Bio and Links
Bio Photo Well you know my name, here's my story. My family lines run throughout Summers, Greenbrier, Monroe, and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Sampson and Cumberland counties in North Carolina.

I'm twenty three years old and I began getting into family history around 2009. Little did I know what I would get into and how much information I would find. I love cemeteries and finding out family history that nobody really knew before.

I began with tracing the Wykle family line which then tied into the Erskine and Morgan sides. I have recently followed the Browning line, the Taylor and Spell lines, and the Harvey and Ellison lines. I also work on a few lines for my friends.

Family names: Wykle (Various spellings), Erskine, Kessinger, Morgan. // Browning, Meade, Estep. // Taylor, Spell, Blue. // Harvey, Ellison.

I did maintain and add just family memorials but then I started branching out and covering complete cemeteries in Summers County. Also through genealogy, I have made a lot of great connections.

If I have up a picture and you want it removed, let me know and I will gladly remove it. Also, if you have any photo requests in Summers County or surrounding areas, I will do my best to get it.

* 1/27/17 - Work is keeping me very busy lately so I haven't added like I want to. If you leave a message on my page, I'll get around to seeing it. If you have a change for me, my email comes to my phone so I will see it sooner and I'll update as soon as possible. Thank you!

my Great-Great Grandmother was a Breen.
Hello, my great-great grandmother was a Breen. unfortunately thats all we know. when she passed,either her husband, wesley Jackson Brothers, (1868 - 1947.) Or her father, unknown. wrote on her death certificate... Unknown, on just about everything. Birthplace, Mothers name, fathers, etc. I don't suppose any of you have any clue how to enlighten us about this. this would make my Grandmother very happy

This person was the mother-in-law of George Larry Breen. She is said to be buried in Breen Cemetery in Summers County (George Larry Breen is buried there but his wife, Nannie Virginia Meadows Breen, is not). I don't know how large the cemetery is but I would like a picture of the headstone (if there is one) for Nancy Ellen Adkins Meadows Carter. Thank you.

Pack, Christopher M
Hello Brittany :) Thanks so much for your efforts, taking pics and entering bio info.

I was wondering where the Military headstone for Chris Pack is located ... is it a marker near his headstone with his wife Stella Mae or someplace else ?

No big deal, I was just wondering.

Thanks again, and no rush on the response.

Take care and happy hunting!

Hi, Brittany. You added a memorial, 159944929. I was wondering if you were related or it's just a memorial that you added. Thanks.
