Bio

My interests in genealogy lies with my family's roots in southern West Virginia.

My cousin, Glennis Walker, wrote a 700+ page book of the Walker History going back to 1734. I took an interest of photographing headstones of ancestors in the cemeteries I was familiar with and then it spread out to larger ones in Beckley and now I am trying to find EVERY cemetery named in this book. I am compiling Find A Grave printouts and cross referencing them to the page they appear in the Walker History book.

I will never ask for a transfer of a memorial that I am not related to the person and expect you not to ask for one of mine if you aren't related. I have taken the time to go to multiple cemeteries, take pictures and create memorials, so please don't ask without being related per FAG guidelines.

Thanks to Find A Grave volunteer photogs I have received headstone pictures as far away as California and Oregon. Once, while visiting in southern Texas, I was able to visit Fort Sam Houston Cemetery and find the grave of a cousin.

Family names in my genealogy are Walker, Hatcher, Bailey, Mills, McComas, Lilly, Meadows, Wallace, Woods, Daniels, among others.

In June, 2016 I completed inputting Glennis Walker's "The History of The Walker Family 1734 - 1990 & Their Kindred" book on an online family tree along with all the stories he included in the book. If your family is in this book and you would like to view the tree, please email me and I will supply you with the link and password.

REGARDING PHOTOS: PER F.A.G. GUIDELINES, UNLESS YOU HAVE THE COPYRIGHT OR OWN THE PHOTO, DO NOT POST TO MY MEMORIALS. DO NOT POST PICTURES FROM THE NEWSPAPERS OF PERSONS UNLESS YOU HAVE PERSONAL OWNERSHIP OF THE PHOTO. ALSO, IF I ALREADY HAVE A HEADSTONE/CRYPT PICTURE ON A MEMORIAL, DO NOT ADD ANOTHER PICTURE OF IT.

REGARDING EDITS:

Before you send an edit request for names, dates, or links, please provide proof backing up your information. I won't change or add any information on my memorials without official documentation, such as; marriage license, death or birth certificates or newspaper obituaries. Just because you say so, doesn't mean it is. I don't particularly trust census reports or information someone posted on ancestry sites to be adequate proof, so if you could, please provide official documents listed above and link if you are getting from internet so I can verify. Typing out the information in an email IS NOT proof. True FAG'ers will appreciate this.

I'm into this for accurate information on my memorials with name, dates, places and bio information, not for numbers where census reports are used to create memorials with problems, just to get a number on my profile.

Thanks!
