Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.

Two quotes worth remembering:

"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

Cudds, Lawsons, many NC & SC names
Doc, thank you so much for your work with Find A Grave. In the 80's I started my research for my genealogy. At that time I was able and visited many cemeteries, NC and SC. Now because of age and health, I depend solely on Find A Grave. I no longer can visit the cemeteries. Thank you so much that you have given so much time to Find A Grave so that you can help ME among others. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos. I am trying very hard to get as much of my family as possible on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker for my descendants and others. I hope they will find their heritage thru this. God bless you in your helping others like me.

Wise family
My name is Penny Alexander. You have posted some headstone pictures of the Wise family in Lincoln County, North Carolina. They are ancestors of mine. Would you mind if I used your headstone pictures on my family tree on

I certainly appreciate the transfer of Michael Craft at Mt. Zion in Cherryville. What a special gift, and I will certainly take good care of him. Thank you for creating his memorial.
