Looking for connections to my maternal grandfather Floyd Columbus SIMMONS's mother "Sara Jane ANDERSON" born OCT 11, 1859 in either Holly Springs or Hackers Valley area of Webster Co., WVA - but that's not conclusive. We know she is buried in Webster Springs, WVA - maybe Valley Head. I don't know where she is buried, but Alfred ANDERSON Cemetery Nu 1, Cowger Cemetery or a HOGAN Cemetery looks like worthy choices. If anyone knows, could you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sara Jane ANDERSON (SIMMONS) died when my grandfather Floyd was a young boy so alot is not know of her thou I know her father was Alfred D. ANDERSON mother Barbara SNYDER and her lineage is down fairly well - just would like to know where she is buried.
