Hello, I am trying to validate the parental information on for Ruffin R. Massey. The information on the page shows Ruffin's father was Samuel Simeon Massey who moved to Alabama from NC. Where did this information come from? Thank you. Anita

Thank you for transferring Jesse to me. I'll work on it this weekend and let you know when it's done. Would you also be kind enough to transfer his wife Frances Moore to me and I'll make the appropriate changes. I'll also follow up with Mark Morrow on Mary Brown Dickens Graves and with Cindy McCachern on Harriet Phillips Dickens Webb. FYI - Frances was my 3rd great-grand aunt.

RE: Margaret E Brafford #95651396
I don't have a copy of it- it was before I was smart enough to document and scan everything I found. I started genealogy when I was in my late 20s and didn't realize how important it was to copy every thing I found. It was one of those family passed down things...just let it go- the E is what shows on all the records so that is just fine. I have the name correct in my tree and that is what matters to me. She was very young when she passed of pneumonia so she is probably not remembered by very many and the relatives I got the info from are long gone.

Again, thanks for ALL that you do and keeping accurate info out there.I am sure that we will run into each other again as it appears we don't live too far apart.

RE: Margaret E Brafford #95651396
hi.....she is my second cousin twice removed....census records and death certificate just have the initial "e". Family Bible has middle name listed as Edna. That is all I have to go on and I totally understand. I have about 4 people that constantly send me bad info- I have had to report them to Find A Grave several times. One has even been told not to contact me any more. If you want to add that is great- if not I really do understand. Thanks for all that you do- I see your work all over!!!!

First, I want to research the information you submitted for Mary Lay at St. Stephens Cemetery, just because I'm curious. Main reason for this email how do you create the memorials you have posted? I'm certain you haven't visited all the burial sites for your creations and am just curious where you obtain the names.

Jesse Dickins
I have posted to Jesse’s memorial a photo of his will which is clearly signed “Jesse Dickins”. The codicil indicates that he died after April 1838. In addition, my respected fellow family researcher Terri O’Neill has informed me that the grave markers for Jesse and Frances were placed by Ralph Stanford in the mid 1900s. He also placed markers that contain erroneous information in other family cemeteries (Stephen Moore and Stanford).

Robert Dickins #35952748
The family bible contains a pencil annotation that he died in 1808. However, his descendants filed a petition in Person County court in the June session of 1804 requesting his lands be divided. The petition states that he died sometime in 1803. Here is a link to the petition images:

RE: Jesse/Jessie Dickins/Dickens #35953104
If you are interested I can send you the link to the will of Jesse's son Stephen Moore - who also used the spelling Dickins. I have not found his grave but his will is dated 1850 and matches his enumeration in the 1850 census. Regards, Steve.

Added by Steve on Oct 18, 2016 1:02 PM

Jesse Dickins
As you requested I have posted a photo of Jesse's signature to his memorial. It clearly shows the spelling of his name in 1831. Additionally, Katherine Kerr Kendall's transcriptions of documents witnessed by Jesse consistently show this spelling throughout his term in office. If this answers your question, let me know and I will remove the photo from the memorial. This document is actually posted on If you would like the link I'd be happy to provide it. Regards, Steve

RE: Weller Family
You can have all the Weller information.
I'd rather see someone find a grave for the
mother, Rachel Southwood. She is more likely
to be the daughter of Katherines brother, John
Southwood (1839-1862), but I cannot find
any records to prove who the parent was.
Might be graves of all of them in Chinn
and Sunset Hill Cemetery.

RE: Nellie Ransom Dayton #163048995
My source was the Historical Outline of the Ransom Family of America written by Wyllis Ransom in 1903 page352. It states the Ellen Ransom and 4 other children were children of Ezra Ransom. Ellen was born Sep 17 1866 in Flint Michigan. No middle names was used.
I can send you a copy of that page if you wish to send me your mailing address. The book is also on line Ezra is my fourth cousin once removed. Very distant. I was on Ezra's memorial recently as I was given a photograph of him by my cousin. It is now on his memorial in Find a Grave

RE: Pine Hill Cemetery, Alamance
That's a real good question. I BELIEVE Pine Hill was integrated. There is a "Freeground" section that I assumed was the "Colored" section but there aren't too many folks buried there. I know the Northlawn Cemetery is in the more predominantly black neighborhood and I'm pretty sure it has been around for at least 50 years. If you don't find who you're looking for in Pine Hill I would try Northlawn second.

Mary Rogers Johnston
After further reading Larkin Chew Johnston's quote"...was bur. by her brother John." I think this means that she was buried adjacent to him and not that he was the one that buried him.

BTW, John Rogers (1717-1797) was the oldest child of John Rogers (1680-1762) and Rachel Eastham (1685-1765) of King & Queen County, VA.

John Rogers (1717-1797)and Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) had a couple of famous nephews. Their sister Ann Rogers (1728-1798) married John Clark and was the mother of Gen. George Rogers Clark "The Conqueror of the Northwest" and William Clark of the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Mary Rogers Johnston
Hi. I have reason to believe my 7X great-grandmother, Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) may be buried in the Rogers-Robertson Family Cemetery. Mary was the sister of John Rogers (1717-1797). Mary married Larkin Chew Johnston. Here is a quote from the Larkin Chew Johnston Bible, still in existence today:

"My wife Mary Johnston departed this life 10/25/1800...was bur. by her brother John at his place on Hico on Tues. after she died being kept out of the ground for four days according to her request. We lived together upward of 55 years in which time she brought me ten children eight of which is alive now - 1802."

This bit of information conflicts with John Rogers dying in 1797. But I presume that Larkin was referring to his brother-in-law's place being on the Hyco River.

Does Larkin's description of John Rogers place "being on Hico" fit the Rogers-Roberston Family Cemetery? Thanks for any information.

Jesse Dickins
Here is the synopsis of Jesse Dickins’ will from Our Webb Kin of Dixie, W.J. Webb, 1940:
Dated 1832 (codicil 1838). Probated in Person Co., N.C. 1838. Witnesses: Portius Moore and William R. Reade.
Names: Daughters Mary B. Graves (deceased [she died in 1838]); Ann M. Webb; Grizey P. Smith; Harriett P. Webb.
Sons Robert Dickins and Stephen M. Dickins. “It is my desire that Silva be free. I give to my son-in-law Samuel H. Smith my negro woman Silva with request that he take care of her during her life. My negro man Isaac I request my executor to provide comfortably for during his life.”
I think that the date of the codicil and the naming of his deceased daughter support the 1838 death date. I have been researching the Moore and affiliated families for over 25 years and appreciate the many contributions that you have made.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Jones Holloway #143834998
"I'm curious how you came to place Alexander and his wife in this New Bethel Cemetery and not the New Bethel in Durham where he was living. I've added his Death Certificate to his site but it just says "New Bethel Cemetery". Did you have a cemetery survey with their names?" Aug 26, 2015

Her death certificate that you posted to the memorial shows "Wake County". If you feel this is incorrect you can request a photo and let me know. Cemetery Census doesn't show them in Durham or Wake County. October 27, 2015

"As you suggested, I did request a photo and this was the response I just received -
I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. After not being able to locate this grave, I did a little more digging and believe he is buried in another cemetery:

This New Bethel Church cemetery is located in Orange County, (not far at all from where he died, which was Durham.) More then likely he is buried there. In 1973 it was recorded that there were at least 103 unmarked grave in that cemetery.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it.

I really think both their sites should be changed to the other New Bethel cemetery that is near Durham where they died - unless you have a specific source stating they are buried in the Garner cemetery.

Carrie Fuller Carden
I am the one doing Ellen's edits while she is ill. You requested Mrs. Carden's middle name to be listed as Wesley. The only source I can find is on her daughter, Delsie's SS appl. and it lists:
Mother Name: Carrie Westly

Please send your source for Wesley.

Also, on Mr. Carden there are various names for his middle name that I found, Lendo, Lindo, Lendon. How do you what me to handle that?

Thank you!! :)
