James Little Cemetery
I don't have any real contact information. The couple who owned the land, last name was Barbee. You could just ride out there and knock on the door. If coming from Union County on Sikes Mill Rd, cross the river, 2nd drive on the left (that's the way I remember it - hopefully there is not another driveway in there now - too bad they don't just cut a drive to it but guess that would be a lot of trouble).

RE: James Little
Hello. I don't own the property where the James Little cemetery is and it's usually best to let a property owner know that you're going to be crossing their land to get to the cemetery. Because of the damage of his stone and subsequent repair you probably shouldn't do a rubbing - the pressure might create more problems but use your own judgement; try a small area and then stop if it looks like the stone wasn't going to be able to take it.

RE: Samuel McKee Hall @ South Mound
No, sorry, New Castle is a four hour drive from my house. I took a bunch of pictures there last fall when I was in New Castle doing reseach but I don't plan on going back this year.

Rachel Neely
Hello William,

I really do not have any additional information. You might have some luck by contacting Bev, the owner of the pages for Matthew and Margaret. You can contact her with her link

I did find a census record...1850 Federal Census for Yancy County, NC. There is a Margaret Tweed, age 55, living in the household of James Tweed. It indicates that she was born in South Carolina and was born abt 1795. This might be your Rachel since Margaret and Matthew were living in Rock Hill, SC at their death.

But there are several Rachel Neelys in both North Carolin and South Carolina in the 1850 census. Since only heads of households were listed in census records prior to 1850, we would not find her listed as Rachel Neely unless she was was still single at the time of the 1850 census.

The cemetery where Matthew and Margaret Neely are buried has lots of old unreadable graves. I had a hard time finding their grave stones.

Wish I could be more help. If you are a member of you might be able to find some more details that might help in your search. Since your Rachel may have been in Madison County, it makes sense that this Rachel in Yancy County might be her. Yancy, Henderson, and Madison Counties are all mountain counties and it does say this Rachel was born in SC, where we know that Matthew and Margaret lived there at their death.

RE: Thanks!
I think what is referred to as the "old" part are the eastern sections of the cemetery. It is a very large cemetery. I'll see what I can do as far as a location shot. Have a blessed day!

RE: Samuel McKee Hall @ South Mound
I'm sorry but I'm no longer living in that area. I moved to Pennsylvania 2 years ago. I've neglected to change my address in my profile apparently.

RE: Samuel McKee Hall @ South Mound
I will be glad to try and get the pictures you are requesting. So glad you have the exact locations. That is very helpful.

Stockton gravesites
Hi William, thanks for the info on Davis and his wife Mary Elizabeth Whiteside and hooking them to their daughter, Sarah E. Stockton. I've connected them both. Had some difficulty bringing Davis up in a search so it really helped to have the link. I've found that Davis Stockton's parents are Samuel and Prudence (Torbet) Stockton from the book "The Heritage of Tutherford County, NC", pg 394, item 593 under Samuel Stockton's biography.
Happy hunting, Lizbett C

RE: George Martin Hall & wife
There is a site by Teri Pettit that has a lot of inf on the Hall's. It is Teri Pettit's Genealogy. On her records George Martin Hall is buried at Hall Cemetery, Slab Camp in Rowan County. He is my 3rd Great Grandfather and Cynthia Ann Hall(1850-1911) was married to Samuel Caudill(1844-1927) and they were my Great Great Grandparent's and are buried in Lee Cemetery, Morehead, Rowan County. I hope this will help.

Isaac McKee
I am a descendant of Isaac McKee. You mentioned in your report that his son James was buried beside him but that Isaac McKee was not the son of the Revolutionary soldier, James McKee. To my knowledge, he is the son of the Revolutionary soldier, James McKee. Do you know something that I don't know? I would very much appreciate it if you can shed any light on this for me. Thanks so much!

I have a few more photos of Araetta Hall's stone and Minerva Thurber's stone. They are also of a higher resolution than what can be posted on the web. If you would like those, let me know and I will email them to you. My email address is

re: Christian Best
Just thought I'd let you know that Christian Best (Carpenter's Campground Cemetery, Maryville) seems to be unmarked: Dale Morton, a prolific transcriber of cemeteries in this area noted that this cemetery had 150 graves marked with fieldstone, and another 200 or so unmarked. Given Mr Best's early birth date, it's likely that his is one of the earlier graves.

I did go scour the older part of this cemetery to see if I caught anything that had been overlooked or recently uncovered, but I didn't see him, either.
