I am related to a Valentine Cooper who is buried in Hardy co. Virginia (now West Virginia) buried along with him are some Calendars. Here is what is said about this:
According to WPA records, also buried in the cemetery with Valentine Cooper are, M.C. Calendar, b. 1752, d. 5-5-1828, age: 76 years; M.C. Calendar, d 1-2-1822; and R.A. Calendar, d. 8-7-1809. According to these records, Valentine was born 12-24-1774 and died 4-24-1835, age 90 years and 4 months. Obviously the math doesn't work for these dates and at the time the picture was taken (1993), most of the dates had faded and were difficult to read. This was the only stone with markings clear enough to read.
We believe Valentine Cooper was born 1745 and died 1835 at the age of 90. His tombstone says he was 90 years and died 1835. My question is "who are these Calendars that are buried in this cemetery? They are buried on private property near Rough Run, WVa. Thanks.
