Oh, before I forget . . .
Since we're working more and more closely on Chatham County interments, I have something I need to tell you, but I don't want to do it on these message boards. Drop me a line via my email and I'll give you the low-down.

You mentioned that you were jealous of my ability to visit Chatham County cemeteries -- where are you operating from, if I may ask?

re: Leonidas E. Brooks nickname
I found "Lonnie" on a family tree online -- no way of knowing if it was from a Brooks family relative or not. So -- using the standards of evidence you laid out in your last message, since his death certificate reads 'L. E. Brooks', and apparently so does the marker in the cemetery, and I could find no confirmation of anything beyond 'Leonidas' anywhere else, I took it off.

BTW, I have a map I'd like to share with you, if you could email me through the address listed on my F.A.G. home page.

Neal Family
Thank you for allowing the edit of my Great Grandfather (Grover Giles Neal Sr.). I have covered allot of ground in my research of the Neal family. Most of the do to the fact that I work and supervise a genealogy room in a library. I would like collaborate with you sometime on research of the Neal family. I have traced them back to my Great-Great-Great Grandfather (William Neal 1818-1888 slave owner) and my Great-Great-Great (Zilphy Ann Neal 1832-1890 slave). Zilphy is where Ive hit a wall cause I can't find documentation that mentions her before she arrives on the Neal plantation.

Susanna A Beaver
The memorial you created for Susanna is so good and very complete. I do sincerely thank you for adding the information on her children - George Henry is my grandfather. When you have time, Susanna's mother was Elizabeth Gean. Also, of interest to family, but maybe not for Find-A-Grave, we have DNA evidence from male Glosson descendants and Male Beaver descendants linking the four male Beaver childen to a Glosson father. In addition to the information you included about James Henry Beaver's death certificate showing Jesse as his father, both Franklin Bernice and James Henry Beaver were born when Susanna was living with her sister Mary L Beaver Glosson in Jasper Glosson's household. Thomas Pinkney Beaver and George Henry Beaver were born after Mary died in 1861 and Jasper married Eliza Margaret Poe about 1874/5. Jasper and Eliza had two children, Jasper L Glosson and Alfred R Glosson - both of whom claimed relationship with the Beaver siblings. In fact they held an annual Beaver/Glosson reunion at the home of Jasper L. Glossonup until 1935 when it was cancelled due to the polio epidemic.

I can't link George Henry Beaver to his mother since I didn't create his memorial either, so I appreciate you adding his name to the memorial you created.

One other thing - you have Susanna's spouse as Jasper Glosson - don't know the technicalities but the two did not marry. Their relationship was widely known in the area, but the did not marry.

Thank you for all you do - Milli

Judith Marshall Stell
Ellen Williams-Beechwood
Memorial 47180920, Ellen Williams's death certificate says she was age 17 and date of death is December 23, 1931. I wonder if the date December 27, 1931 is a burial date? Her mother was Ellen U. Fitts and her father was Harrison Williams (death certificate).
Ellen's mother remarried and her death certificate shows she is also buried at Beechwood Cemetery. She was born November 15, 1895 and died February 9, 1949 and she may have gone by Ellen or Ella Jones, maiden name Fitts. Don't know if she has a headstone and am not finding her listed at Beechwood.
Ellen/Ella Fitts Williams Jones was the daughter of WMB Fitts, Memorial 47476564
Just passing information along. - Judy Stell

Henry Grier Goodman, Sr.
Thanks for your work on Find A Grave. I have decided to work on my nephew's father's family tree and your memorial to his grandfather certainly helps me begin.

Find A Grave not only has expanded my connection to those of the past, but also with new family members of the present. Thanks for your contribution.

Historic Cemetery Committee

The Town of Hillsborough, NC, has formed a new committee, the Historic Cemetery Committee. Its focus is restoring and preserving the Old Town Cemetery, Margaret Lane Cemetery and the old section of the new Town Cemetery (for now). The committee is also researching cemetery records and locating lost stones that may have sunk into the ground. I see that you have listed many, many names in the Orange county cemeteries. I was wondering if you would be interested in joining this committee.

Please email me at if you are interested or not. Your research experience would be very helpful to this group.

Thank you!
Lisa Williams

Purpose of Find A Grave
Many thanks for reminding us all of the purpose of Find A Grave: to record the actual burial location of the many, unheralded individuals who created this nation we call "America".

This is a site where families can be "re-united in perpetuity (I pray that it remains free to all!), but it is not a "genealogy" site. It is a place where we can honor those who preceded us.

Just stumbled on your Find A Grave home page while searching one of those infamous "brick wall" ancestors.

Many thanks for the work that you do - you are among the "Angels" who populate this website. The hours that you spend here are very deeply appreciated by at least one human being - me,and I suspect, many others!

Thank you for enriching our lives.

Ray family links
Happy you figured that one out. So missed her in the same plot as E H Ray. I pulled up the mother's record based on the date and of course a transcribing error maiden name Emary. It was correct on They do a much better job.

Borghild Treff

I am trying to find my relative, Borghild Lee. She was born abt. 1902 or 1903 in Aitkin CO., MN to Anne (Anna) Dreyer and Oluf Lee. I don't know who she married, or when she died. The info you have on Borghild Treff is similar to mine, but the parents are different. Do you have any other information on Treff? Borghild Treff's mother's maiden name is also Dreyer.

Edith Winston
I am interested in updating information on my fourth great grandparents:
John and Edith Winston buried in the Winston Cemetery in Youngsville, NC on the Long Bay Elementary property.
It is my understanding that the graves are in poor condition but through my six years of research, I have their birth and death dates.
I would like to be able to add information to their find a grave pages and that can be done if you transfer my family pages to me. I've been a member of Find A Grave for six years and have 78 accounts.
You can reach me at:
Please subject it: Find A Grave John and Edith Winston.
Thank you so much for your help.
I read your lengthy information and say thank you. I am willing to forward the information I would like to add to their pages, if you want to maintain their pages. I would like to link them to my family for others in my family.
Thanks so much,

RE: Hall Otis Seals #46649774
Thanks...I found several headstones in that area that were moved from East Durham; none of them had dates on the stones. I found a reference in a 1937 list of cemeteries to East Durham cemetery (Col) "near East Durham airport", but haven't found anything else about it. Perhaps it was on land that became RDU. Just guessing.
