I WISH THEY WOULD LET US PUT THE DEATH DATE AS "AFTER 1920" OR AS WE DO IN GENEALOGY REPORTS "LIVING ON [DATE].
I COULD NOT FIND ANY OTHER INFO ON WM, WIFE 1 OR 2, OR OLIVIA.
I DID SPEAK WITH LARRY - HE SAYS THE DATE FOR THE OTHER MEMORIAL (CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH - THE ONE WHERE THE DEATH RECORD WAS DIFF THAN TS) WAS NOV. HE COULD NOT DISTINGUISH ANY OTHER INFO. YOU USUALLY GO WITH THE RECORD CLOSEST TO THE EVENT BUT WE STILL DON'T KNOW UNLESS WE GET THE ORIGINAL RECORD. ALSO, I MADE ERRORS ON MY DAD'S DEATH CERT AND THEY WOULD NOT LET ME MAKE ANY CHANGES. KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU ARE ASKED TO COMPLETE A DEATH CERT. DON'T LET THEM PUSH YOU. GO HOME, GET THE INFO, THINK ABOUT IT, THEN COMPLETE THE FORM.

Since these people are yours, do you know who their parents are? I have a Thomas for Oliver. An Elijah signed the bond for Nancy, but I can find nothing more. Also is Perry on the tombstone. This is the first time I have seen what the P stood for.
26 JAN 1837: FERGUSON, Oliver P. and Nancy BROWN, Sur. Elijah BROWN, p86

|Bill Carter||More Rakes family info.|
John Marshall Rakes' parents are listed as Lewis Marshall Rakes and Nancy A. Smith Rakes on Rootsweb. Here's the link
It also lists Lewis Marshall Rakes mother as Celia Leffew which is another link between the Rakes and Leffew families. I believe Nancy Janney Rakes grandmother was also a Leffew. I also found 2 more of Robert and Nancy Rakes children and got them linked. I had heard growing up that they had 16 children; according to a page copied from a family bible that I have only 14 are listed. Perhaps the 16 includes the 2 infants that are buried at the family cemetery. One of the children I linked was Laura Rakes Young. Her and her husband are buried at Maple Grove church cemetery which is nearby the family cemetery. I posted photo reguests for both. My uncle told me that Aunt Laura was instrumental in getting all her grandparents graves marked towards the end of her life, so I think she would appreciate that we are interested in preserving family histories. I've also posted pictures of John Rakes (from WV) and Laura and Lillie Rakes Young. I've got pictures of some of Robert and Nancy's other children but I don't think they are on Findagrave. Also the Rootsweb page with the info on Lewis Rakes lists the family cemetery as the Samuel H. Ferguson cemetery so I guess the Ferguson's were there first lol.

I added Mary's parents - thank you for providing the information.

|Bill Carter||RE: James M. Rakes & John M. Rakes|
Robert and Nancy Rakes had a son named John, born July 21, 1900. According to my uncle(who took me to the cemetery a few months ago and gave me a brief Rakes family history), John Rakes moved to West Virginia and lived there as an adult. My uncle didn't mention the John Rakes who is buried there being part of Robert and Nancy's family. Not sure who he belongs to.

|Bob Tuggle||RE: Rakes-Ferguson Cemetery|
When I search for Rakes Cemeteries in Virginia the Ferguson Cemetery does not appear. i can see why tyou would want no duplication but I want the Rakes family members to find it as easily as the Ferguson family.
So no. Not without further understanding of how this works for the Rakes descendents.
Added by Bob Tuggle on Dec 07, 2011 9:50 AM
|Bill Carter||RE: Ferguson-Rakes Cemetery|
I can transfer my Rakes listings to the Ferguson-Rakes cemetery if you like. Robert and Nancy Rakes were my great grandparents; I have some of their children(including my grandfather) who are not buried there linked to them, as well as Nancy Rakes parents and a couple of her grandparents linked as well (along with pictures for some). So I would prefer to leave my entries intact if that's ok. I agree that duplicate listings and two names is confusing. I think its amusing (though not surprising) that the Rakes descendants call it the Rakes/Ferguson cemetery and the Ferguson's call it the Ferguson/Rakes. There are a few other entries that I didn't post so you may need to contact them also. I didn't create the listing for Rakes-Ferguson either so I don't know what to do about that. Let me know if this is good with you.

|Charles Ferguson||RE: Velma Ferguson|
My God,I have missed so much !We have to talk one day.We always visited the Fergusons in Roanoke/Salem and they never talked about family history.It seems as though they didn't care about it.I never visited Rocky Mount as a child and I only met Eva a couple of times.That is a sadf fact.For someone who love shistory so much,I have missed so much on my family.While I am saddened,I am also thankful that kin like you are here to tell me the stories you have heard.When the older folks pass away,they take so much with them.Thank you so much.Only now do I realize you were the JDN on Find A Grave.DOH !!
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday is a great one.I will be thinking all day now about Velma.
