RE: Reverend Charles Roads
You are so very welcome Jim. And I want to thank you for the nice email, that is why my partner (also named Jim) and I take the photos for Find-A-Grave, I know personally how exciting it is to come across a photo of a relative's final resting place. I looked through the photos I still have for the Greenwood Cemetery (ones that do not yet have Memorials) and added the Roadses that I had, hopefully they will be more of your Mother's "peeps". There were no relatives of mine in Greenwood, we were in the area, staying at a campsite, and I searched for local cemeteries that had low percentages of photos and that is why we chose this particular cemetery.
We are full timers in the RV, our goal is to visit every state, I may just have my work cut out for me with the cemetery photographing!
Have a great day.

In our searching of various cemeteries, I also made an awesome find- my 7th Great Grandfather, who fought in the Revolutionary War!

RE: Martha Dickey Crawford
James,

The date of birth is not calculated. My source is "The 'Old Northwest' Genealogical Quarterly", Vol XIV, 1911, page 135. An article there, titled "James Crawford" written by Harriett McIntire Foster (a descendent) includes this text:

"I have recently be so fortunate as to receive from the Bureau of Pension Department of the Interior, the following records of James Crawford, hertofore unknown to his descendants.
'James Crawford was born in Ireland, (family tradition says Straban), April 10, 1751. Came from Ireland to Nova Scotia in 1763. Was living in Amherst, Nova Scotia, at the time of his enlistment, Nov. 5, 1776. He married Martha Dickey on the 4th of July 1776, in Nova Scotia. She was born August 1, 1752.' This pension record gives the military record of James Crawford..."

I have not gone myself to the pension records to confirm this claim - but I don't have reason to doubt it as Harriett was a prominent researcher of her time. I have found it very frequent that early headstones are unreliable for DOB - even if an actual date is given! Best of luck with your research!
