RE: William Smith
Hi Pamela,

St Mary's is definitely not part of Hollenback. I think I got it figured out though, and have updated my memorial.

RE: Whitaker Cemetery
Pam, I did get your message but haven't had a chance to respond. Our computer had been acting up, and last week I was actually going to our library to do some find-a-grave posts. I've been working on my mother's family, the Crouch family from Saluda, SC. The computer seems to be doing better now. Our son doctored on it yesterday. ha I'll send you an e-mail. So glad to hear that you have the book Our Children's Ancestry. I wish I could take care of the Whitaker graveyard outside of Milledgeville like you do for the cemetery in North Carolina. I'll be back in touch with you soon. Take care.

RE: Whitaker Cemetery
Hi Pamela, I wish that you could see the Whitaker Graveyard outside of Milledgeville, Baldwin County, GA. It is closed to the public. I managed to see it in 2013 with help of some friends of Baldwin County Cemetery Association. I had hoped to get the cemetery cleaned possibly with their help. They no longer do this. The cemetery is on hunting grounds and is being swallowed by the forest. You can see pictures of it on find-a-grave. Look up cemetery and put in Whitaker, Baldwin County, GA. You can see the history I added and the graves. Have you seen the Whitaker Chapel in Enfield, NC(built by Richard and Elizabeth Cary Whitaker)? My husband and I were there in November driving home from Delaware. I took pictures of the chapel and loved the cemetery behind the chapel, so many Whitaker's buried there. I've since been in touch with Betsy Roberts on facebook. She has the chapel on facebook, and I had posted my picture on that site. Betsy is so nice and has added me to a site on old churches. I'm hoping to go to a homecoming at Whitaker Chapel on June 12. Pamela, if you will send me your address on e-mail, I will be glad to send you a CD that has the book Our Children's Ancestry written by Sarah Cantey Whitaker Allen on it. Sarah was from Milledgville. My grandfather had a signed copy of this book. One of my cousins scanned the entire book on CD, and my aunt in Sullivan's Island, SC, gave me a copy of the CD. I caught the genealogy fever BAD. ha This book is amazing with so much history on the Whitaker family, the Cantey family and other families. My e-mail address is Look forward to hearing from you again, Pamela.

Richard Strauch
RE: Strauch
yes, Barbara is my source. (small world). If one had to guess, I
would guess that Carl Strauch had a sister who married a Protz.

I have recent photos of the cemetery plot where Carl and Bertha are buried with 2 of their children, Emma Pauline Strauch (never married)
and Harry Corolis (?) Strauch who was gassed in WWI. He died in 1960 and supposedly his wife (a wonderful Canadian woman)
arranged for a gravestone marker before she returned toCanada
However the marker did not happen. I was at his funeral. I was thinking about adding a marker and that is actually why I came across your writeup on Carl's death.

Richard Strauch
RE: Strauch

The people who stayed with my grandparents were relatives who just
came from Germany. Their family name was Protz. They were
my father's cousins so Carl Strauch was their uncle.. I have quite a bit of information from a Protz relative. The reason I was curious was that I knew my father had a sister and 2 brothers, but there was also
information of a third brother--it turns out he died at 6 months age and Carl and Bertha also had a daughter who died the day of her birth.

Charles "Carl" Strauch

I am interested in where the information came from on
the death of my grandfather Charles "Carl" Strauch, buried
at the St. Nicholas Cemetery in Shavertown, PA.

RE: Morning Star
You are welcome. Sorry I was slow figuring out what you needed. I had to remember which of my friends cousins had sent the headstone photo, so I could track down a location.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
On further investigation, it appears that this cemetery belongs to the Morning Star Baptist Church in Rocky Mount. Hope this helps.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
I was helping a coworker with some family tree questions and several of her cousins sent pictures and info. She has since passed away and I'm afraid I have not kept in touch so I don't know who shared the picture and burial location.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
Oh, the Whitaker grave. Sorry, I'm a bit slow on the uptake. I did create the memorial as part of an ongoing research project for a friend. But someone else sent me link info and the photo in an email. I looked to see if I kept any info on the sender but it doesn't look like it. Is this a family member of yours?

I'm sorry, you have me confused with someone else. I've never been to Edgecombe County.

RE: Bernard Sontag
Hello Pamela,

It is not unusual that his name would not be on the memorial. That is common at many cemeteries here. Apparently the family did not pay to have his name engraved.

I can only go by cemetery records in identifying whom is buried at a particular grave site. According to cemetery records, there are 27 people buried at that site, of which I am sure you were not aware.

When I take a photo I always try to include all people buried at the site. I did so in this case. I do not know how or what the relationship these people have. Below is a list of names of all those buried at 14 Clover Cedar Aloe:

First Middle Last Name Age Date of Burial

George Mrs. Abrams 32 12/27/1918
Joseph E Abrams 52 01/02/1967
Sarah Clark 64 10/04/1927
Millie Clark 72 06/20/1969
Thomas E. Clark 68 01/19/1965
Thomas Clark 03/13/1907
Annie Clark Frey 54 05/02/1933
Jacob Frey 04/16/1945
Clara Gbolpa 47 05/22/1937
Vivian Lillian Kelley 62 04/26/1985
Clayton S. Kelley 57 02/27/1976
Emile Knesel 38 02/06/1911
Edna Knesel 2 10/21/1908
Alma Landreaux 79 09/28/1976

Louise H. Tauzier 79 12/01/1983
Child Louise Tauzier sb 05/11/1941

I hope this helps.

Unmarked Graves
Wow! There were so many, I decided not to annotate anything. It is possible, I guess, there could be that many unmarked graves. But I suspect people have entered relatives/spouses of people already there, not knowing if the added person belonged there or not ????

THANKS for trying to find their graves!

RE: Shady grove
Hi! Can you send me a list of their names, and I will annotate their memorials as "unmarked" or "not at this cemetery"

Many thanks!

Added by PATTY McFERREN-BLANTON & ... on May 08, 2015 3:08 PM

RE: Shady grove
Pam: Thanks for your reply & volunteering. A while back, I took (what I thought was) the entire cemetery. The rows were not "plumb," and it was easy to miss many. After I posted the photos I took, put in a photo request for all the ones without grave photos.

It's possible some of the people are not really buried there (some contributors put husbands with wives, and vice-versa by default).

Anyhow, if you can find any of them, it would be wonderful for those poor descendants---who may never know what their ancestor's grave looks like!
Thanks for all you do!

Glad to hear from you again!

RE: Maria Anna Klipperhahn
You're very welcome.It's disappointing not to find markers so I try to at least show the area if I can. Take care.

Added by Roibeard on Apr 28, 2015 7:41 PM

RE: Maria Anna Klipperhahn
Sorry about the confusion. I don't know if you read the comment I wrote to the top photo, but there was no grave stone with Maria's name on it at the location given. Apparently hers is an unmarked grave.

What I did was to photograph the general area where lot R-171-5 might be by showing that a nearby stone was marked R-171-2. Grave lots sometimes have either 6 or 8 graves in them. That would be 3 in the front row and 3 in the back or 4 in the front row and 4 in the back.

I estimated grave R-171-5 would be in the back row somewhere behind the Murphy stone.

RE: Elizabeth Gilcher
Hi Pam,

Can you send me the memorial number? If I see it I can probably figure out where I got the info.


Added by Steve225 on Apr 18, 2015 10:56 AM

M "Alex" Alexander
Hello again, Pamela! I drew a "blank" on M Alexander with 8 Dec 1845 as birth and/or death. Checked, Family Search, and one other data base without any luck.

Records get very scarce before 1900 when most states began documenting births/deaths. Anything in the 1800 is really scarce.

I fixed his name, and now the FindAGrave Search engine works, so people can find him/her.

There's one more source (but I live 40 miles one way to that cemetery), and that would be to call the church and see who has its historical records.

Sorry more info was not available.

Transferring Back
Hi! Researched Joseph W Price in all the data bases I have access to, but only found a few new things. Posted them in his bio section. Perhaps close relatives will see the memorial some day, and send you an Edit Tab change :)

Thanks for "adopting" him, back
