Does Taylor Co. have a book of cemetery listings? I need to find the burial
site of a John MORRIS , born Monongalia Co., and died about 1855
or thereabouts, and is possibly buried in Steele Cemetery, Taylor Co. Old
written note from about 1950 reflects collection of $8.00 obtained from

be obtained on Internet? If so what is web site? With sincere appreciation.

Searching for information about Benjamin FERGUSON and Harriet VANDERGRIFT
1829) who married Oct 15, 1850 Marion Co WV. In the Dutch tradition, Harriet
kept her maiden name & as a result, part of the family goes by Ferguson
and the other by Vandergrift. Our "Vandergrift" side only discovered the
"Ferguson" side when we researched this. Since Harriet was born in 1829,
Benjamin may have been in the same age group and could have served in the
Civil War, though nothing has been found to date.

Sprouse Bramhall on Sunday, October 18, 1998
Henry ANDERSON , born c 1811 Maryland, lived in Pennsylvania, at
the least between 1832-1837 and came to Monongalia (Marion) Co, (West)
Virginia by 1839, and possibly lived in Taylor County. He had at least
19 children - 9 children by his first wife, "Ann" (James, Nancy C., John
J., Wiliam S., Enos M., Mary A., Elizabeth E., Newton B., John Festus)
and 10 children by his 2nd wife, Hannah Minear (Rachel Helen/Daniel Lenna
(twins), Henry Fillmore, Anabell, Charles, George Franklin, Nora J., Sarah
J., Malinda M., Levi M.). At one point in time, Henry and Hannah lived
near Taylor Co. line in Powell and at least one son (Festus) was a Taylor
County resident. Family legend names Henry's first wife as Anna Elizabeth
(Hannon or Annon or Hanover), and says he was buried on Coon's Run, but
no grave site has been found to date. According to 1850 Marion Co. census,
Ann was born in PA. In 1842, Henry and Ann sold land along Mon River and
