Rust Family Cemetery
I'm hoping you can help. My wife and I are visiting the Morganton area from Colorado and I would sure like to show my wife her Great-great grand parents graves. They are Gibbs' supposedly buried in the Rust Family Cemetery near Bridgewater. The directions to the cemetery are very vague. I was hoping since you have information about this cemetery, I was hoping you might give me some insight on finding this hidden gem!

Thanks in advance,

Mike Hyatt

Moore cemetery Worry, Burke county
Dear BurkeGen

I wonder if I could impose and ask you to send an e-mail to referencing this cemetery. Findagrave took 2 of my memorials away and gave them to a woman who claimed they were buried here. The possibility that my ancestors are here is laughable. Jesse Sr Moore 143878065 and
Alley Johnson Moore 143878192 died in the Globe, Caldwell county and were washed away in the flood of 1916. They had no family or connection to this cemetery. I have given proof after proof they lived in the Globe, they died in the Globe and the flood washed away the church, school and cemetery in 1916, Find a Grave has yet to correct this mistake. Please if you could drop them a note that there is no evidence of these 2 being buried here. Thank you, Barbara Campbell

James Marler Table Rock NC
Hi, I have been looking for a few years now for info on James Marler. I have some possible connections to him. IF Martin is really his Grandson, that could be a Samuel Martin (Who's name has been linked to a brother of the name of Alfred) Alfred is then linked for sure to his son James Benton Marler. I wish I could link Major James Marler to my family for sure and if this is the case then I wish I could find more info on Major James Marler and who his father was. (Do you know of, heard of, or know where to get any info on that family?) I am in Ontario Canada and it is hard to get info from the USA when you don't live there :) Thank you for sharing the stones since it is a high possibility that I could be related to James and Francis.

RE: William F. Gibbs Error
Hello - I'm not sure what your message is referring to. Maybe it was in response to something done a while back???? Please clarify. Thanks, Julie
