Thanks so much to Katherine Martin Blair and the dozens of other Cone family genealogists for much of this information and to the late William Bernard Cone, Jr. for creating the site. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
