Blake - McMechen Cemetery, WV

Since I am a direct descendant of Isaac and Jane Blake (Ireland), when I spotted some old stones in McMechen Cemetery (Marshall County, WV), I thought I would grab photos. As it turns out, this family would be cousins of Isaac at best, so I was wondering if there was anyone who would be interested in the photos listed below. The information here is all I could read from the stones.

James Blake: d. 1840
Grace w/o James: d. 12-28-1849, 59-11-10
Grace d/o James & Grace: d. 2-9-1832
George (probably a son): b. 8-11-1808, d. 7-13-1883
Catherine w/o George: b. 2-1-1811, d. 6-13-1859
James s/o George & Grace: b. 10-24-1833, d. 6-27-1859
Albert s/o George & Grace: b. 1-20-1848
Elizabeth d/o George: d. 4-21?-1844, 2-5-18

Would be nice if someone could connect these folks with my family, but preliminary research on Internet seems to show they came from Scotland. In any event, if anyone is interested in these pix, let me know.
