Memorial #23265373 Wm Turner Adair
Hi. I'm wondering if you know any information on Wm Turner Adair & Georgia Ann Yarbrough's daughter Ida May Adair Stephenson? While updating the burial listing from the Graves Co KY Cemetery Book 1, I came across Ida May (Adair) Stevenson buried in Harmony Cemetery. She seems to be the only Stevenson listed there. However, as I searched through Ancestry, trees from this website spell her married name as Stephenson. Plus Graves Co KY Cemetery Book 1 lists her as the following: STEVENSON, Ida May (Adair) Nov 8, 1876 - Mar 24, 1902 wife of M.V. Stevenson. As my research deepen, I noticed that has her death date as March 24, 1904 and her marriage date to M.V. Stephenson June 24, 1903. Could M.V. Stephenson be Morgan Stephenson? Did he die in 1904 as well? I'd appreciate any information.
Thank you for your time and support.
Shirley :)

OKelly Whitehead Cemetary
Ms. Yarbrough,
The description in Find A Grave says that the O'Kelly Whitehead Cemetary in Oglethrope County, Georgia is 300 yards west of HWY 22, .09 mile from the intersection of the Collier Church road and HWY 22. Most of that area is open ground and no cemetary to be found. There is a Webb cemetary back there that is walle in and concreted over. Are you sure it is not 300 yards EAST of HWY 22 instead of WEST? In any case I have been there twice and spoken with the Whiteheads that live at that intersection and cannot find the cemetary. They know nothing of it.
Can you help me.
or Thanks

I have checked at both Union Cemetery and Hillcrest Memorial Park in Bakersfield. Neither Elmer, nor his wife Annie, was buried in either one. Since they both apparently died in Riverside, Riverside County, CA, I would suspect they were buried there. I say that, but will keep looking. Never say never.

Charles Byrd - Memorial# 78765613
The Charles Byrd that everyone has attached to Margaret Amanda Messer in the 1930 census was the husband of Margaret Juria (Wright) Byrd, daughter of Richard Murphy Wright and Mariah Margaret Stillwell, whom he married 1896 in Swain Co, NC. His children were born in the Nantahala Township of Swain County. He was NOT a husband to Margaret Amanda (Messer) Byrd. She was still single and still living in the home of her parents in the 1920 census. It's unknown who Margaret was supposed to be married to, as there is no formal marriage record for her in 4-counties. Charles and Margaret Juria (Wright) Byrd had the following children: Margaret Albia, May 1897; Mary Mariah, Jun 1898; Austin Elmer, Feb 1900; Ida Pearl, Nov 1901; Ralph Eugene, Apr 1905; Mophia, 1908; and Iola, 1910. Charles and Margaret were still alive in the 1940 census, living back in Nantahala Township, Swain County, NC. They had lived in Union County, SC, Gaston County, NC, Henderson Co, NC and then back to Swain County. It's estimated he died ca. 1944 in Swain County.

I have changed his burial info since you forwarded me the new info. I am also transferring his memorial to you. I am not related and I think it's only right that you should care for his memorial as his descendant.

He is probably buried in the Fly Cemetery that is in Maury County. It is near where the Rogers family lived. To the side of New Hwy 7 & Leipers Creek road in Maury County. That sounds like the area he lived in.

Wheeler, Alvin D. 1864-1912
Hi. I would like to add the following information to:
Feb. 18, 1864 - June 24, 1912
Note: Death Certificate shows that birth and death dates are the same June 24, 1912, but we know that this is untrue because of the tombstone and the death certificate shows he died at the age of 48y 4m 6ds. This would equal to Feb 18, 1864 which the tombstone indicates. Cause of death, 3 shots from a revolver in the hands of Rufus Billington - instant death - Dr. J.W. Forrest "dead when I got there".
Tombstone reads:
Alvin D. Wheeler
Feb 18, 1864 - June 24, 1912
Assassinated by Rufus Billington - he was award a life sentence
Thanks, Shirley :)

RE: Thank You are wonderful
Hi, Myra ... You have a very nice memorial for Mr. Roy Yarbrough. (So many of our F.A.G. memorials for military guys don't have any mention of their patriotic service to their country. It's a big deal to me; my father was in the army during W W II, and when he needed nursing home assistance later in his life, he couldn't get a penny because his military records were destroyed in a big warehouse fire. They did manage to send him a military footstone for his grave.) Without tombstone photos, many of our veterans' memorials are without acknowledgement of their self-sacrifice and dedication to their good ole U.S.A. Thanks for your message to me!

Myra, I have the Mt Pleasant church of Christ cemetery records and do not find a Yarbrough. Where in the cemetery are they buried? Do they have a grave marker? I have taken pictures of most grave markers and have not come across a Yarbrough. Thanks for your help. Laura

Hi, Myra ...

Roy's wife, Violet Maud Tinsley Yarbrough, passed away in 2011. Her parents are buried at Smackover Cemetery, as is Roy, but I haven't found Violet's grave. Do you know if she is buried here or elsewhere?

Rev. John M. Yarbrough
Hi. My name is Katie Pflum. I am trying to find information about Rev. John M. Yarbrough. I believe he is my great great grandmother's dad. Her name is Sarah "Sallie" Yarbrough. She married my great great grandfather Dr. Grandison Lee. They are buried at the Pleasantview Cemetery in Owen County, KY. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

William C Yarbrough
I have been looking for my grandmother's half brother Carl Yarbrough for many years. I think the Find A Grave Memorial #3146847 is his. You left your name on the memorial - that is how I found you! The info I have is that William Carl Yarbrough died in Little Rock, AR. He never married. I believe that he was adopted or put into foster care. His original last name was Ferguson. Does this sound familiar? You can email me at and I can provide additional info.

RE: Joe
Thank you for the kind words, but I'm not sure I've earned them. I'm still grinding along trying to find and document descendants of Joseph and Lucy.

Working on the branch of the family that are descendants of Lucretia George and William Baker. There are a lot of them in Randolph County so sorting them out and finding proof is a chore.

Thomas William J Rhyne
HI Myra,
I have some questions about Thomas William J Rhyne, Find-a-Grave memorial # 81760003, that I hope you can answer.

First, do you know who his parents are? That would help me tremendously in trying to figure out many things about his family. I found him on a 1900 Gastonia Town, Gaston, NC, census listed as J W Rhyne married to Marjorie aka Marjana Yarbrough Rhyne.

I've been researching some Melvins and found Huldah Lila Melvin, Find-a-Grave memorial # 83157007, married Walter N Rhyne, Find-a-Grave memorial # 73306144. They had two sons, Max M Rhyne born abt 1920 and William E Rhyne born abt 1922. I found both boys living with Thomas Otto Rhyne and his wife Lois on a 1930 census from Gastonia and they both were listed as nephews, which means Thomas Otto is their uncle.

I cannot find a connection from Thomas Otto Rhyne and the boys' father Walter N Rhyne and thought you could help me out with this. From what I can see, Walter N Rhyne's father was William H Rhyne and mother Julia. I found their daughter (Walter N's sister) buried in Oakwood. Her name is Nena Rhyne Long, Find-a-Grave memorial # 15530562. I hope you can follow this. lol

I need to find out who Thomas William J Rhyne's father is and maybe if his father and Walter's father are one in the same or are they related in some other way.

Thanks so very much. I hope you can help me with this mystery.
