I like cemeteries because they are like outdoor museums whether for my own family history or a community's history. The grave-markers are sometimes the only image one has of an ancestor. Truly, the only way to 'preserve' a cemetery is to list the inscriptions (aka 'read a cemetery')and take photos of the grave markers. |

Thank you for the suggestion! That is exactly the stone I was talking about yesterday.
I will add the details you agree with and try and check census records. I am not nearly as good as Ann at researching. I feel like I still have so much to learn.
Have a wonderful day and feel free to use my yahoo address for messages.

|Christine Hughes Arrington||Rushing cemetery plots|
You have done a lot of research at Hillcrest located in Monroe.
Can you add the graves of George, Gillie, John and Ella Rushing? They are my grand parents and great grand parents, respectively. They are all buried together in a small family plot that was bought in the early 1950s. Also included on that plot are the graves of German and Katherine Harkness, Jacob and Bessie Page (Paige). I saw the graves of Cecil and Henrietta Marshal, my great uncle and aunt.
In the old city cementary at Hillcrest are 2 young counsins that were twin girls. One died after a few hours of being born, the other died some months later of meneningitis (sp). I visited there a couple of years ago, trying to find their graves, but I could not. Do you have a way of finding out where their graves might be?
|Christine Hughes Arrington||Memory of Ms. Chrestfield|
When I was growing up in Monroe, NC during the 1950s and 60s, I heard my mother Ella Rushing Hughes speak of Ms. Annie Chrestfield a lot. My mother always referred to her as "Miss Annie Chrestfield."
Ms. Chrestfield was well known, respected and liked throughout our community in Monroe. Thank you for remembering her.
