Bio Photo Hello!
I have been researching genealogy for several years now, and I find Find-A-Grave an amazing tool for recording burials for others to see. I photograph the monuments I can, and record all the unmarked graves that I can. If you need anything from me, as in edits, transfers, etc., please do not hesitate to ask, I will be glad to give you the memorial (if I'm not related) and/or fulfill any edits you may have.

My family line I'm working on includes:

Henthorn (Ohio & WV)

Mercer (WV)

Latta (Ohio)

Metz (WV)

VanCamp (WV)

Winland (WV & Ohio; looking for the Winland Cemetery over in Monroe County, Ohio. If anyone has info regarding this cemetery, Please let me know! It will be greatly appreciated!

Gadd (WV)

Headley (WV, OH, PA, NJ)

Mann (NJ)

Thomas (WV)

Lemasters (WV, and Indiana)

Stroop (WV, PA)

Yoho (WV, Greene Co. PA)

Fox (WV, Greene Co. PA)

Kent (Ohio)

RE: Edwards line
Hey -

I haven't run into a Francis Lynn Edwards in my Edwards research, nor have I located any relatives in Wetzel Co, WV. The first Edwards ancestors I know of who settled in WV would be my maternal grandparents who moved from OH to Huntington, Cabell Co, WV, and later some other Edwards relatives moved to Wheeling Island, Ohio Co, WV.

RE: Silence Grant Nye - FAG # 118509833
Yes, I have heard from others that descendants of Silence Grant Gardner Nye are related to Pres. Grant.

Regarding the death record for Thomas Gardner, I'm still searching. Hopefully one day I'll be able to say with certainty that you and I are cousins. That will be the day, yes! :)

Thanks for your email.

Silence Grant Nye - FAG # 118509833
Hello -

Thank you for maintaining this memorial for Silence Grant Nye who is my 4th great grandmother. At least this is the info. that has been handed down through the generations.

I see that Thomas Gardner is listed as one of her children, and it is through Thomas Gardner that I descend, but I have yet to find documentation that he is the son of Silence (Grant) Nye, who was first married to Benoni Gardner. Again, it is just something that has been passed along verbally. Do you by chance know of any documentation for this? It would provide me something I've been searching for years.

Thank you,
Nancy Edwards

RE: Kelley Cemetery, Fish Creek, Marshall County, WV
I'm sorry to take so long to respond to your question, I've been away from my computer for a while. I live in New Mexico, but was in Pennsylvania and West Virginia a few years ago while my husband had a project in the area. I photographed as many cemeteries as I could, many of them down winding dirt roads and off the main roadways. The Kelley cemetery is on private land, and the owners very generously allowed me to photograph the markers to include on Find A Grave. I no longer have a way to contact them, but you might try the county historical commission.

RE: Samantha Jane Haught Parks
You are welcome. There is no doubt that we are some sort of cousins. Elisha was my 1st cousin, 4 times removed.
The Headlee/ley is the second largest surname is my tree, second only to my Hartley's. The last time I looked I had over 750 Headlee/ley's
My Gr. Grandfather, Elisha Wilson Hartley married Sarah Headlee. I'm a member of the S.A.R. thru my 3rd great grandfather, Ephraim Headlee who married Mary Fordyce.

That's just a few tid bits for you. That and $5.00 will get you a good cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Thank you for posting the picture of Ebenezer and Ruth Rutter. The family appreciates it. If anyone is ever in the Tyler County, WV area, we'd still like to see a picture of the grave stones/markers for them at Mt. Nebo cemetery. Thanks, Joy Wolfe

LeMasters USA Data
Katherine Lemaster Dendy, did live in Alvarado, TX, possibly on Blue Shore Dr, and is the author of "Up A Tree Doing Genealogy - Update of Lemasters USA 1639-1995"
I purchased a copy(CD) from her several years ago and communicated with her several times afterwards by e-mail, but I have lost her e-mail address, etc. since then. At the time she was charging between $20 to $25 for the CD ( if you had kin, and forwarded your data back to her, she would update it into her records.(Her updated version(CD) is over 500 pages long.)
If you can find a method to contact her, I am sure she will sell you a copy.
If you just have names you need info on, I possibly could provide it, if it is in her records.
My e-mail address is as follows:
