The marker photo you attached to memorial 70305559 for Samuel Pennell is actually the marker for Richard Vance Pennell. It is also correctly attached to Richard's memorial.

I am doing research for a a friend at work and Dorris is in her line. Dorris parents were Thomas Milton Hutchens and Margaret (Maggie) Hutchinson. Both parents were born in North Carolina.

People who say they don't work
I get a kick out of the description of people who say they don't work, yet their contributions to society are far greater than many top CEOs -especially here on FIND-A-Grave!! You are one of those people, and I was inspired by your description of how you find a HOME among your couzzens in Wilkes County!! I hope to find a home for ALL the displaced persons, by helping los veteranos discover their majestic heritage/herencia majestuosa by researching their Family names, and writing/blogging about their experiences. Ultimately, the reward will be to MEET our loved ones on the Other Side,and they will remind us all of the time we recorded their names in The Book of RE-MEM-Branches - Malachi 3:16. This is the Bring His Light to the World, where loved ones have gone to Prepare for His Return...where we who remain will Meet them in the Clouds of Heaven, and bring again His Peace on the Earth!!!

Zeb Parks Marsh
Zeb Parks Marsh is my Grandfather. Thank you for posting this information and photos of his grave. I didn't know much about my real Father's family while growing up. I did visit a few times in my youth and always loved my Grandpa Parks and Grandma Jessie Marsh.

He did have one child named Harold Dewey Marsh who was my biological Father.

God Bless

RE: Cove Creek
Thanks. I do not know if it was a church, but believe it existed somewhere around what is now called Ruitan Park Rd. in the Mulberry Community to up to the Baptist Home Church area....these are best guesses I have researched. Supposedly was about five miles outside of North Wilkesboro in the 1930s. I am aware the city limits were closer to the town of North Wilkesboro( more in Fairplains) at that time and have since been moved out. Thanks so much. Blessings.

RE: Judith Barber
Hello Mr. Fairchild. This is Charlene Jones, and yes I am a direct descendant of Judith Barber. Here is the line: Judith Barber, Lucy Barber, Annie Jones, Marion J Dula, Anne G Dula Howard, and I am Charlene Howard Jones. I am the eldest daughter of Anne and Ernest Howard. You may have seen my additions to lines in Find A Grave. I grew watching living history with Grandmother Marion. She was born in 1897 and had pictures of everyone in her home and a large Bible that she used to record births, deaths, marriages, etc. Mom Marion received her teaching certificate from Bennett College in 1920 so she was a recorder of our history. Yes, Mammy Judy was exceptional! I would be honored to assume responsibility of Judith Barber's page. Please send any guidance or instructions to me at your convenience. If you have read the Record of Wilkes series, I think you will agree that humanity and leaving an honorable legacy matters to all of us. You have shown that characteristic and know that it doesn't have an ethnicity. I shake your hand over the internet and say thank you. -Charlene H. Jones

Rufus Carmel Lowe #72554118
There is a second grave marker photo added to Rufus Carmel Lowe's memorial but the name on it is Rufus Carroll Lowe.
The dates on the marker are 20 April 1924 to 11 June 1963.
The dates for Rufus Carmel are 1882 to 1948.

Obviously, the footstone is not meant for Rufus Carmel Lowe. I don't see anywhere on the memorial who it belongs to and wonder if it was placed on the wrong memorial. I'm guessing it could be a child of Rufus Carmel Lowe.

Would there need to be a change on this memorial. I really appreciate all you have done for the Dowell family and its offshoots.

RE: Cove Creek
Yes again, thank you for being such a help. The last I have found of this cemetery is a project done in the 1930s. I expect it is somewhere in the Mulberry Community as it was listed as being about five miles from North Wilkesboro traveling on Hwy. 18 N. The N. Wilkesboro town city limit at the time would have placed about five miles in Mulberry by my calculations and relatives I believe were buried there who also lived around and in Mulberry. I think it got confused with Cane Creek and I have seen a few potential errors, but Cove Creek and Cane Creek were two different areas. I am not in the area to look at maps and can find little online in the way of maps for that time. The family that remains there is uncertain of the whereabouts of Cove Creek, but have had some speculation that it is located in one of two places: being a private cemetery off Ruitan Park Rd., aka in past as Windy Ridge in Mulberry, now there is a Windy Ridge Rd. which is not the same road,(off Ruitan Park Rd. makes the most sense in mileage to me), or a private cemetery somewhere around Shumate Mountain which is closer to the northern Wilkes line than five miles outside the town of N. Wilkesboro. You are a great contributor to this site and your knowledge is very, very helpful. Blessings to you.

Matthew Brown
Brown Family
Thanks you so much for the photos from Center Baptist in Wilkes County. I visited there in 2000 to see my grandfathers grave (Harden Brown), but with your photo's I have now been able to see the family around him. I have also noticed that a lot of the cemeteries within NC are family cemeteries and will be visiting Olde Garden Cemetery in the Miller's Creek area where my uncle and aunt are buried. As I, it seems like a lot of my family lived in the Washington DC area.
