If they lived in the western side of Yadkin in the Windsor Crossroads area, Walter & Elizabeth may have married in Wilkes or Iredell counties too. Here are the WINDSOR marriages in Surry from 1771-1899.

RE: Rebecca Bell
The citation for Elizabeth being 75 was from a transcription of the 1850 Surry census (south division) published by Carol Leonard & Agnes Wells. I'll send you a pdf file showing the data of her and Walter living next to Cranberry Bell.

As to connections in GA? I'm from Savannah and my mother and her folks were from Pilot Mtn, but have no direct connections to Yadkin. Great times in the 1950s going up to Pilot Mtn and seeing what farm life was all about. Am thankful for the memories God let me experience and try to get up there once a month or so to see my 91 and 94 yr old aunts. Sometimes I just ride thru the countryside just to breath the country air. :-)

Hi again, I forget to answer you question on cemetery records at Pleasant Home in Roaring River. All I've seen is a map of the cemetery with names of those buried there.... and it is not complete. If you need something specific let me know and I'll research it for you. I know over the years some graves had only rocks as a marker, and some of them were discarded many years ago.

Hi Allan,
Yes you're right. I found the problem and submitted a edit for it. Jennifer Norman created that link from Opal's memorial 73212820. Seems she has two husbands.

I hadn't realized you harken back to 8 of the families @ Wallenpaupack!!

Please do let me know if you have any history or genealogical articles online for linking to, or would write for, the Minisink Valley Genealogy projects... there's now the original blog, a Facebook page, and a Flickr group. Photos, scans of documents, etc are always welcome.

This article may be of interest to your heritage:

Mahala Kimble Atherton @ Paupack
Looking at the cut of the stone in the one photo, after the fact, hours after having left the cemetery, I'm wondering if her stone ever had her name ... should have examined the top edge, may have been the remnants of "Mother" ??

It is a lovely graveyard, set on a hill above the lake (which was created many many years after burials began)in a pine wood, and surrounded by a lichen covered stone wall. There are a couple dozen unmarked field stone headstones.

Mahala Kimble Atherton @ Paupack
Hi again Allan ~
I just posted two photos of Mahala Kimble Atherton's broken tombstone located in the Atherton plot to the immediate left of the large granite marker for her son, Chester & daughter-in-law Eunice Atherton.

Her name is missing altogether but the dates are almost exact.

If I get up there again I'll shot a photo of the family plot - wasn't thinking it through, battery was running low!

Best, Jane

Went back and looked at Conrad's photo. I don't see anything but the headstone. What are you referring to? Is this the photo you mean?

RE: Conrad Jacoby
No, I didn't notice the stumps, I'll go back and look. I agree, it's a shame. I do about as much looking at trees in cemeteries as I do stones :)

RE: Conrad Jacoby
I contacted the woman who took the photo and she wrote back with the translation, it is:
" Here lies Conrad Jacoby, born on June 7, 1730 and died on March 26, 1795. He was 64 years, 9 months and 19 days old."
I'm working on finding out more about his parents and when his family immigrated to the U.S.
Do you have anything on the immigration?

Any idea was the inscription on his stone reads? I am descended from him and researching the Jacoby family.

Please forward to your friend Carole for me
Carole Conrad has her msgs disabled. If you know her email address please forward this reply to her as she left me a msg regarding my Bowers family. Carole Conrad (#46532185).

Carole sent me a link showing that another person has my family with a John Bowers as head of family.
Please ask Carole to read my bio on for "Mary Bower Reeves" 46410625, as I cite her father James Bowers Last Will, and have 15 yrs of research to back up the parent of Mary Bowers Reeves.

Thank you for your assistance.
I think folks who leave msgs should keep their msg options open as they can receive a reply.

Robert Pellett
Hi Allan,

I'm not related to the Pellett's and other than an article about Robert in the Daily Independent I found I haven't found anything else about children.

I'll be in southern Illinois in a few weeks, if I have time, I will stop in Jackson County Historical Society and see if I can find any information for you. As for the photo's, are any of the people in the photo's on Find A Grave? You could post the photos on the memorials. I'm sure someone would love to have them.

Let me know if I can help in any way.
Thanks, Kim

Buffalo Cemetery, Sanford
The old cemetery in the woods behind Buffalo Church where slaves and later African-Americans are buried has been surveyed, given a new name, and deeded to several black churches. It is called "Black Heritage Community Cemetery" and will be entered in findagrave soon. Lois
