Birth: 1884
Death: May 16, 1960
Cleveland County
North Carolina, USA

Mr. Stitts was originally buried in the Cleveland County Home cemetery located at the fairgrounds. On April 26th, 1994, his resting place was moved to its current location.

We at Broad River Genealogical Society are striving to identify this gentleman and and the 52 souls who share his grave. If you have any information to share please contact me.

A book from the old County Home recently became available and we now know that Mr. Stitts was an African American who entered the home on January 31st 1942 and passed away on May 16th 1960.

Perhaps these few clues can lead us to a family for him.

Update 9/18/2008: Mr. Stitts death certificate is on file at the Register of Deeds office in Cleveland County, NC. Unfortunately it does not offer further clues to his family, as his parents were unknown and he had never been married. It stated he was born in North Carolina about 1884 and was apparently in good health as he had not been sick since the day he entered the County Home. His death, attributed to "Coronary Thrombosis", was instantaneous, and he was buried on 17 May 1960.
