hoping you can help me with that part of it....

Though sometimes it's deceiving from the satellite pictures - it looks like theres about 20-30 folks in this cemetery so hopefully it won't take too long....

Thanks again for your help!!

Best regards,
Keith Meadows

Cemetery help??

I was wondering if you would mind to document a cemetery for me up there in Braxton Co WV?? Don't worry it's not as big as Braxton Gardens :-)

I'm about 4 hours away so my opportunities to get there are fairly limited.

Thank you so much for the photo. Do you have any record of the adjoining graves? I feel certain this is a relative, but am unable to make the connection.

Hello, Paula
I am having a difficult time trying to find my grandmother's grave. Death record shows place of burial as Marpleton, WV. I've contacted a lady who is VERY familiar with this cemetery, and she says no grave is there but that some were moved to Braxton Memorial when the Sutton Dam was built. Are you aware of any unmarked graves or do you know how I can find if she was one who was moved?
Thank you,

You have lots of tombstone and cemetery entrance pics I would like to use in WikiTree, a free genealogy site to build family trees on. I am trying to all of my families in with accurate work I appreciate all the work you do. This person is Mamie's mother.

Thanks again,
