My husbands father was Lola Roper Liles brother in Wilson N.C. Purvis Graham Liles was the oldest of 12 siblings of Joseph K. Liles and Mary Catherine Brown Liles.Purvis is my husband James Donald Liles father but he died in 1983 in Wilson. We make trips to Wilson and will be there this June. My husband graduated from Coon HS. Lola was the fifth child of this large family. All the 12 children have died so we do not know the full story. We thought she was 16 and wondered why she died so young. My husband heard that she was a beautiful young lady. Hope this information helps and if you find out more information please email me firstname.lastname@example.org .

Thanks for looking into this for me, I know that he did die in NC, and I have his death certificate, and it says he is in the hospital cemetery in Raleigh (Spelling may be incorrect on that), I am not 100% sure if this is the right cemetery, his Death Cert. is under Mr. Ziza Green.

Thank you for taking the photo of his stone. And I am glad you told me about the beauty of the cemetery. Living across country, this means a lot to me.

in Raleigh. I notice you have claimed 2 photo requests at this hospital. I have a relative buried there, but didn't know if there are markers to take pictures of.

Yes thank you, when I called about information the man on the phone was very short and to the point and emphasized these "rules"

You are a special angel to go out of your way to photograph the Starling family cemetery. The Hertiage Center will be lucky to have such a wonderful peron working with them.

Thank you so much for the Daughtery photos from Creech cemetery. I know just what you mean about being unable to turn your camera away from a marker the earth is reclaiming - I have to photograph it and post it and find out to whom it belongs. I spent my weekend in the cemeteries, too and am looking forward to gentle fall weather for more of it.

Sorry to keep bombarding your page with messages.
I have wondered whatever happened to the guy, too. The newspaper article had his name but I couldn't find any information on him. It also said that he heard what happened and came to her house and was arrested when he got there. It didn't say what he was arrested with, so I am very curious about that. I even tried the Wilson Police Dept. When I told them I was looking for information from 1928, they looked at me like I was certifiably insane. I guess those records are long gone.
If you have an ancestry.com account, I can tell you how to find the news article. It was in a Gastonia paper so it must have been kind of a big deal at the time. It was written between the period that she was injured but before she died.

I am in Walton County near the Gwinnett County line. I can't add Lola as a child as I did not enter her memorial. How complete is your ancestry in Coweta County on Find A Grave?
Added by GA Firefighter on Sep 27, 2010 5:09 AM
Unfortunately, it gets sadder than what was on the death certificate. I had heard rumors that she was stood up for her wedding, and the newspaper article confirmed it. She was set to get married that day, and the guy just never showed up. He was 19 and she was only 15. Its the kind of stuff that sounds like a movie, but its sadly very true in her case.
I would love to see her family's pictures as well. I could make their memorials and request their photos for you to claim, or you can make the memorials. What ever works for you.
Again, thank you. I truly deeply appreciate it!

I do appreciate your rapid response to the photo request. I certainly did not expect such a rapid result. Thanks again, GA Firefighter John

First, thank you so very much for taking the photos of Lola's grave. It means a lot to me.
Second, I know *some* of her story, but not as much as I would like to know. When I lived in Wilson, I found out about her because I lived in the house where she passed away. The only information I have found on her so far is what was listed on her death certificate and in a one-paragraph article from a newspaper in Gastonia. I've been meaning to go to the state archives and research her more. If you have any information about her, I would *love* to hear it. I know it sounds weird, but I think about her at least once a day.

The "Georgia Firefighter" notified me that you had volunteered to take a photo of my father's grave. What a wonderful work you are doing. I can't express how much this means to me. I am now 64 and only have one memory of my Father, and I have always wondered about his burial site.
So far, I have not been able to access the photo, but perhaps it is not posted yet. I will keep trying, but just wanted to let you know how much your efforts are appreciated.
