Go to Family Search.org - key in name Georgia
Chronister - select Marrige - enter Virginia as the state and the year 1916-1916.
Happy Researching.

RE: Photo James Robert Webster
Yes, that is correct. Here is the caption which I included with this photo...
"This is the family plot marker, there is no marker on James' grave. Left of James is a marker for Carl W Webster b.Oct1,1903 d.Sep24,1966. Right of James, 2 graves over is a marker for Clarence W Webster b.Jan2,1916 d.Feb5,1945."

RE: Emma Taylor Photo Request
Hi Barbara!

Sorry it has taken me awhile to accomplish this, but I found the Taylor family cemetery and it is in excellent condition easily accessible from a nice lane off of Haw Branch Road. I'm still processing images and didn't see Emma's right off the bat, but there are a number of markers with only initials. I hope to post all the grave photos within the next week or so.

Mary

P.S. The Edwards part of the cemetery is also well-tended and I have a number of pictures of those graves, as well.

RE: Emma Taylor Photo Request
I have seen a picture of the "graveyard" and know where it is. From years ago, long before I learned of Find-a-Grave, when I tromped across pastures in Wisconsin and Iowa looking for my own ancestor's graves, I recognize the hazards of doing so and I'll check it out anyhow. If it doesn't look that bad I'll give it a go, and then I'll probably take a day off from my gym routine. If not, at least I'll be able to report back to you on the accessibility of the site.

Sanders
Hi Barbara,
I am still looking for the grave of Thomas Sanders. I live by the Onslow Memorial cemetery but am having problems finding the graves. I did however find some other Sanders that might be your relatives. Please tell me if these names sound familiar:
1. Henry V. Sanders nov 2 1895-mar 16 1962
2. Mae Mills Sanders oct 22 1900-oct 18 1982
3. Rranklin M Sanders 1917-2006
4. Estelle W Sanders 1927-2003
5. Carrie W Sanders 1924-1990
6. W Jimmy Sanders 1948-1979
7. Haywood Sanders 1925-1981

I have pictures so let me know if you need them. I'm still looking for Thomas Sanders (I found out he is buried with Chasity Sanders), I'm not giving up.

Hi!

Got it, thank you!

I'll send an invite to you as well.

I'm excited to find out if we are related. Thanks so much!

RE: Wilkinsons
I couldn't find your tree by the name. Do you mind sending a "Guest" invite. That way I can compare my Wilkinsons with yours. I'll send an invite to you on mine if you haven't already found it.

That is exciting about the church records! Elon has a lot of great information about the area. I need to make a trip to the library soon. I'm trying to locate some information about an old Holt's Store/Post Office to hopefully find an old photo of it. The original building is gone but I'm hoping one of the local history books has a photo...

RE: Wilkinsons
I do have Wilkinsons in my family, who seem to come mostly from Virginia. That is an area of my tree that I had not explored. If you see any names that ring a bell for you, please let me know. Thanks Barbara!

RE: Wilkinsons
Yes, we will probably find that eventually we have shared relatives. Yours were not far from Caswell, Granville and Person Counties, all near the Virginia line.

I will be glad to look for information about that church your listed. Someone must have the records, it's just a matter of finding them.

I too, spend mot of my time on genealogy and if you come this way, I'd love to take you to the cemeteries in this area. The one where I just took the Wilkinson family members is a nice little cemetery, where my husband and I already own plots. His parents, grandparents, etc. are buried there.

I'll look in my tree from Wilkinsons. My tree is not as large as yours, but it is growing by leaps and bounds. I was doing this on paper only 3+ years ago, so I am still adding people from those records.

You're right, going to the cemeteries is more fun when you go with someone else. That would be fun!

RE: Permelia Wilkinson
Do you have a GPS navigator? If you do, check to see if you can access latitude and longitude at the point where you are standing. That way you can post that location when you create a new memorial on Find a Grave. I wasn't sure if my GPS had that capability, but was happy to find that is does, especially since some of the old family cemeteries I visit only have latitude and longitude for and address. I've used this as a means to give location for graves I've found where there are no plots, sections, etc.

Do those churches have records of burials. I found one very old church that was completely unmarked with no drive through roads, but the church had records, so I could find the sites I was looking for. That was lucky though. Many do not.

Let me know if you ever come through Alamance County. There are some really interesting old cemeteries here.

RE: Wilkinsons
I agree that it is indeed a small world and when you start researching genealogy that becomes very clear. I've made contact with distant cousins through Ancestry. Since all of my grandparents, my parents, and all except one uncle have passed away, I really enjoy meeting new family through genealogy.

My tree is named Hall and Rimmer Combined Family Tree. Take a gander at it if you want, you may see an ancestor. Virgilina puts you close to my Caswell, Person and Granville county ancestors. We may find out that we are related.

I do agree that seeing where our ancestors were laid to rest does make them come alive. It's a pleasure to meet you!

RE: Permelia Wilkinson
I'm so glad! It makes me happy to know that these photos will bring joy to others.

My e-mail is on my profile page so if I can help you in this area of NC, let me know. I knew Wilkinsons when I was young, in school. Perhaps some were your husband's relatives.

Again, I am thrilled that I was able to help and please feel free to email me directly if I can help you in any way.

Much love,
Tammy

RE: Wilkerson Photos
Thank you so much or your kind words. Genealogy is my passion. I have hit "brick walls" in my own family tree, so I am especially happy that I was able to locate your father's great uncle's grave site. I wondered when I saw the request for the three burials with one number in between not mentioned. My first thought was that it was an unmarked grave. I was glad to find his stone there, especially with the proof of his marriage, through the inscription that Permelia was his wife.

Find A Grave has been good to me as well. That is why I volunteer to take the photos. I have had many kind favors done for me and it make me feel good to return those favors.

I am happy to help you in any way that I can. You can contact me if you need any research performed in this area.

W.P. Wilkinson's grave was not surveyed. I'll set up a memorial for him and add the photo of his headstone.

Wilkerson Photos
You are most welcome! I found the husband of Permelia Wilkerson also, so I'm adding him to his memorial at Haw River Cemetery.

He is W.P. Wilkerson.

Also, Permelia's stone, is as you will see, broken, and I had to push back soil to find her death date: Feb 22, 1904. It's hard to see in the photo so I added it to the caption.

One I transcribed the inscription. These were well loved people.

So glad this will help your family!

RE: John Harper Tuck
Hi,
I think I have all of them connected now. I will keep them and add anything you would like for now. Do you know your grandmother's maiden name? It would be good to have that and also where each one was born and died if you know that info. You are welcome to write me direct also. Jorga1933@sbcglobal.net

RE: Mark A. and Sophronia Burnett
Hi Barbara,

The headstone you found for Mark and Sophronia (Minerva Loftis) Burnett belongs to the grandson of Mark Alexander Burnett (d 1883) and Sophia Weston Crowder Burnett. J. W. Burnett (d 1904) was the son of Mark and Sophia and the father of the Mark Alexander Burnett (d 1930) who married "Fronie" Loftis. I assume that you are viewing the headstone in Gravel Hill Cemetery at Buffalo Springs. The granddad (my gg-granddad) Mark is probably buried with Sophia in an unmarked grave in Rehoboth Cemetery at Phillis, just outside Boydton in Mecklenburg County. The graves were most likely moved there from the Burnett Family Cemetery when Kerr Reservoir was filling.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
John

RE: James H. Tuck 1918-1918
The church is no longer being used on a regular basis but the grounds are maintained. I think I know who is doing the maintenance work around the building. I will contact him and see if there is a record who is buried there.

Alan

PS - I James H Tuck a family member?
