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, and I always wanted to know something about the people buried there. 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.

With this exception, I am not one of those people that dictates rules (including my own quirks) to everybody. Everyone has their own way of doing things, and it is not my way to tell other people what to do, nor do I appreciate anyone dictating to me. This is supposed to be a service to people for remembering their friends and relatives, for history, and for genealogy. Also--if anyone duplicates any of my entries---so be it. I'm not going to whine about it. Someone else can do that.

Since the exact places of some of our ancestors will never be known for sure---like those who were buried on their own property and/or have simple field stones for markers---I believe that those people also deserve to be remembered and connected to their families. So I will gladly connect the "unknowns" since they are just as important links as those we do know about. It does help to know the dates if possible. But then you do have some that can't possibly still be alive--and even they deserve our respect.

I would like to add that I do try to cooperate with everyone, and am happy to do so, but expect to be spoken to with decency and respect when being asked to make any type of change. (As I've come across a few people that were downright pushy and rude). Advice to nasty people---"let sleeping dogs lie".

RE: Mary M. Fulp
thank you! I think it is possible that they sent her back if the stone is located next to the other relatives. BUT- who knows? I will email the person who posted the info online and see what I might find out. Indiana has very little on find a grave. Do you know if the stone is next to the other relatives? You have already been kind enough to transfer some of my relatives. My other direct descendants are:

RE: Abner Pryor 1792 ?
Thanks for your response. I have researched the John Henry Pryor/ Margaret Gaines line in depth. Their son Abner died several years before my Lucy was born in 1791. If she is part of this family, and I am sure she is,she would be a granddaughter.
She just doesn't have any history before she married Adam Petree in 1812 in Surrey Co. NC. I've often wondered if she was married to a Pryor and he died...I just have a BIG brick wall. Thanks for your help ....

Abner Pryor 1792 ?
I was wondering if you know anything about Adam's parents and siblings. I have a 4th great grand mother named Lucy Pryor....who married an Adam Petree in 1812 in Surrey Co. An Abner Pryor signed the marriage bond with the time of the marriage. I believe it was your Abner but I can find no parentage for Lucy. The 1850 Indiana Census lists her place of birth as Virginia in 1791. Lucy and Adam moved to Indiana in 1812. No reference to her family has been found...I hope you can tell me about Abner's line.

Sincerely, Rebecca Bandy

RE: Jennie Wood
I forgot about the edit tab and accidently hit enter. Please connect her to her husband Emmett Wood. I put the parents in but forgot her husband. She is my great grandmother's sister.
Thanks Timmy Tilley
