Hello Bud, First thanks for the book you gave Larry to give me on the Shamblins. Larry promised to get me your address and or phone number but I haven't as yet obtained it. I lucked onto this message board and read several of your messages. I would like your e-mail address and also phone number in that I would like to talk to you. In the meantime I wanted to mention a couple of graves that are in the Schoonover cemetery at Blue Knob. I have forgotten all the details at this time but will go out and look again if you are interested. A hewed rock on an adult grave with name of A M Shamblin and a childs grave beside it and I believe Child of A M Shamblin. Initial and date unreadable. Dad died in 1949 and as a small child I accompanied him to the cemetery and helped him clean it. He never mentioned who was buried there. I did not become interested until after he passed and a former neighbor attempted to identify some of the graves, some of which he was correct on and others he wasn't. All Mother knew was that it was a friend of grandmothers. I have in my records Angeline M da of Lawson and Charlotte Pierson Shamblin that m an Underwood. Nothing further. Joseph and Charlotte McKee Pierson were parents of David Stewart and Joseph Luther Pierson. David Stewart m Margaret Peg Summers and Joseph m Elizabeth Hull Summers da's of Jehu and Joanna Davis Summers. My grandmother Elizabeth Margaret Pierson was da of Joseph L and Elizabeth. Charlotte Pierson wife of Lawson Shamblin was her double first cousin. I have in records that Charlotte P Shamblin was buried in Pierson Cem. at Dorfee. Can you confirm. A da of David Stewart Pierson, Martha Jane m Joseph D Schoonover whose son David Newton Schoonover m Barbara Ellen Shamblin da of Lawson who named a son Joseph Lawson Schoonover. Their grandaughter sent me picture of Lawsons grave in Arlington. I sent Marlin and Mrs. J Davis a copy but never did hear from Marlin. The date of death on photo plainly shows 6-30-1865. You alluded to this in your book. My e-mail address is Phone 587-4683 Walter B Schoonover
