Bio and Links
Bio Photo Before telling me I've created a duplicate please make sure you actually added a grave not a tombstone.If that's the case you should delete yours.Just check the date you added and compare with date of death.If there is no date of death on a tombstone don't assume they have died.Many people prepare in advance.I've seen a few of my relatives on FAG that are very much alive and well...I live in Southern Preston County in West Virginia.I'd be happy to try to find and take pictures of requested graves in my area.I may already have them in my files. I'll be happy to transfer those I've added provided they are not my own relatives.If I have one of your relatives that are unrelated to me,including distant relatives,I'd be happy to transfer.I am just happy to help others in their search for the final resting places of family.If I've added a photo to a memorial I may have other photos in that cemetery as well.Please ask.I wish you the best of luck in your search for your roots!

RE: Louisa Cornwell Robey 111289265
I took the picture of Louisa's headstone while visiting my grandmother's grave. She is also buried in Herring. That's the only connection I have with Louisa. If I transferred to another user, then they are most likely a relative.

Susannah Virginia Moore
Hi Patty,

I am assuming from your name that you are somehow related to Benjamin Franklin Strahin and Susannah Virginia Moore, both buried in Maplewood Cemetery with memorials you created. Susannah was a grandneice to my wife's 2great-grandmother Mary Moore, b. 1817. Have you done research on the Moore family in Preston County or do you know anyone that is researching the Moore family.

Grim Cemetery
Hello, at some point you took a picture of the stone for John H Grimm, at the Paul Grimm Cemetery near Tunnelton. Would you have the coordinates and/or directions to that cemetery? I can't seem to find them. I'm going to be in the area later this month and would like to visit. Thanks! krg

Christina (Fortney) Pyles Field #77581017
Do you have any documentation of her marriage to Hunter Pyles? And, that Hunter Pyles name was "Hunter Thomas Pyles"? ]'History of Preston Co'] lists her marriage to John Field.

The Fortney Family book [I have excerpts] lists Christina b. abt 1795 as dau of Daniel Fortney & Barbara Pickenpaugh.

I have seen elsewhere that Nancy Fortney was dau of Peter Fortney & Anna Elizabeth Hahn. However, the Fortney Family book lists her as m. James Cobun with 6 children, at least. And, I have found no reference that she also m. Hunter (Thomas?) Pyles. Daniel Fortney & Barbara Pickenpaugh had a dau. Nancy b. 1797 d.1807.

If you want you can email me at Thanks!
