Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Parkersburg, Wood County, WV. the 2nd of four children born to Dr. Lawrence H. Rolston and Helen L. Buskirk (both deceased).

I became seriously interested in my family genealogy in 2000. The photo (left) is me holding the original tombstone of my great-great-great grandfather, William Rolston (1757-1807). He was originally buried along the Ohio River, but due to yearly flooding, the family moved his remains to a new cemetery on higher ground in 1888, abandoning the old tombstone in favor of a new larger tombstone that included other family members. The orignal tombstone was reclaimed from the bank of the Ohio River and placed in the new cemetery.

I created or manage a modest number of memorials and would happily transfer any of those not closely related to me.

RE: Ella Roush
I transferred her to you. I also have her husband Charles W. Roush and other Roush's (Claude, Ernest E. and Georgiana) all in the Memorial Park Cemetery if you would like them too.

RE: Ella Roush
I don't mind transferring if you would like to take care of her. I'm not related at all.

Received edits and will approve. Are you related? Would you like a transfer?

RE: Col. David Alan Rolston
You are welcome, my honor to be taking photos in Arlington Cemetery. When they add grass to the area, then an overview shot can be done, but now, it is not too photo worthy in that area yet.

Myrtle Ralston Weidner
Just a note about your note: Myrtle was born on August 18, 1915, not August 15. She is my aunt and was a next-door neighbor when I was growing up. My birthday is four days before hers and the two of us enjoyed exchanging birthday greetings every year for many decades.

RE: Delorise Williams
I understand, but you submitted the bio and I like to give credit where credit is due.

I've put in thousands of hours of work into this site and it's a thankless job for the most part - :)

Have a great day!
