Your Welcome re Dovie
Anytime. Where she is buried is my family's cemetery. She and her husband were living at Verdunville in Logan County, WV near that cemetery when they passed. I try to keep up with the folks who are buried there, as I'm pretty much the family historian/genealogist. My email is if you want to contact me directly. Like most folks who volunteer on Findagrave, always glad to help.

Dovie Picklesimer Maynard
Looks like Picklesimer is the correct one. I apoligize for the incorrect information. I've search and search, and I don't know where I got Simon, unless I just wrote down the wrong thing.

I found a marriage certificate on for Willie Maynard and Dovie Picklesimer, married in Dunlow, Wayne County, in WV in 1914. The document didn't give the parents names for either.

Another researcher has her parents as William James Picklesimer and Ida Jane Sturgill, both of Kentucky. Ida appears as Ida Pickle, divorced, in Lawrence Co KY 1900 census in the home of her parents, George and Polly Sturgill. Her children are with her: Dovie Pickle age 5, and Effie Pickle age 3.

That Ida Sturgill Picklesimer later married again to Henry Burton. She died in 1953. I found her death certificate, and it names her parents as George Sturgill and Polly Stevens.

I have changed Dovie's maiden name and taken out Simon everywhere it appeared. I'll add all this other information and get Dovie linked up to her mother's memorial page. Ida is buried in the Jacob Marcum (Stamper) Cemetery at Dunlow beside Henry Burton and they have memorials on Finagrave also.

Since this is your family, I'll be happy to transfer management of these pages to you if you want. As you learn more about them you can update the information yourself that way. Just let me know.
