RE: Sand Valley Cemetery and Nansels
Thank you for letting me know. I will be going back to the cemetery Labor Day weekend and will take a look at the coordinates. Thank you for letting me know. I will be adding 5 flag holders to the veteran's headstones! I just got them in and they look great!

RE: Martin Luther Slesdet
On Find A Grave the information about Martin Luther Slesdet does not include my father, Gilbert H. Slesdet as a sibling to Martin. Would you please correct this mistake.
Thank You,

Mr. Barbee, the descendant who made and placed the stone, probably put it there in 2012 (when I made the memorial). He was the one who brought it to our attention that the cemetery had been placed in the wrong county (I don't remember now which one, maybe Stanly) and we first contacted you but you had not created the cemetery record itself, so Find A Grave helped correct the location.

Dear Rita,

Thank you for all the excellent work you have done on my family memorials on Find A Grave.

RE: Robert Stewart
Rita, first of all Cabarrus County wasn't formed until 1792. Until then it was part of Mecklenburg County. But I imagine Robert died in the area that did become Cabarrus County. With a name like Stewart, he was no doubt Scots-Irish and a Presbyterian. I would suggest if you know the names/dates of any of his children, you look where they are. My best guess would be to check Poplar Tent Presbyterian (founded c1767) and Rocky River (founded c1755), the oldest churches in the area. Rocky River even has an older graveyard than their main one called the Spears graveyard. If he is buried in Mecklenburg County, check Sugaw Creek (pronounced Sugar), which has 3 cemeteries and also Hopewell. They are the oldest ones in the northern part of the county.

RE: Charles Sauer
Hi Rita,
I have a copy of my Dad's death cert. and a copy of his obituary from the Merced Sun Star Newspaper. Dad was buried in Wnton Cememtary in Winton, Ca. on Dec 10th 1998.I don't know how to access the information from the cemetary or other public records.
I found Find A Grave by a fluke. I can email the copies of the death cert. and Obituary or mail them to you. I would just lile the information on my father to be correct. All of his siblings are deceased. Otherwise Uncle Duke, Bill, Mary Ann and the others I knew could provide the information to you. I was close to Uncle Duke (Wendelen ?) He lived in Merced the moved to Mariposa, Ca. He spent a lot of time with us and he too died of cancer like my dad and like John Sauer. I never meet my Dad's father John nor his mother Katherine, because they both died before I was born. You must be my father's 2nd or 3rd cousin since he was born in 1916 and would be 98 years old now. I can tell you I was close to my dad. He had a great sense of humor, was a kind person and well like. I miss him. Sandy (Sauer) Garretson

Alexander Faires
Rita, thank you for posting a picture of the "new" marker for Alexander Faires as I hadn't seen that one. The 1824 date should be the death date according to the will he left, not 1834 which was obviously added several years after Alexander's death.

(Thomas) Hanuel Edwards
I'm having trouble locating a document that gives his name as "Thomas". His marriage record and the Quaker Monthly Meeting notes use Hanuel. I have not searched weekly meetings though (they are not easily available). One kind researcher on Ancestry responded to my inquiry. There are issues with "Judge Thomas" about his age and such (he's supposed to have served 30+yrs as a Judge before moving--making him about 14 when he first became a judge, but she said there were family matches in documents she'd seen, but also some discrepancies. She will try to look further for us.

Edwards continued
One issue I'm having is calendar dates. Apparently they used the old Julian Calendar format, so "month" dates are often different from our modern Gregorian months. I believe the Julian calendar is about 3 months earlier (need to double check that though). I've noticed these month conflicts on other old websites, and it looks like there's a lot to update.

Hanuel Edwards
I'm posting sources on (free site). His family tree connections are being updated (someone had him merged with 4 different Thomas Edwards!) so I'm working to get him fixed and relinked to proper parents. I've posted a few things there in the memories section, but the updates are slow. Mostly just confirming things people have already researched before.

I was just getting around to sourcing this line in my ancestry tree...and lo and behold Ancestry opened up Quaker resources! I've been glued to the computer all day.

Sorry the photo is unclear. I cleared and cleaned the stone (with water and a soft cloth), took pictures of it both wet & dry, but this is the best I could obtain. If you click on the photo, I have transcribed the inscription for you. He's in a lovely spot, by the way :)
