Very thankful for your work, Wondering if you have done any research on cemeteries in Mingo WV, Looking for burial on Montiville Deskins, the cemetery was supposed to have been moved per VDOT? Born 1858 died 1900. Also a murder trial for William Deskins born 1851 in Tazewell Co VA died 1908 probably Richmond VA prison, suspected of more than 1 murder, only charged with 1. Son of James Monroe Deskins and Polly Ann Harries of Tazewell VA. Great website!!

Hi, Daisy. I document cemeteries in Mingo County but no recollection of seeing a grave for Mont Deskins. I do heavily research regional crime so I’m interested in hearing more about the Deskins murder trial.
