Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a photo volunteer for Western N.Carolina primarily Asheville and surrounding towns.

I am just starting out and will be adding memorials to my list hopefully about twice a week.

If you find a person on my list and they are related to you and you want the memorial transferred to you, click Edit tab, then click Suggest a Correction, and request transfer. That way I know I'll be transferring the correct person to you.

I will NOT transfer my immediate relatives. That is back 4 generations according to Find A Grave. I would be more than happy to share it, and always love to meet new relatives.

"I Appreciate Findagrave.Com"

-Dear Ancestor-

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

Thomas H Carswell
Hello Julia

My grandfather John Osborne Carswell is a brother to your great-grandfather Abel Hamilton Carswell.
I note that you have noted on Thomas H Carswell's find a grave page that you think that you have found him, but not quite certain. I have been searching for several years and cannot find anything on him other than a letter in the Hoffman family history book that indicates he was killed by Daniel Smith son of Abram Smith, this letter was dated November 25, 1866. Please advise me if you have any additional information.
My e-mail address is
My phone number is 704-276-1160.

Please refer Transfer Guidelinesprior to requesting a transfer.
A memorial dated 1766 is way yon too old to be transferrable plus I know several others who have supplied information and actually trekked through the woods with me to see this cemetery who are also direct descendants.
I will add info as asked and do so in a timely manner.
Looking much forward to working with you on this.

Maj Charles Swett (# 17321935)
Since Aug. 28, 2013, I have made several attempts to contact you (e-mail & "Edit" tab), but I have not gotten a response. So, I am leaving you a Public Message in hopes of hearing from you.

I would like for you to link Maj Charles Swett (# 17321935) to his parents, Daniel Swett (findagrave # 17321952) and Sarah Hunt Swett (findagrave # 17321964). Or, you could just tranfer my great-grandfather to me; I would much appreciate it.

Thank you,
Mike Sweet

Julia -
Not sure what you are talking about. I checked on my Volunteer Photos for Hillcrest Cemetery and they were all fine or is it another cemetery? Please let me know. Thanks, Pam
