RE: Thela Denton Parker
These folks are my grandfather lived with them when he was in High School in the 1920s (My GF died in 1930). Thela Denton's younger sister would tell me stories about my GF...and get this....her nickname was "Ted"...too funny!

RE: Thela Denton Parker
Yes! You got it right...the 1930 census is incorrect because Sam Ola is a Female (I sent a correction to Ancestry). Such unusual names for these folks. Hope this helps...Kay

Yes, the photos were taken at Seaside Memorial Park. I have made notations under the photos (captions).
Also you have an edit pending which will reflect the plot and niche information. Peggy

Arthur Robbins, Sr., is listed in the records of the Mill Creek Baptist Church as being “dead, September 1819”.

Numerous other records pertain to Arthur Robbins, Jr., and other probable children of Penelope and Arthur Robbins. These individuals and their descendants have not been researched as part of this project.

RE: Arthur Robbins #140792723
Mary Penelope Sellers is the sister of my great-great grandfather Matthew Sellers (1743-1807), children of Benjamin Sellers and Sarah Hickman. The book "Descendants of William Sellers, Sr. of Isle of Wight, VA., 1657", indicates Mary's second marriage to Arthur Robbins took place in Edgecombe County, NC on April 14, 1764. Arthur's birth is estimated at 1747. The book does not show any children from the marriage. Based on his age and where he lived during the Revolutionary War, it would be impossible for him to not take part in the War effort. If he had also fought in the War of 1812 at the age of about 65, he would have achieved a high rank in the service. If they had a son, Arthur Robbins, Jr., that would be more likely. Proof of his serving in the War of 1812 would be based on the mention of his wife.

The Daughters of the American Revolution database recognizes him as a Patriot, North Carolina, Rank: Civil Service.
Service Description:

The database shows his death date you have as being correct. They had a son Joel Robbins, born 1784 at NC, and a son Absolom Robbins.

National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution database has an application pending for Arthur Robbins as a Patriot, born 1748 and died 1819.

Arthur Robbin's brother-in-law, my great-great grandfather Matthew Sellers, is recognized as a Patriot by the NSSAR, for contributing supplies to the troops. Matthew and Mary's brother Elisha Sellers and his son both fought in the Revolutionary War.

RE: Pictures
I will ask my grandfather and aunts and uncles for any pictures of the Bice family and would be glad to email them to you.

RE: Pictures
My grandfather is Jerry Anderson, one of the eldest sons of Elmo and Myrtle. I have a few pictures of Elmo and Myrtle that I can add on here and tag with their obituaries, and I know my aunt, Minnie Alice Anderson Martin, has more pictures of the Bices. I have a fair amount of work done on the Bice family tree. I haven't worked on it recently, but I have back to 1809 tracing Myrtle Bice Anderson to Jonathan Bice, but not too much on William Jackson Bice, other than my uncle being named after him. So William Jackson Bice was the father of my great-grandmother, Myrtle Bice Anderson, correct?

Lyneva I've researching the Westmorelands for years other them the death certificate do you have any other documents with Susan's birth place as Ashville NC on it. Also the Death certificate says her father was Bluford Westmoreland I would like to know if John Westmoreland middle name was Buford or Bluford I've found it both ways. You can contact me at Pat Westmoreland

I wonder if you have anything that will verify Oak Hill as the resting place for Inza and Howard Foster.
Records at Oak Hill say they have no record of them. Please let me know what you think re: this.
We have many cemeteries in San Jose.

RE: First Posting
What I have been doing is sending a flash drive to people who have the information, they load it on the flash drive and mail it back. This seems to work better than trying to send it all electronically or by paper. I do have paper copies which I printed out so that I would have a hard copy. I did find out that Harriet Bice (Stacy's sister)who married John T. Bice must have died during child birth. I found her daughter,(Artamassa)being raised by Lucinda Skinner Martin in the 1870 Census(she is 64 years of age and the child is 4). I also found her marriage to John T. Bice in the Alabama Marriages 1816-1957. The decedents of Asa and Mary Martin are having a reunion on the 24th of this month. I am trying to contact Bobby Steven Martin to get some additional information from him on the Martins. I will gladly send you everything I have that interest you, all I need is the address. I would be interested in any pictures that you might have of any of the Martins. My GGG grandfather Asa Thomas Martin was killed at the age of 26 during the war. I have no pictures but do have copies of the letters he wrote home. I've only been doing genealogy for around 6 months now. I have not paid for Ancestry yet because I am trying to find all I can for free.

Sorry, I got some of my information out of order. Stacy Martin was married to James M. Bice and her sister Harriet Martin was married to John T. Bice. (they were probable brothers). It is also noted that John Robert Martin was killed in a gun dual which took place after a card game dispute or something political.

John Robert Martin
He was also my GGGG grandfather. A cousin of mine did research on the Martin line back in 1989. I have a copy of the information he acquired. There were 8 Children born from his marriage to Lucinda Skinner. They are listed as John D. Martin/Louisa Glenn Martin, William David Martin/Mary C. Hart, Asa Thomas Martin/Mary Ann Mizzell, Ellen P. Martin/Stinson Vaughn, Stacy Martin/John Bice, and 3 sisters(no spouses noted) Mary, Elmira, and Harriet. My GGG grandfather is Asa Thomas Martin. He was killed in 1862 in the Civil War during the Battle of the Seven Pines. He is buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Richmond City,
Virginia. He wrote 38 letters home to his wife Mary. These letters have been handed down in my family, approximately 154 years old now. I have copies of these letters. The originals are with my mothers cousin. When he entered the war he left a pregnant wife, a 3 year old son William, and a 1 year old daughter Matilda. Matilda Martin Whetstone is my GG grandmother. She is buried in Shiloh Cemetery in Columbus, Georgia. His pregnant wife gave birth to another daughter. In Asa'a letters to her, he suggest the name Artimissa, thus she was named. I have a lot of information that was done by Bobby Steve Martin, who is a descendent of the 3 year old son, William.

Hi, I noticed that you added the picture of my great-grandfather, Elmo Anderson. I was wondering if you were of any relation to him and if you had any other pictures of him.

Is your Andrew Westmoreland tombstone picture from the 1974 cemetery cleanup? Another Find A Grave contributor just visited the site yesterday and took new pictures of all the tombstones.

Westmoreland connection
I too am related to Robert Perry Westmoreland and Thomas House Westmoreland. I am having a difficult time finding a hard fact connecting the two as father and son. Do you know have any document that could help me? My application for the SAR is being held up until I provide something that pairs them as father and son. Thank you.
