RE: Geo. Crayton & Nancy J. Johnson
You are most welcome! Until 2 years ago, Holts Chapel Cemetery was unkept and open to vandalism. The church who has proprietorship has fenced the cemetery and keeps it gated and locked. The caretaker is a fantastic guy and is always willing to help me locate graves there. The church has restored and reset many markers but so many have been broken or destroyed that many graves are now unmarked. I was happy to locate the Crayton graves there and find their markers intact. You may have noticed another surname on the headstone--May. Buried with George and Nancy are Roy Everett May (Sept 17 1901-July 17 1974) and Eliza A. Crayton May (wife of Roy E. May; Aug 1 1898-July 15 1958). Another grave in this family plot is for Floyd A. Jeffries (June 2 1917-Dec 17 1943). I thought you might be interested in case any of these are relatives.

re: Eddie Floyd Crayton

He is now linked to his parents. Good Luck in your research endeavors.

Eddie Floyd Crayton
Since Eddie isn't one of my entries, you will have to go to the person who put him in and request that he (in this case David Oxford)connect him to his parents.

To do that, go to the top of Eddie's entry and click on the little "edit" tab at the top. When that comes up, just put in your request with the names and entry numbers of both parents.

David should be happy to do that for you. He's a regular on Find A Grave.

Nancy Crayton
Hi Bob,

I've added Nancy's mother's name to her entry. Take a look at it and make sure that I did it right.

Thank you for letting me know, and if there's anything else I need to add, I'll be happy to.

RE: James Charles
That is great to hear Bob. I love a success story at F.A.G.! Especially if I played a tiny part. Bob, I accepted your photo request for Adolphus C. Crayton. I wanted to make you aware that he is listed as Creighton, Date of Death: 03/23/1964, Burial Date: 03/25/1964. His cemetery Location is
Section: PESCUD, Lot: 18-B, Plot: 3.

BTY, there is a JOSEPH CRAYTON, Birth and death unknown, located in Oakwood at Section: WEST BRANCH, Division: H Lot: 26 Plot: 3. I am 99% certain his grave is unmarked because I searched for his grave twice when I searched for Monty Creighton. There is a Hubert and a Francis in the same lot by the Crayton name.

CREIGHTON, JOSEPH MRS,Death: 08/14/1892 Section: WEST BRANCH, Division: H, Lot: 26 Plot: 3, is also there.

Forgive me if I have mention this before and you already have this information. I just wanted to make sure that you were aware.

Evelyn Crayton
The grave of Evelyn Crayton in located at the Friendship Church in Greensboro vs the Friendship Church in Monticello. You should move your photo request to that cemetery. It is incorrectly listed in both cemeteries. I checked the one in Monticello and didn't find it. I then checked both cemetery surveys to determine that she is buried in Greensboro.

PS Bob,
You are aware that there are three other Pennington's buried in this cemetery? They are:




They are of more recent burials so you might not be interested but I just wanted to run this by you.

RE: Pennington Brothers
Bob, Rick uploaded photos of the marker shared by mother and son as I understand it. You believe Sylvester had a brother and you are looking for the brother and the father? Have I the correct understanding?

Their Markers are directly in front of the Creighton lot. The markers I took pictures of several weeks ago for you.

Philly Pennington
I went out to take this picture soon after your request but my camera quit working as I prepared to take it... Have a new one now and made a picture of Philly's marker and posted on his memorial this morning. There are three graves in this lot. They are Philly , Sylvester and Artelia.

RE: Crayton-Rosson-Spears
Was glad to take the pictures for you and was happy to find Gilmer's stone which was hidden under the small pile of stones. I frequent this grave yard quite often and have noticed that the ground keeper seem to not be very careful lately with freshly chipped, broken or knocked over stones. And I still have the full size versions of the pictures I take if you would want that. Good luck in your searches.

RE: Monty Crayton/Montey Creighton
You are most welcome Bob. I have more information for you that I think you will find interesting and useful. Montey (that's the spelling on his grave marker) and his mother's cemetery location is in the West Branch section H, Lot 26, plot 4 and plot 3. According to cemetery records, there are two more graves in the same lot but there are not any markers for them. Plot # 1 is Hubert Crayton birth unknown, died in 1920, and in plot # 2 is Francis Crayton birth and death date unknown.

As soon as I can, I will create memorials for them and post a picture of Montey's marker and Lot 26 in the background and then transfer the memorials to you. I'm sure you will be able to find more information on them with your searches.
