Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got into genealogy when the burial location of a distant relative was located after being lost for approximately three generations. I created a find-a-grave entry for him so that this would not occur again. I couldn't stop with him with significant data available for other relatives so I kept adding just one more person until I ran out of relatives. The four main branches researched are defined by the grandparents: Mathews & Dickerson on my mothers side and Brady & of course Raines on my fathers side along with some tributaries created by marriage. Please contact me if you like to suggest corrections, additional information or submit pictures. If I have created a memorial for a distant relative of mine that you would like to take possession, feel free to contact me.

Regarding Walker Cemetery
I used the edit button for the Stokes family to suggest edits for them. Thank you for the time you took in photographing and creating their memorials!
Nathaniel and Lucinda Stokes are my 3 Greats Grandparents!

Moffitts Branch, KY
I've been doing research on the Gaines/Matthews family. There is a Moffitt Road in Kenton County, Ky; which in the 1700's was Agusta County, Va. I believe this could help you in your future searches.

Hi Marty...I appreciate the information you added for most of the burials at Walker Cemetery. I am especially interested in Joseph P Williams & his daughter Annie Williams. By chance do you have more information regarding this family? I'm in search JP's ancestral line...Thanks, Robert

Bruner cemetary

I visited the cemetary in 2010. It is overgrown and many of the stones need resetting.

Bruner family
Where did you get the information on birthdates of James and Jeremiah Bruner? Also some of the information posted is incorrect, Edward Bruner lived in Wilmore and is buried there. Tilford did not die in Colorado. There are a few others, if you are interested. Thanks.
