I have deleted my memorial, however I am always happy to transfer any memorial to a family member. The next time just request the transfer, because I will not be deleting any others.

RE: Durham-Sherrill Cemetery found
That is fantastic news! Did she record the coordinates and physical address? That information can uploaded to Find A Grave so that others can find it in the future.

Well Said
Thank you for your comments on your bio page. There is so much poaching going on with lifting of complete narratives, photos, etc. that the jails could not hold all the miscreants. Ancestry and others have fostered a nest of vipers and thieves. I, too, have found almost everything I have done to be copied over, modified erroneously, onto these alien sites...without my permission. If only they would not change the data thru typos, etc. I can never get in to correct it back to the way it should be. It's somewhat of a "wild west" out there of entitlement of information, regardless of the effort needed to generate the photo or data in the first place. You have correctly described the issues and Find A Grave will do little about it (since they are owned by the crowd). Sigh!

RE: Bethel Church Picture
You are very welcome. It's actually a small booklet that includes names of current and past members (from back then!) I got when a cousin of my grandmother died in 1986. I'm glad you appreciate it.

RE: Silentangel
No I haven't contacted Find A Grave about her yet. I need to get together the memorial information for my family and contact Find A Grave and ask them to transfer them. I believe there are around 31 in the same cemetery. I'm guessing maybe she passed away, too bad I don't know her real name, she probably lives local to me and I could try contacting her. Let me know what response you get from Find A Grave.

RE: Edward Bray 55998977
Thank you so much for responding. I'm helping to work on an application for the DAR. My Edward Bray (1760 - 1840)was born in Orange Co NC; married a Nancy Dowdy (1760 - 1830); and was living in Monroe Co KY on the 1840 census.
I have a Quaker record that shows an Edward Bray Admitted on 6 Apr 1799 with father, Henry Bray, in Surry NC. Obviously different Edwards. Do any of these names and places fit into your Bray family notes?

Evan Baker
I am working on my Baker line. I see you have Evan Baker buried in Harrision county, Ohio. But another Evan Baker's will was probated in 1835 in Tyler County, WV. could this be the same person?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Greetings
The information on my father isn't completely accurate.
In his marriage to Gertrude he had one son and one daughter.
Steven Lee and Cheryl .

After their divorce, he married my mother, Agnes Elizabeth Fife. They had two sons. Randall Matthew born 1966 and myself 1963.

Thanks for all your work in the family tree!

Dirty tactics ...
"I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The Find A Grave memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped." Sherlock

I stopped posting pics long ago when I (and my hard working cousins) got "used & abused" when we allowed a certain person in to our private cousins group. He took everything from all the pics, documents, research notes, and gedcom then claimed it all as his own. Pics I posted are showing up everywhere. I (and many devoted cousins) worked long and hard investing a lot of time and money (as you have done). It is very sad that people take advantage and have the nerve to take full credit and not acknowledge the hard work of others. Shame on them!

RE: Sherrill line
It looks like we are both stuck on the Bailey Line. If you would like more information on the Sherrill line I would be willing to share. I had done a lot of research years ago when Bill Sherrill from Texarkana, Arkansas called and asked if he could come see my records. He and my father both came and had a great visit. It took him several days to go through what I had collected. He then went beyond my work, went to England for more research and eventually published 2 books on the Sherrill line. He passed away a few years ago but his books (although errors from contributors exist) are quite a work of dedication.
My grandmother, Stella Susan Dula Sherrill returned to N.C. in 1915 with my father who was 11 at the time. Cynthia Caroline Barlow Sherrill gave my grandmother the old family spinning wheel which she brought back to Washington with her. It is over 300 years old and sits by my fireplace. Do you know the story about James Melton Sherrill's first wife?

Sherrill line
I am a Sherrill through George Folk Sherrill & Irene Bonham, James Finley Sherrill & Stella Susan Dula, James Melton Sherrill & Cynthia Caroline Barlow, John Sherrill & Mary Ann Oxford, Isaac Lowrance Sherrill & Mabel Durhan, William J Sherrill & Susannah Isabella Lowrance, Capt. William Sherrill & Marie Agnes White, Adam Sherrill & Elizabeth Corzine, William Sherrill & Margarette Rudisil. The last (Wm. Sherrill & Margarette Rudisil) still need proof.
We have a number of same family lines. I am having difficulty with Mabel Bailey c1758 - 1811 married John D Durham. I can find no concrete proof of her parents. Is it possible for you to help?
My e-mail is
Sherrill, Carlton, Durham, Bailey, Oxford, Barnes Laxton, Barmes & Lowrance are strong names on my Sherrill side. I found an amazing record of burials in the Belleview Cemetery, Caldwell Co. N.C. read by Mary Anderson Montgomery & published in 1989. Vol 1 & 2 are located in the Lenoir Library. The cemetery office did not have complete records of burials in this cemetery. When we walked her records to find James Finley Sherrill's first wife and infants by his 2nd wife
we found them just as she recorded them. She did an amazing job plotting the cemetery and recording all the markers at that time. It was published by: Staley Publishing and Genealogical Research, P.O. Box 7, Patterson, N.C. 28661
Her name and address: Mary Anderson Montgomery
240 Looper Street Drive, Granite Falls, N.C. 28630
I live in California but have been to Lenoir several times to research family. The Sherrill home built by James Melton Sherrill is still in the family and until about 2 years ago was inhabited by Bryce Sherrill. He passed away last year. His nephew now owns the home. It is on Knox Sherrill Road in Lenoir.
I also have a list of burials in the old Sherrill Cemetery, just off Lower Creek Airport on Cottrell Hill Road. A relative had walked it a number of years ago. Since many stones had initials I worked with Bryce to decipher most of the individuals. Both James Melton Sherrill & Cynthia Caroline Barlow are buried there. I would be happy to send you a copy if you are interested.
Best wishes, Sharon

Merry Delight Foster Payne
Hello, My maiden name was Payne and yes related to Merry's husband. He was nephew to my grandfather.
My sister visited with them in NC in the 80's, and I exchanged letters with Delight a few times from California.
You posted a picture on our memorial for Merry, Find A Grave Memorial# 94814706. Do you know her exact or approximate age in the picture? May I use it on my personal family tree?. I assume you obtained it from a family member or your personal collection, is that right? Thank you for any help you may supply.

RE: Ferguson-McGee Cemetery
The purpose of my message to C. Fairchild is to provide information about where Amelia Rosetta Walker Barlow is buried so that her burial record on Find A Grave can be moved from the Walker Family Cemetery to the Ferguson-McGee/Jeremiah Ferguson Cemetery, where she is buried beside her husband Rufus Barlow. I, too, am a descendant of Jeremiah Ferguson. Another correction that needs to be made to the Walker Family Cemetery is the removal from information of George Washington Walker about his being a 2nd Lt. in the 66th NC. This is incorrect. His letters home to his wife clearly reflect that he was a private in Co. E, 1st Artillery, NC 10th Regiment. Regimental records reflect that this is correct. Perhaps you would be willing to make this correction to his information by removing the part about his being a 2nd Lt. in the 66th NC. Thanks so much for your help.

RE: Ferguson memorials
No, I have not visited this cemetery, and I am not now physically able to do so even if I lived closer to the area. I, too, hope that somebody will be able to go to the cemetery and take pictures. I believe I have two memorials in the cemetery to which you refer. If I haven't already done so, I will request photos - maybe that will inspire someone in the area to go there and take pictures.

RE: Silentangel
No I have not received any reply from her. I was told that in situations like that you could contact Find a Grave and they would investigate and transfer to you if she does not reply. someone told me this, I don't know it for fact. After the holidays when I have some time I may do this myself.

Mabel Durham
Greetings, I will be happy to add her maiden name. However I do require your source. I checked DAR and they list a Molly Hawkins as the spouse of John Durham, Burke county. I found a Mastin Durham which I believe is her son. He states in his pension application He was born in the County of
Hanover Virginia in the year 1755. In the year 1779 he removed to the County of Wilkes in the year State of North Carolina. He doesn't list his parents. The will of John Durham is witnessed by 2 Bailey's but other than that I can identify nothing that indicates Mabel's maiden name. Also if this is a direct ancestor I will be happy to transfer her and her husband.

Thanks for letting me know that. Which child of Roxie and Harvey do you come down from? If I calculate right, we are 4th cousins.

A cousin is a cousin!!!

Glad to meet a new McGee cousin.
