Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in North Carolina, but have also lived in New York, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Washington DC, and South Carolina. Graveyards and tombstones have always been a curiosity to me. I was a data entry operator for many years, also a history and genealogy addict. Since being retired, I've put those things to use to help make sure that people (and pets) that I put into Find A Grave are more than just names on a tombstone. I hope to help people find their relatives and friends that might have been hard to find otherwise.

My earliest known ancestor was Robert Brisko, who was born around 1220 in Brisko, Cumberland, (now known as Cumbria), England. I'm also a direct descendant of John Rolfe and Pocahontas---and of Robert Ryves of Damory Castle, Blandford Forum, Dorsetshire, England, said to have been a clothier to Henry VIII (and happy to know that he survived long enough to have descendants).

My husband is a direct descendant of Henry and Eulalia Burtt, who came from England in the 1630's and settled in Springfield, Massachusetts. Henry Burtt was one of the first settlers of Springfield, and most all of the really early settlers of Springfield are related either directly or indirectly--probably becausee he was the father of twelve children.

I would like to add that I do try to cooperate with everybody, but expect to be treated with decency and respect when being asked to make any type of change. I don't appreciate being bullied or demanded to do something without the consideration of a "please" or a "thank you".

Hi! I appreciate all of your hard work gathering this information. I am the niece of Doris Reardon. I wanted to correct her name....she was Doris Lennice Holder Reardon.
Her father was Orval Rice Holder

I don't see any death certificate posted, but if birth & death dates are really different then it's probably another Walter Rankin.

Date of birth of Sarah on tombstone: 9 February 1854.

Thought you might want to correct the typing on her family page. Day and year are incorrect there.

RE: Emmett Frank Goodwin
I've deleted the duplicate. You have a close connection while I simply created his memorial as part of a general canvass of the cemetery. Glad to have Mr. Goodwin's memorial in your care!

RE: Emmett Frank Goodwin
Thanks for your message. Best to keep your original memorial. It came first! Please update yours to show Mr. Goodwin buried at Friendship Methodist in Monticello, Guilford County. ( I'll add my marker photo to your memorial. Let me know when you've made the update and I'll delete the one I've created. Thanks! Perry
