RE: Willie Radford
:^( Too bad Ida's d/c [informant was her half-brother Fernie Mosley - not her husband] at didn't give the cemetery - only that it was in Woods, NC.

Willie's d/c didn't give any better info. Too many 'unknown' issues makes me wonder who the informant 'CW Cook' was that didn't know :^(

Appreciate the feedback. Thanks.

RE: Willie Radford
Henry - Thanks for the info!! Has there been any success in finding where he or IDA MOSLEY RADFORD are buried? She was my GM's half-sister.

Thanks, again.

RE: Fagan Jones Sr

Thanks! :-) That's Jennia or Geneva, and yeah, I
accidentally missed her, and I'm not quite sure about the accurate spelling of her name yet. I probably would have had almost all of them had some people Not run one of my online friends away when she tried to photograph the entire Cemetery. It's truly sad because people apparently don't realize or understand that they are negatively hindering or impacting their own Ancestry when they do things like that. I Want my family, say 200 years from now, to Know that I existed, and where my remains are. :-)
Blessings, San :-)

RE: Wilmer Willoughby
He is not listed on William B or Emma Roena Parrish Willoughby's. Can't you add him?

Wilmer Willoughby
Donnie, I was wondering why Wilmer is not included as a son of William Benjamin & Emma Roena Willoughby on find a grave.

Mark Garris
Hey Henry,
Blount Caswell Garriss is my great great grandfather, so if he's your great grand uncle that makes us 1st of 2nd cousins. The reason that Blount's surname is misspelled "Garries" is because the engravers, who I'm sure created the marker well after the Civil War, mistook the double "s" at the end as an "es." Blount was the only one in the family - and possibly his father, Lewis - who used a double "s" on the end of Garris. In the 19th century it was a common vanity to use two "s" on the end of your name when it ended with an "s." That is because cursive script at the time - and for 2 or 3 hundred years - uses a flourish in the first "s" of a two "s" word ending. It is something like a lower-case "f" without the cross line. It's one of those quirks from the past like using two lower-case letters at the start of a word or name to capitalize it.

This is my line: Blount Caswell Garriss 1816-1865 > James Henry Garris 1844-1914 > William James Garris 1884-1923 > Henry Jennings Garris 1912-1993 > Mark William Garris 1949-.

Memorial # 46957147 - how were you able to determine death as Jul 9 1931? Have looked for d/c and unable to find.

He also married Ida Mosley [1900 1926], but she died as result of pregnancy. Ida was half-sister to my GM.

Blount C. Garris
Just FYI, I have fulfilled your request for a photo of Blount C. Garris (marker says "Garries") at Woodlawn National Cemetery. This cemetery is extremely well maintained, and his stone neat, clean, and easily readable (:

Ray Vick
Annie Brown
I saw your comment on Find A Grave about her. I was researching my mother-in-law's family whose mother Nita married George Washington Brown between 1924 and 1930 almost certainly in Tarboro since that is where both were from. They had no kids but my wife thinks she has a photo of herself sitting on "Granddaddy Brown's" lap about 1950. When she finds it I will post it to his Memorial# 78640642.

I will also get George's memorial creator to link to Annie.

Redmond Harrison cemetery
Hi Henry,

Today I visited the Redmond Harrison cemetery near Bear Grass. It is in worse shape than when you were there, because I could only see one headstone. We know more people are buried there, but the weeds, trees, etc have overcome their headstones, so they cannot be seen unless somebody gets in there with some serious landscaping tools. It's very sad. I did add photos of the cemetery and Redmond's headstone.

Lizzie Coley
My Grandmother was Nancy Pearl Coley sister to Lizzie. We visited a couple of times with Lizzie back when I was younger. It is nice to see someone that I can talk to. Would it be possible for us to swap Genealogical info on the family. I have a lot of early birth certificates and death certificates on the Coley family. My grandmother is buried not far from the Radford's old homestead. The Coley Family Cemetery there are three buried there. Zollie Coley his wife Alice Coley, and Pearl Coley. The Coley Family Cemetery is on Harrison Rd in Nash county. Hope to talk to soon Woody

RE: Washington Branch Cemetery

Hi there Henry :::waving::: I'm so very sorry for the delayed response to your inquiry about who is actually buried in Washington Branch Cemetery. I have never been to this Cemetery and can't begin to tell you who is there. But I'll say this; if the Death Record says the person you are researching is buried in Washington Branch Cemetery, then that's exactly where they are buried. I say this because Death Records are generally initiated and recorded at the time the Funeral arrangements are being made by the family member with the Funeral Director. Funeral Homes have a legal "requirement" to record where they inter the remains of every person by Law.

The Memorial I posted at Washington Branch Cemetery was based on actual "Death Record" information I came across online as I was seeking my own family members final resting place. I do that, even if it isn't my own family members in order to assist others in finding their loved ones, as I know the Death Record is even more reliable then the Census information in "most' instances as far as "burials" are concerned.

Since your friend's family member's Death Record says he/she is buried there, you might want to Post their info on Find A Grave as this gives your friend a reliable avenue to look for this burial, and it also assist the dedicated Find A Grave Members who go out to photograph headstones when visiting cemeteries.

Blessings, Sandi :-)

Unfortunately Mary does not have a headstone. Got the location from the funeral home and have checked the area twice thinking I might have overlooked it, but cannot find one, sorry.

RE: William Parrish in Thomas Vail Cemetery
Thanks Henry for this information. We're distant cousins. I'm also a disabled vet so I do a lot of work on my Parrish family tree almost every day. Do you do ancestry?
